Train over water on one of the dangerous sea bridge.
Pamban bridge Rameshwaram Tamilnadu completed 100 years.It was awesome experience to see train on this bridge.Speed is restricted to 10-15kmph.
One can visit this bridge by taking Auto from Temple/station.its approximately 10km from Temple.They charge 350-400Rs to and fro but you can bargain.

I do not know SA will be useful Upto CBE the patronage will be very good. The earlier proposal for the MTP train is better. Also if it is upto SA why Departure time at SA is given. Alternately this can be made upto TPJ via ED KRR.

In 12677/12678 SBC-ERS Intercity Express for a very long time an AC Chair car runs as CE1. Why can't they make it as regular. What happens now is that those who are not aware of this do not book in the train when they see a long waiting list. This leads to wrong information given to the public

Was wondering why most rake compositions have AC coaches somewhere in the middle... surrounded by SL and/or GEN compartments. Is there a set of rules/ guidelines in terms of rake composition from IR?

From whatever I have seen and travelled the AC compartments are never in the middle. They are always immediately behind the General Compartments at either end. In fact my complaint is that when we travel by AC compartment we have to walk a very long distance to reach the entry or exit of platform.

Most of the trains leaving howrah have AC coaches in the rear. Corromandel and Chennai howrah-mail have AC coaches in the rear when they leave chennai or howrah, but when they reach destination it is in the front

Easily you can board or alight. There is no great rush. I had travelled from Pne to Thane twice. In fact the actual stoppage is also more than one minute

Why no one is interested in Imaginary train in Mumbai - Bangalore route?
Can we propose one like this?
LTT - 0900; PUNE 1230; MRJ 1730; UBL 2230; YPR 0545.
Return trip YPR 0900; UBL 1615; MRJ 2115; PUNE 0215; LTT 0545.
My logic goes like this : LTT-UBL is proposed already to start at 0900 as a daily train. So slot is available at LTT-Pune stretch. From Pune, in 10 hours, SF can reach UBL (follows KSK) and from there, it can overtake KSK or KSK can be speeded up to reach at 0545 and this SF can reach by 0620 (KSK timings).
Return
...
Read more...
trip : Slot available from YPR to UBL. From UBL, NZM Slot upto MRJ and speeded up to reach LTT by early morning.
