I will be travelling on this train next month, and opted for Bed Rolls. Are there any attendants in the coach who will be providing those bedrolls, or will they keep it on our seat/berth? Experts please confirm. Thanks.

Once you've opted for it, you just gotta go and ask for it.

They will provide Two bed sheets and one small towel laundry washed packed in envelope along with one Blanket and a Pillow. The attendant will provide all this on your seat so stop bothering about these things and pack your bags for a wonderful trip...Happy journey in advance.

Used to travel in this train during my childhood days, then 1081/1082 from Mumbai to Trichur and back. After 1998 when KR opened, stopped travelling in Jayanti Janata. But lots of memories of this train.

Just a thought. If anyone can answer.
I believe that WDP4 series are of higher quality than WDP3A series, so why TVC Raj being hauled by WDP3A being a premium train?

since Raj is an EOG (End on Generation) type train, it's weight is less and hence WDP 3A is more than enough for it. Also unlike WDP 4, it has no long hood forward issues being dual cabbed, and so has a high speed rating. WDP 4 in LHF is restricted to 90 or 100 while WDP 3A is cleared for 120 Kmph.
WDP 4D is dual cabbed but its length means that it is given speed certifcate for 105 Kmph.

WDP3A is more than sufficient for TVC Raj at present though there have been some rare cases when TVC Raj got EMDs too. And besides, it is a dual cab loco, so, no need to worry about LHF mode :P
