Seems good booking in the initial days . As usual some demands to change the time to ensure it reaches Bangalore earlier.
Let it start first then hopefully later on they can explore options of time change etc.

The body of Mar Athanasius was found at around 4.45 am-5 am lying in between intersection point in between second and first track near Pullepady Railway Overbridge.
KOCHI: The police suspect that Metropolitan of the Orthodox Church, Chengannur Diocese, Thomas Mar Athanasios fell from his train following a heavy jerk at a track intersection point routing trains to Ernakulam Junction Station and Kottayam after passing Ernakulam Town Station near Pullepady in Kochi. The police are also checking whether another train ran over the deceased as his left leg was found on another track separated from the body.

per information provided by railway authorities and police, Thomas Mar Athanasios was travelling in Rajdhani Express and he had made a call to his secretary informing the arrival of the train when it crossed Aluva Railway station between 3.45 am and 4 am.
The train passed Ernakulam Town station (non-stoppage) at 4.12 am through the second track, which is used by trains operating from the north side. The train arrived at Ernakulam Junction Station first platform at 4.20 am.
The body of Mar Athanasios was found at around 4.45 am-5 am lying in between intersection point in between second and first track near Pullepady Railway Overbridge (ROB).
"Thomas Mar Athanasios was standing at the right-side door of the AC three tier compartment. The possibility is, there was a heavy jerk when the train crossed the track intersection point. Since Rajadhani Express did not stop at Ernakulam Town station, the speed of the train is supposed to be fast. At the time, Mar Athanasios was standing near the door, lost his balance and fell off from the train. For an 80-year-old person, it would be difficult to withstand the heavy jerk," a police officer at accident spot told 
His body was lying in between the tracks in South-North position and his left leg, separated from the body, was at another track. "Only after the postmortem, we can confirm about how the death has taken place. Whether there was any train coming from the opposite which ran over him cannot be confirmed now. Usually, the first track is also used by the goods trains," K Lalji, Assistant Commissioner of Police said.
No other passenger in the compartment in which Mar Athanasius was travelling reported about the accident when the train reached Ernakulam Junction station.
When the Rajdhani Express reached Ernakulam Junction first platform, Mar Athanasios' secretary was waiting to receive him. However, when Mar Athanasius was not found, they informed the authorities. In the search that followed, his body was spotted. It was later shifted to Ernakulam General Hospital where a post-mortem was held.

CHENGANNUR/ALUVA: Rows of submerged houses, paddy fields under sheets of water and Pamba river in spate bear testimony to the devastating floods in Kerala.
A train journey from Ernakulam to Thiruvananthapuram, which usually presents a picture of greenery all along, gave a peep into the tragedy that befell the residents, especially in worst hit Chengannur in Alapuzha district, and other areas.
Train services to the state capital which remained suspended in the section as also in several others from August 15 in the wake of the unprecedented floods that ravaged the state, claiming

216 lives in the last 11 days, resumed on .
A PTI correspondent who travelled by the first train saw the destruction caused by the floods, the worst in a century, through the journey as houses and fields were under water on both sides of the track.
The train was empty as it chugged out of the Ernakulam station, but became crowded when it reached Chengannur, about 70 km away, with displaced people boarding it to move to the homes of their friends and relatives.
In nearby Pandanad and Cheriyanad, where lush green paddy fields and swaying coconut palms normally soothe the eye, the whole area was a sea of water.
Officials said nearly 90 per cent of the people stranded in the Pandanad area have been shifted to shelters.
Around 30,000 people were rescued from the area with the help of 400 Army personnel and NDRF and local volunteers, using around 80 boats, including 65 of fishermen.
As the train crossed a bridge across the Pamba river, the roar of the gushing waters gave an indication of the intensity of the floods.
The river has been flooded since the shutters of two major dams - Pamba and Kakki- in Pathanamthitta district were opened days ago after water level reached the maximum due to heavy rains.
Scenes were similar during a ride in the Kochi Metro to the worst affected Aluva in Ernakulam district on Saturday.
Multi-storey buildings, including the office of Kochi Metro yard,in the busy town upto a radius of five to six KM of the Periyar River were fully under water then.
The Metro services, which were suspended for a day last week, have helped people of Aluva to move to safer places and offered free travel.
There has been a let up in the rains in the last two days and the flood waters have started receding in some parts.

Kottayam railway station, the most important transit point for tourists and pilgrims to Central Travancore, is all set for a makeover.

shift of the good shed to another spot, he added.
In addition, the entrance on the southern end, with its escalator, rest rooms, toilets, kitchens, all would come under the makeover plan, he said.
Consultancy agency
Mr. Alphons said a consultancy agency would be appointed for the proposed development project. The Railway Board would implement the project on the basis of the detailed project report. He said the project would be implemented during 2018-19 fiscal.
He said the Chengannur railway station would get the highest outlay for infrastructure development in the country during 2019-20 at Rs. 100 crore.
This year works worth Rs. 15 crore to Rs. 20 crore would be taken at Chengannur, he added.
The Ernakulam, Kozhikode, and Palakkad stations would also be in the development mode this year.
Projects worth Rs. 15 crore to Rs. 20 crore would be taken up at these stations, he said.
The minister, who arrived at the station by 1.20 p.m., was accompanied by Divisional Railway Manager Prakash Bhutani, chief commercial manager Priyamvada Viswanathan, executive director Vivek Saxena, chief engineer A.K. Sinha, divisional commercial manager Ajay Kushik, Kottayam station manager Rajan Ninan and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders.
