പരിഷ്കാരം കേരളത്തിൽ ഫലപ്രദമാകില്ലെന്നും ഇതു യാത്രക്കാരെ ബുദ്ധിമുട്ടിലാക്കുമെന്നു മാത്രമല്ല റയിൽവേയുടെ വരുമാനത്തിൽ ഗണ്യമായ കുറവു വരുത്തുമെന്നും ഇരു ഡിവിഷനുകളും ചൂണ്ടിക്കാട്ടിയതിനെത്തുടർന്നാണ് ദക്ഷിണ റയിൽവേ വിട്ടുവീഴ്ചയ്ക്കു തയാറായത്. സ്ലീപ്പർ ടിക്കറ്റ് വിതരണം പാലക്കാട് ഡിവിഷൻ നിർത്തലാക്കിയിരുന്നെങ്കിലും തിരുവനന്തപുരം ഡിവിഷൻ കാത്തിരിക്കുകയായിരുന്നു.
