16857 Puducherry-Mangalore Central Express Train
MANGALORE EXP From Puducherry to Mangalore Central
The Puducherry Mangalore Express is very very poorly maintained with very old wobbly coaches. Very unclean toilets and linen in AC coaches. Very slow in speed and the timings seem to have been tailor made for passengers going to Mahe at the cost of travellers to Mangalore.
Since it is the only direct travel to Mangalore it needs to be speeded up and maintained well.
