Unreserved passsengers travelling from Mysore to Bangalore find it extremely difficult to find seats which are unreserved. It is necessary to keep a few bogies wholly unreserved with bold display to avoid last minute in convenience to travelling public . Reserved passengers coming in the last minute and claiming their seats is a very common sight in Mysore Station for this Train. Since major portion of the travelling time involves day journey, reservation charges
as applicble for sitting accommodation is to be charged instead of charging sleeper charges of Rs80 for a 3 hour journey.Please take necessary steps to avoid harassment of passengers.

True,and of late this train is packed almost everyday from MYS to SBC with passengers sitting on upper berths and some even standing!I avoided this train twice last week as it was over crowded and traveled by 16557-Rajya Rani Express....
Regarding reserved passengers claiming seats,usually S1 to S4 is blocked for Reserved Passengers(usually from MYS to beyond SBC) and if these are filled,seats to passengers traveling only upto SBC are allocated in other coaches.As charts are put up in MYS,its advisible that one sees the chart and then boards the train to confirm if there are any seats reserved from Mysore in the coach they are entering. The coaches from S5-S11 cannot be marked as "UNRESERVED" as passengers for these coaches
will board from KGI,SBC and it'll create confusion in these stations.

To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
