I totally agree with Josi James. I any thing James has been a little charitable in describing the conditions on the trains on this route (Konkan route). Often there is no cleaning staff on the trains: I travelled on this train and found the on the second morning of the journey toilets in all AC bogeys were pathetic.
Withe the help of the Train Superintendent, whom I had given a complaint in writing and threatened to halt the train by pulling the chain, I found that four persons who carried identification cards as AC mechanics were on the train and two of them were, in fact sent as cleaning staff. They refused to do any cleaning till I took down their identification particulars and told them I would take up the matter with the authorities. THEN THEY CLEANED ALL THE TOILETS.
pathetic,ugly,terrible. stations also unclean,no proper services.
TICKETING....It is good that online tickets are many times available without any hassles ; but there should be provisions for lower berths for senior citizens; rac tickets also get side berths...
Speaking as a layman..I suggest.. 1)expanding the width of side berths by 6 inches. 2) making new coaches by increasing their size by 12inches, height by 24 inches, increasing 1 more berth space above; 3) broadening new laying tracks..ie. to slowly and fully convert in more broad gauge tracks..
this willincrease the carrying capacity of trains by almost 50 %,.
16335 NAGARCOIL EXPRESS (Gandhidham-Nagarcoil); 19260 Bhavnagar-Kochuveli; and 19578 Hapa Ten Express.... All these trains comprise of old and discarded coaches with stinking toilets and leaking taps. As a result there is lack of water in the train for toilets and wash basins. Toilets are such that one would feel it better to not enter inside it.
Veraval Travindrum Express (16333 and 16334): The coaches are very old. Lot of patch works done in the coaches. Cleaning is pathetic. Cockroaches and Rats are roaming freely and damaging the luggage of travelers. Toilets are stinking. Needs proper cleaning.

Trains have to be designed for maximum comfort with minimum maintenance required so that the service shall remain good thru the life of the train coach .Modt of the coaches be designed got Aircindutioning they Solar as well as captive power usages and the stoppages be staggered between trains to maximum the run of about 2 hours at a stretch .this can also distiributecthe passengers better and trains would be loaded better .

After Mr.Suresh Prabhu took over the reigns, the state of Indian railway platform has become fantastic. Earlier we used to see/get dirty things(and even dirty smell of toilet(i.e., urine smell)) on the platforms/walkovers. Now, there are cleaners standing alert in these areas and maintaining it pretty clean. I observed this especially in Bangalore and Mantralaya railway stations. Also there are many services like 'destination station alert' and dedicated telephone numbers for different services etc.,

Kudos to Mr. Suresh Prabhu and his team for the great work which was not observed for many years earlier. This is the best example to highlight that 'IF ONE WANTS TO DO THE WORK/SERVICE, HE/SHE CAN DO IT AT ANY COST IRRESPECTIVE OF THE SIZE OF THE ORGANIZATION'.

I had a terrible experience of travelling on Howrah-Pune Duranto Exp started on 3rd Nov-18 from Howrah. It commenced by 1 and half hrs late and arrived Pune by 9 hrs late on 4th Nov. Food supply stopped after lunch hour and it did not halt on stations but at odd places, from where you could get no foods and beverages. Nowadays they charge variable fares and I paid @ Rs.3500 each while booking my tickets. And this train was getting the least priority while all other trains were being allowed to go ahead of it. All this at a cost equal to airfare! Who is going to travel by Duranto, a so-called premium train? This is the reason why half my compartment was empty and still they foods were also being served late, e.g. breakfast on 3rd was served a12 noon, lunch at 4 pm and dinner at 11 pm and so on.

They paste the identity details provided by the passenger in front of the compartment. When PAN number is given as ID by a passenger, the information pasted on the compartment is copied by some fraudulent antisocial people. The PAN no. and other details of the passenger are used to purchase gold above 2lakh Rupees, where PAN no. is warranted. This will attract the attention of tax department towards a person, who has not purchased, and is being victimised.
