Even a passenger can take a max of 1 hour between budalur and trichy but a prestigious train is going to take 1 hour and 40 minutes

Though the TT is revised , 16853 MS-TPJ EXP has crossing with 16854 at SY or VDL , crossing with 12084 at MV , crossing with 16234 at KMU which takes arrival at TJ by 2.55pm - 3pm . so that's the case it reaches TPJ by 4 pm .

One of the Worst and Rogue station in SR . Water bottles / Food items / Biscuits and every items are sold very much higher than MRP . When u ask about MRP , the vendors , static unit shopkeepers abuse u like anything . . . SR is calm about this station's food / water facility complaints . . .

At MV(11.30am) itself platform vendors may tell u to buy lunch from them itself as train will reach VM by 3 pm . dont hear to those cheating words . when train is about to reach Chidambaram(12.10pm) go to D2 Coach . at chidambaram station , there is a platform shop which sells tasty and quality lunch food items like Curd rice , Tamarind Rice , Tomato rice , Sambar Rice etc will be sold at 15 rs per packet . u can see train staffs buying from that shop . buy those if u havent brought ur lunch . dont depend on Mayiladuthurai station vendors .

For Breakfast - there are 2 options . Reaches Chidambaram(CDM) by 6.30 am . Station Canteen sells hot IDLY / PONGAL / KICHADI at affordable rate than local vendors . for quick purchase come to S4-S5 coach while nearing Chidambaram . Else wait till Villupuram ( VM ) . Reaches VM by 8 AM or before . Scheduled departure is 8.25am . Loco change and water filling done there . Go to S1 coach before reaching villupuram . go towards Guard van side , change the railtracks , numerous options for Breakfast ranging from Local Shops to High rated hotels . Never depend on VM station caters . the most arrogant people who loot ur money by all ways . Previous day Idly / Dosa's will be sold at costlier rates .

Train Reaches VM by 6.30pm . Departure from VM is 07.05pm . also loco change from Electric to Diesel happens . either way there will be a halting time of 25-30 min in VM . its good enough for u to get out of the station and buy food in pony road and back . for those who travel in SL / AC , come to S9 coach before reaching villupuram as it will be easy for u to come near the loco and cross the railtracks for reaching pondy road .

A train route is determined by specific factors . traffic congestion / availability of crew etc . after doubling of TPJ - VM , chances are there for routing via TPJ - VRI - VM . also not all trains be converted into electric locos which will cause overload in the power path . hence 70(electric):30(diesel) ratio will be maintained for every electrified route .
