Travel to Tirupati

Traveled from Coimbatore to Tirupati by Kovai-Tirupati express on 17th March'2015.Dilapidated coach & ramshackle seats notwithstanding the journey was comfortable.The air conditioning was quite effective and charging sockets were available to the delight of Smartphone users.We had carried packed food - sandwiches for breakfast and lemon/curd rice for lunch - yummy.Dep:6.00 am/Arr:1.40 pm.Do not know why coaches condemned from premium trains are relegated to subsidiary routes like this one.Chittoor station looked neat and sparkling though.These pictures were clicked at Chittoor station:

  8. Nice to see clean stations. But most coaches are old and dirty. They don't allow increase in fares, then how can improvement happen.
