Demand extra paratha or ice cream or samosa if you need, anyway you have to give tip to train staff at the end of the journey. They will provide you. Plus they will help you while getting down at your destination with your luggage, if you give them tip ;)

If you are travelling alone in sleeper class, avoid lower/ Side lower or middle berth. Always opt for upper/ Side upper berths. As daily/ unreserved passengers boards and de-boards at various stations en-route and this goes till BSL. Due to this, sleeper class is looks like more or less a general class.

I have to visit Mumbai for 1 day business trip, arriving LTT by 18030 at 4:50 hrs. I have some queries:
1. How is the connectivity from LTT to MMRDA Exhibition Center, Bandra Kurla Complex? What is the fare in general for auto/taxi?
2. Cloakroom facility available at LTT? If yes, which platform?
3. How is LTT in general, I mean safety, ambiance
@ 4:50 in morning? Any dormitory available for quick fresh-up? Any good food outlet for breakfast?
PS: I'm not opting for any hotel or lodge as I have to stay in the city for 4-5 hrs only after that I have to continue my onward journey. Inputs from local members are appreciated. Thanks!

Many a times I have seen people were debating over late running of trains in NCR. I never get involved in any of these debates. Last week I went to visit my maternal aunt(Mausi) in Allahabad for some family function. My maternal Uncle (Mausa) works in NCR as a senior sectional engineer. So, it was a golden opportunity for me to ask him why trains run late in railways, especially in NCR? Discussion was very healthy and interesting. He told me railway tracks are over-saturated with traffic in NCR. Every year railways starts new trains on existing infrastructure which was originally designed to handle less than quarter of traffic(1/4) of present day. Right now NCR tracks are 400% saturated, than it was originally designed. He also told me that 70% of revenue are generated from freight traffic and Railways incures loss from passenger traffic from very first day of operation. He...
also discuss priority of trains in NCR. Summary are as follows (As he narrated to me):
Priority 1: Rajdhani Exp, Shatabdi Exp, Durnoto Exp and other 130 Kmph certified trains gets top priority. NCR specially defined “running window” for premier trains like Rajdhani Exp, Shatabdi Exp, Durnoto Exp trains. During this time no others trains are allowed on mainline. This is the reason East bound Rajdhanis from NDLS departs back to back (With few exceptions.). NCR adopts a policy of full clearance of next 20 kms on mainline for 130 kmph rated trains. That means every train in next 20 kms will be looped and 130 kmph train will get go ahead signal (green signal). VIP movement (Railway Minister, DRM, GM) special trains also comes in this category.
Priority2: Rapid freight trains. These trains contain items which scheduled to deliver within 24 hrs (NDLS-HWH and Vice-versa) such as seafood, etc. These trains are insured against any delay and if any delay caused, railway bound to pay insured amount to the client. Fare charged by the railways for these kind of trains are also higher than regular freight trains. Railway employees mocks these trains as “Freight Rajdhani”. These trains are rated at MPS of 110 kmph.
Priority3: On time running Superfast Trains.
Priority4: On time running Exp trains.
Priority5: Pre-scheduled freight trains. Trains are rated at MPS of 110 kmph.
Priority6: Late running Superfast Trains.
Priority7: On time passenger trains.
Priority8: Late running Exp trains.
Priority9: Pre-scheduled freight trains. Trains are rated at MPS of 75 kmph.
Priority10: Late running passenger trains.
Priority11: Unscheduled freight trains.

Re# 1625149-38            Tags   Past Edits
why there is no mention of super monitored trains + monitored trains . In All zones Super Monitored trains are given great priority and if super monitored trin get late then railway has to maintain record of minute by minute loss of timings. A super monitored sf can overtake non monitored sf but you have not mentioned it anywhere.
also priority 7 and 8 are wrongly organised. late running exp get more priority than on time passenger.

this is CONCOR, or ConRAJ ( Rajdhani of freights ) running at 100 MPS, such 100 MPS freights are often mocked as "Rocket" in ALD/NCR.

On time running superfast trains getting status higher ?
Thats only hypothetical and on papers. In reality, the train which has bigger "brand" name and specially of home zone runs ahead,irrespective of the late schedule it causes for behind superfast train.
This is the reason why an on time superfast train with least halts and average speed of nearly 70kmph runs behind a late superfast train which has more halts and less average speed.
the priority 3 in the forementioned list should be : On time running Home zone "branded" Superfast Trains.

Timings are good. But I think at 2 places TT is unrealistic. Firstly, between BNC and HUP. Secondly, between MMR and JL. Else everything is fine :)
