After 7 long months, got a Chance to travel in 02624 Trivandrum-Chennai COVID-19 Mail special from Trivandrum Central till Chennai Central on 20.10.2020...
In this video showing the journey compilation from Angamaly to Chennai Central.. Look out for totally empty Chennai Mail like never before despite the regular timings!!
The speed of the train in MAS - CBE Section on the up journey is great, although It drags to cover the distance between ERN - TVC due to speed restriction, something can be made to increase the MPS in this are.
On Down journey the travelling time between CBE - MAS takes longer than the other SF trains, SR can do something to increase the MPS and Average Speed of the train as this train has high patronage.
please watch and enjoy making video of SR KING TAMIL NADU EXPRESS on its first run
No words for appreciation.
Finally Big Boss turns in LHB Avatar,
Its been a memorable moment for me & SSK to arrange all the things in last minute in this bad weather condition. Its for one & only Tamil Nadu Express "The Big Boss" First LHB run.
1. Arranged Loco in last minute, twice loco got shuffled due to various reasons.
Hope for the best. Lets wait till new TT or till TN upgraded to 130 MPS in Bina-NDLS section. NCR has maintained consistency on MPS upgrades in GC section and hope the same happens in GT section.
Today SBC Raj and AP are just a block each behind TN and trailing. This may continue till BPL.
I don't recall other trains overtaking
so i see the overtakes list is empty ?, pretty obvious and ironic isn't it. But i suggest we start overtaken by from here on, that could see a list.
hopefully, until then iam signing off from the TN thread, i don't want this to become a place to vent my frustration, we will meet up if and when the schedule is revised. Good luck folks.
My guess is that lots of trains have undergone TT changes. Once all of them resume operations at least railways will get some idea as to how the schedule/punctuality plays out. And during the next TT change they may hopefully recommend some changes . As of now everything has been put in paper. Few trains have started. The real picture will come out when all trains services start
