Following Travel Tip applicable from 15-Aug-2018 (TT Change) - till next change.
1) Passengers of 20651 SF Exp. between SBC - ASK, who want to travel beyond Shivamogga Town towards Kumsi, Anandapuram, Sagara & Talaguppa can now take 56276 Mysuru - Talaguppa Passenger at SMET, to travel beyond. There is 1 Hour Buffer time between these two trains.
2) Evening Passengers from Arsikere towards Shivamogga Town who want to travel Faster & reach early (by paying SF Charges) to get down at Important Stations like Kadur, Birur, Tarikere & Bhadravati can take
Good Suggestion but From SMET to TLGP passengers will not get benefited from this because its reach Sagara around 12 at midnight. Instead of This If we travel through BUS from SMET ( Infront of station Bus available to Sagara, Anandapura) we reach Sagara around 10.00 pm. Better we should not wait for 56276. Regularly i am travelling but from AUG 15 i stopped travelling due to timings problem.
Agree. But This can be alternate considering to Road transport & Fares. But 56276 can be speeded after SMET considering there is only Single Crossing - 16228.
