I don't think it is banking. They both are going in same direction towards TCR. The Express is coming from PGT side towards TCR. The WAG9 is coming from SRR side towards TCR. Trains from SRR side will cross the bridge in opposite track and then change to left side track. So WAG9 will just reach the end of the bridge and stop for signal for track switch till the Express clears the route. This is a common seen in this location.

Re# 2135463-41            Tags   Past Edits
Agree. But my question was why it came to MAS PF. Can these kind of full set of new rakes directly start from Villivakkam or from BBQ yard to respective division? Is it mandate that it should come to MAS PF and then go to respective divisions.

Not necessary that it should come to PF. Probably officials wanted to inspect the rake.

Might be they would have thought to run it as special to destination. Then dropped the plan due to recent issue happened at MAS.
Or it can be, since there was issues going around chennai, they moved rake to MAS, so that coaches are not damaged. Usually, finished rakes are kept in VLK before going to its destination, which is vulnerable spot.
I feel mostly second might be the reason.

Even if it goes via chennai the difference should not be more then 60 mins as difference is hardly 50km. When duronto does HWH blore in 29 hrs this humsafar should do it in 30 hrs via chennai as travellers are paying 15% as base fare and flexi fares for 50% seats. This is not an exception as other HS are also taking more time then premium trains in that routes.
