    This will be much needed and comfortable timings between Bengaluru and Mysuru. I recently saw an Chennai-Bengaluru AC Double Decker train at Bengaluru KRS Railway Station platform. Can we have that train too extended to Mysuru? It will be good to have a basket of best trains between Bengaluru and Mysuru at our disposal. Thanks.
