Devotees from all faiths attend the pilgrimage to Velankanni Basilica during the annual festival on September 8.
Madurai:
As the pilgrim inflow is expected to increase many folds for the annual festival of The basilica of Our Lady of Health at Velankanni next month, rail users from the region, especially from Tirunelveli, Tuticorin and Kanyakumari which have significant Christian population, have urged Southern Railways to operate special trains for the occasion.

year, hundreds of devotees from all faiths attend the pilgrimage to Velankanni Basilica during the annual festival in the church on September 8.
At present, Velankanni is connected to Chennai through a daily link express. The five coaches of train 16185/16186 from Velankanni will be attached with Karaikal - Chennai Egmore Kamban Express at Nagapattinam Junction. Other than that, there are two weekly trains from Ernakulam and Vasco-Da-Gama in Goa in addition to DEMU trains running between Velankanni and Nagapattinam on a daily basis. There is no direct train from Southern Tamil Nadu or Southern Kerala towards Velankanni.
People travelling from Southern districts in trains should either alight at Trichy or Thanjavur to catch another train towards Nagapattinam, the nearest town of Velankanni. So devotees from these districts for long have been asking for a daily train towards Velankanni.
"We even sent memorandums from the church in the previous year. This year also, we are planning to send a memorandum to Southern Railways and it will be of great help if special trains are announced to Velankanni," said Fr George Ponniah from Kulithurai catholic diocese in Kanyakumari.
With the annual festival falling next month, rail users have once again reiterated their demand. "Velankanni festival will begin on August 29 and lots of pilgrims from Thiruvananthapuram, Kanyakumari and Tirunelveli districts would visit the shrine during the festival. Without direct trains, they either go by buses or tourist vehicles. Hence we urge railways to operate special trains between Thiruvananthapuram and Velankanni via Nagercoil," said P Edward Jeni, secretary of Kanyakumari District Rail Users Association.

கடலூர்: கடலூர் - செந்தூர் விரைவு ரயில் கடலூரில் நின்று செல்ல வேண்டும் என கைப்பந்துக் கழகத் தலைவர் ஜெயச்சந்திரன் ரயில்வே பொது மேலாளருக்கு கோரிக்கை மனு அனுப்பியுள்ளார். மனு விவரம்; கடலூர், தஞ்சாவூர் மற்றும் நாகை மாவட்ட பொதுமக்களின் நீண்ட நாள் கோரிக்கையை ஏற்று இப்பகுதி வழியாக சென்னை - திருச்செந்தூர் ரயில் விடப்பட்டது. இப்பகுதியில் இருந்து தென் மாவட்டங்களுக்கு செல்பவர்களுக்கு வசதியாக இருந்தது. இருந்தும் முதலில் இந்த ரயில் கடலூர் மாவட்ட தலைநகரில் திருப்பாதிரிப்புலியூர் ரயில் நிலையத்தில் நிற்காமல் சென்றது. அனைத்து தொண்டு நிறுவனங்கள், அரசியல் கட்சிகள், ரயிலில் பயணிப்போர் சங்கங்களின் தொடர் முயற்சியால் கடலூரில் செந்தூர் ரயில் நின்று செல்கிறது. ஆனால், அந்த அறிவிப்பின் போது 6 மாதத்திற்கு சோதனை ஓட்டமாக நடத்தப்பட்டது. ஒவ்வொரு முறையும் தென்னக ரயில்வே பொது மேலாளர் மற்றும் திருச்சி மண்டல மேலாளரிடம் கோரிக்கையை வலியுறுத்தி நீட்டிக்கச் செய்ய வேண்டியுள்ளது. தற்போது ஜூலை முதல் தேதி முதல் செந்தூர் ரயில் கடலூரில் நிற்காது என தெரிவிக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது. இது ஏமாற்றத்தை அளித்துள்ளது. கடலூரில் இருந்து ஆன்மிக தலமாக உள்ள திருச்செந்தூர் உட்பட தென் மாவட்டங்களுக்கு அதிக எண்ணிக்கையில் பக்தர்கள் செல்கின்றனர். எனவே, கடலூர், மாவட்டத்தின் தலைநகராக இருப்பதால் நிரந்தரமாக நிறுத்தம் கொண்டு வரவேண்டும். இவ்வாறு மனுவில் கூறப்பட்டுள்ளது.
