Awesome scenery on the way !!!

Jun 28, 2016
Mode of Transport: Train

Train experience was awesome on the whole. And there were no delays during the arrival and the climate was awesome after and many people live at Bangalore who can easily understand Tamil and English. So it was more easier to locate my hotel. Train journey was peaceful saw a movie also in the train. And it just takes 5 hours to reach from Chennai and we won't be much bored during the journey.

Train journey offers a Beautiful views seen many trees

I really liked the train journey in Brindavan express where the seatings were top notch and i really liked the foods inside the train they were upto my expectations.

We can easily sit comfortably and there is a lot of space in between the rows and we can have a nice breeze as the fans were working up to the mark.

There were around 6 fans for every columns and around 12 members can sit and enjoy the ride.

I really liked the samosa in jolarpettai station on the way to bangalore.

If i go via this station I am sure I will buy samosa.

They were selling Idly's, Dosa, Pongal and vada and cool drinks like pepsi, coke etc.

Water bottles were neatly packed and cheap so even low class people can afford.

Toilets were not up to the mark but way more than my expectations.

As its a day time travel i don't have time for checking the beds.

Really loved the journey.

Good journey

Oct 16, 2015
Mode of Transport: Train

Can't sit, comfortable spacing are very less. Usually, seats in AC Chair Car are well-cushioned and push-back. I found the push-back lever but there is not even 1mm gap at the back to push the backrest behind!

This seat reminded me of the last row in Quanto. It is barely enough for a person of average build like me. At 5' 8", I was just able to squeeze in and get out of it by banging my knees against the seat in front a couple of times. If I were 6' tall, I guess I would have had to go for knee replacement surgery if I managed to fit myself into that trap!

Better than road travel when air travel is expensive

Jul 28, 2015
Mode of Transport: Train

As usual a typical train journey. Train was noisy - non-stop chatter boxes - a team of middle aged women - never had the common sense. That train leaving by 6 Am many will continue their sleep. But for my pleasant surprise the train reached 10 minutes ahead of the scheduled time.

Tracks to destiny!

Mar 4, 2015
Mode of Transport: Train

It is better to pick this train as it always starts on time and arrives on time. The tracks cover the shortest journey time. Along the way it stops at Arrakonam, Vellore, Bangarpet, Cantonment. Alongside it passes through few borders of Andhra Pradesh.
