We need the trains to streamlined there.

I hope we will get it in new TT as DG-MDU doubling now.

2689:needs to be speed up in KRR-TPJ!

TPJ 03:10 DG 04:30 MDU 06:00 TEN 09:00 NCJ 10:30

Pandian:

TPJ 03:20 DG 05:00 MDU 06:15

Special from Central

DG 05:15 MDU 06:30

train via ML

Should be placed between Nellai and Pothigai, so that we can get VM-CUPJ-MV-KMU-TJ towns to get fair night journey to MDU.

VM 19:00 CUPJ 20:15 CDM 21:15 MV 22:15 KMU 23:00 TJ 23:45 TPJ 01:00 dep 01:15 MDU 05:00.

So the train has to leave MS around 16:30, if has to serve ML-MDU night connection.

You have hit the nail on the head. The timings proposed by you was what I was asking for so many years.

But after track stabiises in ML, 11 hrs b/w MS and MDU via ML will do. It can start MS at 17:30 (KK's speed could be incresed because of VM-MDU electrification and KK could start MS at 18:00), reach VM at 20:00 MV at 22:30 TPJ at 1:00 and MDU at 4:30.

In return MDU D: 22:30 MS A: 9:30.

But this may not serve MS-MDU EEPs in total or they might feel discomfortable. But it must also be seen that literally there is no SLOT at MS in early morning till *:50

The schedule of MS-MDU 2793 is faster than the timings mentioned in the time-table. According to TT, 2794 MS-MDU arrives in MDU at 9.10 hrs where as the actual schedule is to make it arrive in MDU at 8.50 hrs.

It takes 1 hr and 35 min between TJ and TPJ to cover 50 Km. I think it can be made to reach MDU by 8 AM with some tweeking of the schedule

Dear Members,

The primary focus of this train is to help MDU passengers to reach Chennai. Hence any change in timings should make sure, it is shadowing Pandian between MDU and DG on either side.

More passenger or day time express services required to connect ML with MDU.

Also Meenakshi express is another option for MDU-ML connectivity.
