nothing much to see in nagpur ..it is a good city for living ..one of few cities having reserve forest area in center of city ..tranportation is very bad ..high auto rates , not many buses to many places in city( most people prefer own vehicles ) ...many good restaurants and gardens in city ..its just chilled out lazy city :).
many national forest reserves near nagpur like pench tiger reserve etc

Transportation is goid un nagpur.
Frequent city buses ply ti many parts.
But sometimes route diversions results in scarcity.
Nagpur is very active city not at.all lazy

another negative point of this train :
localites especially in kerala use it as a local/shortdistance train and stand inside ac coaches/block toilet passages without tickets ( even in precence of 2 tti )
i rarely see this happening anywere in india

If you have reserved sleeper tickets then brace yourself to have co-passengers right from trivandrum till kannur. The most surprising part is all stations issue sleeper tickets for this train for local passengers whereas there is no specific bogie for the same. Hence its not unusual to find sleeper coaches packed to capacity till kannur
