This needs speed up. 4 hr 15 min too much. Already ECR 4 line road working getting finished. By bus will take 2 hr 30 min from Tiruvanmayur.

This train should be upgraded to SF ..
It should start early at PDY(5 AM) and reach MS in 3 hrs.
It should be extended to BZA and the present JS(12077) should be scrapped.

OK what about the return then it will reach MS at 2230 Pondy at 130.changing time to 500 will defeat the purpose of the train which is expected to serve daily travellers to reach at office of 900 to 1000.I don't think the journey time can be cut to 3 hrs.

PDY - VM its 30 mins
VM - MS 2 hrs 30 mins should be sufficient ..
Coming to JS
12077 JS should be re-routed Via TEL instead of NGNT ..(There r multiple buses from TEL to GNT)
its starts at 8:10 it can reach BZA by 14:15
Return if it starts at 14:30 it can reach MS 20:35
If it starts at 20:45 it can reach 23:45 to PDY
To mitigate the loss 56860 can be converted to Exp and extended till MS ..

Don't think 6 hrs to egmore is possible for intercity with stops during daytime. Will GNT representatives be ready to divert it back to mainline is a big question. They will ask to reroute pinakini via NGNT are u open for such proposal?? Turnaround time in BZA maintenance time at PDY not sufficient 5 hrs is too low the effective time available is just 4 hrs according to your timings. Some trains which are introduced to benefit local travellers serving office goers and business travellers should not be extended to other places.

I that was the case .. at-least 12077 JS should be converted normal SF Exp (24 Coaches) like Pinakini ..
The present train is not sufficient to the existing demand

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . 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. Also,...

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far.
