It was pleasant seeing the crops

Sep 10, 2015
Mode of Transport: Train

I planned a day journey to enjoy the post monsoon crops on the way. I booked a window seat in non-AC compartment so that the window is open to experience the gentle breeze.

Only Rs. 65 for senior citizen female.

I wondered the magnificence of world trade center near Yeshwanthpur itself.

Then the coconut, date, arecanut trees all the way from Tumkur to Tiptur. Especially the arecanut trees look like a cobweb removing stick.

Near Bhadravathi, the MPL factory and flame from the chimney can be seen for quite some distance. I was told that the factory plants as many trees as use for making paper.

Definitely I enjoyed the small lakes with some birds and the beautiful sunset.

All sorts of local snacks were sold. There is a TV with cartoons, ads and song sequence. It felt like a muted TV because there was so much noise in the compartment.

Somehow 2 beggars also got entry - not troublesome.

Unlike other junctions, Shimoga junction is a small station. One should get down at Shimoga Town to get autos and taxis.

Very convenient train after lunch get in and get down by dinner time. Enjoy the snacks sold in the compartment though there is no pantry car.

The train was in time. The train arrives at platform 10 which is the back of city station. Since it is intercity one has to choose the bogie which goes to Shimoga and get in.

Nice train journey and good service

Jun 25, 2015
Mode of Transport: Train

One of the good journeys I recall in Karnataka, where services are really good. It's a seating car, where I found quite a cooperative crowd, most of them going for holidays with their young ones. I stepped down quite early as it was my first visit to Shimoga.

AC Chair car facility was comfortable,Toilets in the train need to be improved.

Oct 12, 2013
Mode of Transport: Train

I picked this train as the timing was comfortable for me. I could complete some of my work in Bangalore city during the day have a good filling lunch and then leave for the city railway station in time for the train. The AC Chair car facility was comfortable. Since I traveled during a long weekend holiday, the chair car was noisy with weekend holidaymakers, arrogant chattering kids running around the aisle while their parents blabbered with equal ferocity. rnrnVendors vending eatables and soft drinks were a frequent source of irritation especially for one who just want to relaxed and enjoy the ride. rnrnToilets as in most Indian Railway Trains need to be maintained for cleanliness. rnrnI found the leg space in the chair car uncomfortable, without adequate foot rest, especially since I had a knee injury. rnrn

No indication where the bogie arrives

Sep 10, 2015
Mode of Transport: Train

I came back by AC 3 Tier compartment. The train comes from another station. So at 10:30 pm one has to get in and go to bed straight away. It is good so that one can catch up with some sleep. It arrives at 4:30 am itself. Very early to wake up.
at Bangalore it arrives at the back of station. The lifts work only after 6 am. Luckily prepaid autos come at regular rate itself from the station. The sheets were clean and kept readily at the berth. At Shimoga station there is no ramp. At the other end only level crossing of railway lines is available for senior citizens.
