This is wrong. Again increased senior citizen/ ladies quota in all trains by 50% . This means now at time of booking more bleak chances of LB/ SLB.
No. Of bertgs in sl coach - 72
Total LB/SLB - 27 and after subtracting quotas left berths are only 6 to 7.
Today people are becoming health conscious and even at age of 60
many are very fit and thry can climb UB easily.
Only aspect of Rly bdgt which i find not good.

Ye jo aapne 6-7 seat chhodi hai na wo bhi bhool jaiye bcoz IR ne SS quota 120 kar diya hai aur alag se 33% ladies quota bhi hai. Jahir hai usme bhi LB hi hoga. To ab to window seat milne ka ek hi option hai - aisa waiting ticket book karo ki wo CNF na ho lekin RAC jarur ho jaaye.

Ab to shayad yahi karna hoga nahi to train travel karne ka koi faayda nahi. Short distance ( 500 kms - 800 kms) ke liye bike start karo aur nikal pado aur long distance ke liye budget airlines ka upaay rahega aur kya?

Ladies quota sirf sleeper mai hota hai and woh zaruri nai hai ki lb ho, kyuki last time maine kab ladies quota mai book kiya tha apne mom ke liye toh woh Middle birth aaya tha.

HTE ERS via Katpadi already announced by RM. Maybe it will start by January or February.
Last months newspaper stated that (If I remember correctly) Train will depart from Hatia on Mondays and from Ernakulam on Thursdays ( may be its opposite HTE dep on Thursday and ERS dep on Monday, Sorry, I am not able to remember correctly).
Timings :
Hatia will depart ERS in morning and reach hatia t 0345hrs (Arrival timing I remember)
Hatia Ernakulam will depart hatia at 1815hrs and reach Ernakulam in evening.
Journey Time almost 48hrs.
Any other member may throw some more light.
