The SR in its twitter page has given a good explanation & background for the same.The fifth and sixth lines are needed as movement of trains in the Moore Market Complex-Basin Bridge corridor is already constrained as both EMU trains as well as long distance express trains have to share the existing track.
The fifth and sixth lines will provide a separate corridor for EMU trains towards Arakkonam to ensure uninterrupted movement of suburban trains thereby reducing commuting time for passengers besides enhancing the sectional capacity.
PERMANENT AUGMENTATION OF TRAINS
The following trains are permanently augmented as detailed below:
1.Train No.16733 / 16734 Rameswaram – Okha – Rameswaram weekly express trains will be permanently augmented by one First Class AC-cum-AC 2-tier coach ex. Rameswaram from 26.08.2016 and ex. Okha from 30.08.2016.
good to see SR augmenting with non-AC coaches also !!
So i repeatedly requested to provide sectional coaches to and from PUNE jn to our south based trains ,since no southern trains are terminated in Pune ( except Pune - Earnakulam via konkan weekly)
Pune Ernakulam one weekly and a bi weekly are there
Probably a change in platform for 11041/42/27/28 will allow them to increase it to 20 coaches. At CSTM, from Pf no. 13 onwards all platforms can candle 24 coaches
Even Maintainence pitlines have holding capacity, this was the reason given by CR for a Grievance which was asked by one of the admins here..
CR has been continuously rejecting proposals for 24 coach rake for all trains bound to South from CSTM. PF and pit maintenance issues cited as concerns. this is happening only for South bound trains. If there are concerns, they can move all the trains to LTT and make them 24 coach rakes. Same reason cannot be given for years and years...
One sleeper class coach each would be permanently augmented with several trains by the Southern Railway.
An official release here said the trains which get additional coaches are; Train No. 22630 Tirunelveli-Dadar Weekly Superfast Express leaving Tirunelveli from August 24; Train No. 22629 Dadar- Tirunelveli Weekly Superfast Express leaving Dadar from August 26; Train No. 12643 Thiruvananthapuram-Nizamuddin Weekly Express leaving Thiruvananthapuram Central from August 23; Train No. 12644 Nizamuddin-Thiruvananthapuram Weekly Express leaving Nizamuddin from August 26; Train No. 22646 Thiruvananthapuram-Indore Ahalyanagari Weekly Express leaving Thiruvananthapuram Central from 27; Train No. 22645 Indore-Thiruvananthapuram Ahalyanagari Weekly Express leaving Indore from August 29; Train No. 12659 Nagercoil-Shalimar Gurudev Weekly Express leaving Nagercoil Junction from August 28; Train No. 12660 Shalimar-Nagercoil Gurudev Weekly Express leaving Shalimar
Good to see these additions done in these long distance trains. It is high time that 16381/16382 is also augmented with at least an additional sleeper or 3AC coach.
These augmentation purely based out Kerala... This clearly shows SR gave importance to Kerala as well....
The 22641/ 22642 Thiruvananthapuram Central- Shalimar- Thiruvananthapuram Central bi-weekly expresses have been temporarily augmented with one air-conditioned three-tier coach.
The additional coach will be added to the services departing from here on September 17 and 19 and from September 20 and 22 to the services departing from Shalimar.
In the news they said only 22641/42 has given additional coaches... but as the train has got complex rsa with the other trains tagged i feel they too will be benefited
