understood Rake utilization. But the main important part is Seating Reservation
Because of RSA with Night train, cholan badly hits with SL coaches.

SR will think only about revenue. They know people will go for sleeper if 2s is full.
There are less chance to get 2s coaches for Cholan. Only possibility is, make more sleeper coaches to 2s.

PM-Pandiyan to MS- Cholan to TPJ- RF to MS- RF to TPJ- Cholan to MS - Pandiyan to MDU
This is the RSA pattern i guess. Cholan will be going back as RF. So ideally, i dont think at a time 2 lhb will be present in TPJ at a time

Mail from TVC side can be speeded up after doing some alterations in CAN-YPR exp.. Mail from MAS got speeded up at PGT arrival ryt!! Well.. Now only doubling works can decide their fate.. And division handover effect is also there in these sections..

Because of Bharatapuza bridge. It act as one way for train coming from SRR side to TVC blocking TVC-PGT traffic. Train will be crossing bridge in slow pace and then move to up line. It takes a lot of time, delaying other trains.

This train might get e loco link back soon, since there is need for more e locos. Also VM to TPJ electrification has started, so d link is very temporary.
