Doc, the Ranipet branch came later. Initially Walajah Road was called Arcot, which can be seen in the early maps.

Not much change it timings between 1931 and today for the two trains 23/ 24 Express (today's 2609/ 2610) and 7/8 Mail (today's 2657/ 2658).

Yes there was. The line was closed to passenger traffic some years ago. Incidentally Royapuram - Walajah Road - Arcot was the first railway line to be opened in South India on 1st July 1856.
