Ok , to put it simply , I'm impressed by this website . It has everything on it. Simply everything . I was shocked to even find out some info on Microsoft train simulator troubleshooting for Indian railway mods :O.
Now this question may sound a bit absurd . But I can be absurd at times.
If I travel by train , I spend 85 % of the time looking out of the window . I have always tried to predict if the seat number is on the " opposite track" side or
on the "greenery side" . My predictions are usually not so precise. I know that there is a seat layout for each coach . But do the sides change ? For instance do the side berth windows always face one particular direction or are the coaches attached in reverse sometimes ? How do you passionate rail fanners choose your seats ? Can I get a direction chart for a coach or something ?
This is just a casual question . So , If I am asking the impossible or if this annoys you , then I suggest you leave it and proceed to more important stuff .

AFAIK, there is no particular order / fashion / direction to attach a coach.... I guess they are randomly attached....
And please dont be so formal... We have seen completely useless questions being asked and being happily replied by enthusiastic members of IRI... :)

Sir, how do you manage to do it ? Do know for sure that the side berths or the inner berths face the tracks or is it just intuitive prediction ?

i guess it is more of luck rather than any intuitive prediction. normally coaches are arranged in any random manner as deemed fit by the employees. These aesthetics are of no interest to railways.

Nope, no such facility available till now..but I guess at PRS you can request for a particular coach number, subject to the availability of seats.....
PS: I am not very sure about that also...

I am planning to travel from NZM to MAS . Is this train comfortable ? How is the food in comparison with TN , rajdhani ?
Are there actually side middle berths in this train ? Please help me as this would be a significant factor in shortlisting this train for my travel .
My priorities are food and comfort . Can anyone contrast this and rajdhani, duronto , TN for me based on these aspects according your experience ?

If you comapare the food with Tn & rajdhani, garibrath's food is totally waste. you need to arrange your own food thats the best way in garibrath. in terms of travel time its best

If your priority is food and comfort,then go for Rajdhani or Duronto.
Only plus point in garibrath is that its fare is less and its as fast as rajdhani but comfort and foodwise its not at all good.

Hi guys , I am new to this forum as a member but have been following this site for some time .
Here is the dilemma .
I want to travel from NZM to MAS and am torn between the duronto, rajdhani and TN express .
My priorities are
good food ,
2) cleanliness and
3) lesser time of travel
in order.
Which would you advise me to take . Though , I admire the fast trains , my friend has told me that MAS duronto had horrible food . Any suggestions .
Are there places to get food externally when travelling by duronto ? ( I know there are only 5 min tech halts )
Is the duronto punctual ?
Lastly , sorry for bothering you all with a long post . I am new around here
