Summer vacation is at its peak now. People wanting to travel far and near often complain about non-availability of seats/berths in popular trains on Chennai and Bangalore routes.
However, railway officials say the passengers are not looking beyond their favourite trains in which a good number of seats or berths are available on most of the days.
Duronto Express
“While almost all classes of reserved accommodation are wait-listed (in general quota) in Chennai-bound superfast express trains such as Pandiyan, Nellai and Pothigai expresses (all originating within Madurai railway division) for the next few days, people are not aware that Duronto Express (Tuesdays and Thursdays) runs with at least 50 vacant berths from here,” Divisional Commercial Manager N. Mahesh said.
