The oldest unchanged service in IR ( sharing the title with 12609/10 MAS-SBC intercity)! MAS-MAQ One mail (12601/02 ) is the grand-daddy of all trains, RPM-Beypore overnight express, started around 1860! But it was extended, train name changed etc many times, so it is missed out usually.
Mail was originally a JTJ-BNC link express connecting to the MAS-Beypore express at JTJ. ( It was still a Chennai-Bangalore train, but the passengers had to transfer to a separate rake at JTJ as locos at that time could not haul very long rakes to accommodate slip coaches). In a short time though, it became an actual slip service connecting to the Beypore mail at JTJ. It used to take almost
6 hours for the JTJ-BNC stretch! And it had halts at Kuppam, Kolar road ( probably Bangarpet), Malur and Kadugodi ( now Whitefield) and skipped K.R.Puram.

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,...
