But Mumbai is better connected with Varanasi than Chennai. Even now there is no daily direct train from Chennai to Varanasi. Timings are much worse even for existing trains while returning from Varanasi.
Honourable and Dear Prime Minister, please read this and fulfill long felt need for a convenient daily SF train from your constituency to Chennai.

Jul 23 2017 (08:20)   PM to flag off train

Connecting Rameswaram and Ayodhya
Prime Minister Narendra Modi would flag off Rameswaram – Ayodhya express, connecting the pilgrim island and the city in Uttar Pradesh, when he arrives in Rameswaram on July 27 to dedicate to the nation the memorial of former president APJ Abdul Kalam.
According to a tentative programme, the Prime Minister would flag off the train from the function venue at Mandapam, near the helipad, after which, the express train would chug off from Rameswaram Railway station.
rakes have already reached the Rameswaram Railway station and this would be the first direct train service from Ayodhya to a town in south India, sources said.
After the flagging off, the weekly express train is expected to reach Ayodhya on July 29.
Linking of Ayodhya and Rameswaram, the abode of Sri Ramanathaswamy temple, by train was seen as a politically significant move by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which was making attempts to expand its footprints in the south, especially Tamil Nadu.
According to the schedule, the Prime Minister was expected to land in Mandapam helipad around 11 a.m.
He would reach the memorial site at Pei Karumbu by road and dedicate to the nation the memorial built by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) as a tribute to Mr. Kalam for his contribution to the organisation.
After flagging of ‘Kalam Sandesh Vahini,’ a bus from Rameswaram to Rashtrapathi Bhavan, carrying Kalam’s vision 2020, Mr. Modi would return to Mandapam by road to address a public meeting near the helipad.
At the function venue, the Prime Minister would distribute sanction letters to fishermen beneficiaries of long liner trawlers under the blue revolution scheme.
He is also slated to release the synopsis of Green Resilient Rameswaram, a project of Vivekananda Kendra, before addressing the public and leaving for Madurai airport.

It is a great coincidence that this train will be flagged off during dedication of memorial of our beloved APJ Abdul Kalam. He very much wished to complete the BG track to Rameswaram.
Route will be Itarsi-Allahabad or Bhopal-Kanpur-Lucknow?

Good of you to cover this much awaited train.
A small step has been taken and hope this line will get many trains.
For any express train to be successful in this route, number of stoppages should be more.

However for that they have to switch over to diesel loco once again.
But passengers may increase.

Start from Mettupalayam at 8:30 am so that pilgrims can descend from the hills and board the train. I think train can reach Palani by 1:00noon and begin return trip at 2:00pm.

I have given less stops in order to reach early morning and also because it is a Mahamana SF.
If they actually introduce it more stops will be added of course.

Thanks for one more green after a week.
We are about to get a real train from Rameswaram to Ayodhya next week.
Hope this bi-weekly Mahamana also becomes real.

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
