This particular train runs fairly empty. You can easily get tickets and seats as well.
A walkthrough to getting a seat in 56141.
1) Reach Coonoor Railway station as early as you please (need for reaching early depends on season, I reached at 06:45 in June and was 5th in the queue)
There'd be a queue near the UTS counter. Sit in the queue.
3) The counter will open at 07:30 sharp.
4) Tender exact change for a hassle free ticketing experience.
5) Tickets for first class are also available at 50 or 60 INR per ticket (don't remember precisely). Ticket in second class costs 10/- INR.
6) Board the train on a first come first serve basis. (It'll be empty anyway so hardly matters).
Meanwhile you can enjoy steamy sambhar vada available at ONR for breakfast. You'd love it!

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    A minor update, but may impact many members: Hereafter, FMs will be able to delete invalid Red Flags on Imaginary trains.

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far. It gives me immense pleasure in congratulating them for running the team diligently, professionally, competently and above all, without a shred of controversy or bias. The FM position...
