Much Needed Madgaon-Mangalore Central-Madgaon Train Service Likely to Resume Soon

Konkan Railway Corporation Ltd. (KRCL) may resume  shortly as the corporation was sanctioned three sets of Mainline Electrical Multiple Units (MEMU). KRCL had cancelled the Diesel Electric Multiple Unit service some time ago.

The corporation could resume the services of Madgaon-Mangaluru Central-Madgaon passenger train (Train Nos. 70105/70106) using the newly arrived MEMU rake. The date of resumption of service would be announced once KRCL receives the new rakes.

Byndoor Rail Yatri Sangha president and former member of National Railway Users’ Consultative Committee Kunjal Venkatesh Kini has urged the Railways to ensure the Madgaon-Mangalore Central service leaves Madgaon at 5 am and reaches Mangalore Central at 11 am instead of the earlier 12.15 pm. In the return direction, he wants the MEMU to leave Mangalore Central at 3.45 pm, instead of the 2.45 pm earlier, to reach Madgaon at 9.45 pm instead of 10.30 pm, which was the timing of the DEMU service that has been cancelled.

Mr. Kini said revision of the timings and reducing the journey time from 7.30 hours earlier to 6 hours would be beneficial to passengers who travel along the coast for education, business and healthcare purposes.
