Not only Vanchinad, but you have a ERS KTYM QLN MEMU also, which leaves ERS @ 0515. Still there are chances of changes in departure timings of both these to accommodate SBC TVC Premium Express. As of now, Vanchinad takes 4h 40 mts to cover 223 km from ERS to TVC; high time they reduced its stops & improved its speed.

Vanchinadu have enough buffer time.. Most of the time it follow Jayanthi from QLN onwards..better jayanthi can speed up much and reach tvc around 9 and Malabar around 8.30 AM. As per my knowledge the buffer time fixed becoz of doubling work on ktym route

There are news on Malayalam Media about the Time Changes of Island (16526) Express to have RSA with CAPE - MS SF.
So SBC ERS SF likely to move to a time slot of 9 pm - 10 pm to cater the needs of PGT & CBE People.

SR on the other hand, detains this train for every trains that comes on its way or even behind it (12082) (like 12082) or selects this train to provide stoppages at all the stations en route

SR on the other hand, detains this train for every trains that comes on its way or even behind it (JS) (12082) or selects this train to provide stoppages at all the stations en route
Felt sad that a train who has been serving IR for over 50 years, the legendary Island Express, is never given its due, be it by SR or SWR. Though SWR has provided some new SL coaches, it is never given priority that it deserves, be in allotting priority timings or platforms. SR on the other hand, detains this train for every trains that comes on its way or even behind it (like 12082) or selects this train to provide stoppages at all the stations en route
