BENGALURU: Chaos prevailed at Yeshwantpur railway station on Wednesday as over 200 passengers who had come to board a 7.15pm Bengaluru-Secunderabad Garib Rath learnt that the train had left at 1.30pm.
The departure time for the special tri-weekly had been

advanced to 1.30pm "a few days ago". Railway authorities claimed they informed passengers about the change through IRCTC website, but didn't clarify when the change took effect.
Indiarailinfo.com said the new timing kicked in on Wednesday. Amruth Raj and many other passengers bore the brunt of communication mix-up. They said they hadn't received any communication on the new timing.
Boards still show old timing at station:
A mruth, a civil engineer from Marathahalli, arrived at Yeshwantpur railway station around 7pm, 15 minutes before what he thought was the train's departure time. "I saw a huge crowd of passengers at the station. I learnt from them that the train had left at 1.30pm. I was confused. A lot of us rushed to the enquiry counter. Officials confirmed the change in departure time. We met the station master and other officials, but they kept mum," he told TOI.
Adding to the trouble was the display board at the station which showed the departure time as 7.15pm. "How can the railways claim they have changed the timing and intimated passengers," said Shivakumar R, 35, a resident of Shivananda Circle, near Malleswaram. Shivakumar and his three family members were headed to Secunderabad on an urgent family work.
Around 7.45pm, railway officials told TOI that the passengers will be accommodated in a special coach to be added to the Sampark Kranti Express, leaving for %Delhi at 11pm. The train stops at Secunderabad. The stranded passengers weren't aware of this development until TOI broke the news to them. Immediately, they rushed to the counters to get their tickets changed.

We departed LNL at around 15 17
TRIP REPORT
.
Presenting a Trip Report from PUNE-CSTM, trip done on Thursday 15.01.2015 on Makar Sankranti Day. The reason to undertake trip to CSTM was this . Accordingly, booked a ticket one day prior to the date of journey with some 90 odd seats available in 2S Class, but did not get a window seat. My worst fears came true when the system allotted me seat no 80 in D4. So what’s so special about seat no 80? Well its the middle seat and a strong and muscular guy like me would have to make all sorts of manouvres and yoga positions to accommodate myself in between the 2 co-passengers. :P
.
...
Read more...
Anyways, reached the station at around 14.30, about 1 hr prior to the departure of my train. The rake of my train which arrives as 11007 from CSTM stays on PF-4 right till 15.30, the time of scheduled departure of 11008. On that particular day, it was parked on PF-5 instead of its usual PF-4, for the reasons best known to station authorities. A few passengers had already made themselves comfortable in the GEN coaches, to avoid the mad scramble for seats later on. A PUNE WDM-3D shunted the rake of 19311 PUNE-INDB Express onto PF-1. Soon, a 22702 BRC WAP-4E took charge of the train. In the meanwhile, PUNE-NZB Passenger departed with PUNE WDG-4 and so did a few EMUs. The loco assigned for our train was 21861 KYN WCAM-2P “Balwant”, which was making its way from the Trip Shed to take charge of our train. It is the first ever WCAM-2P loco which was earlier homed by WR at BL and has had the privilege of hauling BCT Rajdhani. The empty train soon filled up to its capacity. The charts were pasted. A quick look at the charts suggested that I had the LUXURY of window seat (and space :P) only upto SVJR, as my co-passenger would board there. The “TO” column on the chart calmed down my nerves, as one of them was going to deboard at KYN and yhe other at TNA. At 15.20, PUNE-INDB departed, 11030 Koyna Express arrived on PF-4 behind 40016 KJM WDP-4B. We got the starter at 15.30 bang and Balwant set rolling.
.
With the next halt barely 2-3 kms away, the train did not go above 50-60 kmph and arrived at SVJR. Whatever empty seats were now taken up now. My co-passenger arrived and my ordeal began!! I folded my hands in order to make some space for myself and the position was quite successful for me in alleviating the trouble. The train picked up speed, only to stop at KK again for 2-3 mins. 16339 CSTM-NCJ Express crossed us here. We departed KK and the trian continued its run, but did not touch 100. The speedo was hovering in the range of 80-90 only max. Soon we crossed 17031 CSTM-HYB Express and arrived at TGN at 16.30, 20 mins late. A few unreserved passengers boarded from here and stood near the door, but surprisingly the number was just 3-4. The rest of the coach carried only reserved passengers.
.
The vendors were doing their rounds of offering snacks, which included Cutlets, Omelettes, Sandwiches, Idli, Medu Wada, Bhel, Guavas, Tea, Coffee, Bournvita, Biscuits and soft drinks. The addition to this menu was at LNL with the sounds of “Chikki Chikki Lonavala Chikki” echoing all over the train and PF. We departed LNL at around 17.03, around 25 min late and had a customary halt at PF-2 of KAD for brake testing. On PF-1 was 11009 Sinhagad Express. The descent downhill the Bor Ghats begun on a sombre note, with the train halting at Monkey Hill again for brake testing. With a green from the controllers, the train set on its course to descent the mighty Ghats without any interruptions. The descent was smooth and the train maintained its speed of 50-60 kmph, adhering to the MPS of 60 kmph. The sights of the valleys and tunnels aroused the bored passengers. Having descended the Ghats, KJT welcomed us at around 18.00, 30 min behind schedule.
.
KJT meant one thing - Diwadkar Wada Pav, with sights and smells of freshly fried wadas invigorating the senses. Many passengers savoured this delicacy here. Post KJT, the run upto CSTM was fantastic, as if the loco too had energized itself after the bite of Wada Pav!! What was a crawler train upto KJT became a cracker and starting furiously galloping at MPS in order to make up lost time. The train crushed the likes of NRL, BUD, ABH to arrive at PF-7, KYN around 18.40, 20 min late, having covered 10 mins of delay. Had a wonderful parallel run into KYN with 11056 Godaan Express hauled by ET WAM-4. Many passengers got down here and I got a much needed respite from doing YOGASANAS in sitting posture. I shifted onto window seat here. As with entry, at exit too we had a parallel run with a Container rake hauled by a GMO WAG-9 which was moving towards BSR. The MPS run continued, hurtling past the suburban stations at MPS with a sizeable crowd watching our train skip in awe. Departed from TNA around 15 mins late and from DR around 5 mins late. Balwant, true to his name, showed his power and class helped with a bit of slack. Post DR, there were just 2 passengers in my coach. The train continued its blast post DR, all the way upto Masjid. Numerous rakes could be seen taking rest in the yard. The rake of NGP Duronto was being shunted onto PF-18 of CSTM. Finally at 19.40, the train made its way onto PF-13, where the WCAM-3 of AMI SF on PF-12 welcomed us cheerfully with a honk!! :-)

