It also said that less than 15 people are travelling in the three-coach train during each trip in the 8-km corridor and the operational expenditure per day is over Rs. 35,000 whereas the daily income is around Rs.500. 

Mr.Sinha, Thiruvananthapuram Divisional Railway Manager, said a steam engine rake would be introduced between Harbour Terminus and Ernakulam Junction.
