ideal to pack food items from vasco / madgaon before boarding.By the time train reaches madgaon one gets only bread ommlete and sandwiches,vada pav and station where one can get decent food options is at hubli.

the entire sleeper class is hijacked by un reserved passengers on the run on 7th August from TVC to GHY.Surprised that even in SR there is no control on this.IN fact earlier all east bound trains from TN and Kerala have this problem in bth directions.

Railways can at the most ask them to go the gen coach where there is not an inch of space. And even if they do go, the moment train gets into another state, they come back to sleeper coaches. With only 2 gen coaches, it is simply insufficient for gen passengers.
The only solution is to have a daily train as against the current 3 trains running from kerala to GHY. It is not that advisable to travel in sleeper at least for the end to end journey in this sector.

It is running like these for years. TTE can't do anything, i doubt whether they come to check ticket. It will be fully packed and hardly he can come and check it.
But on other side, one should appreciate the reserved people, mainly migrant workers. They don't complain about unreserved and WL people. They happily share the seat and travel.

most of the unreserved coaches have a luggage rack which is so uncomfortable to occupy.Earlier coaches had a provision so that people could sit / sleep on them.Surprising that this has stopped.The coaches earlier could take in more loads which has reduced after the change and we have people standing / sleeping on the floors rather.

    -@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,...
