Train is having an awkward running timing between Punalur till Trivandrum.The train departs at around 15:50 from Punalur and is terribly slow till it reaches Quilon.It is holded at outer tracks on approach at Quilon.It is further holded at Quilon to pass other express trains like Parashuram express,Netravati Express which plies at the same direction on same time frame.
Nearly 30Minutes up to an hour is on hold at Quilon Jn for the purpose.Nightmare journey.

Try to avoid this train during season time towards Shalimar.Its a horrible train to travel during festive time in W.Bengal as the sleeper coach will be flooded with RAC ticket holders occupying seats of reserved passengers.Traveled to Bhubaneswar during Saraswati puja time in Bengal.Almost all Sleeper coaches in the entire train was packed with RAC ticket holders and their heavy luggage.In addition to sharing reserved seats & berths there were passengers sleeping and sitting in the floor blocking the doors and toilet.The recycled air in the coaches of the crowded train was suffocating.Never ever travel with family in the sleeper class of this train due security and comfort reasons.

Worst seats. You will find mice here and there so be careful while sleeping. Very unclean coaches as too old rakes. Railways should pay attention towards this train as passengers are not travelling for free.

Most of the trains running to Kerala runs with old rusty coaches which are close to retirement.Most of these coaches were once used by other state rail divisions like Tamilnadu,Andhra which lobbies for new coaches.While traveling on Swarna Jayanti express,12643 a local passenger train running in Andhra Pradesh was seen with new clean coaches.This is the general condition of trains running from Kerala.

Try to avoid travelling in this train with unreserved general 2nd class seating tickets especially during Sundays and holidays.The coaches are overcrowded and once it reaches KSR SBC waiting passengers on either side of the platform will rush into the train without letting the passengers to alight.Its total chaos and nobody is present to control the rush.Not at all safe for elderly people and children as the passengers rushing in for seats don't bother who is in line to alight.

Excellent speed and punctual due to less stops and less crowded route.Select this train to avoid uncomfortable night time red eye journeys in sleeper coaches.

Train runs with very old coaches.Mobile charging points in sleeper class are available only near doors and mostly occupied except night.Rust and dust was seen at seat joints and the general condition of S11 sleeper coach proved that the coach is near to retirement.Expect general delay at destination as train reaches on rush hour at Nizamuddin.Train was holded at Okhla station for nearly 1 hour on 25th Sep.Train reached before time but was moving very slowly from Faridabad onwards and holded inbetween at multiple points.Unbelievable that IR couldn't give priority to passengers who were coming after 2 night long journey.
Train is an excellent super fast train and best choice in this route.It is much faster than Kerala express,less stops also.It covered
most of the stations before time.Good food from pantry car.

Try to avoid traveling on unreserved coaches of this train.The coaches are very old and jam packed.Passengers sleep at floor blocking the path and doors.Its always overcrowded though a night running t rain.Based on travel experience from calicut to ernakulam Jn on 11Sep.
