Mysore, Jun 7: Rail services on the newly laid broad guage track between Mysore and Nanjangud will be flagged off on June nine at the Mysore railway station.
According to Southern Railway officials here, Minister of State for Railway R Velu would flag off the new passenger train. The flagging off of the inaugural train would mark the resumption of the train services in this route, 17 months after the work on guage convertion began in January 2007.
The officials were working out the time table for trains plying between the two destinations.
The guage convertion between Nanjangud-Chamarajanagara was nearing completion. The entire signal line system had been completely changed with the installation of the modern multiple colour system in place of mechanical semaphore type signals.
Railway authorities were planning to extend a few long distance trains between Mysore and Bangalore to Nanjangud in the near future.
