Your suggestion of extending Puducherry - Tirupathi & Mannargudi -Tirupathi express trains to Vijayawada is good.In this I wish add my opinion to extend them beyond Vijayawada. For the first one to kakinada and the second one to Visakhapatnam since it is a long request of Yenam people to have direct link to their Union territory capital of Pondicherry.Then secondly, Mannargudi & Visakhapatnam have unique features of having Fertilizer factories namely Pamani & Coromandal Grover & it will helpful to them in transferring & exchanging their raw materials for their manufacturing.

Feb 05 2015 (07:26)   Kasaragod-Byndoor train to be launched this month

The new passenger train announced in the Railway Budget 2014-15 between Kasaragod and Byndoor (56665/56666) would be launched before the end of this month.
A top official in the Southern Railway headquarters told The Hindu that the Railways’ effort is to operationalise trains announced in this budget before the next one is presented. The Railway Budget 2015-16 is slated for February 26.
The officer said coaches for the new train are also getting ready. It will have 16 coaches in all — 14 second class sitting coaches and two luggage-cum-brake vans.

train leaves Kasaragod at 6.40 a.m., reaches Mangaluru Junction at 8.05 a.m. and reaches Mookambika Road Byndoor at 11.50 a.m. In the return direction, the train leaves Byndoor at 1.05 p.m., reaches Mangaluru Junction at 4.50 p.m. to reach Kasaragod at 6.10 p.m. It will stop at Kumbla, Uppala, Manjeshwar, Ulla, Mangalore Junction, Thokur, Surathkal, Nandikoor, Padubidri, Innanje, Udupi, Barkur, Kundapura, Senapura and Bijoor.
Not via Central
The passenger train would not run via Mangaluru Central as demanded by the public and Paschima Karavali Rail Yatri Abhivriddhi Samiti, the officer said. The intention behind the introduction of the train is to provide a direct service between Kasaragod and Byndoor.
If the train is routed via Mangaluru Central, it would inconvenience the direct passengers, he said. Moreover, Mangaluru Junction is not far away from the city and those interested can make use of the facility, he added.
Samithi Convener Anil Hegde had said if Mangaluru Central is left out of the service, it would defeat the very purpose of the new train. Mangaluru city has been the centre for trade and education, both for Kasaragod and Udupi regions and if the train skirts the Central station, passengers would have to use Mangaluru Junction, located away from the National Highway, he pointed out.
Passengers would have spend more than 10 times of the train fare to avail autorickshaw services at Mangaluru Junction, Mr. Hegde pointed out.
The train will leave Kasaragod at 6.40 a.m. and reaches Byndoor at 11.50 a.m.
The train will leave Byndoor at 1.05 p.m. and reaches Kasaragod at 6.10 pm.

If this train is extended upto Guruvayur and made to run between Byndoor & Guruvayur stations, It will pave the way for connecting both Krishna Shrine towns and surely get much popularity among the pilgrims too, of those who wishes to visit both Krishna temples together in a single journey without any changeovers at any stations in between.Concerned railway authorities should make note of my plea and give due consideration to my humble request and I wish to say that it was suggested by me earlier also in one of my postings.

************ Famous Temple Town of South India and a famous travelling spot for pilgrimage situated just 11 km away from Kanyakumari(Cape Comorin)*************
In this blog I am describing the detailed account of Suchindram which is a panchayat town in Kanniyakumari district in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu with Indian postal code as 629704. It is an important pilgrim centre and the site of the famous Thanumalayan Temple. Suchindram is famous to the tourists for Suchindram Temple which is a famous place of Pilgrimage to the tourists of not only this country but also to the foreigners. For this reason this blog is posted under the Category "General Travel" and also linked with the station "Nagercoil" which is just about

