As we travelled by the AC chair car in the train, there was not much of a hassle in the train. We had a restful journey and could catch up on sleep as this train starts in the early hours from Varanasi. In six hrs. we reached Lucknow. I would advise this train as we reach Lucknow right on time for breakfast. There is no food available in the train. It is better to carry food and water with you.The toilets are not at all clean. The railways need to do much better to maintain the interiors of the train. Some of the seats in the chair car are in a torn condition.

The moment we landed at Lucknow railway station, there was utter chaos outside the station. The roads are crowded with cycle rickshaws, auto's, buses and what not. Vendors are standing right in the middle of the road. No policemen can be seen to control the place. Again, the high court area is...more »

We went by own SUV and celebrated the journey cheerfully. There was greenery on either sides of the road. 7 to 10 small rail line come in journey. in which every one must carefully wait to cross them. So that no accident may take place. I also suggest people to do journey by their own car, which may help to enjoy better than any public transport system.

Train journey was OK but not scheduled on time, should be more particular about the time schedule. We may get late if we rely on this train for our schedule. May find another train to travel. This train is very particular in getting late which may lead us to get late in our schedule.

I with my friends planned to visit Kashi. So we decided to visit by train. Its about 12:55 pm when our train departs from station. We all booked our tickets in chair car class. There was not too much rush in the train. It reached the destination about 8 pm which was really bad because the average time between from Lucknow to Varanasi is around 5-6 hours. So that was my overall experience.
