ideal to pack food items from vasco / madgaon before boarding.By the time train reaches madgaon one gets only bread ommlete and sandwiches,vada pav and samosa.next station where one can get decent food options is at hubli.

the entire sleeper class is hijacked by un reserved passengers on the run on 7th August from TVC to GHY.Surprised that even in SR there is no control on this.IN fact earlier all east bound trains from TN and Kerala have this problem in bth directions.

Railways can at the most ask them to go the gen coach where there is not an inch of space. And even if they do go, the moment train gets into another state, they come back to sleeper coaches. With only 2 gen coaches, it is simply insufficient for gen passengers.
The only solution is to have a daily train as against the current 3 trains running from kerala to GHY. It is not that advisable to travel in sleeper at least for the end to end journey in this sector.

It is running like these for years. TTE can't do anything, i doubt whether they come to check ticket. It will be fully packed and hardly he can come and check it.
But on other side, one should appreciate the reserved people, mainly migrant workers. They don't complain about unreserved and WL people. They happily share the seat and travel.

most of the unreserved coaches have a luggage rack which is so uncomfortable to occupy.Earlier coaches had a provision so that people could sit / sleep on them.Surprising that this has stopped.The coaches earlier could take in more loads which has reduced after the change and we have people standing / sleeping on the floors rather.

This runs with a diesel loco.Average delay in arrival at KJM is @ 1:30 hours.Has never been on the scheduled time of 8:00 am.Suvidha for IR but pathetic for passengers.To beat everything train cannot be tracked on 139 spot train.Coaches are old and rickety especially S1 - S3.IR is minting revenue from 3 passengers on an average on a single seat.SL runs full.Huge available list is 2 A and 3 A.

Runs full always.Keep your ticket in your pockets till TPJ.Ticket checking is very rampant and TTE rude if you take time to take out your ticket and ID proof.
Reaches TPJ before time and very punctual till ERS.Dinner can be had from TPJ.If travelling in higher classes the Coach Attendent goes outside the station premises for food parcel for himself.Try getting it through them to savour a good vegetarian dinner.
If de boarding at intermediate stations in Kerala before time arrival is a high possibility.

If you experienced one rude TTE doesn't mean all are like that. You can't generalize it like a tip. I have seen drunk TTE and smoking TTE doesn't mean every TTE is like that.

Why should I keep my ticket ready in fear of getting rude replies by the TTE? Ticket checking is what he's paid for. And he ought to wait for me to reach to it. Suggesting people to be ready with tickets is not the way to handle the problem of rude TTEs, putting up a complaint against them is.

Arrives before time @ KJM and waits for a long time before proceeding further.To save time better is to get down at KJM and proceed with public transport.
