Has any member/admin travelled in this train recently? Are the in-coach TVs still present? (I mean the TVs that are there in the middle and not for every seat)

I traveled 2 weeks back and tv sets are not there.. looks like they are removed. Even in trains like lalbagh, ICE also dont have tv's now. not sure what is the reason, but this was a great entertainment, which we are missing now.

Guys any idea if there is a car parking facility available at HSRA? I need to leave my car and take 12677 and return after 2 days. How safe it is and how about parking charges?

There is a parking facility at HSRA but not sure if you can park your car there for 2 days. There is a huge 2 wheeler stand where I have often seen hundreds of bikes parked by daily commuters who park from morning to evening.

Can you please let me know what are the coaches with bus like seating arrangement (back to back seat instead of facing each other)? as I feel they are comfortable and one doesn't struggle to stretch the legs. Appreciate if we can get same information for Brindavan and SBC-MAS intercity express as well!! Thanks in advance !

I dont think all coaches are back to back. Yesterday I traveled in Lalbagh from chennai... As far as I observed D1 to D6 had back to back seats. D7, D8 had seats facing each other. dint observe other coaches.
