Thrissur Railway Passengers' Association, TRPA is the confluence of all the stake holders who are interested in the development of Railway facilities in and around Thrissur. Naturally, all the people who avail Railway facilities from Thrissur and other neighbouring stations are automatically the members of this association. Due to the historic reasons, commuters from Thrissur towards Ernakulam, Kozhikode and Palakkad sides form the active group. TRPA always stands for meeting the public demands and this process is well supported by Railway Men, Political Leaders and the Media in Thrissur. The tireless efforts by TRPA in achieving the long standing basic requirements of Thrissur are well recognised and appreciated by one and all. TRPA is committed to continue its service to the society at large, cutting across all divisions. "Our prime focus is on the sustainable improvement of rail service in the country to world class levels with special emphasis on Thrissur"

T’puram/Palakkad: New divisional railway managers have taken charge at Thiruvananthapuram and Palakkad railway divisions. Sunil Bajpai is the DRM at Thiruvananthapuram while Anand Prakash is the Palakkad DRM. 
    After taking charge, Bajpai expressed hope that the state government would soon step in to fund the proposed suburban railway corridor project. He said the project was an economically feasible and cheaper one to implement than other projects such as the metro rail and mono rail undertaken by the state government. 
    Rajesh Agrawal, the outgoing DRM who had mooted the project, said the suburban rail project was inevitable considering the volume of railway commuters. 
    Prakash, an Indian railway service of engineers officer of 1982 batch, has wide experience in construction and open line operations, especially in tunnel and bridge construction. He has worked in Western Railway, Central Railway, West Central Railway, rail coach factory at Kap urthala, north frontier railway and IRCON.
