Vivek Exp is also good weekend train from Bangalore(KJM) to Tuticorin on Sat and Tuticorin to Bangalore(KJM) on Sunday..But slightly needs to change the timing with speed up the train in between KJM & SA of huge slack timing..



This is not possible!

The huge buffer time b/w KJM and SA is to accomodate the crossing delay on this train on the congested single line Guntakal-KJM..

http://indiarailinfo.com/train/okha-madurai-vivek-express-19568-okha-to-mdu/15584/1757/790

Look at the above link.. on an avg the train arrives KJM late by 1hr 53min!!

IMHO, they can add this buffer in Hindupur-KJM leg, so that passenger boarding this train at KJM towards Madurai and Tuticorin need not wait for long time.

KJM dep 18:20 SA 22:30 MDU 03:30 TN 06:30
TN 23:00 MDU 02:00 SA 07:00 KJM 11:30

will help the weekend crowd from Tuticorin to Salem/Bangalore.

Yes..Buffer time can add between Hindupur - Yelahanka Junction and SR can schedule 18.20 @ KJM 22.50 @ SA then it can be routed via NMKL and reach MDU @ 3.20 and TN @ 6.30..

If SR/SWR changes as above, it will be good weekend services, Will SR/SWR change the buffer timing between Hindupur - Yelahanka Junction - KJM?

Mahendran Sir,

Decorations are done to the Pune engine. Sweets will be distributed to the loco pilots, TTE's and Guard. Children dressed like Vivekanandar will also be there at platform number 1. Not sure who is going to flag away the run.

Our First long Distance train: Tuticorin - Okha - Tuticorin Vivek Express

Now, Vivek Express from Tuticorin

M. Piramanayagam, secretary, Tuticorin District Passengers’ Association thanked the Railway Ministry and S.R.

Mahendran Sir,

On last Thursday morning we were alarmed to see the return journey still not updated. Bala Sir got shivers all over Smile . Finally we were forced to call the Operations and the Commerical Departments at Rajkot. We got a confirmation aroind 10:30 am that they were working on the updation and at around 11:30 am we were able to book tickets on the OKHA - TN return journey.

TN - OKHA Vivek Exp should be diverted via NMKL with same slot from Tuticorin and should speed up from SA to DMM & should reach OKHA @ 22.30 as SF Exp instead of 01.35..

TN - 22.30
MDU - 01.30
SA - 05.30
KJM - 09.30
PUNE - 03.00
KYN - 05.30
ADI - 13.00
OKHA - 22.30

Same return Direction should change the slack time from DMM - YNK and give the timing 18.15 @ KJM and reach 06.45 @ TN as same of current slot..

Mahendran Sir,

Awsome timings. We really want this timings for this train. May be if its not diverted via Namakkal this year atleast they can reduce the slack time for this train when arriving from both Okha and TN in the coming July time table.

TN don't have any other slots free in day time?? Though I agree that MDU people can fill the train anytime be it day or night, With this timings people find it difficult(apart from TN) to board. Or does TN alone will fill entire train? Shocked

Vignesh Sir,

You have asked the same question of Madurai filling the train and whether Tuticorin alone can fill the train for the N th time and yes I am ok to answer it the N th time. Tuticorin cannot fill this train alone as I had already mentioned in the Guruvayur express slip coach extension to TN.

Since the time prespective came mostly in the SA - BWT - KJM section I said its a good time to change and to have the slack time reduced.

There are trains from same Tuticorin, Nellai and Nagercoil towards SBC which comes in the more favourable time to Madurai.

We never asked for this time slot and whatever is given we have commented on the fine tuning of the time

Vignesh Sir, I wish to remind you again that, Tuticorin is not in a position to accept or reject trains based on timings. Whatever that is given rarely to us we accept it on the go.

DR - TEN also have bad timings for MDU, proposed SBC - NCJ slot too have bad timings for MDU in 1 direction. Even these days MAS/MS special trains too have odd arrival dep for MDU. If SR gives 1 special train for MS/MAS - MDU It does not matter for other south bound train slots, but SR is not giving any spl to MDU and people are dependent on south bound trains ,so slot really matters for us. Dont know the reason, whether slot is the reason (that MDU is getting bad timings) or I am suspecting some background work is going on against MDU. Thats why I am asking N number of times thats it.
