Best Train in NDLS - Chennai Sector if you are running on a Budget. Mostly you will get High WL but at the time of Chart Preparation your Ticket will mostly confirm or will be in RAC . During July till Nov , One can easily get Current Available even in Sleeper Class as I recently got a confirmed Side Lower berth in S12 coach on 11'th Sep 2019 for my Journey from New Delhi To Etarsi. It has the Top priority on the Whole New Delhi - Etarsi route after Rajdhanis/Durontos and is the star of the route. Runs bang on time most of the Times as all the Zones give utmost Priority to this Southern Legend. It is best for RailFanning as the Whole Ghat Section right after Ganj Basoda till Nagpur is covered in Daylight on the 12622. Moreover , OBHS Staff came at 6:00 in the...

Gets huge bookings on MAS-BZA and NGP-NDLS sectors. So a BZA-NGP, BPQ-NGP, WL-NGP ticket is likely to be confirmed no matter how high the waitlist is.

Train is more punctual. More preference is given to this train than the Grand Trunk(GT) Exp. Book the tickets for the summer journey earlier to avoid RACs and WLs. Mostly after crossing Jhansi, half of The train will get emptied. Traffic between NZM - NDLS will be slightly more during Summer season.
Traffic between AGC - NDLS Will be heavy during Nov- Jan.
