Bypass Vskp great idea then they can run end to end empty. As of now be cause of premium tag travellers are avoiding the upper classes and what ever major bookings is done may be between Kjm to Bza/vskp because of conveinent timng and vskp booking I'll totally comedown. Even in down direction travellers prefer Vskp - Tpt as prefect overnight and it I'll be bound to lose that traffic too.
At 1100 DD arrival 1115 LTT vskp 1130 tirumala 1145 Tiruchi HWH as they maintain 15 min gap between most train dep/arrival in vskp its difficult to accpmodate .in first instance the change in Timi ngs of tirumala is totally unnecessary and can arrive at 1055. Chennai Vskp/DD at 1105 BbS premium at 1115 and LTt vskp at 1130 as all trains enter the vskp station through bza side a gap of 10 mins can be maintained. LTT vskp runs late most of time and is not able to make it at 1115 and as a result sometimes tirumala arrives first or is being controlled or overtaken by trichy ratnachal and is arrives ng at 1230.
Looks like u understood my words" great idea" in negative meaning. I am joking (vetakaram in our words) if at all EoCR takes such decision for the traffic analysis I have written in my comment. Everyone knew that vskp has 8 pfs but when u see the time tables of any major stations they maintain 10 mins gap between succesive arrivals or dep for 80% trains. When the train crosses kancharapalem gate and past the outer signal (last stopping point) its taking 5-8 mins for the train to fully halt in platform.

2004 year spl gone via kjm skipped it T.no: 742, 741 Kacheguda-Kottayam (bi-weekly) specials: Train no: 742 would depart Kacheguda on Sundays and Thursdays at 9 a.m and arrive Kottayam at 1.15 p.m on Mondays and Fridays. In the return direction, train no: 741 would depart Kottayam on Mondays and Fridays at 3.30 p.m. and arrive Kacheguda at 10.45 p.m on Tuesdays and Saturdays. The composition of the trains would be one AC 3-tier, 10 second sleeper, one general second class and two luggage-cum-brake van coaches. The trains would stop at Mahbubnagar, Kurnool... more...
Can be given for 12658. Reaching SBC from Whitefield or adjacent areas in the peak evening traffic can get a bit difficult. Traffic can get so bad that I missed this train once even though I started from Marathahalli at 8PM. Since then I've always preferred to take Lalbagh from KJM to SBC and then board this train. The case for 12657 is better as it reaches in the early morning and traffic isn't much of a problem at that hour to travel from SBC to WFD etc. And besides, this train used to halt at KJM for a very long time. One side halt could prove useful for a lot of people.
Absolutely! Bangalore traffic is miserable. Should start atleast 3 hrs before to reach SBC. Ppl in KJM and surrounding areas can take Mail without any problem if there is halt at KJM for 12658. 12657 has a halt at BNCE. So ppl need not go all the way to SBC.
