SR will see how passengers react to this special train on Tuesday.

Last week, four special services of Vande Bharat trains were run between Chennai, Egmore and Tirunelveli to clear the Diwali rush.
“No other railway zone in the country has so far run special services of Vande Bharat trains. Our Chennai-Tirunelveli special trains had very high patronage and we wanted to check the reaction of the passengers for a sitting train during the night,” a senior Southern Railway told Deccan Herald.
SR already runs two one Vande Bharat, two Shatabdi Express, one double-decker, and two express trains between Chennai and Bengaluru during the day. The Vande Bharat express and Shatabdi trains between Chennai and Mysuru is mostly used by those who travel to Bengaluru for business.
