Now a railway terminal has opened in the country which looks like an airport. The ultra-luxury Sir M Visvesvaraya Railway Terminal in Bangalore started operating on June 6 with the Ernakulam Tri-Weekly Express passing through the station. It was a happy moment for the first staff and passengers to use the city’s third largest terminal. The station is located in the city between Banaswari and Bippanahli. Although a formal inauguration is yet to take place, operations have begun since June 6. The same train will also leave for Ernakulam on Tuesday and Thursday.
