We want to take the train from Madurai to Chennai on 23/7/2015, 1st class but we are with 23 students and 6 teachers (from Belgium)
Is it correct that their are only 15 seats available?

This is a real good alternative and is running every day. Can I somewhere see the difference between 3ac and 2ac. What is a 'sleeper', is very cheap?

First AC - Berth length and width is more than other class and has cabin/coupe for 4/2 pax. Good for pax expecting 100% privacy.
Second AC - Only 6 Pax per bay with curtains for privacy. Less pax in coach than 3rd AC.
Third AC - 8 Pax per bay. Will look little bit crowded and noise level will be more due to pax speaking. This should not be a big issue since train travels most of its part i night time.
- Same as 3AC without AC.
2AC will be a good option.

3AC has 64 Berths capacity & 2AC has 46 berths...2AC has better privacy and comfort. Only UB & LB will be there and curtains will be there along side berths. Since you are a party of 29 members book in 2AC and can enjoy the travel.

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

Red Flags can be removed by FMs, only against specific complaints filed against the blog. This does not give all members the right to complain against EVERY single red flag they...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far. It gives me immense pleasure in congratulating them for running the team diligently, professionally, competently and above all, without a shred of controversy or bias. The FM position...
