Well known engineering manufacturer, Lakshmi Machine Works (LMW) has provided ₹2 crore to Indian Railways to renovate Periyanaickenpalayam railway station under its CSR programme. The station, between Coimbatore and Mettupalayam, serves large number of employees of LMW as well as the students, teachers and staff of Sri Ramakrishna Mission Vidyalaya and other public. The Railway Minister Shri Prabhu is dedicating the new station building today from Coimbatore through video conferencing.

Udupi Station has only some light refreshment stalls on PF 1. PF2 has only a small strip of shelter like a village R.S.
The station is slightly on an elevated level. There is an elevator to reach the car park from just outside PF 1.
A small budget lodge and an eatery is there just behind tourist car park. Udupi city centre is about 4 kms from the station and Udupi-Manipal highway is about half a km away.
auto facility seems to be there, although I am not sure if it functions effectively.
The display of coach position is interesting at the notice board. It does not show position of coaches from engine and direction. Instead it shows a coach will stop at the number where it is displayed. For example in our train 22475, engine was at number 24 on the platform, where it stopped. Our coach was 10th from engine. The display notice mentioned A1 would be where 14 number is on the platform. Bit confusing for non regular passengers.
There are just one or two porters at the station who normally show up only before a train is scheduled to arrive. Unless, we request the station staff to call him over his cell phone.

Thanks, I could not forget the best ever breakfast which I had at UD while I was on journey on 56640. The train stopped here for about 20 minutes due to some issue (requiring a foreign passenger to buy ticket who boarded without ticket, the railway police helped her too much. She missed to get down at Karwar from Mangala express as she slept & Mangala was about 12 hours late. She thus got down from Mangala at UD and got into this train).
This gave us chance to relish fresh tasty Neer dosa, crispy samosa, juice etc. If not for this halt due to a foreigner we would not have got chance to have this superb food at UD.

Retiring Room facilities at Nagpur Junction are one of the best. It has a Maharaja Lounge, to stay like a king. They have adequate accommodation and maintained well by outsourced team.
