Southern Railway Zone



The Southern Railway (SR) was first established on 14th April 1951. Its headquarters is located in Chennai, Tamil Nadu. It includes six divisions: Chennai, Madurai, Trichy, Salem, Palakkad and Thiruvananthapuram.
This railway zone has a total route of about 5098 km. The Southern Railway network covers the state of Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Pondicherry and small portions of Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. The Southern Railway was created merging the three state railways i.e. the Madras and Southern Mahratta Railway, the South Indian Railway Company and the Mysore State Railway. More than 500 million passengers travel on this network every year.

This zone differs from the other zones as its revenue is derived from passengers and not from freight. Chennai Central, Madurai Junction, Tiruchirappalli Junction, Tirunelveli Junction, Thiruvananthapuram Central and Coimbatore Junction are the most important and profitable stations under Southern Railway Division. Currently this railway zone are converting all lines to broad gauge and improving stations, platform coverings, catering stalls and automated signaling system to avoid accidents. Some important trains of Southern Railway are: Tamil Nadu Express, Chennai - Delhi Duronto Express, Rajadhani Expresses, Kerala Express, Alleppey Express, Mangalore Mail, Janshatabthi Express, etc.
