Karwar-Mysuru train service to begin soon

South Western Railway (SWR) has proposed introduction of a direct train service between Karwar and Mysuru via Mangaluru which is expected to start running soon. The train is likely to run once a week to begin with and later its frequency will be increased to four days a week, SWR sources said.

The SWR has prepared temporary time table for the proposed train and sent it to the Southern Railway and Konkan Railway for their permission. After getting their nod, the proposal will be submitted to the Railway Board.

The service will start once the railway board gives its approval. As per the proposed time table, the train will leave Mysuru at 11.30 pm and reach Hassan at 1.30 am.

It will reach the Mangaluru junction at 8.05 am and arrive at Karwar at 3.30 pm. On its return, the train will leave Karwar at 4.

45 pm and reach Mangaluru junction at 11.45 pm, Hassan at 4.55 am and Mysuru at 7.30 am. Mysuru MP Pratap Simha had urged the railways to run train between Mysuru and Karwar for four days every week.

However, SWR said this would not be possible at present as the railway line on Western Ghat section is facing problems with frequent landslips on tracks..
