Guys my first post here!
Me and my friend have an event at Sastra Univ. Thanjavur on 22nd Feb, which would get over at about 6 pm. The issue is, we stay in Secunderabad, and I have the SC-Shalimar Weekly AC Express to catch on 24th morning, as I have another event in Kolkata.
How do we get back from Thanjavur to Secunderabad, preferably by 23rd, so that I am sure of boarding the SC-Shalimar AC Express?

Welcome to IRI Sriraj.
The quickest route that comes to mind is Thanjavur-Chennai-Vijaywada-Secundrabad which involves changing two trains. But 22nd being a Sunday, its very difficult to get a reservation on a Thanjavur-Chennai overnight train. But if you can work that out through Tatkal, you can then take the Jan Shatabdi/Coromandel exp to Vijaywada from Chennai on Monday morning and then the 4 pm train from there to reach your city by 10 pm.
There is a direct train though from Thanjavur to HYD but that leaves Thanjavur a good 2
hrs before your event concludes. Surprisingly tickets are still available in all classes in that train. /train/timetable/21627/790/844

Welcome to IRI...Things look little tough as most of the weekly trains only cater to your need and unfortunately they are not matching well with your requirement. The best one i suggest is RMM-BBS Exp on Sunday afternoon which will drop you at Vijayawada on Monday morning from where you have good number of trains to secunderabad. See if it holds good for you.

Thanks a lot for the alternatives provided :)
The MDU-KCG and the RMM-BBS just are a bit too early, otherwise they would have been perfect.

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    -@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. Also,...

    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...
