घनघोर उपेक्षा Coro की।
Pathetic maintenance of King of SER.....Still not given LHB stock yet😡😡😡Shame on SER...
Rakes are very old .... 2004 made coaches were still being used in this train....
This train is the lifeline of Chennai, Andhra, Odisha and Bengal people....
If major accident occurs Railways must take responsibility (Coromandel express has had an grevious accident in 2008 near Jajpur Keonjhar Road) now recently Bikaner
Guwahati express accident due to fault on these type of coaches.
SER had given LHB stock even to slow type train like East coast express but why not for this train???
Coromandel express and Howrah Chennai mail are legendary trains of SER after Gitanjali, Duronto etc
Rakes of this train spotted in pathetic maintenance at Ambattur(approx. 15 kms from MAS) Utkrist livery was completely useless and looking very dirty than Blue ICF rakes. Must to be send to scrapyard as soon as possible 🙏🙏🙏
Some LHB rakes alloted to ECoR were spotted near ICF factory loop. (But no idea about which train will get LHB in ECoR)

Its maintenance has always been worst. I had a traumatic experience travelling in Coro/HWH Mail. While IR is responsible for maintaing the rakes, passengers do share an equal responsibility in maintaing the cleanliness of the train. Moreover, the TAT of Howrah Mail at MAS before it leaves as Coro is very very less. Gets only PF attention at MAS. Strange that SER didnt even convert one rake to LHB.

As far as I have seen, no cleaning happens at MAS. Just rolling stock examination.

The very idea of Duronto is to have limited technical halts enroute with an aggressive schedule. But IR converted all of those halts to commercial ones and slowed down many Durontos. So, the concept is dead even though we have trains in that name now. No more Durontos will be introduced in future.

KSR Bengaluru - Chennai Shatabdi express skipping Baiyappanahalli at 110 kmph MPS while a man crossing track luckily escaped from this speeding train. Pls use Foot over bridge for crosing and don't use tracks. It is highly risky.

Tuticorin - Mysuru express was looped at Baiyappanahalli for late running Chennai - SSPN express to overtake. Enjoy the early morning high speed actions at Baiyappanahalli. Do watch and share the video.

Trials were conducted between MAS and JTJ few years back. But still no progress. Same is the case with MAS-GDR/RU.
