Most of the days it is stopping there in ernakulam north station(its just 3 km away from the last station- ernakulam south) for more than 30 minutes. It is stopping in the middle track so the people cant get down there also.

Coz, the stoppage isnt official, but is done technically (Track Clearance or Train Crossing).
In this case, Stoppage @ Station isnt been required by IR. Be thankful if its been stopped, as in this case too, needy people alight!!

The halt at Ernakulam station should be increased to 5 minutes. The train starts before the people boarding the train. Especially in the coaches D9, D10, D11 and D12.
Even the guard also not checking this. Around 100 people getting down the train and around 100 people boarding the train with luggages through 2 doors is literally impossible.
If its not happening, it may take the life of any innocent man/woman.

This is new introduced just few weeks back.
Last friday i was travelling in this train from ERN to CLT, there was no vacant seats at all.
when started the 12075/12076 was also facing the same issue.but now days getting a ticket in this train is very difficult.
Because of the doubling work going on in the ERN-KYJ it is not sticking on the
right time.
I hope once the current activities in the Mavelikkara- kayamkulam region over it can follow the timings
This train is reaching regularly calicut around 10:30- 11:00 pm. instead of the scheduled 10:05, so most of the people wont get any connection buses to their place.
For every business u have to wait for a Brek even point.
So wait few more weeks to reach a conclusion.

It is depend upon the TTEs.
I used to travel in 12081 from CLT to ERN , When any person with open ticket asked the TTEs for a conversion they are giving with out any hesitation.
I had a different experiance also.
Once I travelled in 12076 from ERN to CLT , the person gave me open ticket and told me to ask
TTe for conversion.When I asked the TTE, he was very rude and told me "Conversion is not my duty". But no TTEs came to the compartment till CLT.

SRR to TCR the main problem is the bharathappuzha Bridge. the same line is used by the Trains to and fro SRR.
For the trains coming directly from ottappalam towards Trichur, they can use both tracks.Because of the single track issue most of the time trains towards SRR has to wait there near to the Bridge.
In simple contrary to southern railway, there is only single track from SRR station and the south side of Bharathappuzha bridge.

Already there are 2 trains from calicut to shornur by 5AM and 5:20 am, Mangala and shornur passenger.Mangala will be there up to Ernakulam.If people want to reach ern before jan shatabdi can utilise that.
Most of the passengers travelling in jan shatabdi is coming from out side the corporation limit, and utilising the busservice. The first bus from different routes reaching calicut by 6am Except the highways.
Average running speed of this train is 57 km/hr.
is not a bad speed , can be reached most of the destination before time.
For improoving the speed
1) Avoid stopping in stations like Ankamaly , aluva etc..
2) Give preferance in crossings (ERN-KYJ)
More than this try to complete the doubling in ERN- KYJ atleast by next decade.

In that case it effect
1) The CLT-SRR passenger so the connection SRR-CBE passenger also.
2) Mangala Express.
Now it is effecting only Island express.
That also when it is stopping stations like pudukkad
or irinjalakkuda jan shatabdi overtaking that.
If both Kerala Express and jan shatabdi are running on time, there wont be any disturbances.
Kerala should pass ERN by 9:25 at that time Jan shatabdi would be reaching aluva.
But most of the time Jan shatabdi is following Kerala from ankamaly to Ernakulam.

Jan shtabdi usually take 30-40 minutes in SRR -TCR region.
May be because of some unplanned stoppages it took 1 hour.

Why the people in the Calicut station is not allowing to Reach the Jan Shatabdi on time.
Most of the days this train is reaching Tirur on time and reaching kallayi by 9:50 and stopped there and waiting there for the signal for around 30 minutes.
Just check the below timings
21-Jan Friday (First Day) Reached Kallayi by 9:50 and reached CLt
by 10:55)
28-Jan Friday (Delayed from Tvc itself) Reached CLT by 11PM
4-Feb Friday Reached Kallayi by 10Pm and Reached CLT by 10:30
11-Feb Friday Reached Kallayi by 9:45 and Reached CLT by 10:20
But hats off to the Engine Drivers.

Pantry should be there because there are less number of stations and the halt is less than 5 minutes. So getting food for the entire family especially travelling with kids and all is very difficult.
