This is a nice train from HWH-MAS if you are trying to take ticket in 12841 and not getting CNF ticket then you can check on this and this train will provide you CNF/RAC accommodation. 12839/40 runs in a very tight schedule if you compare with 12841 with 12839 then 12839 takes only 01:40Hrs more than 12841 in-spite of having numerous halts. But these two have one thing in common and that is Coromandal/Madras Mail will never disappoints you in terms of punctuality and speed.
If you have got accommodation in AC class then it's very fine for you as AC classes are very neat and tidy but if you go over SL class then there's a little bit of disappointment as

SL's are not so good though this train has OBHS (On Board House Keeping) and they never do there work nicely. SL classes runs in high WL through out the year so it will be little bit crowded. I have never taken food items from PC so no comments but you can have food items from VSKP/BZA/BBS and they serves good food items. 12839 has CBC rake so safety is good and you will feel jerks very often.
All the coaches are 2006/2008 made so you will not find 3 pin socket easily, sockets are available on either end of the coaches(near vestibule upside).
I would like write about the comparison of 12839/40 and 12841/42(Only of running time).

    @all: This is to formally announce the END of the RailCal app. Due to the information blockade, the app has lost its value, and has been rendered completely useless. We are unable to support RailCal anymore. Sorry to disappoint our users. . RailCal has already been taken off the Google PlayStore. So once...

    @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...

    @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...
