16561/16562 Another white elephant, another new train when there are already 3 trains between SBC/YPR and TVC/KCVL. They could very well have started this train on a friday/Saturday where there are less number of trains and demand for tickets are more

IMO, the timings of 22625/22626 is also not very good, running in both the direction with a time gap of just 30 minutes with Brindavan.

At last trains are running through CBE and we also getting some trains for CBE. For the first time, a train has been extended from PKD to CBE (Manglaore Intercity Express), Because usually CBE trains will go into kerela and nothing will come back.
Alleeppy is diverted by CBE but at a cost of losing 15 minutes to my favorite "Blue Mountain". But its ok. We have to lose something to get something eilla...Soon have to divert manglaore trains via CBE..
Thanks and a well done to COIMBATORE RAILWAY STRUGGLE COMMITTEE..
