    Choose the subway/stairs on the other side of the platform opp. side from the foot overbridge. It has a lift/elevator for luggage and less crowded.

    Lot of mixed crowd. Always carry exact money for platform or travel ticket. Take the pre-paid auto only. And also be cautious near the underpass near the main gate.

    There is an old coolie with a wodden plank who hits innocent dogs near the parking lot. If you find him, belt him with that same log until he cries as loud as those innocent dogs.

    There are 3 unreserved compartments at the end and one in the front... Come 20 to 25 mins early to catch a seat.. Anytime sooner would not help as the train arrives 20 mins before departure...

    Chennai mail at platform 1 main entrance. If ur trains are late and want a place to stand the platform ends are best. But keep a look at the screens for ur trains.

    Remember to carry change if you are going to buy a platform ticket. Better to take it from the machine rather than waiting in the ticket queue.

    2013年11月時点で、駅前が工事中なのもあり、バススタンドの陸橋?を越えて駅に行こうとすると、矢印通りに進めません。駅前の道路が柵で分離されているので、左か右にかなり迂回して渡らねばなりません。インドの人も迷うややこしさ…。暗くなってから駅に来る旅行者は要注意です。駅構内2階に有料レストルーム各種あります。女性専用レストルームはないようです。利用料には"NO CHANGE"です。
