First of all before I start let me say everyone that I am not against Kerala Express but these are facts which I have experienced whenever I travel from Tirupur to New Delhi.
The biggest headache is getting a confirmed ticket in Kerala Express,especially in AC.
The maintenance in Kerala Express have also become worst day by day.No Cleanliness you will often see Rats in Kerala Express.

for the traveller trying to book ticket from Tirupur to New Delhi especially on Monday and Thursday please book ticket from Erode to Saharanpur in Train No 12687 and get the confirm ticket.From the day this train had been extended to Madurai I have stopped travelling in Kerala Express.
Now this is what happened.
On a fine morning around 10 AM I sat to book ticket to NZM for my parents.Now as soon as it opened within 10 minutes Kerala Express got CKWL 14 in Tatkal Sleeper Class.
Now I checked For 12687 opening quota for AC in Tatkal is 86 from Erode while Kerala have 64.I booked a successful confirmed ticket in Sleeper Class.But when Chart was prepared to my shock my parents got upgraded to AC 3 Tier. The biggest advantage of this train is Last Moment seat availability in General Quota.
I am sorry but this train 12687 is my new train for travelling to Delhi,at present no family members in my house like to travel by Kerala.
12687 do not stop at Nellore,Gudur,Itarsi,Bina,Mathura,Faridabad and food quality is good as compared to Kerala.
I know I am gonna get lots of Red but this will be useful for one who wants to travel to Dehradun or Chandigarh via Chennai.

    @all: At this time, the PNR Forum is functioning again, albeit at a greatly reduced volume and efficiency. Refreshing PNRs is a very cumbersome affair. We may expect this to end as well, eventually, as the Govt. tightens these controls further. At IRI, we CANNOT waste any more time on this fruitless...

Just Copy/Paste a small piece of text into your browser bookmarks. The bookmarklet will be available by morning. . 2. When you click on Post/Update/Refresh PNR, you will be taken to the Official...

    @all: The PNR Forum as we know it is OVER. The official website has unilaterally decided to thoroughly block and shut down all access to PNR info. We had put in MANY, many years of PAINSTAKING effort to develop the PNR Prediction infrastructure, and our Sr. Legendary Members have helped countless people...

    There are some minor changes to the PNR Forum: 1. The main PNR feed will only show UN-predicted (by you) PNRs which are coming in. However, if there are replies, the PNR will show and will bubble to the top. Once you predict the PNR, it will go away from the main...

    This is an advance notice of a new feature that will be introduced within the next couple of days. The feature is called "Spottings". . 1. Any time you see a train ANYWHERE - while railfanning, while travelling in a train, while visiting a station, seeing someone off, receiving someone, while your train...
