A good journey

Nov 2, 2015
Mode of Transport: Train

Leg room in the normal AC compartments are very less. As it took some time for my wife to confirm, I could not book 1st class AC. Maybe Indian Railways can put 2 First class SC compartments. Food servicing was good. Cleanliness was okay.

But the return journey train [shatabdi] was not that good including the service of the caterers. They were shouting at the passengers. Maybe Railways needs to put the same caterer for all the trains.

The fastest night express train

Oct 21, 2015
Mode of Transport: Train

Travelled in 2 Tier AC. Price was around 1090 which included taxes and payment gateway charges.

The train was on time and review of the on time performance is very good. Train reaches Chennai pretty early and be aware of the illegally exorbitant rates the autos charge from this station.

Good comfortable class journey

Oct 4, 2015
Mode of Transport: Train

If this is your first time in India and you have boarded trains in the west, you gasp in your breadth - `at last something comparable'. It's a comfortable smooth journey, spacious seats in the first class. A series of items are served for breakfast. Flakes, milk, biscuit, idli/upma vada or bread-omelette, coffee/tea are served over the period of an hour. The whole journey completes in about 5 hours. The air-conditioning is usually optimal, so you are oblivious to the the external Tamil Nadu weather until you step out of the train at Chennai station. It is like a hot wave hitting your face. But a nice decent journey.

I always enjoy going by train, this time I travelled with my parents and the journey was awesome. The coach was neat, clean and the food served was really good. I really enjoyed the journey, also my parents were very happy and they felt very comfort to travel. Thanks to Indian Railways.

Average train travel and service was delayed

Aug 16, 2015
Mode of Transport: Train

We have boarded the train from Krishnarajpooram, Bangalore, it started late. It's one night journey to reach Chennai from Bangalore. Train was not so good. This is an amazing place. I have visited Marina Beach it is second largest beach in the world. Transport facility is very good in Chennai.
