Mangaluru: The maiden journey of the newly introduced night train between Mangaluru and Bengaluru will begin from the city on February 21. A long standing demand of the people from Karavali has finally been fulfilled with the introduction of the train. The train will run as per its scheduled time table with effect from February 22.

The train’s maiden journey will be flagged off by MP Nalin Kumar Kateel at 11 am on February 21st.

Initially the train  will be operating for three days in a week. Eventually, it is expected to run daily from March onwards. The finalized time table for the new train had been submitted to the south western railways for approval on Jan 24th and it has been approved.

The distance of 364 kms between Mangalruru to Bengaluru will be covered in 9.5 hours while the journey on the opposite direction will take about 11.5 hours. The delay in time for the train journey from Bengaluru towards the city is because of the safety measures taken along the Ghat section and due to the crossing by other trains.

The train will commence its journey from Mangaluru at 7 pm on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and reach Bengaluru at 4.30 am. For the return journey from Bengaluru, the train will leave at 4.30 pm on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays and reach the city at 4 pm.

Presently there are two trains journeying towards Bengaluru from the city. Of the two trains, the Yashwanthpur Express train runs via Mysuru for three days and  via Shravanabelagola for four days of the week while, the Gomateshwara Express train leaves Mangaluru Junction station at 11.30 am every day  except Sundays, reaches Bengaluru at 8.30 am via Shravanabelagola.
