COCKROACH IN DURONTO
CHENNAI: Thinking of travelling by the Duronto Express? Better carry an insect repellent to deal with uninvited co-passengers—cockroaches that infest the luxury coaches. The insects are taking the sheen off former Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee’s pet project, the Duronto Express non-stop trains.
The latest episode in the train’s woes unfolded in the Coimbatore-bound Duronto Express from Chennai Central on Monday morning, when commuters in the C2 compartment had a harrowing experience sharing the compartment with cockroaches that crawled out of every nook and corner.

said they found it difficult to even eat food on the train, as the pests roamed all around. “These were such tiny� cockroaches. I had to keep watching out for them throughout the six-hour journey,” a traveller lamented.
The roaches even crawled into the clothes of travellers, forcing commuters to spend much of their time fighting off the winged visitors.
“We were swatting them with newspapers. I had stamped a dozen cockroaches by the end of my miserable journey,” a commuter said. Ironically, the coaches were disinfected on February 24, if one goes by the chart put up in the coach, he added. Passengers said they were unable to leave empty food containers on the floor without cockroaches crawling into them.
“But what shocked us most was the reaction of the Travel Ticket Examiner; he was unconcerned and did not listen to our complaints,” a passenger rued as commuters wondered why they paid `625 for this “luxurious” treatment.
On January 4, a passenger on the same Duronto Express train to Coimbatore� found a worm in the sambar packet served for breakfast.

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    A minor update, but may impact many members: Hereafter, FMs will be able to delete invalid Red Flags on Imaginary trains.

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
