Yesterday a sudden trip to TPJ. Went by Vaigai. To my luck, got reserved seat after chart preparation.
Doubling – CGL to KGZ single track only. Lines are ready to rock. Inspection pending, I think. KGZ to VM fully doubled. VM to TVNL works going on. TVNL to VRI tracks ready; inspection pending. VRI to ALU works going on. ALU to VLDE already doubled. VLDE to GOC works going. GOC to TPJ already doubled.

The AC CC coaches in this train doesn't have any temperature control system.
Sometimes the temperature may go as low as 16 degrees and you have to shut the AC vent manually.
The twist here is some of the ac vents are already broken that you cant close them.

Not only Vaigai, all the day trains like Pallavan , Chendur usually arrive late to CGL and TBM due to the electrification and doubling works.

You have a pantry car in this train. You can have South Indian foods like Idly, Dosa, Pongal, Vada and Rava Kesari. Chappathi, Bread Omelette and Veg Cutlet are also available. Food tastes good and sold at IRCTC prices. Other mini items like Coffee, Tea, Masala milk, snacks like chips, biscuits and Cold drinks are also sold.

This train has a composite coach ( Pantry Car + Second Sitting). It is numbered as PS1. The travel in this coach is horrible as the heat generated from the Pantry is felt throughout the coach especially the seats close to the cooking area ( Seat numbers: 37-60). It is better to rebook the seats if one gets seat allotted in this particular coach. The same problem is felt in 12605/06 Pallavan Express also.

The Govt is advising "Private entrepreneurs' always to be 'Pro poor' Pro society... But look what Govt itself is doing :
1-Not allotting Full Space of Coach to Panry but Sucking "Operator"
2-Not letting go the space but put 'Second Class' passengers to disadvantage... "Sucking Passengers"
3-Not bothered about Laws that 'This amounts to Deficiency in Service Delivery" and is contempt of Law,
...
more...
if at all Consumer Laws apply to IR...
4-What a shame : 1AC, 2AC, 3AC are the only Humans Passengers to be taken care of, and Sitting Class are Cattles???
-------------------------------------------
I think this is FIT CASE FOR CONSUMER COURT FIGHT AGAINST IR...

Almost all pantry cars are filthy with cockroaches roaming freely, there is no need for pantry cars in most of the trains as most of the food & snacks are loaded at select station en route, Quality is also better.

Fully agree. Inspite of all these discomforts there is a huge trunk box which stores biscuits, chips, etc is kept near the middle door of the coach which blocks the passage to a considerable extent and moreover one side of the door is always kept closed.

Local Admins can form a group and take up the matter in consumer court against IR with demand for compensation, and discrimination.
