Bad experience

Feb 3, 2016
Mode of Transport: Train

Its a sitting train. Took almost 8 hours to reach coimbatore whereas we could have reached in 7 hours. Really bored to sit for 8 long hours. Also the seats are not comfortable. Sitting in 2 people place very cumbersome. Annoyed at some point. Since unreserved people are boarding in the reserved compartment and occupying the unclaimed seats. Lots of rush and the food by irctc is the worst. Dont buy anything from the irctc staff.

Nilagiri express is the best one to choose

Sep 30, 2015
Mode of Transport: Train

From chennai if we can go by nilagiri express. It will reach coimbatore by 5AM. So that we can plan lot of places during day timings. Train timings are punctual. According to the lot of trains from Chennai to Coimbatore, Nilagiri express is the best one to choose.

Train travel from Chennai to Diyanalinga temple

Apr 8, 2015
Mode of Transport: Train

The ticket we can book only through Tatkal. As it was Monday night we got the ticket easily. The journey was not so good as the compartment door was not closing. So the wind flow was high disturbing our sleep. The train reached at 5 Am. We got a bus to Gandhipuram Bus Stop. From there we got a bus at 5. 20 Am to Diyanalinga. The driver was not in a hurry mood. So we had a nice journey. We reached at 6. 15 Am to Isha yoga centre.

An overnight train travel was good

Mar 24, 2015
Mode of Transport: Train

As we were travelling in a group, we enjoyed the journey. We had also booked the tickets in bulk on the first available date. So we got accommodation in two contiguous compartments. It was only an overnight journey. As friends and family were travelling in a group, we enjoyed the journey very much.

Good sleep in night journey train

Mar 17, 2015
Mode of Transport: Train

Start at night 10 clock from Chennai Central and reach Coimbatore last junction at 6.20 am. So, after boarding the train in which we slept well. So, it was a good train journey experience. Nothing further to explain. If you want to go to Ooty try Nilgiri Express the train up to Mettupalayam Junction.
