Rameswaram - A DIVINE EXPERIENCE !
This is my recalling of my Rameswaram tour. Sorry of my late posting. My journey to RMM was scheduled in Boat Mail Express to Rameswaram. For Dinner , we had 3 Idlis per member (3 of us travelled - Me and my parents).
The Idlis were somewhat hard and sambar rather with a lack of salt. Only positive was that , it was hot. And usually as I observe with many trains to southern districts , not so many boarded from MS. Finally , my train took

a start. First spottings were of Ananthu on our opposite PF , Pearl city and Pandian (Cholan rake was just kept on PF 4 and that would go to MDU as Pandian. But still lot of UR crowd settled in). The train began to take speed after chetpet. After crossing 2 river bridges , some busy suburbs like T. Nagar , Guindy and some hills at STM , our train slowed near Tambaram. My Formula was just "Observe by eyes instead of camera". (Even my phone was poor in capturing pics at dark and at sunrise.) Now a slow arrival at TBM , with daily commuters rushing towards the UR coaches and some getting into our bay , its just an expected one. After wards RPM - P7 did quite a thrashing of this strech till Singaperumal Koil . The train once again slowed down due to the 20 Km/hr TSR till CGL. The crowd in our bay increased and followed on till MLMR , where they all finally got down. And afterwards , the P7 rode on at 100+ till VM , where we had a dinner once again and had the only hot item that can be found in the station , i.e, Badam milk served by Aavin Vendors.
After That , Lights Off Berths Up.
The newly attatched GOC WDP-3A rampaged through Main Line. After Cuddalore , we were looped at Puduchatiram for crossing with Uzhavan led by a EMD that almost made me not to sleep for the next 1 hr. After that , we made quite a peaceful Xfer with Kamban at Chidambaram. After waking into TJ , the end of the single line , the train went on a rampage in the double diesel line - an experience acquired after a long time. At TPJ , we Xed the Chennai bound Chendur express. After stepping into KKDI line , the time I woke up was when my train departed KKDI Jn. After that no sleep. The sounds of the peacocks welcomed the morning , as we entered South TN. After having quite a monoply till sattirakkudi , before Ramanathapuram , where we were looped for our last crossing - the RMM MDU Passenger. After that we marched our way to the tip of indian mainland - Mandapam. With the sea visible , the pamban bridge came. I chose the best seat for my view since the train was almost empty by now. On one side , people waving from the road bridge - And on the other side the unlimited sea. After making my pleasure in doorplating , I finally arrived RMM at 8:30 - 5 min late.

However, "eligibility" does NOT always mean...

    @all: While we do nominally allow multiple IDs, these multiple IDs are NOT allowed to engage in misuse and "mischief". Voting multiple times in the same poll using multiple IDs, rating each other IDs' blogs using multiple IDs, etc. are classified as "gross misuse". . This is an advance notice that some of the...

    @all: IRI is a PUBLIC information website, like Wikipedia. The voluntarily posted Blogs, Train/Station Tips, Train/Station Pics, Polls, Train TTs, PNRs, etc. comprise the permanent publicly viewable and searchable repository of IRI. A PUBLIC info website is unlike WhatsApp, FaceBook, Instagram, etc. where people post personal pics and other stuff, which CAN...
