As per after the introduction of new LHB coaches in 12626/25 Kerala Express the facilities on board have really improved. Toilets of 3A. Are equipped with mat finish. so to provide stability while in use. Biotoilets enfitted. Fragrant Liquid soaps, Stainless steel comod and sink. Mirror is really attractive.

1-Will IR play this trick with passengers who book 2AC are given 3AC?
2-Passengers can claim difference of fare ?
3-Deficiency in service: enables passengers to claims 'compensation' as well ?

This happens due to shortage of 2 AC coach in TVC Division. A common site for this train. I know this well since I can see the train passing by in front of ma office.

1. Answer is YES bcoz the coaches sent for POH are not returned back to TVC Div. So they are forced to add an additional 3AC coach available at KCVL. The train is shunted at KCVL.
2. Passengers can avail the Diff in fare
3. Can apply for compensation. but so far I have not come across such

its not about changing the opinion or Signals or such... its the fact of Kerala express. The coaches sent for POH are not returned back by TN. So the TVC Div is forced to utilize whatever they have. 428 coaches sent for POH.. out of that only 210 coaches were returned back...
And I can say this 100% coz I see the rakes daily except Sundays,

But netra gets both the 2AC man... its not a common site.. but for kerala its becoming almost common. Shunting of Kerala takes place in KCVL and for Netra at TVC. So they seldom remove the 2AC. but For kerala, daily coach interchanging is common.. Shunters are given instruction at KCVL to operate only on Kerala express from 9:10 am till 1130 am for kerala express...
Some times whn 2Ac is missing Kerala express will be taken to TVC only at 11:30 am...
Average time departure of the Kerala express is around 11:30

Does this issue still persists?? I have booked in 2a for journey in may ( 12626, NDLS-TVC). Hope this issue is sorted out!.
One such incident happened with my father n brother, maybe a deacde back. They had tickets for 2a,but no coach NDLS-TVC. finally they had to travel in general upto jhansi, then were given 3a berths.
In one of my trip, train didn't have pantry car. Passengers where literally running for food n water at major stoppages.

Normally when u book via Eticket , u cant be upgraded to next higher class...for ex., u might have booked a 3AC , but u will be seen a SL instead due to repair or so...but if u want to upgrade to 2AC or 1AC even though if there is vacant in those classes , u cant in case of ETicket..In case of PRS Tickets u can be upgraded next to higher class for want of accommodation..the option left with those Eticket holders are they can get the LCC certificate from TTE and apply for refunds..that too via TDR filing through online only..PRS ticket holders can get the refund via at any reservation counters.....Jai Ho PRS..

I think the problem is with our public who lack sense of cleanliness. They eat peanuts and drop the shells right where they are sitting, children are never taught to flush,spitting pan masala in the washbasin clogging the pipes etc. There are many long distance trains in different parts of the world and I can tell you most of them are kept very clean. First illegal entry should be stopped in reserved coaches. I think even PRS waitlisted tickets should automatically cancel once the charting has been done. It wont solve the problem but we should make a start somewhere.

IR can only do what it can. I have seen passengers blow their nose in the sheets,wipe shoes with their towel,wipe greasy(oily) hands in the sheets etc. No amount of washing will remove the stains. Am sorry to say we Indians are one of the dirtiest people around.Even Sub-saharan Africa is cleaner. Am sure I will get get lot of brickbats but I like to call spade a spade. With the amount of money we pay for our tickets IR provides us more than enough(regarding berths,blankets etc). Actually IR is running a charitable service(social responsibility) in my opinion.

ok then lets agree on thing. IR should stop providing bedding in AC coaches and reduce ticket price accordingly. peoples will manage the things accordingly by their own. then there will be on complaints like this. nd make fine costing 4 times the ticket cost one has if he is cought siptting or dirtying coaches. but at the same time, IR must make such arrangement to stop begger, various seller from entering into train, who do not have any ticket thus cannot be fined.

Rush at TML is common bro iy will take minimum 2hrs maximum is about 12hrs sometimes a day. Take darshan in Saturday. Because it is the favourite day of LORD SRIVENKATESWARA swamy. Then on sunday morning you may go to SRISAILAM. Take darshan at SRISAILAM on MONDAY. Because is the favourite day of LORD SIVA.

