It will take 3 to 4 hours and initially you will feel the rush since it runs at the office hours. The last two hours of the journey is nice as there will be no rush. Train leaves Chennai by 6:40 AM and reaches Puducherry by 10:50 AM. It reaches Tambaram by 6:50 AM and Villupuram by 9:40. These are the only places you get good food.

It was a very bad experience for me. It took a long time to reach the destination. So next time I'll prefer a bike or bus to go there. I hate that train. But Railway station is near my home and I had a nice time with my girlfriend. The train was not crowded.

The one and only train which goes to the destination is Karaikal Express. I would suggest choosing berth though the seats are not tidy. The journey was amazing. I had a really good time with my family. I would recommend having idly in Kumbakonam. The idyll is too soft and no one can forget in their life time. As usual the toilets are not at all clean. The Railway canteen foods are not in the desired standard, it is better to pack food from home.

Unfortunately, a very short stay in such a pleasant and comfortable travel. We boarded our glass domed car at Calgary the crew were utterly jolly and attentive throughout the whole of our journey. The other travellers were a mix of nationalities. Overall, we all had a good journey.

Being a passenger train it does not have reservations. The overall train is experience is very bad as its too dirty including the toilets. No food or water is available on any of the stations in between. You have to carry on your own. I suffer from road sickness and so had to travel by this train. otherwise AVOID
