I am travelling on Chennai Express #12163 this evening. It leaves from DADAR Terminus. I am taking my pet cat along on this journey and I wanted to know where I check her in as luggage? In Dadar or at CST? I ask because I had to go to CST to put in a request for a coupe allocation, and I forgot to ask them where I needed to do the luggage check in.
Any help that you guys can give me will be much appreciated!

Yes it has to been done from Dadar. For those who read this post later, the Cloak Room at Dadar Terminus is where the guys who do this sit.
You have to show them your ticket, so take a print-out as that room is tiny and crowded and you don't want to hand across your phone or tablet.
They charged me Rs.245
for a luggage slip for my cat (even though I am taking her with me in 1st AC). This luggage slip is super important, as you will need to show it to the cops at the security scan, as well as the TTE.
The penalty for not having the luggage slip is 6 times the luggage rate so 245x6 !
My train departed at 20:30, and I got to the cloak room at 19:00. Unfortunately I forgot to ask the how late they're open, but we know they're open till 19:00 hours at least.
Hope that helps!

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . 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,...

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far.
