While travelling in AC 1st class of this train, as an Elderly passenger, I was pleasantly surprised to see a "Full Staircase" leading to the Upper Berth. I am not sure if this is offered in all trains, but I am seeing this for the first time. A welcome improvement.

I just received an SMS from DM-IRS-MSA on my phone that my departure from Bangalore has been cancelled today "due to unavoidable circumstances". What should I do now? This is an e-ticket. Do I have to cancel it? Will they auto-cancel it? Will they re-allot me on another train? Do I have to make another booking?
Pl. reply. urgent. Thx.

Island express(CAPE-SBC) derailed near Jolarpettai...Best option for you is to take bus. Even if night trains depart, tickets are not available. Situation for tomorrow unpredictable..

Automatic refund of fare on e-tickets in case of cancellation of trains (Already implemented w.e.f. 01.07.2015). No TDR filing is required in this case.

You have to come out of PF 1 for taxis. And there is a lot of climbing to do. The moment your rajdhani arrives on the PF, you will be swarmed by porters and you can take their help.

No. You gotta climb the FOBs for all platforms except PF#01. But you'll easily get porters there.
