the train maintenance needs an immediate attention from the concerned authorities
the berths are to be cleaned every time before the train departs from the originating station
the toilets are not clean in the compartment (i traveled in S7)
and some shabby scribbling and drawings were seen inside it ,. which is to be removed and cleaned immediately
the punctuality ., the train has a slight delay in its arrival and departure

Sir as we do hav scarcity of staffs but abundant water & hence request hygienic passenger like to u honor wipe clean berth after the train arrives from Washing Line..the scheme also let u part with Clean India Project!!
Toilets are cleaned @ washline but get scribbled the same way as on wall, during travel!!
Right now we are bzy in washing Bedrolls daily along with station washable aprons & train berth & wall graffiti isnt part of clean India Project, as of now..kindly either bear or part-in as freelancer!!

With RSA in place, this train have now less time for all this things. Island which reached CAPE will start to MS in a short interval, and in this interval, cleaning is not taking place properly at CAPE.
Unwanted RSA..
It will be nice, if you raise complaint through twitter so that, they take up steps in future.

removing the derogatory graffiti can be done by us ., the next time i see any such ., i will try to make an effort removing it
and yes ., i am not aware why RSA for this train 12634 ., but in my opinion ., two separate racks can be maintained for island express as well as kanyakumari-chennai egmore express
