I took this train on Thursday night. There was a train to Marikuppam stranded at BNC for a long time and so this train departed Cantt 1 hour late, yet made up the delay on arrival at KCG - nice!

Booked a couple of tickets on this train, got seat numbers 75 and 76. Do the LHB coaches have that many seats in them?

This doesn't seem to be a very popular train, seats in all classes are available till the last few days.
I think people prefer the departure out of SBC later on, as that is a faster train.

Departure from YPR is at 15:30 which is not feasible for people to complete their work and catch the train.

How is the SL experience on this train? I am travelling from CAN to MAS - will the compartment be very crowded with WL/Unreserved pax?

Till PGT/PTJ unreserved passengers will be there. And of course WL passengers will also be there. Especially if the train is running on the last day of long weekend.

Train will be absoultely packed with unreserved sleeper passengers. But you will get your seat if you tell them that it is yours.

Took this train from MAS to YPR yesterday, got held up at Bangarapet for like 45 mins. and reached YPR at 2235 and not 2135 as was scheduled. Let's see if this is eventually reflected in the Arr/Dep details here...

Just booked a 2AC in this train in its HA1 compartment. Are their chargers in the SLB area in the coach?

Travelled in 16021 on MAS-SBC Kaveri Express last night in the B1 compartment. So what is this I hear that the Railways have decided to do away with the privacy curtains? Why!?
Is 3A now just a glorified SL then?

The way I see it, they decided to pull the plug on them just because a 3A compartment on the SBC-Nanded express caught fire, notwithstanding the fact that the curtains are reportedly fire-retardant, and 2A use more or less the same ones!

To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

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