The Railway Board has cleared the decks to operate three new express trains announced in the railway budget 2013-14 from June.

There is also a possibility of diverting Mannai express via TVR, and splitting it as MS/MQ and MS/VLKN at TVR itself. Once the train reaches TVR from MS, VLKN slip will be detached, MQ slip will proceed and another Loco will pull the VLKN slip on the opposite direction.

diversion of mannai is expected at any time but not possible to attach VLKN-MS link exp,SR will do clever thing by splitting TJ-MS and VLKN-MS at MV so they can give 20 coach train for (10+10) combo or for sake of TJ(12+8) may be possible,they wont disturb kamban's RSA and mannai's RSA.....

T.R.Baalu requested Railway Minister to introduce daily trains from Tanjore to Chennai, Mannargudi to Coimbatore, Vailankanni to Chennai and Karaikudi to Chennai and convert the tri weekly Pamani Express (Mannargudi to Tiruppathi) as a daily service.

I sent a request to Southern Railways through our MLA Mr. T.R.B.Raaja to introduce slip coaches from Thanjvaur to Mayiladuthurai to be attached on Mannai Express and to divert Mannai Express via Tiruvarur Mayiladuthurai.

Yes I do agree with you. A separate ONT is the need of the hour. This is a first step towards that. The very urgent issue is, due to loco reversal at Needamangalam, the railway gate on the National Highways is closed for more than 20 minutes both morning and evening. So people approached the High Court.

    -@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.
