This train can be speeded up in many stretches in Kerala. The attached response from railways is kind of mixed. The reason for slack is to avoid unnecessary detention in many stretches where speed varies. Hopefully in the near future might be improved is what the response says.
Absolutely right. This train runs like or lower than passenger train with lot of disrespect and most of the time allowed for overtaking. The train also has cushion in Trichur to PGT stretch. Railways should take immediate steps to speedup so that it can reach Bangalore 30 minutes early

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.
