On 17 june 2016 , when we were travelling from MAS - SBC in Double Decker , a fish plate had got struck in brake oil tank just after the train departed from JTJ and started on its high gradient . After crossing TN border only the guard noticed and the LP stopped the train. However it was not even between any major station. From then on it took 2.5 hours to remove the fishplate and for an alternate engine to come from BWT

Munnar would be an interesting option. The route can go as follows.
From Bodinayakanur in Tamilnadu ( branch line from Madurai), via Munthal-Kottagudi ( along the Kottagudi river ) to 'Top station' at the Kerala-TamilNadu border and further on along the Mattupetty dam reservoir to Munnar. The route can be a meter gauge like the NMR route.
This will be a special route too. About a century ago, the Kundala valley railway used to connect Munnar to Top station with a narrow gauge railway.
This was used for transporting Tea to the rest of the country. The tea would be transported from Munnar to Top station by railway. From there, a ropeway and cable car used to take the tea down the hills and by road to Bodinayakanur. The line was washed out in a flood in 1924 and never reconstructed.
The route can be re-started in pretty much with the same alignment as earlier and it will be really good to see a historic route being restarted.

The toilets of 2nd sitting coaches of 16127/16128 are not maintained properly. Whereas the toilets of 16129/30 are good and even the toilets of sleeper coaches and AC coaches of 16127/28 are good

Of course the distance between chennai and hosur via road is around 320 kms and rail distance is almost 80 - 90 KMS more . Buses take approx 7 - 8 hours depending upon the type of the bus. Here passengers will be able to take a more comfortable ride rather than in an equally prized bus. In fact around 15 mins can be saved during the journey .
Please give your flags

Do u think that government's decision to stop ICF rake production completely by 2017 feasible considering the financial crisis of IR??They have stated that IR would shift to LHB coaches by 2017

Re# 2075172-1            Tags   Past Edits
ICF can consider producing LHB rakes from 2018 . They should not stop producing conventional rakes although they can reduce the amount of such rakes produced . Considering the crisis that IR faces , they cannot LHBfy all the trains within 2 years . So conventional coaches are required for atleast 10 more years

Re# 2075172-2            Tags   Past Edits
Yeah..in that case ICF has to expand its plant for production of LHB rakes,The current plant can only produce very few LHB rakes and may eventually lose competition..So its high time that ICF starts concentrating on LHB rakes and as you said it will take a lot of time to replace the current system..Feasibility is highly questionable still
