Electrification works on the broad gauge section nearing completion
With electrification works on the Tiruchi–Erode broad gauge section via Karur reaching the final stages, diesal engines may soon have to give way to electric locomotives.
The Central Organisation for Railway Electrification (CORE) under the Ministry of Railways, which is executing the overhead electrification works on the 140-km stretch, has targeted to complete the entire works and commissioning by January-end.
electrification project, which gained momentum in the beginning of this month, is poised for completion in a year’s time — the fastest with respect to completion of OHE works in Southern Railway zone, CORE officials say.
Ahead of commissioning, CORE has planned to carry out trial runs on the newly electrified stretch with an electric locomotive before inviting the Commissioner of Railway Safety to carry out the mandatory inspection.
As part of the electrification project, which has been executed at a cost of nearly Rs. 130 crore, CORE has installed 210 portals and some 3,500 masts along the whole stretch.
Three sub-stations have also been established at Velliyanai, Pugalur and Pettavaithalai as part of the project that kick-started in November 2016. The sub-stations works are in the final stage of completion.
Although the target for completion is set for March, CORE expedited the project and advanced it for completion and commissioning before January. “The electrification project is in the final stage, and permission for charging the line has been given. The entire works are targeted to be completed and commissioned by January last week”, said a senior CORE official.
Upon carrying out trial runs using a light electric locomotive, CORE has planned to invite the Commissioner of Railway Safety to carry out the statutory inspection along the entire stretch from Tiruchi to Erode, the official added.
Once the sanction from the Commissioner of Railway Safety comes through, electric locomotives will be introduced. At present, all passenger and freight trains operated on this section are being hauled by diesel locomotives.
The Tiruchi–Erode section via Karur will become another electrified stretch after the Chennai–Tiruchi–Madurai segment. Electrification will enable faster acceleration of trains and pave the way for operation of Mainline Electric Multiple Unit trains instead of diesel ones. Electrification works are also simultaneously underway in the Tiruchi–Thanjavur–Tiruvarur–Karaikal and Karur–Salem–Dindigul sections by CORE.

Six wagons of a goods train derailed at the Tiruchi Fort Railway Station on Thursday morning, causing disruption to regular train services in the Tiruchi-Karur-Erode section for a major part of the day.
The goods train transporting cement bags from Kallakudi Palanganatham to Ollur near Thrissur was crossing the Tiruchi Fort station, when six wagons derailed.
Top railway officials rushed with the break down special from Tiruchi Junction and took up track restoration work immediately.
Rangarajan, Divisional Railway Manager; A. S. Abdul Rahman, Additional Divisional Railway Manager; and Venkateswaran, Senior Divisional Mechanical Engineer, monitored the work.
Trains running in the Tiruchi – Erode section, including the Coimbatore – Mayiladuthurai Jan Shatabdi Express, Bangalore – Tiruchi Special, was defined at different stations. The track was cleared at 3.30 p.m. and the train services were later restored.
The railways announced the partial cancellation of the Jan Shatabdi Expresses between Tiruchi and Mayiladuthurai.
The train arrived at Tiruchi Junction in the evening, more than five hours behind schedule, later left for Coimbatore from here. The railways made special arrangements for transporting the passengers bound for Mayiladuthurai by special buses from Tiruchi Junction.
Angry passengers besieged the Karur Station Master here on Thursday when they could not get proper information on the movement of trains in the Karur-Tiruchi section.
The incoming Coimbatore-Myladuthurai Jan Shatabdi was forced to halt for close to three hours at Karur Junction.
Passengers, on their holiday urgency, were desperate to get back home and grew restive when proper information did not flow through on the time of departure from Karur Junction. Railway officials here kept telling them that once the derailment was cleared the train would be allowed to proceed.
But irate passengers besieged the Karur Station Master Sundararajan.

Railway passengers who were stranded on the National Highway in Tiruchi on Thursday.
Jan Shatabdi passengers squat on the road demanding free onward journey
Passengers of the Coimbatore-Mayiladuthurai Jan Shatabdi Express who were stranded in Karur and at Mutharasanallur on Thursday had yet another problem on board the buses in Senthaneerapuram for about an hour.
They resorted to squatting on the Tiruchi-Chennai Highway
protesting against the “refusal” of the bus crew to operate the service.
According to the crew members, the railways had not paid for the ride and the TNSTC authorities had advised them not to operate the buses till payment was made.
Shortly after the train reached Tiruchi Fort Railway station, the passengers, bound for Thanjavur, Kumbakonam, and Mayiladuthurai were asked to board eight buses belonging to the TNSTC.
Although the passengers were a bit relieved, it was shortlived. The crew stopped all the buses on the service road on the Tiruchi-Chennai Highway between the TVS Toll Gate and Palpannai. The drivers refused to resume their journey as the railway authorities had not paid for the ride.
Angry passengers squatted on the road for a few minutes.
