If you are planning to stay in pondicherry the station dormitory is a great option. 100 rupees for 24 hours and facilities are excellent and clean. It is also close to the beach and bus stand

Hi all. I am posting a trip report for a small journey from WFD to KGI. Hope you enjoy it.
After commuting in all forms of public transport Bangalore offers, a train journey was remaining and I finished my project survey in ITPL and decided to take a train to Majestic. I entered Whitefield which is called Kadugodi station by the people of the area and went to buy my ticket for the DEMU since I wanted to witness the prime minister of the line Brindavan rip WFD. A GY WDG4 led CONCOR rake was in the loop line and the beautiful Golden Chariot was stabled on PF 4. The Marikuppam MEMU entered PF 1 and as I was climbing down the FoB, the passenger from Marikuppam entered PF 3 with a GOMOH WAG9!! :-o. The WAG9 looked so lonely

and like a calf separated from her mother. :-). I bought my ticket and ran to the bakery opposite the station to buy some refreshments. I packed a Black Forest pastry, Lays Chips and a Diet Coke and ran back to the PF to see the signal green and ready to welcome the PM. The PM came with the RPM WAP7 and I was not dissappointed with the show he put up on terms of speed though the cleanliness left a lot to be desired. After Brindavan crushed WFD, the MEMU too left for her destination. I finished my refreshments and was exploring the Golden Chariot. The train looked like it needed a POH(due in 2016) and the vinyl wrap was wearing off. My DEMU came promptly at 4:15 and we set off and I occupied the door on the trackside to catch the King 12008. After the goods terminal, I saw the signal turn and was expecting the king but it was a soldier in the form of a WDG4 twin led BTPN rake. At KJM loco shed. WDP4B gave darshanam and at BYPL, KJM WDP4 led CBE-LTT Express crossed us and after BYPL near BNCE, RPM WAP4 led 12008 blasted past. We soon reached BNC, where two DEMU rakes were on the loop platform and a new DMU rake was on a looP. We were stopped till the NCJ Express with a KJM WDM3D and KCVL Express with an ED WAP4 crossed us. Again we were stopped at SBC home, we stopped till the JTJ Express with a RPM WAP7 and Marikuppam Passenger with a RPM WAP7 crossed us. We reached SBC at 6:10 on PF 6. I ran to the AC Chair Car of the Chamundi Express and the moment I entered, we moved. I had a splitting headache and could not realise anything. After gaining my breath and senses which happened after Jnanabharathi, I was surprised to hear ALCO chugging which was coming from our train. On disembarking at KGI, I saw that not one but twin KJM WDG3A were powering us. I went home and as I sip a cuppa I am writing this.
Thanks for reading.
PS: I had my old phone then hence couldn't click pictures

Hi all.
I wanted to post this trip report earlier but due to a bad back, I am posting it now.
Date of Journey:15/4/2015
Train:12658 SBC-MAS Mail
Coach:S8
Our first year exams were finally over and it was time for the industrial tour. Our batch was visiting Chennai after a long time and all of us were pretty excited. I was booked on a APSRTC from my hostel in Puttaparthi and reached Bangalore at 7:45pm after a 4 hour back breaking ride. My parents were at SBC and I met them and had my first round of dinner. On PF2, the SF ICE from

MAS(12609) arrived with a WAP7 from LGD. After my parents left for home by SBC-KAWR Express, 61 MBA students and 10 MTech students moved into the waiting hall. Udyan Express was backed into PF1 and it left promptly 8:30pm. At 9pm, my roommate's parents had bought dinner for all of us and we had our second round of dinner. 12609 was taken away by a derated KJM WDM2 and on PF3, Sanghamitra was resting. Our rake was backed in at 10:20pm. We were all scattered across coaches S6,S7 and S8. i was in S8 with my buddies and it was a brand new 2014 coach with bio-toilets. Me and my best bud were in the same bay as our teachers(Our Dy Director was to join us at BNC). The train left at 11pm and started picking up speed and reached BNC by 11;10pm. After welcoming our Dy Director, me and my best bud moved over to the first bay where most of our gang was settled. Shortly after some time, we came to an unscheduled halt at KJM, but what followed was pure power unleashed by the WAP7 beast. As we neared BWT, we had our third round dinner sitting on the Upper berths(masala Dosa, lemon rice, pickles, chikki and Cadbury silk). By 1, we all turned in but in what felt like a few seconds, I woke up to see PER at 4:20 and we were on the slow line!!! But mercifully, we were not detained anywhere else and were welcomed straight into MAS PF 10. near PER, we did cross an unknown train with a WAP4. We reahced MAS bang on at 4:40am with the HWH Mail on the other platform. Sai Samithi people were already at MAS to receive us and we proceeded to RA Puram to our rooms for a bath and leave for the Coca Cola plant in Nemam.

Mass booking sir. We had the bus specially booked and it is tough to get seats on LTT-CBE for 74 people and it is not the most reliable of trains either

Posting the second of my three trip reports
Train Number;16116 PDY-MS Express
Date of Journey: 22/4/2015
Coach:C1
Loco AJJ WAM4
After a fantastic vacation in PDY, it was time to head back to MAS and then to home sweet home. Waking up at 4, taking bath and handing over keys took till 5;15 am. The rake of our Express was already on PF1. The C1 coach was an old one 2000 make. The chart showed seats 1-24 were empty and around 10 seats were to be filled up at VM. NDLS SF was stabled on the loop line. Bang on at 5:35, we departed

with a WAM 4 from AJJ at the helm. The train stopped at the two stations enroute to VM ie Villanur and Chinnababusamudram. the train was detained at VM outer for a few minutes and then let into VM. DR-PDY Chalukya Express was awaiting a couple of platforms away with an ED WAP4. We left after a couple of minutes halt. The rake of HWH-PDY was stabled on the pit lines of VM. The rest of the journey was uneventful with the usual crossings of MS-PDY passenger and Kudal Express. Cholan Express was crossed near TBM. Near Kodambakkam, our train was put on the other line ie the one usually used for trains towards TBM and i experienced a twin single line for the first. Without any detentions, we pulled into MS Pf 3 with Chendur on the adjoining platform.

Quite normal for 12657 as it hardly trails any train en-route and runs at MPS throughout. 12658 trails a lot of trains after JTJ and most of the times gets delayed at JTJ, KPD, AJJ and PER.
