Chief minister Raghubar Das on Sunday said the Hatia-Ernakulum Express between Jharkhand and Kerala will be made operational within a week.
Das, who was in Hatia railway station to flag off a special train carrying tribal performers to New Delhi for the national tribal festival, said he had written to the railway ministry requesting the train's flag off within the ongoing week.
TOI had on Friday reported that the Hatia-Ernakulum Express, which was personally requisitioned by Das to railway minister Suresh Prabhu, was waiting for the CM's dates to be inaugurated. The
train is scheduled to depart for Ernakulum every Thursday.

Got a chance to travel by this train from YPR to CBE on 9/10/16, and here is the report:
Reached YPR at 19:30 hrs , just then YPR-HWH express was departing from PF#6 and the display board showed YPR-Cannanore as PF#2 and MYS-Solapur Golgumbaz as PF#3, while YPR-Solapur was standing in PF#1.
There were two TVs at PF#6 Entrance, they were displaying Live arrival status of incoming trains by obtaining data from NTES.
around 20:00 hrs, our train was allotted PF#3, and at around 20:10 hrs, reached PF#3, the rake was just then being shunted in...
At around 20:10 hrs, KSK was shunted in to PF#6
At around 20:15, the King (22691) passed through PF2 hauled by KJM WDP-4B at a decent speed, later I went and boarded my coach and took my SLB...
At sharp 9PM, we started with a WDM-3D of KJM shed. The display board in my coach was not functional. At around 9:15PM, paid Rs.25 and took bedroll set. Rchd BAND around 21:30 hrs and after that, went off to sleep..
Woke up at around 01:10 AM, train was already in SA, seemed like a good run. But we left only at 01:40AM and in the 30 min halt, 12601 and 22639 overtook us as they had an earlier arrival time @ CBE...
After that, slept only to momentarily wake up @ ED @ 02:50, after that woke up only near Irugur, train was blasting, and we reached CBE Pf#1 at 04:23 AM, quite a decent run... Looks like, I was the only person who got down at CBE. At 04:25AM, the train departed CBE as announcements went for 12671 to arrive on PF#3 and TVC-MAS Super AC to arrive on PF#6...
Thanks for reading...Comments welcome.

Yes. You are correct. Probably, there could be a train departing at 21:30/21:45 SBC, CBE at 04:45 or 05 Am and ERS at around 08:30 or 08:45. This train could be introduced on fridays from SBC

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.
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.

Aug 11 2016 (16:58)   Kerala to get its first double-decker train soon - Times of India

For Better Managed Indian Railways~   948 news posts
Entry# 1959144   News Entry# 276895         Tags   Past Edits
KOCHI: The railways is all set to introduce the first ever double-decker superfast express (Uday) train service connecting Kerala.
Sources from the Southern railway told TOI that the new double-decker train service connecting Chennai to Thiruvananthapuram twice a week, will be announced along with the new railway timetable to be released in October.
"Chennai-Thiruvananthapuram stretch is one of the busiest stretches in South India. On all trains, there are scores of passengers on waiting list. Introduction of a double decker Uday train, will not only double up the chances of reserved tickets for
passengers, but would bring in additional revenue for the railways," said a senior officer from the Southern Railway.
If authorities are to be believed, the Thiruvananthapuram-Chennai Uday service will begin by 7 pm and will reach Chennai in 14 to 15 hours. The Chennai-Thiruvananthapuram service will also be overnight. At present, trains in this stretch take 15 to 17 hours to cover the same distance.
It will be a fully-air-conditioned chair car train, with 10 or 11 coaches. Each coach can accommodate 120 persons. The Uday train would run approximately at a speed of 110 kilometres per hour and the fares would also be reasonable.

Cool down Kid.. Nee... Than.. athokkai veno.. I never pointed anybody personal. Didi I ?. I blamed on SR. Expecting same from you.what u mean by unwanted stops. The stops are always making better patronage (MVLK,CGNR,TVLA,CGY & KTYM)..rest all stops, I can agree. Even if you consider the trains which has stop on CGNR & KTYM also given more slack time.
