People tend to check in during these times:
One of the most iconic landmarks in Chennai (Madras). Photography is slightly restricted, but it certainly is a beautiful building to photograph
Platform 2A sounds crazy, and it os between platforms 2 and 3. Walk between 2 and 3 forward to reach 2A.
Food @ saravana Bhavan here is good
don't haggle with auto or taxi drivers. the best option is to get a pre-paid auto or pre-paid cab outside the station.
Try the food at sarvana bhawan - pretty awesome
Pls buy any snacks or water bottle at entrance itself if you buy near your platform it will be double the price
Saravana Bhavan coffee will ease your tired travel :)
Saravana Bhavan coffee, pongal, dosa, sambar etc etc are yummy!
The fastest way of transport to parts of chennai is 3 metro stations near by.. chennai central suburb RS, park town RS and park RS.
My ticket to home :)
Advertisements on the information board will kill your patience...
Try to park the vehicle at the Rs. 25 parking lot.
Instead of prepaid auto's kindly take a cab, like Fast Track Call Taxi, call no.9551279470. you will have peace of mind.
Dont have to worry about food if u left home/office in a hurry. You have a wide variety to choose from for food. Saravana Bhavan, french loaf, thalapakatti Biriyani, madras cafe etc... just be on time
Skip the pre paid taxis and autos. Take the taxis which are dropping people off in front of the station. 50% cheaper.
If u plan to take a cab, recommend u to book it early than taking it from cab counter as it gets crowded...
Scheduled to depart at 7.25am but so sad leaves at 7.30.
Still the same vintage n heritage station! High time it's modernised like the Kings cross- St Pancras station in London!! Passengers deserve much more....
Food at newly opened Ratna Cafe is good for parcel!!
Parking is a thorough mess. If somebody is coming to see you off, better alight at the front of the station to save time. Let the person park and find his way to the platform later.
Crowdy place with people everwhere.. Take extra care of your belongings.
The staff here are very rude and Ill tempered !! Losers
Take the bus to go to the city and avoid autos if you can. If you have luggage take a pre paid taxi at the side exit going to the reservations building.
arrived early?! chill out in the paid A/C waiting room located behind the cloak rooms. enjoy :))
You pay extra for more comfort and they make you walk the entire platform to reach your coach. Makes perfect sense.
The LED board has only 4 digits for train number and the new train numbers have 5. So check carefully
All the tips are very true and valuable. Juat one more - choose the premium parking. Oys nearer neater and easier to find a spot. 25 rs to park
Always take pre paid auto or taxi. Safe & reasonably priced.
If you have ten minutes to spare, the Saravana Bhavan does fresh idlis quickgunmurugan style
Don't trust the ATMs here during weekends.. U will never be able to get some cash out quickly :)
you can take away a nice cup of filter coffee from saravana bhawan b4 u board a train
Always take Pre Paid auto / taxi service. Won't get cheated.
this is chainnai railway station
What can the railways do about eradicating the smell of dry fish and urine in the station ??? Wack ... Be warned... Get a mask..
Suburban railway ststion, treins are till Gummudipoondi, Sullurpettei, Nellore, Thiruvallur, Arakonam
Always take prepaid auto from Central
Higginbothams book store. Must visit.
Heavy traffic at side entrance
The most crowded & buziest railway station in South India.
No Coco cola in sub urban station. All shops selling Pepsi 😢:-(
No Coco cola in sub urban station 😢:-(
Platform is smelly,use your hanky if it smells better than the platform...!
Platform 2A, inspiration behind platform 7 3/4 in Harry Potter series?
Car parking is pain
Reach well before time as it is a very very busy junction
Bad maintenance everywhere. This place will be like shit during rainy days.
