But late running award goes to these trains : 2873/12874 Jharkhand Superfast exp and 12401 Magadh Exp set World Record for Late running Since 2006. 11years has gone situation become bad to worse. As per data, both trains run average 3 Hours late since 2006 and Average 5 hrs late from 2011 . One should know the Average means annual average, for example, today 12873 is running 8 hours late , one days before it was five hours ......... like that, Congratulate both trains for setting world Record. Speical thanks for GM Northern Central Allahabad and GM Northern Delhi . 12873 JHARKHAND Always enter Right time NCR at Chunar but reached Delhi 5-8 Hrs late.

Quick guide for Kodaikanal bound tourists from MDU.
1) Exit from the station. Walk ahead. Take a right turn.
2) Walk to the traffic signal to reach Periyar bus-stand.
3) Take a local bus to Arapalayam bus stand. Bus#48 is one of them. It'd take 15 minutes and Rs.9/- in the bus.
From Arapalayam bus stand, take the bus to Kodaikanal, it'd take 3.5-4 hrs and Rs. 62/- for the journey.
5) In return, the last direct bus to MDU from Kodaikanal is at around 17:15. So DO NOT plan a departure later than that.
6) In case you get late, you can get a Dindigul bound bus to Batlagundu (from where you can change for MDU) but even that service isn't available after 19:30.

Good info,
do you have timings of buses from kodaikanal to madurai in afternoon, as per your info the last bus to madurai is at 17.15 however in the chart the last bus is at 19.15 so guess this is the arrival time of this bus at madurai.
Is it possible to get a seat in madurai in morning on sunday between 7-9 am at madurai and at kodaikanal between 3 and 5 pm on sunday. Planning to go in mid july

It is totally possible, you just need to be quick and board the bus as soon as it arrives.
I went there on long weekends, and managed to get a seat. So not that tough.

The 7PM departure bus from Kodai may or may not be available. Suggest you to depart before 5.
Also from Kodai, getting a seat is easier.

Train 16525 / 16526 must be diverted via Salem - Erode - Karur - Dindigul - Madurai - Virudhunagar - Kovilpatti - Tirunelveli - Nagercoil to reach / depart from Kanniyakumari because there is not enough trains for Salem, Erode and Karur passengers to reach the South TN. Do not talk about 16609 / 16610 and 17235 / 17236.

Re# 2299299-1            Tags   Past Edits
Yes, you are right your view and agree.even i checked list of train to South. It is very few when i wanted to reach RMM from madurai.
However Island Exp is considered to be train for Keralites.
Even for Coimbatore, No dedicated Train from Bangalore. Island is 2nd Option next to Kurla if seats are unavailable.
If i am right, there are
some trains from CBE/ED to South TN (apart from 16609/10) such as Nagercoil Exp (16339), NCJ Passenger , TEN passenger train,Mumbai CST-Nagercoil/TEN.

not needed instead if nemom developed ISLAND can be short terminated at nemom or if KCVL YPR made daily and extended to TVC this can be short terminated at KCVL. NCJ TEN have NCJ SBC TN MDU have TN MYS and TPJ TJ have MYS MV. PDY have triweekly to sbc. RMM KKDI have no trains to sbc which needs to be adressed than this diversion

on talking of ED KRR they have CBE NCJ. once POY line opens then surely train RMM CBE and SCT CBE will be in tracks that time load of NCJ CBE will get splits making ED TUP KRR to get major share than CBE. so i dont think this is necessary. one more option possible is making NCJ CBE and ED TEN as express and introduce DEMU for intermediates.
