My Trip to SBC - MYS - SBC to attend relatives marriage in MYS at Sahukar Channai road, near TENT circle MYS
Started home after lunch by 1315 Hrs. took auto to rch stn. rchd station by 1340 Hrs. went directly to PF 8 where it arrives. Its counter part 12613 was already putup in PF 9 and waiting for signal
My train arrived by 1420 Hrs. my coach was CC with seat no. 50 WS on 3 seater. Coach was closed for cleaning. As usual. need to change
my seat to 12 Aisle, as group of friends traveling together wanted to sit on same row. one person got seat no. 12. Only D1 and D2 are reserved in 2s, rest are General.
The train started bang on time at 1500 Hrs. slowly cralwed till Nayandahalli and took speed. A/c was switched on the moment train started. cooling started after about 15 minutes. On top of our row fan was running. after sometime we felt too much cooling, and tried to switch off the fan, but unable to find the switch, it was covered by bottle holder, we thought it has been directly connected.. When TTE entered the coach, we told him that unable to switch off the fan, he told switch is just behind d bottle holder.
just chked 2s. coaches, D1 and D2. No UR or open tkt holders standing.. both reserved 2s coaches as filled about 90%. TTE not allowed any UR pax in D1 or 2. Though sunday and monday holiday ( 25 and 26 ) No idea Y TTE is not following the same either in Brindavan or lalbagh or express. where 2s packed like UR.
Reached MYA by 1600 Hrs. and MYS by 1725 Hrs. tried retiring room said it is full. Tried few hotels. all are full. One hotel person took me to another hotel, namely, Hotel Golden Comforts, Seebaiah Road, behind Dhanvanthri road D.Mohalla. I got double room @ Rs.800.00.
Refreshed and started for choutry located at Tent Circe at Saukhar Channaih road, to attend reception.. After dinner bk to hotel room by 2130, watched TV for some time and slept.
Got up by 5 AM and was ready by 5.30, just checked for the hotel person, he was still asleep. I rtnd room and just glanced TV program.. by 6 he gotup, and I vacated the room, and went to the choutry by auto.
After attending marriage, had breakfast and directly headed to MYS bus stand to catch my bus to SBC
Rchd bus stand by 0815 Hrs. chkd with time keeper, he said wait the bus will come. Til 0840 no sight of the bus. again asked the depot inspector, as I had reserved tkt. He said wait till 9 AM if that bus doesn't turn up, will arrange other bus. There were about 15 reserved pax my bus.. The bus didn't come.. so the depot inspected arranged another bus and asked us to get in. It is Volvo bus ( KSRTC)
The bus started by 9 AM speed was good. Stopped for refreshment at Maddur, had coffee, and rchd Mysore Road Satellite bus stand ay 12 Noon and came out took auto and rchd home by 1230.. wonderful ride in bus.. good speed, till KGI after which slowed down.
Thanks for reading

Nice report- Crowd is lesser in tippu these days after Malgudi started leaving at 13:20hrs from SBC- So after Basava the wait to tippu reduces- But sadly after Tippu the next Express is Chamundi after 3hrs 15 mins and it gets jam packed
also Tippu has very less stops
