The South Western Railways will start working on the proposed terminal at Cantonment Railway Station in May when officials hope to operationalise the seven-platform terminal at Byappanahalli.
Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of an event here, SWR General Manager Ajay Kumar Singh said officials will take up the work on Cantonment terminal in two months. "Officials will take up the work after finishing work at Byappanahalli," he said.
The terminal at Byappanahalli is expected to decongest Yashwantpur and Krantiveera Sangolli Rayanna stations. 
of State for Railways Suresh Angadi said more train services would be introduced once Byappanahalli terminal is operationalised. "I have told railway officials that mere inauguration of the terminal will not suffice. We need to introduce some trains," he said.
Earlier, Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa flagged off the increase in the frequency of train Shivamogga-Chennai-Shivamogga Tatkal Express (06221/06222) from weekly to bi-weekly.

HUBBALLI: The South Western Railway had promised to upgrade the rake of popular Janshatabdi train with the advanced Linke Hofmann Busch (LHB) coaches by September last year. Five months have passed since but there is no progress in this regard.
Railway users of this region have been demanding comfortable coaches. Their grouse is that the present Integral Coach Factory (ICF) coaches have less headspace and legroom and one can't sit comfortably.
Janshatabdi is a popular train running between Hubballi and Bengaluru since the past 25 years and it always has high occupancy. The
train is also popular between Hubballi and Bengaluru. Passengers prefer this train since it is one of the fastest trains between the two cities and runs during day time. The occupancy rate of the train is very high despite the fact that amenities in the coaches are not good.
Software engineer Pradeep Tandavpur , who is a frequent traveller, said that the seats of ICF coaches are not comfortable. Day travelling in congested coaches makes it more stressful, he added. "The SWR has provided LHB coaches to many trains. The recently
launched super fast express between Belagavi and Bengaluru
has been replaced with LHB coaches. Then why not Janshatabdi?" he questioned.
Pratap Huggi, a resident of Annigeri said that though the train is fast and punctual, bad amenities make the journey unpleasant. E Vijaya, chief public officer, SWR, said that zone is receiving LHB sleeper coaches but seating coaches are yet to arrive.

lhb se comfort barega,dirty coaches nahi rahega.Ye kis taraf ka guarantee hei
maintenance agar sahi hoga then icf coaches bhi bohut jaida comfortable,speedy ho ja ta hei.But train ka purana seats ko replace nahi kiya saalo se then comfortable,kiya halat orbhi kharap ho jata hei.
Deccan queen isse bhi old train hei but usme travel karne se itni comfortable feeling hoti hei jo lhb me bhi nahi aati.MAANLIYA lhb isko provide kar diya ,i am 100% percent sure ye complaint phir se aayega coaches ka halat kharap ho gaya.
ekhi cheez samaj aata nahi,"jab koi lhb hone ka baad safar karta hei bolta hei bohut comfortable hei and usko dekh ke sab dance karne lag jata hei.ARE bhai uo manufacture ke bhad pehele run hei ,comfortable to hogi.
Gitanjali,bihar sampark kranti ka sleeper coaches ka halat dekhega then pata chalega.So please don't request railways to convert trains because of poor maintenance .Man liya railway provide kiya but uske baad kiya......
instead of converting trains they should concentrate on maintenance .Har din sun raha hei lhb train do hisse me bhag ho gaya,engine khul gaya,coach haya me ,.etc.aise to bari accident ho sakta hei.They are claiming that lhb are fully safe and isme insaan marega nahi but aise chalta rahe to sorry to say ........!.......

