There are some misconceptions or unknown facts.

Rockfort has 24 coaches, out of which 13 go to kumbakonam and 11 remain at Trichy. If we take Sleeper coaches 6 go to kumbakonam (including ES1) and six for Trichy.

Berths available for trichy exclusively - 6 x 72 = 432 (leave Tatkal and other quotas)

In Kumbakonam direction
------------------------

The remaining 432 berths, from the six sleeper coaches going to Kumbakonam, are not exclusive for Kumbakonam.

This is common both for Trichy and Kumbakonam, officially. This is direct.

This Kumbakonam portion will be filled by both Trichy and Kumbakonam/Thanjavur passengers on first-cum-first basis.

In Chennai direction
-------------------

Here, the berths of Kumbakonam portion are not common. But, Trichy passengers can take that accommodation also by making the booking from Tiruverumbur by paying Rs.3 extra. This is indirect.

Hence, on a particular day, technically, there is a possibility that all the berths of Kumbakonam portion can be taken by Trichy passengers, leaving nothing for Kumbakonam passengers.

This is for both directions.

Hence, berths of 6 coaches are not taken away by Kumbakonam/Thanjavur passengers exclusively, but shared with Trichy passengers on first-cum-first basis, either directly or indirectly.

Sometime back, Trichy portion of Rockfort was operated between Trichy and Madurai after a halt of 2+ hours at Trichy.

Many passengers bound for Madurai, booked in Trichy portion, didn't mind about the halt time at Trichy and travelled in the same coach upto Madurai, as those coaches were operated as unreserved coaches between Trichy and Madurai.

At that time, Trichy's share was taken away by Madurai passengers. Nobody bothered about that and actually, there was a big welcome to that train.

There is a talk of operating that train again and in that case, one portion of Rockfort will be going to Madurai.

The same situation.

we can ask the Railway why they are not restoring the Train. For this,the proper answer will come only if we go Through RIGHT FOR THE INFO ACT. Filing a case is also correct but think logically.... who will file a case? we have to meet a lawyer etc etc .... these things are easier if a political person is there to support us but without any such support it is pretty difficult i feel..... but this Right for Info isn't like that they are liable to answer the queries we raise and they can dodge us if it were private but being a wholly owned b y Govt Organization they must answer us and we need to just pay nearly 100 Rupees only at the max. we can get the answer within 1 month max. What do u'll say? shall we try this?

The purpose of extending Rockfort to Kumbakonam is to provide a rail link since it was lost due to broad guage works. During meter guage times, two passenger trains, one from Trichy and another from Thanjavur were running. Kamban express was available upto Mayavaram. The Rameswaram Express was also running with comfortable timings.

After opening of the line only one train in the name of Kamban Express with five reservation coaches common to both mayavaram, kumbakonam, thanjavur and Nagore is operated now.

They have to operate one separate train upto either Thanjavur or Trichy. Then Rockfort will be terminated at Trichy.

I think till such time they will not do it. If they do it now, they have to introduce that new train (upto Thanjavur/Trichy) immediately. They do not have enough coaches.

But it is surprising how these different news items within a short span of time are coming out.
