Let the new timings for this prestigious train remainThe Chennai to Mettupalayam exp is one of the excellent trains on this important route. However, the arrival timings in the reverse direction used to be very inconvenient for Chennai bound passengers. The train would reach Chennai at exactly 4am. However, the city buses would start plying at 5am and this would be a hell of a problem.
Today, this train is running on revised timings. It leaves Coimbatore at 10 25 and arrives at Chennai only at around 6pm. One really does not know if the new timings will be applicable after the virus scare is gone. Here is one request to the Railway authorities. Please do make the new timings a regular feature and allow thousands of Chennai bound passengers reach Chennai only at 6am. After all, this train reached Chennai earlier than the other prestigious train called the Cheran Express.
