The food served in 12239 - BCT - JP Duranto is pathetic. Today, for the lunch, the rotten dal and uncooked rice were served. Parantha was as thick as pizza base and was not cooked properly.
I was exited to see the well maintained livery but all enthusiasm of travel died with such bad quality of food.

My account has been moved to some new "Whatever" I don't know. But the problem is that I am not able to view my recently booked tickets.
I have booked two tickets. For one, I know the PNR but for the other, I don't remember the PNR even.
So, how can I get these tickets??
PLEASE HELP!!! I requested for help earlier as well but haven't received any response.

What is the difference between 2S and SL?
I booked four 2S ticket for a smaller journey in 19023 / FZR Janta Exp. I have been assigned tickets in S07 coach which I guess is a sleeper coach.
I am not able to understand what is the difference??
Also, does this train have heavy load of local passengers from Borivali to Dahanu? Will it be a problem in getting the seats because of daily travelers occupying 2S seats?

There is no 2S coach in 19023. It only has SL class. There will be huge rush in the train since this train is widely used by daily commuters and unreserved passengers.

I specifically selected 2S as we are just travelling for 2 hours from BVI to Dahanu.
It charged as just INR60/- per ticket wherein sleeper is for 106/- I guess. The ticket also shows 2S but the Coach Number is S07 with the seat number 17(W), 18, 19, 20 (W).

My team is planning a weekend Picnic at Bordi and I got my tickets booked from BVI to UBR through this 19023.
I got the PNR (8512122029) which shows 4 confirmed tickets but these e-tickets are not yet available in :
My Transactions > Booked History.
I booked these tickets last night. It confirmed the PNR immediately but I am yet to receive a Text Message from IRCTC and e-ticket is not yet available in my account.

Then book a ticket from Mumbai Central to Ahmedabad in and change boarding to Borivvaliin EC Class current status is WL#8
Try Tatkal tomorrow for AC Chair Car or Executive Class.. If you dont get a confirmed Tatkal Ticket.. Then book a ticket from Mumbai Central to Ahmedabad and change boarding to Borivvaliin EC Class current status is WL#8.. GNWL has greater chance to confirm than RLWL..

Thanks for the photos.
I have never understood why railways gives more quantity / variety to 1AC passengers when the catering charges are the same for Sleeper / 3AC / 2AC / 1AC. For eg. in YPR-HWH Duronto corn flakes and bananas are part of 1AC breakfast but never given to others. This is actually illegal and one day someone can file a lawsuit for cheating. If required they can simply increase the 1AC catering charges by 50-100 rupees which can justify the preferential treatment

tkt.jpgHi,
I have booked a ticket through irctc.co.in. The amount has been charged to my Bank Account and a Ticket was generated. I copied the PNR number as well.
8223325794
But, now, while checking the Booking History, this ticket is not listed in my tickets. I don't know where is it gone. I haven't received the SMS ticket as well till now.
This ticket was for BCT-ADI DD for April 15, 2014.
Please suggest what is it and how to get my ticket. I have the PNR Number.

--::--:: My maiden ADI-BCT AC DD Express (12932) journey ::--::--
So, finally I got a chance to travel by Double Decker Express. In the last two months, travelled to Ahmedabad on and off, but couldn’t resist the charm of Shatabdi ever. This time, in my journey towards Ahmedabad, my 4 year old kid saw the DD passing and got charmed with the different looking coaches of this train. He made me promise to travel by this train in our return journey.
On 18th March, I got WL 42/43/44 which ended up being settled down at WL 7/8/9 when the chart was prepared. So, I checked the availability on 19th March at 3:00 am in the morning on 18th and was surprised to see the 174 seats available. I booked the tickets
...

immediately. Got the confirmation for the seat numbers 96/97/98 in Coach C10.
We reached the ADI station at 5:45 AM on 19th May. My kid was super excited to see the Yellow-Red beautiful livery and for the first time in his and even my life, witnessed this Double Decker arrangement. While reading through different blogs earlier, there was some apprehension regarding the leg space. I should call myself lucky that the seat we got were the middle seats in the Upper Floor. So, there were no issues with the leg space.
The train departed the ADI Platform 7 bang on time (6:00 AM) while we were having our “POHA” and Tea bought from the platform. It was a very smooth pickup and acceleration. The display at both exits was reflecting up to date information about the Train/Next Station/Approximate Distance/Speed which was matching with my GPS accurately.
The compartment was approximately 70% occupied when the train left ADI and the chart showed 100% occupancy from the forthcoming stations.
A group of Sales-Executives from Nippon was sitting on the other 7 middle seats facing each other. All were jolly good fellows and were pretty excited about their company sponsored Goa Trip. 
Train crossed Nadiad and Anand Junctions on time. The food catering service by “Meals on Wheels” is very good. I must say that it’s hard to get such good tea in trains as served by the folks here with the claim to return the money if you don’t like it. (HAHA)
We reached Vadodara at 7:42 AM, late by mere two minutes but multiple times, the display and my GPS showed that train was running between 115-122 KMPH.
Bathrooms were as clean as the travellers can keep them. Soap dispenser was filled with soap though mixed with enough water still solving the purpose.
Later, the train reached all the stations on or before time. “Meals on Wheels” guys were great in offering enough choices for everyone. Cutlets, Idlis, Paranthas, Cheese Sandwiches, Veg Pulav, Khamman, Wafers, Biscuits, Tea, Coffee, Soup, Peanuts and whatnot.
Trust me, I find the quality of food better than the food served in Shatabdi though we need to pay here.
Train entered the Mumbai Suburbs before time and was stopped at Bhayandar for two-three minutes and people living in the proximity used the opportunity. We reached BVI on 12:14 PM, two minutes before time.
Was shocked to see the maddening rush from so called educated urban people to get off the train. Later I realized that as it stops here for just two minutes and most of the people get down, it always happens.
I thoroughly enjoyed my journey. I have heard lots of criticism of this train but I liked the overall experience. May be the great company with the young executives, good food and excitement of my kid made it a wonderful experience.
Comfort – 7/10 (For the other seats, it might be 5 or 6)
Food – 9/10
Punctuality – 10/10
Cleanliness – 7/10 (Water finished in washrooms after crossing Vapi)

In spite of all the criticism I have always been a great fan of this train. Have travelled a few times between ADI and ST and each journey has been a joy ride. Off course leg room is less but it makes up with the stability of coaches. Feels just a plane if you close your eyes. Speed is awesome with P5 as power. But its TT needs some changes. Should run before Surya in return journey.

Absolutely..... The pick up, acceleration and breaks are jerk free. Though, noticed a continuous crank sound at the corner exit seats in lower section. Checked it in multiple coaches and it was same.

Hi All,
My waiting ticket from ADI to BVI from Double Decker on March 18th couldn't clear and when the chart was prepared, the status was WL 7/8/9. When I tried to cancel it, I couldn't because system didn't allow me to do so.
What is the procedure to get the refund against this ticket.

Will it be refunded automatically or I need to follow some procedure?
