Chief minister Raghubar Das on Thursday flagged off the Hatia-Ernakulam Weekly Express (22837) at 5.05pm from Hatia station, a pre-Diwali boon for south-bound passengers, especially those going to Vellore for medical assistance.
After Thursday's inaugural run, the fully air-conditioned train will leave Hatia every Monday at 6.15pm and reach Ernakulam at 10.55am on Wednesday, travelling 2,248km in 40 hours 40 minutes with 22 halts and 344 intermediate stations.
Among them, Katpadi junction, which is nearest to CMC Vellore, is possibly the biggest attraction of the train.
important junctions that this weekly train will cross include Rourkela, Sambalpur, Visakhapatnam, Vijayawada, Salem, Erode, Coimbatore and Palakkad.
From Ernakulam, the train will start every Thursday at 12.25am and reach Hatia on Friday at 5.10pm.
Flagging off the debut run with 89 passengers, chief minister Das said: "I urge Railway Board to name the train Bhagwan Birsa Munda Weekly Express. Jharkhand is an important state for revenue generation and the railway ministry should give it priority."
"Bogies of Jharkhand trains are archaic and in poor condition. I wish they are changed," he added.
The chief minister also reminded railway officials that an exclusive railway link between Ranchi and Jamshedpur was a pressing need for people of Jharkhand.
Ranchi MP Ramtahal Choudhary, in his address, called the Hatia-Ernakulam weekly a blessing for ailing passengers going to Vellore and said the train should run twice a week.
Other dignitaries present for the flag-off were Rajya Sabha MP Mahesh Poddar, Hatia MLA Navin Jaiswal, South Eastern Railway general manager A.K. Goel and divisional railway manager (DRM) of Ranchi division Anshul Gupta.
Passengers agreed the new train was a boon.
Nand Kumar, an army personnel posted in Namkum, and one of the train's first passengers, said: "I wanted to go home to Palakkad in Kerala but was waitlisted on another train. So, when I read in newspapers about this new train, I instantly booked a ticket in it. ?Father Peter D'Souza, another passenger who hails from Bangalore, said he had to reach his hometown at the earliest. "I was mulling a train from Jamshedpur but luckily this train was announced at the right time," he said. "Now, I can reach Rajahmundry on this train and catch a connecting train to Bangalore easily," he added.
Sister Anila of Ernakulam added she had been planning to buy a tatkal ticket of Dhanbad-Alappuzha Express when the announcement of this new train "filled me with joy".
Sudhir Toppo was the loco pilot and Naman Toppo was the assistant loco pilot of the Hatia-Ernakulam weekly train during its debut run.
