This train should now be provided with emd locomotives like wdp4 or wdp4d of lko or izn shed rather than wdm3a from mgs shed
Please try the food of the Pantry by this train. Very good food. Catering done by Deepak Caterers. The best part is the pantry people strictly do not overcharge and quote proper rates and give good quantity food. Probably the Ethics of Thirukkural have inspired them. :)
Breakfast- 2 pieces of cutlet and 2 slices of bread with liberal butter applied for Rs. 30.
Lunch/Dinner- Unlike other pantry where they grumble to give 50rs meal, here he gave option of 50rs and 100rs. I ordered 100rs one. It was served in a plastic tray like Rajdhani/Shatabdi it contained.
1 Aloo subzi
1 Dal
1 Paneer sabzi
1 Rice
All the above items of equal and large size container.
1 Pickle
1 Salt sachet
1 Plastic Spoon
1 Packaged Drinking water glass
3 Parathas
1 gulab jamun
1 Curd (not watery but thick curd)
You can just imagine how full the tray was :)
Bill was given separately as I asked for with details plus GST.
Tea for 10rs with Marie biscuit.
Along with Rajdhani like speed and very less scheduled halts thirukkural SF is truly worth travelling in.
Coaches are a bit old but decently maintained due to OBHS.
Even though I travelled in Sleeper in hot summer months the ethical behaviour of pantry persons along with good food made my trip very pleasant. I missed a meal as I was fed up with pantry service, but this train revived my faith. Will definitely suggest members and railfans to try this train.
India's first ISO Certified Train and Maintaining that degree after soo many years also, no matches in train safety, speed, and cleanliness. I must say in this category of Superfast/Express trains this one is World class comparing to other trains of India.
Travel just once to know the real feel and observe from yourself.
Best travel option from Delhi/H Nizamuddin to Habibganj/Bhopal for a overnight journey.
It's a condition of sleeper coach.
To much waiting list passenger in tha train no space to go wash room.
Why railways give so much waiting tickets and allow the passenger to travel that tickets.

Speed punctuality of chendur express after dindgul is very poor yesterday day the train arrives Madurai 1.30 late otherwise they stop the train in vanchi maniyachi or talaiyuth more than 1 hr to 30 min for overtaking other trains so crt tym of chendur express is to reach Tirunelveli is 5.15 am it's a good time
