This train is officially known as Hyderbad Kochuveli Express and at many stations outside Kerala it's announced in the similar way. But this train runs till TVC and will skip KCVL

If you travel in non- AC classes it will be a very tough time as it is very hot and passengers with unreserved tickets occupy our seats. We cannot lie down or move out easily. At night time only we can lie or do anything. But in AC class, only the reserved passengers travel and AC is there to protect us from the scorching heat.

If you can wait till 10:45 PM for dinner,when the train reaches Gudur, you can have hot dosas with ground nut chutney at PF 1 catering stall(where usually this train arrives ). The taste is really good..

Try to avoid travelling by this train during the months of November-January as the train will be full of sabarimala pilgrims from Hyderabad and near by areas as this is the only train. The bookings generally get over and reach to a waitlist of upto 400 on the day of opening itself (Sleeper Class). Because of this, the cleanliness of the train is badly affected.

Yes, but you wont see many wait listed passengers travelling in sleeper compartments during normal days, where as during this season, the compartments would be occupied by many waitlisted passengers with people(most of them pilgrims) sleeping on the floor also!!!!

If you are not able to get tickets from Coimbatore Jn for this train, try from Palakkad junction which is the previous stop. This falls under GNWL (only if u book till Guntur Jn). Same tip can be followed during tatkal booking also. Tatkal from Coimbatore will only be 43 in sleeper class where as from palakkad it will be around 238.
Note: If u dont book tickets till Guntur Junction from Palakkad, it will come under PQWL which is difficult to get confirm. In that case u can book from Coimbatore otself which falls under RLWL.

Thats the mistake you did of putting boarding point as CBE. You should have got it changed later.

Now changing the BP while booking itself wont affect the quota.

For Renigunta and Tirupati Stations:
Passengers booking/boarding from these stations towards CBE/TVC, Please be careful in choosing the date of travel as the train leaves these stations at 00:05 and 00:35 hours respectively. eg. If u reach the station on 23rd night at 11:30 PM to board the train, Pl book for the 24th. -By personal experience.

This train gets excellent cleaning by the staff at Erode station. This is extremely useful as by this time the train wash room start to get extremely foul smell.
Was happy to see nice cleaning of floors too and spraying. Really a good trip by 20 Apr Sabari...

Update on pantry services-
1) I ordered bread omelette as breakfast. The omelette was too bland.
2) there was one pantry guy who was over smart. He was serving Banana fry per plate with 3 piece for Rs. 30. I said I need only 2 piece. He said we don't serve less than one plate. I thus took this snacks. Just five minutes after another pantry guy came with same snack who was so courteous and was serving even per piece for Rs. 10.
I
...
more...
understood it all depends on the person who does job. Banana fry was nice n tasty.
So ask what u want as they should serve even lesser quantities.
3) Excellent service mentality in overall by Meals On Wheels pantry guys.

Passengers on 3AC please carry a towel if you are used to use it often. They have now stopped providing towels ( useful for wiping after face wash etc); especially for ladies.

Just an addition. They are providing towels only on request from passengers. When I casually enquired about towel, the attender gave me.
