If you are coming from Calicut why would you go to Kovai or Tiruppur as you asked in another post? That circuitous route. Its Calicut-Palakkad-Pollachi-Palani-Kodaikanal.

Actually a bit tough. The no. of buses to Kodai is a bit less. But in day time especially morning there are few long distance buses like from Salem which come, so hopefully you can get seats.

When is you exact travel date. If it is june 26, then you can try this link.
CLT-PGT in CBE ICE or CBE FP
PGT-DG in ERS-RMM special which will reach by 11.30. (TN RF needs to confirm, if you will be able to get bus to kodaikanal in night that time)

The reason for coming to coimbatore is that the train reaches there at 4 am from calicut which is manageable time to alight, besides this trian goes to pallakkad junction and not pallakkak town from where the pass train originates. however reaches there at about 230 in morning which is very inconvenient.
Thus the best option is to get down at coimbatore and move to palani by bus and take another one from there. From the suggestions recd this seems to be the option.
How is frequency of buses

Calicut is nearer to Palakkad, so suggested.
Even without considering train, just the bus distance from Calicut to Palani is some 240 Kms. So many KSRTC buses to Palakkad, and immediately you get Pollachi buses there itself and then finally from Pollachi to Palani. The entire journey from Calicut to Palani is just 6 hrs.
Anyway, I travelled a long ago, then it had a frequency of some 1 hr -2 hr between buses. Now no idea.

19577 Tiruneveli Hapa Exp is very badly maintained. Travelled on it on 02Aug16. Coaches are very old and not maintained by WR. Toilets doors not not lock properly,some doors locks are missing, the taps are broken, water leaks and soon the coach is without water. Inside toilets water accumulates all over the floor, stinks badly.
The same is condition of s3, s4, s5 and s6 coaches.
The train has ample time for maintenance as it does not have RSA. Long distance train but does not have pantry.

Could not reply in the same blog as its archved and do not know how to reopen it or to write privately to Kohilan.
Thank you very much brother Kohilan for your suggestion. Could not go on july 17 as planned earlier, went on july 31 from mettupalayam to Tiuppur. The train arrived at 17.45 (10 min late) therefter went to the

rail museum and easily got bus for tiruppur at 18.30, reached SAP theatre at 19.40, took a following town bus to pushpa theatre as suggested and got off at about 19.50. Exactly as said the station is right opposite the bus stop. Had dinner at saravana bhavan and had plenty of time to catch the train.
Thank you so much for you suggestion of going to Tirupur instead of Coimbatore to catch the same train

Alternately if I take the bus from ooty itself for coimbatore i presume it will less time as train is slow. Can I take bus at 4.pm at ooty and reach coimbatore by about 7.30 pm. How is this option, asking you as you are from nearby area.
How is the bus journey considering the scenery, or is the train better. I will be anyway coming to ooty by train thus thought will try the road route to explore it as well.
Finally, your idea of going to tiruppur, are autos available
