My trip to delhi
Part I: going to delhi
>Journey plan:
I had an exam in delhi on 21 may at 11:00am. Hence i booked a ticket in mahabodhi express, which got cancelled. I came to know in afternoon and hence decided to take some train from BSB itself. As i cannot get confirm ticket, i decided to take WL ticket
...
more...
from PRS itself and travel. I got a WL ticket and went to board the train.
>Commencing journey:
It was looking very clean and well maintained. I could compare maintainance with SCR bound trains. coaches were 2009 made. Some had NR on it and some had NER. As i was early, I searched charts and sat in a berth of ALD qouta(as they will be empty from BSB-ALD.) TTE didnt come till ALD.
Train started bang on time. I felt it should have started 5min late to facilitate people who would miss in last minute. Another issue with north stations is that they dont give departure announcement.
Anyway, i was blasting through out but stopped twice before allahabad. It reached outter of allahabad around 21:25 and halted for 30min. finally reached ALD at 22:05. Departed at 21:30. I got down from berth as passengers boarded there. I went to tte and asked for berth, telling that i had exam today and hence need to be fresh. finally he gave me his berth and asked rs.250!!! and that too shared with one more person. But i had no other option.We slept like we got RAC.
It was 08:30 whan i woke up. it was at GZB. It reached NDLS after several halts at 09:30. There was no much fog. Dont know why it got delayed.
I took metro from ndls to noida.Metro was so fast and convinient.
Food: Food was good. I had just snacks like burger and cutlet. I enquired food was good. It had rice,roti,dal,sabji, papad and waterglass(packed).
Toilets were also clean.

    This is to address queries in the Forum about our various Groups - Admin, TL Monitor, FAQ Monitor, etc. . We are not appointing Admins anymore. Before Monitors, we had just one group called the Admin group. Now, we have the various Monitor groups. Our Admins themselves are members of the various Monitor...

    It has come to our attention that several IRI members have been causing mischief on other social media sites, distressing our regular loyal members. .

    There have been several reports that IRI cannot be accessed from a few large mobile data providers like Vodafone, whereas the site works fine when accessed through others.

    It has been observed that a dozen or so IRI Admins/Members are very active on Facebook, Whatsapp, Twitter, and other social networks, engaging in abusive and non-decorous conduct. These members thereafter, bring the politics of these OTHER SOCIAL networks into IRI, disrupting this Forum. .for While IRI is strictly moderated, the same cannot...
