Bangalore - Trivandrum stretch I suppose, is completely electrified as I have seen electric locomotives being attached to the Hubli - Kochuveli express at Yeshwantpur.
Bangalore-Chennai Doubled and electrified. Not sure about the third line, I remember seeing the tripling works near Mukundarayapuram.

For Bangalore-Salem, the route via Bangarpet, Thirupattur is electrified while the route via Hosur, Dharmapuri is not. So, Bangalore-Kochuveli, Ernakulam, Thiruvananthapuram and Hubli-Kochuveli Exp get electric locos while Yesvantpur-Kannur and Yesvantpur-Kochuveli garib rath exp have diesel locos.

Thalassery-Mysore rail line impractical :Railway


Quote:
Kochi: Railway has informed that the construction of railway line through westerns ghats from Thalassery to Mysore will cause high cost and so is impractical. Southern railway deputy chief engineer informed the same as a reply to petition filed by PP Johnson, general convener, Thalassery Mysore railway way line action committee. The division bench comprising chief justice Manjula Cheloor and justice K Vinod Chandran rejected the petition after this.

Rail recollections that go beyond the romance



Musings on track: Bharath Moro’s e-book Trackside is a collection of anecdotes about the Railways, from the interminable wait for delayed trains to chance encounters with strangers and the lives of railway staff.

Free e-book captures the minutiae of offbeat rail travel

Quote:

Like most, Bharath Moro grew up with a strong sense of the romance of the Indian Railways, associated as they are with holidays, window seats, beautiful views, and the array of edible items on sale through the journeys. All this, and more, is captured in Trackside, a collection of railway stories written by him, released online as a free e-book earlier this month.

Trackside is likely to be a railway enthusiast’s treat: its 12 anecdotes are full of minute details capturing the experience of train travel, from the interminable waiting for delayed trains to chance encounters with strangers.

Simultaneously, the collection tries to consciously move beyond the sense of romance; Mr. Moro points out there was no romance in train travel for daily commuters or the staff of the railways. So you encounter Yadaiah, a 56-year-old gangman, who walks up and down the tracks ensuring that nuts and bolts are in place. Another such encounter is with Rupa, a coal scavenger who is so poor she must eat mud for dinner on some days.

Off the map

All the places described in Trackside have railway history or significance, or are something offbeat, says Mr. Moro. For instance, Jharkhand isn’t on most people’s tourist maps. “But for the interested traveller, there is so much to see and learn,” he says.

The Bangalore-based author decides on the destinations for his travel by picking up an atlas and thumbing pages.

There’s only one other criterion: it must not be a tourist haven. “So despite being major railway places, Agra, Jodhpur, Bikaner and Goa were discarded in favour of Koraput, Jharsuguda, Vijayawada and Bodinayakannur,” he writes in the preface.

He admits that he hopes the book will inspire readers in small ways to travel to obscure locations, “and learn how it is for people who live at the margins of society.”

Cogs in the wheel


Another hope is that people gain some insights into how the Railways are run, into “the people who form important cogs in the wheel”, he says.

Mr. Moro, who works at a travel startup, says he compiled the digital book as something of an experiment, which is why the book is available for download free of cost from his website purisubzi.in

No idea How Kerala agreed to be Part of SR railways , when SCR and SWR were created.Anybody have any details pertaining if ever Kerala tried have it's own board for Railways.
The problem that Mangalore faces is the same problem that Coimbatore faces.

The Palghat division was the biggest hindrance for Western TN and Southern KA.
I believe it still poses problems to both it's neighbours.

Hoax call claims bomb planted on Hampi Express

Quote:
The Hampi Express was detained at the Gadag Railway Station for nearly two hours after the railway authorities got a call that a live bomb had been planted on the train on Sunday.

Anonymous caller

According to the sources in the railways, the authorities in Secunderabad received a call from an unidentified person stating that a live bomb had been planted on the train. The railway authorities in Secunderabad immediately alerted their counterparts in Hubli who subsequently halted the train at Gadag station.

