Food quality in this hugely popular train is pathetic. Travelled by 2 tier AC which cost me the same as a flight travel. Moreover the unjustified huge waiting/ travel time taken by this train between cantonment and Bangalore city junction which is matter of just 6-7 kms is close to 30 mins on your bad day.
Travelled by 3 tier sleeper class. The coach was surprisingly clean and we had no issues travelling. We had to buy food from the station as there was no pantry on the train but that was okay as the train stopped at major stations for a very long time. The railway attendants were helpful and co-operative.
Little boring journey, still you can relax for these many hours or spend time in reading, rail contractors in AC compartment are not so good. Sheets and towels are not clean and hygienic, house keeping is poor, 2AC little better about house keeping but same in hygienic towels and sheets. Food is big trouble since no pantry car.
