"Nothing worst than this train travel !!!"

0.7/5

Posted 14 March, 2018

We travelled recently by this train from Shegaon to Mumbai, on 13th March 2018. We have also travelled earlier in year 2014. Following is our review: Positives: (1) Train is mostly on time compared to other trains. (2) Seats are well maintained and mostly clean. Negatives: (1) Most of the time, your seat is already occupied by some passenger without a valid ticket or ticket from other lower class. We travelled by III A/C on all occasions. Passengers claim that, they do this quite often and vacate the seat only when you ask them to do so. (2) Passengers from Nashik (2014) and Akola/Bhusaval are arrogant, and they want to sleep within 5 minutes after entering the train. They generally will verbally order you to vacate their births so that they can sleep. Even if you have children with 3-6 years with you, they will not listen or give you some time to adjust to their order. (3) Overall, due to above 2 negative points, travel experience is bad/terrible, and we can give a rating of 1 out of 5 to this train travel. We would advise passengers travelling from Dadar (Mumbai) to look for alternatives instead of this difficult train travel.

"Quite good but the train was delayed "

3.9/5

Posted 29 August, 2015

My experience with this train was good. But it is common problem of Indian Railways that they are frequently late and so was mine by 45 min. I was travelling in A/c 3 tier the coach was clean and the attend was also helpful but quality of food was not that good.

"Rail travel has been frustrating in recent times"

2.9/5

Posted 27 February, 2015

Booking tickets 120 days in advance is clearly an exploitation from the government. Meals on wheels serving veg food for 100 and chicken meal for 130 for a very poor quality and equally poor quantity. Phone chargers are almost never available for side lower and side upper passengers making it even more difficult. Even 2AC coaches are in broken and dilapidated conditions. Indian rail has highly fallen in quality in recent times. Delays have been exorbitant (from 3 to 13 hours in different routes).

"Seats were neat and clean with good toilets "

3.6/5

Posted 11 August, 2014

The Gitanjali Express is one of the superfast trains in the east and among the fast trains that run in Indian railways. I am a frequent traveller of Gitanjali Express. We Travelled from Howrah to Nasik in third AC. Seats were neat and clean, bedding, toilets were also clean. They also offer tea, coffee, food inside the train. In-between stoppages one can get the best possible tea and vada pav. Another feature of this journey was the rolling and waving tunnels and rivers in the same leg of the journey.

"AC class toilet was clean"

5.0/5

Posted 19 July, 2014

This is my second time when I travelled to Mumbai via Gitanjali train. A good experience when I travelled via train. I booked my ticket in AC class, because it is a very safe other than general class. I enjoyed so much in my berth. I travelled this time all alone. AC class was very clean and also the toilet was clean.
