This train is becoming very poor in maintaining timings in the recent past and is being dis-respected in all the reasons.. 15th January was bad experience with delay of 2 hours when it reached coimbatore junction. This train is given less importance in all the divisions it crosses. Can the authorities regularise the timing and give due importance to this train as this is also express train. This is being overtaken, parked or ignored mostly which causes delay. The number of stopping between Trivandrum to Trichur is also very high. In the next budget atleast all these corrections to be done and ensure that this train is given due respect to run on time.

If you're traveling with reservation by Sleeper class on this train beyond TRVL(towards TVC), you are advised to book an Upper Berth or Side Upper Berth(if you have the choice), or climb on to any vacant UB or SU berth, and stay there till your destination, as there is hardly enough space to sit on the Lower/Side Lower Berths beyond TRVL due to the number of unreserved passengers traveling on the section.

For those who are booking from ERN (RLGN) quota, Book your ticket from PVRD (2 stations before ERN) and boarding point as ERN. As PVRD it comes under GNWL.

Carry an Old Newspaper when travelling in this route as it usually rains and berths may be wet when you board the train

Please see how CC description is jumbled up... Will someone be kind to take up with #Moderator for 'expanding' space between two lines' ? This was previously also notified for other train's CC. But so far situation has remained same...
