Palakkad-Pollachi Section, Pollachi-Podanur Section & Pollachi-Dindigul section are under Guage conversion now.
Once these lines are completed, Southern Tamil Nadu will get direct connectivity to the Central India as well as the West Coast, also restoring the old Palakkad-Rameswaram Passengers.

Sir, although it is understood that people from around Coimbatore/Podanur will know best about that region, others still try to answer to the best of their capabilities. If Manoj is wrong, you may politely say so, and he will desist from his replies regarding Coimbatore. All we ask is that please do not use hurtful phrases like "unwanted replies", etc. Hope you understand. Thanks.

Yes, Mr.Shanavas you said rightly. We can expect more trains via Coimbatore Jn. towards Palghat, now running direct to Podhanur from Irugur. Once again the work started near Peelamedu in the second line, after the completion of second line work between Irugur and Coimbatore North.

Yes I am from Rajasthan but I have lived in Manipal are for more than 2 years.
Maybe I dont know a lot but by looking at the latest IR Map, I can see that if a train goes to Coimbatore(CBE) from Podanur which is just 6Kms, it has to come back to the main line.
I dont know that but there might be a provision of a sharp turn to let the train get back in the main route, without changing the direction of the engine, but still it will
...
more...
involve a lot of time.
So I was advocating a stop at Podanur, instead of travelling upto CBE.
Mr. shanavas adviced it to travel to Coimbatore North, but then how will the train come back to its main route without reversing.
Please see this latest route map of the IR

Yes This train should stop at podanur and thiruppur as this is the only train which runs daily apart from trains coming and going from chennai and mangalore. So this train should have a stop in podanur and thiruppur.

Sir,
I would advice you to search for Railway Time table published by Bradshaw. They have routes with each and every station with distances. Though I think these are not published any more but you can find an old copy in the book stalls or a library.
Best of luck

cochin harbour terminus is a railway station on cochin island. it is not used anymore for express train services. ernakulam jn and ernakulam town (both on mainland) are now the stations used.
For those who do not know the geography of this place.........ernakulam is the city on mainland and has railway stations ernakulam jn and ernakulam town. just across a narrow channel lies the island of cochin (now known as kochi) and cochin has a railway connection and a railway station called cochin harbour terminus......this station was used previously but now not used anymore......trains which earlier used to run to cochin ht are now terminated at ernakulam jn railway station.

There are two main railway stations—the Ernakulam Junction and the Ernakulam Town (locally known as the 'South' and 'North' railway stations respectively).

Yes one is Perumanoor and other Mattancheri Halt.But Perumanoor is long closed down.mattancheri Halt is still present.But due to problems with the Venduruthy bridge enroute no trains operate from Cochin harbour terminus, though there has been widespread demand for it.

Re# 58562-10            Tags   Past Edits
You said first that ' Malleswaram stop is not required'. Thats why I pointed that this train does not go to Malleswaram.
And you are right that this train has one hour time table between Banaswadi and Yesvantpur, a distance of 15Km. Please note that the train stops at Banaswadi & Karmalarema to benifit the Suburb people and IT Professionals especially to KR Puram, IndiraNagar, RM Nagar, Whitefield, E City, Marathahalli regions because they have difficulty in covering back some 15-25Km from YPR. The other areas in the western part are quite resonably reachable from Yesvantpur like RT Nagar, Malleswaram, RMV IInd Stage etc.
But
...
more...
as having much slower time table, this train may stop at Hebbal & Lottegollahalli for signal clearence.

Hi Krishna Prasad,
From Hebbal it takes not more than 7 kms to reach yeshwanthpur. But in between 2 stops is not required. That is why i mentioned hebbal is required. How can people travel to yelankha and all. I feel atleast when this train comes from kerala hebbal stop is required as people can go to their offices quickly. But while going to kerala it is still ok.
