Traveled in this train from BLS to KGP on 26.01.2015. The train was late, departed from BLS at 10:49 and reached HWH at 14:15. A fast run between BLS and KGP led to reach KGP at 12:15. On board housekeeping kept coaches clean. At KGP, the toilets and window glasses were cleaned. Soup with bread sticks was served after BLS and lunch was provided after KGP.
Lunch menu-
1. Rumali roti(2 pcs)
3. Achaar
4. Zira rice
5. Chicken curry(2 large pcs of chicken)
6. Gulabzamun(2 pcs)
7. Omfed mitha dahi

did you measure speed using gps ... any chance of increase of MPS of this shatabdi followed by speedup later ?

Thank you very much.
The food quality was not excellent, but far above the average. Amount was good. This can be an area of further improvement.

    Often we have some TL Entries seemingly in WaitList forever. Usually, the reason for this is that TLMs have already looked at the TL Entry but are not confident enough to Confirm it or are looking for more inputs from the Member regarding the source, etc. And this delay eventually causes...

    This is to address persistent and lingering questions about FM Appointments: . 1. Being an FM is a service. It is NOT supposed to be some kind of "reward" or "medal" to "deserving" members.

    Very soon, we shall have a points-system for Timeline updates, Atlas updates, News updates, Blog Tagging, News Tagging, Blog Tagging, etc. The reason for this is that some kinds of updates require more hard work and are more useful than others.
