Coimbatore-Lokmanya Tilak Terminus(Kurla) Express/11014
I need to travel from Bangalore Cant (BNC) to Kalyan JN (KYN) (5 Passengers)
So the quota in 2A for SBC passengers is only 8.
Can i book from Hosur Jn (HSRA) and board the train at BNC as in TN quota the availability for 2A is 40 ie 120 days in advance?

Yesvantapur - Ahmedabad (Weekly) AC Express/19405
Is this a good train to travel?
Im planning to go to Kalyan, but when checking availability for 2A for Coimbatore-Lokamanya Tilak Terminus(Kurla) Express/11014 and Madurai Okha Vivek Express/19567 availability is very less for 2A. If i book all 5 members will not be together thats the problem as when i check for availability 120 days in advance its showing 8 and 6 respectively.
Express/16530 will reach late evening in Kalyan Jn and my next train to Devlali (DVL) or Nasik Road (NK) will be at night which is my final destination.
Please advice me.

nice comfortable train but only drawback is no pantry and as it is a/c express no outside vendors / hawkers are allowed inside the coaches and therefore you shall have to make arrangements for food and water which can be a bit of a problem. otherwise nice punctual clean good train.

Madurai Okha Vivek Express 19567
I want to travel from Bangalore to Kalyan JN with my family (5 members)
This train arrives Kalyan in the morning so i feel this is the best train for my travel.
i checked for availability in 2A from Krishnarajapuram (KJM) to Kalyan JN (KYN) on 14/01/2013 it always shows only 6 availability. Im checking 120 days in advance.
Since the train starts from Madurai i checked availiability from Madurai (MDU) to Kalyan JN (KYN) then also its showing the same.
Why only 6 is availabe? Is the rest seats/berths reserved for some other quota?
Is it that i need to go to the reservation counter directly & book rather than doing online in IRCTC?

So there is different quotas.
Coz when i checked for Udyan it was showing more availability, think its because starting point is SBC. The only problem is this train reaches Kalyan late evening and from there i have to take another train to Devlali (DVL) or Nasik Road (NK) which is my final destination.
Vivek express was a good option as its arriving
in morning.
Same way when i checked Coimbatore-Lokamanya Tilak Terminus(Kurla) Express/11014 it is showing availability 8 for 2A from BNC to KYN. From Coimbatore its showing available 35 for 2A. I understand the starting point is from Coimbatore so that quota will be more from there something like TN quota.
The thing which confused me was for Vivek express it must show availability more from Madurai, something like TN quota if im not wrong. But its showing availability 6 for 2A from Madurai also. Im checking for availability 120 days in advance and at 8am in the morning so there is no chance for all the seat/berth to get filled up so fast (120 days advance).
Why is it showing only 6 from Madurai also?

The sad thing of booking is all the 5 members will be scattered in the compartment. I want everyone to be together. i did a mock online booking and cancelled to see how the seating would be. Its better to think of 3A in Coimbatore-Lokamanya Tilak Terminus(Kurla) Express/11014 as all will be together.
Or is it that internet booking there is a seperate quota? so only it is showing availability less even though im checking 120days in advance?

When we check the availability in 2A for Vivek Express from Krishnarajapuram (KJM) to Kalyan JN (KYN) it always shows only 6 availability. When i checked from Madurai (MDU) to Kalyan JN (KYN) then also its showing same.
Y it shows only 6? is the rest seats/berths reserved fro some other quota?
