Between tbm and ms it has a huge slack so it will reach ms on time or most of the days it is reaching ms before the scheduled time.

At MV(11.30am) itself platform vendors may tell u to buy lunch from them itself as train will reach VM by 3 pm . dont hear to those cheating words . when train is about to reach Chidambaram(12.10pm) go to D2 Coach . at chidambaram station , there is a platform shop which sells tasty and quality lunch food items like Curd rice , Tamarind Rice , Tomato rice , Sambar Rice etc will be sold at 15 rs per packet . u can see train staffs buying from that shop . buy those if u havent brought ur lunch . dont depend on Mayiladuthurai station vendors .

Even a passenger can take a max of 1 hour between budalur and trichy but a prestigious train is going to take 1 hour and 40 minutes

Even Rockfort takes nearly 45 min between GOC and TPJ.This is for even if train arrives late at GOC it will arrive ONT or BT at TPJ this is called slack.(Distance between GOC and TPJ is 3km)

Slack could be 30 to 45 minutes but more than 1 and half hour is too much

Though the TT is revised , 16853 MS-TPJ EXP has crossing with 16854 at SY or VDL , crossing with 12084 at MV , crossing with 16234 at KMU which takes arrival at TJ by 2.55pm - 3pm . so that's the case it reaches TPJ by 4 pm .
