short report of my travel on 12494 sbc rajdhani.
Boarded the train on 7th at NZM...no special security noticed ( ref:Delhi blasts)
Also it was very difficult for the likes of senior citizens and physically challenged to cross the Platforms without the lifts,escalators, battery cars etc.
The 2AC coach was neat and clean.Dinner was served immediately and ice cream was served at 10.15 pm.next
day BF was served which included half sandwich, lemon sized upma and and a small vada . (may be they thought that i was on diet)...didn't ask for a second serving as the food was bland.
Stopped at BPQ at 1 pm for 15 minutes on PF 2.AP exp was there on PF 1.
paneer was a common ingredient in all the meals so was vanila ice cream.
Tea was served at 6.30 am and the train arrived at sbc at 6.35 am.
My overall assessment :
Speed ---4.5/5 ( too may stoppages for crossings)
food --- 2 /5
cleanliness-- 4.5/5
pantry staff were courteous and patient and ever smiling for which my father gave them rs 20

Thanks for information.
Is there any shops in Kalka railway station from where I can buy breakfast @5.30 AM ?
I would rather buy food from the starting station itself rather than getting disappointed some where in the middle :)

Kalka is a big town and you get plenty of good food to eat and even if you dont go into the town, railway station shops are fine.
