#rm not bothered about south
A single permanent train has not started running till date in palakkad pollachi section. According to rm trains will run on an experimental basis and if its giving good result then it will be regularized. People wanted trains not bg or mg. Wen lines r closed fr gc its fr gvng adequate trains after gc not gvng experimental ones. To show demand the lines should have been completed far back. Though the pothanur pollachi gauge conversion works are progressing it is at less than a snails pace. Madurai bodinayakkanur has come to a status equivalent to the pamban dhanushkodi line which was washed away by the tsunami long ago so as karaikkudi tiruvarur line. Now
even if trains come it will take a long time for people to remember them. In virudunagar manamadurai strech theres a demu and a good for nothing weekly. How are people expected to remember it? Trains have little more lessening in the number of minutes they arrive before time though doubling is almost over .
Premium trains and dyanamic fare system have boosted air travel! Wow! Jansardhan is yet another comedy! A new ticketless train! For wifi cctv cameras and for fining people there are enough and more people. But for giving a train noone is to be seen.
As far as i know till date below mumbai till kaniyakumari it's india and not any other country. God knows why the rm doesn't even have a look here!
Y each zone is nt gvn its deserved share
Wth is happening here?

Bro I understood the frustration.It's open fact that rail connectivity in North is far better than in South.Almost all RM are from North side and they will be like first-our state,second-the states where our political party exists,3-north India,4-Banglore with north India,5-Rest of South.Here it's taking more than 35 hours for me to travel from VSKP to Delhi.Though there is scope for speedy connection here,RM is busy with Talgo and Gatimaan which is a publicity stunt.Now after flexifare system common people could not travel in Rajdhani,Shatabdi and Duronto itself.

MADURAI: If the country can swap land on the border with its neighbour Bangladesh, can’t two railway divisions do the same? With allegations of partiality continuing unabated for over three decades, rail users of Tirunelveli and Kanniyakumari in Tamil Nadu, and Kollam in Kerala are campaigning to merge these districts to the railway division within their respective states.
Trouble began in 1979 when Thiruvananthapuram division was carved out of Madurai division. At that time, the railway infrastructure in Tirunelveli and Kanniyakumari in Tamil Nadu were added to the new division, while that in Kollam remained with Madurai. Under this bifurcation, Tirunelveli-Nagercoil-Kanniyakumari (90 km ) and Nagercoil-Kuzhithurai railway lines (33 km) came under Thiruvananthapuram division, thus starting the allegations of step-motherly treatment.
rail users in south Tamil Nadu accuse Thiruvananthapuram division of operating majority of trains via Kerala, neglecting south Tamil Nadu districts, citing the example of few express trains that originate from Tamil Nadu but traverse through Kerala instead of going through this State.
Island Express from Kanniyakumari to Bangaluru, a direct train that was introduced after a long-standing demand, is one such instance. “Instead of operating the trains via Madurai, the train is being operated via Thiruvananthapuram and Palakkad. For us in the south, it means travelling an additional 200 km and spending extra money to reach Bengaluru, just because the train was introduced by the Thiruvananthapuram division,” charges Kanniyakumari District Rail Users Association secretary P Edward Jeni.
The case is same with Tirunelveli-Bilaspur Express, Kanyakumari-Dibrugarh Express and Nagercoil-Shalimar Express, all of which operate via Thiruvananthapuram-Eranakulam-Coimbatore instead of the shorter route via Madurai and Erode.
“Whenever we sought new trains to Nagercoil, we were told there was no additional platforms and new lines. This is because the six trains operated for Kerala’s benefit occupy the platforms and tracks in Nagercoil station, where the infrastructure has not been upgraded in the past 30 years,” Jeni adds.
Congress MLA from Colachel, J G Prince, said most of the people from these districts had to travel to Madurai and Chennai for higher education, medical treatment and business. “Only Madurai division can serve this region better,” he says.
This anger has brought in bad-blood as well. Former principal of Scott Christian College and Chairman of Kanyakumari Institute of Development Studies, D Peter, said matters like this created a sense of mistrust in the minds of the people here. “They feel hurt when they are neglected and only the interest of the people of Kerala is being served,” he said. The politicians from here have failed in understanding the sentiments of the people, Peter alleged.
The annoyance is mutual. Nazar Khan Meera Sahib Asan, a member of Madurai Division Rail Users Consultative Committee from Kollam sub-division, said the Tamil engineering officials from Madurai Division had no knowledge of the geography and topography of Kerala. “When we demand new trains or extension of trains, the officials in Madurai division behave like Tamil Nadu government officials,” Asan alleges.
The Madurai Division neglected Kollam, he adds, pointing out the case of the demand from Kollam MP N K Premachandran to develop eco-tourism at Tenmalai, Ottakkal, Aryankavu and Edapalayam stations. “There has been no sign of it so far,” said Asan, who has come to become a staunch support of merger, just like Jeni, but here with the Thiruvananthapuram Division.
The suggestions have got traction as the gauge conversion work between Sengottai and Punalur is likely to be completed by the year-end. This 88-km railway line is a crucial section, which once was a high revenue generating route since its commissioning in 1904. However, the gauge conversion work has already taken over a decade - apparently because the section is situated in two states. This has prompted a rethink among even a section of railway officials, sources said.
Exchanging railway lines between Thiruvananthapuram and Madurai divisions could be a solution for the troubles faced by these border districts, said an official from the Southern Rail. “But more than being an administrative matter, this is a decision that should be taken politically,” the official added.

