SETC has added a Coimbatore-Pampa SPL service and it runs via Pollachi, Palani, Theni, Kumili, Erimeli. This is the first time im seeing a SPL from SETC from Coimbatore to Pampa. As per the website its route no is 777C. It starts from CBE at 6:00 PM. Pollachi: 7:10 PM. It should reach Palani by 8:30, if it starts from CBE at 6:00 PM. Looks like it will stand in Palani for more time if we go by the timing chart.
