Reservation suspended for the train after Oct 2nd. All RSA trains reservation are also suspended. Likely to see some changes in TT but since RSA reservation is also suspended, its likely to still have RSA after LHBfication. Will the departure change to morning 06 AM from Charlapalli ? Have to wait and watch.....

One thing is for sure. SR is lazy and waste zone. Especially MAS and TVC , they don't want to maintain no train but keep their zones lol and I say this as SR railfan lol

Malabar, Maveli, West Coast and Mangalore Mail have this RSA amounting to 8 rakes. 16347/48 TVC-MAQ (along with Matsyagandha) and Parasuram can expect to get new rakes somewhat sooner.

Recently, SR has been prioritizing LHB rakes almost exclusively for its long-distance trains. A few more like Andaman, Gomti Sagar, Gurudev, CBE-RJKT, NCJ-GIMB etc. remain.

Tirunelveli was never a part of TVC division, though.

Southern Kerala was a part of the MDU division and Trivandrum was the final terminus on the TSI-QLN-TVC MG line.

TVC division was carved
out of MDU division after the QLN-ERS lines were laid and TVC-NCJ-TEN lines were added that allowed it to have the sufficient track length for a new division.

The TEN-CAPE line was laid in BG while other lines to Tirunelveli were still MG.

PGT and TVC divisions comprised of completely BG lines. The TSI-QLN MG lines were retained by MDU division and the same arrangement persists to date.

Oh got it, I thought earlier TEN station used to be with TVC div and they moved away , Either way , Kanyakumari, NCJ, NCT all needs to go with MDU division.

Earlier CBE, MTP used to be PGT Div and now I am glad it got moved out of PGT and with SA div or CBE would have been a dumping yard station like CAPE.

    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. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
