Some were clean but the coach we got was bad and yes, We had our back packs with us but we left a bag in the train itself locking it and chaining it to the seat. Well, Not really end to end but 1 family, who were in same compartment and Main bay of the compartment were travelling from QLN to JAT. And, General ppl use it between TVC-ERN, BZA-KMT and LDH-JRC. Lot of Pass holders in these sections use this train and many use this to travel from TVC and other parts of Kerala to BPL,AGC,NDLS if they don't get tickets in Kerala Express!!!!
