You actually can. Say you have a onward/break journey ticket and either of your intermediate train/s gets delayed. You can always approach SM for permission to travel by the next possible train.

Break of Journey is when you take the next reserved train after a duration of more than 24 hours.

For trains having no Unreserved bogies, this would not be possible.
You cannot purchase a Mail/Express Unreserved Ticket and travel by the General Class of a Superfast Train.

Now this is three mistakes, if we take your objections at face value.
When we look at the situation on mert, there was none.

Oh my. The OP did not say they had a break of journey ticket. The question was a general question.

I understood the question to be "Can you drop one train and get on another to finish your journey." The answer is an emphatic NO, in
Unless the station master gives you something in writing, his verbal permission does not count for much with the TTE, who might not know what the SM has allowed. Your ticket would have to be modified by the Station Master allowing you to travel by an alternate train, meaning that the trains name would have to be specified on the ticket---which is what I suggested. Without that modificatio0n you are travelling without ticket.
Break of journey is governed by its own set of rules. The NDLS-Chennai, BLR-Mysore ticket I mentioned had an overnight break of journey built in to it. .

I don;t care how long the break has to be for it be an official "break of journey"
There maybe a difference between "break of journey" as used by IR and break of journey- a voluntary interruption. Whether you call it official "break of journey" or not, it makes little difference to the argument. In any case, if it's not a "break of journey", it's ticket less travel, which I do not recommend.

I never did suggest going on a faster train than you were ticketed for.
It seems you misunderstand quite a bit.

Please stop ARGUING. None of your statements carry any sense. On one hand you started speaking about through tickets/break of journey and when confronted you simply deny of putting any said terms besides nullifying the entire issue. When you speak about Railways you need to be technical. Speaking in haywire terms is not going to help anyone. This is not any friendly chit-chat. For a common railway traveler he may or may not have the idea regarding the difference between Mail/Express and Superfast Train or even difference between boarding one of them in lieu of the other.

There's simply no point in replying to you any further. Moderators, please be careful with the suggestions and advices given here as most of them are incorrect under real time basis.

Never mind. No point arguing with you. I agree witht he wraning given in the post above. Have a good day.
A ticket is a contract between the passenger and Indian Railways, which allows the passenger to travel on certain train(s). The passenger may not arbitrarily jump from one train to another just because it does not stop where they want to get off. It's a simple concept that eludes some people.

The simple answer is No, you can not travel in Bangalore express as you have a reserved ticket in Chennai Exp.

As you have mention clearly that I have booked in Chennai Exp, It means You have a reserved ticket .


Once you do a reservation for a particular train then you have to travel by that train only and you cannot board or travel in another train.

The rule is quite simple really. You may travel in a reserved coach of any train you fancy as long as you have a confirmed or an RAC ticket for that train for the day of your travel. Since you have got neither RAC, nor confirmed ticket for Bangalore Express, the answer is you cannot. The fact that Bangalore Express suits you better is of no consequence.
Think about it. If you go to a restaurant and order idli, that's what you can expect the waiter to bring, unless there is a mixup of course. If, after you place the order, you decide you want a dosa instead,your waiter doesn't know that. He will still bring you idli, barring any mixups, of course. If you want dosa, you must order dosa. The same way, if you want to travel by Bangalore Express, you must let the Indian Railways know that you want to travel by Bangalore Express on a certain date. The process for that is called reservation. It cannot be bypassed. Once IR assigns you a confirmed or RAC ticket, only then have you established your right to t ravel by that train.

There is no basis for your doubts. IR has established rules for travelling on its trains. All travel is governed by those rules, not simply by your preferences. Rules, not what one wants. This is what majority of Indians forget. That's why I keep saying that Indians don't live by rules. What they want or what they need trumps the rules.

To enter a suburban railway station you either need to have a local train ticket or a platform ticket.