First of all a long distance train should cater for long distances! In other words a long distance train may cater to an intermediate strech in addition. For example jayanthi janatha is a train which is supposed to cater guntakal ,kadapa ,mantralayam road etc..... in addition to dat it caters Kaniyakumari to trivandrum ,ernakulam etc....
What sort of step motherly treatment do they get? They get a best treatment possible though it may be dumping. The 'perfectly dumped' train is ernad only. People cannot board it at any cost. Parasuram though
not at so good timings fro nagercoil it is not so bad either. It is a good intercity from the nagercoil side towards ernakulam,kottayam,etc... madurai division has rameshwaram , tiruchendur,tirunelveli, etc... as better terminals compared to Kaniyakumari and nagercoil to where upon extension of trains they'll lose their share of quota too.
For a long distance train surely an hour of travel is not going to matter at all and always rather than 'shorter distance' , ' shorter time' matters. A simple example is prefering of salem-bangalore via bangarapet than via dharmapuri. Expecting the long distance trains to cater small distances or as intercities is mere absurdity and ridiculousness. In another point of view their so called 'dumping or kerala route' has earned them better connections to kolkata,katra and many places. In their view it has earned them coimbathore, tiruppur, erode connections which they wont get otherwise as shortest route is via dindukkal,namakkal. Through tamilnadu they have thirukkural , Bangalore and the mumbai train. All a place needs is a good train and they need to check the destination and time , not the intermediates! A nagercoil bangalore can cater nagercoil to salem passengers but it should cater nagercoil bangalore primarily. Now the mumbai train via tamilnadu is not a shortest route and shortest is via kerala ! So can we take the train via trivandrum and konkan? Will they agree? Island was from trivandrum and meant for kerala which they had asked for! Now they change their colour!wow! If they can spent extra money on Nagercoil mumbai then why cant on the other trains? Travel Time is just differing by an hour or around! Tirunelveli bilaspur is a proper dumping which is justified, agreed, but even at trivandrum its just a not so bad time! Dibrugarh train will cover the southern capital and timings Show that its not bad enough to be diverted via tamil nadu.
If punalur and nagercoil are exchanged
This will result in maximum extension of sengottai trains to Kollam or trivandrum! That means pothigai and madurai passengers will come and dats all! Madurai division has better terminals as destinations and Kaniyakumari will not or has no more need for a train than one or two short distance trains! The existing services will continue or if withdrawn naturally they'll lose existing connections only! The trivandrum division may dump or may be serving kerala but indirectly Kaniyakumari has only benefits of long distance connections which many places dont have ! So an exchange may not bring in Good results in my opinion!

Only a few major cities can sustain a Shatabdi, so that's not the best way to go. Rajya Rani trains already connect state capitals with other cities of importance[maybe tier up this category than introduce a new one]. GR rakes have been stopped producing,I think. That leaves day time JS as the best option.

i am going for others as there is need of slow passengers as well as express with more stops in some region and there is need of superfast connectivity JS connectivity as well as long weekly connectivity. A single class alone cant give solution

Plz read and share your support or views
Mangaluru Central- A terminal dealing with 26 trains(19 daily) and yet too far from its demands !
Mangaluru,being the entry point of Karnataka, deals with 19 daily trains, a hexa weekly demu and few bi weeklies and weeklies and yet it is really disappointed when it comes to its own demands! It has more than one daily train to the capital cities of tamil nadu and kerala. Some views are that trains are being dumped at mangalore. It may be true but mangalore is in
such a situation that its share will be rejected ! He is a lucky chap to get a rajdhani train from kerala through it which they can use to the national capital! But its location is in such a way that it has three routes-one towards kerala side covering kasargod,kannur,kozhikode,shoranur ; another towards madgaon via udupi, byndoor mookhambika road, karwar ; and one towards subrahmanya Raod,Sakleshpur .

The sakleshpur line has restrictions based on ghats and hmrdua through which it has bangalore connections. So one route is blocked from routing further trains. The need of the hour for mangaluru is a hubli, bangalore and vishakapatnam daily at convenient timings. Since one route is blocked it has two routes- the Kerala route and the madgaon route. The route towards hubli from madgaon is not accessible due to the kulem-castle rock ghat section which has restrictions. So that too is blocked ! For the 3 needs of the hour mangaluru is in a pathetic situation as the route through panvel or kerala is too lengthy and time consuming and thus those two are also blocked !
Being a good city showing patronage they should get more trains and ofcourse they deserve more! Moreover there are no good amount (not more than 2) plying in the konkan route to mangalore for the benifit of intermediate passengers!
Kasargod can be developed as a terminal to stop a chennai mangalore train and 2 trivandrum mangalore trains there. But with this solution only passenger trains can be introduced in mangaluru towards konkan. An alternative line like thalassery-mysuru or byndoor mookhambika road - shivamogga or any route needs approval and immediate execution to bring in revenue and comfort to the passengers. If such a route comes then it is easy as the passengers can be shifted from sr to kr ! Again the construction is not so easy and is really rough and tough as nature doesn't permit it! It is because western ghats spread from kaniyakumari to mumbai doesn't have a natural pathway in the above strech! But a big need is a new line to bring in good news for mangaluru! Lets hope it happens soon!
