All Thrissur trains were full so booked to Shornur Junction for destination Guruvayur. Impressed with Shornur Station. Clean, plenty local buses to main Bus Stop- From there got a bus waiting to Guruvayur. Overall, easy for me to travel, single lady with daughter. Travelling in Kerala- without knowledge of Malyalam language. Kerala is surely Gods own country.
Train journey was very comfortable (2 AC). Train started at 8 pm and reached Mangalore Junction the next day morning by 8.30 am. Mangalore Junction is not much connected with public transport. But I got a cab to drop me to Hotel Health Resort at Mudabidri. Clean and comfortable train and journey is ever memorable.
Really reliable and fast service. Slept in train and got there in the morning. Dirty toilets but good food on train. It booked my seats in a sleeper coach; it is important to carry bedding on train. Food was hard 2 come by so it would be in your interest to carry your own food.
