TamilNadu Express to Delhi

by Marasubra

Can anyone please tell me what the facilities and services are like on the TN Express to Delhi. I'm planning to take my parents there but considering it is a 33 hour journey wondering if it's a good idea because of their age. I want to be sure that they will be comfortable all the way. Appreciate any advice.

Indian Railways are comfortable yet cheapest means of transportation especially for long distance journeys. In order to enhance the comfort levels, you may choose higher class for Travel. Indian Railway offers
a) Sleeper Class (Sleeping facility without AC) Cheapest One under reservation category.
b) Third AC (Sleeping Facility + AC)
c) Second AC (Sleeping Facility + AC+ Enhanced Comfort)
d) First AC (Sleeping Facility + AC+ Enhanced Comfort+ Cabin) the costliest class available under reservation category.

Apart from this, they also provide options for fast/slow trains. The best train on your route is Rajdhani Express which not only provide all the above comforts (No Sleeper Class available) but also provides food onboard & took less time to reach the destination.

For Rajdhani,
Train No. is 2433
Starts from Chennai Central at 0610hrs & reaches Hz. Nizammudin (Delhi Only) at around 1015hrs (next day) i.e it took around 28hrs approx.

The only problem which u may face is availabiity of Reservation. To cope up this problem, Indian Railway offers 'Tatkal' service wherein u can book tickets at the max five days in advance excluding the day of travel by paying a nominal fees. For example, for journey on 6th, this service opens at 1st.

I hope this will help

Book a 3tier AC

Re: TamilNadu Express to Delhi

If you are very keen to take them by train,book a 3tier AC accommodation for them .It would be comfortable.If you don't get then 2tier AC accommodation. Food and drinks like coffee are available on the train.Beddings are provided for free till you reach Delhi.

Since they are aged, better would be by Rajadhani express where it would be more comfortable than TN EXPRESS.

Ofcourse if you are able to afford, flight is the best.

the rajdhani is a better option if you cannot afford flight tickets.
Have a safe and comfortable trip.

Travel Tips for Chennai (Madras)

Namaskar and other gestured greetings

by tayloretc

The traditional placing palms together happens here too, but you’ll also see a modified salute—right hand held vertical at the center of the forehead—and fingers grouped together at the lips. This last when used as a greeting asks whether you have eaten, and is mostly used by someone who knows you well enough to ask after your well-being. It can also be an invitation to lunch, assuming you know the person pretty well.

One of Chennai's popular pubs. `Bike and Barrel' seems to be where a lot of the young student crowd heads to at the end of the day.

Quaint memoribilia for decor, a pool table and a DJ, are among the things that define the look and mood

Fort St George Church

by illumina

St. Mary's Church is the oldest Anglican church in India. It was built in 1678-80 AD. The tombstones in its courtyard are the oldest British tombstones in India. This ancient prayer house solemnized the marriages of Robert Clive and Governor Elihu Yale, who later was first benefactor of Yale University in the United States. The church is popularly known as the 'Westminster Abbey of the East'.

General Post Office

by Willettsworld

The General Post Office dates back to the late 19th century and is another superb example of Indo-Saracenic architecture. Facilities available are speed post, registered post, parcel, insurance, e-billing, and e-posting.

Open: 8am-8.30pm Mon-Sat, 10am-5pm Sun.

Besides having always wanted to see some of the south of India, this trip was built around visiting a girlfriend who was a Missionary there. So, on Sunday after church, we travelled in their old rickety bus to 2 villages far out of Chennai, to visit and the Pastor spoke to the people for their message.

View along the way from the bus.

Ladies of the village listening to the Pastor speak. The tiny ramshackle 'building' in the background is their "Church". Shortly after I was there, it competely fell down, but with the Lord's provision, it is being built again!
