This train is running on pretty old rakes and you will feel pretty violent jerks throughout journey from Chennai to Mysore and onward journey as well, irrespective of SL or AC, the jerks are very high intensity. Pregnant ladies and people with other medical challenges - please avoid this train, if possible. I had complained online to Rlwys, they replied that the entire rake is old and needs to be changed. But, they never change it. Toilets stink badly, as this train is hardly cleaned and while approaching Chennai form Mysore, it takes nearly 50 mins to reach Chennai Central from Perambur junction.

Train reached CGL not before 9:30am on daily basis. Atleast 2-3 Express trains pass through same track and this EMU is put in Loop line. TT has to be updated or EMU train has to tstick to scheduled TT. Affects many school, college students and thousands of factory and office workers at MM Nagar and Mahindra City.

There is no trick to it, but there are certain conditions like, there should be vacant berths in upper class and ticket availability should be in Waiting List in lower class and also the passenger should be full fare paying passenger. Though the upgradation happens, it is rare during peak/vacation season and in high demand trains.

Re# 1506728-1            Tags   Past Edits
Sorry to hear, sir. The jerks are due to CBC coupling and the entire rake itself is pretty old. Southern Railways should remove CBC coupling or replace the coaches and couplers atleast. This train shares rake with MYS-YPR Malgudi exp, hence 16022's toilets will be unclean on most days due to limited time for maintenance at Mysore. Please lodge a complaint on pg portal. pgportal.gov.in

Atleast the toilet could be well-maintained.. it is almost impossible to get sleep if the berth are near entrance/exit doors... and the coupling is really very bad.. entire rake looks like 90's train... why no upgrade to this route?
