Had Tambaram to Tirunelveli (12631)trip on 7-OCT-2016 - coach B5.
AC broke down just before Trichy. AC attendants quickly jumped into action and tried to fix issue in under carriage AC components.
Since it is not accessible while train stopped in platform , they used every crossing to get down and access the under carriage from trichy to madurai. But in vain....
with support from technicians in Madurai, they fixed the AC. Showed great responsibility.
Had a chat with AC attendants about their view on LHB's Diesel guzzling EOG cars compared to current ICF coaches.
Their view "When compared to the maintenance cost/burden of current ICF AC coaches and its ICF rakes's tons of batteries,
LHB's EOG Diesel guzzler wont be that bothering....."

Now Pandian express got LHB coaches with EOG car. Now burden of AC coach axle generators removed for its Loco.
So Pandian's WAP-7 should be given to Ananthapuri express.
Because Ananthapuri has dozen more stops and WAP-7 quick acceleration will help here.

WAP 4 = WAP 7 in all terms except technology.
so WAP 4 and WAP 7 results will be same most of the time unless they are hauling BPL shatabdi or Gatiman

Had my first end to end electric loco trip on 2- APR-15 on Nellai express.
TBM -> TEN , reached TEN ON 7.15 am.
No "early morning loco change" saved me from mosquito bites(SL class) in MDU, while waiting for LOCO change which takes 20 to 30 minutes).
Reached Kovilpatti at 6.05 AM and then reached TEN at 7.15 AM.
on 31-DEC-14, KK express did Kovilpatti to TEN in 45 minutes with a WDM-3D loco, no crossings, all green signals.
Return TEN -> TBM, with usual delay of ~40 minutes , reached TBM at 7.00 AM.
Enjoyed WAP-4 acceleration on crossings.
Hope completion of doubling work between Villupuram and Dindigul will greatly improve timings.

95 % of the Chennai - Nagercoil section runs with in track. Will Electrification bring any significant time savings(apart from Loco change time ~20 min) in Nagercoil -> Chennai direction, as all trains aggregate in this route ?

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.
