BedRolls on payment only @25/-
No on board pantry carry food if possible.
Not very empty train and no untoward incident reported. Fairly safe.
OK punctuality as train is Special.

regarding food , i suggest you to get food from vskp/ bza/ gnt , after that the availability of food is horrible in that route. I faced the issue when i boarded MTM-YPR and could not find food at any place after gnt , had to sleep empty stomach. do pack some stuff for children at guntur or bza , happy journey

    -@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.

    The modification to the TL Update scheme - i.e. the introduction of the new RAC System - has led to some efficiency with TL Updates. More TLs are being discussed, and quickly moved up. However, we still have on Average, about 300 Waitlisted TLs in the backlog at any time, and our hard-working and diligent TLMs...
