Must have brought the bi weekly NZM - KCVL A/c Special train. With Sabarimala season nearing its peak, you have good variety of locos bringing in special trains, especially from SCR.

Why can't railways provide the same stops for 16316 like that of 16322?Asking bcoz both trains take the same time to reach SBC. Is there any reason behind fewer stops for 16316?
Thanks in Advance

Yesterday myself & mum travelled in the 2S coach of 12677(SBC-ERS intercity) from PGT to ERS by 12677 with an UR ticket.The TTE walked thru our coach 3-4 times,but didn't ask us to show the ticket!!
Before purchasing ticket,I asked at the enquiry counter at PGT and they said that I have to approach the TTE with the UR ticket and pay Rs.15 extra
let me know whether it is permitted to travel in 2S coach with UR ticket
Thanks in Advance

Yes, with so many people getting up and down, the TTE finds it hard to find out who got up every station. He cant ask for ticket to every person after every station, so he tries to recognize them by walking up and down.

In Kerala, Unreserved sleeper tickets are issued across UTS counters and the fare will be slightly higher than the general ticket. With that you can travel in sleeper class coaches.

You need to check if distance restriction is there for Kerala express. If its there you are not supposed to board that even though it stops at station of your interest.
