B2 Coach is inserted between B1 and S1 that would be 8th Coach, Total Coaches increased to 22, Return Train #12685 seems to have been updated already.

Electrified Shoranur-Cheruvathur railway line to be inaugurated today......
Currently power is being drawn from the Shoranur and Kannur South substations for the rail traffic. The Shoranur substation is already supplying extra load of power. But this will not suffice to run electric engines for the entire traffic along the newly electrified route.
Electrified Shoranur¬Cheruvathur railway line to be inaugurated today Palakkad: The fully electrified Shoranur¬ Cheruvathur railway track will be inaugurated today by the Railway minister Suresh Prabhu through a video conferencing session from Ernakulam. Even though the track is all ready

to fast track the rail movement in the region, it will be a while before trains actually speed through these electric tracks, thanks to the delayed substation work. Currently power is being drawn from the Shoranur and Kannur South substations for the rail traffic. The Shoranur substation is already supplying extra load of power. But this will not suffice to run electric engines for the entire traffic along the newly electrified route. The substations at Tirur and Elathur are not yet ready neither is the railways promising a date to look forward to. The Cheruvathur substation is also under construction but this will be required only when the trains start running towards the Mangalore side. Otherwise there is just one passenger train that runs to Cheruvathur. The lone train that runs on an electric engine between this stretch is the Jan Shatabdi Express. Other than this there may just be an occasional goods train that runs on an electric engine along this path. The two and fro Executive Express trains along the Ernakulam¬Kannur and Alappuzha¬Kannur routes, the Ernakulam¬Kannur Intercity Express Trains and the Coimbatore¬Kannur Passenger trains were being considered by the division for upgradation into the electric engines. This hasn't become practical yet due to the power shortage and the divisions haven't received any communication till Wednesday for any immediate upgradation citing the non¬completion of the substations.

The thing i am not able to understand is effective load on the line would be total of load from all running loco's active on the track at same time, so when calicut janashatabdi or any freight is not there on the line there is almost zero load...

If there is a problem with substations then they can atleast run 12081 / 82 with e loco to save change over time at SRR.

Maybe there is a loby who is against this shift happening immediately and want to delay as much as possible, could be loco pilots/staff who might be affected.. or food stall/vendors who benefits from these 15-20 minute halts at shoranur

This train still runs with a diesel loco between SRR and CAN. It does not get an electric loco; so why was the link updated? Has anyone spotted it with an electric loco after SRR?
