Saw an android app, you can provide your PNR and mobile number. You would be getting free SMS till the ticket gets confirmed or cancelled.

As this is now a fully electrified route (including MTP-CBE), two stops can be introduced at Karamadai and Periyanaickenpalayam. It will be very useful and will not incur much wastage of time. Just 1 minute halt will be sufficient. Platforms are not long enough but passengers are ready to manage.

According to me there is no requirement of stoppage at Periyanaickenpalayam as this stop falls withing the Coimbatore City itself, Karamadai can be ok, but I think it is also not necessary as of now, because this Niligiri is only the first train which leaves towards Chennai at night, and this train stops at Coimbatore for at least 20 minutes, so to be on time Extra Stops are not necessary. The other way could be adding the more passenger trains, MEMU towards Coimbatore.

Re# 1712132-3            Tags   Past Edits
Karamadai can be considered. One more main requirement for us is to accommodate all 24 coaches of blue at MTP. MTP pitlines and the station has to revamped so that it can be an additional terminal for CBE. Next is construction of the old BG line like a byepass to PTJ ( which was existent few decades back) so that Blue can continue from CBE to IGU without Loco reversal. This can help MTP a lot and it can be a secondary terminal for CBE side as CBE is saturated

MTP station should be surely upgraded.
Karamadai stop will be very much appreciated and won't cause much delay.
Reversal delay not a problem as most of the passengers board at CBE Main only. Attaching extra coaches takes more time.

One trip of this can be extended to Coimbatore with GNWL for Chennai. It will be a great help for passengers from Coimbatore to Howrah. It is difficult to get tickets from Coimbatore to Howrah in trains originating from Kerala and Mangalore.

This junction may need more platforms. After Gondia-Jabalpur BG is completed some long distance trains will take this shorter route between Balharshah & Jabalpur and save 250 km. Fortunately no loco reversal will be needed.

Becoz of that only the platforms are increased to 7, and I think 7 is quite decent in no., heavier junctions like ET, JHS are managing decently with 7 pf's, however no. of platforms can be enhanced once the traffic will increase.

Now this is converted into imaginary futuristic SF after completion of Gondia-Jabalpur BG.
It will take only 29 hours. Pilgrims can reach early morning, book their luggage / rooms and go for Triveni Snan in the morning itself.
