For the convenience of the passengers, Indian Railways has decided to add one more stop to the Thiruvananthapuram Central Rajdhani Express. Beginning on July 17, the Thiruvananthapuram Central-Hazrat Nizamuddin-Thiruvananthapuram Central Rajdhani Express will halt at the Surat station.
There was a demand for a long time from the public that the train running from Kerala to Delhi and onwards be stopped at Surat. The much-needed step will benefit a large number of passengers.
According to Northern Railway Spokesperson Deepak Kumar, it has been decided to provide Train No. 12431/12432 Thiruvananthapuram Central-Hazrat Nizamuddin-Thiruvananthapuram Central Rajdhani Express with an additional stoppage at Surat station for an experimental period of six month.
Train no. 12432 Hazrat Nizamuddin – Thiruvananthapuram Central Rajdhani Express, which will start its journey on July 17, will halt at Surat station at 07.14 pm. Whereas, train no. 12431 Thiruvananthapuram Central-Hazrat Nizamuddin Rajdhani Express, which will start its journey on July 19, will halt at Surat at 10.15 pm. The train will stop for three minutes on both journeys.