It was hard to convince my father to book in First AC for our Diwali trip to Kerala.

clothes. Quickly packed and set off to LTT by my car with my parents and brother. Reached LTT at 7 45, quite early owing to lack of traffic. LTT was full with passengers for other trains like Guwahati, Jnaneshwari and LTT Shalimar. We slowly started moving towards platform no. 3, from where our train was scheduled to depart. We made ourselves comfortable at a bench beneath the indicator which showed 'H1'. There was hustle bustle in pur adjacent platform, where Netravati arrived at 8 15, late by around 2 hrs.
.
At around 8 40, our train was slowly shunted into the platform. The WDS 6 Kurla shed hauled the king to the platform. The train was super clean from the outside. The first thing that caught my attention was that apart from our H1 coach, all the other coaches were Duronto liveried. Only H1 had the Rajdhani livery. That itself made me happy.On entering the coach, we searched for our A cabin and quickly settled in the cabin. The coach was a 2010 RCF make. It was clean and smelled fantastic. Kudos to the CR
housekeeping. Though I must admit that the coach interiors were not as clean as the TVC Raj H1 in which I had travelled in May 12. Nonetheless, it was not at all bad.
.
At around 9, the train departed, nearly 10 mins late. It was crawling till Kanjurmarg, after which the train started cruising at does over 80. In the meanwhile, the TTE came and checked our tickets. A well dressed person came to our cabin to great us and take
orders for dinner ( not included in fare) and breakfast next morning. We had our sumptuous homemade dinner and slept as all of us were quite tired.
.
After a sound sleep, I got up at 7 30, and was greeted with bed tea along with some biscuits and some toffees. The cups provided were of a good quality and felt premium. At sharp 9, we were served breakfast. In veg., there were two options, cutlets and
upma. We had ordered 3 upmas and one cutlet. The breakfast was excellent. In the meanwhile, Duronto was cruising at speeds over 90 kmph and reached Madgaon before schedule.
.
After the breakfast, we watched a brilliant malayalam movie in our laptop. The movie got finished by 12 30, after which we all took a short nap. At 12 50ish, the tomato soup along with bread sticks were served. The taste was too good. After the soup course, followed the main course, which consisted of phulkas, a paneer gravy, a potato dry vegetable along with dal, dahi and jeera rice.
The taste was fabulous. It was a pleasure to have the phulkas, a great substitute to the rubbery parantas served on most other trains in the same route. It felt as if I was having food in some plush restaurant serving tasty food. The main course was followed by ice creams.

After a heavy lunch, I felt really sleepy and climbed up to the upper berth and slept. At around 3 pm, got a wake up call from the catering staff saying that the train was running before schedule and that it was expected to reach Kozhikode by 3 45. We quickly got ready for alighting. ( Kindly note that monsoon timings were effective during that period). At sharp 3 45, the train chugged into Kozhikode. We safely alighted.

It was one of the most exciting and fast train rides in my life. But, due to tiredness, I spent most of the time sleeping. The remaining time was spent eating food. Hence, couldnt enjoy the nature's beauty in this trip. Another notable thing was that the staff don't ask for tips in this train.
.
Overall a very nice trip. Food wise, this was my best train trip to date. The good served is much of an attraction for foodies like me. However, there interiors need to be kept cleaner.

P.S. The trip was completed in October. However, due to professional commitments, couldn't post this review until date, though I had promised to post the same once in October and then in December. I apologize for the delay caused.

AC LOUNGE
.
Arrived in Madgaon, need to relax and take a bit of rest? AC Lounge is where you should be!!
.
Madgaon has a wonderful AC Lounge operated by Konkan Railway. It is situated on PF-1, near the main exit. Charges are Rs. 25 for 2 hrs and Rs. 35 for 4 hours. Extension in time is available. The attendant was extremely polite and helpful, he asked for my ticket, noted my PNR number and IN time and issued me the ticket. He then asked me to wait for 15-20 minutes since cleaning was going on. An excellent job done by the cleaning staff, the lounge was spick and span with good

cooling. The washroom was clean and the dry area near wash-basin had liquid soap. I was lucky enough to have this entire lounge all to myself!!

Kudos to KR for this superb facility, other zones might do well to follow KR's footsteps.
