While on one hand they say they need more loco to be allocated to SR for them to run trains in the Shornur - Mangalore section then there is this article which talks about SR having excess loco (passenger and freight).

Elathur i have seen (during a trip from Calicut to Thallasery) that the substation was ready 2-3 months back and the underground cable from KSEB was being laid to Elathur that time, not sure if the substation was commissioned, Tirur is no where near completion, yesterday when i was travelling through there, i could see only basic foundation work has been done not even boundary fence was up.

I think there are some issues with KSEB also. They are unable to provide the power to railway. As you mentioned Elathur was almost ready 2-3 months back.

Mar 13 2017 (12:21)   Green signal to run electric trains up to Mangaluru

vipinpv   1 news posts
Entry# 2196203   News Entry# 296220         Tags   Past Edits
Scripting a major milestone in the annals of the over-a-century-old rail line between the 307-km-long Mangalore and Shoranur junction, the Southern Railway has virtually given the green signal to run electric locomotives on the remaining 84-km-long stretch between Charvathur and Mangalore Central stations.
The Railways in all probability would operate the electric locomotive by March-end, up to Mangaluru. A team of senior Railway officials led by Bengaluru-based Commissioner of Railway Safety (CRS), Southern Circle, K.A. Manoharan carried out a detailed inspection of the newly electrified railway section on Saturday.
The team left Mangaluru

Central station at 10 a.m in the special inspection car and inspected the level-crossing gates, curves, tunnel and bridges located within the section. The team reached Charvattur at 3.30 p.m. The team members also examined Kasaragod railway station, Bekal Fort sectioning post and commissioned the new electric feeder sub-station at Charvattur.
In the return direction, the team conducted a speed trial run at the stipulated 110 kmph leaving Charvattur at 5.48 p.m. to arrive at Mangaluru Central at 6.52 p.m., Railway sources told The Hindu here on Sunday.
The CRS, in all probability, would give the certification to run the electric locos in a couple of days, sources said.
Having commissioned the electric feeder sub-stations at Elathur, near Kozhikode, and the latest at the Charvathur station, the Railways would be in a position to haul up to 75 per cent of the passenger and freight traffic, a senior Railway official said.
The CRS was accompanied by S. Ramasubbu, Chief Electrical Distribution Engineer, Southern Railway; G.P. Garg, Deputy Commissioner of Railway Safety (Electrical); and Srinivasan, Deputy Commissioner of Railway Safety (Signal).
K. Nagendra Prasad, Chief Project Director, and V. K. Manoharan, Deputy Chief Engineer-Rail Electrification-Kannur of the Railway Electrification wing, were present.

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.

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?
