My name is Srinivasan from SG Associates. We are one of the reputed Builders in Kumbakonam, Thanjavur Dist, Tamil Nadu. (please refer to click here for more details about our company)
First of all I would like to Thank our Indian Railways for their wonderful initiatives and achievements in the past 2 -3 years connecting various remote towns and cities under their network helping passengers to travel easily, comfortably and most important cost effectively. Its indeed a great achievement when compared to other developing countries around the world, especially taking
into consideration the length and breath of India.
The services offered by Railways (both inside and outside the coach) has been very qualitative and efficient. Since we operate out of Kumbakonam, I would like to sincerely thank the Railway staffs operating out of Kumbakonam Railway station on their valuable service.
The way Kumbakonam Railway station has proved itself for providing Quality service in a most Effective, Efficient and Economical way is very much appreciated when compared to the dramatic increase in the number of passengers visiting kumbakonam year after year (especially during Mahamaham festival times).
Here I would like to make an humble request before you on behalf of thousands of people who are visiting kumbakonam from various parts of South India. Considering the number of passengers visiting kumbakonam, (that's sizably increasing year after year), It would be really great if the number of trains serving kumbakonam from various location across South India can be increased so that It would be convenient for people visiting kumbakonam (especially who are visiting the Navagraha temples). Most of them reach Trichy, Bangalore, Madurai or Coimbatore and travel down by Car to Kumbakonam since the frequency of Trains connecting these Main locations are limited. Plus It would be really useful if the connectivity between kumbakonam and other major stations mentioned can be improved by any means in the next 1-2 years since we also see lots of international visitors travelling from these major locations to kumbakonam that are connected to Airways.
Thanks again

Trip Report: Quick Prilgrimage to Kumbakonam and Thanjavur
-------------------------------------------------- ----------------------------
Thanking the goddess of luck.. i managed to get Tatkal tickets in 2A from SBC to KMU on 16232 for friday 23rd and return from TJ to SBC on 24th Saturday... Lets start with the onward journey...
Reached BNC @ 18.15 hrs with my wifey and 21 months old sweet rascal.... an
hour before the scheduled departure.. Marikuppam passenger was leaving as we entered PF 2. As usual Raj LHB lying in the same place with no care.. I swear the condition is degrading day bt day for these coached.. People have spit pan on rakes and is now started looking ugly... I pity this.. SWR officials please do something about it.. The next one to enter PF2 was KCG express with its extra long rake hauled by WDP-4B... and on the other side on PF1 was AJJ-SBC pass entering with AJJ WAM-4.. the one thing i noticed was this pass had an extra SL coach attached after the SLR and seemed regular as this coach had route board attached on sides... To follow the long KCG exp was the short DPJ Pass which came in with the regular WDG3A.... Well almost on time came in our hero for the day MYS-MV Express with the ED WDM-3D 11195. Ok now the strange thing or may be not... this train being a SWR train was hauled by ED WDM.. generally this is not the case they should have got KJM loco's like how 12257 & 16527 gets... ED alcos are the regular link for this one though... We occupied our seats A1 19 & 21 along with a family going to TJ.. My wife wanted a SL berth so i told the gentlemen if he would fancy a LB for a swap for his SLB.. he readily agreed... As regular the train halted at BYPL for 12678 crossing... waited for like 20 mins and once he crossed we started off.. by then my family and the other family became friends and we started cracking jokes and surprisingly.. they were also returning in the same train back in saturday and we would be meeting in the same coach once again.. Reached CRLM and HSRA 30 mins late which as per the AC attender is regular..Well guys beware no vendors / no pantry in this train.. pls get your food in SBC itself.. Food at HSRA is horrible......... Here is the surprise package.. (to be contd...)

Think there is some arrangement as SR uses two of SWR rakes, 16203/16204 (Garudadri express) and the other is CAPE-NCJ Pass. So may be in return MYS-MV express is pulled by SR loco..It's a guess from me

Obviously there was no line to Colombo, Srinivas. There was a steamer service from Dhanuskodi to a port town in Ceylon. Hence the name BOAT MAIL .

I dont think kik will require mahe connection for admin purpose.
But railways can introduce another train to Madgoan via cbe maq with the same slot of vlnk-Madgoan weekly.
Also I would say quilon express also should start from vlnk and should run via tpj kkdi vpt sct puu.
Hope you understand the demand of transport to velankanni from all over India. Still this
section is under cared by Southern railways. :(
