Bengaluru has room for trains to everywhere but Kerala
Kochi: The Bengaluru Railway Division has put on the back burner a proposed train service to Thiruvananthapuram citing a lack of space at the stations, yet 35 trains have been rolled out to other destinations in the last three years.
A train between Bengaluru and Thiruvananthapuram was announced in the railway budget of 2014 but the service was never started. The railway honchos in Bengaluru shifted the originating station twice, saying that they were unable to fit in a new train to the

already crowded stations.
The other trains announced in 2014 have already started service, revealing the authorities' apathetic attitude towards Kerala. The Yesvantpur-Howrah A/C Express started service in January 2016, while the Yesvantpur-Katra Suvidha Express and the Yesvantpur-Jaipur trains started service in January 2015.
The South Western Railway and the Bengaluru division have started 25 express trains and 10 passengers trains between 2014 and 2017. Three of them are daily services. A Bengaluru-Visakhapatnam special train has been running for two years at the time schedule fixed for the train to Thiruvananthapuram.
The authorities who swear by a space crunch in Bengaluru started a service as late as last month. The new train from Kacheguda in Hyderabad reaches Krishnarajapuram in Bengaluru every Monday morning.
Regular passengers to Kerala suspect that the delaying tactics is a bid to help the private bus lobby to fleece the travelers to Kerala.

I guess they can easily utilise the slot and introduce one weekly from SBC-ERS/TVC using the previous slot used by Island express...........not sure if it would be preferred by passengers of ERS as it reaches late, but definitely a good option for passengers bound for ED, CBE,PGT, OTP,TCR

വിശ്രമം നിഷേധിച്ചു കൊണ്ട് ഏകപക്ഷീയമായി പുതിയ ക്രൂലിങ്ക് നടപ്പാക്കാനുള്ള നീക്കത്തിൽ പ്രതിഷേധിച്ചു നിസ്സഹകരണ സമരവും പ്രഖ്യാപിച്ചിരുന്നു. എന്നാൽ ഒത്തുതീർപ്പു ചർച്ചയ്ക്കു ക്ഷണിച്ചതിനാൽ നിസ്സഹകരണ സമരം നേരത്തെ

എന്നാൽ, മറ്റിടങ്ങളിൽ നിന്നു ലോക്കൊ പൈലറ്റുമാരെ വിട്ടുകിട്ടാത്ത അവസ്ഥയാണ്. തിരുവനന്തപുരം ഡിവിഷനിലെ ലോക്കോ പൈലറ്റ് ക്ഷാമം മൂലം ഗുഡ്സ് ഓടിക്കുന്നവരെ ഉപയോഗിച്ചാണു പലപ്പോഴും മെയിൽ, എക്സ്പ്രസ് ട്രെയിനുകളോടിക്കുന്നത്. 102 പേർ വേണ്ടിടത്തു 80 പേരാണുള്ളത്.

भारतीय रेल एशिया का सबसे बड़ा रेल नेटवर्क है और विश्व का चौथा। पूरे देश में रेलवे पटरी 92,081 किलोमीटर में फैली हुई है, जो 66,687 किलोमीटर को कवर करती है। हर साल यहां अरबों की संख्या में लोग रेलवे से सफर करते हैं। आंकड़ों के मुताबिक 2015-16 में केवल 8 अरब (8.107 बिलियन) से ज्यादा लोगों ने ट्रेन से सफर किया था। लेकिन क्या कभी आपने सोचा है कि सफर के दौरान जो जंक्शन, टर्मिनस और सेन्ट्रल स्टेशन आते हैं उसका क्या मतलब होता है, शायद आपका जवाब हो नहीं। चलिए आज हम आपको बताते हैं इनके क्या मायने होते हैं। जानिए इनके बारे में...
- पूरे देश में 8,000-8,500 तक रेलवे स्टेशन बने हैं, जहां से करीब 22 मिलियन लोग

हर दिन सफर करते हैं।
- इन रेलवे स्टेशन को मूलरूप से चार भागों में बांटा गया है।
- टर्मिनस
- सेन्ट्रल
- जंक्शन
- स्टेशन
क्या होता है टर्मिनस या फिर टर्मिनल?
टर्मिनस या फिर टर्मिनल, जिसका मतलब होता है ऐसा स्टेशन, जहां से ट्रेन आगे नहीं जाती है। यानी कि जिस दिशा से ट्रेन उस स्टेशन पर पहुंचती है, दूसरी जगह जाने के लिए उसे उसी दिशा में वापस आकर फिर से गुजरनी पड़ती है।
उदाहरण:
छत्रपति शिवाजी टर्मिनस (सीएसटी)
लोकमान्य तिलक टर्मिनस (एलटीटी)
कोचीन हार्बर टर्मिनस
इस तरह से भारत में कुल 27 टर्मिनस स्टेशन हैं।

With a view to improving the public transport system in the State, the government has given clearance for the implementation of the ambitious Rapid Rail Transit System (RRTS) for the 125.65-km stretch between Thiruvananthapuram Central and Chengannur.
Aimed at short-distance commuters, the RRTS (Suburban Railway Project) will ensure hassle-free movement of office-goers and students and to free long-distance mail and express trains from daytime commuters.
The Transport Department, issuing the orders on April 22 granting the administrative sanction for Phase I of the RRTS using existing rail infrastructure, has cleared formation of a

Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) to take the Rs. 3,095.63-crore project forward.
The RRTS figures first on the priority list of the cost-sharing of “viable” projects to be executed through a joint venture company, Kerala Rail Development Corporation Ltd. (KRDCL), with 51:49 equity between the State and Railways. A board meeting of the KRDCL on March 14 had decided to take the RRTS as the first project for execution.
In-principle clearance
The decision was based on the recommendation of the March 4 Joint Steering Committee’s “in-principle” clearance for the RRTS to the government. Mumbai Railway Vikas Corporation Ltd. (MRVCL) had carried out the feasibility study and prepared a Detailed Project Report for the RRTS over three years ago.
The orders issued by the Transport Department had been forwarded to the Railway Board to get their mandatory administrative sanction, official sources told The Hindu .
As mobilising resources is a Herculean task, sources said the government was considering to take out the 67 overbridge and underbridge needed in the corridor and execute it under a separate scheme. This would bring down the cost by Rs. 800 crore. The funds for overbridge and underbridge would be made available from the KIIFB.
The government has provided Rs. 36 crore of the Rs. 50 crore as the State’s share towards the initial equity to the JVC as per the pact signed.
