hello ., can anyone explain the need for RSA ? specifically for cholan , pandian and rockfort
i have always wondered ., why RSA for pandian and rockfort ., why are they not maintained separately ??
in both the ways , i mean up and down .... totally 4 LHB rakes move - 2 pandian (12637 & 12638) , 2 rockfort (16177 & 16178) - travel on the same night - then why should the coaches be shared or how it is done ... please someone explain
using
...
more...
the same set of coaches for a day train - that too a train that travels 1 day + 1 night - makes sense
but cholan express ., is just 1 day travelling train - pity those who have booked in cholan ., i dont know why they have to pay for SL and travel during the day time ., if the same can be done in pallavan (except for the timing convenience)
even UR ticket holders hop into SL coaches of cholan - here i mean those who travel for a short distance ie between MS-CGL or CGL-VM or VM-CDM or CDM-KMU or KMU-TPJ

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.
