Railway passengers travelling to Kerala are becoming jittery as the last trip of the Visakhapatnam – Kollam special train is scheduled on November 28.

The proposal for introduction of a regular train to Kollam, announced in the last Railway Budget, it is yet to materialise.

In a letter to the Divisional Railway Manager, Kerala Kala Samithi president N.M. Pillai noted that all trains to Kerala were overcrowded and passengers fail to get accommodation even during off-season.

This being the Sabarimala season, the trains would be overcrowded from November to January 2014, and devotees travelling to the holy place would face several difficulties.
