This wont happen. Practically not possible and wont benefit people in any case. In a regular Express train if people travel, they will reach in about 1 hrs 10 min. The metro for such a huge distance of more than 70k will have many stops and practically wont benefit. The cost for 1 km is 250 crore so one can imagine what the cost will be for such a long distance. Up till Kochi airport they can possibly try but even then that will also be a huge expenditure

Departure at 4am will not serve any purpose....To reach station people will need to leave that early which I don't think will serve the purpose. I am sure railways will themselves know this. Maybe beneficial to intermediate passengers probably from Thrissur & Palakkad. But from CBE onwards again it may be vacant since CBE-SBC there are already trains like CBE-LTT, VB, Double decker at different timings which gives more flexibility to passengers boarding from there

Useful Agree
In the day time, CBE-SBC sector there are trains as follows
Uday dep 5:45
ERS-SBC Intercity-12:50pm. There are weekly trains on Sat & Sun in addition to above.

For ERS-SBC VB to be successful max passengers will have to be from ERS, TCR & PGT as passengers from CBE have lot of flexibility to travel at different timings and the crowd will get split. So its important that dep from ERS is a bit late. Public transport doesn't start reaching station is a challenge if early dep from ERS. I am not sure passengers will prefer to spend a lot of money in auto to reach at such an early time.

Will be useful. One of the biggest issues in increasing coaches for this train was the pf length. A high demand commuter train especially in North Kerala. The extension might help in increase of 2 coaches at least which will be useful to some extent

Re# 6074760-8              
A valid proposal, however one big constraint in having trains extended to these smaller stations would mean railways having to deploy extra staff in these stations just for the purpose of cleaning and maintenance only for 1 train. Similarly the electrical wing will keep highlighting loco utilisation as another point. New set of loco pilots will have to man the train in return direction so that will be Xtra cost. They will have to travel from bigger stations like MAQ to these stns and will have to be provided with some allowance. I do recollect one rail staff mentioning this that cost, utilisation of staff are all being looked at very closely by railways whenever such extensions are proposed. These are valid suggestions though

What are the constraints in merging KR with Indian Railways ? Lots of infra upgrade happening in many stations within IR whereas KR still seems far behind. Is there any special act or some other legal issues in merging it with IR ?

Everybody is asking what is the source of the information ? Nobody knows. Just one MP it seems has come out with this piece of information. Railways may need to clarify. Similar request of a new division has cropped up in CBE. They want to move out of Salem once CBE became the third highest revenue generating stn in SR. Will have to wait and see as to what is the response and update

So as anticipated.....this news is false. The railways has now come up with a clarification. No plans to close down PKD division. All this news is false.
