you may get a berth allocated in this. i hv got many times but its after Bangarpet so you will loose sleep.
Return on OCT 1 may be difficult to get tatkal as its a long weekend and there are only two train kaveri and mail, Have to be really fast.

Its a holiday week. 50-50 chances of RAC getting confirmed on board. For 12657 tatkal, your transaction has to be completed by 10.02AM based on personal experience as its a long holiday. It goes off in matter of seconds. You could try Kaveri instead for Tatkal.

The function that i am attending(near Maduravoyal) will get over only by 8 PM hence Kaveri is ruled out.
Here's my plan: if i am not getting a tatkal SL in 12657, then i will somehow reach Katpadi before 12 midnight, then take the 56214 sleeper till KJM.
Maduravoyal to Ambattur(8 km), Ambattur to Arrakkonam, then to Katpadi.
From Katpadi, peaceful
sleep from 12:30 to 6 AM.

Watched this train yesterday. Dirty, ill-maintained coaches running without any coach names- just a sticker mentioning 'special' or something.
Also this train reached 1.5 hours late.
Don't know what is so premium about this premium train.
PS: my folks who had 6 SL class tickets(Rs.900) and 3 3AC tickets(~3000) missed the train owing to traffic at Maduravoyal. Sigh.
