This train is becoming very poor in maintaining timings in the recent past and is being dis-respected in all the reasons.. 15th January was bad experience with delay of 2 hours when it reached coimbatore junction. This train is given less importance in all the divisions it crosses. Can the authorities regularise the timing and give due importance to this train as this is also express train. This is being overtaken, parked or ignored mostly which causes delay. The number of stopping between Trivandrum to Trichur is also very high. In the next budget atleast all these corrections to be done and ensure that this train is given due respect to run on time.

This train can be speeded up in many stretches in Kerala. The attached response from railways is kind of mixed. The reason for slack is to avoid unnecessary detention in many stretches where speed varies.
Hopefully in the near future might be improved is what the response says.

Absolutely right. This train runs like or lower than passenger train with lot of disrespect and most of the time allowed for overtaking. The train also has cushion in Trichur to PGT stretch. Railways should take immediate steps to speedup so that it can reach Bangalore 30 minutes early

The new timing is inconvenient for coimbatore passengers and it is reaching in very early hours in the morning.. Delay of atleast 30-45 mts should be ok.

Just for the CBE people, the train timetable cant be altered... This train is to cater Kerala to Bangalore.

A train is not running for a particular station friend. While changing a TT, the first thing IR will think about is, will it affect the revenue..
Ofcourse i agree that it is very early arrival, but for people from Kerala, it is welcome move..
It can't be delayed further, there are trains running behind it back to back YPR-Kannur, Managlore Mail, Alpy Express, GR (3 days). So if needed to be delayed, minimum 70min delay has to be there, which in turn will affect RSA of this train.
solution is dedicated train for CBE.

Its not a train for CBE .. U people were given so many request for diverting 16527/28 even when it was reaching CBE at odd time. So IR thought any time is fine for CBE. :P
Now its running good for us (Kerala) with good number of stoppages and timing. Let you people fight for Dedicated CBE train. Later we will fight for extending it to Malabar Region B-)
Jai Kerala.. Happy Onam

To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
