I'm shifting from Bombay to Hyderabad, traveling with my wife & 3yr old kid (so 2 tkts). I have few queries related to the household stuff (3 or 4 standard-sized cartons totaling about 80-100kgs) that I will be carrying along with me.
Journey will be either by:
1) 4thNov, 02702:LTT-SC, 1stAC, confirmed but seat/cabin not alloted yet OR
2) 2ndNov, 12701- HusainSagar Exp, 3rdAC,
...

WL46/47. If it doesn't move up, I might tatkal it.
Both tickets booked online. Planning to board at Panvel but willing to change to starting terminus CST or LTT if it's easier based on answers to Qns.
a) What are the luggage allowances for different classes that can be carried along with passenger in berth/cabin?
b) 02702 has a full 1AC coach, can I get an exclusive couple cabin? I read that the cabins for 1AC are allotted few hours prior to departure (along with chart preparation?) based on the other passengers booked. Is it true?
c) If I get an exclusive cabin will I still have to book luggage?
d) If I don't get an exclusive cabin (so which means sharing cabin with 2 other ppl) - in that case how much is allowed in cabin without inconveniencing co-travelers with me.
e) Do both the above trains have brake vans where luggage can be carried? What is the acronymn for luggage coach if I want to look it up in train details rake/coach composition?
f) Other than brake vans is there any separate luggage coach? (Or to put it other way, a meta Qn: why is it called brake van if it's used only for carrying luggage?)
sorry too many Qns, as this is the first time I'm traveling with substantital luggage which might be required to be paid. And since I'm travelng with wife & a kid departing night, I don't want any last min surprises or hiccups.
Ideally I'd prefer to get exclusive 1AC cabin & travel with all cartons inside my cabin (I think they should easily fit in) - but I have no idea what are the rules or free allowances in 1AC cabin.
Bonus Qn:
g) Are there any sumo/tavera type transport services available at Begumpet or SC stations that I can arrange from here in Bombay to drop us with luggage in the city? Last trip I went to main Nampally stn, I could see only rickshaws.
Thanks for any help.
ps moderators: Are there any sticky posts or must-read threads for newbies on this forum so that I can familiarise myself with all the jargon? And eventually contribute back to the forum.

--> 4thNov, 02702:LTT-SC, 1stAC, confirmed but seat/cabin not alloted yet OR
There are chances that you might get 2 seat coupe Even if you get a 4 seated cabin, you can take luggage easily.
--> Regarding 02702, the same situation will repeat as the berth allotment is done after charting. I believe you can even submit a request asking the concerned to allot a 2 seat coupe.

All mentioned trains have brake/luggage vans and you can pre book them. You have to somehow manage that the luggage comes in the same way you travel.
--> if you get a cabin, you dont need to book for luggage.
-->Sumos and Taveras are not avbl outside any station of hyd cities.
Kindly book an Innova from any of the registered cab walas. I guess even Mahindra Logan or Etios can suck the luggage as you mentioned they are cartons only.
Anything I left answering you?

Thanks for your reply man.
Sorry, I was unable to get back onto internet after posting the query. Getting a chance only now.
I've also submitted a request letter to TTE/chart preparn office and they've assured me unless there's some VIP movement, I'm mostly assured a couple cabin.
In the worst situation it doesn't:

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries.

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far.
