    There was some persistent glitch, requiring us to stop and restart all the servers. This led to a 30 minute outage. Really sorry about that. Thanks for everyone's patience.

    There have been some reports that the IRI Atlas is not visible. This seems to be some problem at the Google Maps end. To resolve this, please log out and log back in, and everything should start working. Thanks.

Extend 12081/12082 : Kozhikkode Thiruvananthapuram Janshatabdi Express via Kottayam upto Kannur :
Extend Kozhikkode Thiruvananthapuram Janshatabdi Express (Train#12081/12082) upto Kannur. The proposed timing can be as follows:
12081:CAN/CLT-TVC Jan Shatabdi Express :
Kannur Dep:4.30AM, Tellicherry:4.59/4.50, Kozhikkode:5.55/6.00, Tirur:6.39/6.40, Shoranur Jn:7.35/7.40, Trichur:8.08/8.10, Ernakulam Town:9.25/9.30, Kottayam:10.23/10.25, Chengannur: 10.59/11.00, Kayankulam Jn:11.19/11.20, Kollam Jn:11.58/12.00, Thiruvananthapuram Central:Arr:13.05 hrs.

of train#12076(TVC-CLT Jandhatabdi Exp), with the same time between Calicut&Trivandrum. Also, this timing will be useful for passengers from Kannur, Calicut, Shoranur, Trichur, etc for reaching Ernakulam before morning 9.30 hrs, which is the most useful timing for official/business purpose. Also, this train will be running before/after the morning/evening CAN-ERS-ALLP-CAN Executive Express. Also, this train will serve as the fastest train between Kannur and Trivandrum. As the proposed timing will not harm the railway's daily maintenance and repair, it is easy for extending this train upto Kannur. For easy extention, Train#56600(Calicut-Shoranur Jn Passenger) can be re-arranged to reach Shoranur Jn, before 7.30AM, by leaving Calicut at 5.15AM. So, passengers from the smaller stations between Calicut&Shoranur Jn can travel by the this passenger train and get Janshatabdi Express at Shoranur Jn.
Moreover, As a new pit line will be constructed soon in Kannur station, with east side entrance, the maintenance, repair and the handling of trains will not be a problem for railway. So, the train can be run 7 days a week, instead of 5 days a week and maintenance can be done at Kannur and Trivandrum.
As it will be the fastest train, reaching at the busiest time, it will reduce the rush in other day express, like Parasuram exp, Executive exp, etc. From Trivandrm, this train will serve as the most convenient day express to Malabar.
Railway has more facilities at Kannur station than Calicut, especially for cleaning, maintenance and pit line(under construction). So, Railway will only benefit from extending this train upto Kannur.

After electrification mangalore will turn into hub will have loco change of every train bound to kerala so that why they are building doubling to suratkal so that they can manage the rush. if u think they will increase the speed of train i don't think so,, if have they have to do that they would done it before, the reason behind they are not increasing the speed of train because they want all the train to have lot of slack time as the vallarpadam container trains rush will begin from this route, expect more rush in nearer future in this line and railways know this line is GOLDEN GOOSE in which they can earn more money from freight instead of passengers, so development can been seen soon.

They can definitely increase the speed of trains because most of the trains are running in old time table when this section was single line ! Also I don't think SR has any interest presently to electrify this section soon because not even a single OHE pole is put up on the line. Karakkad Shoranur line which is just 4 kms is single from the last 5 years. There are two lines there but only one is being operated. Why is the pace so slow? If it was somewhere in south kerala or near Chennai, it would have been electrified long back. Yes, they earn more money from freight but there is a lot of time still available for introducing SF trains. I don't know how to file a RTI application, otherwise I wanted to know why things are going so slow.
