Beware while booking 2AC in this train.. It can surprise you with a 3rd AC coach instead of a 2AC coach...

Does this issue still persists?? I have booked in 2a for journey in may ( 12626, NDLS-TVC). Hope this issue is sorted out!.
One such incident happened with my father n brother, maybe a deacde back. They had tickets for 2a,but no coach NDLS-TVC. finally they had to travel in general upto jhansi, then were given 3a berths.
In one of my trip, train didn't have pantry car. Passengers where literally running for food n water at major stoppages.

Jul 07 2014 (06:44)   Railway Budget: State hopes for a fair deal

Peninsular Railway Zone top on wish list
Will the change of guard at the Centre and the “next door” Union Railway Minister D.V. Sadananda Gowda help Kerala accomplish the aspirations for the development of the railway network of the State and put an end to the neglect meted out over the years?
Rail users and officials in Thiruvananthapuram and Palakkad divisions are hoping that Kerala will get a better deal in the maiden Railway Budget being presented by Mr. Gowda in the Lok Sabha on July 8.
The big question doing the rounds is whether Mr. Gowda will announce the long-pending formation of the Peninsular Railway Zone for Kerala.
Railway sources said the zone is likely to be a compensation for the bifurcation of the truncated Palakkad railway division for creating a new division in Mangalore.
The State had followed the homework done in November last by prioritising the needs of the rail network and seeking more funds after the BJP came to power.
CM writes to Modi
Chief Minister Oommen Chandy had personally written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Mr. Gowda in May on the immediate needs.
It is learnt that the State did not give an exhaustive list or memorandum on the railway development as in November last for consideration in the Railway Budget.
Priority list
Official sources said the Chief Minister had personally taken up the critical projects identified with the Union Railway Minister during his visit to New Delhi. The priority list of pending projects and railway works was circulated among the MPs from the State at a pre-budget meeting convened here on June 27.
The State is hopeful of an enhanced allocation for the sanctioned projects in addition to new projects and trains this time like when BJP leader O. Rajagopal was Minister of State for Railways in the Vajpayee government.
Last budget
The State was given a meagre allocation and a poor deal in terms of new projects and trains in the 2013-14 Railway Budget and in the interim budget presented in February before the Lok Sabha elections.
The resource crunch faced by the Railways will be reflected in the budget to be presented by Mr. Gowda. The Railways had been demanding 50 per cent cost sharing for new projects and the Public-Private- Partnership mode even for doubling and laying new railway lines, the sources said.

@Tintumon UKG B
you seem to be aggressive in getting a seprate rly for kerala... and not interested in public / new trains...
do you know kerala is well connected to all India with its trains as TVC (state capital) is in south most kerala ...
TN, MS/MAS is in north,... so South of TN is neglected in well connectivity to NDLS/HWH/CST/Jaipur/ Ahmedabad or even MS or SBC ...
you talking of LHB coaches... coaches not prob.. when good number of high speed trains comeup with elec loco pulling, Kapurthala plant produces more coaches ... which would reach KL/ KAR / TN trains too ... as LHB coaches are costly but with high safety... and the coach factory has got the technology transfer ...
so, LHB coaches hijacked by TN trains (dont know if that is the case) as you say is not proper word ...
this forum may just argue for more trains, better amenities not for divisions, politics...

As of now it can be seen that from trivandrum to ERS the sleeper coaches are in front followed by the AC coaches at the rear (S-1,S-2..... till S-12 followed by B1-B2-B3-B4-B5-A1-A2) From Ernakulam due to engine reversal, the order reverses and the AC coaches are in front (SLR-GN-A2-A1-B5-B4....PC, S-12,S-11 till S-1 and Gen).
I think it needs to be mentioned TVC to ERS and ERS to Delhi (NDLS) separately for better understanding. But there have been a few occasions when the order has also changed from TVC but most of the time it is as mentioned here .
