The Pollachi - Palakkad Town BG line has reached near Robinson Road in Palakkad. It's just one kilometre stretch of rail laying work needed. Hope SR and CRS clear the formalities soon.. It's 8 years I saw an ALCO chugging here..

PGT-PGTN is BG from long time.. As far as from my memories it was BG+MG..
And in PGT, the old MG station(PF 1A) has rebuilt for 21 coaches, which will make no of PF to 5. Guess it will be commisioned along with PGTN-pollachi section.
Yes, rake reversal will be required for KR trains, if any. It wont be issue

As per today's Mathrubhumi News Report, PGTN-POY line is getting ready to be opened in March this year.
This report also says, the freight trains from MAQ towards TN and MDU and the passenger trains towards Mumbai from Central and Southern Tamil Nadu will be re-routed through this new line, towards MAQ and via Konkan Railway, which could result in reduction in distance and travel time.

Even this article says that the remaining portion will be commissioned in March-2015. Lets hope that it happens.
Special trains will be operated on the newly laid broad gauge railway track in Pollachi - Palani section from Friday. Pollachi MP C. Mahendran will flag off the first train that will leave Pollachi station at 6.15 a.m.
Railway sources said that there would be a grand function when rail service resumed in a full-fledged manner on the Dindigul - Palakkad stretch. A portion of the work that had to be completed on the Palani to Palakkad section would be completed before the end of March, 2015, sources added.

In the recent meetings with MP's from Kerala the railway minister Sadananda Gowda has said that the Palakkad-Pollachi broad gaugeline would be completed by March 2015 (within the next 7 months).
Lets hope that the timeline is met which would enable some good movement by passenger and express trains.

A new PGT-MS train via POY, PNI, TPJ can be started. Could be named as Mallampuzha Exp. This will satisfy long pending demand of an exclusive PGT-MS train besides connecting POY, UDT to their capital and can connect PGT with South Chennai (IT corridor)

Few weeks back when I was at Palakkad, I saw sleepers being laid at PGTN outer. The gate of first level crossing just after PGTN towards POY has been closed blocking the road so that GC work can take place.

Who will win the race PRS or IRCTC
****************************
Mission was to book a return ticket from PGT to MAS. Unlike last week where i had to take a bus... Just reaching home at 5AM this morning went into a short hibernation.. The Alarm promptly rang at 7.10 AM and it was set in order to venture the PRS booking.. Thats when the idea struck.. I asked my brother to carry his laptop along with me to the PRS at PGTN.. Well there was a serpentine queue which had formed already for both the counters. So i occupied one of the queues and my brother was with the laptop.. Sharp at 8 AM the PRS started functioning however our site got into hibernation now.. "service unavailable" was frequenting...the queue was moving simultaneously..
...
Read more...
I saw that the movement of the other queue was pretty slower than ours and thanked lady luck... By then my bro was frustrated with IRCTC. i had taught him TVC-GHY was filling up fast, followed by 16042. The PGT quota in 16042 is 16 in SL and 6 in 3A which got emptied in no time.. so i asked him to check the position from TCR for this train which had higher quota.. 12602 was fast filling.. 12624 tickets were filling faster than the MPS of this train... IRCTC was still constipated and was taking every step so very slowly.. by now i had traversed halfway through from where i was... 3rd from the counter now and my bro shouted.. all train filled up except for 12686 13 in SL , 4 in 3A , 7 in 2A was the status then.. i got to the counter and the lady said all SL/3A CK are running in WL and my bro hinted that 12686 had 3 more in 2A.. so i requested the clerk in 12686 2A and she hurriedly typed the details and told me 1 ticket available and i grabbed on to it. She hurriedly typed my details and the ticket was booked at 8.52 AM.. IRCTC Was still reluctant to go beyond the PLAN MY TRAVEL Screen. Thanking god and my luck was walking out of PGTN having a quick look at the ticket detail.. Ha ha the lady made a mistake while typing my ID details.. she typed E instead of F.. so i went back to the counter and told her the ID No mentioned was wrong and instead of F you have typed E.. she said dont worry thats fine tell the TTE that its just a tail that has grown to the F.. under pressure i appreciated her sense of humour and i headed back home with the happiness of procuring the last available confirmed ticket... PRS wins yet again...
