I am intending to travel from Nellore to Chennai on Feb 22, by HWH TPJ Exp 12663. Got an E-ticket in waiting list WL14/WL14, unchanged status since 4 days. If this does not get confirmed by Feb 22nd, I would like to know if I can get a General ticket from Nellore to Chennai on this Superfast Train, distance is nearly 150 km.

? A waitlisted ticket will be waitlisted whether it's an e-ticket or not.

Sure you can get a ticket in General Class; it's Unreserved Class, anyone can get a ticket, how you get on board or manage once you do is entirely up to you. (Though General/Unreserved class won't be available on some spiffier trains, it is true. Maybe check your train at http://erail.in/ and see what classes are available. On a normal Express train, I don't think it should be a problem, but on a Superfast train, I just don't know.)

For your waitlist options as such, kindly ask at this thread: Post your waitlist questions here ONLY. People will need to know your waitlist numbers, date of travel, train name or number, departure and arrival stations, and train class to give a reasonable estimate.

Usually there happens to be a distance restriction in almost all of the trains in Indian Railways. Infact if you talk of Superfast trains, they have a much tighter restriction when compared to Mail/Express trains.

@ OP:
Kindly visit the station to purchase a Gen Superfast Ticket from Nellore to Chennai. You would also have to mention the name/number of the train. The PRS Clerk would then let you know whether General Ticket for such distance can be issued or not. If not, he would insist in giving you a general superfast ticket against the minimum distance to be traveled as applicable for this train.

Kindly note the distance restriction depends from station to station/class to class when you speak of a certain train. Also do take care of the fact to purchase a general superfast ticket and not a general ordinary ticket of Mail/Express trains.

Since your original ticket is an E-Ticket, if it happens to remain fully waitlisted after chart preparation, it shall be auto-cancelled and refund would be credited to your account in 3-4 working days. Hence in no way, you would be able to travel against the same ticket.

I am sorry, but I failed to mention that I live in Hyderabad and will be on a trip on 22nd. Is there a way to know if this 12663 train has a distance restriction for general class, of course I have got a reserved ticket for 150 km, but I am in doubt.
