Lalbagh Express

In case you are planning to take the Lalbagh express from chennai to bangalore, think again.

Recently the railways department announced additional stoppages for this train. The train now halts at Walaja, KR Puram and some more stations. Add to it the waiting for crossings. Due to this the travelling time has increased but the timetable hasnt been changed.

For the past one month the train is running 45 mins to 1 hour late. Every single day! The train starts at chennai by 03.45 PM and reaches bangalore by 10.10 to 10.20 PM every day.

You end up paying superfast fare for a normal train. And the coaches arent well maintained like the brindavan express or bangalore mail(Other superfast trains in this sector).

    Hi there ! I am also basically from Chennai, but right now settled in Bangalore. Considering the frequent trips that I make to Chennai, this piece of information is very useful to me. I enjoyed reading the other posts too much ever I keep complaining about the weather and auto fellows in Chennai, it is a very dear place to me having lived there for nearly 20 years !
