This is despite the recommendation made by Palakkad Division of Southern Railway
While it has been three months since Palakkad Division of Southern Railway recommended to the headquarters to extend Train No. 16575/16576 Yeshwantpur-Mangaluru Junction-Yeshwantpur tri-weekly Gomateshwara Express to Mangaluru Central, the headquarters is yet to take any decision.
Following public outcry against terminating the train at Mangaluru Junction and stiff demand by Divisional Railway Users’ Consultative Committee member G. Hanumanth Kamath to run it till Central, the Division had in June itself recommended to the headquarters to extend the train to Central.

While non-availability of platforms, pit-lines (for maintenance), and stabling lines (for parking) at Mangaluru Central is a fact, this could be overcome by shifting a few unpopular trains, the Division had told the headquarters.
If that is done, Yeshwantpur-Mangaluru Junction Express — which arrives at Junction at 5.30 p.m. — may be received at Central at 5.45 pm. Similarly, the Mangaluru Junction-Yeshwantpur Express — which now leaves Junction at 11.30 a.m. — may depart Central at 11.15 a.m., the Division had informed.
The Division had identified three not so-popular trains that can be shifted from Central to Junction to facilitate extension of Gomateshwara Express to Central. They were —Train No. 16859/16860 Chennai Egmore-Mangaluru Central-Chennai Egmore Daily Express; Train No. 16857/16858 Puducherry-Mangaluru Central-Puducherry Weekly Express, and Train No. 17605/17606 Mangaluru Central-Kacheguda-Mangaluru Central Bi-weekly Express. It had said an average of 81 passengers boarded Egmore Express every day from Central between November 2016 and March 2017 while 169 passengers boarded the Kacheguda Express, and 190 people boarded the Puducherry Express.
Rail activists and West Coast Rail Yatri Abhivriddhi Sangha have been arguing that train connectivity to the State capital should be provided from the city centre.
Since Gomateshwara Express is being operated out of Junction, which is out of the city, not many people were enthusiastic to utilise the services, said Anil Hegde, Advisor to the Sangha.
Approval needed
Southern Railway General Manager Vashishta Johri told The Hindu that shifting of terminals of trains within the city requires approval from DRUCC as well as Zonal Railway Users’ Consultative Committee (ZRUCC). While DRUCC has already approved the proposal, Mr. Johri did not indicate when the ZRUCC would deliberate the issue. Chief Public Relations Officer P.A. Dhananjayan said headquarters decision cannot be spelt out before it is implemented and added every decision is aimed at enhancing passenger comfort.

"average of 81 passengers boarded Egmore Express every day from Central" - shows MAQ is just a dumping yard for all TN-KL trains. High time they developed a terminal in Malabar region and terminated few trains there. Simply loss to run till Mangaluru when it empties out at CAN/CLT itself.
.
"Even if god grants a boon, the priest wont" - goes the saying. PGT never cares for Mangaluru stations (though the main source of passenger and freight/port revenue), has now (surprisingly) agreed to shift the terminal to MAQ, but now HQ

is sitting on the proposal. Like KL members point out, MAS wont bother to take any decisions regarding PGT. Hopeless situation.

Its time Mangaluru moves out of SR. Palghat just wants to milk all the revenues and made MAQ as a dump for all the useless trains while the only few trains for KA are not allowed to Mangaluru Central.
As the pitline work at Mangaluru Central is expected to continue till December 23, Southern Railway will despatch and receive three trains each from Mangaluru Junction.
Train nos. 16858 Mangaluru Central- Puducherry Weekly Express (Sunday); 16566 Mangaluru Central-Yeshwantpur Weekly Express (Monday) and 17605 Mangaluru Central-Kacheguda Bi-Weekly Express (Wednesday) will leave from Mangaluru Junction instead of Mangaluru Central.
Train nos. 16857 Puducherry-Mangaluru Central Weekly Express (Sunday), 16565 Yeshwantpur-Mangaluru Central Weekly Express (Monday) and 17606 Kacheguda-Mangaluru Central (Wednesday) bi-Weekly Express would be received at Mangaluru Junction, said a press release.
