Does Udyan have 2 3AC coaches or 3? If its 2, then I think, it must be updated in IRI...

I regularly travel between Tirunelveli and Bangalore by this train. Invariably this train is delayed by > 1 hr each way every time. Especially 17236 - it reaches Bangalore only by 9:15 - 9:30 AM. Thats way too long. They should seriously consider speeding up this train.
Also, I think it would be useful if they could extend the Mayiladuthurai exp to Cuddalore via Chidambaram. Good connectivity to the entire stretch there.

Now that they have converted Udyan express to electric loco b/w CSTM and Daund, why not also convert to WAP4 between Guntakal and Bangalore? Prashanti Express already runs with WAP4 b/w Guntakal and Bangalore. Also, are they ever going to add a pantry car to Udyan express? I think it needs a pantry badly.

Not at all required. It would be a wastage of time and energy. The case of Prashanti is different, it undergoes a reversal at GTL. One loco detaches from one end and other loco attaches to the other end. And as of Pantry car, IR will do away with Pantry cars in all trains.

If this train is extended to Cuddalore, it will provide a good connection to Chidambaram and Pondicherry both.

    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,...
