BENGALURU: The newly introduced Vistadome coaches between Yeshwantpur and Mangaluru are seeing massive demand. The high fare, around Rs 1,500, too is no deterrent for travellers seeking to soak in the panoramic view of the Western Ghats in these coaches. South Western Railway (SWR) records show occupancy rate in Vistadome coaches has crossed 100% on most days. On Saturday (July 24), Vistadome coaches from both sides recorded the highest booking: 119% from Yeshwantpur and 120% from Mangaluru. Ingenious rail passengers have found their own way to get around the high fare and have the best of the Vistadome too. “As the fare for a Vistadome coach is high, many people book tickets for non-AC coaches from Yeshwantpur to Hassan and then book another ticket to hop on to a Vistadome coach from Hassan and traverse the ghat section to save money,” said rail enthusiast Abhishek R. The service started from Mangaluru...

on July 11 and bookings are now full. These coaches have been provided in train nos. 06211/06212, 06575/06576 and 06539/06540 operating between Yeshwantpur and Mangaluru. Each train has two Vistadome coaches and each coach can accommodate 44 people. On Saturday, there were 105 passengers in Vistadome coaches that left Yeshwantpur and 106 in Mangaluru. Between July 12 and July 31 (20 days), more than 100% bookings have been recorded from Yeshwantpur on 12 days. The lowest booking (56.8%) was seen on Day 1 of the service from Yeshwantpur on July 12. However, since July 15, bookings have constantly hovered above 94%. On Mangaluru -Yeshwantpur route, 89.7% occupancy was seen on the inaugural run (July 11). The lowest booking was on July 12 (22%). However, bookings have crossed 100% for five days between July 11 and 31. SWR officials said travelling in Vistadome coaches during monsoon is a new experience for passengers, particularly between Subrahmanya Road and Sakleshpur, which has several bridges, waterfalls and tunnels. Aneesh Hegde, chief public relation officer of SWR, said: “We have received an overwhelming response from passengers, especially on weekend.” According to Abhishek, most passengers in the Vistadome coaches are from Bengaluru, who take the day train and then return by bus the same night. “However, passengers travelling in a Vistadome coach from Mangaluru cannot get the panoramic view of the ghat section as the engine in front of the coach blocks the view,” he explained. “We are in talks with Southern Railway to look into the possibility of attaching these coaches on the rear side from Mangaluru Junction too, but there are some practical constraints,” said Hegde.

General Manager Shri Gajanan Mallya appreciated the presence of mind, swift action by the Loco Pilot, Asst Loco Pilot and Guard of the Train No 01134 (Mangaluru Jn – Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus, Mumbai). He also announced a cash award to recognize their good deed.
On 23.7.2021, at about 6.10 AM, while driving the engine of this train from Kulem towards Castle Rock (up the Ghat), at km 39/800 near Dudhsagar-Sonaulim section, the Locopilot of the leading engine Shri Ranjeet Kumar observed that the mud was slipping ahead on the track from the sidewalls of the hill beside the track, due to continuous very heavy rainfall. Sensing danger, he immediately applied emergency brakes and brought the train to a stop.

to mud and soil mixed boulders on the track, the engine got derailed along with 2 sets of wheels, despite the immediate braking. He informed the Station Master of Dudhsagar about the same, to give a message to Control Office, Hubballi.
Upon noticing the emergency brake being applied, the Guard of the train Shri Shailder Kumar applied hand brakes to the Brake Van, which is situated rearmost of the train and then proceeded to the engine. Parallelly the Guard and Locopilot instructed the Assistant Locopilots of the leading and banking engines to place detonators at stipulated distance on the track at both rear & front, and also secured the train by tying chains to the track, placing wheel-skids etc as per standard safety protocol.
Ranjeet and Shailender noticed that from the steep cutting of the hill beside the track, slush and mud were also falling on the coaches immediately rear to the front engine. In order to ensure the protection of passengers, they shifted the passengers from the first 3 coaches to the rear coaches and un-coupled these coaches from the rest of the train.
Displaying alertness, and presence of mind, the crew took instruction from their senior Officers in Hubballi Divisional Control Office and utilised the rear (banking) engine to pull the train with 345 passengers back to Kulem Station. The Guard Shri Shailender Kumar accompanied along with Locopilot Shri SD Meena, Assistant Loco Pilot Shri SK Saini to take the train safely, with passengers to Kulem, while Ranjeet Kumar and his Assistant Shri Hashid K stayed back with the derailed engine near the spot to assist in restoration.
BACKGROUND OF THE GHAT SECTION
The Castle Rock – Kulem Ghat section is 27 km long: it is a single line rail section passing through western Ghats in the uninhabited territory through forested areas.
The entire Ghat section has a steep gradient (1 in 37) and trains are pushed with engines in the rear (for providing sufficient horsepower) in addition to the engines in front. The stations between Castle Rock and Kulem, namely Caranzol, Dudhsagar & Sonaulim are connected only by rail with no road connectivity. This is challenging terrain. On 22.7.21 and 23.7.21, this section witnessed an intense rainfall of 640 mm in 48 hours, which resulted in land-slide.
For displaying courage and exemplary presence of mind in taking swift action to shift passengers to safer coaches, and transport the train back to Kulem, the General Manager SWR Shri Gajanan Mallya has appreciated the Crew and announced a cash reward as a sign of encouragement.
The Crew of this train, have acted as ‘first responder’ at site, even before the rescue team arrived, resulting in saving of the lives of passengers.
