Re# 5869205-1              
In times of accident or disruption sometimes it is best advised to short terminate train services. Train came up till Narsipatnam and then went back all the way to Vijaywada and then diverted via Nagpur.....

Is there any specific protocol or rules that is followed in such cases?

zones keeps handing over to another zone and net result is trains never get back to their original schedule

It will really help if they can construct pit lines and start trains from here as well. Will be a great help in de-congesting CBE railway station

Re# 5860044-7              
The issue is basically happening more in the ERS-TVC (section via Allp) where there is single line stretch. What has compounded the matter is couple of trains running in monsoon TT including TVC-Rajdhani and one more TVC-NZM SF. So 3 trains VB, Rajdhani and the NZM train are allowed to cross at the expense of the daily passenger train which leaves on time from ERS and then is detained at the next station (Kumbalam) for more than 45 min. The monsoon TT ends on 31-Oct so there might be some respite. On the other hand railways can try and improve their controlling slightly better. Passengers are saying that instead of detaining for so long at one station, the train has sufficient time to move to couple of stations ahead and this can reduce the delay and crossing can easily happen there.

Nothing much will happen. They cannot influence the outcome. SR (PGT div) will come with a standard response on measures being taken,The detentions of other trains has already come to notice of SR (TVC and PGT div) and some work is happening to resolve this.

Re# 5849805-7              
Proposal is good. But very difficult for SR to approve this.......path and PF availability was an issue hence SR (TVC division) accepted it for one trip earlier when it was run as DHN-ERS spl and then later on was short terminated at CBE

Those proposals submitted by SR were rejected. We don't know what time was proposed by SR for those trains. Here ECR is talking about clone trains with almost similar timing. Allp has just 3pf. ERS also have pf constraints in accommodating 22coach train. There are 6pf in ERS but only 3platforms can hold 22coacher.

Re# 5849928-5              
Earlier when train used to run combined with Tata-Allp, total SL coaches from Rou till Allp was 13 (5 from Tata and 8 from DHN). Similarly 4 gen coaches. Now only 5 Sleeper and 2 gen coaches for 13351 and only daily train so it will obviously have more crowd. If Tata-ERS runs daily at least the crowd from Odisha onwards till Kerala will be split between trains. 13351/13352 needs to reduce few AC coaches and add more sleeper. Getting a clone train will be almost impossible as SR might not have more path space at ERS or Allp

Yes correct. This train has Four 2AC coaches, Six 3AC coaches. I think 2AC can easily be reduced and maybe one 3AC as well.
