Onboard 12601, arrived shoranur at 5.45 ahead of schedule time, also delay was around 7 mins at Palakkad not that big considering usual delays for one mail, i think the RPM P7 the loco link till SRR today helped... now for usual delays at SRR for loco change and allowing Yesvantpur - Kannur to overtake.

At least 3 new WAP7 has completed their IC at RPM, and 1 is in shed and 2 are in transit,after they had mentioned loco shortage back in April 1st Week.
30528 RPM/SR 07-Apr-17 24-Apr-17 11-May-17
30538 RPM/SR 17-Apr-17 29-Apr-17 11-May-17
30541 RPM/SR 22-Apr-17 10-May-17 10-Jun-17
biggest problem i have seen is the traction substation. substation at Uppalla in one video i have seen is probably about to get completed (any one from MAQ side can confirm). Tirur i have personally seen, there seems to be no rush to complete it... probably they will do it before next financial year target.

Does any trains actually make use of existing RPM HOG capable loco's ? from what i remember they were doing some test runs with Coimbatore shatabdi. Trains like Trivandrum mail which is LHB'fied and having P7 links are still using EOGs

Just wondering where RPM WAP7 loco's are, seen couple of post where they ran multiple south bound trains on diesel link, Guruvayur, Vaigai etc. They usually get WAP7 i believe.

That was due to doubling work. All trains were diverted via mainline.
