I shall be staying in Coimbatorie in late October and have booked onto the Otty train from Mettupalayam. To get to this station I am also booked the 1267 Niligiri (Blue Mountain ) SF Express at dep. Coimbatorie at 0515hrs. No problems with part of the journey.

However when I return from Ooty to Mettupalayam in the early evening I am unable to find a train that will take me back to Coimbatorie as it appears that corresponding train from the morning has been withdrawn and isn't scheduled to start again until January 2019.

How would you suggest that I get back to Coimbatorie.

Frequent buses from Mettupalaym station to Gandhipuram Central bus stand. Then an autorickshaw to the station. Or take a bus to Ukkadam bus stand and then an autorickshaw to the station.

The train is not withdrawn; it is running, but does not permit bookings from Mettupalyam to Coimbatore. Book a ticket from Mettupalyam upto Tiruppur (the train's next halt) and get off at Coimbatore - there are no issues getting off a train prior to your booked station.

However, keep in mind there is a 2 hour gap between the arrival of the hill train from Ooty at Mettupalyam and the departure of the train 12672 from Mettupalyam to Coimbatore (and eventually Chennai). It might be faster to get a bus.
