Make at least a new train from mangalore to Mumbai
What's the use ? After sometime the new train will also get extended to Kerala (because of SR) and Mangaluru will be back to square one. First the focus should be to get Mangaluru out from SR and get it included in either KR or SWR.
Yaa .u r right.mangalore should get out of this southern railways.
Several trains, including Mangaluru Central-Kacheguda bi-weekly, speeded up
The Southern Railway on Monday announced the new timetable effective from November 1 in which two new trains are proposed to be run via Mangaluru.
They are the bi-weekly Antyoda Express (all unreserved coaches) between Mangaluru Junction and Kochuveli and a weekly Humsafar Express (all 3-tier AC coaches) between Gandhidham and Tirunelveli.

If the season tckt holders are excluded, parasuram will have to work hard to atleast fill its seats against the jammed standing of present. If they are not there parasuram will definitely be a train of loss. There is no doubt about this fact for the public nor the railways.
If that is the case, then why is Parasuram full even during sunday.
But see parasuram after the time change. It was running not even to 1/5th of its usual passengers. Seats were vaccant. The usual passengers have lost hope in parasuram express. This is not a long distance train like netravati, mail, etc. The time was adjusted with a pleasing time in south kerala. This will definitely show the reluctance of the railway towards north keralites. We hardly have a train during the peak time while south keralites have sabari, venad, and other special trains and this cannot be held invalid and judged to be irrelevant. Now huge protest even from non-daily passengers arose today bcoz parasuram has failed keep up its time which it always did in north kerala.
I would like to bring the attention of all those members who penalised me for urfing support on the highly creative blunder that trivandrum division did to maintain its punctuality. It was better to have that extra 30 min adjusted to the north side. By this move it is very clear that passengers of north kerala are always treated in a discriminated manner by railway authorities. This is a classic example.
This is despite the recommendation made by Palakkad Division of Southern Railway
While it has been three months since Palakkad Division of Southern Railway recommended to the headquarters to extend Train No. 16575/16576 Yeshwantpur-Mangaluru Junction-Yeshwantpur tri-weekly Gomateshwara Express to Mangaluru Central, the headquarters is yet to take any decision.
Following public outcry against terminating the train at Mangaluru Junction and stiff demand by Divisional Railway Users’ Consultative Committee member G. Hanumanth Kamath to run it till Central, the Division had in June itself recommended to the headquarters to extend the train to Central.
"average of 81 passengers boarded Egmore Express every day from Central" - shows MAQ is just a dumping yard for all TN-KL trains. High time they developed a terminal in Malabar region and terminated few trains there. Simply loss to run till Mangaluru when it empties out at CAN/CLT itself.
"Even if god grants a boon, the priest wont" - goes the saying. PGT never cares for Mangaluru stations (though the main source of passenger and freight/port revenue), has now (surprisingly) agreed to shift the terminal to MAQ, but now HQ
Its time Mangaluru moves out of SR. Palghat just wants to milk all the revenues and made MAQ as a dump for all the useless trains while the only few trains for KA are not allowed to Mangaluru Central.
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...
