Today went to see off my cousin who was going to Patna by this train. There were hardly 100 people in this train which comprised 16AC coaches. Even the return train has more than 1000seats Available. IR runs such loss-making trains and then cries that railway is running in losses.
I know during puja there is a huge rush so tickets in these trains should be available atleast one month prior to departure otherwise it'll go empty.

The main reason is lack of publicity. This train would have been in heavy WL if it was announced atleast 10 days ago.

After much hue and cry the railways did give CBE-SBC a train which was a day train. (Uday express).....quite surprised that the division and passenger associations allowed it to start knowing fully well that overnight train would have been a much better option. i thought that SA division had better clout compared to divisions in Kerala !!
Having said that just a small query. Do you think there will be better patronage if this same train (Uday express) runs overnight or would people rather prefer a sleeper kind of train.
Also with
regard to your mentioning on quota for CBE, I can see that trains like Island express, YPR-CAN all have CBE in General quota which is all the more better as compared to having PQ or RL quota.

CBE is not under GNWL in either Island or CAN-YPR.. Both are RLWL only.

Yes, that was a worst move to accept the UDAY Express in the first place. The 12677/78 was doing a lot better as dedicated train. Even during those days, there was a request for ONT. To your question, there is definitely a great scope for a regular SF or Express with All class configuration (SL, 3A, 2A, UR) doing better than UDAY. The concept of UDAY is just an eye wash. Its day train to ply in high density routes like MAS-SBC. It doesnt work in CBE - SBC route. Instead of UDAY, in the same slot if an Inter City Exp is deployed, it would make more. In the mentioned trains, though general quota, it has to be sharing with other destinations too. I wouldn want to take seats which belongs to CAN, ERS and other towns. When you have a load for a dedicated train from CBE, TUP, ED,...
why do you wanna compete with the other trains?? This actually does reduces the load on KL bound trains.

Look at the demand for 11013 and it is enough to judge the crowd in this sector. Even with no guarantee of punctual running people are forced to take Kurla or depend on buses. That's the reason why the special did not work since it ran late. I myself travelled by the MYS-ERS special. It was 3 hours late. YPR-ERS special has good ONT timings for CBE. Plus the Tatkal fare of additional 300 bucks in 3A makes the special fare very high. The KJM-CBE special ran in the day time as fare as I remember. On sunday even Kongu express has good demand from CBE to YPR. So clearly the people who say CBE-SBC does not deserve a dedicated ONT are fooling themselves. The Uday in reverse direction from SBC-CBE is running well with last minute pax. Double deckers across IR are running with poor patronage why single out Uday....
Even after repeated assurance from RM of an ONT, it was not allowed to run.
The uday's day of run is also proposed to be changed to monday and wednesday off which may help. If the Uday can depart after 12680 and before West coast, and west coast is delayed by 10 mins it can get even more patronage from CBE.

True, but still the gap for an ONT cannot be replaced with UDAY. Lets see what happens.
