I guess it is. For new year, they ran YPR-Vasco-YPR. And the day it arrived, that rake was given as spare to 12658.. now taken away for this weekend.. again for Republic day YPR-BGM-YPR will run.. so even then 12658/12627 will be rescheduled.. there's a severe shortage of coaches with SWR I heard

It may serve. If not occupied Auto-upgrade may happen, giving berth's to RAC ones. & Why do unnecessary shunting activities for Removal & later Attachment of Single coach.

If this tentative Timetable gets regularized, then i would say Southern Railway Again Totally ruined this train. It can leave CAN by 1700hrs and can arrive MAQ by 1930hrs. Halt time at MAQ can be reduced thus travel time also. CAN to MAJN distance of 132km double electric line with empty slot , there is no need of so much slacked and tiring schedule.
And in return, 16511 is getting more pathetic schedule between MAQ-CAN , with two trains 16860 and 16605 with double amount of halts overtaking it.

16511 MAQ departure is 6:40 & 16513 MAQ departure is 7:00. Doesn't that mean Karwar Portion will be at front while arriving at MAQ from SBC ?

If it has to be that way then they'll have to do a lot of shunting at SBC end which I don't think they will. So for four days a week, Karwar portion will be at the back while arriving at MAQ mostly. And since 16511 has enough slack from MAQ to CAN, it won't make any difference if it departs even 90 minutes behind schedule.

SBC Already handles one such type of Rake Shunting around activity Ex: Rani Chenamma & its Slip. Same can be followed for this one. Rules needed to be followed is Shunt one Portion first & then Second instead of whole at once. Only thing that change i suppose is Reverse CC (Like 12133/34 case) on via YPR days. Just a Guess, I may be wrong also....

With change in TT. Karwar Portion now departs early/earlier than Kannur Portion.at MAQ. No Shunting & all required.. Also Advancement of Timings from SBHR to MAQ. & Somewhat little early arrivals till BTJL.

Sadly, it will trail 56640 all the way and thus run slower than the passenger.

One steel Girder was placed between TRIP SHED END and Binny Mill stabling yard which is situated south of SBC and another will be placed in a day or two. This has been done without affecting road traffic mainly during mid night

Aren't there any heavy vehicles plying on this route ? Bridge seems to be very low.

................
Finally some work has begun for new stabling lines on the Binny Mill land. 2 bridges are being built over the Binny Mill road - the road connecting Binny Mill to Goods Shed Road. You can see the 2 structures ready to be installed on the foundation. The stabling line work too is coming along well. The peripheral wall
...
more...
is being built and the earth works are underway. You can also see a lot of empty space available for further works. The blue shed seen is the SBC ETS. The land exchange happened many years ago. Railway funds being available now, this work has started, as can be seen in pics 1 -14.
.
The land the state got (state exchanged land and also gave railways extra money) is also being used, but that work is in much more advanced state. This land is near the rear entrance of SBC and will be used for Okalipuram eight lane signal free corridor. The Okalipuram flyover will ease congestion towards the rear entry of SBC. New railway bridge towards YPR from SBC (PF 8, 9, 10) is being built too as part of this project, as can be seen in pics 15-22.

You can see in the main post, lot of land available. Not sure if they have been given to IR; and if just a portion is being used for this work as per funds available.
Work is still on, so must surely be for longer rakes. Things will be clear in a few months.
But what is clear is a lot more is planned I guess, because 2 bridges are being built for just shunting them from SBC to this yard - must be expecting a lot of activity on this side.
