Buses from Rameshwaram Area

A Veera Built UD of Bangalore-Rameshwaram route just entering the Mighty pamban bridge.

See a person standing in the steps and taking the pic of the MDU-RMM Passenger which is entering the Pamban. I was there in the train. 🙂

Pamban Road bridge. People used to wait at the center to see the train running through the main bridge. Earlier Rameshwaram didnt had a Road bridge. Only Rail bridge was there.

An unknown Private bus in Pamban

Madurai-Rameshwaram bus @ Pamban. People in this bus are really lucky to see a train in the Rail Bridge

Paramakudi-Trichy bus on Pamban. Could be a Special trip to Rameshwaram.

Thondi-Ramnad-Nagore bus on a spl trip to Rameshwaram.. Now running on the Pamban.

A KKDI region bus waiting @ Rameshwaram RS. This bus departs to Temple from RS. Once MDU-RMM train reaches the RMM RS, we have to get down quickly to catch this bus. It will depart in 5-10 min once the MDU-RMM passenger train reaches the BS. Used the same trip thrice till date.. 🙂

TN63 N 1054 of R.No 1 running in Temple-Rameshwaram BS route.

TN63 N 0803 of R.No 2 running in the Pamban-Temple-Dhanuskodi-Verkodu route. This bus actually halts at MugundharayarChatram and not Dhanuskodi.

TN 63 N 0921 running in R.No 3 Temple-Dhanuskodi(Mugunthraya Chatram) route.

TN01 N 3943.. An old MTC running in R.No 1. Could be well maintained ones from MTC. I have seen these old MTC buses in Rameshwaram, Ramnathapuram, Paramakudi, Tanjore(Big numbers), Kumbakonam, Sivagangai etc.,

An old MTC bus transferred to Rameshwaram depot. Saw around 4-5 buses of MTC here.

Just see the number of headlights.. Front grill might be the inspiration from the so called “Jalladai’s”

TN63 N 1048.. Just waiting at BS to pick up people for Temple.

An SETC UD of Kanyakumari depot running in Kanyakumari-Rameshwaram route. Was upgraded to UD recently.

Salem-Rameshwaram bus of SETC’s Salem depot.

he driver helped me to take a pic of the train. He drove the bus nicely. First time a rocking driver from RMTC. He completed MDU-RMM journey in 3.5 hrs. Stoppages @ Ramnad, Paramakudi, Manamadurai. Missed to click this. 😦

Could an Old SD converted to City bus.. Spotted this in Ramnad BS.
