If there is a slot available for this train without affecting the existing operation, it should be done, no doubt about it, if not certainly MAQ needs another platform and other infrastructure expansion.
At the same time isn't it also responsibility for those in powers there (city corporation, and legislature) to improve road connectivity/public transport to Mangaluru Junction, not from Kudla express perspective alone, but also for other trains which pass through Mangaluru junction so that people of Mangaluru are truly benefited with two stations and more trains?
Not all trains from

Chennai start at Chennai Central, some begin at Egmore which is like 2.2 Km away and now there is plan to make Tambaram also as a terminal station (almost nearing completion) and which is like a good 27 kilometer from chennai central.
Within SWR itself in Bangalore don't we have trains beginning from KSR and some trains beginning from Yasvantpur junction which is like 7 kilometers apart ? I still remember days i used to my tense trip in traffic to Yasvantpur junction when i used to work at Bengaluru, where there is always a chance that i might miss my train due to traffic.
The distance from Mangaluru Junction is like 5 kilometer's ? as for 16517 the train belongs to SWR, so the decision to run it as a slip service is surely a conscious decision of SWR.

No it wasn't ----- powerful bureaucrats in Delhi pressurised and split that train.
-
Instead of blaming local authorities, why can't SR do its JOB and allow a state capital train at the main station. So many trains to TN capital and Kerala capital can start, not one for the people of Karnataka to their capital? Let one of those train start from MAJN.

Who is to blame for not re-naming Mangalore as Mangaluru? 2014 state govt. changed the name, but SR keeping the name as what it was during Madras Presidency time.....

Pre-paid auto was started and shut down due to problems created by SR at MAJN (my friend said).
-
Look at the condition of MAJN, does it look like a major city station where 70 odd trains stop?

Now this blog is gonna be archived....that's what SR fans will do.... :)

Although it starts and ends at Punalur, more importance is given for the timings of other Imp stations like Kollam , Kottayam, Ernakulam, Thrissur & Palakkad as it expects more commuters from these stations especially office-goers.
