Thiruvananthapuram: Many passenger trains would be converted into Express trains, the Railway Ministry said. Passenger trains that run beyond 200 km per day will be converted into Express and in Kerala more than 10 trains will become Express. These trains will be speeded up and their halts curtailed. More than 500 trains across the country would be converted into Express trains, the Ministry said.
However, it is not clear if the decision by the Railways is a temporary one during the Covid pandemic times or a move to reduce the number of passenger trains and stop it. The zonal railway offices have been directed to take a decision on this within 2 days.
Good decision,but unless speed is increased and run time is reduced, we will end up paying Express fares for a passenger train
Don't reduce the stops between Nilambur and Shornur when converting to Nilambur Kottayam Passenger Express.
Madurai punalur fast passenger will be good as if splitting up as MDU TVC EXP and Trivandrum Punalur Passenger
Bad decision for local Passengers.
