16177and 16178 - Rockfort Express
Once it was a prestigious train. The coaches were fairly good. Toilets were clean. it was cleaned at stations. The toilet doors were closing without gap and locks were good.All the above were the past. Normally if I get berths in last coupe, near to the toilet and rebook to avoid bad smell from the toilet. The two chains holding the middle berths were of different length,giving the fear to passengers. Windows were loose, especially, it don't get locked when raised. I got hurt when once the window fell on my hand. The coaches were very old. Since few new trains were introduced, between Mannargudi and Coimbatore,good coaches fro this and other trains were taken and used in that train, because of the political interference. SOme coaches are jolting,oldcoaches, and gives rise to the fear of derailment.
Now things like cleaning seems to improve. Butall other still remain nightmare
