Following protests from several
quarters, the Railways has decided to
revoke orders to cancel the temporary
halts of three trains at Edappally and
Kalamassery stations.
The decision comes in the wake of concerns that the move would violate
the Election Commission’s code of
conduct. “The move can be
misinterpreted as a decision favouring
or opposing a political leader or party.
...

This is why the Railways has decided to revoke its plans to cancel the stops.
However, these stops will definitely be
cancelled after the elections,” sources
said.
The Railways on Thursday issued a press
release stating that the temporary halt which was provided for train
No.16525/16526, Kanyakumari-
Bangalore Central-Kanyakumari Express
and Train No. 16649/16650, Nagercoil
Junction - Mangalore Central-Nagercoil
Junction Parasuram Express at Tripunithura station and temporary
stoppage at Kalamasseri and Edappally
stations for Punalur-Guruvayur fast
passenger would be withdrawn from
Saturday.
These stops had been provided on a trial basis. Since the patronage was less,
the Railways decided to cancel the
stops.

R S5 means ticket has remained in RAC- both you and your co-passenger can occupy berth No. 63 which is a Side lower berth- in case of some passenger not turning up such berth will get allotted to the RAC passenger

Yeah, rac means traveling on sharing basis. Both the passengers will be given side lower berth which needs to be shared for entire journey. If tte sees any vacant berth on board, he may allot one to rac passenger.

From MYS one can go to CLT (by road) within 4 hrs and can catch a train to ERN and can reach by 4 hrs
This will be useful as a train between MYS-SBC. 16526 takes more than 11 hrs to reach ERN. MYS to SBC another 3 hrs. So total around 14 hrs. From MYS one can go to CLT (by road) within 4 hrs and can catch a train to ERN and can reach by 4 hrs. So total time will take around 8-9 hrs. Don't think so much useful for passengers from MYS to ERN and further.
