I have planned to travel to PGT on 29th. I generally travel in 12685 but this time I have booked in Both 12685 and this train. For a change I thought of traveling in 12695. Some one please post how is the travel experience in this train compared to 12685. I have booked ticket in both these trains
12695 generally leaves MAS on time; coaches are in no great shape and maintenance is average(CD/BBQ). If travelling on working day, you will have to 'adjust' with regular passengers(mostly railway employees on free pass) till AJJ/KPD, mostly in 3A. Apart from that no hassles observed. Think e catering is available in this train now.
Anyway, it will have a terrific run during night & hence will arrive PGT on time. So have a happy journey.
Thanks a lot for the info... I have a Side Lower Berth and I hope it is on the Track side so that I can have good RF..
With effective from1/4/2015 ,IRCTC levies a service charge of Rs.20 plus service Tax/- (Second /Sleeper) and Rs.40 plus service Tax/-per e-ticket in case of all other classes(1AC,2AC,3AC,CC,3E,FC) irrespective of the number of passengers booked on an e-ticket,which was 10 and 20 respectively ....

For I Tickets 80 rs for SL/2S and 120 for all other class...
I support the hike but they should have spared the increase for tickets within rs 100 or so. For ex, A 2S ticket for say rs 60 will now cost close to rs 95 (including bank charges) as against just rs 65 at counter. Rs 10 for 2S and SL tickets under rs 100 should have been better.
I am planning to travel on this train from ED till TRVL on 2nd April. The current status is WL42 in SL. Will this get cleared?
Any suggestion guys, any chance that this will be get cleared? should i book the tickets in WL?
Train is waiting at CNGR for Venad Express. This is a regular delay and this can be avoided only by completion of Doubling work between CNGR and TRVL.
Every budget will allocate sufficient fund and the leaders in Railway is more interested to divert this fund for other activities in Southern Railway. TVC division always neglected by not providing fund by Southern Railway.
Onboard MAS TVC SF!
