RANIPET: The Ranipet railway station, one of the first in the southern part of the country along with Royapuram in Chennai, will soon spring back to life as Southern Railway has been taking steps to operate goods trains from Ranipet to other parts of the country.
The station has been lying idle for long since metre gauge sections were abandoned several years ago. Then, the section between Ranipet and Walajah Road stations was converted to broad gauge but remained without any locomotives chugging on.
Recently, top railway authorities, including Assistant General Manager (AGM)
of Southern Railways DG Mallaiah and Divisional Railway Manager, Chennai, P Mahesh, inspected the 100-year-old station as part of efforts to operate goods trains.
There is a potential for ferrying fertilisers from local companies to other parts of the country. “We are looking to operate goods trains to ferry fertilisers. We see the potential for it,” a senior Railway officer told TNIE. Business opportunities for transporting four-wheelers can also be explored as certain car companies operating in Kancheepuram district, bordering Ranipet district, are sending consignments to northern parts of the country.
Naina Masilamani, member of divisional rail users consultative committee, said that the efforts to operate trains from Ranipet station should be expedited as it will help improve commercial activity in the region.“It is a 100-year-old railway station and a historically important one.
Steps for operating goods trains should be expedited as it will lead to a lot of commercial activities,” he said. It has been an industrial hub since  British Raj . The new district with Ranipet as its headquarters came into being from November last year.

Dec 05 2018 (13:02)   Chennai Mainline Electrical Multiple Unit rakes to have bio-toilets from March

CHENNAI : From March onwards, rail travel from Chennai to Tirupati, Jolarpettai and Nellore by local trains, is set to get better with the Railways having begun fitting bio-toilets in Mainline Electrical Multiple Unit (MEMU) rakes recently. To begin with, six coaches of Chennai - Arakkonam MEMU local and one coach at the centre of seven MEMU rakes, has been fitted with the toilets two weeks ago. The MEMU rake of Chennai - Arakkonam local, is run as an Express train between Arakkonam and Jolarpettai.
According to official sources, the Avadi MEMU coach maintenance shed holds 11 MEMU rakes each, comprising of two motor coaches and six trailer coaches. The official said,”Bids have been invited to install bio-toilets in 66 trailer
coaches of MEMU rakes maintained at Avadi shed. Each trailer coach will be provided with two toilets. Works to clean the toilets also will be outsourced,” said a senior Railways official from the Mechanical wing.
Though it has been a month since toilets have been installed in select rakes, many are yet to be thrown open for public and often remain closed owing to issues in water filling and lack of infrastructure facility in cleaning the toilets. “We have just begun to create dedicated water filling points for bio-toilets at Arakkonam, Katpadi, Vellore and Tirupati. We expect the works to get completed by March next year,” added a Railways official.
On right track
 Avadi car shed holds 11 MEMU rakes
 Chennai - Arakkonam MEMU rake fitted with toilets recently
 A rake comprises 6 trailer coaches and two motor coaches
 Railway to install toilets in 66 coaches
 Each trailer coach to get two toilets
 Each MEMU rake runs three to five services a day, covering a distance of 350 to 400 km a day
 The trains run in Chennai - Arakkonam, Arakkonam - Jolarpettai Express, Vellore Cantonment - Beach, Beach - Tirumalpur, Katpadi - Salem, Chennai - Tirupati, Tirupati - Nellore and Nellore - Chennai
 Many newly fitted toilets yet to be thrown open to public due to issues in water filling and lack of infrastructure facility to clean the toilets

Instead of conventional ICF rakes a MEMU/DEMU will be a good option. When operating DEMU as special from Chennai Egmore to Tirunelveli( i guess) recently why not a short distance is possible
Loco reversal not a big issue just for two days as special train easily they can do.
