Chennai tirusulam station is very close to the airport .. why Indian Railways (IR) is not interested in stopping all their trains here and collect/leave many passengers in this station .. By that way IR can gain more passengers ... As IR is not interested everybody is taking busses from these location to reach there surrounding cities .. is there any hurdle to do this ?

I traveled in this train from KJM to CBE on 27th Dec 2018 in C3 coach. A few observations during the journey. Seats are not at all comfortable for this 6+ hours journey. I would have preferred Sleeper Class Side-Lower seats for this journey.
No vendor comes to sell anything inside the coaches - not even water bottles. Therefore, it is difficult to go to the catering booths / counter in coach C1, C4 and C7, especially if you are seated on a window seat on a 3-seater side and have to ask the other 2 passengers to make way for you.
for senior citizens, it will be a herculean task. And the catering booths / counters are usually crowded. I had Veg Cutlets (6 on 10 - too oily) and Aloo Samosa (5 on 10 - too chewy and not crispy as a good Samosa should be) and coffee (8 on 10) as per IR catering standards.
The other items available are - (I did not buy them or try them) Sambar Rice, Curd Rice, Lemon Rice, Chapati Curry - this is available from SBC until it gets sold out. Then they offer Veg Cutlets + Samosas + Dal Vada (Masala Vada / Parappu Vada) - packaged drinking water + Coffee + Tea + some packed snacks like Potato Wafers etc. I bought my Samosas + Cutlets + Coffee just before the train reached Kuppam.
What exactly is available after that until CBE - I do not know as I did not find it a pleasure to go again to C4 coach to see what is available.
Though there are charging points - my mobile charger could not be inserted into the plug - so the plugs are not the standard ones. I saw another passenger who desperately tried to plug-in his charger going from one seat to another. Finally, I saw him forcefully insert his charger only to see that his mobile still not getting charged.
And those who wish to charge your Laptops during your journey on this train - better DO NOT BOOK a ticket on this train - your Laptop charger will not find any plug that has a 3 pin socket - all are 2 pin sockets.
And the speed of this train is pathetic - too slow for this route - the timings could have been at least 30 minutes faster. And remember - this train seldom reaches CBE at 21:00 hrs.
Therefore I would't book on this train anytime in my lifetime again.

    @all: At this time, the PNR Forum is functioning again, albeit at a greatly reduced volume and efficiency. Refreshing PNRs is a very cumbersome affair. We may expect this to end as well, eventually, as the Govt. tightens these controls further. At IRI, we CANNOT waste any more time on this fruitless...

    @all: The PNR Forum as we know it is OVER. The official website has unilaterally decided to thoroughly block and shut down all access to PNR info.

    There are some minor changes to the PNR Forum: 1. The main PNR feed will only show UN-predicted (by you) PNRs which are coming in. However, if there are replies, the PNR will show and will bubble to the top. Once you predict the PNR, it will go away from the main...
