Train Tip
Yesterday (23:32)   12201/Mumbai LTT - Kochuveli Garib Rath Express

Amazing train for trip between Mumbai and Udupi/Mangalore. Very few halts. The train got delayed in Karwar by almost 1.5 hrs. It covered Karwar and Udupi within 2 hours and we reached Udupi with only 30 minutes delay. I slept in Upper berth and didn't feel a single jerk, slept through the journey like a baby. It feels congested but for sleeping purposes, this is great train.

Overall Tips..

1. It don't have pf entry, you have to take FOB to reach the platform
2. Shops were opened outside 24×7

3. It has sleeper, upper class and general waiting room.. no one is asking for entry or tickets at upper class waiting room.. its very small only 5-6 long chairs, 2 working ACs.. too much mosquito 🦟 and unclean washroom..
As i deboarded at 3 am ... I went outside had some caffeine via sting... Water.. and then i came to upper class waiting room, its empty only 2-3 pax... I slept on seat, mosquitoes were doing their job then i closed the door and washroom and windows.. and packed my self in my towel so that mosquito need some hardwork now, after few minutes room started getting chilled .. perfect 2 hours nap for next journey...
4. Station has few options of vendors for eating stuff but if u r deboarding here prefer to go outside and you will get some more options also litti chokha available at 30rs for 4..
5. Auto rickshaw available outside 24×7
If your going to BRBCL or NTPC side you can get autos after 3-4 am for that route else you have to do break journey..
Overall i rate this station as 3.5/5

Overall Tip...
I boarded from Puri to Dehri on Sone in 2S
It was my longest 2S journey as tickets were only available in this class
1. Charging sockets available in 2S on both
sides, 2 on each side..
2. Toilets were neat and clean till evening but after Hijli or say from entering in bengal, unreserved tickets or no tickets passenger made the 2S as hell with their overloaded luggages.. blocked the gates..
3. Pantry Food is available however over charging is common as even pantry guys show their anger in this class as majority of them are from lower class or say labour class..
80rs for egg 🥚 Biryani that too, tasteless... Not so good but i don't found another option as Hijli has not much food options plus my coach was in last..
4. Tickets were checked in each zone... In ECR after Gomo some arguments with UTS pax who was trying to fool TTE by showing same tickets twice for double people.. that so called labour class UTS pax was acting like that railway owe him and he has power to travel like this.. however Imo ppl like these are curse to nation, in the name of garibi they block path for real garibs.. well later RPF handle him, he was forced to debaord at next station when next station came... He deny and then pay the fine..
5. Speed was 110 ... But in night in ECR we blow to 130 mps
However we were mostly ontime ... Was little bit delay after Hijli but still we maintain the TT due to slack..
Overall i rate this train as 3/5

If your coach is having passengers going to deboard at Adra, you will get breakfast only after departing Adra. It's ridiculous. I lodged a complaint today and staffs apologized.

Overall Tip
So in my whole trip series
This place was best
I came here in night by Jaganath Mail as i didn't get any better place for sleep
So i thought going
to puri might help me atleast i can sleep here as i know last time in 2011 i came here station has better amenities...
So i booked UTS ticket went to 2S and reached PURI
I was so tired of continuous 25 hours of travel without having proper meal and rest . . .. thereby i was looking for waiting room and TTEs were checking tickets i told him that "mujhe neend aa rhi h waiting room btao.. ticket subha check kr lena" 😹
He said ticket dikhao phle mene uts khola aur ticket dikhaya fir bola ki udhar h waiting room.. then i went in waiting room it was empty, peaceful with cool temp.. no smell no garbages.. neat and clean.. slept on marble made sitting area and directly waked up at around 8-9 am..
So here are few things to tell u all... Specially for solo travelers
1. IRCTC Food Track available and it was open in Night as well, however food are limited in nights.. and outside station few shops were opened i didn't went to main road but shops were open as it can be easily visible from the exit/entrance
2. Waiting Rooms available and was in very Good Condition... Washrooms were neat and clean .. even in morning i at 9 am after used by lots of people still it was neat and clean...
As in evwry 6 hours they came for cleaning
So waiting rooms are best, dont know about retiring room but booking was closed online so no idea about that.. however hotels in the town is available at good rates being religious tourist city u can find hotels of any budget
3. Autos/E-Rickshaw available outside station and also govt bus also available for going to beach and Temple.. fare for beach was 5 rs only.. i have attached the Bus timing pic.. however for beach auto takes Rs 20 (i m talking about Golden Beach)
4. It is well known tourism based city which has most famous temple under char dham.. everyone knows that, apart of it there are many places related to Religion and Historical also bio diversity..
However i must say you must visit Golden Beach which is under India's Top 10 Cleanest & Finest Beaches.. feels like goa with no liquor... But for family its best, no crowd at all entry fees rs 20 and for bath entry fee rs 50..
It is covered and has entry / exit points . .. i have attached pics of beach
It has life guard available who are here to safeguard you for any issue in sea water
There are showers available here seperate for men & women and also changing rooms...
This was best thing 😌
Bath in Sea fresh my mood.. i had train at 11 am so i have to go early else i will spend 2-3 hours more here
A perfect Nap on sand 😴
5. Water vending machine available here and it works
6. Jaganath Temple Trust counter at entrance is available also with souvenir shopee
What i Dont like is that the platform height is very low, very difficult to sr citizen pax and divyangjans
So overall rating is 4.5/5
