A Full Journey Vlog of a #train #Journey - #Bengaluru to #Madurai via #Palakkad
This Journey Happened in March 2018. During the onset of Summer, I embarked on a rather long journey from #Bengaluru to #Chennai, via #Palakkad & #Madurai. On a Saturday evening, I left for Carmelram Railway station, to board the 16527 #Yeshvantpur #Kannur Express, which was hauled by an #Erode WDM-3D that day. The rains were consistently pouring down that evening, and there was respite only for a brief period when my train arrived and we departed. By the time we crossed over the state border and reached Hosur, we were already delayed by more than 30 mins. And it didn't end there. With the rains pouring down consistently, I didn't stay up late. With some hope that we will cover up the delay, I called it a day and slept, for I had to wake up the following morning for a 04:40 hrs arrival at #Palakkad.
But when I did wake up to my alarm, I realized that we were nowhere close to gaining up on the previous night's delay, but were in fact delayed further. We pulled into #Coimbatore at 04:50hrs, delayed by 1.5 hrs. And with the little bit of slack in the schedule, we managed to reach Palakkad just at the crack of dawn, at 06:00 am. A Friend and local resident, Avinash Venkitachalam had come down to meet me at those early hours, and we had breakfast a local eatery. My connecting train was the newly extended #Amrita Express to #Madurai via #Pollachi, #Palani & #Dindigul. The train which used to terminate at Palakkad Town earlier was extended to Madurai after the gauge conversion of the Palakkad Town - Dindigul line.
The train had a history of running late and that day was no different. Coming from #Thiruvananthapuam, the train reverses twice in its run, once at #Shoranur, where the slip coaches to #Nilambur (#Rajyarani Express) get dropped off, and the second time at Palakkad Jn., the train pulled in slowly at 08:15, and after a loco reversal, the rebuilt WDM-3A from #Ernakulam shed, pulled us out at 08:48 hrs, nearly 80 mins behind schedule. But with the enormous slack thrust into the schedule, I was hopeful that we will make up for it.
And sure enough, the delay went down slowly. At Minatchipuram, we crossed the Chennai Palakkad Express via Palani. The train was originally running up to Palani, but with gauge conversion was extended to Palakkad. After Minatchipuram, we crossed over the border and entered Tamilnadu. Our first commercial halt was at Pollachi. Post Pollachi Jn., we crossed a beautiful stretch, where in both sides of the track was laced with an array of wind turbines, which was probably handled by a firm in Pollachi.
We then set onwards to our next halt, #Palani, which is one of the 6 heavenly abodes in #Tamilnadu dedicated to Lord Murugan. The station has a really good view of the temple on top of the hill. The Palani hills gave us company for the next few kms. Though it was early Summer, the heat was beating down upon us relentlessly. Dindigul Jn. the convergence of 4 lines, one each from #Trichy, #Karur, Pakkad & Madurai.
The alignment of tracks from Dindigul till #Kodaikkanal road was normal, from where the up line crossed over on top and went to the left, thus making it look like the trains are moving tracks opposite to the usual convention of keeping left. This is the reason of the two crossings of #17616 Madurai #Kacheguda Express & #Guruvayur #Chennai Egmore Express appearing on the left. We moved along briskly and reached Madurai at 13:40 hrs, delayed by 30 mins, thus gaining about 50 mins from the delay with which departed from Palakkad. It was curtains down on the first part of an exciting journey which I undertook.
Also, this was the first time I attempted to do a #Train #Journey #Vlog in #Tamil. So, with the hope that you all enjoyed it, I leave you to watch the video. For people who don't understand Tamil, I have added Subtitles in English. Do let me know your opinion and if you have any questions, put it down in the comments section. Thanks for Watching

Gr8. And such good booking with-not that comfortable timings at RMM.
And that too 12 SL with spl fare is humongous. at the same time there are some spls which cant fill even 4 out of 6 sleeper.
Also good to see 2A and 3A also being booked well.

Those guys handling twitter of PGT are not from kerala or south..they are somewhere frm North. So they dont know the sentiments/problems of people. So they are forced to reply with one standard wordings.

Earlier when twitter complaints started, it was very effective, now days it depends on how you tweet, its like escalation matrix in organization, you mark boss in CC better chance of successful response. i have had following success.
1. Getting overcharging shops in MAS reported/closed.
2. Getting coach attender to work
3. Getting on board cleaning staffs to work instead of taking a free
3. Reporting incidents of unreserved people getting totally uncontrollable where there is a load of them, occupying reserved coaches at night and getting RP/RPF to act. etc.
positive tweets appreciating positive stuff, has been re tweeted many times by even RMs official id.
On the negative side,
1. Bringing to notice progress of project's
2. New trains
3. operational aspect etc.
have got standard canned responses, i still do it more or less like a reminder service.
Recently i have tried to raise issues in COMS application, as well

COMS issue updates are via email and status is available on the COMS website where we can search using any of the fields to see all complaints tracked against that id. Going by the status update cycle it looks genuine as of now.. have tried only once.

This is a good help for us. In any case i guess lot depends on the people also. The previous DRM of TVC was extremely prompt to reply and post relevant updates on twitter. PGT twitter handle only highlights cases of lost & found.
Nowadays TVc twitter seems to be handled by some amateur person....found too many errors in many of their posts, names being mentioned incorrectly etc.
