Probably the Tirupati train might have a utilization of lie-over rake of some long distance train-we have to see

2778 has no such rake operations other than in SW. I think the '26xx' & '22xx' series are exhausted thats why the numbers given like this.
And same applies to upcoming TPTY Exp.

Just checked the TATKAL quota for this train (Between SBC and TPTY), its showing 'REGRET WL/1' for all days. Does Tatkal quota exist between SBC and TPTY for this train ?

Yes...IRCTC has to go a long way to improve the performance site, especially at 8 am daily. Just check their site at 8am on Wednesdays and Fridays, we cannot login at all. Only at 8:20, if u r lucky, you'll be logged in. IRCTC can use the technology of load-balancing which most of the banking sites deploy these days.

While boarding the train, you can just ask the TC if any spare Lower berth is available. Otherwise, people will definitely help you.
