If its urgent to travel from Chennai to Bangalore and dont have direct train at the time ....take any train towards Jolarpettai and get down at VANIYAMBADI or AMBUR (Kovai Exp has no stop at Vaniyambadi).......Many buses plying on Asian Highway 45 (AH45) will take you to Bangalore via Krishnagiri, Hosur in 2h 30min to 3hr.

When the DD option was non existent, and the early morning trains like Kaziranga ran late, a cheap option was to take Kovai till JTJ and then take Sheshadri exp which literally arrives as Kovai leaves JTJ

Or we can take DHN ALLP and then take Seshadri if the passenger doesnt mind waiting. Buffer time would be more.

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries.

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far. It gives me immense pleasure in congratulating them for running the team diligently, professionally, competently and above all, without a shred of controversy or bias. The FM position...
