"An awesome train journey"

4.6/5

Posted 16 October, 2015

i travelled in first tier A/C compartment. The services offered were great. The food served by them was awesome. The train was on time and made us reach our destination in time. From the starting of the journey to the end, there was no delay in the train. The toilet was neat and clean.

"Bathrooms were in very bad shape in this train "

1.4/5

Posted 15 December, 2014

This train is almost always overbooked and there were 2 RAC passengers in our compartment making it 10 people for 8 seats. The AC 3 tier coach was worse than the sleeper coaches. It was dirty and smelly and was not cleaned regularly. The bathrooms were in very bad shape with blocked sink drains and no soap. It was seldom cleaned and was always wet and smelly. The only consolation was that there were some good stations on the route and we got some decent food. Now the good part is - after Tatanagar, a particular tea vendor was selling his tea as "Khaaab se Kharaab chai" (worst tea) and it turned out to be one of the best tea (Ginger and Elaichi). I have had on train and even one of the better ones I have had anywhere. The train left earlier than scheduled from Kharagpur Station (and we had stepped out to sample aloo dums) and we almost missed our train. We chased the train and boarded it after requesting the guard to stop.

"Bad conditioned train with no cleanliness "

1.4/5

Posted 30 November, 2014

The train condition was very bad and I felt like reservation was of no use in the train and cleanliness was very bad. At every station the gate of the train was jammed by local vegetable vendors and fish vendors and there was no one to whom I could complain to.

"Cordial staff but a bad train "

2.9/5

Posted 14 July, 2014

Some time in past this was a train known for its punctuality, cleanliness, food quality and ambiance. It has now become a worst facility among the railway family. Will not travel unless there is no alternatives. One should avoid travelling by this train if possible. Carry your own food and drinking water. Staff was cordial in behavior, the only solace.
