News about MAJN - RMM regularly comes in News ,but nothing happening.
ERS-RMM is almost confirmed as Tri-Weekly Regular ;heard that SR GM has approved it.
No idea abt PTJ-POY .

Wow.. Wonderful.. No words.. D 400 cr spent for GC should hv been used for sm other useful cause as no regular trains from PGT even after 1 year of PGT-POY GC.. I assume, similar would be fate of CBE-POY, no regular train would or rather should run for a yr.. If nt, den it's a clear apathy & discrimination towards Palakkad & Kerala..
Anywys nw we r used to dis suffering dis injustice.. Kudos SR..

That wont be the case with Ptj-Poy bcz the pressure from CBE side will be more.
I think You would know why the amritha extention to MDU was denied and why Mas-Plni which comes till poy is not allowed to be extended .
So The passenger associations there is more stronger and will certainly exert more pressure on railways.So i dont think its fate would be same as Pgtn-Poy.But still would have to wait some time.

AFAIK 06737 AFK - ERN - PVRD was having good occupancy, especially post ERN. Wish they retained that trip which was beneficial to regular commuters. Even 06732 PVRD- ERN - AFK trip in the morning could've been retained.

True, but this line is so neglected that even after so many days of CRS inspection completion, there is no news of any new trains. Wonder even if PTJ-POY will get more than a couple of passengers and an ICE.

from today onward Amrita express and the special passenger trains will not run between PGNT and POY, SR is cancelling this due to less revenue.

Yes.. Sajin..But Manorama reported that the initial TT had LR at QLN, ERS, and SRR. Seems like the board rejected the LR at ERS and SRR for the wastage of time and blockage and suggested via ERN and BPZA (SRR bypass).. Let's see..

It would have been really a waste of time had it gone to SRR
