A NOTE TO ALL VIEWERS :- This is a post of a video; a Journey compilation; every tag in this post is appearing in the video, not tag is random, if anyone feels any tag is unnecessary, please do watch the video first and then point out errors if any. Thank you.
In a sudden trip to Trichy, right in the middle of the monsoon season, the Mysore Mayiladuthurai Express is taken to Tiruchchirapalli; but what is not foreseen is the amount of rains that will lash out and the lightning and thunderstorms that will accompany. The indication is given while at Bengaluru City Jn itself; with Lightning making its presence felt. As the journey progressed; rains started lashing out no
sooner had the train departed from Hosur and continued all the way upto Karur late into the night. Fierce spurts of lightning could be seen every now and then. At Kelamangalam, Kongu Express bound for the national capital was looped for us to cross. We reached Salem Junction at a few minutes to midnight; and here Chennai bound Blue Mountain Express and Bengaluru bound Ernakulam Bengaluru Superfast Express crossed us. An hour later; we find ourselves at the ever busy Erode Junction; where as many as 3 trains are sighted in a span of 20minutes that we take for loco reversal, the Bengaluru bound Kannur Yeshvantpur Express; Trivandrum mail from Chennai and Chemmozhi express bound for Coimbatore. While departing after Loco reversal; the announcement for a fourth train also was occurring; the Mangalore Chennai Superfast Express. After Erode, its a sedate run till we knock the gates of Trichy; delay is maintained. At Trichy an array of locos including localites - WDM2; WDP3A and WDP4D of GOC shed welcoming us at the wee hours of the morning.

Re# 1679738-4            Tags   Past Edits
because of many reason behind it:-
1)I used to play games inside this station when I was a kid
2) friendly disabled cars were available even in MG era
3) used to be my fav destination (even now but currently haven't been to TPJ since 2009)
love my fav loco link GOC WDP3A (it used to run beautifully between VM-TPJ by 12663/64
(but now getting end-to-end E-Loco)
5) I love the typical tea/coffee by local vendors and I used to drink a lot like 6 glass of coffee
6) I used to get down here for VLNK trip (by going with KIK pass)
currently I am missing MG train now and FC service in Pandyan/rockfort exp (where rockfort used to go t Kumbokkonam )

In my recent visit to Trichy, found that Tiruchirapalli Junction is lcoated away from what can be considered the main town while this Fort station is close to City centre and main bus stand
Considering this train having halt at Trichy fort as well as the BHEL station of Tiruchi (Tiruverumbur), this train can halt at TP, and use the freight bye-pass line to Tiruverumbur instead of going and reversing at TPJ which can save about 20 minutes of its travel time at least
Opinions please

TP is in Thillai Nagar area and near old town whereas TPJ is in cantonment area around which has a lot of new colonies have come up. Even the main bu stand is at TPJ.

Yes- but the main town bus stand seems to be the chatram bus stand near the Fort- Major town services from junction bound to places like Srirangam too empty at chatram bus stand and go for a long halt which ideally means changing 2 buses is faster for long distances in Town- only mofussil bus stand is located close to TPJ
