The train route between Shimoga and Talguppa is VERY beautiful, where the train passes through the forest with an occassional village in between. If you take this journey in the monsoon season, even better. Look at the attached pics. This train runs pretty much empty between Shimoga & Talguppa, so you may get yourself a nice window seat (even in general/unreserved compartment) and enjoy the nature with cool wind on your face.

Now a days cleanliness goes into a toss, not sure about PM quality at YPR station. Despite YPR is originating station one can't use toilets from the starting station because of foul smell
Lot of unreserved passengers stand near toilets and sit on the floor which makes safety issues for lady travellers
This tip is for SL class

When rake cleanliness, maintenance and availability of proper catering is the topic of discussion, three trains of Northern Railways, Delhi division are significantly aweful:
14003/04 NDLS-MLDT-NDLS Exp
22403/04 NDLS-PDY-NDLS Exp
14035/36 Dhauladhar Exp
.
Salient
...
more...
features of these trains (applies mostly to sleeper class):
1) Availability of catering is dubious. Though Dhauladhar doesn't need it but absence of catering in NDLS-PDY is a torcher. Similarly though NDLS-MLDT claims to have catering, I, at times found it missing. Plan accordingly. Bring your own food.
2) Toilets. HORRIBLE. No cleanliness, nothing. (Now I can't even say bring your own toilet)
3) Designation of coach numbers is not proper. The coach that says 'S5' may not be 'S5'. The coach on which the chart of S5 is stuck is S5. Frustration inducing negligence at its apex, isn't it?
4) Rakes are extremely dirty and ill-maintained.
5) Charging points: Well after reading point 1 through point 4, you're intelligent enough to predict. If you get one, you're one of the lucky chosen ones.
