But they charge more for food stuff as compared to PCs in 11019/ 11020 Konark Exp where charges are fair. In Konark & Gandhidham Exp both catered by E Co Rly. Less takers are there for food in GIMB Exp seen Some outside vendors also do brisk business in 18501 but not in Konark Exp observed

Yes It was night I was eager to get out to Surat Retiring Room (RR) booked & I have erred. The train halted on PF 1 at Surat. Getting to RR was difficult climbing two floors of the old bldg which is equal to 4 floors in new bldgs The old lift was not working. The RR personnel made me get down to take endorsement on my RR Resv Slip fm Enquiry Counter which was flooded with passengers. At last I got signature fm the Enq Staff at 0005 hrs (Nov 29) & climbed to RR again. Now-a-days as passengers reserve RRs online, the Station Staff at Stns where computers break down do not give RRs to passengers without prior RR bookings as they are not aware if the vacant RRs are booked by someone else or not . To be on the safeside, they allow the RRs to remain vacant...
so that if anyone comes with prior computer prints they allow.

No CR has issued one Can we assume certain days CR runs it and rest EcoR to make it a daily one If I am correct we get chance to compare condition Cleanliness of rakes.