7 km from Suchindram and the nearest Railway Station of Suchindram.
Location:
Suchindram is about 11 km from Kanyakumari and about 7 km from Nagarcoil lying between these two towns. Busses ply from Thirunelveli, Kanyakumari and Trivandram. The nearest railway station is Nagarcoil on the Trivandrum - Kanyakumari section of the Southern Railway.Suchindram has an average elevation of 19 metres (62 feet). Suchindram is a temple town situated in the southern most district of Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu State, India. It is 11 km from Kanyakumari city and 7 km from Nagarcoil town 70 km from adjacent Tirunelveli district and approximately 85 km from Trivandrum city. The town of Suchindrum is renowned for the Thanumalayan Temple and was an important citadel of Travancore.
Uniqueness of Suchindram Temple:
Suchindram temple is unique in the whole of India in that it is dedicated to three different deities represented by one image in the sanctum and is called Sthanumalayan (Sthanu-Shiva; Maal-Vishnu and Ayan-Brahma) kovil. The temple is rich in sculpture and architecture and a visitor to this temple is amply rewarded with the sight of such exquisite art of hundreds of years old
Mythology regarding Suchindram Temple:
The entrance tower to this temple is visible from a distance as it rises majestically for 134 feet. The face of the tower is covered with sculptures and statues from Hindu mythology. There is a covered area in front of the main entrance and the entrance itself is about 24 feet high with a beautifully carved door. There is only one corridor running along the outer wall of the temple with many shrines and mandapams scattered in the inner area. This temple attracts both Vaishnavites and Saivites in large numbers. About 30 shrines to various deities within the temple complex, the large Lingam in the sanctum, the idol of Vishnu in the adjacent shrine and a large idol of Hanuman at the Eastern end of the Northern corridor represent almost all the deities of the Hindu pantheon.

In Suchindram Temple , if you strike 7 different stones , you can hear the Saptha Swarangal (that is 7 Swarangal, namely of SA, RI, KA, MA, PA, THA, NI, SA in each different stone). You can spend a whole day in that temple as it has so much of interesting features & things to observe and see over there.

Even though extension of this Chennai- Palani Express to Pollachi is on the card, This area needs a separate express train preferably in the name of "ANAMALAI EXPRESS" at least from the next budget announcement between Pollachi & Chennai through Main line linking delta districts as well as temple cities viz. Palani, Dindigal, Trichy, Tanjore, Kumbakonam, Myladuthurai, Cuddalore ,Villupuram.Also it is very essential one as there is no train in this route for serving the needs of pilgrims and traders of these region.

For the year 2014-2015, already interim budget was announced in this February and new trains were announced by that time by the previous government Railway minister Mr. Mallikarjun karge. So, the next release of Railway budget by the present railway minister in a few days will be just formal only by the present elected government.At this juncture, instead of announcing any more new trains in his budget presentation, let him regularize the trains which were announced by the previous government by making them to run some of the trains which were not even inducted into track first.Secondly, most of the popular trains which are being run now with jam packed as weekly, biweekly, triweekly should be made into run as daily for creating the balanced network of current needs & demands.There are so many trains are being operated like this for many decades. Examples are Ganga kaveri express, Mahal...

express,, Vivek express, kovai- Rajkot express, Arabindo express, Vasco- Velankanni Express, Silambu express, Kovai -Rameswaram Express, Tirunelveli-Dadar express, Chalukya Express and so on in every zone. Apart from that, trains which were operated & later stopped due to gauge conversion are to be reintroduced and start their journey with their same names.Even for making all these into reality, Railway Ministry needs so many new coaches and they can utilize this period of next 7, 8 months for streamlining the back log and create a balanced network.Let the new railway ministry get shaped by utilizing this period and announce their own full pledged budget with any new amendments and introduction of new trains according to their desire by considering the basic facts & needs of general public in next February budget presentation. Till then, it is better and wise for not asking any more new trains at least upto next budget presentation as the existing list of so many announced trains have not yet rolled on tracks.Regards.

