Travelled in yesterday ,14.10.16 Pune departure Chennai mail at 18.10 in S5 coach to Chennai in Mumbai to Chennai Central Express and arrived Chennai Central at 16.40 ,just ten minutes delay.
Maintenance ::
The cleanliness and watering are good.
The coach is good old one operated between Mumbai Metro to Chennai Metro via Pune Mini Metro.
...
more...
Minimum Facilities :::
This S5 coach 3rd bay does not have dining tray.
No cell charging point provided in all these bays.
No plastic wired water bottle holder in this bsy of berths 25 to 32 .
Our Indian Railway should be provided at least water bottle holder in wired plastic (the cheapest arrangement) or mettalic bottle holder to all the Sleeper class passengers individually in their berth.
Train operation:;;
Mumbai to Chennai express is operated as Fast Passenger in Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh with slow speed and more number of stoppages.
This train operated up to Arakkonam in time and departure at Arakkonam at 14.20 today,15.10.16.
This train has no stoppages at Thiruvallur ,but Stopped for 10 minutes in the Thiruvallur western outer signal.Moreover this train stopped at Basin Bridge western outer signal and stopped in the Basin Bridge station around 40 minutes and started at 16.30 and arrived Central station 10 minutes late in No 1 platform.
Arakkonam to Chennai Central takes 2 hour 20 minutes to reach the extreme northern side of the number 1 platform.Platform 1 to 5 may be utilized exclusively for the Northern trains via Gudur .Platforms 6 and above shall be utilized for Arakkonam side trains . Since this train traditionally allotted to the extrem. Northern platform number 1 ,it have to be held up at Basin Bridge more than 40 minutes to cross all the Central station platform from Southern end to the Extreme Northern end.
From Arakkonam to Chennai Central travel 2Expresses and 3 sub- urban passengers over taken this train.
SR shall be received this Express in the southern side of the platforms close to Moore Market Complex ( platforms number 6 and above.
My suggestion for this express train operation between 2 Metros of Arabic coast to Bay of Bengal .
This train have to be operated as Super Fast and arrive Chennai central around 4 hours before ie is 12.30 . Otherwise in the present Express form at least 2 hours before arrival time of Chennai around 14.30.
Pune to Sholapur Hutama ordinary express started at Pune at 18.00 daily and arrived Solapur at 22.00.But Mumbai to Chennai Central express started at Pune at 18.10 and reached Sholapur 23.15 ( additional travelling time of 1 hour and 5 minutes of same category of express with same stoppages for both of distance 263 km only ).
So as this express can be saved at least 2 hour running time and arrived Chennai Central around 14.30.
Hope that our CR,SCR and SR shall be operated this train with lesser travelling time of 2 hours as Expresses and Saved 4 hours of running time as SUPER FAST .and received in platforms in the Southern side close to Moore Market side ( platform no 6 and above ),so as this train can not be blocked all the Central station platforms.

MADURAI: A public interest litigation (PIL) has been filed at the Madurai bench of the Madras high court seeking to annex unreserved general coaches, unreserved coaches for women and coach for differently-abled persons in Pandian Superfast Express.
R Rajaselvam from Dindigul filed the petition. On that, the division bench ordered notice to the Southern Railway general manager, senior railway divisional manager and divisional commercial manager of Madurai and adjourned the case.
The petitioner said that the Pandian Express runs from Madurai to Chennai covering 493 km and stops at many intermediate stations. After

more...
it started running with Linke Hofmann Busch (LHB) coaches from August this year the number of coaches were reduced to 22 from 24. Of these 22, only two coaches have been allotted for unreserved passengers. There is no separate coach for women and disabled persons. Earlier, out of 24 coaches, three unreserved general compartments and one unreserved coach for women were there.the two unreserved coaches are not sufficient for passengers. Due to it, passengers, especially women using unreserved coaches are affected. TNNBesides, the present action of the railways is against the provisions of Railways Act. Thus, insisting to annex additional coaches including for women and disabled a representation was sent to the railway officials on September 10. But there was no action, the petitioner said.

Upgrade Ananthapuri Express
The prestigious Train No. 12633/12634 Chennai Egmore-Kanniyakumari Superfast Express is losing its sheen due to delayed operations on both directions for over forty days, said the Kanniyakumari District Rail Users Association (KDRUA) here on Saturday.
In a release issued here, P. Edward Jeni, secretary said that Kanniyakumari Express suffered several hours of delayed operations due to rake sharing with Train No: 16525/16526 Kanniyakumari-Bengaluru Island Express.
KDRUA

has urged the authorities to upgrade Train No: 16723/16724 Thiruvananthapuram-Chennai Ananthapuri Express as Superfast and ensure the train reaches Chennai Egmore at 6 a.m. in the morning.

Island should be speeded up by removing all unnecessary halts. RSA b/w Island and CAPE-MS should be discarded because turnaround time is very less.

Island can RSA with NCJ SBC Turn around time will be fine. CAPE MS can RSA with PC as before. that will save rake for SWR also SR can run its train good. but KKRUA receiving what they asked for . let them realize their foolishness before getting such good things.

Island and KK exp having RSA is good in the sense that it eliminates 1 rake and may free PF at NCJ. If I am right, Island was taken to NCJ. The first daily train from South is CAPE which reaches MS at 6:45. Families withsmall kids who reach Chennai by that train cannot go to school on that day itself. KK exp can take the slot of Silambu/NCJ weekly (and vice versa) so that it reaches MS by 5:45. But now itself the turn around time is very less.So my suggestion is SWAP SBC-KCVL and SBC-CAPE Island exp timings and SWAP CAPE-MS and Silambu/NCJ-MS timing

What type of Zone is SWR...
All trains during this season are running WL 180 above, and not even a single special train between within state... what type of service can anyone expect.....
I just crossed Majestic and its jam packed with atleast 300 buses...
Atleast a single train with 20 coaches between Bangalore and Belgaum, another to Mangalore could reduce pollution of 40
...
more...
buses....
A common has to pay 1500 Rs in Normal sleeper bus... if today SWR Could have run a special with 600 Rs (which double the current fare and half to the fare charged by bus operators)between Bangalore Hubli, that train could also have full WL..
SWR is full on runninh with bus lobby...

Even during normal times, there is only half train from Mangalore to SBC. That too it arrives late at SBC making it difficult for office goers. One chitradurga boy challenged me that there was no station there.
An overnight SBC-MAQ vis ASK is needed apart from the current ONT. The HPT-SBC FP should be speeded up. It arrives BT at many places and halts unnecessarily long time.

Brother. It is not possible for a train coming to SBC from YPR to reverse and go to KJM. Trains from YPR can arrive in PF 8,9,& 10 at SBC. Trains to KJM has to necessarily go from PF1 to 7 in SBC. So please route the train via BAND and KJM

Thanks for this information. I think that is because PFs 8,9 & 10 curve out of the rest of the PFs. So there is no way to enter PFs1 to 7 for trains coming from YPR line. Please clarify.

The train needs to share the path from VM-MS. There is literally no SLOT at that time. Better the train starts from RMM at day. This is my suggestion. FLAG is GREEN
