12678, Ernakulam Bangalore. I had pretty bad travel experience today. I traveled with two small kids (4 and 3) and wife. My boarding station was Trichur. When I got in, all overhead bins were full even though there were lots of empty seats. People from Ernakulam had occupied all. I tried to put my trolly beneath but it was not fitting in. Then I asked around to give me space to keep at least one piece so that my kids will have space to stand. No body responded. I repeatedly asked, then I decided to bring one down. Apparently they were one empty slot somewhere it seems. Anyway the owner of that luggage got into an argument by saying anyone can keep luggage anywhere and it is not mandated that people will get space to keep luggage, I didn't say anything since I don't know. I don't know why railways
in which coach did you travel in 2S or genaral. in 12678 if you had traveled in a reserved 2S there will be no issue of keeping your luggage as a seat is designated for you. if the case was in genaral it like first in first basis.
I traveled in AC chair car.
Then there should not be any challenges, but nowadays who all are travelling is used with heavy luggages.
It is always a problem in 12678 from ERS. I have seen many times people coming by International flights land in COK and take this train to CBE. They invariably carry Big suitcases and travel by AC Chair car. Some times they block the passage. When we complain to TTE he ignores us. I even suspect these people may not even have paid Excess Baggge charges
exactly , nowadays its a common scene in all trains including Rajdhani people used to carry heavy luggages which is causing a lof of discomfort to the co passengers. Not in Train in flights too a normal peron will carry 3 bags in the name of cabin baggage.
Spotted with off link KJM WDP 4 at BNC now
Looking at the waiting list in the AC Chair Car, it wouldn't hurt adding one more CC to this train..
Yes, but that is only because of scarcity of CC coaches with SR/TVC. Two coaches were rendered useless after the accident. In fact, they are still lying at the accident spot.
I thought 2 new coaches were added post the accident. Hasn't it been done? Is the train running with lesser coaches?
The timing seems to have changed for few stations like HSRA, CBE. Please change it accordingly
Going from CBE to SBC in AC class :
Should I opt this train to travel in hot summer in day time ?
It the timings suit your plans you can well take it this is one of few dailies between CBE-SBC..BTW what is your DOJ???
Not fixed but it could be in second week of June :)
Hmm Second Week of June means the Temperatures shall sure drop..Monsoon would start to set in could be a pleasant enough weather so can go ahead.But if your DOJ is fixed better book tickets in prior it since its a bit demanding train.
Thanks for your nice guidance about bookings and weather conditions during proposed journey time... please tell me whether CC means AC or Non AC for this train?
2S - Non -AC Sitting Reserved.
CC - AC Chair Car Reserved.
