Looks like this train is taking every possible route. End to end passengers will have a bit of a trouble but on the other hand, the train thirsty city of Tuticorin will be connected to new places between Virudhunagar - Trichy, Villupuram - Katpadi - Daund. Well, on thoughts between Passenger effort and the connectivity, the need of connectivity has taken an upper hand. Get a green flag. Thanks for the effort.

Thanks a lot for the train. Would be glad to share a couple of suggestions.
1. Since this train is via NMKL it doesnt need to have a loco change/reversal at ED. Thus the same KJM or BGKT WDP4B/WDP4 can travel al the way to Tuticorin. This will eradicate the Loco change job in YPR.
2. Tuticorin has its daily connection to SA - DPJ - HSRA section via TN - MYS - TN express. It would be of a great help if this train is via SA - BWT - KJM-
YPR as similar to the TN - OKHA weekly.
Please let know of the possibilities in this scope.

If this is going to be a 24 coacher then maintenance has to be in Delhi as 23 is the max Tuticorin pitline + sick line can handle. If the arrival at MS by 5:30 is an issue then it has to be slowed down to come at 06:05 hrs arrival in the weeklies/Biweekly slot. Better to speed it up to come as the first train to MS else 06:10 is the only nearest time which is being used by the TEN Premium special.
Further opinions guess would be interesting.

धन्य हुए भाग्य हमारे,
जो हम आपके सामने पधारे।।
This was the feeling which incurred to me when I came face to face with the Great Crawler, 13132 KOAA-ANVT Express, jokingly called as The Bullet or Crawler Rajdhani by me. For the first time, I got a chance to board the train, albeit for just 2 minutes.
scene was that I persuaded my friend to travel in it as he wasn't getting confirmed reservation in any of the trains on 27th August due to heavy rush on the occasion of Rakshabandhan. Actually, he had a RAC ticket in Magadh Express on 28th August but he wanted to go on 27th itself. When he couldn't find any way out, he came to me for help, knowing that I was a railfan and had more knowledge than him in this regard. And then I hatched a plan & started describing about KOAA-ANVT Express, how one of my friend easily got reservation in it & that this was his only ray of hope. Reluctantly he agreed, despite strongly thinking that he was being tricked into a huge conspiracy. I somehow held my laughter and after repeated rounds of persuation, he finally agreed to travel by it and booked a Waitlisted sleeper ticket thereafter. Unfortunately, his ticket got stuck in RAC after charting. I told him to talk to the TTE and ask for a confirm berth in 3A. He did get it later, after paying 400 rupees to the TTE.
That day when I went to see him off, I was shocked to find that the train was almost full. I honestly had never expected this. 13132 was as usual, rescheduled that day as well and departed at 7pm. My friend cheerfully waved me good bye, unaware of the consequences ahead. It took him 19:32 hours to cover around 630km, he reached Allahabad at 14:32. Avg speed of the trip comes out to be 32.20kmph. That's the Bullet for you. _/\_ _/\_

No sir nothing like that happened. Instead he enjoyed the journey - watching many movies on his laptop, sleeping, etc though his family members were very annoyed. His father asked if he was coming by a bullock cart and that he wouldn't allow him to travel by trains in the future. :P :P

As a suggestion extend this train either to Tuticorin or to Rameshwaram from Madurai to assist these two places to get connected to all the eastern part of India especially to Howrah and Guwahati

Satpura Railways.
After 2 years of planning finally I got the chance to travel on satpura railways. I needed one partner with me and I got my 11 year old son Aman ready for this magnificent narrow gauge journey.
After 2/3 plans I shortlisted to travel via Nagpur chhindwara Nainpur jabalpur and to Ahmednagar via Itarsi, but Itarsi fire forced me to change the plan as Jabalpur Nainpur Balaghat Gondia Nagpur Ahmednagar.
All the booking was done and set for the much awaited journey. At last moment my 9 year old daughter also joined us, initially she was reluctant for the journey.
3 rd july
my father also wanted to go Varanasi his hometown but was not getting direct ticket so he decided to go via Durg. He joined us on same train with lower berth quota confirm ticket.
on journey day we all were ready to board 12850 Pune bilaspur express and left home at 2035 hours since station is 3 minutes drive from my home at Ahmednagar.
At station Jhelum arrived with delay, by the time I brought a General class ticket for my daughter who was last minute inclusion to my dream journey. 12850 arrived with delay of 20 minutes, we all boarded our coach S8 which was newly made with charging point in each bay.
I slept around 2200 hours, so night was good and uneventful. I woke up in the morning when train arrived at Bandera, here I got fresh. Here 12101 was overtaken by 12850. Again I decided to sleep. when I woke my train was entering Ajni. Here we had 2 minutes halt. Train reached Nagpur platform 2 10 minutes ahead of schedule. we three got down, my dad continued his journey to Durg and onward to Varanasi by Sarnath express.
Again I had confirm ticket in 58839 for me and my son, I went to uts window for my daughter ticket and ask clerk for a ticket to Nainpur but she gave me ticket to Raipur, which I cancel loosing 15 rs as charges and told her I want ticket to Nainpur on NG train. This time she got it right. The child ticket for 290 kilometres cost me just 30 rs, cheapest ever.
to be continued.....

