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.

    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...

    A minor update, but may impact many members: Hereafter, FMs will be able to delete invalid Red Flags on Imaginary trains.

    -@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,...
