Surprisingly, tickets not available, as I realised today, between CBE and SA in 12680 Inter City Express, even though there is quota for SA-MAS. One has to book ticket to Bommidi [BQI]

And for the down journey again a white stallion from RPM, it was WAP-7 #30398 #30358 I think it was recently commissioned to RPM

Trip report :
This is to share my experience on board 12679 Chennai central- Coimbatore Main Junction Intercity Superfast Express on 22/3/2015.
I have traveled many many times on this trunk route but never enjoyed as much as this particular trip,
Reached Chennai central at 13:30 a nice one hour before the departure time, 12680 from CBE was expected to arrive at 13:50, the arriving 12680 returns as 12679 Intercity express and platform was not yet allocated. So went around doing some RF, 12760 Charminar superfast bound for Hyderabad was on Platform 9, Bangalore bound Intercity was on platform 5, Pinakini was getting ready to depart from 7, some passenger train was on 8 did not notice the train board, 22801 Vizag –
...
Read more...
Chennai central express was on platform 11. Pinakini was hauled by LGD WAP-7 #30318. Then the announcement was made that 12680 will be arriving at 13:50 on platform 10, I knew it already as that was the only platform available and I was in mid way of the platform, when the Intercity was arriving with RPM WAP-7 #30341, at Chennai central this train was announced as Kovai Intercity superfast express. After my coach D-7 was empty I boarded and I had a track side window seat num 91. And for the down journey again a white stallion from RPM, it was WAP-7 #30358 I think it was recently commissioned to RPM. Then we departed 5 min late from Platform number 10. The pilots where cautiously pulling out Coimbatore bound Intercity express out of Chennai Central towards Basin bridge junction. Just as we left BBQ, MAS bound SBC intercity was waiting for clearance to enter Central, it was hauled by a ED WAP-4. As we started to accelerate near Vyasarpadi jeeva, Yeshwantpur- Kamakhya weekly AC superfast express was again waiting for clearance. After PERAMBUR the pilots started showing their wit, watta run was it upto avadi, but after crossing avadi we came to a dead stop, no idea what was ahead of us. After halting for 5 min for unknown reason, we started again slowly, we were under caution upto Thirunindravur. Then again we started to accelerate and then slowing down this was the case upto Thiruvallur, were I saw MAS bound West Coast express. Then Patna bound Sanghamitra superfast was entering Thiruvallur close behind west coast express. And one more thing to note from MAS to JTJ I witnessed 9 freight trains which were hauled by ED WAG-7, AJJ WAG-5 Mued together, BZA WAG-5’s etc., after a delay of 20 mins we arrived at AJJ. It was busy with some EMU’s. After halting there for two minutes we departed at 15:52. Then after it was a nonstop run until KPD, to mention here just before KPD there is a place called Tiruvalam, near the station SR has setup a concrete sleepers manufacturing unit heaps of sleepers were stacked there. We entered KPD with the same running delay of 20 mins, when we were getting ready to depart, announcement was made that TPTY-CBE intercity express would be arriving in platform number 4. We started to run again with gud speed it was an awesome run between KPD and Ambur.
As we were entering Ambur on the other line it was MAS bound DD from SBC entering slowly for its scheduled stop, what a coincidence was that both the trains stopped at the same time and departed at the same time which was nice to watch. Again the run was awesome with high speed freight crossings, Intercity looked like a king. As we were about to enter JTJ it was MAS bound SR’s prestigious train BRINDAVAN SF express crossed us. On platform number 3 Dhanbad/ TATA bound express from ALLP was departing behind Brindavan. As we departed from JTJ I felt a bit hungry and my legs were a bit cramped so thought of going to the pantry which was just after D-6. So went in and ordered dosa, they don’t serve plain dosa, we had to order masala dosa which I did and it was served hot. Stood there in the pantry and had them, it was not that much delicious but was OK. Bought cool RAIL NEER and was door plating for some time, upto Morappur. In the meantime had a chat with the TTE, he was Suresh Kumar Yadav from UP, a little older than me in his late twenties, I asked him how he ended up here in this train down south and he told that he is with SWR and at times takes up SR trains. He did not understand Tamil at all, he was checking tickets and talking to passengers in English and Hindi which many did not understand. He told that he faced this problem always in Tamil Nadu.
Then the time came for the moment, the crossing between 12679 and 12676 MAS bound KOVAI superfast, on a personal note I love both these trains, running in an aggressive schedule, hitting MPS most of the time. One would love to watch both of them cross, and then came the stray of light from distance it was just outside Morappur, we had to slow down as there was TSR and then the “Superstar” the name that I have given for Kovai, rattled past us with unknown road number WAP-7 of RPM, I wanted a MPS crossing but could not get it, but was happy to see my “Superstar” doing a decent speed. Then again the next train made me to door plate for some more time it was MAS bound 12244 CBE-MAS Shatabdi Express, the gap between Kovai and Shatabdi was just 9 mins, I had turned the timer in my mobile to check it, just 9 mins running behind Kovai !!! it was hauled by WAP-1 of RPM. I came to my seat as we stopped at Bommidi late by nearly 30 mins. Then again hitting MPS mostly, we reached Magnesite junction, we were made to wait for entering into Salem Junction. At 19:45 we were at Salem junction the divisional head quarters, clean and neat station. Personally I love the journey between SA and CBE as the night sets in and the cool breeze starts to wander over you, and your favorite train running at top speed what else would a rail fan want. There was no unnecessary stopping’s and it was continuous run upto Erode. Departed from ED at 20:50 delayed by 30 mins. As we departed ED Jayanti Janata express bound for Mumbai CST was entering. The run was smooth and high speed till Tiruppur, were CBE-Tuticorin / Nagercoil express was entering simultaneously with ED WDP-4B. We departed TUP after a two minute halt, at Somanur we crossed RPM WAP-7 hauled Nilgiri Superfast bound to Chennai. Crossed Irugur junction smoothly again hit MPS till Coimbatore north junction, halted there for 2 mins and started towards Coimbatore main junction which was the final stop, as there is enough slack time between CBF and CBE, reached on time at 22:15 without any delay :P, entered Platform 2 slowly and MAS bound 12674 Cheran superfast was on Platform 1 with RPM WAP-7. Took an auto and reached home at 22:30.
And to mention I had a mobile camera only, so bare for the picture quality. Thank you.
Please give your views on my first trip report. Thank you.
Overall rating: 4/5
Food: 3/5 can be better
Speed: 4/5 hits MPS most of the time
Crowd: Packed (as it was weekend)
Rail fanning: 5/5
Cleanliness: 3/5
