We still don't know what happened there. Everything else; the ticket, the train name, the info on the platform etc ...
I have posted this much later so that I could add a couple of photos.
After Kochi we headed for a night on the backwaters of Kerala. Very dodgy to say the least, we were glad to get out of there.
Then we jumped a train and watched the Indian worlkd go by in comfort as we rolled south to the beaches. Arriving at Varkala was bliss. Catering to western tourists tastes in both bars and restaurants we spent all day at the ...
