After the Bus Rapid Transit System (BRTS) which has grabbed the attention of the people across the country for its unique features, the SWR too has joined the band of setting up a model railway station in Dharwad taluk.
The Railway Station constructed at Mugad which is located 10 km away from this 'City of Intellectuals', has got the credit of becoming India's first model railway station.
Buoyed with the achievement of the SWR staff, Union Railway Minister Piyush Goyal has not only thanked the staff for their dedicated effort, but has also
mentioned it in his Facebook account on Thursday that Mugad Railway Station is the first model railway station in the country.

In his Facebook account, the minister has uploaded a 55-second video of this railway station and also had uploaded a few pictures of the railway station.
He has mentioned that 'A Model to Replicate: Mugad station in Dharwad, Karnataka, has set a benchmark for other stations to follow, with 10 km of spick & span tracks that have been painted red & white, a charming garden, and the planting of Lily, Rose & Kakada flowers in and around the station.'
Unlike other railway stations which always comes under the scanner of the commuters for several reasons including lack of basic facilities, cleanliness, and others, this railway station has been attracting the people and is turning out to be sight-seeing place in an and around Dharwad.
The SWR staff have toiled hard to see that cleanliness and greenery is given utmost priority at this railway station. A passenger who comes to board train here hardly finds any waste strewn in the railway station.
Adding to this, a beautiful garden too has been set up in the railway station premises here giving an enchanting view of lush green plants and trees.
The work of the staff has not ended here. They have walked an extra mile to see that the 10km track is painted with red and white colour. These tracks are cleaned twice a day so that no foul smell or waste in dumped on it.
Pilot project
The SWR Hubballi division had taken up the project of making some of the railway stations under its jurisdiction as a model railway station. This decision comes following instructions from the Union Minister Piyush Goyal to raise the standards of the railway station in the country to facilitate the passengers have a pleasant journey.
Under this project, the SWR selected Mugad Railway station and with a dedicated staff of 25 persons, this railway station has been made a model railway station.
Now, the SWR is contemplating to develop the Dharwad Railway Station, and the Koppal Railway Station as model railway station before bringing other railway stations under the ambit of this project.
The staff here clean the platforms and also the tracks after passing of every train. Waste bins have been set up in the station and the passengers should not litter. The staff motivate to maintain cleanliness and also impart cleanliness lessons to the people.
Senior Section Engineer Shafi Kazi said that every day, the railway station is cleaned twice-in morning and in the evening. A beautiful garden has been set up here and over 12 varieties of flowering plants have been planted. To make the tracks look attractive, red and white paints have been applied to them. This apart, water purification unit too has been established here to help thousands of passengers coming here every day to board trains to Goa, he said.
South Western Railway General Manager Ajay Kumar Singh has given a cash award of Rs 5000 along with an appreciation certificate to Shafi Kazi, for this innovative work towards "Swach Rail". General Manager has advised that this should be replicated at other major stations on South Western Railway.

HUBBALLI: South Western Railway (SWR), Hubballi, reportedly used the engine of a passenger train to push a goods train after the latter’s engine failed at Mugad on Saturday midnight. The passenger train, Rani Chennamma Express (16590), was delayed by more than seven hours, leaving in the lurch 3,000 of its passengers who were to appear for a police exam.The train was scheduled to arrive in Bengaluru at 7am and the exam was at 10am. Following the midnight rescue act, the train reached Hubballi at 6am. Angry candidates protested at the Hubballi railway office on Sunday morning soon after the train rolled in. As the MLA dialled the CMO, chief minister HD Kumaraswamy promised a reexamination would be held for those who missed the test.Deepak Kasturi, a youth from Chikkodi who was to appear for the exam, told TOI: “Our train was stopped at Kambarganvi at 11.45pm. We thought there must be...
some crossing or a technical reason. After an hour, we realised our train had no engine.”The engine was then pushing a goods train towards Hubballi, 30km away. The engine returned to the passenger train around 3.20am. “Our train started from Kambarganvi by 3.30am,” Kasturi said.By then, more than 3,000 candidates, who were to appear for an exam for the post of constable in the District Armed Reserve Police force in Bengaluru, were a worried lot. “We reached Hubballi by 6am and realised that we can’t reach Bengaluru before 2pm, while our exams were scheduled at 10am. We demanded that SWR take responsibility and request the government to conduct a reexam,” Kasturi said.Sachin Khot, 27, a candidate from Athani, said he had joined coaching for the constable’s test six months ago and spent Rs 40,000 to appear for the exam. “Now, my future is at stake as this is the last year that I can attempt the test for constable. I will cross the age limit next year,” he said.‘No action against agitators’E Vijaya, deputy general manager of SWR said no action will be taken against the protesters for hampering train services. “They acted out of fear of missing the exam. So, we have decided not to file any case,” he said.Following the protest in Hubballi, railway officials collected details of the candidates to request the government to conduct a re-exam‘Protest delayed train’Divisional railway manager of Hubballi, SWR, Rajesh Mohan, said protests had delayed the train and had the examinees cooperated, the train would have made it to Bengaluru by 8.30am. “When the engine returned to Rani Chennamma Express by 1.08am, the candidates started an agitation, fearing they would miss the exam,” said Mohan. “They detained the train for three hours. They threw stones at the engine, endangering the lives of pilots, TTEs, guard and station staff. When we started the train by 3.55am, they kept pulling the alarm chain demanding postponement of the exam. It took one more hour to bring the train to Hubballi.”
