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 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.
Rating:
cleanliness:4.5/5
Food:4/5
Speed:4/5
