Aug 02 2017 (15:13) Railways eyes Rs 26k crore savings in energy costs over 10 years through electrification
Jayashree 37352 news posts
The Railways has set a target of electrifying 24,400 km of routes by 2022 to drastically decrease the use of diesel for reducing energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions. The target will be announced by Rail Minister Suresh Prabhu on August 4.
The Indian Railways has chalked out a blueprint to electrify its network over the next ten years that will result in an estimated total savings of Rs 26,400 crore on energy costs, a ministry official said. The energy bill of the public transporter is around Rs 32,000 crore a year, of which diesel accounts for Rs 16,000-18,000 crore.

TVC up to MAQ is in SR, so SR has to provide loco from their sheds only. unless of course SR decides that they need a dedicated shed to serve South TN, West coast ED/RPM/AJJ would be doing that work. Another aspect that would be taken into consideration is progress of konkan railway electrification, if that gets executed significantly faster the necessity for a dedicated shed on west coast increases further.

I am saying that if at all in future, Mangalore line starts getting Eloco all trains from TVC,ERS be it Rajdhani,Duronto,will start geting eloco. Now the only electrification part will be left is Mangalore-Verna. Since Roha-Verna section is sanctioned to L&T,then in future all trains will get Eloco of SR unless or otherwise new loco shed is not planned within Kerala, all this train will get Eloco just like Himsagar,Millenium,Swarna Jayanti,Kerala Express, Vivek,Guwahati Express, and much more trains needless to say of ED,RPM,AJJ shed.
Right now what I think is there is some problems in building of TSS at Tirur side.

The amount of WAP5 training loco pilots are getting RPM, could as well ask for few WAP5 allocation to run Shatabdi's MAS-SBC, MAS-MYS, MAS-CBE (Not sure about this one though)

Both P5 and P7 and G9 99% everything same....only gear ratio changes..P7 trained loco pilots can drive p5 also...even AJJ,jtj,erode,cbe crews can handle P5 .

Assuming this based on fact that MAS-SBC Shatabadi route is a profitable route if speeded up to a certain extend.. since Chennai-Bangalore flight doesn't provide any time advantage compared to Shatabdi because of distance from Bangalore airport to city centre. Speeded up and marketed the right way this route can take away a lot of passengers from flights.

assuming 1 hr to reach airport for some areas in SBC, 2 hrs prior check in, 40 minutes air time, 30 minutes of exiting airport i guess a train covering both the cities in 4 hours can take some of the air as well as bus passengers.
