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.

Hundreds of villagers thronged a railway gate near Ambathurai on Tuesday and resorted to a sit-in protest on the railway track for more than three hours causing detention of many trains plying between Madurai and Dindigul.
They demanded a permanent gate keeper at the railway gate in Ambatturai. Ambatturai railway station is located at 11 km from Dindigul on the way to Madurai. To the east of the station, lies a number of villages including Samiyarpatti, Thoppampatti, Annanagar, Indira Nagar and Ernagampatti and there are many farmlands at the foothills of Sirumalai.

railway gate was opened near the station for the villagers to commute from one side of the track to the other. But there was no gate keeper and the gate lies locked for most part of the day making it difficult for the people to cross the line. Subsequently, the people made a small way adjacent to the gate, just enough for two-wheelers to cross but the railway officials closed the path as it was dangerous.
Irked by this, a number of villagers staged a protest blocking the track for nearly three hours. They attempted to block the Tejas Express that was running from Madurai to Chennai but the railway police intervened and held talks with the villagers.
Amrita Express was stopped midway near Ambathurai, a passenger train between Erode and Tirunelveli was stopped near Vellode and a passenger train from Nagercoil to Coimbatore was stopped near Kodai Road.
The protesters relented around 5 p.m. after which the trains crossed Ambathurai station.
