Some Stunning Pics of Shoranur - Nilambur Rail Route Received through Whatsapp for Promoting Rail Tourism in this Route .
There was a tour Package to explore this route and two districts of Kerala and Railways even agreed to attach an extra coach in SRR-NIL Passenger specially for this tour Package. But unfortunately ,due to less popularisation ,the package now stands cancelled.

Boss, rajyarani has PM at TVC .
Also will Nilambur able to provide enough passengers to long distance trains? I dont think so.
Something like NIL-MTP can be tried

I did not demand long distance.
Why cant mangalore or pollachi trains from nilambur ?
A lot of people will be there if its to coombatore also.

I agree..... the passenger which starts frm nilambur at 0910 can be extended to manglore. In the return journey next day it reaches nilambur at 1835. So no loss for the people but an extension has happened.

~~~~~~A Series of pictures from my travel diary of exploring kerala~~~~~~~~~
Journey was set admist of january,upon arrival from CBE to SRR in 22610 CBE-MAQ ICE,having atleast 1hr buffer time for this train the rest room on pf2 helped us to refresh&reload ourself and our canon's.the next thing was to find some breakfast,with so many vendors on pf selling idli,dosa,etc etc.with the hope of finding much tastier food,we moved out of the station.Yes!!! they were two hotels beside eachother opposite to station(the left one seemed to be neat and hygiene!!!!)uthappam,idyappam filled our stomachs,quickly moved back to the station where our train arriving in as 56614 to have rake&loco reversal to take us back into teak territory,well
the detach-reversal-attach took in just 15min,as we are walking towards east of the pf,ERS WDM3A towing 16305 ICE slowly marched,meanwhile our ALP for our onward journey had a quick check at the link,fuel,sanding and a 'Thumps up' from him signaled everything to the LP.(but one thing that caught my sight right from CBE was that LP'S,ALP'S of this division doesn't follow/have the usual dress code(seemed quite intresting!!))with the clock ticking to 9.18am,A funny honk from ICE loco indicated the starter was given for it,later at ATD we were to given caution to move on!!!.initially i was never had idea about the line outside of SRR towards MAQ,untill unless my hunk's turbo charger gave up the quick accelaration,believe it or not!!!!! though the ICE chugged early before our departure,we overtook it(at somepoint of time there was hardcore parallel action went on for a minute i can say,watch it from the above video(apolozies for the audio,MI NOTE audio sucks!! i agree though)action went on untill there was separtion of line,to be precise til there was speed restriction at the curve before entering neck of teak territory!!,the 'TEKKU '(:P:P) leaves was large &near as if they would slap on your face who stands at door for doorplating(wonder why government planted them jus aside of the line,post deforestration from britsh)hmmm!! hope rest of the story can be understood from my pictures(the saddest part of this journey was to know that i lost 1gb of data while i was transferring pics from mmc card to my lappy!!these are solely pics from my bro MI mobile left to show that i was part of mesmerizing part of the journey till Nilambur,later we moved to nilambur busstand around 11:15am where we took a bus to thiruvambady(via kakkadampoyil)only bus which travel through the ghat.i strongly recommend one to take this route those who come for a short trip to this branch line

Nilambur-Shoranur Passenger-Full journey :A Trip to Cherish :)
After visiting this place last year(/blog/post/785691),I was determined to visit again and I did just that this year..But what I saw at the station was disheartening..Development has taken its toll on the sheer beauty of the station.. Conventional light signals stands proudly where Semaphores ruled for decades..old manual track switching cabins were demolished..old station building bears a deserted look..platform 1 was empty as all the pass trains now arrive on pf 2..but whatever remained had a charm to it..The only thing that hasn't changed one bit is the route to shoranur.
trees still dominate the route and the greenery still remains..The route is still dominated by ERS alcos.For a railfan the best seat in the house is the first/second coach..one can hear the Alco chug its heart out along with frequent eruptions when they negotiate some monster gradients enroute.
Here we go:Part 1/3
pic 1,2:ERS alco gracefully negotiate the points as it heads towards the new pf 2
pic 3,4:shunting time...ERS Alco says Hi to his partner and proceeds to the other end
Pic 5,6 The journey Starts :)
pic 7:Its all green
Pic 8:curving
Pic9:Green everywhere:untouched :)
Pic 10,11:The first station and the one of the two crossing stations enroute
