There is only one train from Bangalore to Madurai (Mysore to Tuticorin express). The tickets got booked in two hours on the same day when the booking opened. It is very inconveneient for the public especially for the passengers travelling with kids.
There should be special train from BLR (SBC) to MDU route to clear XXXXXXXXXXTRA rush. Hope that the authorites will do the needful.

Southern Railway — Issuing tickets to the moving trains

Today (13/6/2009) i was standing on the queue for getting a ticket from Karur Junction to Tiruchirappalli Fort station. The actual departure timing of the Mangalore-Egmore Express 8.20 PM. But the growd was there. Only one person was issuing the tickets. When I got the ticket at 8.28 PM the train was moving. The nearest unreserved coach is only after 8 compartments. Before I moved 10 steps the train was moving very fast.

Why couldn't they stop the train till all the passengers boarded the train?

Why didn't they stop issuing tickets at least 2 or 3 minutes before the departuer of the Train?

When I asked the Station Master for the complaint book he directed me to enquire the Ticket clerks for their clarification ' as if he was a gentleman'

When I approached the clerks I was abused by them. They turned a blind eye and gave blunt reasons.

One Idea was that I should have taken risk and boarded the running train

Then the Gentleman Station Master did not give me the complaint book

Where to go?

HI

thanking you

Yes, to travel during diwali time from bglr to madurai with 2 MINS, all the seats got booked for the travel date oct 15. And not only during festive time this happens. During saturday-sunday weekend will be closed very quickly.

As there are many people working bangalore from madurai/surrond areas its very much needed to introduce another train on daily basis.

It would be greatful if any special trains announced for diwali
I agree 100% to this. There should be more trains between Bangalore to Madurai. Even buses that ply between Bangalore to Madurai is very limited in comparison with other cities like Chennai and Coimbatore. But who listens to lesser mortals.
Please arrange one more special train from Chennai to Coimbatore.. this could help people who have not got any tickets until now... Hope authorities would do the needful...

Thanks!

Southern Railway — AC in II AC not working from starting station

My PNR No.[protected]. Train No.0660. Journey Date:11.10.2009. Birth No.for self and wife A1/43 and 44. We boarded the train from Tiruchendur for Chennai. We noticed AC was not working from Tiruchendur and informed the coach AC Attendant on duty.We are told it will be rectified in Tirunelveli. But no rectification done. Coach Attendant telephoned to his higher authorities to take action to solve the AC failure problem either at Madurai. We are informed accordingly. At Madurai some AC Mechanics were attending the coach. In the course of time 45 minutes elapsed so the Madurai Station Manager, Mr. Jaganathan, was in a hurry to despatch the train as some trains were held up in the outter. AC failure still continued. All the passengers got suffocation and most of them moving around and standing near door to get some air atleast. We are one among them. Madurai Station Manager told the AC failure will be rectified in the next station. At 7.15 P.M. we reached Dindigul. Dindigul Station Manager told that he has received message but no mechanics available and so the AC failure will be attended at Erode. Now the train started from Dindigul going towards Erode. We do not know what will happen at Erode Station also. TTE informed us that the problem will be sold at Erode. TTE is also helpless. AC couch attendant also helpless. Who is responsible for such lapses. AC failure from the starting station itself. Paying huge amount with lot of inconvenience. Now due to heat all passengers are roaming here and there with suffocation. I am lodging the complaint while travelling from Dindigul to Erode portion. Minimum action to be taken against the operating staff who is careless in operating AC failed coach. Expecting reply.
I was expecting a special train in this route and now am highly disappointed. The crowd that travels in this route is very high and only one train is available.
Hope the railway authorities do necessary action.
