Coimbatore: The Citizen’s Voice Club has appealed to the Union Railway Minister and the Union Minister of State for Railways to consider renaming Chennai – Coimbatore Intercity Express.
In a memorandum, the secretary of CVC, C.M. Jeyaraam, pointed out that there are two day express trains on the Chennai – Coimbatore – Chennai sector. Chennai – Coimbatore Express arrives at Coimbatore at 1.40 p.m. and leaves for Chennai at 2.05 p.m. Coimbatore – Chennai Intercity Express leaves Coimbatore in the morning and from Chennai arrives at Coimbatore at 10.15 p.m.
Tickets issued to passengers travelling on the Coimbatore – Lokmanya Tilak Kurla Express also has the name of the train printed as Coimbatore Express.
To avoid confusion arising out of similar names of trains, Mr. Jayaraam suggested that the Coimbatore – Chennai – Coimbatore Intercity Express could be named as Siruvani Express.
