വൈകിട്ടും സ്ഥിതി വ്യത്യസ്തമല്ല. അഞ്ചിനു വേണാട് പോയി കഴിഞ്ഞാൽ പിന്നീടു രാത്രി 11.35നാണ് കോട്ടയം വഴി അടുത്ത പ്രതിദിന എക്സ്പ്രസ്. പുതിയ ട്രെയിൻ രാവിലെ 9.45നും മടക്ക യാത്രയിൽ രാത്രി 7.10നും എറണാകുളത്ത് എത്തുമെന്നാണു സൂചന. സമയക്രമം സംബന്ധിച്ചു അന്തിമ തീരുമാനം വൈകാതെയുണ്ടാകും. ഇക്കാര്യത്തിൽ റെയിൽവേ ബോർഡ് ഉദ്യോഗസ്ഥരുമായി ചൊവ്വാഴ്ച ചർച്ച നടത്തുമെന്നു എംപി അറിയിച്ചു. കൊല്ലം – എറണാകുളം ജംക്‌ഷൻ, ഷൊർണൂർ വഴിയാണു സർവീസ് നിർദേശിച്ചതെങ്കിലും മൂന്നു സ്ഥലങ്ങളിലും

എഞ്ചിൻ മാറ്റുന്നതു പ്രായോഗികമല്ലെന്നാണു റെയിൽവേ നിലപാട്. ഷൊ‍ർണൂർ ഒഴിവാക്കുകയും എറണാകുളം ജംക്‌ഷനു പകരം എറണാകുളം ടൗണിൽ നിർത്തുകയും ചെയ്താൽ ഒരു മണിക്കൂറോളം സമയം ലാഭിക്കാൻ കഴിയുമെന്നും അധികൃതർ ചൂണ്ടിക്കാട്ടുന്നു.
ട്രെയിനിനു പാലരുവി എക്സ്പ്രസ് എന്നു പേരു നൽകണമെന്നു റെയിൽവേ ബോർഡിനോട് ആവശ്യപ്പെട്ടിട്ടുണ്ടെന്നു കൊടിക്കുന്നിൽ പറഞ്ഞു. പുനലൂരിൽനിന്നു ബെംഗളൂരു വഴി ഹൈദരാബാദിലേക്കു പുതിയ സർവീസ് ആരംഭിക്കാനും അങ്കമാലി - എരുമേലി ശബരി പാത എരുമേലിയിൽനിന്നു പുനലൂരേക്കു നീട്ടാനും ആവശ്യപ്പെട്ടിട്ടുണ്ടെന്നും എംപി അറിയിച്ചു. ശബരി എക്സ്പ്രസ് ഹൈദരാബാദിലെത്താൻ 30 മണിക്കൂർ എടുക്കുമ്പോൾ ബെംഗളൂരു വഴി ഹൈദരാബാദിലെത്താൻ 26 മണിക്കൂർ മതിയാകും. അതേസമയം കൊച്ചി നിവാസികൾ ഏറെക്കാലമായി ആവശ്യപ്പെടുന്ന എറണാകുളം - രാമേശ്വരം, സേലം ട്രെയിനുകളുടെ കാര്യത്തിൽ ഇപ്പോഴും തീരുമാനമില്ല.
രാവിലെ 10ന് മുൻപായി കോയമ്പത്തൂരിലെത്താൻ ട്രെയിൻ വേണമെന്ന ആവശ്യവും പരിഗണിച്ചിട്ടില്ല. ഏറെ മുറവിളികൾക്കു ശേഷം ആരംഭിച്ച വേളാങ്കണി സർവീസാകട്ടെ തീർഥാടകർക്കു ഉപകാരമില്ലാത്ത വ്യാഴാഴ്ചകളിലാണു സർവീസ് നടത്തുന്നത്. ഈ സർവീസും ഇപ്പോൾ നിലച്ച മട്ടാണ്. ഈ ട്രെയിൻ പ്രതിദിനമാക്കുകയോ വെളളിയാഴ്ച കേരളത്തിൽനിന്നു പുറപ്പെടുന്ന തരത്തിൽ പുനഃക്രമീകരിക്കുകയോ വേണമെന്നാണു ആവശ്യം. റേക്കില്ലെന്ന കാരണം പറഞ്ഞു കേരളത്തിനു ട്രെയിൻ നിഷേധിക്കുന്ന റെയിൽവേ ഈ വർഷം 18 പുതിയ ട്രെയിനുകളാണു വിവിധ ഭാഗങ്ങളിൽ അനുവദിച്ചത്. പാലക്കാട്–പുനലൂർ ട്രെയിനിനു ജനുവരി അവസാനത്തോടെ ഉത്തരേന്ത്യയിൽനിന്നു റേക്ക് എത്തുമെന്നാണു സൂചന.

