BENGALURU: One of the most jam-packed rail sections between Bengaluru and Chennai has become unpopular of late, thanks to the Covid pandemic. A Super Fast (SF) special launched between the two cities stands cancelled from November 21. 
The KSR Bengaluru-Chennai Central-KSR SF train (Train nos 02027/02028) launched on October 23 on all days of the week, barring Tuesday, was to be operational until further notice from the Railways. It has now decided to stop it due to poor occupancy. 
Divisional Railway Manager A K Verma told The New Indian Express, “We have been

observing occupancy in the past three to four days. The special has only AC First class seating and Chair car in it. Out of 120 seats available on first AC, it had only 7 seats on one day from our end and 25 on another day.” The overall patronage, too, was not promising at all, he added. 
“From the Bengaluru end, the train ran with just 20% occupancy while it had only 10% occupancy when coming from Chennai. Hence, we decided to stop this special,” he said. The KSR Bengaluru-Chennai Central departs from the city at 6am and reaches Chennai at 11am, while the Chennai Central-KSR Special departs from Chennai at 5.30pm and reaches Bengaluru at 10.30pm.

Exactly. Brindavan express does not have AC coaches. 23/24 non AC coaches with 108 seats will bring big relief.

After a gap of 13 years, trains on the Yelahanka-Chikballapur section will now begin running at an increased speed of 100 kmph, which is currently 75 kmph. With this, a total of eight stretches in South Western Railway now have the capability of running trains at an enhanced speed.
“Speed tests were conducted at 110 kmph, an additional 10 km, but trains will run only at a maximum speed of 100 km,” said Chief Public Relations Officer, SWR, E Vijaya. The following sections have been authorised to run at 110 km speed: Baiyappanahalli-Dharmavaram, Penukonda-Sri Sathya Sai Prashanthi Nilayam-Dharmavaram, KSR Bengaluru-Jolarpettai (Double Line), Yesvantpur-Tumakuru (Double Line) and Birur-Chikjajur.
“SWR

is taking up works to increase the speed of its sections by carrying out track renewal works, which enable trains to run at a speed of 110 kmph. All requirements for faster trains, like increase in super-elevation at curves, correction of transition length through tamping, attending points and crossings with track machine, have been completed,” an official release said.

BENGALURU: While Indian Railways plans to complete electrification of all lines in the country by 2023, only 731km (20%) of the 3,566km track network in South Western Railway has been electrified so far.

This means SWR will have to electrify 2,835km in the next three years. Complete electrification is likely to push up speed of trains by 10-15% and provide seamless operations by eliminating detention of trains due to change in traction from diesel to electric and vice-versa. It will also reduce dependence on petroleum-based fuels.

minister Piyush Goyal recently said in the Lok Sabha: "Total broad gauge route in Indian railways is 63,631km. Of this, 39,866km has been electrified as on April 2020." During the session, he said they are planning to undertake electrification of 6,000km each in 2020-21 and 2021-22, 6,500km in 2022-23 and 5,265km in 2023-24.

SWR sources said electrification work is likely to be completed only by 2025. "Work is progressing fast but it is difficult to meet the 2023 deadline because of various factors like Covid-19," said a source. Asked about SWR's poor record of electrification, he said: "Earlier, the railways was giving priority to routes that witnessed high freight movement. It's also difficult to take up work in the Ghat section."

SWR has electrified routes like Bengaluru-Mysuru, Bengaluru-Jolarpettai, Yelahanka-Dharmavaram, Ballari-Kariganur and Toranagallu-Ranjitpura. While it has commissioned electrification of Byappanahalli-Anekal, commissioner of rail safety (CRS) will inspect the remaining Anekal-Hosur section soon. "This year, we are planning to commission electrification of sections like Yelahanka-Devanahalli (23km),Chikkabanavara-Banasandra (105km), Hotgi-Kalgurki (128km), Ghataprabha-Kudachi (47km), Hubballi-Londa (90km), Kariganur-Hulkoti (102km), Kariganur-Harlapur (71km), Talaku-Chitradurga (50km) and Periyanagathunai-Palakkodu (50km)," said E Vijaya, chief public relations Officer, SWR.
Central Organisation for Railway Electrification, Rail Vikas Nigam Limited, Indian Railway Construction Organisation, Rail India Technical and Economic Services Limited and Power Grid Corporation of India Limited are taking up electrification projects. Rail activists have been demanding electrification of routes in Karnataka be expedited. The project will also help SWR replace DEMU with MEMU, which will mainly help suburban passengers.
Of the 23,765km yet to be electrified across the country, Northeast Frontier Railway has to undertake work on 3,793km and North Western Railway on 3,282km. SWR fares the third worst in rail electrification. In contrast, East Coast Railway, headquartered in Bhubaneswar, has completed electrification of its entire 3,853km network.

It is basically poor planning. In addition to electrification , electric loco sheds are to be provided so that the trains can run with Electric engines. Karnataka,Rajasthan are among the mainland states with worst track record of Railway electrification, besides North East. Even today trains to Jaipur ,capital of Rajasthan, run with Diesel locos.

SWR can easily electrify the rest of the sections except the ghats in the Kulem-Castle Rock in Braganza Ghats and Subrahmanya Rd- Sakleshpur in the Shiradi Ghats.

GIPR could electrify the much steeper Bhor and Thull ghats more than 75 years ago, so this should be much easier.

Indian Railways in a bid to increase the speed of the trains has recently removed a reverse curve in the rail track of Jolarpettai station of Chennai division which is under the Southern Railway zone.
The removal of the reverse curve will help in increasing the spped of the trains passing through this station from the current 80kmph to 110kmph.

trains passing through the of Jolarpettai station.
The Ministry of Railways released the pictures of the railway track in both the 'before and after condition', stating, "Indian Railways is fully committed to increase the speed of trains. Today in Jolarpettai station of chennai division, a reverse curve in Rail track with permitted speed of only 80 kmph, is removed and is replaced with a simple curve which will permit speed of 110 kmph."
A ‘reverse curve’ is a curve to the left or right of the railway track which is followed immediately by another curve in the opposite direction because of which the speed of the trains need to be controlled at those points.
In the Union Budget 2020-21, with focus on safety, for elimination of level crossing gates an amount of ₹880 crores have been sanctioned for new road over bridges and Road under bridges particularly on the Golden quadrilateral/diagonal routes (Chennai – Gudur/Chennai – Arakkonam – Renigunta).
Thiswill help the Indian Railways to increase the speed of the trains on these routes.
The budget has also made provisions for the replacement of route relay interlocking (RRI) and A, B and C cabins at Jolarpettai and for this an amount of ₹6 crore has been allocated.
The Railway Ministry has identified the Chennai-Bangalore-Mysore (435 km) route for the high spped rail network
The Railways has identified six sections for high speed and semi-high speed corridors, Railway Board Chairman VK Yadav said, adding a detailed project report on these sections will be ready within a year.
The new corridors will join the under-construction Mumbai-Ahmedabad high-speed route.
Trains can run at a maximum speed of over 300 km/hr on a high-speed corridor, while on a semi-high speed corridor, the maximum speed can go beyond 160km/hr.
