I also feel so. The train is running on Tuesdays. How can it be filled up?
So, even if there are less passengers, train should not be cancelled.
Should either be run on Sunday nights from Coimbatore and Friday nights from Krishnarajapuram.
If that is not possible, number of coaches may be reduced but service should continue.

For the last so many instances whenever any special trains have been run from Bangalore either till Kerala or CBE, SWR has always ensured that there is no departure on a Friday from Bangalore, probably due to the bus lobby. They dont seem to have any issues on congestion, path availability for the rest of the weekdays but Friday always has been a problem