అందాలతో పాటు మంచు ముసుగులో తడిసే ప్రకృతి అందాలను చూడాలని ఎంతోమంది ఉత్సాహంగా వస్తారు. అరకు వచ్చేవారిలో నూటికి 90 మంది రైలులో రావాలనే కోరుకుంటారు. రైలు ప్రయాణం పంచే అనుభూతి అలాంటిది మరి. కానీ ఈ మార్గంలో కేవలం విశాఖపట్నం-కిరండూల్‌ పాసింజర్‌ మాత్రమే తిరుగుతుంది. దీంతో ఈ రైలు సంవత్సరం పొడవునా కిటకిటలాడుతూనే ఉంటుంది. ఇందులో ఒక స్లీపర్‌, ద్వితీయ ఏసీతోపాటు సీటింగ్‌ బోగీలకు రిజర్వేషన్‌ సదుపాయం అందుబాటులో ఉంటుంది. సీజన్‌ ప్రారంభానికి ముందుగానే ఈ బోగీల్లోని సీట్లు మొత్తం భర్తీ అయిపోయాయి. నెలక్రితమే చాంతాడంత నిరీక్షణ జాబితా కూడా నిండిపోయి రిగ్రెట్‌ వచ్చేసింది. ఆరు వరకు జనరల్‌ బోగీలు ఉన్నా వాటిలో కాలుమోపే సందు కూడా ఉండదు. దీంతో ప్రయాణికులు తీవ్ర నిరాశ చెందడమే కాక ఇబ్బంది పడుతున్నారు.
ప్రత్యేక రైలు నడిచినా...
ప్రయాణికుల రద్దీని దృష్టిలో ఉంచుకుని వారాంతమైన శని, ఆదివారాల్లో తూర్పు కోస్తా రైల్వే అధికారులు ప్రత్యేక పాసింజర్‌ రైలు ఏర్పాటు చేశారు. గత రెండువారాంతాల్లో పూర్తి జనరల్‌ బోగీలతో 08511/12 నెంబరు పేరిట ప్రత్యేక రైలు నడిపారు. ఉదయం 6.45 గంటలకు కిరండూల్‌ బయలుదేరుతుంది. దీని తర్వాత గంట వ్యవధిలో 8 గంటలకు ప్రత్యేక రైలు బయలుదేరింది. ఈ రైలులో అన్నీ రిజర్వేషన్‌ లేని జనరల్‌ బోగీలే కావడంతో దీని సమాచారం ఐర్‌సీటీసీ వెబ్‌సైట్‌లో గానీ, రైల్వే రిజర్వేషన్‌ కౌంటర్లలో గానీ కనిపించ లేదు. విశాఖ వచ్చిన వారికి మాత్రమే ప్రత్యేక రైలు ఉందనే విషయం తెలసింది. అరకు వచ్చే ప్రయాణికుల్లో చాలామంది ముందస్తు రిజర్వేషన్‌ చేయించుకుని వచ్చేవారే. వీరందరికీ ప్రత్యేక రైలు గురించి తెలియకపోవడంతో కిరండూల్‌ పాసింజర్‌లోనే ఇరుక్కుని వెళ్లారు. ఈ ఆదివారం కిరండూల్‌ పాసింజర్‌లో ఒక్కో బోగీలో 100 మందికి పైగా ప్రయాణించగా.. తొమ్మిది బోగీలున్న ప్రత్యేక రైలు మొత్తంమీద 150 మంది కూడా రాలేదు. ప్రచారం చేయకుండా.. వెబ్‌సైట్‌లో సమాచారం లేకుండా నడిపే రైలు ఏ విధంగా ప్రయాణికులను ఆకట్టుకుంటుందని పలువురు ప్రశ్నిస్తున్నారు.
తిరుగు ప్రయాణంలోనూ అంతే
అరకు నుంచి తిరిగి విశాఖ బయలుదేరే పాసింజరు మధ్యాహ్నం 12.45 గంటలకు బయలుదేరి విశాఖకు సాయంత్రం 4.20 గంటలకు చేరుకుంటోంది. మధ్యాహ్నానికే రైలు బయలుదేరి పోవడంతో పర్యటకులెవరూ ఇందులో ప్రయాణించడానికి ఇష్టపడటం లేదు. సాధారణంగా అరకు వచ్చినవారు సాయంత్రం 4 నుంచి 6 గంటల నడుమ తిరిగి బయలుదేరుతారు. ఈ సమయంలో బయల్దేరితే రాత్రి 8 నుంచి 9 గంటల నడుమ విశాఖ చేరుకోవచ్చు. సాయంత్రం 3 గంటలకు అరకు నుంచి ప్రత్యేక రైలుని విశాఖకి క్రమం తప్పకుండా నడిపితే పర్యటకులకు అనువుగా ఉంటుందని పలువురు పేర్కొంటున్నారు. కానీ తూకో రైల్వే అధికారులేమో ఈ విషయం ఏ మాత్రం పట్టించుకోలేదు. గతంలోనూ ప్రత్యేక రైలు నడిపినప్పుడు పెద్దగా ఆదరణ రాలేదని వాల్తేరు డివిజనల్‌ రైల్వే మేనేజర్‌ అరకు పర్యటనకు వచ్చినప్పుడు పేర్కొన్నారు. ఆనాటి తప్పులను ఏ మాత్రం సవరించకుండా తిరిగి అదే వేళల్లో రైలు నడిపి ఇప్పుడూ ప్రయాణికుల ఆదరణ లేదని అంటున్నారు. రైల్వే అధికారులు పర్యటక సీజన్‌మొత్తం అన్ని రోజులు క్రమం తప్పకుండా అరకు వరకు ప్రత్యేక రైలుని నడపడంతోపాటు రిజర్వేషన్‌ సదుపాయం కల్పిస్తే పర్యటకులు, స్థానికులకు గుర్తుండే అవకాశం ఉంటుందని ప్రయాణికులు పేర్కొంటున్నారు.

may be recalled that following persistent demand from the travelling public of the western region, the Southern Railways introduced this train on a temporary basis from mid-September.
The Railways scheduled this train for five days a week till October 14. Later, it extended the train till November-end.
Citing poor response, the Southern Railway announced the cancellation of this train by November-end. With various traders’ bodies and other organisations demanding the extension of this train in connection with the Christmas holidays, the Railways extended the train till December-end with reduced frequency of operation – twice a week.
The Railways once again conceded to the demand of the public by extending the train for one more month taking into consideration the forthcoming Pongal festival season.
