On the whole... A decent trip... From Jammu to vridhachalam... I was allotted with side upper berth. Good for many reasons but with just near entrance.... It was really hard to sleep in night. I need to put my legs out for to my height. 12266 Jammu Tawi - Delhi Sarai Rohilla Duronto Express and 12652 Tamil Nadu Sampark Kranti Express .... Will make a decent connection... In stead of duronto, 12414 Pooja SF Express will be a ideal connection for this 12652 Tamil Nadu Sampark Kranti Express or 12642 Thirukkural Express . Traveling from sarai rohilla to nzm will be a issue.... Leaving auto/ taxi.. No other option. If traveling by pooja... 64062 Delhi Palwal EMU will be handy option. Train was dirty from outside.... But already both 3 ac coach's are clean... And washrooms were also clean.... Coach attendant was friendly... Food was average.... Nothing much to say.... Searching...
more...
for alternative options will be a better one.

this station name is "VRIDHACHALAM" not "vriddhachalam". only single d. admin pl update. even it is wrongly printed in train books. indianrail.gov.in and irctc site and reservation counters follow "VRIDHACHALAM" only.

you can get second sitting exp. ticket upto nyl with resv. upto vri. there will be small difference in fare due to telescopic advantage. I doubt whether this type of booking is possible in e ticketing. this is possible in getting ticket in counter.

sorry friends for not posting the closing comments earlier.
1. this is the one of my worst experience in 16 years of train journey. bed bugs really took the charm out the journey. the bed sheets, pillow, blanket every where, i could find these bugs. attender said, the problem is with the coach, not on the cloths. He was true to some extent. second day, due to sons compulsion, i took couple of fresh bed sheets, those didn't had any bugs.
2. complained to all TTEs but nothing really happened. Even co-
...
more...
passengers tried to pull the chain but to our shock, nothing happened after the chain pulling. train didn't stop. is their any way to remove or disconnect mechanism from a particular coach?
3. One thing i learnt from this experience. never travel in non-regular or weekly trains. regular trains like GT, TN were always maintained in better way than this shabby and unclean tn sampark kranti and thirukural exp.
4. on the same train B1 coach was far better maintained than B2. out of 4 toilets two didn,t had properly closing doors and few hinges were broken and the other two had atleast 3/4 to 1 inch gap vertically when doors were closed.
5. 1st day food was average and second day only god saved me.
6. May god save IR passengers.
happy Railings.

Leaving the complaints part apart,
1. i was using IRI express android application for updating the journey. it worked as charm and using the application is as smooth as makhen. 100/100 marks to the developers. 2.this time i tried to update the location by using auto update option than posting as general comment in the blog. any comments on this? which will be more appropriate or useful ? updating the location in time table or as a comments in blog? or if possible both? please do post your thoughts..! thanks friends. Happy Railings.

I just want to say one thing. I am travelling in train for the past 15 years. Till day I had a mis conception that problem of, UNreserved passengers in reserved compartment, does happen only in north India. that mis conception was broken yesterday. Coaches D 1 to D 4 was filled with UN reserved passengers. Just before getting down, I just queried TTE about that, he replied "train was running UN manned without TTE from MS to TPJ in second class sitting class". May god save Indian railways and reserved passengers. Happy railings.

This station has total 4 platform. platform no.1 is mostly used for journey between VRI and SALEM jn and back. No.2 is used for all movements from TPJ towards Chennai and N0.3 is used for the otherside journey and mostly platform No.4 is used as standby for other platforms. This station has a small cafe between platform 3 & 4. Morning Tea is mostly better. other eatables are also decent. This station has a RESERVATION counter with 2 windows and mostly only one window is manned. SBI ATM, Auto stand, Taxi stand are other facilities available here. Distance between Railway station and bus stand is some 2-3 Kms distance, from where you can avail bus services at frequent and regular intervals to the near by areas like Cuddalore, Chidambaram, Jayamgondam, Ariyalur, Perambalur, Veppur, Attur, Salem, Ulundoorpet, Neyveli (My Home Town) and for few other villages around it.

We used this station a few years back. We hired a car from Pondycherry, and came to this station. And then we took the Chennai Egmore- Rameshwaram Sethu Express to go to Rameshwaram.. It was around 8 at night, and the station was quite deserted and sleepy..
