Punalur Palakkad Express to run from March Next Week onwards Says Kudikunel Suresh MP. He claims that the Time Table committee during their yearly meeting at Kolkata has given the final nod for the same. He informed that the inauguration is planned via Video Conferencing by Mr.Suresh Prabhu the coming week and also is trying to get 2 additional sleeper coaches. I guess the rest would be Second Sitting coaches with AC Chair Car. Hopefully, there won't be any hurdles. Fingers crossed.

I think since its a single rake, it doesn't require an RSA with primary maintenance at KCVL/ERS. Just like Venad exp without any RSA having maintenance at TVC. I may be wrong.

Then nobody would take this train to travel to TCR/PGT from ERS/ERN, because 12678 , leaving ERS at 09.10, reaches PGT at 11.45.

Venad express since it has PM at TVC, it need not require RSA and runs as dedicated train. If this train has to go to ERS or KCVL. For sure, they will introduce a PUU-ERS/KCVL Passenger. SR won't run empty rake express for such a long distance. Or they might give RSA with current running PUU trains like PUU-CAPE or PUU-QLN

True..but i believe this train would be a normal express having more unreserved sitting coaches with more stops rather than ERS SBC Intercity with more reserved sitting coaches and lesser stops. So, there should be decent patronage. Also more slack time might have been added for the PUU PGT Exp. Maybe it could reach much earlier.Also, not sure whether it would skip SRR or not.

They have started manufacturing Jan ChairCars again; spotted two new coaches (# SR WGSCZJ 16616 & 16617) in 12076/75 TVC CLT TVC JanSatabdi Express today. Coaches have bio-toilets & has only 103 seats, in comparison to older coaches having capacity of 106.
Really glad to note that Jan Chaircars are back in production; still wonder why the reduction in number of seats.

This train has nothing to do with Konkan Railways. It's an SWR train. Coconut trees are famous in Goa. Coconut is a very important ingredient in Goan curries and many other dishes too.

Q. How much time do you expect an Express train to take for covering a distance of 65 km on an electrified BG double line, with three stoppages in between?
A. 100 minutes, if you're travelling from QLN to TVC or vice versa by 16342/16341!!

Controllers of SR/TVC having a filed day today; almost all up trains are running late.
A sample of their efficency: 66301 ERS QLN MEMU was held @ KRPP for 20 minutes for a twin light loco to pass; this train could've easily reached ETM for this crossing.
66301 held again @KTYM for twin crossings: 12515 & a goods train.
Imagine the urgency behind
...
more...
sending a goods train in between many express trains, that too on a day when thousands of pilgrims are returning home after Makaravilakku @ Sabarimala. Thanks to this superior decision added to heavy rush from CNGR, 16525, 12082, QLN MAS Suvidha, 12624 etc are all running late.
To make a long story short, 66301 eventually reached QLN @ 1950, after getting overtaken by 16605 at PRND. As per railway records, it was just an hour late(actually it was 90 minutes late @ PRND; so think about the slack!).
(PS: I do accept that you pay nominal fare in passenger trains; but does it mean the train shouldn't be allowed to run to its approved time table?!)

I have never understood the basis on which controllers take decision on day to day basis. Also quite sure that these decisions are also thrust upon them instead of taking them independently.
Is there some set of rules/priority lists on the basis of which they prioritise ?

Priority is set by the Operations manual and important aspects are incorporated in Working Time Table(WTT) circulated to operation staff. AFAIK, Goods are not supposed to get priority over any kind of passenger trains; but in reality they accord priority to goods, especially oil tankers etc to ensure their arrival ON TIME, which fetches railways some incentive or additional charges.
