Second class was in good condition with comfortable seats

Mode of Transport: Train

The train is always on time and reaches the destination very quick. I travelled in second class and the seat was comfortable and was in good condition. The toilet was also very clean. They provided variety of food like sandwiches, veg biryani, samosa, and bread omelets and it tasted good.

There was no delay

Sep 22, 2015
Mode of Transport: Train

This is a night train, starting from egmore Chennai. I booked 2 tier AC tickets in Tatkal. The train starts exactly at 11:30 PM from Egmore. No delay. It reached Salem before the scheduled arrival time that is 6:30 AM. Actually the train reached at 6:15 AM itself. The AC was not enough, so we had to switch ON fans all the night. Fans are too noisy. Toilets were clean.
But overall experience of sleep in train was OK. No vendors wandering in the compartment during the night.

A very comfortable experience and well-maintained

Mode of Transport: Train

We travelled in a night train. The ride was really very smooth and there were no jerks. Hence we had a good nights sleep. Seats, pillows and bed sheets were in good condition and also the toilets were not bad. They also did not stink except for a few instances.

Six hours journey by train

Sep 4, 2014
Mode of Transport: Train

Had a comfortable journey No problems at all. Train was on time and I had booked the tickets in AC. Slept like a log and reached my destination in 6 hours. Toilets were not that clean but one cannot complain. Best way to travel is by train. Recommend it.
