This is one of the worst train to travel to MAQ.. Look at the slack provided from TUP... TUP-CBE is like 1 hr 40 mins.. A local bus takes lesser time.. and here is the beauty CBE-PTJ a whooping 55 mins by a brisk walk we can cover this 6kms much more easily.. Boy why should we really have a train named express with 1A in it which runs slower than a passenger.. For eg.. this is the slowest train between TUP & PGT.. takes almost 4 hrs whereas TPJ-PGT pass taken only 3 hours. Gosh.....

Yep Nazeer ji i was on this train once from TUP to PGT after visiting my brother there.. dint even seeing the timing of this train i decided to take a journey on this one.. left TUP like 20 mins late.. I never though palakkad will come after 4 hours.. it arrived PTJ like around 11.05 AM and as u said left at 11.40. Stopped again at walayar at 12.05 till 12.20 and reached PGT by 12.40.. 15 mins ahead LOL

    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.
