Palakkad-Pollachi line gauge conversion over.The much-awaited gauge conversion between Palakkad and Pollachi to enhance rail connectivity between north Kerala and pilgrim centres such as Rameswaram, Erwadi, Madurai, and Palani in Southern Tamil Nadu is finally turning into a reality with the Railways preparing to conduct a trial run in three weeks’ time.
Railway officials said almost all work on the gauge conversion was over and just finishing touches were remaining. Of the 54-km stretch, 22 km are in Tamil Nadu.

The metre-gauge line between Pollachi and Palakkad was closed down in 2008 with an assurance that it would be reopened in 16 months as a broad gauge.

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

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.
