Had been to SBC this morning, was really surprised to see 16235 with WDP 4d, couldn't note down shed and road number since I was in a hurry, but was sure that it was 16235. A huge offline, coz I've never seen an emd on sbc-sa line, even 11013/14 which get emd between SBC and ltt gets alco in sbc sa line, so was really surprised. EMD through ghats around Dharmapuri will be quite a sight, with multiple curves..

Even, 16231 - Mayiladuthurai - Mysore Express was with GOC WDP4 B / D (not sure but yellow stripe was there) today..... Regular link of Twin Alco's were missing... Had been to drop my cousin to BNC and this train arrived BNC around 5:45 AM...

That makes it even more curious, as I said, EMDs on this route are quite rare, after losing twin alcos with the king 12627, now this is worrying if 16235/31 lose out on twin alcos.

Yes even 11013 is now getting GOC WDP4D #40100 betweenSBC-CBE-SBC. Noticed on 12/4/17.
Even 12677/78 is getting an EMD. So another twin alco link lost permanently!
Admins please update the loco link!

12650 KSK is one train which would give you immense thrill by high speed rides in the beginning and gradually the speed as well as the thrill dies away, enjoy NZM-JHS, while DMM-YPR would surely be a pain to endure at the end of such a long journey.(4.15hrs for 175 kms is almost par with many passenger trains) but the busy SWR stretch between DMM and YPR slows down this superfast very badly, rarely arrives on time at YPR, minimum 15-30 minuts delay, and could get worse.

The speed will increase once the electrification and doubling work b/w YPR-PKD and GTL-DMM completes

Please make sure that the tip you put up is useful, the one posted by you is really plain and misleading, coz there is no reason mentioned, presuming that you are referring to the huge unreserved crowd occupying reserved seats, this should not be a problem if someone is travelling in an AC coach, so that calls upon for better details from your side when you post a tip.

this largely unpopular train is the fastest rail connectivity between delhi and bangalore, and often berths will be available even tiil the last moment, maintains excellent speed for most part of the journey except the tough gradients of SWR between DMM and YPR, but still manages to beat the rajdhani by one hour in terms of speed.(with similar halts, but of technical nature)

Hi all, although the indian railways classify the coaches as "CC" (which would usually mean "AC chair car"), all the coaches in this train are non ac, in fact almost all around the year an AC wouldn't be necessary, so be prepared to travel in a non AC coach even after shelling out the price of an AC chair car, almost feel looted by Indian railways.
