This is might be the only SBC bound train which has availability . Remaining days , even general quota has WL of 15 or 16 in sleeper and plenty available in AC Classes. Even MV MYS has general quota end to end but it sports a humongous waiting list of around 250+ minimum and reaches 400+ very easily

All trains cannot have comfortable timings. Even Yesvantpur Kannur and Kochuveli Bangalore are having too much slack yet it boasts a great Patronage. One advantage is that both of them have a halt inside the city limits of Bangalore at convenient time. If karmelaram halt is sanctioned then Nagercoil express won't have any excuses

Bus Vs Train conflicts are everywhere, Coimbatore has around 80+ buses to Bangalore , Ernakulam and Kannur has a sizable population working in Bangalore but I have neither seen Kochuveli express being empty nor Kannur exp . Kochuveli exp atleast has big names like Thrissur, Ernakulam , Alappuzha , Kollam apart from Coimbatore. For Kannur , it has only Calicut and Palakkad.

A Full Journey Vlog of a #train #Journey - #Bengaluru to #Madurai via #Palakkad
This Journey Happened in March 2018. During the onset of Summer, I embarked on a rather long journey from #Bengaluru to #Chennai, via #Palakkad & #Madurai. On a Saturday evening, I left for Carmelram Railway station, to board the 16527 #Yeshvantpur #Kannur Express, which was hauled by an #Erode WDM-3D that day. The rains were consistently pouring down that evening, and there was respite only for a brief period when my train arrived and we departed. By the time we crossed over the state border and reached Hosur, we were already delayed by more than 30 mins. And it didn't end there. With the rains pouring down consistently, I didn't stay up late. With some hope that we will cover up the delay, I called it a day and slept, for I had to wake up the following morning for a 04:40 hrs arrival at #Palakkad.
But when I did wake up to my alarm, I realized that we were nowhere close to gaining up on the previous night's delay, but were in fact delayed further. We pulled into #Coimbatore at 04:50hrs, delayed by 1.5 hrs. And with the little bit of slack in the schedule, we managed to reach Palakkad just at the crack of dawn, at 06:00 am. A Friend and local resident, Avinash Venkitachalam had come down to meet me at those early hours, and we had breakfast a local eatery. My connecting train was the newly extended #Amrita Express to #Madurai via #Pollachi, #Palani & #Dindigul. The train which used to terminate at Palakkad Town earlier was extended to Madurai after the gauge conversion of the Palakkad Town - Dindigul line.
The train had a history of running late and that day was no different. Coming from #Thiruvananthapuam, the train reverses twice in its run, once at #Shoranur, where the slip coaches to #Nilambur (#Rajyarani Express) get dropped off, and the second time at Palakkad Jn., the train pulled in slowly at 08:15, and after a loco reversal, the rebuilt WDM-3A from #Ernakulam shed, pulled us out at 08:48 hrs, nearly 80 mins behind schedule. But with the enormous slack thrust into the schedule, I was hopeful that we will make up for it.
And sure enough, the delay went down slowly. At Minatchipuram, we crossed the Chennai Palakkad Express via Palani. The train was originally running up to Palani, but with gauge conversion was extended to Palakkad. After Minatchipuram, we crossed over the border and entered Tamilnadu. Our first commercial halt was at Pollachi. Post Pollachi Jn., we crossed a beautiful stretch, where in both sides of the track was laced with an array of wind turbines, which was probably handled by a firm in Pollachi.
We then set onwards to our next halt, #Palani, which is one of the 6 heavenly abodes in #Tamilnadu dedicated to Lord Murugan. The station has a really good view of the temple on top of the hill. The Palani hills gave us company for the next few kms. Though it was early Summer, the heat was beating down upon us relentlessly. Dindigul Jn. the convergence of 4 lines, one each from #Trichy, #Karur, Pakkad & Madurai.
The alignment of tracks from Dindigul till #Kodaikkanal road was normal, from where the up line crossed over on top and went to the left, thus making it look like the trains are moving tracks opposite to the usual convention of keeping left. This is the reason of the two crossings of #17616 Madurai #Kacheguda Express & #Guruvayur #Chennai Egmore Express appearing on the left. We moved along briskly and reached Madurai at 13:40 hrs, delayed by 30 mins, thus gaining about 50 mins from the delay with which departed from Palakkad. It was curtains down on the first part of an exciting journey which I undertook.
Also, this was the first time I attempted to do a #Train #Journey #Vlog in #Tamil. So, with the hope that you all enjoyed it, I leave you to watch the video. For people who don't understand Tamil, I have added Subtitles in English. Do let me know your opinion and if you have any questions, put it down in the comments section. Thanks for Watching

I am a frequent traveller of train no. 17235/17236 and I stay near Sarjapur. I would like to request official stop at Carmelaram station as amny will be benefited. Cnsidering the time that the train reaches Carmelaram station at 8AM in the morning, It is more ideal for people who stay near sarjapur, marathahalli. Secondly, even while leaving from Bangalore, it reaches Carmelaram at 7PM. It will be more convenient for majority of IT working people. Thanks in advance for the needful

Re# 2022301-1            Tags   Past Edits
Well I have two possible remedies for this.
17235 is a heavily delayed train in the Cantonment-Hosur-Cantonment section given the huge no of traffic it has to encounter on this single during those hours. 17235 invariably makes atleast 2 stops before Hosur to let the Karaikal Bangalore passenger and the Ernakulam Bangalore intercity pass by. And its usually stations other than Karmelaram where the crossings happen. Hence a stop at Karmelaram will only add to this train. What you can do is to take Yeshvantpur Salem passenger to Hosur and catch this train there. I know many people who use this arrangement and it works quite well.
17236, this train may very well stop at Karmelaram or the next stop which is Bellandur road for a crossing with the Passenger. You may use the passenger to reach your destination incase the crossing is at Bellandur Road.
