Why all the Chennai – Mangaluru Trains Passes through Erode, I think Bangaluru, Hassan is the shortest route? Why there is no train in shortest route?

Yes also recently the ghat section are getting lot of trains, so I think its worth introducing a new train from MAQ to MAS via SMVT

One train definately needed via shiradi ghats from chennai as there is no connectivity there. It can be for mangaluru or via KR any destination. SR never cares to run such as it feels routing via CLT attracts more revenue. Technically ghat section adding difficulty,+ via CLT u can easily take 22 coacher train which via hassan we have restriction of 14/16 i suppose. so y to sacrifice extra revenue when running time is similar.

Atleast a weekly with 14 - 16 coaches would suffice.

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake.
