Why does this train run with Twins heading the train from MYS to ED and a single loco from ED to TN?

MYS to SA has lots of Gradients , So Twin power is given. Still a single deemer can very well perform well. Only RB has to answer . Even its RSA counterpart MV express is running with single Deemer

Last Friday(28/03) was one of the memorable trips I had in 16236 from MYS to SBC. The train (as usual)started 10mins late at 17:55hrs and crawled towards Naganahalli as Hampi Exp,also ready for departure at 18:15 from PF2 looked on! En route,as we were passing by MNGT,I was shocked to see MLY twins whizz past with a nearly 2hrs late running 12976 JP-MYS "SF "Exp!! Immediately contacted a friend who was travelling by 16557 Rajyarani Exp and got to know that it had still not reached SBC(it later reached @ 18:15 and 16232 would have had one of its worst day b/w MYS-SBC!!) and we were made to wait @ Naganahalli till 18:15 when the second late running 16024 rushed towards Mysore...We then arrived at PANP at 18:35 to see a horribly late running Tippu "SF" Exp(seriously,the railways must collect Pssr fare on this train until doubling is completed!!)awaiting our...

arrival. We then zoomed towards MYA and suddenly screeched to a halt just before Yeliyur to see a twin EMD led BCNA right opposite to 16236,but a little away. Waited for nearly 20mins when the EMDs retreated back to Yeliyur stn and 16236 was made to enter PF2 @Yeliyur.After the drama, moved 16236 zoomed to wards MYA and then to MAD.I was skeptical that we would get a clearance for the next crucial 12km single line section and was wondering if 16216 could throw up a surprise by crossing Settihalli and then 16236 slowly crawled out of Maddur-Phew! a great relief.But,it never picked up speed and I was wondering as to why it was moving so slow despite the delay and that's when I spotted an old metallic bridge to my left...This was indeed a pleasant surprise to travel by the new double line bridge which currently has one line completed for operations.There was no press release I had come across that Railways had conducted trials or that the new bridge has been commissioned.This bridge is the most crucial part b/w SET-MAD stretch which when operation with double lines makes SBC-MYA section fully doubled saving lot of time! Many regular travelers stood up from their seats to see the run on the new bridge! We then zoomed towards Channapatna with no sight of 16216 at SET and finally spotted it just before we reached CPT at 20:05 hrs. Reached KGI at 20:45 and SBC at 21:12 hrs -a good run given the slack time 16236 has and the best part was run on the new bridge.Hope the works on the other line is completed & the double line b/w SET-MAD is also commissioned soon making SBC-MYA a fully double lined stretch.
Thanks for reading! :)

I'd like to travel from SBC to KQN on 11 April 2014 by Sleeper class. Current availability is RLWL212/WL197. If I book from KGI to KQN instead, availability is GNWL123/WL114.
Which of them has a greater chance of confirmation(or getting to RAC)?

Then better try for previous night train if possible- you also have Chalukya running that day where better chances of availability are there to KQN

Yes, but the trouble is, we've planned a weekend trip, so inflexible with dates. I'll do the booking now and go for tatkal if it looks unlikely to get confirmed the previous morning...

Trip Report SBC to MDU 20th Jan 2014
after a long gap, it was again the trip by 16235 and the 1st time after it changed to the new number- took some time to actually understand my ticket with 16236
Anyway reached Bangalore city junction at 8:35PM as 16526 Island Express with Erode WAP4 rested on PF-1. Saw that engine was just behind the cement ramp and hence walked to there just to find the KJM WDM2 shunter getting clearance from PF-2 as it moved with rake of 56513 KIK-SBC pass. PF-3 had a WAP7 at the end though it was 12678 standing as 12609 from MAS occupied Pf-4. AJJ WAP1 with 56213 TPTY Fast pass was getting ready for departure from Pf-6. PF-5 was the expected platform for our train as

16592 Hampi Express was expected on PF-6
finished the dinner i brought from home and my colleague joined me. In the meantime a GTL wDM-3A brought in WDP-4B-40017 onto Pf-7 and halted. Sanghamithra was expected around 9:40PM
At 9Pm , as usual sans announcements, light peeped out at corner of Pf-5 as Erode WDM-3A twins entered the platform with 16236 10 mins ahead of schedule. at 9:25PM, we got the starter and the twins gave a loud honk marking our departure. to our right was the entry of 12607 Lalbagh Express entering into Pf-4
After customary halt at BNC, we left soon- Unluckily I had been allotted berth B1 17 and 18 and my colleague refused to take 17 meaning I had to take the berth-the coach was a quite neat 2004 made coach with curtains in each and every bay and toilets were very neat- Being an offical trip, couldnt afford to stay awake but anyway managed till BYPL. At BYPL, expected to wait for clearance but looked like 11013, 12027 and 12295 didnt want to spoil us and clearance was green. As the train took the turn, I went off to sleep at 22:15 hrs just as we approached Carmelram
ussssssssssssss!!!! Sound of an alco woke me up as i felt we slowing down. Time was 2:30AM and we were entering a station- Salem junction- keeping close to time. the Alco was most likely the 16528 Cannanore-Yeshvantapur Express
It was a good sleep again and I woke up to sound of alarm ringing at 6:15AM- my train was moving fast and I guessed it could be a day of late run- The sun slowly started to peep over the mountains as dawn broke
At 6:35AM we slowed to down to halt at Kodaikkanal road station. So we were moving close to time. We picked speed soon to reach sholavandhan at 6:50AM and left soon- As we neared Samayanallur, GOC WDP-4B hauled 12636 Vaigai Express blasted past. slowly crossed Vaigai river to enter Madurai junction Pf-2 at 7:15AM ahead of schedule by 5 mins as Pandiyan occupied Pf-1, Duronto occupied Pf-3 and 56701 Punalur-Madurai pass occupied Pf-4

Why not split this train into 2 at vanchi maniyachi, so that one can goto Tirunelveli and other can go to Tuticorin(Like sbc-maq, where one half goes to Kannur while the other to Karwar).
Observed that half of the train passengers got down at maniyachi to take the connecting passenger train to tirunelveli. Observed this on the return journey as well.
