Train 16525 / 16526 must be diverted via Salem - Erode - Karur - Dindigul - Madurai - Virudhunagar - Kovilpatti - Tirunelveli - Nagercoil to reach / depart from Kanniyakumari because there is not enough trains for Salem, Erode and Karur passengers to reach the South TN. Do not talk about 16609 / 16610 and 17235 / 17236.

Yes, you are right your view and agree.even i checked list of train to South. It is very few when i wanted to reach RMM from madurai.
However Island Exp is considered to be train for Keralites.
Even for Coimbatore, No dedicated Train from Bangalore. Island is 2nd Option next to Kurla if seats are unavailable.
If i am right, there are
...
more...
some trains from CBE/ED to South TN (apart from 16609/10) such as Nagercoil Exp (16339), NCJ Passenger , TEN passenger train,Mumbai CST-Nagercoil/TEN.

not needed instead if nemom developed ISLAND can be short terminated at nemom or if KCVL YPR made daily and extended to TVC this can be short terminated at KCVL. NCJ TEN have NCJ SBC TN MDU have TN MYS and TPJ TJ have MYS MV. PDY have triweekly to sbc. RMM KKDI have no trains to sbc which needs to be adressed than this diversion

on talking of ED KRR they have CBE NCJ. once POY line opens then surely train RMM CBE and SCT CBE will be in tracks that time load of NCJ CBE will get splits making ED TUP KRR to get major share than CBE. so i dont think this is necessary. one more option possible is making NCJ CBE and ED TEN as express and introduce DEMU for intermediates.

This train is becoming very poor in maintaining timings in the recent past and is being dis-respected in all the reasons.. 15th January was bad experience with delay of 2 hours when it reached coimbatore junction. This train is given less importance in all the divisions it crosses. Can the authorities regularise the timing and give due importance to this train as this is also express train. This is being overtaken, parked or ignored mostly which causes delay. The number of stopping between Trivandrum to Trichur is also very high. In the next budget atleast all these corrections to be done and ensure that this train is given due respect to run on time.

If you're traveling with reservation by Sleeper class on this train beyond TRVL(towards TVC), you are advised to book an Upper Berth or Side Upper Berth(if you have the choice), or climb on to any vacant UB or SU berth, and stay there till your destination, as there is hardly enough space to sit on the Lower/Side Lower Berths beyond TRVL due to the number of unreserved passengers traveling on the section.
