Good Morning one and all.Here I present a trip diary of my visit to Chennai in the Month of May 2012.
After a long hiatus of my trips , decided to visit Chennai formerly known as Madras for also Apollo Visit concomitant with visiting some holistic places of Pondicherry.
Although while my thorough search for Trains availability for HWH-MAS Mail and Coromandal ordeal-ed.But I was pertinacious , i kept on finding for new trains from KGP or ADRA Sector,and to my propitious I found PRR-VM Exp with a availability of more than 20 seats.I was jest and impetuously went to the PRS Counter.Booked
tickets for four people and rushed home out of variegated excitement.
The time came , Monday May 21 we took a pvt cab from CRJ and went to ASN for catching the ADRA Local.The Local was almost on time.Severe rush pronounced the situation.As the train ensconded the PF 1 of ASN Jn.
Great ordeal and shove of passengers had to be withheld by us.Saw Sealdah Rajdhani arriving ASN at 7.45am.I was bit excited to see LHB Coaches and exorbitant Rajdhani.
Finally boarded the local and headed towards ADRA.The Local was bang on time.It arrived at ADRA sharp at 9.30am.We ensconded there itself rather than being on the Waiting Room.As we saw sun was scorching we decided to wait for 2hrs in Waiting Room itself.I was bit agog to see passenger chart and was viewing that mind flustered at that moment hearing the announcement "Purulia se Villuparam jaane wali gaadi 1 no Pf pe aa rahi hai.".
Soon rushed to my parents and informed them who were taking a power nap for a small time.Woken them.And with hefty luggage and without a porter.
Saw Prr-Vm Exp with its honking arrived at Pf 1 at Adra station.It was het up about to board Prr-Vm ,a new train, to experience its journey abroad to KPD.
And to my faith and decisiveness , the train was a BRAND NEW ONE.
Brown seat covers,clean and shiny floor, varnished with some shiny material.
Soon the TTE came checking the tickets.We were very lucky to get a coupe and there was no intrusiveness.
