New Belagavi Mysuru Jn Train Brief History
The announcement of this train is a result of extensive demand for an exclusive train from Belagavi to Mysuru. The demand for a train to Mysuru started with asking for an extension of the Dharwad Mysuru Express till Belagavi in 2019. However, due to strong opposition from the people of Dharwad and the stepmotherly treatment with Belagavi, along with fierce political lobbying and pressure, the extension of the train was not possible.
Late Shri Suresh Angadi (MoSR) and MP of Mysuru Shri Pratap Simha also tried for a train between Belagavi and Mysuru. However, due to many hurdles, the said extension was not approved. Instead, Belagavi got the slow-running Vishwamanav Express between the two cities.
But now, with the coaching depot ready at the New Belagavi Railway station, Indian Railways, and South Western Railways have decided to run an Unreserved Special between Belagavi and Dharwad, later connecting to Mysuru. This move has been welcomed by many.
