Kannur-Byndoor passenger chugs with empty bogies KANNUR: The Kannur-Mookambika road Byndoor passenger tops the list of trains making revenue loss in terms of passenger fare under the Palakkad division. The train which started as a passenger train between Kasargod and Byndoor stations in February 2015 was extended up to Kannur on July 22 last year. “Unless the drastic revenue loss is not managed, the train is on the brink of withdrawal. The Union Railway ministry is for calling off such huge loss making trains,” said a top railway official, requesting anonymity. According to... more...
Shailendran, Kannur railway station manager, only less than 30 commuters board the train on working days from the terminal point. “On Saturdays and Sundays, the number reaches 45. On an average, we are get Rs 1,000 as passenger fare on regular days and up to Rs 1,300 on week days,” he said. The schedule is being seen as the impediment in attracting commuters. Service starts at 4.15 a.m from Kannur and reaches Byndoor by 11.40 a.m. The same train (56666) returns by 1.05 p.m and reaches Kannur at 8.55 p.m. “The train timing is not beneficial to season ticket travelers who contribute the major share of passenger revenue for a passenger train,” pointed out Zonal railway users’ consultative committee member R. Prashanth Kumar.

There is no wonder if TT is like this. If made 5:00 also will not have much occupancy I think, as there are trains like Maveli, Malabar, MAS-MAQ SF etc. May be after the Mail can leave Kannur to improve the collection.

Jun 02 2015 (11:55AM) As of know, it is running as two separate trains, the proposed timing is not possible
May 28 2015 (1:05PM) Now the running time from Kannur to Kasargod is 2 hours&20 minutes By doing so, 10 minutes can be again reduced as compensation and halting time(just 5 minutes) at Mangalore Junction and leave Managalore Junction at 8 15, which is so early at Kannur 50AM Once it becomes official to run as a single train, the proposed timing can be implemented and there will be a considerable great time saving
May 26 2015 (6:22PM) Between Kannur&Kasargod, Kannur-Managalore Passenger(56655) has 15 stops(1hr&58mts), Malabar Express(16629) has 11 stops(1hr&53mts) and TVC-MAQ Express(16347) has 9 stops(1hr&39 mts), the new Passenger Special(06607) has just 10 stops
Revise the timing of CAN-KGQ-CAN Passenger, after official full extension to Kannur. As it is a great relief that the train is extended upto Kannur and it is now serving almost complete North Malabar also. Kannur -Kasargod passenger special(06607) is leaving Kannur at 4.15am, with stops at Valapatnam (4.24am), Pappinisseri (4.29am),Kannapuram (4.37am), Payangadi (4.42am), Payyannur(4.54am), Thrikkarippur (5.01am), Chervathur (5.08am), Nileswaram (5.18am), Kanhangad (5.30am), Kottikulam(5.40am) and arrival at Kasargod at 6.35am. As continuation, from Kasargod, it will leave at 6.40AM. In return, Kasargod-Kannur passenger special(06606) is leaving Kasargod at 6.55pm, stopping at Kottikulam (7.06pm), Kanhangad (7.17pm), Nileswaram (7.21pm), Chervathur(7.39pm), Thrikkarippur (7.47pm), Payyannur (7.55pm),Payangadi (8.08pm), Kannapuram (8.18pm), Pappinissery(8.25pm), Valapatnam (8.35pm) and arrive at Kannur at 8.55pm. Between Kannur&Kasargod, Kannur-Managalore Passenger(56655) has 15... more...
stops(1hr&58mts), Malabar Express(16629) has 11 stops(1hr&53mts) and TVC-MAQ Express(16347) has 9 stops(1hr&39 mts) and the new Passenger Special(06607) has just 10 stops. Now the running time from Kannur to Kasargod is 2 hours&20 minutes for this train. This running time can be reduced to just 1hr 50 minutes, by leaving Kannur at 5.00AM(same time of Executive Express) and can reach Kasargod at 6.50AM and leave Kasargod just after 2 minutes. By doing so, 10 minutes can be again reduced by reducing long compensation and halting time(just 5 minutes) at Mangalore Junction and leave Managalore Junction at 8.05, as per the existing schedule. As the existing schedule is creating hard time to leave the train at 4.15AM, which is so early at Kannur. Departure from Kannur at 5AM is much convenient and arrival at Byndoor can be also the same at 11.50AM, with more passengers, as 5AM is more convenient departure time. Also, the train can be extended upto Murdeshwar(having 2 platforms), which is also pilgrimage/tourist centre just 30km north of Byndoor(having only 1 platform). The arrival at Murdeshwar can be 12.20PM and Departure to Kasargod/Kannur from Murdeshwar can be 13.30hrs, leaving Byndoor at 2PM and arriving Kasargod at 6.53PM and leaving Kasargod at 6.55PM as per the existing schedule and arriving Kannur at 8.55PM(existing schedule). So, there is a very good saving of time on both the journeys. As of now, it is running as two separate trains, the proposed timing is not possible. Once it becomes official to run as a single train, the proposed timing can be implemented and there will be a considerable great time saving and run as Kannur-Murdeshwar Passenger.
Hope one more Kannur-Mangalore/Murdeshwar Passenger via MAQ will be introduced in the new Time Table, expected in October-2015, as a connection to ERS-CAN Intercity Express(CAN-MAQ) and MAQ-CAN passenger at 9.45AM from Mangalore(or from Murdeshwer at 5.15AM). These trains also will run as office time passenger trains between Mangalore and North Canara, and to reduce the long time gap between Kannur and Mangalore. There are high chances that many trains will be extended and frequency/speed increased, in the new time table, rather than waiting for the new Railway Budget, including introduction of new trains.
Palakkad-Pollachi broad gauge line is expected to be completed within few days and running of new trains are expected by the end of June this year. More trains are expected from Mumbai/Konkan/Mangalore/Kannur in this route for Pollachi/Madurai/Rameshwaram/Tirunelveli. Hope these new trains will run in the first of July 2015 itself, not from October-2015. Now, tireless efforts are required from MPs from Kerala, Tamilnadu & Karnataka for these new trains.

In what could be considered as a precursor to meeting the long-standing demand for extending the Kasaragod-Byndoor (Mookambika Road) passenger train to Kannur, a special passenger train will start running between Kannur and Kasaragod on May 22. The special train (No.06607) arriving at Kasaragod station at 6.35 a.m. will continue as train no.56665 Kasaragod -Byndoor passenger train. Similarly, train no.56666 Byndoor-Kasaragod regular passenger daily train will continue its service from Kasaragod to Kannur as a special passenger train (no.06606) from May 22. Train no.06607 Kannur-Kasaragod passenger special will leave Kannur at 4.15 a.m.... more...

Finally, some respect to Erode... Its close proximity to Coimbatore and Salem always eclipsed its real potential.. Happy to see this special. Hope IR will announce another daily to Chennai other than Yercaud. If not from Erode, atleast through link from Karur via Erode.
