it was suggested on the blog that SLR coaches on Jansadharan Trains also function as ladies general compartments . Is this true ? Does SLR also stands for "Special Ladies Rake" ? .... How can women travellers,luggage, parcels and freight , all fit into the same compartment ? are there seats and berths?

earlier times (even now), platforms are for people and luggages are loaded in end of platforms ie. ends (front and back) of train... think of situation if luggages, parcels are in the middle of platform and passengers at end of stations ??? earlier times, full Luggage Room coaches (even now found in goods train, long distance trains...) were made ... later, when luggages/ goods parcels are not so much (ie trains of short distances) and luggage rooms were nearly empty but passengers coaches are packed, half of the luggage room is given seater facility ie. SLR coaches are made ...

i was traveling by 14208 in A1 on 24.07.14 from DLI to LKO . The admirers/fans of Padmavat Exp would be surprised to know that this was one of my most unpleasant rail journey as far as i remember. Side Lower berth at different levels (my back is still paining) , no pillow covers , used bed sheets , no towel , bathroom door broken, a passenger had to be pulled out of a jammed door , the attendant dozing-off .... all this in A1 ... imagine the plight of others. SAD , VERY SAD. Someone should be held accountable .
