Train journey to Tirunelveli will be most comfortable. I travelled in 3rd A/c and mostly this train reaches in correct time. Bharani Hotel is very near to Railway Station and walk-able. We need to take dinner ourselves as train foods may not be safe or good. Don't buy anything inside train.

Really the was on time and overtook all the buses. It was a fast and safe journey. No sudden break, no terrible ride and no engine sound. Started at 8.445 sharp and waited at the passengers who were late. Good hospitality and online booking is helpful for booking the seat, all the seats are available online, to book.

I travelled in INFANT JESUS TRAVELS AT 8. 45 pm bus. Very nice pick-up and non stop express. Really nice. Start at 8. 45 and reach Perugalathur at 9. 20 pm and some halt for getting reserved passenger. Then start at 9. 40 and reach 1. 20 for tea break near Samayapuram and reached Tirunelveli at 5. 30.

I prefer AC coaches of any grades. Choose any South Indian food items. Mostly the train arrives on time. You can get some good food items in all the stations on the way, especially Madurai, Virudunagar etc. It will be a nice journey if you go with your family and friends.

Uneventful journey as the train left on time and reached Tirunelveli on time. Did not try train food as we had taken some from home, could not see that many vendors in the train. Nothing different from the very many trains running all over India but surprisingly, the inside was cleaner (not the toilets) than some other trains that we had travelled.
