I am not very sure. Nut there used to be a coach care centre near the station. Please visit IRFCA site, where Mr. Jimmy had posted many photos of Cochin Harbour Terminus , before and after it got closed in 2004.

there has been varied media reports about it. Some report that the navy had given permission, but then the brigde could not support electrification. Some say the e bridge so damaged so the permission "lapsed" others report the navy had never granted permission because it is too close to the landing funnel

AFAIK, Navy has is yet to permit electrification of ERS - CHTS section, citing that the rail line falls in their 'landing funnel'.
Incidentally, ERS - SRR line with heavy traffic density passes a much bigger & busier civil, international airport (CIAL) located at Nedumbasserry(between AWY & AFK). Here the railway line got electrified even before CIAL was operational, I guess!!
Same is the case with Chennai Airport too; isn't it located close to MS - TBM electrified railway line?
what I know, the Air Force Station at Allahabad too lies in close proximity to a busy railway line connecting ALD & NDLS.
Strangely, Navy operates more of helicopters and Dornier type aircrafts from this base, which need short runways/vertical take off. Rarely do bigger aircrafts (like Boeings) carrying VVIPs land here. Fail to understand why they're keen on preventing electrification of railway line to CHTS.

This Train has to be extended to Palakkad Town. Only then the real benefit of running a MEMU rake would be gained. With a MEMU rake the delay for loco reversal can be avoided at Palghat Junction, and Palakkad Town is the actual railway station situated in the city centre.
