A Lot of Sleepers: Train Ride from Trivandrum to Hyderabad, Part2

October 14, 2008

The landscape flying by us changes from a lush green and abundant scenery of Kerala to a dry and barren landscapes of Tamil Nadu and Andha Pradesh. Our wagon never gets to be overly crowded, although lots of people get off and on the train at every stop.

Everybody in the sleeper class has to have a reservation. Sleeper class means that you get to sleep. Each open compartment contains of six beds. The lowest one serves as the seat for everybody during the day, the middle one is only folded down at night and the most upper one is my favorite, because you can get up there, away from the hustle and bustle and chill out any time. The sleeper class wagons also have a long row of double stacked beds along the other side of the aisle.
