This train must be provided stoppage at kuppam (KPN).. as the passengers of Kuppam by applying full efforts to the make the train to stop by approaching the railway autorities (DRM) ,though the file keep on pending & not moving further forward .. There is no direct day train with 2S class from tirupathi to kuppam where the journey time is hardly 4 hours only. Piligrims travelling from tirupathi to Kuppam its useful. Dont Know why the SWR railway authorities not considering the same ............

this train will end up being a white elephant for sure. They should introduce it via VSKP or extend it

It would be better if it runs from Chittoor or TPTY , so that it covers some more places in AP than starting from BZA

As per the SWR website information the train 56214 /56213 has removed one General Second class from its existing coach formation 3rd July 2014 onwards Which is truely un fair towards the general public who use to travel from South places to tirupati for Lord Venkateswara Dharsan .. The train which runs full crowded and fully uitlized by the people ..Due to removal of General Second class coach which creates congestion to public ... please discuss on this issue.. ...
This removal of the Coach from this train is happened, to provide one additional AC-3 Tier for the train 16227/16228 Banglore-Talaguppa Train ..
the railway authorities uses the same coach formation of 56213 train along with one First class Cum AC-3 tier which is adding at Banglore station for the train 16227/28 ... similarly why cant they maintain /provide General second Class for the train 56213 from banglore to tirupati...

I totally agree as this is train is always packed right from Chamarajanagar. Some of my relatives live in Nanjangud (NTW) and they say that many travel back to Chamarajanagar from NTW for onward journey to Bangalore and further to take a comfortable seat as it is difficult to get a seat even in NTW. I had a chance to travel from NTW in this train to Bangalore on a Sunday and had to stand right from NTW to Bangalore Cant.. I was hoping to get a seat atleast in Mysore but no such luck.....

i use to travel in this train from tirupati-Kuppam occationally .. due to which i know that the general second calss coaches geting seat is difficult... but sorry i dont know the occupation of train beyond the Banlgore section towards MYS/ Chamaraj Nagar ... As per your reply its also useful between SBC-MYS/extend portion also.. then they must maintain same existing or new general Second class or seepler class also to this train instead of removal the coach..

Its (based on SBC-KCVL Exp patronage at Kuppam) ir-revelant for the analysis of the train SBC-TPTY-SBC ICE stoppage at Kuppam(KPN). Again we/ people /commuters of Kuppam has to meet the next higher authority . Dont know why railway authority is not supporting for the stoppage at KPN for this ICE train day time express. Dont know which Rule / Policy of SWR / indainrailways is binding their hands , such that not to move forward on the request of Stoppage of the train at kuppam.

Just saw the Breaking news on ETV2...Ministry of Railways has identified the status of KRNT as upgraded to a City from Town. Which would make more number of trains stop if not at present and increase in halt time for already halting trains.

YES IT MAY BE TRUE... KSK on its journey to NZM touches many cities but no stoppage has given for it.. so i think Raj may definitely be given stoppage at Kurnool
