And the usual Kerala style snacks and Biriyanis which I couldn't try.

Beware of vendors especially selling fruits . They keep rotten fruits along with good ones and they not allow you to select fruits from their basket .
If you stop them and not buy from them , then they will abuse you very roughly full of slangs .
Please refrain from buying from them .

Had a similar experience. But,being a South Indian, I didn't had the 'privilege' of understanding the 'chaste' Hindi abuses. I used to give this tip whoever is visiting BSB from our parts.

How does this relate to 'Train Trip'...
May be true that on the way it is possible, or at some location.
Please elborate your views clearly for users benefit. And clear the confusion.
Please edit / post in either Station Tip ...

Sir this tip is 2yrs old and now my IQ has improved for some level and yes we shld be alert and get-down at our respective station. The reason for this tip is when I travelled before posting this tip train reached ypr before time and no tea vendors screaming or arrival and departure announcements were there, for gods sake I got up before train left ypr for mas, ypr was jus like a normal 2pf stations very quite that day as soon as i got down train started to move towards mas and some one pulled chain and about 100's of passenger got down and train left after 10mins, As I was waiting for NED-SBC express to reach MWM.
