    It is great to see our MP Pratap Simha is working hard to get Mysore connected with various cities. But unfortunately in his zest he is killing the very purpose of electrification and double tracking of the Mysore – Bangalore route.
    We have 10 Mail/Express Trains between Mysore and Bangalore daily and all of them take 3 hours. Train Number 56281 – Chamarajanagar – Tirupati Express takes 3 hours 20 Minutes and Train Number 16227 – Mysuru – Talguppa Express takes 3 hours 25 minutes. This is same as Passenger trains.

    Newly extended Train Number 12610 – Mysore – Chennai Central is supposed to be a Superfast train but it takes 3 hours on par with the express trains.

    This new proposed extension of train number 12786 – KSR Bengaluru – Kacheguda is going to mock all as it has a huge 35 minutes stoppage in Bangalore apart from 3 hours travel time.

    This is due to the fact that our MP is working on getting the trains extended to Mysore rather then starting the trains from Mysore using the empty slots. Morning 7:20 am, 10:30 am and evening 6:35 pm and 8:10 pm slots should be used to introduce long distance trains.

    Mysore Bangalore journey time of 3 hours is laughable when Pratap Simha and his master are selling idea of Bullet Train in India.
    Instead of getting all the useless trains extended to Mysore and getting photo Op’s all over, M P should concentrate on getting a new train / schedule which brings down journey time to atleast less than 2.5 hours.
