Train was on time and we didn't wait extra hours for its arrival.We were provided with sleeper class. The coach was clean and perfect. I would recommend everyone to have a tea and vada pav at Erode Junction, where the train will be hold for half an hour. By the time everyone can have their food, water and other refreshments. To be frank the toilets were not cleaned regularly and got irritated. The whole journey passes through nice sightseeing and charming rivers.

The trip was very nice and peaceful, the highlight of the visit was the train journey. Even though pantry car was not available in Karaikkal Express, you can obtain food from some stations. If you are going from Kerala you should take the Karaikkal Express and you should get down at Nagpattnam and from Nagpattnam you should board a passenger train to Velankanni.

Roads are good. Except for a short distance before Nagapattinam. I traveled from Thrissur to Velankanni in October so probably its done up by now. It was a nine hours drive excluding breaks and the total distance is about 490 kilometers. At some stretches the four lane highway is incomplete the road conditions are good.

The train was not on time. As it is it takes really long to buy a ticket from the Nagapattinam Station. Maybe because it was the festive season. The train was not well cleaned. The AC coaches were also very dirty. In so many places it was waiting for signal. From Trichy so many peoples entered into the AC compartment, but the ticket checker did not ask them to get into the unreserved compartment. So no safety in 2 tier AC also.
