Having a short TAT for its return trip, this train does have its share of problems. I boarded this train from Bangalore to Coimbatore & found the foll issues.
• While bed roll is provided and that too only if you approach the bed roll attendant, no new pillows are provided. Passengers have to make do with the old ones if required . The reason being mentioned was that the supply of the same is not at all sufficient to meet the needs of travellers considering the 2 hour gap only at CBE before its return journey. They also need to keep quantities for the return trip.
• Cleanliness
is a bit of issue with very little time between trips. The SL coaches are just barely cleaned .The same thing exists when it reaches kurla. The train has only a 4-5 hour gap before its starts again for its trip
Not sure why railways keeps such low TAT for trains between trips. It is highly inconvenience for passengers

It's improvement prospect but our people are a major factor in spoiling that. Eg ) a gutka / paan spit in biolet will cause the death of bacteria thereby needing a recharge . The biolet commode isn't designed properly . It should have S shaped stem instead of vertical ones ..

And the passengers most affected are the ones sitting in the first bay [ seats 1-8] or 65-72. The stench sometimes is unbearable and even the presence of On board housekeeping is of no use many times.

    -@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.
