Why this train does not have stoppage at Yelahanka junction railway station?
Kongu booking data shows not much traveler in CBE-YNK Stretch!! Has checked two SL coach with just 2 booking from Tirrupur-YNK..undoubtedly traveler exist in YNK-KCG-NZM stretch but CBE-YNK demand hardly exist!!
If CR and SR are so much reluctant towards schedule in their zones for LTT CBE and both Chalukya, it is better SWR ask them to run in a way not entering SWR. Like NCJ CSTM now skipping KJM route and goes via Katpadi Madanapalle.
Atleast SWR can think of good train between Mumbai Bangalore.
There is no doubt that Bangalore requires a faster dedicated train to Mumbai. In the recent past had also heard that MP from Mysuru was demanding extension of Udayan to Mysuru ...not sure what is the status on that. I am sure there will be lots of people in Bangalore who will object to that. Kurla Bngalore was extended to CBE earlier. Dont have much idea about Chalukya exp whether it used to terminate at YPR or not.
Why can't they upgrade Udyan to a SF between Mumbai and Bangalore? E.g. Pushpak express is now being upgraded to LHB with more number of AC coaches. Udyan deserves to have the same kind of status.
Chalukya Express used to run between DR( CR) - YPR 6 days a week. Later, it got extended to PDY on 3 days and TEN on other 3 days. Weekly once Sharavati Express runs on the same slot.
Pantry Car is operational in this train. Please update accordingly.
Waiting for bedding to resume now.
I heard news that bed rolls will be provided soon but we need to buy it paying extra money.
Its not the correct way IR is just trying indirect ways to earn more.
