For us Railfans Side Lower berth, be it in AC or SL, owns a special place. Whenever most of us book tickets, we try to get any SL berth. But some of us always get the same berth everytime in any train. On which SL berth you hav travelled the most, if you remember with a CNF ticket. Not as RAC.

We all have a craving for SLB be it 3AC or 2Ac or SL. Before Feb 2011 I used to like LB since higher chances of getting a window seat as there are 7 SLBs kept for RAC , but while booking a ticket in 12826 Jh SK from NDLS to RNC for 26/2/2011, for a change I asked the ECRC at Dakaniya Talav ( small station in KOTA) for a SL. I was provided S1/63. That was my first SLB ride. From then my first preference is SLB. I don't care if it is near the gate or any other SL, it just needs to be a SLB. I can plan my journeys 4 months in advance and I probably try to book the ticket at sharp 8 am on 120 days ARP, and 99% of times I am allotted a SLB. For me I want a SLB because...
I am fat (currently losing weight) so problematic in climbing to UB/SU. I hardly sleep during train journeys, so SLB is a boon as in LB one cannot be seated when MB is laid. In my recent journey from Hatia to Pune of 31 hrs I slept for almost 5-6 hrs in total so I choose SLB. And also there are less people who ask a SLB owner for an exchange. If you hav a LB there are high chances that you may be asked for exchange of berth by families or ladies. For some the partition gap in SLB.is problematic while sleeping but since I don't sleep much in trains, then I am OK with that. Except berth no. 39, have travelled on all SLBs.

i always book online for SL wih choice and I do get it but every time people come to me for adjustments. Every time... Each and every time somebody comes. Its very irritating as i book that with full excitement and people spill water on that
