One of the premium zones of Indian Railways with some of the best maintained trains and best operations in the country. SWR has announced a slew of 17 trains to be included in the new 2014-15 all-India timetable of the Indian Railways and a lot of timing changes coming into effect from September 01 2014. Sadly, most trains have been slowed down drastically. Here are those details. Click on the train number to view detailed timetable. Dates of introduction of all new trains will be announced later.

New Premium Trains Announced for South Western Railway

22695/22696 Bangalore Yeshwantpur – Jaipur – Yeshwantpur Weekly Premium AC Express (SWR)

Will start running from December 18 2014. Timetable subject to change.

  • 22695 will run from Bangalore Yeshwantpur YPR on all Thursdays to arrive at Jaipur JP on Thursdays. Timetable: Departs YPR departure: 1130 (Thu), Yadgir YG: 2255, Gulbarga GR: 0108 (Fri), Pune PUNE: 0755, Vadodara BRC: 1718, Ajmer AII: 0430 (Sat), arrives JP: 0635 (Sat)
  • 22696 will run from Jaipur JP on all Saturdays to arrive at Bangalore Yeshwantpur YPR on all Mondays. Timetable: JP departure: 2215 (Sat), Ajmer AII: 0025 (Sun), Vadodara BRC: 1135, Pune PUNE: 2110, Gulbarga GR: 0357 (Mon), arrives YPR: 1755 (Mon).

Composition: 02 AC 2 tier, 04 AC 3 tier, 07 Sleeper Coaches, 01 Pantry Car, 02 EOGs (16 coaches LHB rake)

Route and Stoppages: Arsikere (Tech), Guntakal (Tech), Yadgir, Gulbarga, Solapur (Tech), Pune, Vasai Road (Tech), Vadodara, Ratlam (Tech), Chittaurgarh (Tech), Ajmer.

Type: Premium | Fare: Premium | Distance: 2451 km | Halts: 11 | Time: 1d 19h 5m | Avg: 54 kph

Train Review: The very first Premium train to start running as a regular service. After running many types of special trains between Bangalore and Jaipur over the years, SWR has finally settled on this train. Takes the long route via Arsikere and Bellary (with no stops) instead of the straight route via Dharmavaram thereby wasting 230 km and 4 hours for nothing. Has two stoppages at nearby stations of Yadgir and Gulbarga. Should’ve run on the Hubli-Gadag-Bagalkot-Solapur route like the Jaipur Garib Rath Special used to, but this is train seems to be a gift from the ex-Railway Minister to his home districts. Speed and timings are very average despite being a premium train. Only plus point of this train is that it has got a LHB rake.

22679/22680 Bangalore Yeshwantpur – Vaishno Devi Katra – Yeshwantpur Weekly Premium Express (SWR)

Date of Introduction: February 07 2015.

  • 22679 Premium SF train will run from Bangalore Yeshwantpur YPR to Shri Vaishno Devi Katra SVDK Jammu & Kashmir on Sundays. Timetable: YPR departure: 1130 (Sun), Bellary BAY: 1855, Secunderabad SC: 0410 (Mon), Nagpur NGP: 1340, Jhansi JHS: 0043 (Tue), New Delhi NDLS: 0750, SVDK arrival: 1945 (Tue).
  • 22680 Premium SF train will run from Shri Vaishno Devi Katra SVDK J&K to Bangalore Yeshwantpur YPR on Tuesdays. Timetable: SVDK departure: 0515 (Tue), New Delhi NDLS: 1655, Jhansi JHS: 2310, Nagpur NGP: 1050 (Wed), Secunderabad SC: 1935, Bellary BAY: 0600 (Thu), YPR arrival: 1500 (Thu).

Composition: 03 AC 2 tier, 05 AC 3 tier, 07 Sleeper Class Coaches, 02 EOGs (17 coaches)

Route and Stoppages: Bellary, Guntakal (Tech), Secunderabad, Nagpur, Jhansi, New Delhi.

Type: Premium | Fare: Premium | Distance: 3242 | Halts: 6 | Time: 2d 8h 15m | Avg: 57 kph

Train Details and Review: The longest distance running Premium train and longest distance train to run from Bangalore. It is only the second regularly scheduled Premium train to start running. Adds another train from Bangalore to Hyderabad to Delhi and the third major express train to regularly run via the new Chitradurga line. Slow for a premium train because it runs 230 km extra spending around 4 hours more running through the roundabout ASK route through Karnataka instead of the direct line through Dharmavaram just for a stop at Bellary. Should hopefully get LHB coaches in the future. Does not stop at Bhopal at all. Timings are comfortable enough for pilgrims to visit the shrine and return in the same train.

