The Naganahalli Railway Terminus which is critical to handling additional trains to and from Mysuru is set for a derailment due to delay in the land acquisition process.
Though the project was envisaged to be completed by 2024 and included as a priority project by the Railway Board, the work is yet to get started.
The project was mooted to increase the capacity of the Mysuru station to handle additional trains and in its absence the full benefits of track doubling and electrification by way of running additional trains on the

Mysuru-Bengaluru section will not materialise.
In the interim, the Railway Board has sanctioned the yard remodeling of the Ashokapuram Railway Station to create additional stabling lines so as to overcome capacity constraints of Mysuru station. It will be taken up at a cost of ₹15.71 crore.
There is also a proposal for additional stabling line at Belagola on the outskirts of the city where some of the long distance trains can be shunted once their primary or secondary maintenance have been completed at the pit lines in Mysuru.
However, Naganahalli Terminus is critical for the long-term growth and development of the railways and the local economy. Though Mysuru MP Pratap Simha has sought funds to get the projected started, the key issue is land acquisition which is entirely in the domain of the State Government.
The railway authorities have sent reminders to the State Government on the imperatives of expediting the land acquisition exercise, but there reminders have been greeted by silence.
Sources said the project could be frozen and put in the backburner in case the uncertainty prolonged. Railway officials in their letter to the State Government have stated that apart from introduction of new trains and improving connectivity to and from Mysuru, the project will also help in the socio-economic development of the region.
The project will cost ₹494.79 crore in the first phase and the Railway Board on its part had sanctioned ₹19.99 crore for the financial year 2021-22 in anticipation of cost sharing by the State Government.
The project requires 165 acres of land in the first phase during which four platforms, four pit lines and 8 stabling lines is envisaged. The second phase was expected to see the construction of another two platforms all of which would complement the existing six platforms in Mysuru city.
The project was originally mooted in 2007-08 and received administrative nod in 2018 with the timeline for completion set for 2024. But the onset of the pandemic and the financial constraints of the State Government may not see the project materializing in the near future.

So, Naganahalli terminal is for handling trains dumped by Bangalore!!.
Why don't they dump those trains to any locations in their division- like Hosur, Dharmapuri, Bangarapet, Tumkur? Why only Mysore?
As it is, Mysore is not getting any new line towards Kerala. All such dumped trains add more problems for Mysore for introducing new trains to cater to needs of Mysore.

MYS KCG extension is ok, but Basava or KCVL express and their timings are not ok. Are they extended to cater to Mysore or to free up platforms in Bangalore? Even MYS BSB or MYS SNSI are not for Mysore.
If railways care for Mysore, they should extend BIDAR YPR, and Brindavan to Mysore.
Anyway , KSK via KCG is spoiled. Why can't it run from YPR via MYS HAS UBL BAY KCG?!?

In a span of 44-days, the South Western Railway (SWR) ran 233 Shramik special trains transporting more than 3.38 lakh passengers, majority of whom were labourers, to their home towns in 17 States and Union territories of the country.
This ‘service’ has earned SWR Rs 28.9 crore. While the majority of the States receiving the trains have assured of remitting the tickets, and for those States which have not made such commitments, the Karnataka government has decided to foot the bill. Majority of the Rs 28.9 crore has not yet been paid to the SWR.
“The

