Train departed at 23:55 from Kolkata Chitpur on 31/05/2011. Condition of coaches pretty poor. Many fans are not working and naked wires are sticking out in place of switchboards, jugaad done with insulating tapes. Only one AC coach present, no idea about it's condition. Coach S7 was horrific, like the sleeper coaches of old - no net bags or other fittings.
Getting a feeling that I should have stuck with RAC in Darjeeling Mail or Padatik. Just hoping it reaches by ten in the morning. Hoping it stays superfast because special it certainly is not!

Volvo of Royal Cruiser would have been the best.

I know about the volvos but because i have to return tomorrow itself, I chose the train journey as I would get to sleep. Also, I wanted to travel via this Asimganj line as I have never done so earlier. Anyway, i am comfortable now and enjoying the journey, just hoping it reaches by ten or eleven!

Took the Royal Cruiser Volvo for my return trip. It was really good. I was lucky to get the last ticket because of a last minute cancellation!! Destiny!!

Journey by Royal Cruiser is really comfortable. It is one of the best Volvos I have travelled so far.

This train has 3 rakes. The rake which comes from SDAH to NDLS departs from NDLS the same day. On reaching SDAH, it gets one day rest, i.e., it departs the next day from SDAH.
eg.
Day 1 dep ex Sdah
Day 2 arr NDLS

more...
2 dep ex NDLS
Day 3 arr SDAH
Day 4 dep ex SDAH again

Also,...

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far.
