chart is prepared and you are still wiatlisted, so you are not allowed to board the train with the ticket. If you booked ticket online, dont do anything, your money will be refunded to your account. If you booked ticket by visiting reservation center (prs), you need to go and cancel this ticket. If you booked ticket at reservation counter, and you want to travel, contact the tte at the time of the travel and check with him, if there is any vacant berth, if its there he can allow you to travel.

Hi, I hope to get some advice. I am from South Africa and am travelling around India for a while. The rail system is confusing me! If I book a ticket online that is WL10 (for example) what are the chances of one actually getting on the train? Also I believe there is a "tourist quota"available-- how do you book tickets this way?
These are the trips I want to do in the next while:
Trichy - Hospet Junction (7th of March)
Junction - Goa (10th of March)
Looking on cleartrip these trains are full. But does it mean I cannot get a ticket? Is it still possible?
Please advise me!
Thank you!!

Re# 708044-6            Tags   Past Edits
Trichy to Hospet there are no direct options.
One option i will suggest is take Mayiladuthurai-Mysore Express/16231 on 7th April from Trichy to Bangalore city & from there on 8th Morning you can take Mysore-Sainagar Shirdi Express/16217 from Bangalore City to Hospet.You have about 2 hrs of buffer time in between at Bangalore to change over the trains.You can use that time to refresh yourself.

I you are a Foreign tourist there are 4 Sleeper class tickets available in Foreign tourist quota in 16231 you can book under that quota & for 16217 from Bangalore to Hospet plenty of tickets are available across classes Sleeper/3AC/2AC..

Sorry to write again, but how would I purchase one of the tourist quota tickets? Must I do it at the station?

I think you have to visit station as there is no option available in online booking for selecting foreign tourist quota.

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.
