Southern Railway Requested to Extend Mumbai-Thokur Special Train Up To Mangalore Central/Junction

Paschima Karavali Railway Yatri Abhivriddhi Samithi has urged Southern Railway to allow operation of Mumbai Lokamanya Tilak Terminus-Thokur-Mumbai LTT Ganapati Special Express up to Mangalore Central, or at least Mangalore Junction. The special train will be operating daily for a month, from August 13 to September 11 from Mumbai, and from August 14 to September 12 from Thokur. Train No. 01153 leaves Mumbai LTT at 10.15 am to reach Thokur at 4.30 pm the next day, while Train No. 01154 leaves Thokur at 7.30 pm to reach Mumbai LTT at 1.25 pm the next day.

If the service is allowed to be operated till Mangalore Central or Mangalore Junction, which comes under the jurisdiction of Southern Railway, passengers bound for Bantwal and Puttur could board the Mangalore -Puttur Passenger train at Mangalore Junction at 6.10 pm. Passengers bound for Mangalore, Bantwal, Puttur and nearby areas would find it extremely difficult to reach their destination for lack of local connectivity. They could not alight at Surathkal either, as that station is too far away from the city and lacks last-mile connectivity.
