Today (09:48)   16302/Venad Express | TVC/Thiruvananthapuram Central (Trivandrum) (5 PFs)

The venad exp shd be extended to Kannur or Kasargod or Manglore. It will enable more people frm malabar to use this train. The train requires one more rake for its extension. If this prblm is tackled, i think this will be a boon for passengers of north Kerala as they get one more day connectivity to the state capital and vice versa. No timings between Shornur and Trivandrum need to be revised because if extended, the train can easily allotted with a slot between Shornur and Manglore as there are no trains with a slot close to it and the clash of timings can be avoided.

This train should be made a daily service instead of terminating at Ernakulam on thursdays and saturdays.

How this train name became executive since more than half of this train is unreserved and there is not even one executive chair car coach (actually it is only found in shatabdis, tejas, etc.)?

Probably for the reason that it caters a lot for office goers.

Initially PM was at ERS. Hence it ended its service for PM. Now with RSA's PM is been moved to TVC. So ideally train should now go till ALLP and also they can get free, two train numbers

From my experience on 12685/12686 jerk i have noticed during CBC Rake days, in LHB jerks have been far less. Ride comfort in AC is smoother and silent, while in SL initially days sound was a little disturbing. One thing surely missing in LHB was the side-wise oscillation. Quality of interior, is much better, but then it depends on whether you are allocated a fresh rake or used second hand rake as is the case with 12685/12686 where there is lot of plumbing issues and issues with windows etc with lot of jugaad fixes.

Need to verify the current rakes (i believe some of the coaches from Pandyan/Cholan/Rockfort had been swapped into the rakes these days - observation based on return to MDU markings), when it was originally converted, it did have coaches from other zone as part of the rake, especially it had a lot of second hand one's 2-3 years old (Even had advertising in Hindi for restaurants and clinics from north).

Kerala sampark kranti should be made a daily train with its existing time table. This will help passengers headind to and fro delhi and kerala. Other trains which share its slot in both directions should be changed.
