Hi Experts,
I want to book tickets for 3 persons(including one infant) for 5-Sep-2016 for 18463 from EE-SBC in 2A. Yesterday(8th June)night I had booked tickets, but unfortunately even after giving berth preference as Lower and Upper(also selected book only if atleast 1 Lower berth is booked) I got Side Lower and Upper. Its difficult to sleep in Side Lower berth with an infant, so again tried booking by selecting both lower, but the transaction did not go through. Currently the availability shows Available 11, If I book through PRS Counter are there any chances of getting Lower Berth?
in advance.

presently there are still 11 berths available in 18463 between EE and SBC for journey on 5.9.2016. Also, you are not eligible for any quota other than General Quota.
For better chances of getting a confirmed lower berth, you may either visit your nearest PRS Counter and request the booking clerk for the same, else you may try your luck again through IRCTC. But please note that there is no fool-proof way of getting a confirmed Lower Berth through IRCTC, other than selecting the option 'Book my ticket if at least one lower berth is allotted' and still there is a risk of getting allotted a side lower berth again. Also keep in mind that the charges for cancellation of confirmed
ticket is very high (in all the classes)

You should go to PRS counter, ask booking staff to book ticket only if Lower Birth is allotted. PRS staff can see the allotted/available seat before finally book and print it.

Sir, you may expect someone great in this beautiful country who will happily agree to exchange his / her Lower seat. Just make sure you get a Side Lower confirmed seat :)

Guys, any of you have experience carrying >=32'' LCD/LED TV in a night train along with you in your coach and not as a separate parcel in parcel van? Pls provide feedback and let me know if there were any challenges/issues. Thanks.

This is my experience:
I had carried 32" LCD TV in Seshadri Express from blr. I need to take to my hometown which is EE. I had a ticket in 2A from KJM to TPTY and took tatkal ticket from TPTY to BZA in 2A, luckily for both tickets I got Lower Berth. In KJM I went to Station Master, he directed me to go to some other room where they book luggage. Paid Luggage charges and had asked them to give luggage receipt till EE, but they refused saying that they can give luggage receipt only till the point I have the ticket. So they gave till BZA. In train TTE asked me what is it.
I told that it is LCD TV, he asked for luggage receipt. As soon as I got in BZA, I went outside to take ticket to EE for Early Morning Passenger train(which goes till RJY) the TC at the exit asked me to show luggage receipt and did not bother about the travel ticket. After seeing luggage receipt he allowed me to go outside. After purchasing new ticket I went and took luggage receipt from BZA to EE. While entering the same TC asked whether I took luggage receipt or not, I had showed him that then he allowed me to go inside. I had carried it with my hands.
