Travelled in the Sleeper Class on 20th Sept.. The Coach condition was less than average. Toilets were very stinky I must say at first, although there was a care taker being alloted for it but he only managed to remove the dust & stink of the walking section & the passages of the boogie.
So the coach condition, very noisy, dusty, and noddy (when the train travels fast). Food-Egg, Egg & Egg,you'll get only this if you've opted for non-veg section.. Egg Curry with dal,rice & roti along with pickle(the best part) and curd.. Everything was decent as you can expect from a railway lunch & dinner but the other day, the food taken from Renigunta,rice was of poor quality, dal tasteless.
...
more...
Staffs were just ok in it, 1 or 2 helpful other wise just doing there duty as fast as they can & then gone.
Thank you for your time. Good Bye

The dynamic brake resistor of the WAP4 was inside the cabin when it was intially made, then later the resitors where shifted to the top of the loco and these locos whose dynamic brake resistor where shifted to the top where called WAP4E. Later they shifted DBR of all the locos to the top and this class was abolished as all the WAP4s have thier DBR on its top.

So I've travelled in both the Rajdhanis i.e 12301 Kolkata Rajdhani & 12314 New Delhi-Sealdah Rajdhani. & I just want to say one thing that Kolkata Rajdhani is slightly better than NDLS-SDAH Rajdhani.
Here are the reasons why
1.You get Wi-fi access & its a big timepass after it gets dark.
2.Public announcement systems are frequent + display in Kol Raj
3.I

know its silly, but you get frooti in Kolkata Rajdhani instead Nimbu Paani in ndls-sdah rajdhani.
4.When the train comes at Stn the door of toilets are all shut & the passengers remove the sanitizing tags while in Sdah Raj the door all open although both are sanitized.
5.The roti I got in Sdah Raj were stale I guess.
6.Lastly the coach condition of SDAH Raj were a li'l old I guess coz whenever the train used to stop for signals not at station I used to feel more jerking from it than in Kol Raj.
7.The staffs on Sdah Raj were a li'l annoying with the bakshish, they forced everybody to pay & also were in hurry & careless.
Otherwise, Security, punctuality, Comfort, AC, Toilets & all. They were all good

You are right. HWH Raj is better than SDAH Raj. Wifi is a major plus point along with cleanliness of bogies and toilets. Pantry service is too good in HWH Raj.

After the recent fare hike Indian Railways is earning profit I guess..coz at the early fiscal till march it was estiamted to earn 63k crores..then why isnt that money utilised properly instead of wasting the look & beauty of trains.. Same thing happens with our kolkata Metro, its like 5 out of 10 new rakes are full of ads outside,looks bad. Thank God the new lines are to be maintained by KMRC & not by Indian Railways, lazy people..

I won't say much as this is a public forum, but the point of view has changed post this budget. Railways is no more perceived as a "necessity" to the masses. Its more of a 'source of income' for the government. Slashing down the four hour time limit for refund on RAC/WL to an inhumane two, the reduction in TDR filing time slots, are just a few examples justifying the truth.
