Chief minister Raghubar Das on Thursday flagged off the Hatia-Ernakulam Weekly Express (22837) at 5.05pm from Hatia station, a pre-Diwali boon for south-bound passengers, especially those going to Vellore for medical assistance.
After Thursday's inaugural run, the fully air-conditioned train will leave Hatia every Monday at 6.15pm and reach Ernakulam at 10.55am on Wednesday, travelling 2,248km in 40 hours 40 minutes with 22 halts and 344 intermediate stations.
Among them, Katpadi junction, which is nearest to CMC Vellore, is possibly the biggest attraction of the train.
