Sleeper Class experience today was horrendous. S2 was packed with unskilled workmen travelling to Kerala and by noon they had all spread plastic sheets on the floors and were sleeping everywhere. It was impossible to get up for lack of space, fear of theft and fear of seat being taken. The Ticket Checkers were accepting bribes to let these people remain and the upper berths had 2, sometimes 3 people. There was no power in my coach so after sundown it was pitch black with no fans and people lying all over the place.

1. If you are booking from SCL/BPB/NHLG/LMG upto MLDT, almost any WL will Cnf. Lots of Tkts will be up for grabs in Current Booking in this sector.
A perfect overnight Service from Silchar towards Assam & North Bengal.
But if bookings for HWH & beyond the chances of getting CNF tkts drastically falls.
2. Pax boarding from NCB/NJP/KNE/MLDT/HWH/KGP

for Kerala destinations must book in GNWL from KOJ avoiding RLWL. RLWL very limited seats & chances of managing a RAC is also extremely negligible.

Posting this,after observing this train many times.try avoiding booking in SL(better dont even think of it)bcz many ppl who are migrating(from or to)from eastern parts(i mean to say construction workers,etc)often travel in SL too(end to end),they occupy upto brim.only book in AC class(even if choose to travel end to end or to in between)

I ve seen this train thrice at thrissur!
Sleepers looked way horrible than any generals I had ever seen..
NEVER BOOK SLEEPERS ON THESE TRAINS FROM KERALA TO WEST BENGAL AND NORTHEAST

Avoid B4 (guess it was made in 98) as it is close to SL one side of the path to and toilets are always occupied by SL or UR people.
As the train crosses Andhra in daytime pathways near toilets get packed with UR people and some sneak in and sit in berths.
Beddings were good.can't expect more in trains in this region. But pillow size is too small...good for kids.
AC

was maintained well, two power points one each on either side are available.
Overall it is ok and not as dirty as some other trains in this region.
Hard to see onboard cleaning staff.
Food was served by some caterers named Food on Wheels or so. Veg meals was 125/-.

There is no coach number in this train. No destinations boards on many of the coaches and are pretty old.. This train is not tidy. On the other hand 12515 is extremely clean.. Even though iri says they have RSA.. They don't have..
