Tirur is no where near ready, but then they don't plan to convert Konkan bound trains immediately, biggest problem now cited is shortage of loco (RPM is getting 4 new WAP7 this month, more might be planned need to watch allocations, not sure about loco transfers from other sheds).
Its ok to remove loco links for passenger trains temporarily, since any way there is plans to convert some/if not all of these passenger trains into MEMU, freeing up loco as well as rakes to be used else where in SR like the Coimbatore-Pollachi, Palakkad-Pollachi, Punalur - Sengkottai (When the guage conversion completes this year).
Infact

more...
i like this MEMU idea, then Calicut - Thrissur Passenger can be even extended to Guruvayur, since there is no loco reversal involved in this operation..

Naturally; saw a letter Thrissur MP demanding stoppages @ Wadakkancheri, Poonkunnam, Pudukad, Chalakkudi, Irinjalakkuda etc.
Considering that 16791/92 stops at places like Perinad & Ochira, such demands are truly justified.
Despite granting stoppages everywhere, IR is retaining its 'Express' status!!

demand is justified. TT can also be justified even with more stops. But only category 'Express' can't be justified.
Just because MP wanted Express, railway had put in that category. And railway will be happy, because they are getting express fare.

Re# 2241202-6            Tags   Past Edits
Very Correct. As per the attached news clipping, railways says that it runs with passenger service timings in Punalur kottayam section. If that be the case, why express fares is being charged from passengers,
It is something that definitely needs to be highlighted to railways. And with the timings that it has, i dont think it will slow down even of more stops are given in ERN-TCR sector .

Apr 06 2017 (06:56)   Kudla Express to run from Mangaluru Junction

Entry# 2224203   News Entry# 298688         Tags   Past Edits
Originally, it was announced between Mangaluru Central and Bengaluru
Residents of the coastal districts appear again to be losing the benefits of a train, Kudla Express, as Southern Railway has refused to take the train to Mangaluru Central citing lack of platforms and stabling yard and instead offered to operate it from Mangaluru Junction.
Train No 16575/16576 daily express as originally announced by the then Railway Minister D.V. Sadananda Gowda, was to run between Bengaluru and Mangaluru Central. Southern Railway, under which Mangaluru falls, had then concurred to the timetable.
Once

the Bengauru-Hassan new line was commissioned, South Western Railway proposed to re-route it as a tri-weekly via the new line to drastically reduce the journey hours.
To South Western Railway’s proposal that the train can start at 10.50 a.m. from Mangaluru instead of the original 6.30 a.m., Southern Railway said that slots were not available at Mangaluru Central.
Not of much use
Residents of Dakshina Kannada and Udupi feel that Kudla Express operating from Mangaluru Junction is of no use.
While Mangaluru Central is located in the city having public transport facilities, Mangaluru Junction is located far away without city bus facilities, and passengers are left at the mercy of unscrupulous autorickshaw operators.
Dakshina Kannada MP Nalin Kumar Kateel too had appealed to Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu to operate it from Mangaluru Central. West Coast Railway Yatri Abhivriddhi Sangha advisor Anil Hegde termed the decision as unfortunate saying that people would not benefit.
R.L. Dias, president of Udupi Railway Yatri Sangha, had filed a public interest litigation petition before the High Court of Karnataka, seeking early introduction of Kudla Express. The South Western Railway had promised the court to commence the services before March 31, 2017.
Slot and stabling yard
Southern Railway’s Palakkad Divisional Railway Manager Naresh Lalwani said that it is practically impossible to take Kudla Express at Mangaluru Central for lack of platforms and stabling yard (overnight parking facility) till the work on a new platform is completed.
Already schedules of existing trains are getting affected following intensive track and bridge maintenance works. Getting one more train to Mangaluru Central would severely affect punctuality of trains, he said.

Even MAJN is in SR. It is high time for State govt to improve connectivity to MAJN. Since there are many long distance train halting at MAJN, for benefit of people, they should improve the road connectivity to MAJN. And this will also help SR to consider MAJN has 2nd terminal station of Managlore

Road leading to MAJN is only criteria for SR to consider a station as an important one?

not reason enough for SR to develop MAJN?

The PF and lighting at extreme ends, even for the basic PF1 shows that SR- considers Mangaluru as a milch cow for freight earnings and cares nothing for the passengers. And who is to blame for not re-naming Mangalore as Mangaluru at all places inside the station premises?

I guess, you got me wrong here. I am not speaking about MAJN station development. That is something which SR has to take care, which is something which they are neglecting.
Now the main problem for a passenger is connectivity from Mangalore city to MAJN station. And this, state govt has to take care for the benefit of passengers.
If you consider KCVL, road connectivity to station was bad. But state govt arranged buses. Now there are KSRTC(Kerala) as per the train arrival timing. So passengers are benefited because of this feature.
...

May be something like that can be done from Karnataka side. Not just in KCVL. In Kannur, for JS and Executive Express, Kerala SRTC buses are there to take passenger considering the odd arrival time. So even state should also take some responsibility.
And btw, don't get me wrong. I am great fan of KarnatakaSRTC. Was impressed with their transport system, especially Airvat series..

Ok. What I was told by a friend was - the buses private/govt stops some half a KM away from MAJN. Autos rule. Prepaid counter was started but closed due to some differences between SR and city corporation.
-
If the above is accurate, then the blame is of the city corporation and SR. But state is not to blame here, since having visited cities like Ballari, Tumakuru recently, which are smaller than Mangaluru, I saw that the local corporations with consultation of bus corporation and SWR, do ply buses from

station entrance to other parts of the city.
