another negative point of this train :
localites especially in kerala use it as a local/shortdistance train and stand inside ac coaches/block toilet passages without tickets ( even in precence of 2 tti )
i rarely see this happening anywere in india
Many other things also happen only in Kerala like buying platform ticket to enter stations no matter its a terminus or jn or a halt
If you have reserved sleeper tickets then brace yourself to have co-passengers right from trivandrum till kannur. The most surprising part is all stations issue sleeper tickets for this train for local passengers whereas there is no specific bogie for the same. Hence its not unusual to find sleeper coaches packed to capacity till kannur
Yes, right... Blame it on the timing of the train. This is the apt time for the officer-goers from Calicut to Kannur at the evening time to reach home without any hassle
it happens in many other trains bro..
many trains leavin a big city in d evenin or enterin in d morning office hours usually get filled up by unreserved pax in reserved coaches.. eg- Bangalore! !
