SR can take over TEN and PDY Chalukya from CR. They will get priority in SR.
If done, following realignments possible:
1. NCJ CSTM can run 6 days via MDU TPJ VM CGL AJJ RU GTL
2. PDY Chalukya can run via KPD KJM GTL UBL
TEN Chalukya can run via MDU SA KJM GTL GTL UBL.
4. KIK LTT and MDU LTT (CR Trains) can run via MV VM MS RU route.

Advantages include: Increased connectivity to Trichy, better route for south TN travellers, delta connectivity to Mumbai.

Great:good point Useful:Nice idea
Extension is NOT needed. Let it remain undisturbed, being one of the prime train to pune and mumbai from chennai.
Plus this MAS CSMT deserves a premium train like humsafar/duranto, hope this comes up as well.
IMO, the issue is for achieving a daily train to mumbai, which can be done by merging the Balaji and NCJ CSMT into a single train via TPJ ALU VM TNM, duly making the frequency six times a week or daily, and making TVC CSMT (a slot sharer of the same to get a different slot), hence providing a daily connection from south of tamilnadu, Trichy, Ariyalur, Villupuram, thiruvannamalai and vellore to mumbai via Madanapalle, in its present slot with slight modification and speed up - /train/210731/801/12282
And return - /train/210729/12282/801

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
