This tip is for 16779 ( TPTY - RMM ) .
Evening :
halts at Tiruvannamalai ( TNM ) for 30-40 min at PF1 . come out of the station , walk through the road for 100 meters and u have variety of options for tea / coffee / snacks / fruit items . dont depend on items sold on station . costly and hazardous to health . Normally arrives by 05.20pm and scheduled departure is by 05.55pm .
halts at Villupuram Junction ( VM ) for 20 - 30 min at PF2 . Loco Change happens here from electric to diesel . walk towards the engine and cross the tracks and u can reach the pondy main road . variety of hotels / mess available for ur budget . again dont depend on items sold on station . costly and hazardous to health . Normally arrives by 07.25pm and scheduled departure is by 07.55pm .
