No one seems to have noticed or appreciated a small but very important announcement in the Rail Budget... Mr Prabhu announced that there will be 2 more factories of Locomotives created for production of next Generation locos... which will have a Toilet facility inside... what a great relief to poor loco drivers who have been suffering for such a simple and valid demand for decades...
Salute to Mr Prabhu for attention provided to the details which will help the very basic and important factor of journey, The Loco driver, thus enhancing the safety as well...

Any idea about the quality of eCatering services available in this train...
Images look quiet good however not sure about the quality of food being served... can anyone suggest/share their experiences about ecatering in general or on this train ?

Worst Experience... The coach is attached at the end (after all general coaches)... all the rush for General coaches pours in and it is already packed to capacity... No TC shows up during entire journey as it is not connected internally to other coaches.... No PC and no food from local vendors available being an isolated coach... Only 1 charging point available in coach, that too not functioning... Cleanliness is poor and coach is quiet old too...
return journey (11039 SLIP from DD-NGP) is very noisy since the coach follows the Loco immediately...
Advise:
...
more...
better to try for Routine booking for DD-G instead of traveling by this coach...

Yes. You approach chief reservation supervisor at your nearest PRS counter with a print out of your ticket, copy of your ID card (and original for verification) and a written application. They would do the needful

Total available seats are shown only as 28 and 3 in Tatkal... for a typical sleeper coach there are 72 positions available. Wondering where did the rest of seats go in reservation?

But this is a Slip coach dedicated for Solapur passengers. For Bhsawal/Manmad entire train is available. Why to reserve in Slip coach itself ?

you are right... in fact 50% quota is reserved for Gondia-Nagpur section (GNWL) and 50% for Nagpur to BSL/MMR section....
I wanted to book a confirm ticket from AK- SUR... it was showing waitlisted (RLWL)... but i checked again after reading your answer and found that GNWL still had seats available...
booked a confirmed ticket from ITR to SUR with Boarding stn as AK... thanks a lot for providing a very important hint...

What are the improvements experienced by common people and everyday travellers since Mr Suresh Prabhu has taken over ?
Is there a significant change in the user experience ?
what are the hopes that we can keep with new Railway Minister and Mr Modi ?

I don't know if its due to Mr. Prabhu or not, but for the last few months, I've actually been able to successfully book tatkal tickets at IRCTC! That has never happened earlier...

I am curious when they will put all 2S reserved coaches back together for this train... whenever I travel in this train it always reminds me of our flawed IR system where CC coaches can be sandwiched in between 2S reservation coaches.... Just becoz some high profile politician who was also serving as Home Minister in UPA govt, was too lazy to walk a few meters and always wanted to have the CC bogie right in front of the SUR station Exit...
still the same thing continues...
Even today when you

have some big gun traveling in CC, vendors and passengers are not allowed to cross CC bogey from D6 to D5 or vice versa...

the reason is platform no. 1 doesn't have enough shed for passengers standing for CC coaches..... hence instead of building shed on platform no. 1 they sandwiched CC coaches between 2S!
thsi thing is from years together, I am regular commuter in Indrayani CC and this sandwich thing is since May 2014

They could well have placed CC coaches after all the 2S coaches which would mean that CC coaches would come near the Main FOB on Platform 1... but What i heard from railway employee from SUR division that Mr Shinde while travelling from Pune to SUR had to walk some distance on feeet when station was already overcrowded. he was not Happy and hence asked railway officials to change the Coach position of CC coach ....

Yup WDG locos can haul passenger trains but MPS restricted to 105 to 110 km/hr.