State government’s have assured of repaying the tickets. Revenue was not the top priority for the railways during the lockdown, but the necessity to transport the stranded people to their home States,” said SWR Central Public Relations Officer E Vijaya and added that a few of the States have already deposited the ticket fares with their respective railway division office.
According to the daily press release, Since May 3, when the first Shramik Express Train commenced its journey from Bengaluru railway station on June 14, SWR has operated 233 trains, majority of which began their journey from Bengaluru division. A total of 195 trains carrying 2.86 lakh passengers were transported from Krantivira Sangolli Rayanna (Bengaluru Station), Bengaluru Cantonment, Chikbanawar and Malur. This was followed by Hubballi division, which operated 21 trains from Hubballi, Hosapete, Bellari and Koppal. Mysuru division saw 12 trains carrying 16,974 passengers depart from Ashokapuram, Kabakaputtur, Hassan and Hosur (Tamil Nadu) to their home districts.
Bihar received a number of trains from Karnataka. As many as 1.07 lakh passengers travelled to various destinations of Bihar in 73 trains. Uttar Pradesh received 51 trains (73,498 passengers) from SWR, followed by West Bengal (27 trains, 40,395 passengers), Jharkhand (21; 30,962), Odisha (16; 24,357), Assam (11; 16,113), while 11 other States received 26 trains with 41,188 passengers. Trains from Karnataka have reached as far as Mizoram, Nagaland and Jammu & Kashmir.
On average, each train carried 1,350 passengers. However, there has also been an exception when the SWR has operated a train from Bengaluru to Guwahati, Assam on June 10 with just 287 passengers followed by Chikbanawar to Udhampur in (J&K union territory) with only 685 passengers on May 17. Whereas a train from Bengaluru cantonment to Balasore in Odisha saw 1,844 passengers travelling.
On 20, May the SWR operated 14 trains to various destination across the country from the three division and transported 21,095 passengers. Similarly, on 17, May SWR had operated 12 trains (16,873 passengers) and 10 trains (13,932 passengers) on May 16. The least number of trains ran on a single day was on June 8 and 14 (one train each, 2350 combined passengers). No trains ran from SWR zone on May 6 and 7.
Meanwhile, SWR received only four Sharmaik expresses from other States. Bengaluru, Hubballi, Yadgir and Vijaypur received one train each. Nearly 1,300 passengers returned to Karnataka in three of these trains.

Close on the heels of extension of Chennai-Bengaluru Express and Hubballi-Bengaluru Vishwamanava Express to Mysuru, the Railways has extended the Kacheguda-Bengaluru Express also to Mysuru.
With the latest extension, Mysuru will have two direct trains to Hyderabad, the other being the Mysuru-Jaipur Express. As in case of the two other trains, the Kacheguda Express will also be extended up to Ashokapuram which is emerging as a second major terminal and will help reduce congestion of the main Mysuru city station.
As per the schedule, train number 12785 Kacheguda-Bengaluru Express will depart

from Kacheguda at 7.05 p.m. to reach Bengaluru at 6.25 a.m. It will depart from Bengaluru at 6.40 a.m. to reach Mysuru at 9.40 a.m. and depart for Ashokapuram at 9.50 a.m. to reach the destination at 10.05 a.m.
In the return direction, train number 12786 will depart from Ashokapuram at 2.05 a.m; reach Mysuru at 2.20 p.m; depart for Bengaluru at 2.45 .m. to reach Bengaluru at 5.45 p.m. It will depart from Bengaluru at 6.20 p.m. and reach Kacheguda at 5.40 a.m. Consequently, the timing of train number 56237 Mysuru-Bengaluru Passenger has been changed and it will depart at 1.45 p.m. instead of 2.45 .m. Also, train number 16235 Tuticorin-Mysuru Express will arrive at 10.10 a.m. instead of 9.45 a.m.
Mysuru MP Pratap Simha said this will provide the people of Mysuru a daily train service to Hyderabad and give a fillip to both tourism and business, besides providing additional train connectivity to Bengaluru. The train will run as a super fast service between Bengaluru and Kacheguda in both directions and as an ordinary express train between Bengaluru and Ashokapuram.
The date of introduction will be announced in due course. Sources in the Railways said the authorities are keen to revamp and upgrade the Ashokapuram station to cater to the public including completing the foot over bridge and relocating the entrance.

i guess 12735 is not so feasible considering the TAT required and also being a full AC ....if they can workout a way to change the return slot of 12736 (which is highly unlikely as if it is starting late from SBC...it will cause ripple effect on 22691 occupancy between sbc-sc also ) by making it start a little later than the current departure and make it work like a complete AC CC train with a fixed discount price like they did with other trains ..it can work

We have to thank that at least we got Hampi exp & Golgumbaz extensions till Mysuru and got intra-state connection to Ballari, Hosapete, BGK, Vijayapura(though little round about route). Otherwise that slots would also have been snatched off by inter-state trains.
