I am travelling to Chennai in a couple of months time. I have booked a ticket from Frankfurt to Chennai in Lufthansa. This means I arrive at close to midnight in Chennai. I googled and discovered that there exists a suburban train system close to Chennai airport which takes me to the two big railway stations in Chennai (Egmor and Centraal). I plan to take a commuter train at 04:00 AM. I will have with me 2 big suitcases (though they will not be more than 5-10kgs each).
I have a few questions:
- How much of a walk is it from Chennai International arrivals area to the nearest suburban railway station?
- How crowded will be the train?
- If I wish to purchase a "First class ticket", how much will it cost? Will there be an open ticket counter at 04 AM? Is there a mobile App where I can purchase before hand?
