I heard a news today, On friday onwards, this service is short terminated at Kottayam, Is this true? I heard this is because of commissioning of Mavelikkara - Kayamkulam 2 patch doubling?

its becose of its timing.It is very difficult to maintain its schedule while diverting via ALLP.Any way its temp arrangement and mvlk-kyj doubling may help its performance also

It may be Didi in not putting much stress on GR as lalu ji's
Ministers should introduce new train but also look after the existing ones
I think not much importance is given on them

12255 Exp
Avl: 238 (14 Jan)
HO: 24
CK: 118
Total Avl: 380

Total Berth: 16*78=1248
Berth Utilized: 866
Capacity Utilization: 69.55%
Fare: 381
Revenue: 381*866= 3.3 Lakh (Approx)
Diesel (@10L/Km): 456*10*50=2.28 Lakh
Gross Revenue: 1.02 Lakh
Gross Revenue Monthly (8 Trips): 8.15 Lakh
1. WDG-4 Consumption: 4L/Km (10 is too high guess, still taken)
2. Date taken is the last possible
3. Budgeting trip Month over Month will lead monthly trip getting more than 8 to 8.5, hence more gross revenue.
To find NET, plz deduct Monthly Salary (8/30*Salary Share been utilized to run this train)-Gross
1. Main & Asst Driver
2. Guard
3. 2 TTE (GR runs with 2 TTE as running staff)
4. 5-6 Attendent
I dont think combine, this will come near to 1.5 to 2 Lakh (At Higest Scale)
Note: I havnt seen any GRP in GR ever.
Still this GR do have some 5-6 Lakh to spare before sanctioned as loss making!!!

Just a suggestion...
Since tracks towards TVC from Kottayam and Allapuzha are saturated, wouldn't it make sense to proceed to TVC from Nagercoil side ?
When trains from the north reach Tamil Nadu, instead of going through Palakkad via Erode to reach TVC, the trains can be routed through Tirunelveli-Nagercoil routed.
The Ananthapuri express can run via Punalur-Shengottai route when guage conversion is

there are enough trains plying on that route..
Enough ? based on which matter ? Kerala is highly thik populated state and does not have travel fecility as per requirment.If there is enough trains, then why the people of this area is waiting for overcrowded trains? As a capital of kerala TVC is getting very less compired to chennai or bangalore. As I agree both places are metro.

Is there any new WDP4B loco ocation for ERS ?
Its should be at at least an Electric Loco Shed in kerala at ERNAKULAM. There is no WAP7 to kerala even if the line are capable of handing a WAP7 train up to ERS.
Once SRR-MAQ line get electrified can we expect a loco shed?
ERS is now a dumping yard of old Desel
comments awaited......

Kerala electrc loco cicle is well maintained by Erode, Arakkonam and Royapuram.
The only possibility of an electric loco shed in Kerala in in Kochuveli(Trivandrum).
Tvc being the second most important and busiest station in south India has only a trip shed..

WAP-7 has just entered SR territorry-but still no loco shed-WAp-7 in the south is maintained at LGD depot shed as of now-Charminar is hauled by it to Chennai and Lalbagh/Kaveri express to Bangalore from there-slowly it wll penetrate in few years time

I think kochuveli can't accomodate an ELS due to the insufficiant area. Already a coach mentance shed as wellas pit line, stable line works are going on there.More Over an electric drip shed is at TVC. It is better to be a ELC at ERS for many reasons.
We can expect TVC mail and super fast may run with brand new RPM WAP-7 with in 1 year

Trip shed is not suitable for carrying out complicated repair work...
The shed at TVC is puny... Kochuveli has enough space to accomodate the loco...
We can soon expect locos of all types to be branded Kochuveli !!!

Ernakulam-Mulanthuruthy-18km doubling was completed a few months ago. Still speed is restricted in this section, where cut and connection occurs.
Mulanthuruthy-Kottayam sector even does not have started the doubling work. Surveys are still pending.
Kottayam-Chengannur also the same situation. Chengannur-Mavelikara work is very slow, Mavelikara-Kayankulam is in the final stages.
