Travelled in this train from SBC to MAS on 07-05-2016 in seat no. 69 of C4 coach. Since near the door literally no AC. The AC plant was giving out huge noise. The adjacent food tray dirt was not cleaned. I had to literally talk harshly to the lady over phone No. 138 for this. Within 10 minutes, one supervisor along with another person organised for cleaning. The AC was not at all set right. The TTE was helpful in arranging alternative seats. I moved to seat No. 50 in the lower deck after BWT. At Ambur, I had to move to some other seat. Till we reached PER, I had sweat a lot. The mobile plug points were not working.
on Twitter, COMS. After 2 days, COMS replied that the AC has been rectified. But the twitter evoked no response inspite of the posting from DRM - MAS divn's declaration that "we respond faster on Twitter".

I think the major issue is pune junction. Being a big city it has only 6 platforms out of which only platform 1 is capable of handling 23/24 coach trains. Rest are not that long. And many a times due to platform unavailability trains have to halt for long time at outer. This is also perhaps one reason for South bound trains getting diesel-powered locos from Mumbai itself in order to avoid Loco change time at pune junction. Perhaps some senior members can correct me if i am wrong and throw more light on it.

I travelled in this train 2 years back from NDLS to ALD. Got confirmed berths in S1 through tatkal. Found that these berths were occupied by some others. On a query, got SMS that my berths have been upgraded to BE coach. Did not have much time to venture out to PF for change. as it was time for departure. Had to go through all the vestibules through 6 to 7 coaches to reach my coach.
There after it was very good sleep to be woken by the sounds to see a before time arrival at ALD.

A very punctual train- the best way to travel is hit the berth as soon as you board the train- TTE will wake you up and ask for the tickets just show and get back to sleep- Every minute you lose in your sleep is precious because this train is so over punctual that he never lets you sleep the complete journey- sometimes reaches by 4:15
Make sure you board at the 1st station and de-board at the last- getting down at any suburb station is not worth losing sleep
Worst arrival time
experienced in suburb: Perambur at 03:40AM

I also hit the berth immediately on boarding - before the train starts at around 22-10 itself; but be watchful for your luggage. Sleep hard when the train starts. There might be some disturbance at BNC for addl boarding, if any berths are vacant in you bay. Better to set alarm for getting down at PER at around 03-50.
This train normally trails Kerala exp from JTJ upto KPD. Sometimes, this mail is detained till in JTJ till Kerala exp departure.

During my only travel last year, I had booked tatkal from NDLS to ALD in S1. When I was boarding, pleasent shock, my berth was upgraded to 3AC. Inspite of the difficulty in shifting the luggages after the train started, it was a wonderful journey reaching ALD very much on time.
