Tamilndau express is faster than GT departs 3 hrs at chennai after GT reaches 1 hr after GT at Delhi due to lesser stops-and is generally not very late

GT stops for 120 minutes in various stations whereas TN stops for 62 minutes only in less stations. GT has got various 1 or 2 minute stops whereas TN has 3- 3mnt stops and 2-2 mt stops.
that is why GT takes more time than tn. running time diff is only 1 hour after deducting stops for both trains.
gt is a old train and is never cancelled - it may go on a different route but is not cancelled, whereas tn is canclled.
choice of train is on the blogger. there are other alternatives like TN Sampark Kranti Express, Duronto (twice a week), Rajdhani, Garib Rath, Dehradun Express etc. Duronto, GR & Rajdhani take less time (28 hrs) than TN or GT. choice is absolutely yours. Comfort wise, both TN, GT are the same.

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...
