Train Travel from Bangalore CY Junction (SBC) to Chennai Central (MAS) by Shatabdi Express - Here I Come

 

Chennai has always been on my bucket list and it was only recently that I actually managed a wholesome trip to this wonderful city, though it is very close to Bangalore. So off I went to take a break from my hectic work and relax. I chose train travel from Bangalore CY Junction (SBC) to Chennai Central (MAS) by Shatabdi Express to take me to the city of Carnatic music.

The experience was marvelous starting from the first lap that is the train journey. The Shatabdi Express is a very comfortable train with all coaches completely air conditioned. The windows are large and glassed. This gives a good view while travelling and I took whole advantage of this fact and clicked some very good snaps of the wilderness and pristine countryside. This has been tailor-made for tourists and is also very comfortable option for business purpose commuting. Most of my co passengers were of these two classes respectively.

The seats were cushioned and comfy. My train was supposed to start at six from the Bangalore City Junction so I packed my bag the previous day and slept off early in order to wake up in time next morning. But due to excitement of the trip I could hardly close my eyes. Next day, things went pretty well and I reached the station on time to board the train.

The train left at sharp six, giving a kickoff start to my journey. There was a group of French tourists and some students sitting in my compartment. For a while I was talking to them sharing random experiences and asking about their life. After sometime the waiter came with breakfast. The hot sambhar and idlis with vada tingled my taste buds and gave me the feel of Chennai before I reached it. As soon as the city started fading and the countryside came into view I took out my camera and went on taking snaps.

There were only a few stops such as Bangalore Cantonment and Katpadi Junction before I reached Chennai Central, my destination. My train travel from Bangalore CY Junction (SBC) to Chennai Central (MAS) by Shatabdi Express was quite memorable. When I got out, I looked at my watch and it was only 11:05. I walked out of the station with my mind making plans for the awesome days I was going to spend here.
