CHANGE IN SEQUENCE OF COACHES OF TRAIN NO.11063 / 11064 CHENNAI EGMORE – SALEM – CHENNAI EGMORE EXPRESS TRAINS

The Chennai Egmore – Salem – Chennai Egmore express trains were running with S9 coach – the direct coach to Mettur Dam – near the engine, followed by coaches S1 to S8.This arrangement was leading to several complaints from passengers as the coaches were not in sequential order.The issue was raised in ZRUCC (Zonal Railway Users Consultative Committee) meeting also.
Shri Ajeet Saxena, Chief Commercial Manager, Southern Railway took up the issue with Central Railway and facilitated change of sequence from 20.11.2016.Now the trains are running with S9 coach near the engine followed by other Sleeper Class coaches S8 to S1.All railway stations enroute have been instructed to guide passengers correctly for boarding the train.

At present, Train Nos. 11063/11064 Salem-Chennai Egmore-Salem Express train, are running with the S9 coach next to the Engine, followed by S1 to S8 in that order, that resulted in inconvenience to passengers in finding their seats/berths. This had been in vogue, with a view to detach the slip coach meant for Mettur Dam in the rake. 

Hence, in coordination with the Central Railway (since the same rake is being used for T.Nos. 12163/12164-Chennai Egmore-Dadar-Chennai Egmore express), Sri Ajeet Saxena, Chief Commercial Manager, Southern Railway, has facilitated change of sequence in such a way that after the Engine, S9 coach will come (as earlier), but that will be followed by S8, S7, S6, S5, S4, S3, S2, and S1 in that order, with a view to avoid confusion. This has been effected from 20.11.2016.  All the railway stations en route have been advised to guide passengers on this realignment of coaches.
