Earlier before 10 years Kerala Superfast Express till 2007 Used to travel via this route Guduru-Chennai Central-Arakkonam-Katpadi ,But after that a demand from the public of Tirupati Pilgrims who are going to New Delhi asked for the diversion of this train Via Katpadi-Chittoor-Pakala-Tirupati-Renigunta-Guduru, and moreover Kerala Superfast Express is India's daily longest Running train.The reason is that Tirupati,Chittoor People don't have a daily direct train to NewDelhi.and already Chennai People have daily 2 trains to New Delhi.Tamilanadu Superfast Express and GrandTrunk(GT)Superfast Express and at that time Rajadhani Bi-Weekly Superfast was there and TN SamparkKranthi Via Chennai Egmore was also introduced in 2004 it was weekly at that time,but after sometime it was changed to Bi-Weekly and Thirukkural Superfast Via Chennai Egmore was also introduced in 2002 but at that it was weekly and now it was changed to Bi-weekly after the demand from the people of South Tamilanadu.Now...
Even there is one more Bi-Weekly Superfast Express for the People of Chennai to go to NewDelhi that is Dehradun/Chandigarh-Madurai 12687/88.Earlier this is Dehradun/Chandigarh-Chennai and moreover it was weekly at that time,but after the demand from the people of Madurai,Dindigul and Karur this train was extended till Madurai from Chennai and made Bi-Weekly.
Then why can't Chennai-Mumbai LTT-Chennai Weekly Express 11074/73 diverted Via GDR-BZA-KZJT-PDPL-NZB-MMR-KYN? even this weekly train will not effect the people who are travelling to Mumbai in current route that is Via Renigunta-Cuddapah-Guntakal-Raichur-Wadi-Pune-Kaly an.If this train is diverted via this GDR-BZA-KZJT-PDPL-NZB-MMR-KYN route it will travel for extra 329kms the thing is that both routes are completely different and doesn't meet till Kalyan Junction from Chennai.but instead it will cater the needs of the intermediate station people like SPE,NYP,GDR,NLR,KVZ,SKM,OGL,CLX,BPP,NDO,TEL people to go to Mumbai.and this train will travel for more extra 5hours on this proposed route.and from MAS to PDPL it is fully double electrified route and it is known as GT Route and Now on some parts of MAS-PDPL GT Route Tripling works also have been started and the speed on this route is very high.As MAS-PDPL Section is fully busy with Rajadhani's,Duronto's,GareebRath's and Humsafar's.and moreover MAS-GDR-BZA section people don't have a single train to Mumbai.Then what's the problem in diverting this weekly train?
Even Hyderabad-Narasapur-Hyderabad Daily Express used to travel via SC-PGDP-KZJ-BZA section in it's early days ,immediately after some days it's route alignment chandged via SC-PGDP-NLDA-NDKD-GNT-BZA which is completely different route when compared to PGDP-KZJ-BZA route.Now this train has got a lot of demand from the people of delta areas.Then what's the problem in diverting or changing the Alignment of Narasapur-Nagarsol-Narasapur 17213/14 Express Via Kazipet Town-Peddapalli-Nizamabad instead of running it on fully packed Kazipet Jn-Secunderabad Jn-Nizamabad Jn.
One more Better Example is that Navajeevan Superfast Express Ahmedabad-Chennai Central-Ahmedabad 12656/55 is travelling an extra of 180kms Via GDR-TEL-BZA-DKJ-KZJT-PDPL-BPQ-MJRI-WR-BD-AK-BSL-JL -ST-AKV-BRC-ANND and this route is longer when compared to Ahmedabad-Chennai Central-Ahmedabad Bi-Weekly Express 19420/19 Via AJJ-RU-HX-YA-GY-GTL-RC-WADI-SUR-KWV-DD-PUNE-KJT-PN VL-ST-BRC-ADI.The above example clearly shows that even the Railways will consider distance as a major factor,but they will mainly concentrate on the passenger traffic on a particular route the train is travelling through and where the demand from the people of a particular route is very high and to cover intermediate station people by catering their needs.Even though the travel time of both these trains travelling on particular route is just 2 hours difference,even though the distance is 180kms long.
One more Example is that Konark Express 11019/20 Mumbai CST-Bhubaneshwar-Mumbai CST Daily Express Via KUR-BAM-VZM-VSKP-SLO-EE-BZA-DKJ-KZJ-SC-VKB-WADI-GR -SUR-KWV-DD-PUNE-KJT-KYN is travelling for more than 130 kms when compared to Mumbai LTT-Puri-Mumbai LTT Weekly Superfast Express 22865/66 Via CTC-RJGR-SBP-JSG-CPH-BSP-R-G-NGP-WR-BD-AK-BSL-JL-M MR-KYN.
If we observe both these trains and routes through which these trains are travelling through are completely different from BBS-KYN,both these routes doesn't match from Bhubaneshwar till Kalyan.The reason is that Konark Express one portion of the Odisha state and Puri Weekly Superfast Express covers the remaining portion of odisha state.So morethan half of the part of odisha state is connected to Mumbai with their state capital Bhubaneshwar in both the different routes.
Then what is the problem of diverting 11074/73 MAS-LTT-MAS Weekly Express Via GDR-BZA-KZJT-PDPL-NZB-NED-AWB-MMR-KYN,on considering the above examples as a major factor.Can't it be implemented on this weekly train?If so implemented and diverted a lot of South Coastal AP people along with North Telangana districts people get benefited through this train to go to Mumbai,Nagarsol,Aurangabad,Nanded,Nasik Road and Viceversa.
