TRAINS COMING FROM MANGALORE SIDE INVARIABLY ARRIVE ONLY ON PLAT FORM NO.3. TO GO TO PLAT FORM NO.3 FROM THE STATION MAIN ENTRANCE IS A HERCULEAN TASK ESPECIALLY FOR THE ELDERLY AND DIFFABLED PASSENGERS. THERE ARE A HUGE FLIGHT OF STEPS WHICH HAVE TO BE CROSSED BEFORE REACHING THE PLATFORM. EVEN IF YOU TRY TO USE THE BACK ENTRANCE OF THE STATION TO GO TO PLAT FORM NO.3 THE TASK IS EVEN MORE DIFFICULT SINCE THERE ARE NO PORTERS. IT IS A TOUGH TASK FOR THE ELDERLY AND LADIES TO CLIMB THE STAIRS AND REACH THE PLATFORM WITH THE HEAVY LUGGAGE IN HAND. HENCE THE RAILWAYS SHOULD IMMEDIATELY INTRODUCE ESCALATORS FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE PASSENGERS. THEY SHOULD ALSO ENSURE THAT THE ESCALATORS ARE IN WORKING CONDITION.
THE RAILWAY STATION IS A PICTURESQUE MARVELL. BUILT IN BRITISH PERIOD OF 1886 IT IS 130 YEARS OLD. BEAUTIFUL INDEED. YOU HAVE TO ALIGHT HERE FOR THE VISITING WORLD FAMOUS BANDHAVGARH TIGER REVERVE. THE WHOLE STATION IS VERY CLEAN AND NICELY MAINTAINED. KUDOS TO SM & HIS TEAM.
I travelled by Jammu Rajdhani , Train No 12426, PNR Non2427331542 boarded the train at Pathankot Cantt Railway Station Coach B-4 Seat No 25. Condition of the coach was very poor. Toilets were stinking and dirty. There was no light in one of the Toilet & reported this matter to the TTE of the Coach but there was no action. Food was not up to the mark. I had given the option of Non-Veg food while booking the ticket through IRCTC but the attendant bluntly told me that Non - Veg is not available. Rjadhani Train once used to be a premium train with good quality of Food but food served on the particular day was not upto the standard.
