Make at least a new train from mangalore to Mumbai

PERMANENT AUGMENTATION OF TRAINS
The following trains are permanently augmented as detailed below:
1.Train No.16733 / 16734 Rameswaram – Okha – Rameswaram weekly express trains will be permanently augmented by one First Class AC-cum-AC 2-tier coach ex. Rameswaram from 26.08.2016 and ex. Okha from 30.08.2016.
Pune Ernakulam one weekly and a bi weekly are there
Probably a change in platform for 11041/42/27/28 will allow them to increase it to 20 coaches. At CSTM, from Pf no. 13 onwards all platforms can candle 24 coaches
Even Maintainence pitlines have holding capacity, this was the reason given by CR for a Grievance which was asked by one of the admins here..
CR has been continuously rejecting proposals for 24 coach rake for all trains bound to South from CSTM. PF and pit maintenance issues cited as concerns. this is happening only for South bound trains. If there are concerns, they can move all the trains to LTT and make them 24 coach rakes. Same reason cannot be given for years and years...
One sleeper class coach each would be permanently augmented with several trains by the Southern Railway.
An official release here said the trains which get additional coaches are; Train No. 22630 Tirunelveli-Dadar Weekly Superfast Express leaving Tirunelveli from August 24; Train No. 22629 Dadar- Tirunelveli Weekly Superfast Express leaving Dadar from August 26; Train No. 12643 Thiruvananthapuram-Nizamuddin Weekly Express leaving Thiruvananthapuram Central from August 23; Train No. 12644 Nizamuddin-Thiruvananthapuram Weekly Express leaving Nizamuddin from August 26; Train No. 22646 Thiruvananthapuram-Indore Ahalyanagari Weekly Express leaving Thiruvananthapuram Central from 27; Train No. 22645 Indore-Thiruvananthapuram Ahalyanagari Weekly Express leaving Indore from August 29; Train No. 12659 Nagercoil-Shalimar Gurudev Weekly Express leaving Nagercoil Junction from August 28; Train No. 12660 Shalimar-Nagercoil Gurudev Weekly Express leaving Shalimar
Good to see these additions done in these long distance trains. It is high time that 16381/16382 is also augmented with at least an additional sleeper or 3AC coach.
These augmentation purely based out Kerala... This clearly shows SR gave importance to Kerala as well....
