Rush at TML is common bro iy will take minimum 2hrs maximum is about 12hrs sometimes a day. Take darshan in Saturday. Because it is the favourite day of LORD SRIVENKATESWARA swamy. Then on sunday morning you may go to SRISAILAM. Take darshan at SRISAILAM on MONDAY. Because is the favourite day of LORD SIVA.

Thanks to both of my friends. I just found a helpline number 1800 425 4141 set up by TTD and they confirmed that both Alipiri and Srivari Mattu are steps ie Stairs. So Idea totally dropped as I have my parents with me. We will go by bus to tirumala. Now it's all about the darshan and accommodation which still needs to be plan.

2-Passengers can claim difference of fare ?

This happens due to shortage of 2 AC coach in TVC Division. A common site for this train. I know this well since I can see the train passing by in front of ma office.

1. Answer is YES bcoz the coaches sent for POH are not returned back to TVC Div. So they are forced to add an additional 3AC coach available at KCVL. The train is shunted at KCVL.
2. Passengers can avail the Diff in fare
3. Can apply for compensation. but so far I have not come across such

its not about changing the opinion or Signals or such... its the fact of Kerala express. The coaches sent for POH are not returned back by TN. So the TVC Div is forced to utilize whatever they have. 428 coaches sent for POH.. out of that only 210 coaches were returned back...
And I can say this 100% coz I see the rakes daily except Sundays,

But netra gets both the 2AC man... its not a common site.. but for kerala its becoming almost common. Shunting of Kerala takes place in KCVL and for Netra at TVC. So they seldom remove the 2AC. but For kerala, daily coach interchanging is common.. Shunters are given instruction at KCVL to operate only on Kerala express from 9:10 am till 1130 am for kerala express...
Some times whn 2Ac is missing Kerala express will be taken to TVC only at 11:30 am...
Average time departure of the Kerala express is around 11:30

Does this issue still persists?? I have booked in 2a for journey in may ( 12626, NDLS-TVC). Hope this issue is sorted out!.
One such incident happened with my father n brother, maybe a deacde back. They had tickets for 2a,but no coach NDLS-TVC. finally they had to travel in general upto jhansi, then were given 3a berths.
In one of my trip, train didn't have pantry car. Passengers where literally running for food n water at major stoppages.

Normally when u book via Eticket , u cant be upgraded to next higher class...for ex., u might have booked a 3AC , but u will be seen a SL instead due to repair or so...but if u want to upgrade to 2AC or 1AC even though if there is vacant in those classes , u cant in case of ETicket..In case of PRS Tickets u can be upgraded next to higher class for want of accommodation..the option left with those Eticket holders are they can get the LCC certificate from TTE and apply for refunds..that too via TDR filing through online only..PRS ticket holders can get the refund via at any reservation counters.....Jai Ho PRS..

Agree. In fact if i am not mistaken either S-8 and S-9 OR S-9 and S-10 are palakkad/coimbatore quota coaches. Ideally passengers with sleeper tickets are supposed to board these two coaches but invariably all the sleeper coaches are jampacked. After thrissur its relatively vacant. Even the new Ernakulam-Palakkad MEMU which moves ahead of this train probably till Thrissur is not able to reduce much load from this train .

Though the speed of the train is good, ironically its the run within kerala where the train's average speed is lower than a superfast train. The Palghat-TVC onward and return journey takes far too much time . It takes 4 hrs from ernakulam till trivandrum and 3 hrs 15 min from palghat till ernakulam !!!
