It was running with E-Loco until PGTN for several years prior to PGT-POY GC. Maybe there is some LSA with other trains for the incoming e-loco until SRR.

Now both 22609/10 intercity getting ED WDP 4D loco along with ED WDM 3D. I believe its due to 16649/50, 16605/06 getting E-loco end to end.

Re# 2260715-1            Tags   Past Edits
16605/06 has nothing to do with this. Because it used to run with ERS ALCO. And ERS ALCO hasn't replaced any link of ED to get WDP4D free.
The actual reason is change in LSA pattern. With 2 EMD trains(Parasu and Malabar) moving to eloco. There was changes in LSA. That could be the reason of change in loco of ICE.
Previously, loco which comes with netravathi used to go with parasu to MAQ, and that loco will go to TPJ with MAQ-MS express. Now with Parasu moving to eloco, this LSA patten
has change.

No casualties or injuries as the train was being hauled for maintenance
Two coaches of the Chennai-Mangaluru Central Express, including the generator van coach, derailed after jumping the shunting neck when it was being shunted towards the pit line near Mangaluru Central on Tuesday. Since the train was being shunted for maintenance, there were no passengers and hence no injuries.
The incident occurred at around 11.55 a.m. as the train was being reversed using speed beyond the prescribed limits, sources in Southern Railway said.
the line to the maintenance yard was blocked due to the incident, officials were worried about operation of other trains. However, within an hour, empty coaches, except the two that had got derailed, were removed. Workers attending the mishap were of the opinion that it would take at least two days to remove the derailed coaches as the generator van had climbed on the earth which was at a higher level.
Railway sources said operation of other trains to and from Mangaluru Central remained unaffected.

Although Palakkad is geographically situated in Central Kerala, Majority of the Dist. belongs to the Erstwhile Malabar Dist. which includes Palakkad,Mannarkkad,Ottapalam & Pattambi except Chittur & Alathur which was under Cochin Presidency.

Although it starts and ends at Punalur, more importance is given for the timings of other Imp stations like Kollam , Kottayam, Ernakulam, Thrissur & Palakkad as it expects more commuters from these stations especially office-goers.

Re# 2227319-9            Tags   Past Edits
As told by some local memebrs,they say this train won't benifit CBE passengers as its taking very long route etc...
Also LR in TCR could be done without without taking much time and also this returns only next day morning..so time is not a concern here.
If CBE ppl itself feel its not good for them,then why not from somewhere ,where it would be good for ppl.
train from GUV connecting PLNI, MDU,RMM pilgrimage centers would have been great.
The reason that its from CBE,is simply because they are using rake of CBE-KJM spl to run this train.

This train if regularised and made daily, could be a blessing for the daily commuters in the PGT TCR ERS route. It can fill in the old TT of 16526 Island Exp @ 06.40 PGT. Hopefully, it materializes.
