Hey.... any one know y the train 16517 takes higher time(2.30 hrs more) than 16527 even when the distance covered by 16517 is 66 K.M short of the other?PLease see the attached screen shot
Please answer me for the following
1.Does the train takes a long route to destination?why it takes so?
2.Unusual,Unnecessary extended halts in some stations like Mangalore?Why?
speed at which train moves? Why?
4.All the above are done intentionally to help the bus lobby of Kannnur and Kasargod district??

this has to climb up an ddown the ghats abetween Sakleshpur and Subramanya road where it cant run more than speed of 45 kmph max
This train was first introduced to mangalore and later to kannur-its mainly a bangalore-mangalore train and hence goes to mangalore central reverses and goes to kannur owing to which it has a extended halt at mangalore
Bus lobby played instrumental in not introducing another daily to mangalore from bangalore and also in extending this till kannur rather than terminating at mangalore

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries.
