No no, the train should be introduced (both ways) in such a way that, it should depart Yesvantpur between 11am to 1pm, and it should reach Mumbai next day morning between 6-8. Stoppage should be only main junctions. DMM-GTL-KLBG-SUR-PUNE. This stations have high response to all mumbai trains. Firstly, it should be introduced bi-weekly. After the response, in 3months, it should be made daily. Similar to Howrah duranto.

Route via Hubballi can become shortest, after completion of new Tumakuru-Davanagere line. We have to wait till that time.

No .It will be slightly longer than existing GTL-SUR Route. Also It will be slow due to lot of curves and terrain.

Ideally route via Gtl-Klbg will be faster and quick. Hope railways consider this while introducing, to start with they can introduce a bi-weekly via this route and later on one more via Ubl can be introduced.

With the symbolic running of two trains on two railway tracks, 18-km of doubling line between Tumukuru and Gubbi, which falls under the Bangalore Railway Division, was commissioned on Wednesday.
This will pave way for faster running of trains between Bengaluru and Hubballi when the entire stretch is doubled. According to Chief Administrative Officer, Constructions, K C Swami, “This is the second part of the 96-km doubling project between Tumukuru and Arasikere. The first doubling stretch of 36km was commissioned between Arasikere and Karadi on November 29, 2018. We expect the entire doubling on the line to be ready within two years,” he said.

if it will have any immediate impact, Swami said, “Though one stretch is doubled, line blocks will be effected along other portions to complete the project. The real impact on trains can be seen only when an entire line gets ready.”
Now, doubling is ready between Tumukuru and Hubbali but not between Bengaluru and Tumukuru.

I guessed those might be shunters but was not sure. Then shunters might be enough as they don't move heavy load inside JSW plant. I think JSW doesn't require regular locos like WDGs for inside plant operations

I also guessed the same. Then I also imagined that for shunting purpose WDG4 will not require. Then I again imagined that suppose BAY-UBL and TNGL-RNJP line gets electrified. Then to bring freight from JSW e loco will be not possible so to bring and stationing at Ballari or Tornagallu Jn those WDG4 may require so that the remaining would haul by e loco.

⏺️Other industries have electric line as their siding like /blog/post/4240510 and /blog/post/4239408
⏺️Lines which bring raw material and send finished product might get electrified as Toranagallu - Ranajitpura section is being electrified. You are thinking of only Ballari - Toranagallu main line. Think on other side of Toranagallu - Ranajitpura line. If Iron ore comes from Donimalai (loaded at Ranajitpura station) then where loco change must happen from electric to diesel? Then loco change can't happen in Toranagallu - Ranajitpura section
⏺️Even if JSW sidings will not get electrified soon,

then loco change from electric to diesel at Toranagallu station will be handled by IR itself not JSW. IMO JSW locos (whatever type) will be restricted for usage within plant only not outside plant

किसी के लिए भी उसका नाम काफी मायने रखता है। खासतौर पर बात अगर किसी जगह की हो तो ये इम्पॉर्टेंस और भी बढ़ जाती है। दुनियाभर में ऐसी कई जगहें हैं, जिनके नाम बेहद ही अजीबोगरीब हैं। हालांकि, इस मामले में इंडिया भी किसी से पीछे नहीं है। आज हम आपको यहां के कुछ ऐसे स्टेशनों के नाम बताने जा रहे हैं, जिसके बारे में सुनकर आप अपनी हंसी नहीं रोक पाएंगे। कहीं सिंगापुर रोड तो कहीं चिंचपोकली जंक्शन...
आज तक आपने कई जगहों की यात्रा की होगी। लेकिन जरा सोचिए अचानक आपकी ट्रेन एक ऐसी जगह जाकर रुकती है, जिसका नाम सिंगापुर रोड हो तो आप यहीं सोचेंगे की ये तो एक देश है। लेकिन आपको बता दें कि सिंगापुर

रोड का नाम का जगह इंडिया में भी है, जो कि ओडिशा में पड़ता है। यहां रहने वाले लोगों को सिंगापुर देश का जरूर फील आता होगा।
