Didn't have a pleasant experience on this train last week for the following reasons:
1. My bogie S1 was extremely dirty with litter all around
2. Both wash basins were clogged
3. 1 toilet was unusably dirty and another had broken fittings
4.
...

Washbasins within toilets were dirty as well
5. Had to tweet to RailMin to get the compartment/train cleaned up - no OBHS in SL at least
6. Charging points were there in every cabin, but most plug points were not working
7. No timely food was served in the train
8. Once somebody in civil dress had come to take food orders for lunch, but it was delivered to passengers at 11.15AM and after that he wasn't seen again
9. One guy who came in the morning selling Cutlets for breakfast - the cutlets were AWESOME and priced at 40 Rs for 2 quite big cutlets and 2 buttered slices of bread
10. Take whatever is sold by vendors or buy from the stations itself
11. Punctuality and speed was superb

Can we reach LTT from Dadar by taxi within 1.5 hrs? (assuming we leave Dadar at 7 p.m., can we conveniently catch this train at 8.50 p.m.?) Kindly advise me about the scenario in the rainy season in particular, the roads and the water logging if applicable on the roads.

It may also help to get from Dadar to Wadala and take the Eastern Freeway which ends at Chedda Nagar (Chembur) and take a left at the signal to climb the Santacruz Chembur Link Road flyover which will directly drop you off at LTT.
In this route, rain or no rain any major traffic will only be encountered at the Chedda Nagar signal.

S11 in 16332 is a new bogie commissioned in 2013 and hence has bio-toilets that are quite clean.
Even the compartment itself is in a good shape currently.
Has good quality charging points in every cabin.
There was no issue with the water supply either for the entire journey.

Important changes made in Railway Passengers (Cancellation of tickets and refund of fare) Rules are as under:-

(i) If confirmed ticket is presented for cancellation upto 48 hours before the scheduled departure of the train, per passenger minimum cancellation charge is levied
. (ii). If confirmed ticket is presented for cancellation between 48 hours and upto 12 hours before the scheduled departure of the train, 25% cancellation charges is levied subject to minimum flat cancellation charge.

Certain provisions of Railway Passengers (Cancellation of tickets and refund of fare) Rules have been amended to check bogus claims, to facilitate provision of Mobile ticketing as well as paperless ticketing, discourage last minute cancellation resulting in seats/berths going vacant etc. The amendment in refund rules became necessary to adapt to changes/developments in the ticketing systems.
Further, reservation charts are being prepared at least 4 hours in advance, which facilitates purchase of available berths till 30 minutes before departure of the train.
No cancellation charge or clerkage charges is levied and full fare is refunded to all passengers holding confirmed, RAC and Wait-listed tickets if the journey is not undertaken due to late running of the train by more than three hours of scheduled departure of the train from the journey commencing station, subject to the condition that the ticket is surrendered prior to the actual departure of the train
This information was given by the Minister of State for Railways Shri Manoj Sinha in a written reply to a question in Rajya Sabha on 11.12.2015.

Hello Sir,
Previously waitlisted e-tickets that continued to be waitlisted during charting were automatically dropped.
Do the new rules imply that it will no longer happen now and I need to manually cancel my waitlisted ticket, or I lose my money?
Regards
Vinay

Hello All,
I am still getting extremely confused with referring to the monsoon timetables on IRI for Konkan Railway.

Dear All,
For KR the FROM-TO searches for a date that falls within the Monsoon TT period continue to show the arrival and departure times as per the normal TT in the results table.
The only way to view the actual monsoon timings is only possible to be viewed one train at a time by clicking to see it's full TT and then clicking "Show Old Time Table".
I

have attached pictures to try and explain what I mean.
Is there any way we could update the arrival departure timings for the entire results table as per the Monsoon TT in case a user searches for a date that falls within the Monsoon TT period?

Confirmed with the on board staff on 12223 that the train has an official one minute halt at PNVL.
The same is not true for 12224 though.
