Planning to travel in the Island Express (16525) from TVLA to TCR. Ticket already reserved.
Whether the trains started running at the right time. For the last 2 to 3 days the train was running 3 to 4 hours delayed (as per the arrival/departure history). Tried to reach the railway station many times - no luck.
139 says all trains are running right time.
whether to cancel the ticket and go by bus :(

Island seems to be running with a delay of about an hour now.
I feel you can expect a minimum delay of about 45 minutes today @ TRVL

It was due to the derailment of the freight train near Karunagapalli. I think now both the tracks are operational. Saw news like that.

After shocks of derailment between STKT & KPY yet to get settled. Also a new crack detected near VAK station today morning. Hence except for trains like Rajdhani & JanSatabdi, others are yet to recover fully. So expect Island Express too to run late, atleast by 30 - 40 minutes.

Is there a restriction in the travelling time for season ticket holders ?
Is there any restriction in the number of times one can travel with a valid season ticket between the authorized stations ?

Is it a must that we need to opt for the food in Rajadhani Express. I was trying to book in Rajadhani from ERS via IRCTC and it is not allowing to skip the MEAL option. How good is the food served. Is the rate included in the reservation itself or is it something i need to pay later depending upon my menu choice.

Yes you need mention choice of food either Veg or Non-Veg since charges for it are added in the ticket fare...Usually are decent enough and very good in some Rajdhanis.You need not pay any charges & again on board they will ask you about choice Veg or Non-veg before serving.

Food costs are included in the fare. There is no option of opting out of it. As for the quality, the ratings differ from avg to above avg depending upon the sense of past travelers and classes traveled.

Catering charges for all Rajdhani trains are included in the ticket fare. Unfortunately, you don't have the choice to not opt for that. :(

In Rajdhani/Duronto/Shatabdi/Premium trains, meal option is compulsory
Ticket fare include the food cost throughout your journey
You will not have to pay any extra money whatever the menu is
