Time to withdraw some stations [MLMR,TMV,ALU,SRGM,DKO] since it is super fast express crossing 600KMS with 10.45 HRS with 19 stations. Can do very well now when silambu converting to daily express.TT will get reduced to 10 HRS.

None of the stops mentioned above will be withdrawn. (Might be TMV.. Remote chance though). If you ever see patronage from SRGM, you will not advocate removing this

Agree with ur point..Actually SRGM has good patronage from MS to SRGM n SRGM to RMM..
Compared to MS-KKDI/PDKT bookings in Sethu, SRGM n TPJ has good num of bookings to RMM..So in that case KKDI PDKT stops should be withdrawn Laughing Laughing

Mahe, you got to be kidding about KKDI/PDKT removal etc. There is no chance to remove any stoppages - even TMV that have been long served by Sethu.

16101/16102 is not stopping @ TMV further takes extra 64 km so stop for Sethu Express @ TMV is acceptable.

Broadly speaking, MS-RMM even on date does not have too many train services. 6101 is via ML and 22661 is via CL, and another via ML is the TPTY-RMM again via ML and MDU. So, wherever they halt invariably all stations whether major or minor are generating very good patronage for both 6101 and 22661.

Tindivanam is not debatable at all, possibly 22661 is the only train linking TMV with RMM. I am not sure 8495 also stops here.

Separately RMM, while having connectivity up to BBS, also deserves to be connected with holy places like Gaya and Howrah/Patna. In this budget, there should have been provision for a train between RMM-Patna via HWH. If 5929/30 was not such a slow train, taking 69-odd hrs. between DBRG-TBM, I would have supported its extension to RMM via CL. But that move would extend its running time to nearly 83-84 hrs.!!

In fact, back when Silambu was introduced, I for one thought it was quite innovative of IR/SR to have conceived a service between MS-MNM. Now that Silambu runs up to SGT, I think even now time is not lost for the SR to run at least 6 slip coaches by it for RMM, if feasible.

Chennai Egmore - Rameswaram day/night pass was the third option available in MG but SR didnot introduced in BG. 56705/57606 MDU-VM pass using the slot in TPJ-VM section. SR can very well extend this train to RMM and convert into TBM-RMM Fast pass Via VRI. MDU and speed up bit.

RMM: 23.45 > MDU: 3.15/3.30 > TPJ: 6.45/6.55 > VM: 10.55/11.05=>TBM: 13.45

TBM: 13.45> VM: 16.20/16.35 > TPJ: 20.35/20.45 > MDU: 0.00/0.15 > RMM: 3.45

This will give connection to many CL town with Chennai - Ulundurpet, Pennadam, Mathur, Sendurai, Pullambadi

Suganthan, that is an interesting suggestion. But please remember, even while VM-MV-KMU-TJ-TPJ-RMM either via KKDI-PDKT-MNM-RMD is unelectrified as yet, SR is about to become a nearly 90-95% electrified zone and this means the era of operating shuttles or passengers will rapidly become passe.

I honestly believe that if at all AC passengers on SR will most probably be operated only for distances not exceeding 250-300 kms., and hence a passenger between MS-RMM that too one running for close to 14 would be improbable. Best would be initially have 6-7 slip coaches between MS-RMM by Silambu express, with amalgamation at Manamadurai.

Hi Rajadurai, your slightly wrong. 5.50 pm to 4.20 am is not 11.30 hrs. but 10.30 hrs. at approx. 57 kmph overall.

When you wrote 11.30 hrs. I was confused as for a distance of around 595/600 kms. 11 hrs. run will yield an average speed of 55 kmph. 11.30 hrs. will render the service unfit to be categorized as an SFE.

It is a very long period of more than 2 months since a train (with passengers) is operated on Pamban Bridge. Is there any timeframe set by SR regarding how long the trains won't be operated upto Rameshwaram and get short terminated at Mandapam?.
When will SR complete the maintenance works on Pamban Bridge and start operating trains on this Pamban bridge?.

A formal official announcement is actually required from SR in this regard evenif they had planned not to use the existing Pamban bridge at all in future for passenger traffic until a new one is built.

There was a report that works have been completed in the bridge, and that services will start very soon. I saw this two days back.Now I am looking for news about the resumption of services It is rther strange that S.Rly has not been giving proper information regarding the time frame, nor the extent of repairs , even though two full months have elapsed since the stoppage of services to RMM.

Highly disappointed the way in which SR is dealing the issue of not operating the trains till Rameshwaram. They are not even interested in making a formal announcement on when the trains shall be operated upto Rameshwaram and also on whether trains will be operated to Rameshwaram or not.
But still passengers are allowed to be book train tickets till Rameshwaram without intimating the passengers whether the trains will be operated upto Rameshwaram or else short terminated at Mandapam.

Some one should get a RTI report on this, from the officers concerned.

S.Rly seems to deal with callous indifference in this matter, without informing public anything. Disgusting.
