i think this is the one speeded up by 70 minutes, but it is not showing in IRCTC. In the Salient features released by SR, both the up and down trains are mentioned with the same number 16526

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
