Next to the recently extended Chalukya this is the only other train that connects Kaveri delta with Interior KA. Tourism to Kaveri delta by people of KA and tourism to Interior KA by people of Central TN are much popular from ancient times. Promotion of tourism and brotherhood are the cultural goals of this train. A route which never needs a diversion :)

Once upon a time Steam Engines use to whistle past this stretch and later on the YDM's took over chugging for a decade or so ... very soon this line was closed for gauge conversion and finally opened back to traffic in 2010.
The first Express train to conquer this new BG line was the Vasco Da Gama Velankanni Weekly Express as seen in the video .
Enjoy the scenic back waters of the Velankanni Coast line as the Vasco bound weekly Express hauled by a chugging ALCo from KJM Diesel

Not terminated- I guess most likely some timing change or some route change via SA-KRR line
