Udyan Express 2nd AC coach was from NE railway probably shunted from there. Did not have sprinkler nor mug in WC western style .No place to keep your soap box, tooth brush and other toiletries. No hand rail to keep napkin or to hold .Travelled on 30th Sept. in A-3 coach from Sai P Nilayam to mumbai. Small cockroaches also seen in WC.
Travelling by Jhellum Express between Pune to Agta is always a horrible experience. I travel quiet often by this train and find that the yrain is always late, the tea is horrible, bedding is soiled, blankets are very old and torn. No improvement. Tea is never served with tea bags, horrible coffee only God knows what brand they use. The vendor does not provide popular brands of coffee. This contractor must move out.
The train 12103 between Pune to Lucknow, do not have any cleaning system as I found out when I travelled on 6th April 2018. None came to clean the coach in spite of the sign with the helpline number The same thing happened while I was returning from Kanpur to Pune on 12th. When the coach 2AC (only one coach) was spared for cleaning the coach, one can imagine the condition of the toilets.
1.The coaches used in train 12601/2 are very bad .The paints and even metal parts were peeling out in 2A coaches of this train.I think this was a prestigious train once. 2.Though it runs as a fast passenger between Shornur and Mangalore it is classified as a "SUPERFAST" train and charges accordingly.
I use to travel by Nellai Express No 12631 regularly to Tirunelveli and train is a super fast category. Conditions of II class coaches are not upto the standard and important note is till Madurai train will run fastly and from Madurai to Tirunelveli it will run slowly and will halt and allow passengers also to cross the train. Due to this business people like us are suffering with time delay. By going properly train can reach at 7 am instead 8 am.
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.
