Hi Guys,
I need to travel from SC-VSKP on 15th May. GR has WL66. Any chance of it getting confirmed or can you suggest any evening/night trains?

Thanks Raj Gopal. That's what I was wondering as well.
Since there isn't a chance of even RAC in any other train, Guess I will have to go with GR & hope for the best :)

Traveled by this train Yesterday i..e 16th Feb.
Started at VSKP: 10.45 (approx) from Platform 1
Arrived SC: 11.10 (approx) on Platform 2. 3 hrs LATE :(
All passengers were so frustrated since from Jangaon it was literally stopping every 20 min or so. Also with no pantry car/ catering service, most
of them were hungry with no coffee/tea/breakfast.
Coach Attended reason: Train got delayed before vijayawada (around 40min to 1hr) & again at Kazipet . Not sure how true this is, but this is the info from coach attendant.
Sad to see a Duronto running with an Avg late time of 40 min.

Would have loved to but unfortunately, didn't keep track/notice of timings at various stations this time since had a very hectic weekend & dozed off upon departure ;) only to wake up at 7.45am to see we were still yet to reach Jangaon.
So just posted whatever info i could get from the coach attendant

If possible book train from MAS as AC express is vacant and reaching MAS from CBE is not a big deal i believe.

Hi Members,
I plan to travel from Coimbatore to Chennai on Nov 10th.
My preference is: any night train, 2AC/3AC 1st choice. SL in worst case scenario.
As of now all these classes are in pretty high WL.
appreciate if you can suggest which train would be a good bet to make a reservation.

Guys, can someone comment if it will get confirmed since its only 2 more days for the departure date and looking at the way the WL has moved from 20 to 13 in a month, I am kind of in a dilemma about the need to look for alternate arrangements..