The bomb squad and sniffer dogs were immediately pressed into service and the passengers were also asked to alight from the train as a precautionary measure.

The authorities inspected the train to detect the bomb, however, after two rounds of inspection it was confirmed that it was a hoax bomb call. The news brought some relief to passengers.

Train no. 16591 was headed to Bangalore from Hubli via Guntkal.

The train departed from Hubli station at 6 p.m. on Sunday.

It was detained at 7.10 p.m. at Gadag station.

Only after it was confirmed that the train was safe for travel did the authorities allow the train to depart from Gadag at 9 p.m.

Greed and foolishness seem to be going hand-in-hand for them. While Bangalore - Chennai links a good many of the places in their state to both the capitals, it is a fact that Bangalore - Hosur - Salem railway line links many of their tier 2 cities such as Coimbatore, Madurai, Erode, Salem etc. - almost all the important cities in TN after Chennai, to Bangalore by the shortest possible route. They would have been wise to seek the doubling of this route as it benefits more regions in their state than ours, unlike the Bangalore - Chennai line which runs in Karnataka to the tune of 80 Kms.

What's happening on the ground with regard to Bangalore City - Whitefield quadrupling? Railways have been talking about it since quite some time but I am not sure if anything is really happening with it. About an year ago, I remember seeing some civil works going on a little beyond K.R Puram, but I am not sure, if it is regarding this quadrupling project. This seems worse than Bangalore - Mysore doubling, in terms of progress......

That is not the truth. Bangalore-Hosur line till Omalur is under SWR, so TN can't do anything if SWR is not interested in getting it doubled. Also there is a ghat section from between Omalur and Dharmapuri. Doubling any such line that passes through ghat section has its drawbacks.

Bangalore to Salem via Hosur is 218 KM where as via Jolarpet is 269, given the amount of money that will require to double the line, IR would prefer plying the trains via Jolarpet on Electrical locos.

I think KA people should fight with KL because all the trains that were earlier terminating at Mangalore are now extended deep into KL. What do you say about it. It is all economics, running trains till Cochin or Trivendrum is more profitable for Railways.

Similarly you can consider Hyderabad-Vijayawada-Vizag line which was doubled and electrified in the same time-720km.

Our dreams of Tumkur-Davanagere, Hassan-Nelamangala, Dharwad-Belagavi, Haveri-Gadag, Harihara-Kotturu, Bidar-Gulbarga lines are still on paper or some 15% work completed condition.

Pity Karnataka. We need demanding leaders and public at large.

Sorry, you lack the understanding of trunk and non trunk line. Salem-Trivendrum falls under north south trunk line. Hyderabad-Vijaywada falls in Delhi-Chennai Trunk line where as Vijaywada-Vizag falls under Chennai-Howrah trunk line.
There is no point breaking your head over doubling. Major trunk line i.e Mumbai-Chennai line is yet to be completely doubled, section between Gutty-Wadi-Solarpur is still a single track, travelling to and from Bangalore and Chennai to Mumbai takes almost or more than 24 hrs, actually it should be a over night journey. So, stop day dreaming about getting all the lines under SWR doubled, we need to get the major trunk line doubled, it will reduce the travelling time drastically to and from SBC and MAS to Mumbai.

Looking at the Sanjeev Garg pdf file, I now feel that Karnataka Government itself is a hand in the glove, in not allowing adequate passenger train services to Mangalore, for whatever reasons.....

This is what one of the slides says about the stakeholders in HMRDC:

HMRDC Partners

Ministry of Railways, Government of India (40%)

Government of Karnataka (40%)

New Mangalore Port Trust (9%)

K -Ride (2%)

Mineral Enterprises Limited (9%)

Incorporated in July 2003 and operational since May 2006


So GOK has a 42% stake in HMRDC, as I feel that K-Ride is one among the bodies constituted by it to oversee the execution of infrastructure projects being implemented under the PPP model (???)...

My friend. 20 pairs of passenger trains traverse SBC-MYS section everyday. What else do you need to consider it as a trunk line. It is all in the minds
