BENGALURU: One of the most jam-packed rail sections between Bengaluru and Chennai has become unpopular of late, thanks to the Covid pandemic. A Super Fast (SF) special launched between the two cities stands cancelled from November 21. 
The KSR Bengaluru-Chennai Central-KSR SF train (Train nos 02027/02028) launched on October 23 on all days of the week, barring Tuesday, was to be operational until further notice from the Railways. It has now decided to stop it due to poor occupancy. 
Divisional Railway Manager A K Verma told The New Indian Express, “We have been

observing occupancy in the past three to four days. The special has only AC First class seating and Chair car in it. Out of 120 seats available on first AC, it had only 7 seats on one day from our end and 25 on another day.” The overall patronage, too, was not promising at all, he added. 
“From the Bengaluru end, the train ran with just 20% occupancy while it had only 10% occupancy when coming from Chennai. Hence, we decided to stop this special,” he said. The KSR Bengaluru-Chennai Central departs from the city at 6am and reaches Chennai at 11am, while the Chennai Central-KSR Special departs from Chennai at 5.30pm and reaches Bengaluru at 10.30pm.

Exactly. Brindavan express does not have AC coaches. 23/24 non AC coaches with 108 seats will bring big relief.

The Electric Loco Shed in Arakkonam, Tamil Nadu has converted 23061/WAG5HA Electric Locomotive into AC/Battery operated dual-mode shunting loco to work in both wired and unwired sections.
Indian Railways goes green with eco-friendly loco! The Southern Railway zone of Indian Railways has added ‘Pasumai’, an environment-friendly battery-operated dual-mode shunting locomotive to its fleet. According to the Railway Ministry, the Electric Loco Shed in Arakkonam, Tamil Nadu has converted 23061/WAG5HA Electric Locomotive into AC/Battery operated dual-mode shunting loco to work in both wired and unwired sections. In the wired section, the locomotive can work in both modes, while in the unwired section, it can work in battery mode. Some of the features of this locomotive include two sets of 110, 1100 AH, VRLA

batteries, DC compressor 1000LPM, 110V DC in battery mode, three-step speed control. Here are some of the major advantages of this eco-friendly locomotive:
According to the details shared by the Railway Ministry, the locomotive offers various benefits which include shunting of 24 coach empty rakes on the unwired tracks with great ease, reaching the breakdown spot even when OHE supply is not available, and placement of locomotives in wheel lathe, in the pits for maintenance in loco sheds, etc.
Last month, the Chittaranjan Locomotive Works manufactured as many as 40 electric locomotives. In 2020-21, this locomotive manufacturing factory of Indian Railways has manufactured 135 number of locomotives in just a period of 119 working days. Indian Railways had said that this figure was achieved by CLW as against 135 locos manufactured in 122 working days in 2019-20.
The loco factory achieved this figure despite the COVID-19 nationwide lockdown in the months of April and May and the pandemic related instructions. Despite the pandemic related restrictions, the factory had created another record in producing the highest number of locomotives. In the financial year 2019-20, the factory manufactured a total of 431 locomotives.
