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"

Memu to take over Demu from Day 2

The Demu rake, projected as the train to be used for the Cochin City Service with an air-conditioned chair car, will actually run only on Sunday--the inaugural day . The Thiruvananthapuram railway division authorities will replace the country's first air conditioned Demu coach with a normal Memu rake on Monday, when regular service commences. The new train will have eight schedules on the Aluva-Ernakulam-Tripunithura stretch, on all days except Sunday. The train will have one service each to Angamaly and Piravom Road in the evening hours on all operating days.
Railway minister Suresh Prabhu will flag off the Cochin City Service at 10am on Sunday at Ernakulam Junction. “The chief operations manager, southern railway , has informed that the Demu will be replaced with Memu rake on Monday . They said diesel Demu rakes are not operated on railway electrified tracks,“ said a senior Thiruvananthapuram divisional officer.
“Commuters can travel on passenger tickets in the air conditioned coach on the inaugural trip,“ said another senior officer. Authorities will allot Demu later on, once the Ernakulam Railway Goods station (the old railway station behind high court) and the Cochin Harbour Terminus Station are included in the Cochin City Service. The inaugural service will leave Ernakulam Junction at 10.40am to reach Aluva at 11.25am. In the return journey , the special train will leave Aluva at 11.45am to reach Ernakulam Junction at 12.30pm.
