Trichy: Rail users accorded a warm reception to the newly-introduced Rameswaram - Faizabad Shraddha Sethu Express at Kumbakonam on Monday. The first regular run of the train arrived Kumbakonam at 7.50am on Monday.
In the first week of June, Faizabad (UP) constituency MP Lallu Singh had made an announcement regarding the introduction of a new train connecting Rameswaram and Ayodhya. Member of Trichy divisional railway users consultative committee (DRUCC) A Giri had also appealed to Lallu Singh to operate the proposed train through Kumbakonam, which is otherwise called as 'Dakshina Ayodhya' (Ayodhya of South).
new train Shraddha Sethu Express was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Rameswaram on July 27. But to the surprise of delta district rail users, though the train is routed through the main line, stoppage was provided only at Thanjavur for the inaugural run. Mayiladuthurai MP Bharathi Mohan personally took the matter with the railway ministry and got an approval for a stoppage at Kumbakonam from its regular trip on August 6, 2017.
When the train arrived in Kumbakonam on Monday, Bharathi Mohan MP along with rail users, traders and other accorded a warm reception to it. The train then proceeded towards its onward journey to Faizabad.
The train will leave Rameswaram every Sunday at 11.50pm to reach Kumbakonam at 8.03am on Mondays. It will reach Ayodhya at 7.50am on Wednesdays and reach Faizabad at 8.30am. In the return direction, it will leave Faizabad on Wednesdays at 11.55pm and reach Ayodhya in 20 minutes and will reach Rameswaram at 8.50am on Saturday.

TN, GT are already filled and well established between NDLS and MAS... HWH mail and Coromandal also same with respect to travel between HWH and MAS... No need of extension of these dailies trains HWH or NDLS to beyond MAS.. Yes.. South TN needs trains and TN SK/ Thirukkural group should be made daily from CAPE/ TEN/ TN/ SCT/ RMM in various days of week for linking Delhi with south TN cities ... similarly, CAPE-HWH/ TPJ-HWH should be made daily from TEN/ TN/ SCT/ RMM/ CAPE/ KIK in various days of week for linking Kolkata with south TN cities ... My point is no need of Extension of current dailies ...

May 31 2017 (18:40)   Runaway locos cause panic among railway officials in Trichy

TRICHY: Two locomotives moved on their own for 11 kilometers from Trichy railway junction after a brake failure on Wednesday morning, causing panic among railway officials.
The locos crossed two railway stations -- Palakkarai and Fort -- and two road overbridges and a river bridge before coming to a halt at Mutharasanallur railway station, after completing a 15-minute travel.
The runaway locos didn't cause any accident as no trains were scheduled for crossing in the stretch between Trichy railway junction and Mutharasanallur railway station on the Trichy-Karur section when the incident happened.
to officials in Trichy railway division, a shunting loco pilot brought two locos (No 40441 and 16881) to platform number A1 from the loco shed to couple them with the Trichy-Erode passenger train around 5.50am.
While the technical staff were preparing to couple them, the No 16881 loco started moving due to a brake failure and pushed the other loco (No 40441). The driver realised the situation and tried to stop the loco. However, he could not stop them and jumped out of the loco.
On being informed, station manager and others tried to stop the locos by placing stones on the tracks. However, their efforts went in vain.
Control room officials were alerted who in turn cautioned the station masters of Palakkarai, Fort station and Mutharasanallur station to stop the locos.
The locos travelled on the tracks and came to a halt after passing the last stopping signal (LSS) on Mutharasanallur railway station, which is situated on the outskirts of the city, around 6.00am.
Since the loco crossed LSS, officials technically termed the incident as signal passing at danger (SPAD), which is considered to be an accident.
Divisional railway manager Udaykumar Reddy rushed to Mutharasanallur station. Later, he ordered a probe in the incident.

'Rail Neer' can be branded and popularised... but I didnot like 1] the shape of current bottle (OLD BOTTLE SHAPE AND PLASTIC WAS GOOD) and 2] color change in label (OTHER THAN BLUE) currently mixing social message of child helpline in white color ...
