I wish to travel from Chennai to Thiruvannamalai. Since my time of travel is not very fixed, I'd like to take the most frequently available train / route
I'd prefer to do the entire trip by train, preferably in reserved compartments.,
However since direct trains are very few, I'm ready to change trains and / or take the last leg by bus. What are the ideal and most frequent alternatives ?
direct trains - I see these as very few
(b) probably I should change at Villupuram - if so what is / are the best alternative(s) ? should I take the Villupuram - Thiruvannamalai by bus ? how far is the Villupuram bus stand from villupuram train station ? how much do autos charge ? could I request tips and guidance please ..
(c) probably I should change at Vaniyambadi or some place on the MAS - bnagalore lain - IF so could I request tips and guidance please
(d) what other alternatives
thanks in advance *
best regards

As regards the back-breaking journey from Tindivanam, I agree it is, but I think you can put up with it, assuming you can travel 3 hours on road. The VM rail route has never been a sought-after one, from Chennai. Even the Chennai-Tiruvannamalai passenger, during the time it ran, did not live up to the hype it generated.
As for a dedicated bus forum, I am not aware of anything comprehensive existing right now, kind of bits and pieces, but there are some allied road-travel fora like Team-BHP, whic provide
info on routes, road conditions, eateries, etc.
Thanx for your compliments, credit goes to Moderator.
