Sep 23 2016 (11:21AM) Whether the trains started running at the running right time
Planning to travel in the Island Express (16525) from TVLA to TCR. Ticket already reserved. Whether the trains started running at the right time. For the last 2 to 3 days the train was running 3 to 4 hours delayed (as per the arrival/departure history). Tried to reach the railway station many times - no luck. 139 says all trains are running right time. Confused... more...
After shocks of derailment between STKT & KPY yet to get settled. Also a new crack detected near VAK station today morning. Hence except for trains like Rajdhani & JanSatabdi, others are yet to recover fully. So expect Island Express too to run late, atleast by 30 - 40 minutes.

CRS inspection of newly laid double line from PVRD to KRPP (13 km) & from CNGR to TRVL (9 km) scheduled for 25th & 26th. New lines were supposed to be made operational in last April itself. Glad that CRS is visiting Kerala to commission these lines, after a delay of 4 months. Also wondering how long it will take for the completion of doubling in TRVL - KRPP (43 km) section. Say by 2020?!!

Jul 29 2016 (3:15PM) These pictures are from the portion between Chengannur-Ettumanur and Tiruvalla
Snapped some photographs of the doubling work on the Chengannur-Ettumanur section. These pictures are from the portion between Chengannur and Tiruvalla. I also spotted some people who I assume are inspecting the track work. Past Tiruvalla, I have noticed that electrification has not begun, and after a point the track is still to be laid. The train I am currently in(16562: Kochuveli Yesvantpur AC Express) is waiting at Changanassery, presumably for a crossing. There is some construction work going on here as well, and I will post images of that in another thread. Does anyone know when the doubling work is planned to be finished on this complete section?
