understood Rake utilization. But the main important part is Seating Reservation
Because of RSA with Night train, cholan badly hits with SL coaches.

SR will think only about revenue. They know people will go for sleeper if 2s is full.
There are less chance to get 2s coaches for Cholan. Only possibility is, make more sleeper coaches to 2s.

I think the reason wud be pf availability. At Tambaram, only Pf 1 n 2 are electrified while others r not. Mannai might be arriving either in non electrified PF.

Mannai came in the PF in tbm where boatmail and chendur arrived.. I checked Last week. Initially Mannai not had stoppage at Villupuram.
might be mannai don't want to wait for loco change..(as it will take some time).
It is most premier train in point of politicials..

Now CGL EMU trains wait for more time to get pfs at tbm (in both ways, daily am facing this )

Is it any chance there, to increase the CGL EMU service, there is lot of crowd in the CGL EMU trains compare to TBM MSB train. Why SR not giving more service for CGL EMU , eventhough lot of slots available.
Ex: morning after 9.25, next train is at 10.20 and after that 11.20am only..
In between i haven't see much exp. trains in this line (chendur and pallavan only there). Easily SR can introduce 2 to 3 EMUs in that slot.

I commute through this station every month, which i feel worser to board the train every time. TBM is second largest station next to chennai egmore (MAS) for the trains going south TN.
But, it is lacking in facilities like Electronic coach position display(not even in 1/9 platform), Live dep./arr display inside the station. Which causes even a youngster like me to suffer to board the train.
If not atleast inc. the halt time from 1 to 2/3 min. that too sufficient for trains which leaving chennai.
And

the MTC buses plying through this route were less than 5 nos in the early morning time when, most trains bound chennai from south would cross TBM. Which insists me to travel in auto, which costs more than half of the train fare.
