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.

भारतीय रेल (Indian Railways) ने छोटे कसबों को बड़े शहरों से जोड़ने वाली ‘सेवा सर्विस ट्रेन’ की शुरुआत की है. रेलवे ने अलग - अगल राज्यों में कुल 10 ‘सेवा सर्विस ट्रेन’ शुरू की गई हैं. इन ट्रेनों के शुरू किए जाने से छोटे शहरों से महानगरों में नौकरी या रोजगार के सिलसिले में आने वाले लोगों को काफी सहूलियत हो रही है.
रेलवे ने इन शहरों के बीच शुरू की सेवा सर्विस ट्रेन :
खास बात
...
more...
ये है कि ‘सेवा सर्विस ट्रेन’ शुरू करने के लिए नए रेक नहीं बनवाए गए. इसके चलते इन ट्रेनों को चलाने में रेलवे को किसी तरह का अतिरिक्त खर्च नहीं करना पड़ा है. इस सेवा को छोटे शहर के लोग काफी पसंद भी कर रहे हैं. मौजूदा रेकों के जरिए ही ये सेवा शुरू की गई है. रेलवे ने दिल्ली से शामली, भुवनेश्वर से नारायणगढ़ शहर, मुरकंगसेलेक से डिब्रुगढ़, कोटा से झालावाड, कोयंबटूर से पलानी, करूर से सेलम, असरवा से हिम्मतनगर, यशवंतपुर से तुमकुर, कोयंबटूर से पोल्लाची के बीच चलाई जा रही हैं.

PM मोदी के गृहनगर को जोड़ती है ये ट्रेन
इन ट्रेनो में गुजरात के वणनगर से महेशाणा के चल रही ‘सेवा सर्विस ट्रेन’ बेहद खास है. ये ट्रेन सप्ताह में छह दिन चलाई जा रही है. ये ट्रेन यात्रियों को जहां सड़क से यात्रा की तुलना में जल्दी पहुंचाती है वहीं किराया भी कम लगता है. वणनगर प्रधानमंत्री नरेंद्र मोदी का गृहनगर भी है.



इस ट्रेन की सेवाओं को बढ़ाया जाएगा
सांवरकांठा में काफी समय के बाद ब्राडगेज ट्रेन शुरू की गई है. इससे स्थानीय लोगों में काफी उत्साह है. असरवा से हिम्मतनगर के बीच चलाई जा रही सेवा सर्विस ट्रेन को आने वाले दिनों में अहमदाबाद से उदयपुर के बीच चलाने की योजना पर काम किया जा रहा है. इस सेवा के शुरू होने से गुजरात और राजस्थान दोनों राज्यों के लोगों को फायदा मिलेगा.



बढ़ाई जा सकती हैं भारतीय सेवा सर्विस ट्रेनें
रेलवे के एक वरिष्ठ अधिकारी के मुताबिक अगर इन सेवा सर्विस ट्रेनों के परिणाम काफी अच्छे रहते हैं और लोग इन्हें पसंद करते हैं तो रेलवे आने वाले समय में इन ट्रेनों की संख्या को बढ़ा भी सकता है. फिलहाल शुरू की गई इस सेवा के परिणामों पर नजर रखी जा रही है.

After knocking on the doors of local politicians, government officials and senior railway authorities in vain to
introduce trains from the city to Rameshwaram and Madurai via Pollachi, the Pollachi Train Passengers Welfare Association has
approached Chalakudy MP Benny Behanan.
The association requested the Lok Sabha member to push for trains from Ernakulam to Mangaluru and Rameshwaram, via
Pollachi.

“These trains were operational before the gauge conversion work. We need more passenger trains on this route
because many people from Kerala travel to Tamil Nadu, especially the south, for work and business regularly,” said its secretary
B Mohanraj. “Currently, we have a Palakkad to Tiruchendur train that leaves at 4.30am, stops at Pollachi at 6am before going to
Tiruchendur. There is a return train to Kerala that stops in Pollachi at 8.45pm. We need more options for regular travellers
between both the states via this route,” he said.
The association also called for strengthening freight traffic opportunities on passenger trains as vegetables from the
Coimbatore-Pollachi belt are sent to Kerala daily.
The Coimbatore-Palakkad stretch and the Podanur-Pollachi stretch should be electrified, the association said. “Electrification
will allow trains to travel faster, thus making travel time lesser. Coimbatore to Pollachi journey can be brought to less than one
hour compared to the 1.25hour,” Mohanraj added.
