Mangalore Junction-Yeshwantpur Day Train Express: People Seek Change in Timing

Railway activists from Mangalore have urged South Western Railway (SWR) for advancing the departure of Mangalore Junction-Yeshwantpur day train express to 7 am.

Train No. 16576 Mangalore Junction-Yeshwantpur tri-weekly Gomateshwara Express leaves Mangalore Junction at 11.30 am and reaches Yeshwantpur at 8.45 pm. Train No. 16540 Mangalore Junction-Yeshwantpur weekly express leaves Mangalore Junction at 9 am on Sundays and reaches Yeshwantpur at 8.20 pm. Their pairing services, Train Nos. 16575 and 16539, should start at 9 am from Yeshwantpur instead of 7 am, the activists said.

They suggested that the Up and Down Bengaluru-Karwar-Bengaluru overnight Panchaganga Express (16595/596) should cross each other at Sirivagilu station on the Sakleshpur-Subrahmanya Road Ghat section to minimise the detention of Bengaluru-Kannur Express on the ghat section. Of late, the Bengaluru-Karwar Express arrives late at Sakleshpur station causing delay in the movement of Kannur Express, they claimed. They demanded that the Mangaluru Central-Mysuru tri-weekly Express (16586) leave Central at 6.55 pm instead of 6.35 pm, and make Train Nos. 16585/586 a daily service.

They demanded a commercial halt for Yeshwantpur- Mangalore Junction/Karwar-Yeshwantpur day trains, and Vijayapura- Mangalore Junction Vijayapura Express Special at Narimogaru and Yedamangala stations.
