A good journey

Nov 16, 2015
Mode of Transport: Train

We booked our Tickets well in advance by Rockfort Express that leaves from Chennai Egmore every day by 10:30 PM. And reaches Tiruchirappalli Junction by 5:30 A.M. Next day morning. We had the comfort of our son dropping us in Chennai Egmore Station in our car on 31.10.2015, Saturday Night. The Chennai Egmore Station is equipped with all amenities including Wheelchairs/Free Electric Cars for Senior Citizens and the disabled to move within the Platform one end to the other. There are huge LED hoardings displaying the arrival and departures of various Trains around the same time. We had no problem locating our Train as well as our Coach as everything could be easily and visibly seen. We were fortunate that the Train was stationed in the 1st Platform itself. We didn't have the botheration of either walking over the steps carrying the baggage or taking the escalators.

We were serviced very well by the Railways Personnel to protect ourselves from the Air-conditioners chills at times by a Pillow/Two bed Spread warm and clean- and white/and a Woolen bed sheet. We chose to travel by Third A/C Coach. Being Senior Citizens we were charged only Rs. 410/- as against 580/- the normal fare. One has to carry his ID card without fail as otherwise Penalty will stall him or her.

A pleasant sleep after bargaining with fellow travellers a Lower Berth for my wife who is aged 60 and can not claim up the other berths. Online booking doesn't guarantee us the Lower Berths whether we are senior Citizens or otherwise. Fellow travellers had been too good to accommodate us even though most of them were seniors excepting one. I kept alarm in my mobile for 4:30 AM. As we wanted to alight at Srirangam itself. Alarm did not wake me up. All the passengers were fast asleep and no one was aware of the fast approaching Srirangam Station. I firmly believe that Perumal himself woke me up as I woke up with a sudden jerk and got down from my Upper Berth and went to see where we were. Don't be surprised. We were very much there in the Platform of Srirangam Station. I moved fast, told my wife who was already got up and ready to move.

Nice hygienic trip

Oct 30, 2015
Mode of Transport: Train

Had very good time with nice co passenger. Cleanliness is good and awareness is also upto the mark. Train is on time and without any hassle reaches to trichy. As it is an evening train misses the outside greenery but overall it is nice till sunlight is there.

Five & half hours journey in humid conditions!

Nov 17, 2014
Mode of Transport: Train

I took 2nd class compartment for my journey and it was a simple experience. The train stops at major stations and you can see food vendors trying to sell you tea, coffee, eateries, cakes, sweets etc.

A word of warning:
Do not ever buy food stuff sold on the train. Most of the food are not prepared well and it is also stored in unhygienic conditions. If you are travelling by first class better take a plane rather than train. But if you want to experience the mass transport system and enjoy the crowd just get into the second class compartment and enjoy the joyride.

Train travel is the best which is mostly on time. Start early morning and reaches by noon. Time saved. Chair Car travelled and is comfortable. Good snacks and other eatables best available at Villupuram and Chengalpattu. Toilets are bio one and clean. No harassment by any as it an AC compartment.
