A personal review on Doronto Express Chennai to Coimbatore
This month i went to Chennai for a very important purpose(applying for my visa). After Long trouble i some how managed to submit it to the embassy yesterday. I went to Chennai along with my father and we stayed in Annanagar with my cousin. To my surprise i was on the right time to celebrate my cousin's birthday. Ok that was bit long story lets come to the point. Actually we planned to come back on thursday through west coast but at last min our tickets got cancelled. So without a choice we booked Doronto Express for friday morning 7.15 am which is a non- stop train from chennai to coimbatore (They stop in Erode for 5 min to take the afternoon lunch). The cost of this trip was bit higher as we booked in Thakkal Scheme. The total cost for two adults was 1710 INR which was bit higher.The coach was complete AC, and Its a semi- sleeper chair car.
Since, It was bit early time to catch we decided to start of from anna nagar at 6.15 am. we got a cab and we reached central around 6.40 am. we found our platform and we went there and got settled in the train our coach number was C2 and seat number 42& 43. Since it was two different seats we asked for swap of seats and luckily we got it . so we sat in 40&41. The train seats were good but the hand rest for my dad was bit broken. The coach had seating arrangements of 3: 2. The ticket can be ordered online at this link https://www.irctc.co.in/.
