I travelled in IC from tpj to DG last week. The coach boards are new and red in color. It shows both TPJ – TVC and TVC – Guruvayur expresses. The SSE / C&W works are indicated in boards show the TPJ. It is an 18 coacher. I saw that two times. It is hauled by GOC WDP 3A loco. When I travelled it hauled 6 additional slip coaches at the front. So it was 24 coacher on that day. Very poor performance in speed. It took nearly 1 hour 40 minutes to cover the TPJ – DG distance where MV TEN FP takes only 1 hour 20 minutes to 1 hour 30 minutes covering more stoppages. Occupancy in ur coaches are not satisfying.

There is no proper connection from Main line. I took a superfast ticket to DG at MV. Then I caught (down) mannai exp (3 AM). I reached TJ at 4.25 AM. I waited for more than one hour 15 minutes for the 5.40 TJ – TPJ pass. It reaches TPJ at 7.05 hours. Because it has one more additional stoppage ( GOC work shop North Gate) in addition with current all stoppages between TJ and TPJ. It has two crossings ( chemmozhi & TPJ – KIK pass). So TJ – TPJ pass loses its trust level. IC dep time is also changed from 7.15 to 7.05. then how do people trust the connection and take direct ticket. I saw few workers from CUPJ going for TEN. They took ticket upto TPJ. They really missed the IC because they could not take ticket. My request is they should give proper connectivity for ML people for this IC. One they should extend one portion of MAnnai to TPJ or the dep time of TJ – TPJ pass should be revised from 5.40 to 5.25 AM.

Today (01/08/2017), 22628 TVC-TPJ SF Express train is currently running late by more than 1hr and 30 mins. It is not clear why this train was made to depart late today by 35mins at Trivandrum and enroute this train got further more delayed. Anyone having any idea about the late departure at Trivandrum?

Could be because of the track works in progress around TEN, not sure, if the date is same.

Yesterday used this train from Palani to TPJ
56709 Palani-MDU pass (Number of people use this train to DG, MDU, TPJ)
22628 DG-TPJ ( All UR coaches were full, AC chair car - 60% occupancy, 2S seats were available).
Number of people use this train for journey from DG to TPJ, more UR coaches needed.
DG: 18.50/18.55
TPJ: 20.10 (Touching 100 kmph despite heavy rain)
Since PM done @ TPJ: coaches were neat and clean.

56770 TCN-PGT pass reached DG @ 18.30 just before 22627. All the 13 coaches full occupied.

Today one of my friend is travelling in TEN-TPJ IC and he says all the coaches are full even at Valliyur. The extension to TVC seems to be more fruitful, as the train has increase in number of coaches too. They have increased the number of reserved coaches, they can dereserve some of the coaches as done earlier. Many UR people dont know that they can get a reserved seat with additional 15 Rs. and they end up travelling in UR in congestion.

TVC-TPJ is hauled by WDP4D
TPJ-TVC is being hauled by a WAP1

So the link seems to be not fixed, but this train is being used to shuttle locos between GOC and TVC and also weekly links from TN and KL stations.
