Sleeping Berths and Seat Classes on Train Number 52:

There are four different coach types on this train:

3rd Class seat, fan cooled carriages - very cheap but quite uncomfortable on long journeys.

2nd Class seat, air-conditioned carriages - more comfortable than 3rd Class, but you might as well pay a little extra and get a sleeping berth.

2nd Class sleeper, fan cooled carriages -  a really good deal for those who don't like the sometimes too cold air-con.

2nd Class sleeper, air-conditioned carriages - bring along some warm clothes if you feel then cold.

If you do want to travel on one of the sleepers, you should book early and try to get one of the lower berths as they are much more comfortable (wider) than the cramped upper berths.
