Slowing down Kannur-YPR Train 16528
This is with slowing down Train No. 16528 from Kannur-Yesvanthpur. The earlier arrival time at YPR was 7:15AM, this has been now changed to 7:55AM.
I have been travelling in this time from quite a while and these days its frustrating, reason being the train arrives just before Banswadi station by 6:10AM and from there the endless wait starts. The train just does not get the clearance owing that its arrival time at YPR is at 7:55AM and thus crawls to YPR allowing the other onward trains
such as the YPR-Hosur passenger etc to pass through and fiinally reaches YPR.
It takes around 2 hours to just travel approx. 15 kms.. and this is just frustrating.
Wondering why was this change done...

Yes, it is very much frustrating to tell the least.
I was travelling in this train today and it had reached BAND around 6.05 and was made to wait for about 30 minutes before allowed to enter the platform at BAND, where it was made to wait for another 15 minutes to allow YPR-HSRA passenger to pass.
Then, just after passing HEB, it was made to wait for another 30 minutes to allow YPR-TPTY Fast passenger to pass.
reason for slowing-down this train could be speeding up of 12863, which arrives YPR @ 7.15, which earlier was arriving @ 7.55.
Due to all these, there is no platforms available at YPR and the passengers of this train are the ones badly affected.
I had started to look at 16525 as alternate option. But only problem is that you should book exactly on the date booking opens for a journey on a sunday.

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . 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,...