Thanks to both of my friends. I just found a helpline number 1800 425 4141 set up by TTD and they confirmed that both Alipiri and Srivari Mattu are steps ie Stairs. So Idea totally dropped as I have my parents with me. We will go by bus to tirumala. Now it's all about the darshan and accommodation which still needs to be plan.

Remember one thing. For Srisalam you have to plan carefully if coming in evening Buses. Srisailam have 2 Check posts. One is in KRNT/BZA Road side and one is SC/MBNR Side. Both check posts will be closed from 21.00 pm to 5 AM due to Animals especially Tiger Movement at night. so no buses/Taxis any thing will be not allowed at that time. From SC side 2 Buses have permission to come to SSLM and both will start at 22.00 PM from SC and reach Srisailam by 2.30/3AM in Morning. i found so many times Peacock,Deers,Byson etc animals in that road. 3/4 times i saw Tigers also. Once a Tiger stopped my bus for 2 Hrs as it is eating a Deer on the Road. Drivers are not permitted to on the Lights or Horn when animals are on the road by forest Department. They must wait until they clear the...

way by themselves. currently there are 45-50 Tigers in both ways of srisailam (BZA/KRT side and SC/MBNR side). so you have a good chance to see Tiger if you come by SC side.

Visiting Places in Srisailam
1. Sakshi Ganapati - This small shrine located about 3 km from Srisailam and frequented by pilgrims since ancient times. The traditional belief is that the Ganapathi in this temple keeps regular account of all the pilgrims to tender ‘Sakshyam’ (evidence) of their visit to this Kshetram and is named as Sakshi Ganapathi. The sculpture of this deity is exquisitely made holding a book in the left hand and ‘Kalam’ (pen) in the right hand in such a way as noting down the names of devotee.
2.Hathakaeswaram:- This picturesque
...

spot is on the way to Srisailam of above 5 km away in a serine atmosphere. According to the tradition at this place God Siva appeared to a potter devotee in Atika (piece of Pot) and hence named as Atikeswaram and later it became Hatakeswaram. There is a temple dedicated to Sri Hatakeswara Swamy and is a stone structure datable to 11th-13th Centuries A.D.
3.Phaladhara Pancha Dhara:- This most beautiful scene spot is located about 4 km from Srisailam. Tradition records that Bhagavan Adisankara performed penance at this place and composed the famous ‘Sivanandalahari’ here. This spot is in a narrow valley approached by a flight of steps where subterranean streams of pure water with musical sounds reverberating the surroundings. These streams are known as ‘Phaladhara-Panchadhara’ and these signify their origin from the fore head of God Siva, the Phaladhara (Phala=fore head, dhara=stream) and denotes the five aspects of Siva, the Panchadhara (Pancha=five, dhara=stream). The water from this stream flows at all seasons uninterruptedly.
4.Sikhareswaram :- This most sacred spot is located at about 8 km. from the main temple at a height of 2830 feet above the mean sea level. It is the highest peak of Srisailam. The Skanda Purana proclaines that a mere glance of this Sikharam frees the human soul from the fitters of re-birth – “Srisaila Sikharam Drustva Punarjanma Na Vidyathe”. – There is a temple dedicated to Sri Veera Shikara Swamy and locally known as Sikhareswara Swamy. This temple in as ancient stone structure and historically the Reddi Kings have constructed a flight of steps to this in the year 1398 AD and also a Pushkarini (Tank) at this place. This place gives a panoramic view of the entire temple of Srisailam including the meandering river Krishna.

Here is a list of trains from Tirupati to Vellore /search/837/0/6621 One train available daily at 13.50, 2 trains available only on Saturday I.e., tomorrow. Check it. Private bus might be available from Tirupati to Vellore. Enquire once in the place where private buses stay i.e., opposite bus stand near Srinivasam pilgrimage complex. Even if you don't get a private bus or train suitable to you. You can go to Chittoor by bus, from Chittoor there will be number of bus services to Vellore. In Vellore new bus stand itself you can get bus towards Golden temple.

What you expect from a long distance train having a general compartment.. morning trains from delhi like Samta,Hirakund,Mangla,Jhelum,Kerela, and evening trains like Goa,Mahakaushal,SK are always heavily packed.
