1. The train runs overcrowded for the entire journey. Sleeping on the floor next to toilet and between the lower berths is a common sight in sleeper coaches. Be prepared to go to the right exit to board/deboard the train.
2. The Sleeper rakes are full of cockroaches and rodents. Be careful with luggage/ food and kids.

What a sad scene! IR needs to introduce few more express trains between Howrah and Bangalore. Since this train pass thru so many big junctions, question is do most passengers travel end-to-end or is there high rush among intermediate stations for this train?

What I have seen is it has mostly end to end passengers. Intermediate stations have very less quota. Saw similar crowd in MYS-HWH weekly exp too!!

worst part is cause of ECOR it extended prasanthi from VSKP from BBS and there is no single trainf starting from VSKP to SBC if a train is introduced then half problems are solved but ECOR does not care about waltair division it is only concerned about orissa highly biased

VSKP is a big junction. There should be one daily superfast express train from VSKP to Bangalore. Also there should be one daily train from Howrah to Trivandrum, ernakulam.
