Hi,

In 3 weeks time, I'm planning to travel from Bangalore to Trichy. Does anyone know what the train route is like? Should I be taking the train or bus?

I can't travel overnight as I'm going to a wedding reception in the evening so will want to depart early morning. I'm finding the whole train booking process quite daunting!

I've read a few of the guides and would have preferred AC, except for the thought of not being able to see out of the window. It's a long journey and we'll be travelling in the daytime!

Any advice / tips appreciated!

Thanks.

Train Train Name From Dep. To Arr. Travel time
6231 MYSORE EXPRESS TPJ 20.35 SBC 06.05 09.30

TPJ-trichy
SBC-Bangalore .

There is no train connecting both places during day.you have board the train the night earlier and stay in trichy for day.
even buses for long journey run during night.use irctc.co.in for booking.

Dear doodlebeetle,

I can't travel overnight as I'm going to a wedding reception in the evening so will want to depart early morning.

##Noted.

##You please take 2677 SBC-ERS Intercity Express and get down in Salem. From Salem, there are plenty of buses to Trichy.

##Please look at this:
---
2677 ERNAKULAM EXP 28/02/2009 BANGALORE CY JN MON TUE WED THU FRI SAT SUN

SNo Stn Code Stn Name Route No. Arrival Time Dep. Time Distance Day Remark
1 SBC BANGALORE CY JN 1 Source 06:15 0 1
2 BNC BANGALORE CANT 1 06:25 06:27 0 1
3 HSRA HOSUR 1 07:18 07:20 59 1
4 DPJ DHARMAPURI 1 08:38 08:40 152 1
5 SA SALEM JN 1 10:18 10:20 218 1
.............................. .......

##The distance by train from Salem to Trichy is 62+142=204Kms., whereas by Road, it is around 142Kms., and the buses are PLENTY.
The City Bus Journey from Salem RS to Salem Bus Complex, would cost you Rs.2/- and the auto driver might charge around
Rs.50/-.
