In December 2016 and Jan 2017, I had travelled three times in this train with the family. Please note that the train coach position shown in this site for this train is wrong. The Train coach position is reverse order in this site. Kindly arrange to have this rectified immediately.

Take enough snacks/eatables from Madgaon since this train has a 10 minute halt there. After Madgaon, literally nothing edible is available onboard.

Last time(July 2013) when I traveled on this between MAO and Udupi lot of food was available. Goli Bhajji,Goa Bun,Upma,Samosa etc. Guess it has changed now.

If travelling from Mumbai to Kumta/Bhatkal/kundapura, better to book till udupi as it is GNWL and getting confirmed seats is almost easily possible and in case with the return , then book from Surathkal and mention your respective boarding station

If you have to travel unreserved in this train, the farthest station you can board from and get a comfortable seat is Surathkal. After Udupi, there is no chance of getting a seat in the General Compartments.This is only during the lean season and on weekdays. During the peak season, the train gets jampacked at Mangalore Junction itself. Avoid travelling unreserved at all costs. The journey will be horrible. Try to somehow get at least a RAC ticket in any of the reserved classes.

if you tavelling in this train from Udupi/UD to Mumbai CST/CSTM then dont book from UD to CSTM else you will get reservation in Pooled Quota/PQ. Book from Surathkal/SL, it is just 1 station before Udupi/UD. You will get benefit of GN quota.

It has to be explicit, else this is like asking ppl to let go available berths from UD and book from SL.

dear manoj ji, there is either WL or CNF tickets in PQ. my suggestion was to switct to GN quota when PQ from UD is running waiting list. Most of the time, Udupi/UD shows PQWL#30, while GN from Surathkal/SL is RAC#20 at same time.

"when PQ from UD is running waiting list" was missing in original post. I can understand, but others may not. They may ask - why spend extra money when berths from my station are available. Thanks for clarifying that this is only when PQ is under WL.

2A and 3A coaches are maintained superbly and have awesome cleanliness standards.
Sleeper coaches have average maintainance and decent cleanliness levels.
But the AC coaches are just top notch.

Even sleeper classes are comparatively good. One who usually travel in AC coaches can still travel in sleeper class in this train. Toilets are also clean.

The speed of this train is top notch. Brings even the TVC Rajdhani down to its knees at Bijoor or Senapura.
After Madgaon, goes on an overtaking spree and overtakes 10112 Konkan Kanya and 11004 Rajya Rani Express daily. Also some specials during the peak seasons.
Train is usually punctual these days.
Rarely waits for any crossings.
