22640 is a high priority train in SA-MAS section as it has to undergo PM at MAS and leave as 12695. Cheran anyway seems to have arrived BT at MAS so no impact as such. These sort of overtakes are not uncommon in JTJ-MAS section.

It happens at many times. Cheran will be overtaken by ALLP if its late as it needs to go pitline to occupy its slot.

Heard 22627/68 TPJ - TEN Intercity SF Express is going to get extended to TVC shortly, in RSA with 16341/42 GUV - TVC - GUV Intercity Express. So daytime connectivity from GUV to TPJ and back is in the offing.
In the bargain, CD/TVC smartly hands over PM of one more rake to CD/TPJ!!

Just for a suggestion, Start at 11.00 AM form MAO (Because after 7.40 there is no trains in MAQ direction till 13.00 except 9 AM weekly exp and 12.40 Raj) and reaches at RMM 6.30 AM. Let it run ahead of 12686 MAQ-MAS EXp from Mangalore onward. So it will be a good ONT connect between Mangalore and Rameshwaram. MAO:11.00 , MAJN:15.45, CAN:17.30, CLT :19.05, SRR: 21.10, RMM 6.30 AM. Since the train is a daily train and have sleeper coaches let the traveler make the full benefit. And keep all your stoppages as it is..

There is no direct buses from Shoranur Bus stand to Guruvayur since Kulappuly is the Bus stand for Guruvayoor busses. Batter to take a Auto from station and go to Kulappully which is 4 kms from shornur stn. You will get enough of buses from there to Guruvayoor. Or Getdown at pattambi railway station (If possible as per your trains - Pattambi is in SRR-CLT line) and you will get lots of buses from Pattambi station itself.

If you want to travel till pollachi from chennai (or any stn before dindigul) in this train take the general ticket from dindigul for the post palani travel. Otherwise you will not get the time at any of the station for purchasing pollachi ticket. And in pollachi expecially officials are checking for the ticket less travel.

Is it possible to get an unreserved ticket for travel between Palani and Udumalaipettai / Pollachi at Chennai itself, so we can avoid having to book at DG?

Re# 1910567-15            Tags   Past Edits
This "p" stands for pass through station for a particular train. These stations play a very crucial role while setting up the correct route map for the trains.
For example, a train has to go from a station A to station B. Assume that, there are 3 routes available for the train from A to B,
via (1) station C, (2) station
D and (3) station E. Now if the train runs from A to B without any stoppage, then it gets problematic to plot the route without taking help of the pass through stations. Because the route map software here can arbitrarily choose any of the 3 routes here, if there is no stoppage in between.
Now, if the correct route of the train is via station D, then by adding a pass through station D in between A and B will solve the whole issue.
The timing at the pass through station need not have to be exactly correct. In most cases, a rough estimate is done by looking at the speed of the train in that stretch. For example, the timing at station D will be lying in between those at A and B, and it will depend upon where exactly station D is located.

If you check TT for 12223 showing QLD -Koyilandy - 15.10 (p) , CMC- Chemancheri 15.14 (w/o "p") and again ETR - Elattur 15.20 (p) its just a three station with 13Kms and don't have any further more routes at all. They why only "p" for the first one and the third one ?

I had already told you about the main purpose of the pass through stations.
Therefore, I personally feel, there was no need to add 3 pass through stations here, because the route from Shoranur to Ernakulam is straight forward. Some member has manually added them. In this case the route as well as the whole TT will NOT have much effect if all 3 of them are removed as pass through.
