vaigai express must get lhb rakes once fedl is complete like sampoorna kranti express to get back its original speed again and no need of rsa. vaigai the legend with lhb rakes is a prestige to southern railways.

I was thinking about the future of this train. It should get coaches like that of Karnavati Express.
Also, plans are there for a Double Decker Train between MS & MDU. Hope they start it completely.

SR don't have 2S coaches. Once SR gets 2S coaches, i guess, Vaigai might be the first in queue. But chances are there kovai might get before Vaigai, considering the fact that Kovai needs just one rake.

Once FEDL is completed , the rsa with pallavan can be removed and vaigai can be done with a single LHB rake. It is more comfortable to day time travellers with our white beast WAP7 pulling it very smoothly and fastly.

A birthday party for Vaigai Express.
A write up in the Times Of India talking about our own Mahesh Sundaram & Arun Pandian who travelled all the way from Chennai to Madurai Rail way Junction last Saturday on board the Vaigai Express, just to celebrate the 38th anniversary of the train. Great work and kudos to you !!
''M Arun Pandian and Mahesh Sundaram, both software professionals, brought a special cake with a picture of Vaigai Express, along with porcelain mugs printed with photographs of the train and explaining its evolution since
They cut the cake on the station premises along with railway staff. They presented one mug each to the loco pilot and assistant loco pilot of the train as mementos.
“We have never seen a function like this being held to celebrate the birthday of a train,“ commented a railway official.'
