Traveled in DD today from Chennai to KRP. train departed 10 mts late and arrived 15 mts late at KRP. We were in C2 105/106. Journey was comfortable. Good breakfast and other eatables available in the train and are reasonably priced. The train looks really majestic and was happy that I was also a passenger who traveled in this train. 4/5 ratings for this train
Probably he meant Krishnarajapuram, namma KJM :)
Best for last minute travellers. . Speed and punctuality must be lauded. Less luggage is advisable due to cramped luggage rack. Eatables and drinking water are available throughout the journey.
Cleaning is carried out in a proper manner at SBC.
Not very great seats- except for the middle deck(Generally marked L while booking) which is as normal as other CC coaches the seating is good- but the top and lower decks and quite cramped
Consider yourself lucky if you get in the upper deck- the lower deck is not suitable of anyone above 5"7 as the ceiling almost touches your head- will be tough to even put the luggage in the rack
Not a train for heavy luggages- light luggage you can manage (Like Hand luggage of Planes)
Upper is better than lower, taller people can at least stand. The order of preference is middle (regular CC) > upper > lower.
is there any way to get upper deck while booking?? coz suppose i have to go to Dhanbad from Hwh n there is a DD between these 2 cities..
No.. well i have observed that Upper deck get filled first.
I dont gues stheres any method- but all bookings in MAS-DD for me my cousins were in L deck only but allotted in the middle portion
And the worst part, the CC of a legend was taken away to make way for this train
Choose c1u or c2u as coach preference on booking through irctc.. just suffix a u after c1-8. :-)
how to get middle deck? c1m?
