After a long time today travelled in TVC Mail, from MAS to TVC
Few Observations:
1) Awesome speed and punctuality
2) Normal Rake (No CBC Rake) so no jerking
3) Poor maintenance : i
travelled in S4, in our bay 2 Fans are not functioning from MAS itself, also no water in the door side wash basin, toilets are too much stinky from MAS itself
4) Train run slowly on CBE-PGT (Walayar sector) , also with continuous honk, i think its due to avoid elephants get injury and killed (recently 3 to 4 wild elephants were killed , while crossing the track) : Anyway its good move , we need to save our Elephants
5) Sorry to write this : i am not here to pinpoint any particular region people, but thats the true : 2 persons from U.P (while they interact with TTE i came to know their place), board and travelled in our coach , they had only unreserved tickets, they are travelling from MAS to QLN , beginning onwards they keep on roaming here and there whenever TTE comes, one TTE warn them in KPD itself, ask them to go to General compartment, after some time then again came to sleeper coaches. (in our bay one upper berth is empty- they are aware of this)
Those 2 guys came and occupy the single upper berth), started talking loudly , few passengers ask them to reduce the noise. finally those 2 guys slept in a single upper berth). in PGT one girl board the train , She booked from PGT to ERN. i think its around 3.30 am. once she board the train , she ask them to get off the berth as she reserved that berth, one guy get off from the berth, but another guy not ready to leave the berth, even myself and one more guy , told them in English to leave the berth, but no response. finally TTE came (its another TTE), he switched on the light and warned that guy in Hindi, then he get off the berth.
till ERN there was no disturbance from those guys, after ERN they came again and occupy the same berth till QLN
i really wondered whether they dont know English or simply doing wantedly)
