The Railway authorities are suggested to utilise the rakes of some trains that remain idle at Bengaluru and extend it upto Mysuru. Amongst them include the prestigious daily running 16593/16594 Bengaluru – Hazur Sahib Nanded Express LHB rake operating via Dharmawaram-Gooty-Guntakal-Mantralayam Road-Raichur-Bidar-Latur-Parbani-Purna-Nanded. The train’s LHB rake arrives at 5.30 am to Bengaluru and departs towards Hazur Sahib Nanded at 22.45 hours everyday and thus LHB rake remains idle at Bengaluru Railway Station for nearly 17 hours everyday.
Further the train’s LHB rake can be considered to be extended upto Mysuru and cater to the daily additional connectivity and high demand. The move will also benefit the daily passengers heading towards Guntakal-Mantralayam Road-Raichur-Bidar-Latur-Parbani-Purna-Nanded stations directly from Mysuru.
Hence, the South Western Railway authorities at Mysuru Division are requested to consider the extension of the daily running LHB rake of 16593/16594 Hazur Sahib Nanded Express upto Mysuru. The suggestion will only help ensure Indian Railways to make optimum utilisation of its LHB rake otherwise idle at Bengaluru Station.
