Cleanliness in A1 is good and all credits to NER MUV for this but the condition of coach is poor
NER should look out for replacing these coaches
Extremely clean train.. Very very clean seats toilets.. We can get pillows and blankets even in SL if we pay ₹25 or 30.
1. The train runs overcrowded for the entire journey. Sleeping on the floor next to toilet and between the lower berths is a common sight in sleeper coaches. Be prepared to go to the right exit to board/deboard the train.
2. The Sleeper rakes are full of cockroaches and rodents. Be careful with luggage/ food and kids.

What I have seen is it has mostly end to end passengers. Intermediate stations have very less quota. Saw similar crowd in MYS-HWH weekly exp too!!

worst part is cause of ECOR it extended prasanthi from VSKP from BBS and there is no single trainf starting from VSKP to SBC if a train is introduced then half problems are solved but ECOR does not care about waltair division it is only concerned about orissa highly biased
True. BBS-YPR Exp is still better. One can book from VZM and change BP to VSKP. Took BBS-YPR train yesterday and almost 150+ ppl boarded from VSKP.

VSKP is a big junction. There should be one daily superfast express train from VSKP to Bangalore. Also there should be one daily train from Howrah to Trivandrum, ernakulam.
Waltair division should be transferred to SCR from ECoR.
Toilets are clean and water is available. People travelling in the train make a mess of toilets though.
OBHS was available in sleeper class of the train. There was a family travelling in our bay and they had a son who probably was not well. He ate/drank something and throwed up. Another passenger in our bay immediately called OBHS staff and he cleaned the floor quickly. Water was available in toilet of S5 coach. Cleanliness in the train and toilet was average. Our seats were having dust on them so we had to clean it up with papers that we carried.
