: The
passengers of Eranad Express blocked Jan Shatabdi Express at Thuravoor railway station in Alappuzha district on Monday morning. The passengers were irked over
the railway authorities’ move to allow passage of Jan Shatabdi after halting Eranad at Thuravoor.
Due to ongoing works, the Eranad arrived at Cherthala station 30 minutes late. Further, the train was halted at Thuravoor for allowing passage
of Jan Shatabdi, which in turn, annoyed the passengers.
The regular commuters say it has become a common practice. The Eranad Express starts journey from Thiruvananthapuram at 3.35 am while Jan Shatabdi originates from the same station at 6 am.
Meanwhile, railway officials say the Jan Shatabdi was allowed a one­minute stop at Thuravoor for the benefit of
those travelling in Eranad. However, they failed to grasp the opportunity and resorted to the blockade, they added

New is half incorrect.
Ernad departed NCJ with delay of 1hour and in run it got attained another 30min late, by the time it reached Thuravoor. So point that Ernad left TVC 3.35 is baseless. JS also got almost same delay of 30min by the time it reached Thuravoor. Really bad part from passenger of ernad.
And finally because of this travellers from both the train suffered. Both the train got delayed by another 1.5 hours. For an overtake, this passenger association people stopped a train and ended up
with big delay... This is KARMA for them ;) :D

I think that is precisely the reason why so many trains are not being speeded up fearing repercussions from the numerous passenger associations.
Venad express wastes almost 2 hours right from departure from Aluva, arrival at ERS, loco reversal, lots of slack and then finally departure.
Island express has been allotted almost 1 hour between Tripunithura and ERN to cover 13 km of double line.
guess all their times have been fixed keeping in mind these daily passengers.

Leave the venad. Our Dhanbad-Alleppey. Train which departs from CBE at 11AM, reaching ALLP only at 9.15. Almost 10hour 15min for such a small distance.
Clear indication of Kerala's very bad attitude of Passenger association. There are many such trains which becomes prey of this. Like YPR-CAN, DHN-ALLP, MS-MAQ,Island.
I feel sorry for SR, they are helpless and cant do anything with speed up of our trains bcoz of such association.

There was lots of protest earlier and media highlight regarding DHN-Allp run from SRR till Allp. And in this time table they simply did one thing... They delayed the arrival at SRR by giving 2 hour running time between CBE-PGT. It now arrives late at SRR. The new time is 2:40pm & arrives ERS at 5:30pm.
Even though 3 hours is still too much, yet it is a good time for people to board at ERS going towards Allp. Two weeks back when i saw this train at ERS, i found it to be almost jampacked with daily passengers

For this daily passenger service only, a long distance train has been made to run like that in CBE-PGT run. In spite of a passenger training running behind this train. They want a long distance train.
