with the completion of track electrification between Virudhunagar to Tirunelveli and Viruthunagar to Tuticorin, it is certain that more and more trains will be hauled electrically. Hence it is imperative that the Railway Divisional headquarters being at Madurai , it should also have a complete Electric Loco shed for operation and maintenance of Electric locomotives. Should this region again have to be "kept" relying on Golden Rock, Erode or Tondiarpet Loco sheds for electric haulage. With Madurai Division generating a pheneomenal revenue , to Southern Railway , it is incumbent upon Madurai to have this facility. will the Railway authorities act in earnest and accede to our request?
For the past 2 days,
The madurai to palani passenger train has been extended upto pollachi.
The Tiruchendur-Palani passenger train was also extended upto pollachi.
Similarly chennai-palani train is also extended upto pollachi.
Not sure how many more years it will take to connect to coimbatore...
