Erode's WAP 4 22555 Climbing a gradient after VARD with The Punny Rake of SR 16382 CAPE - CSTM Jayanthi
I think constraints at CSTM,
Even DR-MS is 18 coach train despite having huge demand round the year
There is no contraints at CSTM... CSTM has many trains with 24 coaches which is max capacity originating / terminating
i heard few ppl saying PF constraints at CSTM. Mumbai fans can clarify this
Only the last 3(or 2) platforms at CSTM can accommodate 24 coach trains.
Not sure if it's the last 3 or altogether 3. But most of the platforms have rake length restrictions. That's the reason trains such as Mandovi/Konkan Kanya always depart from the extreme end platforms.
except three pf i.e. 7,8,9 all can accomodate 24 coachers... CSTM have 18 pfs... out of which 7 are used by locals... so remaining 8 can accomodate 24 coachers... so not a constraint i guess...
Yes agree. Still runs with only 2 gen coaches. Has only one 3AC and one 2AC. Its running time can easily be reduced.
In fact passenger associations in Western India had written to railways and also suggested the areas where it can be speeded up. But nothing came out of the same.
There are some trains which run full throughout the year but some constraint totally blocks a future augmentation like for eg. VSG HWH Amaravati express.
Slowed down by 30mins.
Cape arrival @ 12.30 after oct 1
The Western railways passengers association had written to railways and demanded revision of timings for this train. But seems this is not going to happen any time soon.The association has been raising the issue of speeding up 16381 / 16382 Mumbai - Kanyakumari Jayanti Janata Express for the past few years.This train is still running on a schedule prepared 30 years back. Though most passengers from Mumbai do not prefer to travel by this train, this is the only daily train connecting Mumbai and Pune to Palakkad.

I have heard that this train will be speeded up .But the exact opposite happened.
In Kerala i think only DHN-Allp seems to have h got a significant time change. Apart from that I think even Raptisagar express time at ERS has been brough forward by 30 min....not too sure though. At least CAPE-Mumbai CST should have been speeded up.
In PGT div speed up has happened. most of the trains have speed up by 5 to 15min in SRR CAN or CAN MAQ section. But TVC div there is no speed up. Even the train which got speed up in PGT div maintain same time at TVC div. Eg, TVC Mail will be arriving PGT 10Min before current time, but at TVC it is still same old time.

very bad slot,,for 16382,,,because of slack time,,,two hours is two much in between 70 km stretch of thirussur,palakkad stretch,,can be reduced to 01 hour 30 minutes,,two much time taken between sa and jtj,,,its two hours 15 mins,,,can be reduced to 01 hour 45 minutes,,two much time between kpd,pakala,and tirupathi,,,,,,because of these slot sometimes kerala express that depart tvc at 11:15 am will overtake or see sometimes jayanthi janata at renigunta junction which dep tvc at 08:50am,,,big slot from gooty to guntakal junction,,,TOP 1 worst slot of this train i have seen ever is yadgir and wadi section 03 hours 30 minutes for 30 kms,,,oh god,,,worst slack,,,
Check this slack! Ypr gkp express
There r many such examples. . Sad state
Lot of examples. 16528 have two hours for 15 KM between BAND and YPR. 16527 have almost 45 mins between TLY and CAN, just 15 min is enough to cover. So many example like these..
