KOCHI: Efforts by regular passengers and passenger associations to get the Ernakulam-Shoranur passenger train (56608) running on time is finally paying off.
For the first time in the past 25 months, the train ran on time on Tuesday and didn't wait for other long-distance trains at stations on the route.
Regular passengers have been conducting various modes of protest, including sending complaints, forming human chain, wearing black ribbons and even blocking the train, about the delays.
"We

received maximum complaints in the recent past about the late running of the Shoranur passenger. While many have registered their complaints, others have directly contacted senior officers in the division over the phone or in person. So, we are checking whether the train is running on time these days,"a senior railway officer told TOI.
Meanwhile, passengers are elated over the new development. "The train did not halt anywhere and it reached Shoranur before time at 8.25pm. Its scheduled arrival is 9.05pm. We are very happy that the railway authorities have given special attention to the passenger train,"said R D Manikandan, convenor, Edappally Railway Passengers' Association.

This might be made possible only at the cost of Express(Island) and Jana shathabdi train. We need to remove the stoppages of Aleppy chennai at ERN and Angamly and Poonkunnam. Inorder to make the all service smooth.
A survey conducted by the Edappally Railway Passengers’ Association (ERPA) among the regular commuters in the Ernakulam-Shornur sector has highlighted the need for a revised schedule of passenger trains on the route.
Of the total 1,924 passengers who participated in the week-long survey, about 1,271 demanded a change in the timings of both Shornur-Ernakulam (56361) and Ernakulam-Shornur (56608 evening) passenger trains. According to the survey, a change in the timings of the train in 2013 has upset the travel plans of passengers, especially those from the relatively smaller stations.

used to depart from Shornur at 4.40 am to reach the destination by 7.10 am. Similarly, the train would start its return journey at 5.35 pm to reach Shornur by 8.35 pm. However, the Railways rescheduled the train timings under which the train starts from Shornur at 4.10 am (half an hour earlier) and return by 6.05 pm (half an hour later).
Another key demand raised by the passengers was with regard to the allotment of stops for the Alappuzha -Kannur Express (16307/16308), Ernakulam- Kannur Express (16313/16314) and Kanyakumari-Bengaluru Express (16525/16526) at the Edappally station. Besides, it also highlighted the need for renovating the second platform of the station.
The other demands upheld by the survey are that the passenger trains should not be halted to facilitate crossing and overtaking by express trains, issue of season tickets from 6 am to 8 pm in all railway stations and provision of adequate infrastructure at the Edappally station.
The results of the week-long survey will be submitted to the Divisional Railway Manager as a passenger ‘wish-list’ on Wednesday.
