Earlier this Train had only 5 minutes halt at Katpadi.
Now its overall speeded up by 60 minutes i.e 1hr, but the halt time at Katpadi has been increased to 30 minutes.
No loco change or Reversal is done at KPD , but still 30 minutes.
Seriously if the halt duration would have been kept 5-10 minutes only like earlier schedule, then this
SF can arrive VM before 2100hrs.
A Serious thing to ponder.

OGL slack removed but still SR could have prevented its own home zone train to become bit more faster and arrive VM 20-25 minutes earlier.
Unnecessary KPD halt is given 30 minutes.

If this reason is true, then i feel pity and ashamed on SR officials for deliberately treating their own Home zone SF train to suffer and slow down in their own zone just for the sake of a Passenger train.

ECoR and SCR speeded it up but the train's Own Home Zone SR partially ruined this train's speed by making a 30 minutes halt at KPD.
Atleast VM could have been arrived before 2100hrs which would have been much better as compared to present timings.

To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries.
