yes, IRCTC allots seats on random basis on availablity, but they try to provide seats nearby which are under one PNR. To avail the lower berth quota for the senior citizens, you have to fill the form seperately. In your case, since there are two senior citizens, you fill two forms seperately for them. Ask the booking clerk, to provide seats nearby. on irctc, you yourself can fill the choice of your preferred coach.

On an off season travel I had opted for booking ticket through IRCTC and found that 75 WL, so took a thakal ticket and boarded the train , and to my surprise half of the berth was empty so in a compartment only 30 persons...

If you are travelling in this train to Kannur , get down at MAJN and take bus to Central station never get an auto ..for a 10km travel they charge you 200 /- or else need the bargain power , if you get out of the station and an half km walk you can reach the main road and from there you will get buses to central station and fare is Rs 5/- most of the buses will go through the station.

Local buses can be seen during arrival of trains just outside PF 1 on left side of the parking, which gets full soon. check with tea stall boys or coolies.