While the faithful can offer namaaz on trains, what harm is a Lord Shiva photo set up by some devout employees for the successful inaugural run of a train, questioned railways minister Piyush Goyal.
A day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi flagged off the Kashi-Mahakal Express on Sunday, a row erupted over “reservation of a berth for Lord Shiva” in B5 coach. Berth no 64 was elaborately decorated with photo frames of Hindu gods with a temple image too supposedly drawn.
Reacting to news reports that the railways has reserved a berth for
the deity, AIMIM’s Lok Sabha MP from Hyderabad Asaduddin Owaisi has on Monday tweeted an image of the preamble of the constitution tagging the PMO’s twitter handle.
The Union Railways Minister who was in Hyderabad on Tuesday to remotely inaugurate several projects in the two Telugu states, responded.
“The inaugural run on Sunday was not for the public. Some employees have put up some photos of Lord Shiva according to their religious beliefs. What problem can anyone have when there are no passengers on the train,” Goyal questioned.
“I too set up Lord Ganesh, Sai Baba, and Lord Ram photos for worship when I am travelling by train. Some people also do namaaz in trains; they were never stopped,” the minister further said.
The railways too has in the meanwhile clarified the shrine as only temporary, for the initiation.
The train connecting three jyotirlingas Mahakaleshwar in Ujjain, Omkareshwar near Indore and Kashi Vishwanath in Varanasi, would begin its commercial regular run from February 20.
“No train has ever been reserved or in future will be reserved on the basis of religion,” the minister stated, while he came down heavily on Owaisi.
“People do not believe in Owaisi’s tweets. 99 percent of his talk is baseless, intended to create rift in the society. He should make himself aware of the facts and stop misleading people,” Goyal commented on Owaisi’s tweet.
The minister also hoped that “wiser counsel would prevail” (on the Telangana government), which he labeled as acting on behalf of Owaisi, and it would retract on its opposition to the Citizenship Amendment Act.
Since CAA is now a law of the land, no state cannot oppose it. They must implement the national law, the union minister stated.

Stations:  Anand Vihar Terminal/ANVT  
As part of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Fit India campaign, such machines will be installed in select railway stations across the country
If you squat for thirty times, you will get a free railway platform ticket, says Indian Railways. As part of the railways' Fit India initiative, the national transporter has started installing 'Fit India Squat Machine'.
First such machine was installed in Anand Vihar Railway Station in national capital. A person has to do 30 squats in 180 seconds in front of the automatic machine, and it will generate a free platform ticket.

As part of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Fit India campaign, such machines will be installed in select railway stations across the country, Indian Railway Stations Development Corporation (IRSDC) Managing Director S K Lohia, said.
The installation of such machines not only serve the purpose of Fit India campaign goals but also to make the station interactive and fun for passengers, he said.
This was the first such kind machine installed in India while in many foreign countries, such machines are common in railway stations and airports, Lohia said.
The machine received massive response from public as more than 200 people tried it since its installation on Thursday. Even some people tried to beat the target by completing the task before 180 seconds, he said.
Since the machine is automatic, there is no need to press any button. Once a person starts doing squats in a designated place in front of the machine, it starts counting. It also senses if the person is doing the squats properly or not, he said.
The railways also started installing other health-related amenities including a pulse health machine kiosk, which measures various health and wellness parameters (body composition analysis, blood pressure etc.) and gives indications of potential lifestyle diseases with personalised recommendations, at stations.
Railways also plans to start "Dawa Dost", a generic medicine store in stations for passengers.

The Indian Railways has registered its best-ever safety record in the current financial year with no deaths in the last 11 months, the national transporter said on Tuesday, adding that this was a milestone in its 166-year history.
In a statement, the railways said from April 1, 2019 to February 24, 2020, there was no fatality of any railway passenger in any consequential railway accident.
"The remarkable feat has been achieved for the first time in the year 2019-20 since introduction of railway system in India 166 years ago in the year 1853.
The zero passenger fatalities in the last 11 months is a result of continuous efforts by Indian Railways to improve safety performance in all respects," the statement said.
It added that passenger safety being its topmost priority, the measures undertaken for improvement included a massive renewal of railway tracks, effective track maintenance, stringent monitoring of safety aspects, improved training of the railway staff, improvements in the signalling system, use of modern technology for safety works, switching over to modern and safer LHB coaches in phases from the conventional ICF coaches.
"All the above could become possible with inputs in the system in the form of Rashtriya Rail Sanraksha Kosh (RRSK) introduced in the year 2017-18 with a corpus of Rs 1 lakh crore to be spent in the next five years, having an annual outlay of Rs 20,000 crore. With this fund, it has been possible to undertake very critical safety works of urgent nature and the results are evident," the statement said.
