Train :- 12243 Chennai Centra (MAS) - Coimbatore Junction (CBE) AC Duronto Express.
Loco :- Ghaziabad WAP1 22044.
Location :- Coimbatore Junction.

This video was taken on two consecutive days. The co-incidence that prompted me to do this was that on both the days, the same loco (GZB WAP1 22044) was the link for 12243-44.
This video consists of two parts.

1. Door view of the Duronto entering CBE.
2. Platform view of the train entering CBE.

12243-44 is a 6 day a week train connecting Chennai and Coimbatore. This has the reputation of one of the worst trains of SR. In the first 6 months of 2012, this has been in the news for wrong reasons 4 times. The ACs dont work in many coaches, the food isnt tasty, the attendants ask for too much in tips, worms in the SAMBAR etc.

However JULY 2012 has seen a drastic change with the ACs working properly and some new coaches being added. The food quality has also improved to a great deal and the recent passengers have given a THUMBS UP to this train. Hope that SR continues to do good for this train and the passengers. The timings of this train can be shortened and the speed increased so that the people have one more reason to rejoice.
