ന്യൂഡൽഹി: ജൂൺ ഒന്നിനുതുടങ്ങുന്ന പ്രത്യേക വണ്ടികൾക്ക് കേരളത്തിൽ സാധാരണപോലെ എല്ലായിടത്തും സ്റ്റോപ്പനുവദിക്കരുതെന്ന സംസ്ഥാന സർക്കാരിന്റെ ആവശ്യം റെയിൽവേ അംഗീകരിച്ചു. നിസാമുദ്ദീൻ-എറണാകുളം തുരന്തോ നോൺ എ.സി. സ്പെഷ്യൽ ഒഴികെ മറ്റുനാലു പ്രത്യേക വണ്ടികളുടെയും ഏതാനും സ്റ്റോപ്പുകൾ ഒഴിവാക്കി.
നേരത്തേ മുംബൈയിൽനിന്ന് കേരളത്തിലേക്ക് സർവീസ് നടത്തിയ ശ്രമിക് എക്സ്പ്രസ് മുന്നറിയിപ്പില്ലാതെ കണ്ണൂരിൽ യാത്രക്കാരെ ഇറക്കിയത് വിവാദമായിരുന്നു. ഈ പശ്ചാത്തലത്തിൽ, രജിസ്റ്റർചെയ്യാതെ യാത്രക്കാർ വന്നിറങ്ങുന്നതും എല്ലായിടങ്ങളിലും സ്റ്റോപ്പനുവദിക്കുന്നതും കോവിഡ് വ്യാപനത്തിന് കാരണമാവുമെന്ന് സർക്കാർ റെയിൽവേയെ അറിയിച്ചു. തുടർന്നാണ് സ്പെഷ്യൽ വണ്ടികളുടെ സ്റ്റോപ്പുകൾ ഒഴിവാക്കാൻ റെയിൽവേ ബോർഡ് നിർദേശം നൽകിയത്.
നിർത്തിയ സ്റ്റോപ്പുകളിലേക്ക് ഇതിനകം ടിക്കറ്റ്‌ റിസർവ് ചെയ്തവർക്ക്, തൊട്ടടുത്ത സ്റ്റേഷനിലോ അല്ലെങ്കിൽ അതിനുമുമ്പുള്ള സ്റ്റേഷനിലോ ഇറങ്ങാനാവുമോയെന്ന്‌ വ്യക്തമല്ല. ഓരോ സ്റ്റേഷനിലും വന്നിറങ്ങുന്നവർ നേരത്തേ പേര്‌ രജിസ്റ്റർചെയ്യണമെന്ന് നിബന്ധനയുള്ളതിനാൽ നിശ്ചിതയാത്രക്കാർക്കുള്ള തയ്യാറെടുപ്പുകളേ സർക്കാർ നടത്തുകയുള്ളൂ. അതേസമയം, ഇനി ടിക്കറ്റ്‌ റിസർവ് ചെയ്യുന്നവർക്ക്, നിർത്തിയ സ്റ്റോപ്പുകളിലേക്ക്‌ ടിക്കറ്റ് നൽകില്ല.

week, is likely to be christened ‘Palaruvi Express.’
A request in this connection by Kodikunnil Suresh, MP, has been submitted to Union Minister for Railways Suresh Prabhu.
Mr. Suresh said in a statement that under the time table for the train, it would start at 3.25 a.m. from Punalur, leave Kollam at 5 a.m., Ernakulam at 9.45 a.m., and reach Palakkad at 1.20 p.m.
23 halts
The train will leave Palakkad for Punalur at 4 p.m., Ernakulam at 7.10 p.m., Kollam at 11.55 p.m. and reach Punalur at 1.20 p.m. The train will have 23 halts.
N.K. Premachandran, MP, said Railways had sanctioned operation of new trains on the Punalur-Edaman and New Aryankavu-Schencotta reaches of the Punalur-Schencotta sections where gauge conversion had been completed. The converted section was formally commissioned last week.
The Tirunelveli-Schencotta train will be extended to New Aryankavu for the purpose. Similarly, the Guruvayur-Punalur train and the Kollam-Punalur Passenger will be extended to Edaman, he said.

In name it is an express,but actually it is a passenger train.I think, in future number of stops should increases to nearly 25-40.For what purpose railway giving so much stops for express trains? Also Loop line stations consume more time than other stations.

Couple of months back, 16302/01 was given temporary stoppage @ STKT where both platforms are on loop line. As such Venad runs late; now Railways have an additional excuse for its late running.
Wish they designed stations in such a way that platforms are on the main line & not on loops; wish they constructed more stations like PVRD/AMPA where both up & down platforms lie on mainline.
Also the scope of increasing maximum permitted speed on loop lines from current 15 kmph to atleast 30(am not sure if this can be done
...
more...
due to technical reasons) should be explored; former DRM/TVC did try to increase the loop line speed, but didn't succeed.
PUU - PGT Express is going to be a glorified passenger; wish they classified it as FP so that ticket fares will be less!!

If remove loop track of karunagappalli (KPY)(in PF 1), Varkala(PF 1) and Trippunnithura stations, we can save about 20 minutes of Venad express and other trains and remove unwanted stops
of venad ,malabar ,island expresses.
