Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu has agreed to consider introducing daytime express train between Rameswaram and Chennai, said MP A Anwar Raja.
Talking to reporters here, the MP said after he had taken up the issue with the Railway Ministry for improving the rail connectivity to Rameswaram, Mr Prabhu has agreed to introduce daytime express once a week on trial basis and later increase the frequency after studying the patronage pattern. The day train would be of immense use to north Indian pilgrims who reached Chennai in the morning
and spend the whole day to catch the evening or night trains to reach Rameswaram, he said.
Union Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has agreed to extend the four-lane up to Mandapam, said Anwar Raja

After a long time, the announcement for day time south bound train from Chennai has come. Hope it will be introduced soon, without waiting for completion of MDU-Villupuram doubling. This full day journey train should have a combo accommodation of sleeper as well as chaircar.
