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.

A deserted 82856 QLN - VSKP Suvidha Special departing QLN @ 0640, delayed by 55 minutes. Train led by BZA/WAG 7 & has worn out coaches from East Coast Railway. For the fare charged for Suvidha special during Sabarimala season, it deserved better coaches!
Standing on the right is 66300 QLN - KTYM - ERS MEMU. (Poor quality of photo regretted).

Hardly a handful of passengers all the SL/GS coaches put together when the train left QLN. Also you don't get ticket from across the counter to board Suvidha Special. Sabarimala pilgrims board the train from Chengannur/Kottayam only.
But had seen this train few days back @ ERN; it was not full. Pilgrim season has not peaked. So subsequent trips will be sold out, I guess.