New Express Trains Announced for South Western Railway

16575/16576 Bangalore City – Mangalore Central – Bangalore Daily Intercity Express (SWR)

  • 16575 will run from Bangalore City SBC to Mangalore Central MAQ via Mysore, Hassan Everyday during day time. Timetable: Departs SBC: 0830, MYA: 1000, MYS: 1205, KRNR: 1240, HAS: 1440, SKLR: 1550, SBHR: 1830, MAJN: 2045, arrives MAQ: 2115.

Composition: AC Chair Car, 2S Sitting, General Unreserved, SLRs

Route and Stoppages: Kengeri, Mandya, Mysore, Krishnarajanagara, Holenarsipur, Hassan, Sakleshpur, Subrahmanya Road, Kabakaputtur, Bantwala, Mangalore Jn.

Type: Express | Fare: Express | Distance: 441 km | Halts: 11 | Time: 12:45/13:00 | Speed: 34.6/33.8

Train Verdict: Running at a blinding avg speed of 34 kph, this joke is possibly the slowest BG “Express” train on Indian Railways. Why do they even bother to run trains like this, that too even in the day time when the actual requirement is a night train? If you leave Bangalore in your car along with this train, you can reach Mangalore, turn around and reach back to Bangalore before this crawler even reaches Mangalore! These are the reasons why Indian Railways is in the pits. They should just admit that it is the bus lobby who dictates terms on how things are to be run here.

16579/16580 Bangalore Yeshwantpur – Shimoga Town – Yeshwantpur Biweekly Express (SWR)

16587/16588 Bangalore Yeshwantpur – Bikaner – Yeshwantpur Biweekly Express (SWR)

  • 16587 express will run from Bangalore Yeshwantpur YPR on Sundays & Fridays to reach Bikaner BKN Rajasthan on Tuesdays and Sundays. Timetable: Departs YPR: 0500 (Sun, Fri), ASK: 0750, UBL: 1510, GDG: 1640, BGK: 1900, BJP: 2100, SUR: 2350, PUNE: 0505 (Mon, Sat), KYN: 0750, BSR: 0910, ST: 1220, BRC: 1420, ADI: 1630, PNU: 1922, ABR: 2027, RANI: 2201, MJ: 2310, JU: 0130 (Tue, Sun), MTD: 0348, arrives BKN: 0710 (Tue, Sun).
  • 16588 express will run from Bikaner BKN Rajasthan on Sundays and Tuesdays to reach Bangalore Yeshwantpur YPR on Wednesdays and Fridays.

Type: Express | Fare: Express | Distance: 2451 | Halts: 30 | Time: 02d02h10m/02d05h15m | Speed: 48/46

Review: Another one of those weekly crawlers taking two days to ‘run’ between South Indian cities and random towns in Rajasthan. Takes a whopping 10 hours to crawl from YPR to Hubli and an entire day (24 hours) between Bangalore and Pune (at 43 kph) which makes no sense at all since it does not have many stops. With all its general coaches it looks like it is mostly aimed at unreserved passengers (migrant labor) who don’t really care about things like speed and service. Why don’t they just run a couple or three daily superfasts between Bangalore and various cities in Rajasthan/Gujarat covering all those places they are running complicated weeklies to?

16229/16230 Mysore – Varanasi – Mysore Biweekly Express (SWR)

Will start running from December 25 2014

  • 16229 Varanasi Express will run from Mysore MYS to Varanasi BSB on all Tuesdays, Thursdays.

  • 16230 Mysore Express will run from Varanasi BSB to Mysore MYS on all Thursdays, Saturdays. Timetable: Departs BSB: 2105 (Th, Sa), COI: 0032 (F, Su), STA: 0320, JBP: 0610, ET: 1000, BSL: 1530, KPG: 1950, DD: 0050 (Sa, M), GR: 0730, GTL: 1210, BAY: 1417, ASK: 2050, SBC: 0015 (Su, Tu), arrives MYS: 0300 (Su, Tu).

Composition: 01 AC 2 tier, 01 AC 3 tier, 06 Sleeper Coaches, 06 General Unreserved, 02 SLRs (16 coaches)

Route and Stoppages: Mandya, Kengeri, Bangalore City, Yeshwantpur, Tumkur, Arsikere, Kadur, Bellary, Guntakal, Adoni, Mantralayam Road, Raichur, Krishna, Yadgir, Wadi, Gulbarga, Solapur, Daund, Ahmednagar, Kopargaon, Manmad, Bhusaval, Khandwa, Itarsi, Pipariya, Narsinghpur, Jabalpur, Katni, Maihar, Satna, Chheoki, Mirzapur.