TOPICS transport accident railway accident A survivor of a major train disaster in Tamil Nadu shares the trauma she passed through, all of 57 years later
As a fortunate survivor of one of India’s deadliest railway disasters, the Ariyalur train accident, it is time to lay my story and the nightmarish ghosts to rest, by putting my experiences down in writing.
It occurred on November 23, 1956, leaving 142 passengers dead and 110 injured. An estimated 200 people were buried in the debris. Many were missing, their bodies never to be recovered.
Torrential rains had swollen the river Maruthaiyar to a level where the waters almost touched the rails on a bridge between the Ariyalur and Kallagam stations, breaking the embankment to a length of nearly 20 feet, causing flash floods.
Off the rails
About 2 miles after leaving Ariyalur station and 20 miles away from Trichinopoly (Tiruchirapalli), the train slipped off the rails. Its steam engine and seven timber-built carriages including the parcel van telescoped and fell into the river. The eighth coach derailed and four carriages in the rear remained intact.
Then aged 21, I had boarded the Thoothukudi (Tuticorin) Express at Madras (Chennai) at 9.50 the night before, with my aunt. Like Santa in his gift-filled sleigh, we were laden with our Christmas shopping from Moore Market, an old-fashioned steam engine deputising for the reindeer for our journey to Trichinopoly. We were the only occupants of a bay of the eighth compartment of the 13-coach train, one having been detached at Virudhachalam to go on to Salem separately. After a light meal, we settled down for the night and soon fell into deep sleep.
Our terrifying ordeal began with a tremendous jolt and bang. There was a sizzling hiss of steam and, then, ear-piercing screams. After being left sprawling across the floor of the compartment, my first urge after regaining my composure was to jump out of the train. My aunt grabbed me on time: “Don’t jump! We are on a river,” she screamed. She saved me from a watery grave.
Like a puppet on a string, I ran around the compartment in circles. My watch showed it was 5.30 a.m. Peering out of the window, the first crack of daylight revealed a mighty river that roared eerily as it frothed and rushed furiously, taking everything in its path — trees, train wreckage and bodies of men, women and infants. Perched on a platform on the bridge, the guard yelled, “Get out, your compartment has derailed.” In response, my aunt, in her overpowering voice, shouted: “follow me.” “I can’t,” I cried, clinging to her. Wrenching herself off, she bravely unlatched the door and lowered herself to the step of the compartment precariously. She then clambered along, holding on window to window and heading towards the rear of the train.
In an incredible act of heroism, we were walking back to Ariyalur station to seek help.
Prayer for deliverance
Turning my eye heavenward, I prayed for deliverance. Mustering my courage and leaving the precious parcels behind, I followed my aunt in utter terror along with other passengers who had vacated the eighth coach. I remembered the lines from Tennyson’s ‘The Charge of the Light Brigade’: “...into the valley of death rode...”
My heart pounded, my teeth chattered and I trembled with fear and cold as I gripped the window bars of the compartments. Loosening my grip would mean certain death. Using every ounce of my strength and with unswerving determination I struggled to save my life. With bruised palms I swayed across four compartments and eventually reached the last compartment in the reassuring presence of my aunt. She was a heroine.
Frightening hours
Being stranded there, waiting to be rescued with floodwaters on either side of the track, were the most frightening hours of my life, observing a scene a human eye could never have seen. It has haunted me all my life. The river bank was bathed in blood with human pulp, headless corpses, severed limbs, torsos and heaps of bodies wrecked of life’s esteem.
After an anxious wait of about four hours, the floodwaters gradually abated. Finally, as the river meekly meandered in its course and corpses bobbed in and out of water, we were rescued. A locomotive arrived to tow us safely back to the Ariyalur station.
There were triumphant screams mingled with sadness for those lost in one of the worst disasters that gripped a nation.
joycevernem@hotmail.com
( At the time of the accident, young Joyce Philomena was a clerk at the Golden Rock Railway School in Tiruchi, newly recruited by Southern Railway. Two years later, she was tranferred to the Divisional Railway Superintendent's office in Tiruchi. She married Clarence Vernem, a Guard with Southern Railway, and moved to Madurai where she continued to work for the Railways until opting for voluntary retirement from service in 1982.
The following year, Mr. Vernem passed away. She migrated to Australia in 1996 to join her two children and their families. She now lives in Melbourne (right). Upon being contacted by The Hindu on the phone on March 1 after she sent in her account to Open Page, Ms. Vernem (who provided the details given here of herself) said she remained terrified of trains for years. She later mustered the courage if only to watch passing trains, and would marvel at “how brave the passengers were” !
After suffering nightmares and sleep-walking disorders, she eventually overcame her dread, and often passed Ariyalur by train. A year shy of 80, she still occasionally takes the train in Australia, and lives a “very active life.”
As for her aunt, Eugene Gilles passed away in 1985.)

During the recent centenary celebration function of Pamban Bridge,Dr. Abdul kalam ,our Ex-President requested for a train in the name of Pamban Express to be operated from Rameswaram.But in the list of new trains announced in the recently submitted interim Railway Budget, Railway Minister was not even given any importance to the request made by DR.Abdul Kalam as no train is orginating from Rameswaram in his presented list as if Railway Board is not willing to memomarate the century old Pamban Bridge and also it is not belonging to Indian Railways solely with the view of step mother treatment to South.

In RM's list of new trains, no new train is given to start from Rameswaram. Already running trains from Rameswaram are having their own names.It was suggested by him for a new train only in the name of Pamban Express.So eligibility is not coming in the picture

Instead of cancelling this Garib Rath Express, they can make it to run directly from PDY to JP via YPR.More chances for getting better utilization since so many Rajastanis are living in PDY and students are studying in colleges situated in & around PDY.

