Catch the extraordinary view of the early morning Intercity Express train bound to Ernakulam hauled by Double headed ALCo twins gracefully climbing the elevated ramp just looks like a Fly-over deviating from the main lines to join the Bangalore Salem line via Hosur . The train is restricted to move at 15 kmph speed until it completely changes the tracks to join the branch line.

Does this train run timely? I want to catch Thiruvanathapuram Veraval exp which pass from ernakulam north. What is the distance between ERS and ERN and how to reach ERN from ERS?

Yes-it runs on time and anyway you have 3 hrs to catch that train on reaching ERS
Or else catch it at Thrissur itself-no need to shift stations

Understand. Even so, any recent photos would be useful. Some more questions since this is my first trip in 2S on this train (I have travelled before when they had 3A) - are the seats and legroom reasonably comfortable for a 9+ hour journey especially for elderly people? Is there room for small bags under the seats in addition to the overhead racks? There is a pantry car so I assume food is served in 2S class. Are there folding tables attached to seats in front to hold food trays? Thanks.

Foot space yes....
Food pretty good...
No tables for holding food. It's a 6 by 6 opposite seating...
From where to where travelling?
If you Don't mind spending money for comfort I suggest you to book in kurla exp if boarding point in Coimbatore...
BTW this train never had a 3a..

Thanks for your reply. I thought 2S is bench style seating with all seats/rows facing in one direction. My last trip was in 2009 when I thought they had 3A but maybe I am mistaken. Is this 6x6 seating on one side and 1x1 on the other separated by the walkway? I am travelling from Bangalore to Thrissur.

Any responses to my question on the seating config? Is it 6x6 on one side and 1x1 on the other with the walkway in between?

No- is 2S seating having 3 seats on either sides- since some coaches are old they face opposite sides rather than being single side
something like normal ordinary bus seats that you find in KSRTC

Thanks for the responses and the photo. I have a reasonable idea now about the seating layout. Thanks also for the confirmation that this train used to have 3A.
