Mangalore, December 15: The Yeshwanthpur-Mangalore train was quickly transformed into the Yeshwanthpur-Kannur train and moved toward Kannur in Kerala. The transformation took place on Dec 14, when the Yeshwanthpura-Mangalore Express (6517) reached Platform No. 1 at 8:30 a.m.

The train was quickly cleaned; and Mr Deepak Krishna, the general manager of the Southern Railways of India, along with other officials got into the train, which departed to Kannur, Kerala.

The train will now be known as Kannur-Yeshwanthpura Express 6515. Mr. E. Ahmed, the Union Minister of state for railways, flagged off the new train later that evening.

Keral now has two Yeshwanthpur-Kannur trains. One of these trains follows the Salem-Krishnagiri-Krishnarajapuram route and the second, the one that was shifted from Mangalore, will take the Payannur-Kanhangad-Nileshwar-Kasargod-Mangalore-Sakleshpur route.

The Mangalore Railway Horata Samithi and all other railway organizations of Mangalore have strangely fallen silent. Some of them have gone to Delhi to persuade the authorities concerned to extend the first Kannur-Yeshwanthpur Express to Mangalore. The Horata Samithi wants this train to be made into a daily and its services extended to Mangalore.

The train will start from Kannur at 4:40 p.m., reach Mangalore Central at 7:15 p.m., and leave at 7:45 p.m. The train will reach Mangalore Central from Bangalore at 8:40 a.m. and leave for Kannur at 9:10 a.m. to reach Kannur at 11:45 a.m.
