Call for trains to run on new line
The Mysore Grahakara Parishat (MGP) in association with the Tuticorin Railway Users’ Association has written to the railway authorities to run 16235/16236 Mysuru-Tuticorin Express on the new railway line connecting Salem with Karur via Namakkal.
The new line has recently become operational which saves about an hour and a half of running time, according to MGP.

trains — 16231/16232 and 16235/16236 — run from Mysuru to Tuticorin (Thoothukudi) in southern Tamil Nadu via Bengaluru, Salem, Erode and Karur.
“If this train runs on the new line, this would not only save time but also connect the towns of Rasipuram (the ancestral home of eminent writer R.K. Narayan and renowned cartoonist R.K. Laxman), Namakkal and Mohanur to Mysuru,” a press release from MGP said here.
The other train 16231/16232 can be run on the old route for people going to Erode, the release said.

It takes a very longer duration while returning from NC/ Nagercoil. Will it be speeded up in the long run after completion of electrification so as to reach destination sbc/bangalore early.

It was reported that Balaji exp won't touch TPTY. So two LR and 20 kms is avoided. But there is no news on time change.

As there is heavy rush for madurai mumbai lokamanya tilak express more coaches may be added or if possible the train may be run biweekly or triweekly to help passengers going to mumabi/coming to madurai.

I happened to travel in lokmanya tilak express from madurai to renigunta. Thogh the coaches looked very old the travel was very comfortable in second class berths with practically no jolts and shaking from side to side. I could sleep well that night. In the return direction I travelled by III ac in pandian express a prestigious train. unfortunate the travel was troublesome with heavy jolting/shaking from side to side with the cushion in the berth was bucket shaped and breaking the joints in the back. I preferred III ac because of my earlier travail/difficulty while travelling in II class berth in pandian. Even then the result was the same for both the classes. Are the rakes of pandian express are very old and outlived its life. Or the rakes of central railways far more than southern railways. Why...

not such inconvenient facilities are not detected and set right.

the old route is congested and travel time is more. so what is the purpose of going on a roundabout long way once the karur salem is cleared. will it not save time and fuel for IR.

Konkan Route makes a lot of difference in the distance of Netravati express and Mumbai Cape Express.
So does it mean that Cape Express should run via Konkan?
And also in Kerala ALLP route is more shorter than KTYM. so u mean to say alll trains need to run via ALLP?
