A deserted 82856 QLN - VSKP Suvidha Special departing QLN @ 0640, delayed by 55 minutes. Train led by BZA/WAG 7 & has worn out coaches from East Coast Railway. For the fare charged for Suvidha special during Sabarimala season, it deserved better coaches!
Standing on the right is 66300 QLN - KTYM - ERS MEMU. (Poor quality of photo regretted).

Hardly a handful of passengers all the SL/GS coaches put together when the train left QLN. Also you don't get ticket from across the counter to board Suvidha Special. Sabarimala pilgrims board the train from Chengannur/Kottayam only.
But had seen this train few days back @ ERN; it was not full. Pilgrim season has not peaked. So subsequent trips will be sold out, I guess.

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...

    The modification to the TL Update scheme - i.e. the introduction of the new RAC System - has led to some efficiency with TL Updates. More TLs are being discussed, and quickly moved up. However, we still have on Average, about 300 Waitlisted TLs in the backlog at any time, and our hard-working and diligent TLMs...
