Great Great Great
Grand Trunk Express is truly the lifeline of Many Small towns lying on GT Route.
It provides a fast connection to the national capital Delhi and Chennai to many small stations lying on that route
No doubt it is somewhat slower than Prestigious Tamil Nadu Express but GT Is no less than TN Despite having more halts It is just 2hrs slower than TN Express betwee Chennai and New Delhi with 24 more halts.
a railfan brought up in small town in MP This train is more than anything for me I can recount numerous journey in this train from my town to Delhi and Bhopal
In my childhood I used to cry to watch this train in evening it used to came at 5 pm in evening.For me No train is bigger than it If you give me choice between Chennai and New Delhi I will truly prefer GT

GT express to TN express is like comparing and saying Charminar is better than HYD MAS SF express. Deep down we all know, GT is awesome and so is HYD MAS SF express. Some trains gets their prestigious status by name

GT is older than TN and is equally faster with stop (recently speeded up too)

its like sayin Coromandal is awesome and HWH mail is slow train but thats not the case HWH mail is also equally faster as Coromandal but people just dont notice its performance with number of stoppage.

Except that old TT of 12840 was perfect. Now, it is like you can't even express it in words.

Grand trunk is literally like the grandpa of the MAS NDLS route, it likes to figure out and take it's time to serve all states. Tamilnadu is young adult around the block which just moves at a faster pace.

These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
