I went for Pinakini Express and this train is perfect on time. It has a pantry car facility for less distance also. Within three hours I reached Nellore from Chennai. In this train only two classes were available chair car AC and chair car normal. I travelled by AC chair car. Toilets were clean in AC class and food service was available.

We had a good journey by train and felt really chilled on the way. We boarded at Nellore station in the morning at around 4:30; I got into my coach and got my seat. I had a hot coffee on the way. The train next reached the Gudur Junction. I had taken breakfast which was fantastic.

I enjoyed a lot travelling by train, I mainly wanted to say that Chennai Central Station is probably the nicest Railway Station in the whole of India! It has ample seating for anyone waiting for a train, and best of all there are quite a few shops and food stalls - there was even a bookshop selling Classics!

It was a great journey with my friends and we enjoyed a lot during our journey by playing games and chitchatting and also the journey was very good in terms of seating- a very comfortable seating, superb speed when lags at any station. Good timing- it was late when I was boarding but reached the destination perfectly on time.
