Mangalore/Bangalore train

As a follow on from the first question, does the train from Mangalore to Bangalore run near or through Mysore??? I want to get from Panjim to Mysore and am having problems. It looks like train/bus. I hve had the most amazing info from Steven Ber and don't know how he does it - thanks pal, you deserve a BIG pat on the back.

J: if i remember, i'll ask some locals for the answer to your question.

s: mysore is not on the mangalore-bangalore train route. most people take the train towards banaglore from goa, and get off at arsikere. from there a bus will take you to mysore (a couple hours). or, go further to bangalore and switch to a mysore train. (which takes from 2-5 hrs).

there is also the once a week sharavathi express that comes down here (mysore) from mumbai.

another option if you are interested in doing the coast is to go to mangalore, kannur, or kozhikode, and then bus over to mysore. kannur might be your best option of these (shortest trip), although mangalore will have nicer VIP buses.

Bangalore to Mangalore...buses are the only option..unless you want to have a round about trip all the way thro Kerala and Tamil Nadu...buses are numerous..charge about 250-300 Rs. oneway (normal ones..luxury buses cost more) take around 6-7 hours.
Are we there yet??

There is weekly train from Vasco to Yeshwanthpur (Bangalore). You may board the train at Madgoan. (38 kms south of Panjim). From Bangalore you can take a bus or a train.

I will try to search for info tommorow then reply to this thread.

I agree with the previous poster, the line has still not re-opened.

I was at the India Tourism Office (London) today and they were telling people the line had re-opened, but I suspect they saw the train details in 'Trains At A Glance' and forgot to notice the bit at the bottom that says "Date of introduction will be notified later".

Please look at this thread, even if you are not in India.: Have you seen Jonathan Spollen?

He could be anywhere now: You might have met him, be able to help, or give information.

Thanks ken for the info on transport to Mysore. We are staying in Coonoor for Xmas and I think it would make sense to travel to Mysore AFTER that. Cheers pal.

Dear jhardikar,
The SWR has planned two daily trains between Yeshwantpur and Mangalore.
====
The 6515 Express departs from Yeshwantpur at 5.30 hrs. with 2A & SL Accomodation and reaches Mangalore at 15.20 hrs., thus taking 10 Hours to cover 402 Kms. This Rake goes back to Yeshwantpur via Mysore as 6518 which departs at 19.30 hrs. and reaches Yeshwantpur at 8.45 hrs. next day morning via Mysore & Bangalore City, thus taking 13 Hrs.15 minutes to cover 189+119+139 = 447 Kms.
-----------
The 6517 departs from Yeshwantpur at 19.00 hrs. and reaches Mangalore at 8.00 hrs. next day morning. This rake goes back to Yeshwantpur as 6516 which departs at 8.55 hrs. and reaches Yeshwantpur at 19.30 hrs.
==============
This 'action' will turn into reality only after completion if Subramanya Road-Sakleshpur MG Section (55 Kms.) into BG, out of the total stretch of 189 Kms.
===============

Dear sandyandjim,
Your observation:-
""I want to get from Panjim to Mysore and am having problems.""
===============
The 7312 Vasco-Chennai Express departs from Vasco on FRIDAYS at 14.45 hrs. and reaches YPR next day morning at 5.45 hrs. next day morning.
----
The 7310 Vasco-YPR Express departs from Vasco on MONDAYS & SATURDAYS at 20.30 hrs. and reaches YPR at 11.00 hrs. next day.
---
However, 6202 Express departs from Dharwar at 19.40 hrs. (Daily) and arrives in Mysore at 6.10 hrs. next day morning.
--------
If the tri-weekly trains from Vasco does not suit your plan, perhaps, you may come upto Dharwar by road and get into 6202 to straightaway l;and in Mysore - without touching Bangalore!!!!!!.
=====================

Dear Shri Prasad Gaaru,

I am reviving this topic after long time...The timings of 6515/6516 is only a suggestion and I think will not be put into action.

Who will come to YPR at 05:30 Hrs ???
What about the 'n' number of crossings that take place between YPR and dodbele Railway stations which we were discussiong in IRDB ???

As you already know....SWR (SR few yrs back) has published many such timings but never turned into reality.

Here is an update as on 24.09.2005 ......

Dear Shri Prasad Gaaru,

Presently railways have dumped ballast, sleepers and rails alongside Chichbanvar-Gollahalli Section on Bangalore - Tumkur Sectors. But the work has never taken off.

You already know that very recently the SBC-TK section was made tokeless.

Hi jhardikar

Its good someone is heading to my hometown, i am Basically from Mangalore. But i work in Bangalore. At present there are no trains between Mangalore and Bangalore. But there are more than 80 Buses Plying in this route. You can Travel in KSRTC( Goverment Bus) or Many Private Buses that ply in Night. It takes about 8 Hours or less. You can try Volvo 2+ 1 Ac coaches or the New Ac 2+ 1 Sleeper Coaches. Durgamba Motors and Sugama are the two prominent companies they have all types of luxury buses. There is absolute no problem in travelling in Buses They are in Good conditions.

Hi sandyandjim

You want to come from panaji to Mysore. The shortest way is by travelling by a bus. It takes about 12 Hrs to bangalore and from there 3 hrs to mysore. There are plenty of private buses. you can check with paulo travels they have Volvo Ac sleeper buses to bangalore. From here its near to mysore. catch a bus and you will reach mysore in 3 hrs.

Actually two trains have been announced to mangalore from bangalore. The first one goes through mysore. but they may start only by next year.

Dear Ravi Shankar,
Your observation:-
""The timings of 6515/6516 is only a suggestion and I think will not be put into action.""
----------
@@@These timings have already been printed in the Time Table.
----
@@@As you must be aware the 6515 YPR-ARSK-MAQ will return to YPR as 6518 MAQ-MYS-YPR Express,
--------
@@@Likewise, the 6517 will go back to YPR as 6516.
=========
But the running time of 6515/6516, not only needs pruning but also conversion to overnight express, to attract more passengers.
=========
Let us wait and see!!!!
