Seems the idea is to spoil CBE SBC Connectivity.
Let me propose a solution.
16301/16302 TVC SRR Venad Express to be extended to Bangalore SMVB. Can retain TT upto Shoranur as it is. From there, SRR 1300 CBE 1515 SA 1740 SMVB 2200. Next day morning, start from SMVB at 0545 SA 1000 CBE 1220 SRR 1430 and continue as it is to TVC. Win win for TVC and PGT division as day time train running to Bangalore.
...
more...

Along with this, curtail current 12677/12678 SBC ERS SF as SBC CBE SF, as originally planned. Can come from Bangalore to Coimbatore and go back in the afternoon. Can start from SBC at 0630 to reach CBE by 1330 and start back at 1430 to reach SBC by 2130.

CBE gets a dedicated ICE to Bangalore.
No loss to PGT TCR ERS as they will get Venad.
Gain to KTYM QLN TVC as they get a daily day time train to Bangalore.

If above suggestion is accepted, no additional rake is required. Now, 2 rakes are used for ERS SBC SF and one rake for Venad. In the revised scenario, it will be 2 rakes for Venad and one rake for ERS SBC SF.

Till now, Uday rake was maintained at CBE. Now with RSA, suddenly Salem division discovered that there is space constraint which was not there till a month back. 😳
Now they want to disown the Chennai division rake to somewhere preferably to some other division. What is happening?😳
Why Coimbatore should lose all dedicated trains? Initially SBC SF. Now this Uday. Neither they are running proper night train to Bangalore nor allowing any day time trains?

If Podanur Pollachi is transferred to Salem division, they can extend many trains to POY. PGT division can be out of CBE MDU line, what it gains by keeping 20 kms of this line nobody knows.

Be polite in your words.
If this idea of TVC SBC of Venad is stupid, what about those travelling in MS GUV via MDU TVC and MS MAQ via TPJ CBE SRR? These are trains running daily inside Kerala.
Be clear what is stupid: Me asking extension of a kerala train to outside Kerala? Or my idea of daytime travel between TVC and SBC? Or midnight arrival of a prestigious train of a neighbouring state inside Kerala?

TVC SBC Venad will act as 3 ICE trains. TVC ERN, ERN CBE and CBE SBC.
Already, people are used to sit for 11 hours in SBC ERS ICE. Similar daytime trains run inside Kerala like Parashuram and Ernad. How people sit in those trains?
If needed, let the composition be changed.

Thanks for your understanding. My logic is simple.
If a train terminating at MAQ is getting extended to Kerala, I will ask for extension of Maveli/ Malabar/ Parashuram/ Ernakulam to Bangalore/ Mysore. I will ask for extension of west coast to Murudeshwar.
If a train terminating at CBE is getting extended to Kerala, I will ask for extending Venad to Bangalore. I will ask for extension of Netravathi to Tirunelveli.

Re# 6033374-41               Past Edits
Agreed. But the bias towards neighbouring states' towns by both TVC and PGT is not correct. The way NCJ CAPE MAQ POY are treated by these divisions is not acceptable. Because of those towns, both divisions are existing (600 km criteria). Else, it would have ended up with a single integrated division.
With current scenario, even divisions can be dismantled, realigned and merged with others (Waltair division being bifurcated between ECOR and SCR). Pune division got Daund Manmad line from SUR recently.
So nothing wrong in these neglected areas making

One thing we should understand. These interstate VBs are coming to Bangalore in the afternoon and going back to their bases after 1 or 2 hours. But SWR has not developed any facility at Belagavi. So it should start from Bangalore only and come back.

For effective utilisation rake and also considering suitability of timings, ERS BNC VB should have RSA with a MDU VB.
Something like this: ERS 0615 BNC 1430. BNC 1500 MDU 2230. MDU DEP 0600 BNC 1330 and BNC 1400 ERS 2230.
