A NOTE TO ALL VIEWERS :- This is a post of a video; a Journey compilation; every tag in this post is appearing in the video, not tag is random, if anyone feels any tag is unnecessary, please do watch the video first and then point out errors if any. Thank you.
In a sudden trip to Trichy, right in the middle of the monsoon season, the Mysore Mayiladuthurai Express is taken to Tiruchchirapalli; but what is not foreseen is the amount of rains that will lash out and the lightning and thunderstorms that will accompany. The indication is given while at Bengaluru City Jn itself; with Lightning making its presence felt. As the journey progressed; rains started lashing out no
sooner had the train departed from Hosur and continued all the way upto Karur late into the night. Fierce spurts of lightning could be seen every now and then. At Kelamangalam, Kongu Express bound for the national capital was looped for us to cross. We reached Salem Junction at a few minutes to midnight; and here Chennai bound Blue Mountain Express and Bengaluru bound Ernakulam Bengaluru Superfast Express crossed us. An hour later; we find ourselves at the ever busy Erode Junction; where as many as 3 trains are sighted in a span of 20minutes that we take for loco reversal, the Bengaluru bound Kannur Yeshvantpur Express; Trivandrum mail from Chennai and Chemmozhi express bound for Coimbatore. While departing after Loco reversal; the announcement for a fourth train also was occurring; the Mangalore Chennai Superfast Express. After Erode, its a sedate run till we knock the gates of Trichy; delay is maintained. At Trichy an array of locos including localites - WDM2; WDP3A and WDP4D of GOC shed welcoming us at the wee hours of the morning.

It should run as a separate train. This will save around 1hour and 30 minutes. This will make the train reach Banglore around 0630. This will also free the karwar train which can run with present timing.

By giving 16527/16528 LHB coaches, SWR should use the left back ICF coaches to run 16517/16518 as a separate train and attach the slip coaches to 16523/16524 there by giving 2 night trains to Banglore via Manglore. The changes should be made in the timetable of both trains.

Noticed many times. They will be waiting for the arrival of the train, before passengers leave they start the operation. Much appreciated.
Dont know the exact reason. The same platform (southside) will be shared by Shornur passenger also later. This platform will be blocked by these two trains upto evening.
