Chennai: Southern Railway may have completed gauge conversion and electrification of some stretches of lines in the state, but few attempts have been made to make the most of these to improve train connectivity. With no trains on at least three lines which are ready and not enough trains on two other lines, passengers want reintroduction of the trains that were running when the lines were metre gauge.
There are no trains on the Chennai-Ranipet stretch, now opened primarily for freight, the Dindigul-Pollachi, Madurai-Bodi and the Thiruvarur-Karaikal lines, while there are only two services along the Sengottai-Kollam stretch.

the coming months more lines are set to be ready after gauge conversion of Usilampatti-Andipatti, Andipatti-Theni and Theni-Bodinayakanur lines and doubling of Macheri Road-Mettur dam and Omalur-Mecheri Road lines are over.
Investments have been made to ready the infrastructure, but railways, fearinbg low patronage, is waiting for all the lines or the full stretch of a line to be completed before running trains.
Most of the scheduled express trains have resumed, connecting towns where there is demand for travel.
Edward Jeni, secretary of Kanyakumari District Railway Users' Association (KDRUA), said railways should run most trains on the lines that are ready after gauge conversion and electrification. “There is scope to run more trains on Sengottai-Kollam stretch and on Thiruvarur-Karaikal and Madurai-Theni stretch which will be ready soon. Railways can push for resuming trains that were running when lines were metre gauge.”
Since the Arakkonam-Salem MEMU was launched, people have been suggesting such services on short routes connecting small towns so that people can be encouraged to switch to trains from expensive buses.
An official said passenger services could not be introduced because of the Covid restrictions.
“There is scope for passenger services on the Chennai-Ranipet and the Tindivanam-Nagari stretch and also on other lines in future.” The idea is to complete ongoing infrastructure upgrade and bring more towns into the rail network so that trains can be introduced when there is a need, he added.
Sources said if private trains connecting traffic-intense towns become a success, railways may improve connections between small towns using train sets that do not need locomotives.

CHENNAI: The Cardamom Express between Madurai and Bodinayakkanur is set to resume services by April next year.Gauge conversion along a 37km stretch from Madurai to Usilampatti has been completed and the remaining 53km stretch is expected to be ready before March 2020, said a senior railway official.The last service on the route was stopped in December 2011 but, sanction for gauge conversion was approved only in the 2016-17 financial year, said the official.Officials plan to call the Commissioner of Railway Safety (CRS) for an inspection of the newly-laid broad-gauge tracks on the 37km stretch. “That is expected to be done by next month end. This is mainly due to rebuilding of railway stations along the stretch,” the official said.Civil work at Vadapazanchi railway station, the first station on the Madurai-Bodinayakkanur route, is on in full swing and is likely to be completed soon, said another official.Asked about the gauge conversion work...

from Usilampatti to Bodinayakkanur, the official said the work was in progress. A total of Rs 450crore has been earmarked for the 90km stretch. “Operation of trains on the stretch is expected to be resumed by March as a Tamil New Year bonus for the people of Bodinayakkanur,” he said.Already, a section of people in the Nagamalai Pudukottai area has begun demanding the setting up of a railway station in Palkalai Nagar to facilitate free movement of people residing in the surrounding areas, said a railway source. “If this issue is raised, the operation of the train services may get further delayed,” he said.However, things may not be as smooth as they appear, officials fear. People from areas along the route have also begun demanding the setting up of manned level crossing gates in certain places and construction of rail under-bridges in other areas. All these tricky issues have to be addressed before the train service along the route can be resumed, the official said.This is the longest stretch in the state that is being converted from metre gauge to broad gauge. There are a few smaller stretches in the Cauvery delta region, which are yet to be converted into broad gauge, he added.
