Hi I have booked two tickets from Coimbatore to Chennai 1AC. This is the first time i have booked 1AC Will be getting a Coupe. I have no clue on how 1AC looks or how it works even though I have seen the pics and read about it online and even in this forum.
Have traveled in all the other classes. Could someone please explain

I have traveled 1AC and a lot actually depends on the train or rack. One one occasion, I can recall on Falaknuma Exp and it appeared that it was the old First Class Coach retrofitted with AC! Not sure about Cheran Exp though. A coupe is always nice for privacy although one is constantly disturbed by vendors and attendants wanting to serve this and that. I guess if you told the attendant not to disturb you, it would work or specify only for taking the meal order and serving it.

Cheers

As Nattusbs says it differs from train to train I've seens very nice compartments and had a hellish journey where the bed had bedbugs of all things...

You do know there is no guarantee of getting a two bedded coupe, this is at the discresion of the Charting officer. You have no say in whether you get allocated a two berth coupe or a four berth.

Here's a look at the four bedded AC first class..

While everything above is right, for the charting guy you are just another passenger. his focus is more on accommodating the MP's etc correctly rather than looking at privacy and other concerns of other passengers.

So keep your hopes accordingly.

In anycase, this is just a short night journey.

As mentioned by everybody else, what matters is how new your coach is. I've travelled by some really horrible 1AC coaches (Hampi Express), as well as some extremely neat and clean ones (Karnataka Express, Bangalore Mail).

As far as I know, Cheran Express and Navjivan share rakes, and Navjivan usually gets fairly average 1A coaches. Nothing terrible, nothing fantastic either.

To add, Cheran has one HA Coach. Also if Navjivan gets late, Cheran will also depart late.

dipyamanbasu as question if I may, where can you look for the rake composition of a particular train, or is this just personal experience your draw on?
