Commuter Rail

Chamundi Express where people are forces to stand on both sides to get into the train as SWR is having peak time no trains running between 4:30PM to 6:30PM towards Mysore from Bangalore city station.

Will Railway Minister Sadanand Gowda looks into these difficulties faced by people due lack of  Suburban Rail / Commuter Rail in Bangalore.  Will he introdue the already announced MEMU and DEMU services in bangalore within this month ???




Will SWR takes little pain to introduce the Suburban Rail

Ramanagar MEMU - When is the Muhurtham?

162 users have liked.

We have already seen MEMU for Ramanagaram almost 2-3 months back. When is the Muhurtham to introduce it. I needs to directly run till Channapatna which is already electrified, then till Mandya once electrified, instead of Ramanagaram and has to be introduced during evening hours from Bangalore something like 5:30PM to offload Chamundi Express.

I have not even seen test running of electric trains till Ramanagaram yet. When is the Muhurtham?

Even I am waiting for this

update on MEMU Services for Ramanagaram

182 users have liked.

MEMU services to Ramanagaram may be in two months time :

I had chance to meet SWR SDOM Dr Anup Dayanand Sadhu Sadhu and he spared 30 min to discuss on the Proposed Bangalore Suburban Services.

1. Bangalore ( Kengeri ) - Ramanagaram electrification has been offered to CRS recently and once that is cleared and MEMU rake is allocated, services will start.
Morning, After noon and Evening three services will be running from Ramanagram side. Rake will halt at Ramanagaram during night and will start the services in morning towards Bangalore.

Also plans to link with Bangarpet - Bangalore services so that they effectively use both segments.

2. YPR - Hosur two services will be regularized with DEMU service which is allocated new.

3. It seems Minister Roshan Baig had written letter to start rail services to BIAL Terminal Trumpet interchange and some consultant had already prepared for making Trumpet interchange as Terminal with crossing station and presentation was made to SWR with BIAL Management and GOK. This need to be funded by GOK and lets see how this goes.

4. If DEMU rake is allocated for Tumkur section, they will run them as such their is no issue.

5. Updates on MEMU shed at Banaswadi will be ready by Dec'2014 / Jan'2015 and Yelahanka Terminal work progress well as per planned.