His daughter was most of the time running to the door to catch hold her Papa as he gets down from the train and walks around in the halting stations. Such a wonderful set of Railfans they are. God bless.

Re# 1517286-18            Tags   Past Edits
First u understand few points
1. TN never had two ONT to Chennai. after janatha they given PC so PC can be taken as janatha restoration
2. MS TCN is given to connect TCN with MS. which is entirely new train. and it is not snatched any train's TT
3. TCN TPTY i indended to give as to connect TRT and TCN which is
nowhere in TN MS connection.
4. VM CGL will be doubled this year. so no problem even TN MS second ONT is near this slot. they can run it back to back. and TN MS route is not finalized till now..
5. TN got slips of MS GUV which i may term as u snatched kudal express. but this is never ever can be called as snatch and it is no where related to MDU TPTY TT which have BG version meenakshi express.
6. TCN is in TN district so i call it as TN district train. like mannai is TVR district train kamban is PDY train. and there is no necessity that a train it has to go via is dt capital or state capital .
7. if TN needs TPTY connection u can very well demand TN TPTY i am not all against. adding slip to all trains i cant agree.
8. if u still say u want slip i can prove PLNI deserves slip on this connection than TN.
9. TN got okha connection which is not in MG. so compare and see. i never used slot of any MG train.. trains are speeded up and we r getting more and more slots.

Where did you copy the first two points? Once more word as PC is Janatha restoration I will land up in a rage.
What stops that Tuticorin cant have the Janatha. Why Chendur is running as in the same time formats of MG Janatha.
FYKI, We never snatched GUV slips rather the lazy MDU division had no brains to give us a new train.
points from 6 onward more red flags will be tagged. :)

PC is given as substitute only like RF Slip given to KMU once uzhavan given they took it back. so what u want to do ? divert chendoor to CL and PC to ML. ok do that . No objection from my side.
TN can have second ONT . i never disagree. Chendoor slot present varies alot from janatha. since CL congested at times of introduction they gave it via ML and Chendoor might speed up once few more portions doubled..
u could have objected for slip and sent it to RMM or
CAPE or SCT via ASD (who dont have train to chennai at present). so stop giving silly reasons like this.
i never care about flags. i am doing my justice to my dream TT

Your justifications are very biased and hardly have any reasoning in it as the way you have your uncared mind swings. There is no use talking to a bland closed view mind of yours. Do reconsider your prancing horses of your dreams.

Dear Railfan, there are few modifications to be done to both the TEN and to TN part.
1. Please add MEJ for the attach and detach notification of the train
2. Take a stance to move link part to arrive at MEJ first that means either the TEN or TN part to start early. Both the parts most probably cant start at the same time and arrive at the same time at MEJ. As per my knowledge, the link part must arrive at the attaching junction atleast 10- 20 mins earlier. Please
correct me if I am wrong
3. Move the departure time of both the parts to 15:00 - 15:30 hrs.
4. I don't find any much validity of the train to be a tri-weekly and stopping at MV. Let it be a daily and go to MS.
5. Yes TN and TEN have been demanding another overnight train and let this be a good pavement for it and it can be on an inverse timing of Chendur in both the directions
6. This will also serve us on a good connection to Delta regions which we lack both from TN TEN and NCJ.
7. If your mindset is to have a intercity kind of train then please these are not the destinations.
If at all some of the suggestions be taken to consideration, it will be helpful for us to flag the train
