If anybody wants to go Bangalore(K.R Puram,Yesvantpur) from Chennai at last minute don't worry u can purchase unreserved ticket and board this train one hour before the departure time, in general compartment u will easily get a seat. Also mobile charging point available in general compartment also. This was my favorite day train to reach Bangalore from Chennai.Even last week i travelled in this train from Chennai to Bangalore(K.R puram).

Sir this tip is 2yrs old and now my IQ has improved for some level and yes we shld be alert and get-down at our respective station. The reason for this tip is when I travelled before posting this tip train reached ypr before time and no tea vendors screaming or arrival and departure announcements were there, for gods sake I got up before train left ypr for mas, ypr was jus like a normal 2pf stations very quite that day as soon as i got down train started to move towards mas and some one pulled chain and about 100's of passenger got down and train left after 10mins, As I was waiting for NED-SBC express to reach MWM.

"Catering Available"
Let me tell you what that means for this train. Meaning of catering in this train is limited to orders of dinner and breakfast. Besides these two times, do not expect ANYTHING on board. Not even a water bottle.

I deeply recommend the passengers to have FULL SNACKS at JOLARPETAI Jn... because after that they will get VERY GOOD QUALITY FOOD at UBL... If LUCK is in your favour at Platform 01, there are 2 very good restaurants

Be alert at KJM station. When I travelled, there was no coach position displayed, neither there was any announcement of the train!!!!
There is veg/egg/chicken biryani sold in between KJM-YPR. There are vendors at YPR as well. Good 'e catering' options availble at YPR (dinner) & UBL (breakfast). at YPR one can get food served from KFC, Dominos & other vendors for thali etc..I ordered a a veg thali, every food item was warm, both vegs & daal were good in taste. Gulamjamun was delicious. Chapati was made from maida. Sufficient qtty of rice, 3 chapatis. The cost of thali was 155 (all inclusive). At UBL, I ordered Idli wada from e catering. It was good (better in taste & qtty than
what you get from platform vendor). It had 4 idlis, 1 wada, chutney & Sambar for Rs 40 (totally worth it!). UBL has good options in breakfast. Train mostly reaches before time @ Hubli South & Hubali. Vendors get in @ Hubli South only.
Not to mention about the Braganza Ghats & Dudhsagar!!!! If you get a berth on left side, you will get a good close-up view of the Dudhsagar Falls. (Just Ask Vendors when the Dudhsagar will come & get ready to capture it). If you want to capture it from the door, you should catch the door well in advance, else most of the travellers know about this falls & all the doors will be packed. If you are seating on right side of the train, you will get the remote view of the falls as train negotiates the curve just after dudhsagar falls.

Never Get Frantic for capturing a scene while moving in train...
and that too at Door.... someone slips or pushes resulting damage to us....
Just enjoy the scene as long as our eyes catch....
Be Safe while travelling...
