This tip is regarding occupancy in SL coach.
12663 is no different from 12841 in terms of occupancy.
Not advisable to book in SL if traveling with your family in ANY TRAIN under MAS-HWH section.
The people boarding in your coach will deboard only at MS, don't misjudge by looking at the bi-weekly tag :P

Such TTE's Should Immediately Be Suspended.... As Per Law, UR/WL Pax Can't Board Reserved Compartments. If The TTE Can't Control Them, They Are Not Fit For Job

Punctuality and cleanliness just top class in this and slip portion 58013/14 train, and treated as an important night time VIP train in SER region in both up and down direction. Though it is just a passenger train all services in 3A and SL are remarkable.

Shining Scarlet red coloured Chennai Rajdhani is one of the few south-North connecting train which runs with excellent punctuality.This Lallaguda Wap-7 hauled Rajdhani is given a very priority by IR.From Chennai to Vijayawada Jn,it runs non-Stop for 431km touching 120+kmph and reaches Vijayawada 5-20 minutes early in general.Even in SCR it is given great respect and from Vijayawada to Warangal it runs for abt 200km non-stop touching 115+Kmph and makes no delay in reaching warangal.From warangal to Nagpur it gathers some delay because the line will be always in some or the other repair or renual.It runs with speeds touching 120 in this zone and reaches Nagpur by a late of 10-25 minutes.From Nagpur to Bhopal it runs like a Superfast train but not like Rajdhani because of heavy train traffic in that Strech.It has to stop in 2-3 unscheduled halts for signal Clearances.It reaches Bhopal maintaining same delay.From Bhopal to...
Jhansi it runs with good speed touching 120+Kmph and covers the delay in the night as there won't be much traffic.Jhansi to Gwalior is a busy zone with many EMU and Passenger Trains to New Delhi,PalwalAgra,Ghaziabad, Faridabad... etc.So there will be some delay of 5-15minuttes delay on reaching Gwalior.Gwalior to Agra has some position but somehow it Covers 5-10 minutes delay and arrives Agra 5-15 minutes late.From Agra to Nizamuddin it doesn't make much change in delay and reaches Nizamuddin maintaining same delay of 5-20minutes.
Mps of 130kmph is observed in Agra-Nizamuddin,chennai-vijayawada zones

Good train for GIMB Passengers to NGP/R/SBP/BBS.
A. Is a weekly train with OK timings at Ahemdabad.
B.Tickets for Gandhidham/Vadodara/Surat passengers to Nagpur/Raipur/Sambalpur / Bhubaneshwar are NOT easily avaliable. Book them 4 month in advance.
Car not avaliable (However E-Catering avaliable at Nandurbar and Sambalpur).
D.Bad timings at Raipur (After Speedup in next TAAG it may be speeded up to reach Raipur by 0100 HRS)
A. Fastest connection between Surat-Bhubaneshwar
B.Cleanliness is just superb and Coaches are also newly made.
C.Rush of unreserved passengers is less in SL.
D.In return direction it covers a good amount of delay. (However 12993 reaches its destination delayed by 1.5 HRS).
A.Carry your own food as on board vendors are also less
B. Book tickets 4 months in advance as RAC Clarence is also difficult in this train (Personal Experience)
C. Passengers could use E-Catering(served at Nandurbar)
D. Reaches its destination (as 12993) with a delay of 1.5 HRS. Return train is little bit good and a good delay coverer.
Thank you.
