Hi All,
I had the previlege to be Maiden journey ( 12-Jul-2012) of Vizag- Sc durunto (22203)and wish to share few of my experiences.
Thankfully, i was able to get ticket on short notice, which is rare in Vizag for any train. Generally u need to do tatkal booking for journeys undertaken in 4-5 days.
There was choice asked, if you need veg or non- veg food, however in train everybody hopped to get something, but nothing was served. Reason is not known. Those ate would have thanked their gods, other had to just sit without anything. Add, that train does not stop anywhere and cannot even get water to drink. Surely atleast this could
have been served.
Then B-7 coach AC and power failed for over 45 mts and luckily restored, else it would have been frustraing 1st day run.
The coaches are old and given new paint, some noises were also emitting from the train. ( Old wine in new bottle).
The train was late by over 1.15 hrs and reached at 915 am.
Thanks and regards

There is no pantry car for this train and as with all durontos/raj/shatabdis, irctc asks for veg/non-veg choice during booking.
