5.0/5

Posted 28 June, 2017

Posted by Sowmya Roy Firstly I felt very bore. Then at last when we reached to chennai central we entered to nilagiri express then our journey became very interesting. I liked it so much. Finally we reached Ooty by car. And there we enjoyed a lot. At morning time we get foam out of our mouth when we we blow out.Its really a great experience.I felt very bad when we are leaving Ooty.

"Nice trip"

4.3/5

Posted 25 November, 2015

The train is more comfortable for the journey and it was easy for us to reach Mettupalayam on time so that we can catch the hill train. It is more convenient for the passengers from Chennai to reach Ooty. Had a good sleep in the train and it is more remember able one. Nice trip and had fun.

"Comfortable train and convenient timing "

3.9/5

Posted 18 June, 2015

Comfortable train - nice journey - always preferred this train. Timing is most comfortable. Get in, sleep, get out early in the morning. Generally found neat, the food is passable, usual, bed-sheets two pairs, napkin and heavy rug. Not very comfortable with these at times as one gets stale smell.

"Good toy train travel to Ooty"

3.6/5

Posted 25 February, 2015

Chennai to Ooty by toy train was such a nice experience. The toy train starts after this Nilgiri Express reaches, Mettupalyam Station. It was good with very pleasant weather, very economical when I planned in advance, a weekend of 2 or 3 days is sufficient.

"Train travel to Ooty"

3.6/5

Posted 17 December, 2014

The ticket fare and safety is fine at the train travel. That’s why I choose train to go to Ooty. This train is so long that the Arakkonam Station, the electronic boards are not reflecting the coach numbers so it is very difficult. We waited in the nearby forest and at the middle of the platform. But, our coach is at last after the platform. We run fast and catch the train and board into the coach. If we travel with family, definitely we will not be able to catch the coach. It is one of the worst train experience.

"Food and other refreshments were served from the pantry"

4.3/5

Posted 16 October, 2014

The Nilagiris Express (12672) is always on time, because it starts at 7-45 pm at Mettupalayam and goes to Chennai via Coimbatore. My acccommodation class is 2 AC. The seats were in good condition. Travellers can take food items either at Erode or Salem. The toilets are clean. Food, water and other refreshments are served from the pantry car. The bedding, towel are very clean. I was never harassed for tips. The staff in the train serves with smiling face.

"Excellent train travel"

5.0/5

Posted 10 October, 2014

I travelled in Nilagiri Express train (First class) from Chennai to Mettupalaiyam and went by CAB to my booked hotel. Its really a very good moment for my wife and I . The best transportation is the train. We returned back from Ooty by KPN Travels sleeper class bus. Its was an awesome journey and I enjoyed my honeymoon trip.

"The arrival & departure was on time "

3.6/5

Posted 10 July, 2014

It’s very good to travel by train rather than by bus or car for a long distance. The train departed on time and arrived in time. As usual, toilet facilities are not worst. The cleanliness in train is not worth for the money and the tax we pay as citizens.
