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.

return,
12082:TVC-CLT/CAN Jan Shatabdi Express :
Thiruvananthapuram Central:Dep:14.20 hrs, Kollam Jn:15.15/15.18, Kayankulam Jn:15.48/15.50, Chengannur :16.14/16.15, Kottayam:16.47/16.50, Ernakulam Town:18.10/18.15, Trichur:19.28/19.30, Shoranur Jn:20.10/20.15, Tirur:20.59/21.00, Kozhikkode:21.55/22.00, Tellicherry:23.04/23.05, Kannur:Arr:23.35 hrs.
This train will run in opposite direction 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.

@guest: Re# 226284-71
Kannur has only 3 main platforms and the 4th one is on the side of the platform #1 which is a small one used for passenger trains and has no extension towards North, that is it has a dead end. Usually during night time Kannur Coimbatore passenger occupys that space. THe main platform 1 which you mentioned as 600 metres is used by trains comming from South going towards North (Konkan side) exclusively and i dont understands the funda of shraring the platform by trains and is 600 meters platform enough for 2 trains? looks strange. The second plaftorm is occupied by Kannur Mangalore Passenger on the northern side and the southern side is occupied by Executive express.

The Thrid platform is exclusively used by trains comming from North (konkan side ) going towards south (trivandrum ) side. The other extra tracks are always occupied by multiple goods trains carrying diesel and petrol , kannur has IOB, BP and HP Depot where filling and refilling is doen from wagon. So where will you accomodate thsi train if extended to kannur and how will you do maintenance of the train for next days journey?...So dear friend wait for a looooooooong period of time untill PIT line and 4th and 5th platforms are ready till then be satidsfied with whatever you have now.

    There have been several reports that IRI cannot be accessed from a few large mobile data providers like Vodafone, whereas the site works fine when accessed through others. The matter was investigated, and the findings are that the connections are just not reaching the IRI servers. This may be because of...