On 29 January, the Maharashtra state cabinet cleared the Nagpur metro rail project, making it the third city in the state to have a metro rail, the mass public transport system. Initially the project was pegged at around Rs 10,000 crore but was scaled down to Rs9,007 crore when the detailed project report (DPR) was prepared. The cost was further reduced to Rs 8,680 crore after union minister of urban development (MoUD) asked for a revised DPR.  
With the cabinet clearance in place, the proposal will now be sent to union ministry of urban transport for clearance after which the execution will start. The metro project in Pune is also under consideration of the union ministry.

state government cleared the project with only 5 per cent contribution of Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) and Nagpur Improvement Trust (NIT). The state finance ministry had demanded 10% contribution from the two civic agencies. While NIT refused, NMC asked state government for a long term interest-free loan from state government for funding the extra contribution.  
NIT has been empowered by the cabinet to pursue the project with MoUD under Metro Railway (Construction of Works) Act, 1978. The formation of special purpose vehicle (SPV) for execution and operation of the project - Nagpur Metro Railway Corporation Ltd (NMRCL) has been cleared. Until NMRCL becomes functional, NIT will remain the nodal agency of the project.

For that,only solution is arleast in future,most of the newly proposed trains are to be started from Kanyakumari,Toothukkudi,Rameswaram,Tirunelveli,Madurai etc.Then only South Tamilnadu will get equal rights and it will pave the way for the balanced railway network for the passengers and other freight movement of entire Tamilnadu state. Apart from that,Tamilnadu state's main trunk route Madras- kanyakumari needs to be doubled at the earliest from the present single line. In the last 4,5 decades,why none of our elected MPS collectively raised their voice in the parliament like keralites for this doubling is really a wonder.Also,State government should help the railways by speeding up the pending land aquisition cases,alloting suffient quarries,making flyovers on level crossings etc.Unless otherwise these are all not met,expecting more trains and better services/connectivity will be the day dreams only.

In addition to the list mentioned by you I suggest further Cities/Towns such as Marthandam,Shenkottai,Rajapalayam,Sivakasi,Pollachi,Nagapattinam,Karaikkal,Pondicherry,Tiruppur,Coimbatore,Hosur,Katpadi ,Gummidipoondi and Tiruthani to Start and Terminate Trains.
So necessary PIT LINE have to be provided. The Concerned CITY CORPORATION / Municipality should provide necessary Free Land along the Railway Track near the Station premises in consultation with the District Authority.Morever respective MPs should contribute MP DEVELOPMENT FUND for the Pit Line Project.
Moreover I Personally suggest that 20 % part of the Land in (near by Railway Track)

more...
the unused Pond / KANMOI / Pool / Reservoir may be utilized for providing the Pit Line and the balance 80% of the Pond/Kanmoi/Pool/Reservoir should be deepened for 1 to 2 meter with protective Wall and so as the existing water carrying capacity of these reservoir s are not decreased.
In Tamilnadu so many Pond/Reservoir have been converted as New Bus Stand by the Cities/Towns. Only One example* Salem City New Bus Stand *.
So i suggest Only 2 Pit Line site ,* for Kovilpatti in Thoothukkudi District and Sivakasi in Virudhunagar District*.
In both towns on the Railway Track near by Reservoir s 20 % of the Land have to be utilized for the Pit Line Project and the balance 80 % of the reservoir should be deepened by 1 to 2 meter.Concerned MPs should be contribute MP DEVELOPMENT FUND for the Pit Line Project for Starting and Terminating Passenger, Express and SF Trains with in Tamilnadu and Long Distance Trains to other States.

For that,only solution is arleast in future,most of the newly proposed trains are to be started from Kanyakumari,Toothukkudi,Rameswaram,Tirunelveli,Madurai etc.Then only South Tamilnadu will get equal rights and it will pave the way for the balanced railway network for the passengers and other freight movement of entire Tamilnadu state. Apart from that,Tamilnadu state's main trunk route Madras- kanyakumari needs to be doubled at the earliest from the present single line. In the last 4,5 decades,why none of our elected MPS collectively raised their voice in the parliament for this doubling is really a wonder.Also, State government should help the railways by speeding up the pending land aquisition cases,alloting suffient quarries,making flyovers on level crossings etc.Unless otherwise these are all not met,expecting more trains and better services/connectivity will be the day dreams only.

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
