Has seen AC locos being regularly transferred from ERS to ED by this train. DSL locos get transferred to ED from ERS by ERS - KIK Tea Garden Express as well. Both these trains have operating crew from ED; has it got something to do with these regular transfer of locos?!
Yup , Many trains will act as loco carriers , Eg MS-MAQ express was taking the WDP 4D/4B from GOC to MAQ. Same way MAS-AJJ passenger will take AJJ WAP1 to AJJ AC ELS
Is this the only intercity in India having PC?
vaigai,mas-sbc lalbagh,mas-sbc ice has pc
DQ Karnavati also having Pc
12680/12679 CBE - MAS - CBE Intercity has PC.
16302/01 TVC - SRR - TVC Venad Express & 16350/49 NCJ - MAQ Parasuram Express too have Pantry Cars(though these can't be called 'Intercity Express').
All major sf ice trains in scr,swr and sr has PC...except my fav train Sidhaganga exp
May be bc of RSA not considered
ICEs are synonymous with their pantry cars. Come down south and we will take you on Vaigai and see what varieties you have on offer, esp Rava Kesari, vadas, samosas, cutlets, soups, dosas.... I, for one, travel on ICEs for their pantries.
Even Talguppa-Mysore express
Is it a crowded trains like tippu or sidhaganaga?
Totally empty, just for the count of ICE I added it
Twin WDG4, Gooty Shed did the honor!!
I had recently travelled by Ernakulam - Bangalore Superfast Express Train (Train No:12678) on 02.08.2015 by D1 coach. The seat number alloted was 101 and 100 but unfortunately the last number on the coach was only 90. we had to struggle to get the TTE at Erode who gave us the new numbers at Erode. Also the coach is detached from the rest of the coach, i mean no vestible. the vestible starts from D2. though the pantry service is good in this train, just because D1 coach is disconnected, we could hardly use the pantry service. Though it is a reserved coach, it is being treated as unreserved coach. The concerned railways shall normalize the coach and make it vestible with other coaches.
