I happen to travel through this chain frequently /chain/6438 and the thing is there is never time to get down at Vridhachalam Junction and get tickets for the unreserved train , so i and a lot off people simply switch trains and start our journey while the railway officials even watch without any intention to stop us. I dont bother since this is a common practice on this route . But is there a legal way to do this. The ticket is merely 10 rupees which i am willing to buy if it is available at the platform itself.

CGL-DG Doubling updates.
I travelled in 12637 on 14th August to MDU. The following were my observation on the doubling of the CGL-DG line.
1.) CGL-OV: Line constructed and electric posts laid. Electrification work pending.
2.) OV-KGZ: 80% of line constructed and electric posts laid. Still levelling work going on the remaining area.
KGZ-PEI: Line constructed thorough out the section. Electrification works happening in most of the parts.
4.) PEI-VM Line laid and electrification pending.
5.) VM-VRI : Line laid and electrification pending.
6.) VRI-ALU : This is the most worrying section. Even levelling works have not started in many regions, works are done in tits and tatters in this region. Few bridges are left incomplete and very few works have been completed.
But this is the most critical section of the MS-MDU line.
7.) ALU-KLGM : 100% works completed and Signalling in progress, we can expect this line to be commissioned very soon.
8.) KLGM-VLDI: Already a FEDL and under operation, the new line seems to be having good speed limits more than 85kmph.
9.) VLDI-TPJ : Another vision for the future. NO signs of work being started in this region. With 2 huge bridges across kaveri, this line has no signs of progress.
10.) TPJ-DG : Good progress for a line sanctioned after CGL-TPJ. Most of the line has been laid, only in places around MPA the 2nd line has to be laid, otherwise very good progress. However cross over lines have to be done for many stations.
At present in the MDU-MS chord line MDU-DG, VLDI-KLGM and CGL-MS are FEDL lines. This covers aroung 178 KM of the 497 KM strech.
In future we can expect CGL-VM, ALU-KLGM to be completed and very soon to be followed by TPJ-DG.

VM to TPJ is the place where many crossings occur. Railways should give more importance to this particular stretch.
