Train #12607 CC - AC Chair Class, Indian Railways, Aug 11, 2019
Train station was fine. Unfortunately our seats were 3/3 facing eachother. Less room for each person. Bring sweater for train I got cold in the a/c. Besides being uncomfortable, it was easy ride to Bangalore. They did not announce train stations so pay very close attention to which station or use app, Google maps /where's my train to track where you are.
