Wow, really these many trains at a single station? Rare sight. Looks awesome though.

It is the station yard that is the reason for so many trains.

This Much Train in one station is because Thiruvananthapuram [ Trivandrum] Is the Last Biggest Station in South India. So Many Trains Start From Here. Its a Sight to see them Real. They have To Pack them so Close to each other Due to the Limited Space Available in TVM Central. But as in Previous Pictures Posted by Sudeesh you can see New Sat Stations Like Kochuveli Which is to the Northwest of TVM. Now the SR is Considering TO Develop Nagerkoil Stations to Make space for Long Trains Which is to the South of TVM.

Some load of Trivandrum Central(TVC) is taken by its Satellite Terminal, Kochuveli, 6 kms north. Most of the new trains started during recent years are from Kochuveli only.

Now SR plans another satellite for TVC at Nemom, which is 8 kms south.

I don't understand as to why IR never seems to provide automatic doors for the train carriages...

Nice pics, the interior looks cool but the finishing of the exterior is bad
