Perambur Railway Station with view of Perambur Fly over

Perambur is served by three railway stations. They are Perambur, Perambur Carriage Works and Perambur Loco Works. It is also one of the earliest British settlements in Chennai, mainly because of the railway establishments during the 1850s. Perambur is also noted for the largest presence of Anglo-Indians in Chennai and arguably in South India because of the erstwhile aplenty British settlements in and around Perambur, during the construction and running of the Integral Coach Factory or ICF as known colloquially. Perambur also houses a large number of Malayalis who also work for the Railways. St.Joseph's Syro-Malabar church is one of the catholic churches in Perambur which serves the Malayalee Catholics of North-Chennai.

Perambur incidentally is one of the major railway hubs in Chennai not only because of ICF, but also due to a number of express/super-fast trains having stops. Perambur is the fifth largest station in Chennai in terms of passenger volume after Chennai Central, Chennai Egmore, Tambaram and Mambalam.
