My wife and me, both senior citizens, were awaiting train no.12684 ('Ernakulam Superfast Express') on platform(PF) no.2 of Bangalore Cantonment Railway Station ('BNC') from 6.45 pm on 30-3-2017. We were booked for A2 coach. There was no coach position display board anywhere in the Station, nor was there any machine to be used by passengers to get coach position electronically. The train was late by more than one hour to arrive at BNC from 'SBC' (Bangalore City). Just a few minutes before its arrival, the electronic display system on PF2 displayed coach positions, and our A2 coach position was near the back end of the train. Accordingly, we positioned ourselves on the PF. But when the train entered the Station, we were startled by the actual coach position. 'A2' was near the engine!
