Please watch out for the correct train number from the board or listen to announcements very carefully if you are boardign this train at Chennai Central- since 12296 from Patna often reaches late there is always chance that both the up and down trains meet up at chennai Central and its very difficult to make out which side its heading as both have loco reversals
12296 is Bangalore bound(Via Katpadi, jolarpettai) and 12295 is Patna bound(Via Vijayawada, Nagpur, Itarsi, Jabalpur) Express
This reminds of 12840 and 12839 meeting at VSKP, if 12840 is delayed and 12839 arrives BT.
Yep-same issue exists- what about 18463/64- guess they too have close timings
I c 12864/63 at d same tym in SLO..
Generally one of d two is made to wait in d outervso that ppl dnt get confused
This reminds me of an old Sardarji joke. A sardarji boards GT Exp at Madras bound for New Delhi. At Nagpur by mistake gets on in to Madras bound GT. They used to meet at NGP those days. He gets on to his top berth. Around Wardha he asks his co-passenger when will the train reach Itarsi. Then he learns the train is bound for Madras. He says great Indian technology the upper berths are going to New Delhi and lower berths to Madras.
Same problem at CBE also
1. Train No 12677/12678
2. Train No 13351/13352
also both will stand at adjacent pf sometimes ,and there is no coach indicator board at MAS,which can show train no and coach no
same confusion at nagpur with gt express , one going to chennai and one going to mas , but here delhi going train will always be pf 1 and one going to madras will be at platform 2
Kai bar jb late hoti h to
ET pr b dono train sath khadi rahti h
same base platform pr
Want to travel to chennai from sbc and its a last minute travel with no confirmed ticket in hand ..just book a sleeper ticket from sbc to mas in sangha..no matter what the RSWL , just book it , the ticket will CONFIRM...and also the chart for this train prepares quite late , so dont think twice ..just book the ticket..
not a single WL in the 101 PNR entries ..
True, it gets good occupancy from BZA and onwards
I feel upto BZA, AC class either will get confirm.
there is not a single WL ticket for any class between sbc n mas ...that clearly states everything confirms in this sector in this train...
just 1 more example ..
If i book tkt til Nlr wil it get cnf, 4rm sbc-NLR .
but its very tough to get further tickets for ngp jbp mgs till pnbe too much demanding train
but sure shot tickets to MAS when brindavan and chennai intercity runs jam packed ..
the only thing behind this is it is the only daily connectivity from sbc-mas to cities like patna ald mgs
never try to board this train between allhabad to mgs.
Please make sure that the tip you put up is useful, the one posted by you is really plain and misleading, coz there is no reason mentioned, presuming that you are referring to the huge unreserved crowd occupying reserved seats, this should not be a problem if someone is travelling in an AC coach, so that calls upon for better details from your side when you post a tip.
