All the train running in these routes are all broad gauge, Its really a good experience 2 travell in chennai trains, i like to travell in beach thambaram trains, though there are train for every 10 mins the trains are crowded fully in the peak hours. To avoid the crowd in the peak hours the railways had introduced automated ticket wending machines which uses a prepaid smartcard 2 lend the tickets but i dono why most of them dont use it, The rail way stations are better than before, they are maintained well nowadays, Train travelling in chennai is a great experience, Mainly Travelling in MRTS trains, they are also called as flying trains ( Parkkum Raiyil ) . chennai rocks :)
