Mangalore - Bangalore Day Train - Reservation Begins on Friday

28 August 2009

Passengers can book their journey by the day-train to Bangalore from Friday afternoon.

An official of the South Western Railway said that since the notification regarding the train arrived only on Thursday afternoon, people were working hard to start reservation from Friday. “By lunch time, they will start issuing tickets. We will try to start it early,” he said.

The inaugural special train will leave Mangalore at 8.40 a.m. and reach Yeshwanthpur at 7 p.m. covering the 396-km distance. The regular train service will commence from September 1. The train will run on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from Yeshwanthpur in Bangalore and on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays from Mangalore.

It will stop at Mangalore Junction, Bantwal, Kabakaputtur, Subrahmanya Road, Sakleshpur, Hassan, Arsikere, Tiptur, and Tumkur.

The train will have one three-tier AC coach, nine chair cars, two second class general sitting-cum-guard vans.
