I stand tall.. I travel long..I reach the foot steps of Sabarimala. I am garlanded every year. I am slogging since inception. I...
have been looking at the Railway BOard to reduce the burden on me but they always paid a deaf year to me. I am here to tell my long slogging story to that at least your tears would wash away the dirt on me which was never cleaned.<br />I am TATA/DHANBAD - ALLEPPY express. I am GODS Own train running to GODS own country.<br />I have been running to the peak right from my birth and was never praised for the duties I have done. I carry people from 6 states. I carry people to get the darshan of the Lord Ayyappa. Pilgrims never complain about me because they really the pain that am undergoing.<br />I run on single diesel track till vskp and I feel exhausted by the time I reach SCM. Lord Narasimha blesses me and pats my lil back encouraging me to go ahead and promised me that soon I would relived from the current load. <br />VSKP belongs to our family and it belongs to the Steel City Family like that our Bokarao.<br />It has promised that it would give me another friend by the end of the year. It runs between vskp and Kollam.<br />And also I over heard youngs lads here saying that there wish to have a train from Dhanbad - ERS/TVC. Hope our dream comes true.<br />From VSKP, an age old WAM series of AJJ hauls me. I always look towards the red eyed WAP4 but they grin looking me.<br />It wasn't their fault but blame the authorities who have been showing the step mother love towards me. I carry one of my friends who joins my trouble and pain and consoles right throughout the journey. his name is Dhanbad. <br />I stop @ 95 officials to greet everyone and welcome them aboard.<br />I halt at ennumerous halts waving the green flag with big smile to my brothers MAS HWH mail and Ratnachal Ex.<br />I was looked down and was not allowed to visit MAS central for some time and by passed. I was expecting some refreshments @ MAS but as said, I was looked down.<br />But Am lukcy as I get rest for an 8 hrs where as my brother HWH MAS mail has to unveil himself again to run as Coromandel. From MAS, I travel towards the southern tip carrying the piligrims carefully. I wave the beautiful WAP7's which run in the opposite direction and they honk much louder than what they are. <br />I meet my counterpart enroute and my IN LAWS who only remembers me when they are in need(Salem -Stainless Steel)<br />I am tired by the time I reach ERS in the night and take a short nap. <br />HE makes me comfortable all night and gives me showers of love(Rainfall in Kerala) all night. <br />Before I could realize that its dawn, my people are already waiting for my run.<br />I feel like shouting that I need more rest but I cant. Alas, birds who have developed wings have to leave the NEST.<br />I am starting back as my friend is ready too, but he'll accompany me till ROU and I have to travel alone from there.<br />Here, I goooooooooooooo<br />*********************<br />Posted on the words of the train to have a change.<br />This train runs to the pack and the Sabarimala season is expected to start <br />soon and hence this blog has come into picture.<br />As Always, thumbs up if you like it, thumbs down, if you dont.<br />Thank you for reading.

Generally SCR MMTS trains in Hyderabad/Secundrab area of AP has the frequency of 25 - 30-40 minutes on LPI -FM-LPI and LPI-HYB-...
class="reversehighlighted">LPI route As per Railway Ministry directive SCR is supposed to introduce MB ladies special train on Faluknuma-Lingmpalli-Faluknuma route. But wisefully SCR has just converted one of existing regular MMTS trains as MB Ladies Special. As a result without any increase in number of ladies commuters the train goes almost empty with hardly 25% utilisation with empty seats where as gap between two regulars for general passengers has increased to 70 to 80 minutes on both direction on peak hours leaving male passengers standered at all stations. As a result the MMTS Train like 47155 (FM-LPI MMTS) in morning hours and 47190 (LPI-FM) in evening hours gets extreamly over crowded at all stations. Incidently in afternoon time between 1300 and 1400 Hrs the train freqency between LPI-FM is 15 minutes but in eveing time the gap is 70 minutes between 1730 to 1840 hrs on Lingampalli -Faluknuma route.<br />The daily officer goes /passengers bound for stations like Begampet / Hitec city stations are from Falkumna/Kachiguda & long distance passenger bound for Kachiguda/Secundrabad from suburban areas are the worst sufferers. Hitec City contributes 50% of MMTS passenger tarffic as it meets the needs of Hitechies working in software park are the worst sufferers.<br />Request SCR to introduce additional MMTS trains in peak hours from Faluknuma in moring hours and at 18 hrs from Lingampalli towards Faluknuma for general passengers and to convert the MB ladies back as ladies spl in the best interest of common public and to avoid revnue loss to Rlys./
