Summary:
Travel on this train if and only if you have never traveled in a Double Decker train for the sake of sitting either higher or lower than conventional trains. Otherwise, don't.
Deep review:
1. Cleanliness: Coaches are rather clean but the vestibule area and washroom really stink.
2.
...
more...
Punctuality: Punctuality is great till Tirupattur (after which it joins MAS-SBC line). Then it gets delayed till KJM. After KJM huge slack takes care of things and you reach SBC (almost) on time.
3. Food: Nothing is available for whole 7 hours of journey. Coffee machine and food vending machine are just there for show-off. No vendors. Train halts for only 2 minutes at majority of the stops. Bring your own food from home/market.
4. Ticket Availability: The best aspect of the train. You can get tickets a night before very easily. (Doesn't necessarily applies on weekends)
5. Railfanning: I travelled in C2 coach, the windows were tinted. The videos and photos that I shot had shade of yellow. The scenes were beautiful though. Watch out for hill section after Salem and then between Patchur and Mulanur. And bifurcation point after Tirupattur.
6. Safety: LHB coaches are safe. Other than reserved passengers no one enters.
7. Comfort: No comfort at all. All seats are non-reclining.

    There are some changes coming to FMT. Many of the features of FMT, like station arrival, TT, speed, geo, passing times, station time, etc. are ALREADY available in OTHER railway apps. So all of these features will be REMOVED. We'll have ONLY BLOGGING - quick upload of pics/videos/audio, etc. You may attach...

    Today, we are introducing a new Topic called NEWS-CRITIC. These days, everyday, we are bombarded with spam news, exaggerated news, misleading news, fake news, useless celebrity news, click bait with misleading headlines, etc. Also, much of the news is copied and rewritten from other news outlets, instead of being written first-hand. Everyone...
