V. detailed,informative,wonderful !
The Train Usually Departs Late from Bandra Terminus (Usually 15-20mins late) due to Late departure of Paschim Exp(Usually 10-15mins Late) & rake shunting of Veraval Exp. Train doesn't have a PC But Vendors are always there till Ahmedabad to Sell Food in this Train. Having Lunch at BDTS Itself & Taking Dinner at Ahmedabad Station is Preffered Most. OBHS Staff does Regular Cleaning Till Ahmedabad & after that they Dissapear.
The Train Usually Overtakes Paschim Exp Before Surat (Usually at Amalsad) and Even with Delayed dep the Train manages to reach Surat On Time(most of the times). Ahmedabad Arrival will Always be delayed by Atleast 10mins with same delay while departure. After Ahmedabad Till Jodhpur no one comes in the Train(Night Travel).
At Jodhpur You can have Tea and take some Breakfast from Jodhpur itself(mostly preffered) or MTD.Take Water Bottles from Jodhpur itself as after that water is Salty at All stations till Hisar.
The Train will be delayed by Atleast 20-25mins at Jodhpur and 40Mins at Merta Road. From Merta The Train Usually covers all delay till Ratangarh. At Ratangarh you can buy Puri - Aloo Sabji at 15rs(7-8 Puri and decent amount of Sabzi), it's really delicious. After Ratangarh Till Hisar no one even comes to sell Water bottles also so please buy Water Bottles latest by MTD. After Ratangarh the Train will wait for Salasar Exp after Churu & Will Arrive Hisar Usually 15mins Before Time. Here 60% of the train is emptied. Please have a Lunch here as after that u have to enjoy a passenger Train ride. The train trails Sirsa - Ludhiana Passenger from Hisar Till Ludhiana for about 5.30hrs and will wait for Each Crossing due to high slack given & usually take unscheduled halt at Jakhal Jn as the Train Crosses Delhi - Bathinda main line. Ludhiana Shatabdi Will cross near to Dhuri usually 1 station before dhuri. Usually Ludhiana arrival is On Scheduled Time due to heavy slack given in Hisar - Ludhiana. Although sometimes Ludhiana Passenger is delayed and 19027 may be given priority to be ahead of passenger, but still train will be trolled till Ludhiana again. Post Ludhiana it's a Decent run till Jammu Tawi. Train usually reaches Jammu On Time.
This Train runs packed all seasons through out the year. Recently train has Been Given LHB Coaches & is on Time 99% of The runs. Thanks..!

It was the day of 11th November, 2016. In the morning, I received a message... "My marriage is on 24th Jan, 2017 and reception on 26th Jan, 2017. Do come if possible". This was the message from our RF friend, Nikhil Shah from Chennai. It took me sometime to discuss the trip with our friends... and then Finally the trip was decided. We planned a long trip itinerary from NDLS - MAS - MAQ - KUMTA - MAQ - MAS - NDLS. My Life's 1st Long journey. My first option was always the Great Boss King TAMILNADU EXPRESS. I booked tkt in SL class in the beginning but 2 weeks before the journey, cancelled them and booked in 3A. The trip was joined by the Ankit Duos, Ankit Sharma and Ankit from JMP. They met me at the last moment at NDLS. The train was already resch by 2+ hours, due...
to heavy fog and late arrival at NDLS. Well met, had some RF session and then went to the PF. To our surprise, the link which GT brought in the morning, was attached to TN. A chill of sheer joy went down the spines. White Beast, Clean one from RPM was to haul our train. While Ankit had booked in 2A, I had my SLB in 3A.
Stay tuned for more

Good Morning
My Observations:
Captured 17316 Velankanni Vasco Da Gama Express in Tiruchchirapalli Jn Platform one with its regular link ED WDM 3D 11223. It underwent Loco Reversal and NOT Loco Change to Electric in Tiruchirapalli Jn. The same may take place in Erode Jn.
12665 suffered Over Take of 12661 Podhigai, 12637 Pandian SF and 16179 Mannai Express at due to loco failure (As an RF travelling in that train told the same to me to be the most possible and feasible reason) of the same in Mundilyampakkam (6 Ins from Villupuram Jn). Noticed
in TPJ with the same loco again at 03.36 in Platform No 4.
Apologies for blurred capture since my maiden capture through grills of window from 16106 Tiruchendur Chennai Egmore Express that is led by TNP WDM 3A 16863R that came 20 mts early to TPJ.
Also, attached the announcement of 17316 Velankanni Vasco Da Gama in Tiruchchirapalli Jn.
16724 Ananthapuri Expressat TPJ outer noticed with some WAP 4.
Noticed 06028 Kollam Jn Tambaram Special Fare Special with ED WDM 3A 16564 in ALU, so for your kind info, it may be running with End to End Diesel Loco.(I am not sure if LC happens at VM.)
16851 Chennai Egmore Rameswaram Express arrives Tiruchchirapalli Jn PF 5 with GOC WDM 3A 16879R.
That's all folks!
