thanks to all the good wishes the train entered chennai bang on time. now waiting for shatabdi gates to open. will continue trip report in train blog of 12027 chennai bangalore shatabdi, but before signing off, I ll summarize the train-
all in all a utility train.
plenty of passengers get down and board at bbs. so even if u rbin waiting, u may get berths at bbs

punctuality. ..9/10(runs late but has lot ofbslack before chennai so reaches right time)
crowd...excess in sleepers, ac is fine
wl and local pax...none in ac, plenty in sl pantry, u ll starve...better to carry packed food. hardly halts so tough to get at stations as well
cleanliness. ..3/10 (very dirty coach and toilets, even on board cleaning at all)
wl clearance...if u r in rlgn, may god save u...hardly any clearance. better to bookbfrom barsoi and change bp
so, any member who has further queries may pvt me. all in all a nice train. thanka for joining me. join u in chennai bangalore shatabdi...adios
