In all the train trips we’ve ever done, none have been in Sleeper Class, which is the first class down from carriages with air-con. Sleeper class is a slightly misleading term as it’s perfectly fine for using solely for day time travel which is what we did.
It wasn’t actually possible to book from Kanyakumari to Trivandrum as the distance is short at around 100km, so I had to book up to Kochi, which at 310km is three times the distance. Total cost for the trip up to Kochi was Â£9 for all three. NINE!
Let’s let the photos do the talking…
Obligatory selfie, each carrying 9-13 kilos on our backs and 3-5 on our fronts:
We were in carriage S10, i.e. the 10th Sleeper Class carriage, it was the 12th out of 23 carriages, so it was a long walk in the searing heat along the platform:
There’s no air-con in Sleeper Class but the lack of windows means there is air con.
As well as the open windows there’s lots of fans:
