It was good peaceful night journey with family. Booked in advance. We preferred night travel so that we can sleep well and spend enough time with family in Ooty instead of taking rest in Ooty. We took food before boarding the train as train scheduled departure was 10:10 PM from Chennai.
It was nice journey with breakfast and it reached in the shortest time. We had a nice train journey and the train started on time and reached on time. The staff were good and we had nice sleep in the train as we were carrying the neck pillow, else its difficult to sleep.
The journey was good and the train was 1 hour late. We travelled in general coach and the seats were good and the Erode junction and Tirupur junction tea were good. Toilets in the train are not clean but we managed some how and we had lunch at Coimbatore hotel and we went by bus to Ooty.
Many travellers prefer this train because it starts early morning before work time. So they feel itís the easiest way to travel for work. Another reason is its travel expenses are too cheap to compare to any other transport. It start on time is also the highlight of this train.
But in some situation I felt hard to travel because many of people (students, labour, ordinary people) were travelling along with my train but in unreserved compartment there were many people travelling in bad situation. Lack of space is the reason. Many students used to hang on windows of the train to travel for their destination. So I request IRCTC to add two more compartments for unreserved people.
