Train 06334/33 Trivandrum-Veravel-Trivandrum will start from 07 December.

Hopefully, more and more trains will start running soon.
However, the announcement of this train from December reduces the possibility of the new TT coming into effect from 1st December

Venad dep ERS 17.15
Kerala dep ERN 17.00 (arr 16.55)

Kerala comes from Tamil Nadu side and will provide PGT, TCR, AWY also an additional service.
It will overtake Venad by not going to ERS.

Let us wait and see if this is a smooth overtaking. Venad gets late at TCR itself. Venad has to vacate PF at ERN by 16.45.

With this new timing, early morning departure from Kovai/Palakkad to central and south cities in Kerala is lost. SR should introduce a new Intercity from CBE-Kanyakumari route.

From kanniyakumari district end, we require only Coimbatore trains in Nagercoil, Valliyur ,TEN , Madurai, DG, Palani ,Pollachi, Pothanoor ,Coimbatore which is the shortest route to be connected by a Janasathapthi express.Kanniyakumari dt ,TEN , Virudhunagar people in Tamilnadu do not have any connectivity to Palani ,Pollachi.Pothanoor route (shortest)

Delta region has not yet connected with Central Kerala. A new daily exp from MS to ERS via CDM,PKT,MNM,SCT,KTTM will make wonders. Or extend GUV-PUU exp to MS via the above route.

After revising the timing of Mangala, Kerala, and Island exp, Many office goers, Business people from North Kerala have lost daily connectivity with Ernakulam. New express service from the Kozhikode side and Coimbatore side are inevitable.
