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

Reason of low accupancy is overall running time & schedule arrival time in ANVT.
If Train reached 10.00AM it is not favorable to student or Working people.

    There was some persistent glitch, requiring us to stop and restart all the servers. This led to a 30 minute outage. Really sorry about that. Thanks for everyone's patience.

    There have been some reports that the IRI Atlas is not visible. This seems to be some problem at the Google Maps end. To resolve this, please log out and log back in, and everything should start working. Thanks.
