Though it was very Late decision but still welcome.People are worried that their quota will be reduced due to diversion via Coimbatore.
Actually CBE yields more revenue when compared to other station but still neglected for time being.To address the concern of all ,there should be a Night Train which starts from CBE TO BNG. This will benefit people of both the states.

If Cbe earns more then, they should demand a new train. They know that one more new train from CBE, it will have very low patronage.. and hence demanding other trains to stop. Like a parasite attaching to an animal and then KILLING IT

May 23 2014 (16:46)   Railway Commuters Oppose Move to Divert Trains

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The move of the Railways to divert some of the long-distance trains from Kerala via Coimbatore has come in for stiff opposition from rail users who claim that the diversion will increase the running time and also put a strain on the ticket reservation process.
“At least five trains running on the Pothannur-Irugur stretch will be diverted to Coimbatore. This detour will increase the running time by over 40 minutes. With the addition of Coimbatore in the list of stations, the reservation of tickets by passengers from Kerala will become a tough task,” Railway Passengers Association state president Paravoor Sajeeb said.
Mail, Mangalore- Chennai Mail, Kannur-Yeshwantpur Express, Ernakulam-Bangalore Express and Hoogly-Kochuveli Weekly Superfast Express are the trains which will be routed via Coimbatore, he said. However, Railways said that the detour to Coimbatore has been incorporated as the track doubling work on the stretch has been completed. “Since it is a double line now, the option of routing more trains to Coimbatore has become feasible. Also, it is a very important junction and making trains to and from Kerala pass through it will in fact benefit a lot of passengers,” said Ravichander B, Senior Divisional Operations Manager, Thiruvananthapuram Division. He also downplayed the concern that the reservation process will be further strained due to the addition of Coimbatore in the list of stations.
“We are gradually planning to bring all trains passing through the Pothannur-Irugur stretch to pass through Coimbatore,” Ravichander said.

Would it have any impact on quota ?
I mean whatever quota was there for PTJ, the same would exist for CBE isnt it?.......I assume its just change of stop. As long as quota and time is unaffected I dont think it should be an issue. But very surprised that TVC mail is having a halt. It had a non stop run between palght and erode. Not too sure what purpose it would serve wth CBE stops since bulk of passengers boarding are between tvc and thrissur. Even palghat passengers prefer allp-chennai due to higher availability.

I had this famous CBE diversion discussion with SR veterans out there.
So the alternate station, why the heck isn't it developed?
What the duck is the politician of CBE division doing?
CBE's case is almost similar to VSKP's in case, just in other the cursed moron station DVD is bit under development but still sucks.
a train is getting re-routed inside, remove alternate station as the halt as 95% of the folks take to CBE often, and if the sick heads are diverting, the rest is history on how the SR treats CBE sometimes.

Surprisingly this news has not come in any CBE news paper or Tamil sites/dailies.
I think this to be a bogus/cooked up news.
