Train is always nice as ever as it is Rajdhani. Main problem with it was the food provided by them which is not still up you the mark. They should provide by some third party which have some reputation and name. I was travelling in second class A/c coach which is nice.
The train was right on time with a bus waiting for us at the railway station which took 24 hr from Delhi to Manali via Chandigarh. The roads to Manali via Chandigarh are to narrow, even a small vehicle wreck or an accident can keep you waiting in the traffic jam for hours!
Travellers mostly go for Rajdhani Trains, as they are fast and take's less time as compared to other trains. Travellers of Mumbai first take trains mostly from Mumbai Central to Delhi and then from Delhi they book a private vehicle, if travelling with family. The Rajdhani Trains mostly runs on time.
The 2 tier AC of Rajdhani was very well-maintained by the train staff. There was no need to get down on station, as in the train itself everything was provided on timely basis. The services offered in the train was good. The toilets were cleaned at each stations to maintain the cleanliness.
Travelling by this train is always a good option. Everything is standardized and the service experience is always the same. Nothing much to say, departure is on time and arrival too. Food could be better (dinner). It has been consistently bad.
We travelled by 2nd AC class as we were with kids. The journey was pleasant and quick. One of the fastest ways to reach Sawai Madhopur is by taking August Kranti Rajdhani only. Food served was average but if you ask for Jain meal from Mumbai itself, they are willing to prepare the same. Bed Linen and cleanliness was good. Staff on board were cordial and supportive.
The journey was enjoyable. We got a good affordable train to reach Goa. The sightseeing is also a plus from the train. Food water and other refreshments are available in the train. We de-boarded at Kokan Railway, nearest railway station to Panaji, Goa. Overall a great experience.
The train is best in its class and it maintains its time table. The quality of food was average but it is better from other trains. I travelled in first class and the conductor and the T.T were very polite and helpful. I had missed my inhaler at home but they arranged that on the train. Bedding was very clean and comfortable. Over all my experience was is superlative term.
I have been using this train for up and down for almost a decade and I have always preferred it due to the quality of service. The coaches are clean, food is ok standard and toilets are neat. The train also reaches mostly on time and I did not face much issues. It has very less stops and it cruises very fast to its destination. In short period I have to book ticket through tatkal service.
