Hi, about to book a ticket for 9th November. Current status for AC Chair Car is GNWL22/WL18. Should I go for it? What could be my chances?

Travelled by 12113 on 30/07/2014 from ANG to NGP.
The WDM3A that was hauling the rake from Pune had a (hydraulic?) failure just after Daund. Daund had no extra locos lying around. So Pune Shed sent a couple of WDM3Gs. Resulted in a 2-hour delay as 12113 arrived at ANG with 2 WDM3Gs lugging a dead WDM3A. Was quite a sight. All were decoupled at MMR though, from where a BSL WAP4 took us all the way.
NGP was reached after only 20 mins of delay after all the incidences. Quite impressive I

So I went to the local reservation counter to book the tickets for this train and the booking clerk says that they simply can't allot LB from the system for this train! This when 400 tickets were available!
I further asked him what more can't he book, and he replied that they can't book LB and SLB for this train. He also confirmed the fact with other booking clerks!
It has been a known fact for quite some time that even if you are booking online and specify LB when the availability is

wide open, you will never get it.
Whats with this? Has any member had any similar experiences? Is booking a WL ticket the best chance at a lottery that is LB these days? :P

Check the document. Here lies the reason. There are so many configurations for GR coaches and CRIS apparently is clueless about which one goes with which coach of which train.
So a LB in layout 1, maybe a SMB in layout 2 or a UB in layout 3.

try putting SMB as your preference and by reverse logic you might end up on a LB. I'm yet to try this. ;)

Dear 12658 Chennai Mail*^ : Yes I did, he backed up the booking clerk. :(
Dear rfZ** : That's what I did in the end! Tried booking online and gave SMB as a preference for 2 tickets, ended up with SLB and MB ! You can't second guess the twisted logic of CRIS. :D

Further to my query, I travelled in GD1 last night and it was very spacious, to my surprise. Only 4 berths, arranged in a coupe style; 2 LBs and 2 UBs. All other passengers commented that these are the best seats in GR.

I think I agree with you on this one. I always request LB and end up with SMB ! :(
Once I gave preference of LB when there were 560 tickets available and I still ended up in SMB !

Hello, does anyone know what seating configuration this rake is? 78 seats or 81 seats?
In other words, can anyone help me with deciding which berth I will get for seat no 41?
Much appreciate you all.

Does anyone know about the timings at which the food is served during this return journey? E.g. Snacks after Nadiad? I assume Dinner after Vapi? Anything else?

Had a meeting at Mumbai on 8/3/14 at 10.30 am near Dadar. Could have chosen Sinhagad Exp but love DQ too much to ignore her. But the queen delayed me that day by 30 mins ! :D
Ah well, every queen has her (off) day I suppose..

I personally do not agree with this. I have travelled several times by this exact class in this train and found it to be satisfactory.
