which route should it run then? Why not HWH ERS? It will take time to understand type of travel friends. Too early to decide and stamp!

Considering the massive crowds waiting at various stations in Kerala to board TVC - SHM/GHY Express(and the unpredictable KCVL - GHY Special) trains regularly, it is only a matter of time before 22877/22878 HWH - ERS - HWH gets filled.
Once these people get to know the possibility of travelling by Antyodaya Express till HWH, am sure they will flock to this train. This is just a temporary phase; a mere 'starting trouble'!!

Can I comment..
Too early to decide. HWH ERS is one of the most patronized section with thousands of migrant workers from W. Bengal. Not necessarily it should go to GHY always but is good thought. People are just getting to know about this train. More publicity is needed regarding travel on this train.

In the past I also remember LPI being used as terminal station. I don't recollect reason. Some renovation or so at SC or HYB. Mumbai bound trains were operating from here.

Ya. But Shankarpalli was proposed as another terminal and this is way out of the city outskirts. Could be a political-real estate nexus.

Udupi Station has only some light refreshment stalls on PF 1. PF2 has only a small strip of shelter like a village R.S.
The station is slightly on an elevated level. There is an elevator to reach the car park from just outside PF 1.
A small budget lodge and an eatery is there just behind tourist car park. Udupi city centre is about 4 kms from the station and Udupi-Manipal highway is about half a km away.

auto facility seems to be there, although I am not sure if it functions effectively.
The display of coach position is interesting at the notice board. It does not show position of coaches from engine and direction. Instead it shows a coach will stop at the number where it is displayed. For example in our train 22475, engine was at number 24 on the platform, where it stopped. Our coach was 10th from engine. The display notice mentioned A1 would be where 14 number is on the platform. Bit confusing for non regular passengers.
There are just one or two porters at the station who normally show up only before a train is scheduled to arrive. Unless, we request the station staff to call him over his cell phone.

Re# 2202770-1            Tags   Past Edits
Thanks, I could not forget the best ever breakfast which I had at UD while I was on journey on 56640. The train stopped here for about 20 minutes due to some issue (requiring a foreign passenger to buy ticket who boarded without ticket, the railway police helped her too much. She missed to get down at Karwar from Mangala express as she slept & Mangala was about 12 hours late. She thus got down from Mangala at UD and got into this train).
This gave us chance to relish fresh tasty Neer dosa, crispy samosa, juice etc. If not for this halt due to a foreigner we would not have got chance to have this superb food at UD.

Traveled in 56640 4 days ago and had a similar experience at UD. A small stall on the KAWR end dishes out some of the best Upma, Buns, Goli Bajjis and Lemon rice I have tasted. Needless to say, they were fresh adn hot. The lone TTE of the train suggested the shop and he himself packed all the items for BF.

Wow, looks like railways should give a 5 minute halt at UD to relish tasty food!!! I think we both are talking about same stall :) That day he had Neer dosa with kuruma, samosa etc.

Sir, how is journey?
I am bit confused about this train, since I know we can't book a seat. So if I have to go from ERS to BZA, can I just take a general ticket (of course 15% higher fare) and occupy a berth to travel till BZA? Do I lose seat if I move out as it happen in general coaches. Hope some one will help to understand better :)

No i dont think so.....that you will loose your seat in between as 20-21 coaches are more than enough to handle the rush....you can be rest assured by putting your luggage on seat.This is antyodaya brother not jansadharan....:P

Okay not much slack as I thought. 2 hours from TCR to ERS is not too much. On an average it needs 1 hour 15 minutes from TCR to ERS.
This train is great asset for Kerala!!

Yesterday i saw this train passes my home town puttur. Just 5% passengers are there i mean 2 members for each coach. Full of empty i think this train would stop in main stations enroute. It overtakes 56011 HX AJJ pass and this train following 16058 TPTY MAS SAPTHAGIRI Exp. Both EOG were gone off. Pics were not taken..

Absolutely. HWH ERS has good patronage. It needs for sure some time friends! Kerala also needs new trains. Can't have always in Delhi Patna route. Let us enjoy this diversity in train to Kerala too!

Hi, I liked the idea, but can anyone explain to whom does it cater to? Only those who wish to travel by general compartments or with family? I am bit confused since I know we can't book a seat. So if I have to go from ERS to BZA, can I just take a general ticket (of course 15% higher fare) and occupy a berth to travel till BZA? Do I lose seat if I move out as it happen in general coaches.

bathroom always chalti train me jana faydemand hai saman chori aur seat jane ka dar nahi rehta.

Hi, I see your point but they are acquiring land which do not belong to SCR, right? By law we cannot stop this. I did vote for 'NO'. SC has long way to go as train travel is becoming more and more competitive. We need land for facilities and expansion.

Bapatla is the nearest railway station for visiting Surya Lanka beach. It is just 9 KMS from the station with plenty of autos. They charge about 80-100 rupees. As always please bargain as there is no pre-paid auto booth!
Probably Surya Lanka beach is nearest beach all the way from Hyderabad :)

Not bad at all. I was thinking I get ripped off at such an early trip to airport from town!