Type: Express | Fare: Express | Distance: 2705 km | Halts: 32 | Time: 2d04h30m/2d05h55m | Speed: 51/50

Train Review: A much needed route, yes, but the route of this “Zigzag Express” seems to be designed to connect as many places en route as possible on the same schedule, making it useless for people from Mysore and Bangalore actually. It takes almost an entire day to travel within Karnataka itself, 6 hours between Mysore and Arsikere via Bangalore which can actually be covered in just 3 hours on the direct line via Hassan. The entire route is weirdly zigzag as it goes left-right-left-across the country taking the longest route possible. And the composition also marks run-off-the-mill. However, it is thankfully fast (relatively) for its route. It would’ve been better if it ran MYS-HAS-ASK-BAY on one day and MYS-SBC-DMM-GTL on the other.

17321/17322 Hubli – Mumbai LTT – Hubli Weekly Express (SWR)

  • 17321 runs from Hubli UBL to Mumbai Kurla Lokmanya Tilak Terminus LTT via Bijapur, Solapur, Pune, Panvel on all Saturdays from November 08 2014.
    Route, Stoppages and Timetable: Departs Hubli UBL: 2230 (Sat), Gadag GDG: 2340, Badami BDM: 0100 (Sun), Bagalkot BGK: 0125, Almatti LMT: 0210, Bijapur BJP: 0350, Solapur SUR: 0650, Daund DD: 1005, Pune PUNE: 1200, Panvel PNVL: 1525, Thane TNA: 1620, arrives Mumbai LTT: 1655 (Sun).
  • 17322 runs from Mumbai Lokmanya Tilak Terminus LTT to Hubli UBL via Panvel, Pune, Solapur, Bijapur on all Sundays from November 09 2014.
    Route, Stoppages and Timetable: Departs Mumbai LTT: 2115 (Sun), Thane TNA: 2140, Panvel PNVL: 2225, Pune PUNE: 0200 (Mon), Daund DD: 0328, Solapur SUR: 0845, Bijapur BJP: 1130, Almatti LMT: 1250, Bagalkot BGK: 1332, Badami BDM: 1357, Gadag GDG: 1550, arrives Hubli UBL: 1735 (Mon).

Composition: 01 AC 2 tier, 01 AC 3 tier, 06 Sleeper Coaches, 06 General Unreserved, 02 SLRs (16 coaches)

Type: Express | Fare: Express | Distance: 791 | Halts: 10 | Time: 18:25/20:20 | Speed: 42/38

Verdict: Another of SWR Hubli Division’s useless weeklies. Too slow (38 kph average!) and takes too long, 20 hours between Hubli and Mumbai whereas buses take hardly 10 hours. 17321 will be good for overnight travel from UBL to SUR while 17322 is completely useless. In fact, it is one of the slowest “express” trains on Indian Railways. Will be a super flop.

SCR has slowed down the Secunderabad Garib Rath drastically to make it a sureshot disaster

[ws_table id=”10″]

From January 21/22 the 12735 SC-YPR Garib Rath will take a whopping 16 hours to run between Hyderabad and Bangalore, arriving at 1140 which is useless for anyone. 12736 returns at 1430 to arrive SC at 0400, which is 14 hours and as useless and inconvenient for anyone! This train was very popular among techies and people for a fast overnight connection between the two IT cities which has not been ruined! Their excuse is that the Yeshwantpur-Bidar express being made daily occupies its slot and all that. But in the end, it shows that the railways is not really interested in improving services or minding passenger convenience but only in meeting its own bureaucratic ends. Oh and bit of pressure from powerful bus lobbies might have helped. Anyway, pathetic. Things will never change in this country.

Train Review: Takes too long and is too slow at 15 hours. Hubli – Mumbai Volvo buses take only 10 hours. 17318 is a disaster taking 17 hours. leaving Mumbai in the morning and reaching Hubli very early the next morning. Will be a flop unless timings are changed for 17318 and it is speeded up both ways. What a waste for a daily train which would otherwise have ran full! SWR UBL division trains all suffer from the same problem.

Train Review: Has to be speeded up both ways. Arrives at odd hours at intermediate stations in Karnataka which might take away the usefulness of this train. Timings also have to be changed ensuring early arrival and late departure at SC.
