Kindly provide your opinions and flag on this Time Table, an attempt to modify the time table of cholan superfast, which serves as a day express in mainline. What is the use when the direct option is not in the initial preference? That doesn't mean they are not travelling in cholan, and cholan having excellent foot fall for Thanjavur, timings wise it is not at all convenient currently (atleast timings wise now 22675 Cholan Superfast seems lot better for Chennai - Thanjavur, though departure can still be preponed by 15 - 30 mts)
Time Table was curated in such a way that both cholan superfast crosses at Thanjavur, so a crossing in single line section can be averted.
For Thanjavur, this is the only direct intercity kind of day train to chennai. Even though it got speeded up and became superfast express, timings wise for Thanjavur, entire day gets wasted if one takes this train, making people to go for other options like Tejas from Trichy (much faster since Trichy is just 1 hr from Thanjavur and there are many connection trains) and Vaigai/pallavan/guruvayur express from Ariyalur (Ariyalur railway station is just 40 kms from Thanjavur by road and for connecting pallavan express, 2 buses from Thanjavur old bus stand directly goes to Ariyalur railway station, even byepassing Ariyalur bus stand.).
This time table is modified in such a way that it serves as an intercity express in true sense for people of Thanjavur as well, in such a way that one can board this train after having lunch and get down at night in chennai, instead of wasting the late part of forenoon at Thanjavur. Currently the timings are kind of acceptable for Kumbakonam and beyond and not for Thanjavur. One hour postponement of the departure from Tiruchirapalli, behind Janshatabdi would serve very much useful for people of Thanjavur as well.
Based on an assumption that it will get rake with CC 2S composition, posting this CC.
