For passengers planning to travel from cbe to sbc (especially in CC class): If the status is showing waiting list,then book from tcr and boarding point can be changed online. Tcr falls under gn quota,so higher chances of availability.

The price difference is too much compared to booking from CBE so if available book from CBE if WL from TCR

Of course, but from what I've seen, cbe just has a handful of seats under its quota (PGT even worse), but TCR has plenty of seats, hence the tip. I still feel, paying those extra bucks is better than travelling by bus...

Was it from TCR to SBC or CBE to SBC? And yes, with GNWL, such confirmations do happen.

Yeah maybe. Was 12678 punctual then? Now-a-days, It rarely comes on-time. Usually arrives SBC with a 30-min delay on an average.

Have observed many times that this train runs with AC 3 Tier(3A) coaches instead of AC Chair Car coaches.Dont know how CC seats are allotted in 3A

Fastest connectivity to bangalore.Good enough pantry.Current reservation / onsite reservation available by contacting TTE most of the time.After Tcr most of this gets exhausted.CBE has a quota.Sundays are the peak days for the train both ways.WL very difficult to clear.Though train runs late reaches ahead of time most of the time at BANGALORE.

For the past few days, I've observed that the two rakes of this train have opposite coach arrangement. So, travellers (especially at Intermediate stations and D1, D2, C1, C2), please check for coach arrangement before boarding. I have posted it in blog too.

i have experienced it too, thankfully it happened in SA which has a decent halt duration so was able to manage.
This train is a foodie's delight and has one of the best pantry among ICEs in South.
Breakfast(post 6AM):
Pongal-Wada, Idly-Wada combination for Rs.30 from 6AM
Masala Dosa(after Carmelaram)
Bread Omlette.
All
...
more...
through the day:
Cutlet, Udina(ulundhu) vada, parupu vada, pazham pori(famous Kochi snack), vazhakai and milagai (chilli)bhajji, cardamom tea, coffee, MRP items like biscuits,soft drinks.
Lunch:
Order taken before ED by pantry staff. Meals available for lunch but taste is not good, Veg Biriyani and Chicken Biriyani are loaded at ED and delivered by pantry staff at TUP if ordered before.
Evening Snacks:
Pazham pori(after PGT), vada etc...
Taste is very good and price is also cheap.

Lot of twists and turns in the route in SWR section, specially after you cross sivadi. Good for photos.

really an excellent train for RF/General travel,as it passes through palghat nd runs MPS most of the time post joining SRR-CBE line till salem,from salem till darmapuri(be on right side) doorplating would be my best suggestion as it climbs over deccan plateau which offers great views :) overall the crowd was decent,nd most of them get in from aluva and get down at CBE,from there second set of crowd joins till SBC

Avoid D1 coach as it is disconnected from rest of the train, i mean there is no vestible to connect with the rst of the train.
