If you want to travel with the "CLASS" then its 12028, if you want to travel with the "MASS" then its 12610, This tip not only relates to availability and booking of tickets, but also Availability of space in the train. Courtesy its 17 halts, there's never a dull moment on board the 12610 (especially if you are one of those who don't sleep).
* Tickets during non-peak seasons are available as late as 2 days prior to date of Journey, but even otherwise it doesn't make much of a difference. This train has about 6-8 reserved 2S coaches regularly, occasionally goes upto 10 during weekends and peak season/holidays etc.
This has TV also in some of general coaches
Very comprehensive and useful tips.Thanks a lot
Yes, that is a recent initiative by SWR, they have tried implementing it in quite a few trains
Tippu and Chamundi express and its RSA has TV's
SWR has installed TVs in 12028,12607 and 12609.
Instead of doing so much just book a ticket in Sanghamitra and no matter how high RSWL ur ticket will get confirmed. And also Sanghamitra remains empty between Bengaluru-Chennai stretch.
Go post this in Sanghamitra's Travel tips
Then why mention it here? My Tip is crystal clear, it pertains to only 12610 and passengers who prefer 2S travel!
I am just suggesting an alternative to 12610 2s travel to Just book in Sleeper of Sanghamitra and travel comfortably
I am not sure if the 3 words- SLEEPER, SANGHAMITRA AND COMFORT can ever be mentioned together. :)
Sir it's between Bengaluru-Chennai so not much crowd MAS-DNR only it gets crowded
Lets show this gentleman some pics of Sanghamitra SL between Bangalore and Chennai !!! :D lol
I've traveled 4 times in this train. Once end to end, twice to MAS and once to KPD. The train acquires cult status even before it arrives at BNC. That's how bad it is.
@KJM-> if you are in the last 2 compartments of this train ( unreserved ones ) ..make sure that when getting down at KJM at pf #3 , these dont come on platform and people have to deboard on the ground level itself ..be careful !!!
Not useful dude!!! It comes on PF4,which is bigger than PF3....
dude , this tip was given when i was travelling in it ...
