Earlier years, the train 01067/01068 was operated through the same root but extended upto Tirunelveli. This time, this train stopped at Kochuveli. SR has no idea to give any special train to Tamil Nadu people. It always give preference to the people from Kerala.

bombaythanatrain1853.jpgAbout 157 years ago the first passenger train ran in India between Bori Bunder in Bombay and Thane. On the 16th of April, 1853 in a 14 carriage long train drawn by 3 locomotives named Sultan, Sindh and Sahib. It was around 21 miles in length and took approximately 45 minutes. Ever since the first run the Indian Railways have been a booming industry. Today as we celebrate it's first run let us remember the efforts put in by the people of our country to make the railways a successful one. The picture alongside shows the first passenger train in India and is taken from Wikipedia.

Luggage helpers with trollies carry luggage from any part of the station to any other part at a very minimal rate. So it is advised not to take help from the porters wearing red clothes as they charge exorbitantly.

Chayan , senior citizens like me have found this arrangement to be extremely useful . And what is more gratifying is that one of the co-sponsors of this initiative are my ex-employers , the STATE BANK OF INDIA :)

Think twice before purchasing a ticket for this train. The toilets don't have water connections. (at least it didn't when I went.)

Apart from railway catering by IRCTC (Jan ahaar) there are two food courts, one in the old complex (operated by monginis) & the other in the new complex (operated by comesum). The monginis one is better.

you would have got full fare if this train was cancelled.but since you cancelled your ticket before this train was cancelled you cannot claim full refund.you will be refunded fare minus clerkage charges(cancellation charges).

When you go to buy tickets for shatabdi exp. from a prs counter & the ticket booking clerk writes your food option as non-veg instead of veg can it be corrected after boarding the train?

dont you worry sir. as pkv sir has rightly said, its nt an issue. as soon as u board the train, the attended will again come to you and ask your food choice for each meal. you can also vary your choice...say b/fast veg, lunch non veg, etc.

darjeelingmailtrain.jpgJust a recapitulation of the old darjeeling mail which ran through Sealdah-Ranaghat-Bheramara-Hardinge Bridge-Iswardi-Santahar-Hili-Parabtipur- Nilphamari-Haldibari-Jalpaiguri-Siliguri(Now most of the places being in Bangladesh it runs through it's present route). It is true that this train has a history dating bagk to more than 100 years & we must keep to it.
