Railway should extend run of Mangla lakshdeep exp.from Ernakulum/cochineal to upto Thiruvanthapurm . Being a daily train,it will,to a large eextent,reduce the amount of torture being done to our Kerala express daily.

TVC is in no position to run and maintain another daily train at this point of time.

As it name says: Mangala Lakshadweep.
But this train reaches Ernakulum @10 in the morning.
And the only flight which connects to Lakshadweep Islands, India departs @10.
So, I don't think it's name is right.

This should come into action! :)

Mangala Express which was first started between Mangalore and NDLS section via ED, RU, BZA and BPL. later it was changed to Konkan railway. Ernakulam itself is a great extension for this train. few other non dailies are there to delhi from TVC which can do justice :)

Earlier it was Mangala. Upon extension, it became Mangala Lakshadweep.
So, restore Mangala Express back to Mangalore Central and ask for a new train Lakshadweep Exp from ERS or TVC or wherever you like.

Extension to TVC big No...
A clone of Kerala express(with less stops especially inside Kerala) can reduce the load of Kerala.
Extending Mangala will only increase the burden of Mangala.

Once a PNR in posted a member can predict whether it would CNF/RAC/WL on basis of availability,clearance etc etc..Say if you predict 10 PNRs & get 7 correct your accuracy is 70%.

First of all, AP Express didn't get LHB.
Secondly, its running with WAP-7 since 1-2 years, as LGD has loads of them.
Thirdly, Kerala Express needs almost good amount of WAP-7 from either ED or else RPM, as the train it self is runs on a longest route, so, RPM's WAP-7's are dedicated to a few whereas ED doesn't has neither one.
Kerala Express is doing a good work with a WAP-4 as ED n RPM has more.

Re# 789530-3            Tags   Past Edits
but sir...........AP and Kerala have the same time from Ballarshah to New Delhi.......morever there is no specific advantage apart from acceleration in getting a WAP 7 since there is no change in timetable.........WAP 4 is present even on the fastest trains on the route like MAS-NZM GR etc.........hence WAP 4 is not that bad.........

Also I wonder why there is no Rajdhani class train along the route of Kerala express. Atleast a bi-weekly TVC-NZM rajdhani express via Kerala express route is must needed. Obviously, LHB coaches for Kerala express should be given top priority.
