Confusing train. Took reservation in 54078 from DLI to MB. There is no such train as 54078 instead there is 54076 Delhi- Sitapur Passenger. The distribution of coaches are not clear. There are three Sleeper coaches with no Coach no. The coach no. is written by hand which is least visible. Sleeper coaches are randomly distributed. S1 was at the end of the train whereas S2 and S3 were near to the LOCO.

Take a star from me... the P-7 looks like it's hauling a Raj Exp Train... I was just thinking that expansion of tracks is possible on this terrain or are there some environmental concerns ? :-)

Jun 17 2014 (15:30)   'Bhaisaab, can you please exchange seats?': 10 problems an upper berth train traveller in India will understand

Jayashree ❖ Amita*^   36167 news posts
Entry# 1138054   News Entry# 180544         Tags   Past Edits
It's a feat to get railway tickets booked these days and it's an even bigger accomplishment when you manage to get lower berths! Life, however, is unkind to most of us and it is very unlikely that we will ever get the seats of our choice on a train. If you have been travelling alone for a while via Indian railways, you will know one thing for sure; nobody is going to readily exchange that upper berth with you.
Of course your bed up there is always waiting for you to crawl up and get comfortable, but the preparation to get up there is quite a task. If you've boarded the train in the middle of the night, you will mostly be
looking for a couple of centimetres under the lower berth to stuff your bag or finding a safe space to place your shoes in. There are a few typical problems you will always encounter while travelling by train.
1] You are ridiculously close to the ceiling. If you’ve travelled by sleeper class, you will know how sitting up in the middle of the journey on the upper berth often resulted in a bump on your head.
2] You have to ask which station it is every now and then: Once you’re up there, your view of the outside world is completely cut-off. Which means you will now have to rely on conversations between random uncles to figure which station it is. Or you’ll be peeping at passers-by every now and then to ask them ‘kaun sa station aaya hai bhaisaab?’
3] Nobody wants to exchange seats with you: In case you thought that family on lower berth could adjust a little and exchange seats with you, nope, that won’t happen unless you’re a really old lady who claims she has arthritis.
4] You will find your shoes in another compartment: When you get down and wake up in the morning one of your shoes will have divorced the other one and will usually be found in another corner of the compartment.
5] You’re sitting on the edge of the seat because the lower berth people are still sleeping. You have to de-board the train at 5 a.m., which means you will climb down and sit at the edge of the lower berth seat in a highly uncomfortable posture because everyone else is happily sleeping.
6] You can’t throw wrappers out of the window: Everyone is busy eating and disposing of foils and papers out of the window while you pile up all the trash next to your head, or just pass it down to someone who could help you get rid of it.
7] The fan is of no use for you: Why do they even have a fan when nobody gets to know it’s even there!
8] Kids want to go and sit on the upper berth and scream in excitement: You may be travelling alone but not the others. They are travelling with kids who are overly excited about Ben10 and Doraemon and they will keep shouting on top of their voices about them right on the berth opposite to you.
9] Take everything you need from your bag before climbing up: Okay, so you’ve finally reached up there but you’ve left your headphones in the bag down there and now there’s no way you’re going to go all the way down to fetch them. If it has to be a boring journey, let it be.
10] You constantly fear your blanket will slip off and fall to the floor: When you’re travelling by an air conditioned coach, you will carefully prepare your bed and cover yourself by a bed sheet and a blanket, waking up every few minutes to check if they are still covering you and have not fallen to the floor.

Breaking the monotone of endless slogging, consecutive all-nighters and inhumane memorization of texts which if read in depth can lead to paranormal behavior even in the most sensible chunk of the human population, I along with three of my colleagues chalked out a trip to Mohali two days after the endurance capacities of the college administrative staff for the soaring temperatures surpassed their sadistic and till-then-immortal desire of making us mark our attendance in their territories logic and reasoning irrespective.

5 minute into the planning conversation and the road was struck off as a mode of transit for the major part of the plan. Staggered, bewildered or helpless, however you picture it but after submitting to the rather ruthless denial to their "road-trip-with-my-car" idea, with a half or rather a quarter-hearted nod, Khan and Hyder limited themselves to a corner as I checked the availability for 12011 NDLS-KLK SHT and 12450 CDG-NDLS-MAO Goa SK Exp for the two legs.
Not with much delay the tickets were booked and the morning arrived where the ever-charming SSB WDS6 brought the rake in. The next five hours were about me and Shan explaining the other half about LHBs, IRY/20, sectional MPS and what not. While Khan could relate to things slightly, Hyder who last had a train journey when he was 4 years of age felt like a kindergarten kid being forced into the eighth standard. The train was running with a WCR marked DD EOG and I couldn't miss capturing it, and hence after reaching our destination Hyder accompanied me to the end of the platform where I snapped the unusual. The giggling over me clicking trains had now gone weaker as he developed a slight interest in RF. As we proceeded to the cloak room, I explained the role of bankers, EOGs and routes from CDG. It was getting fun now. I could share my RF ideas with my friends giving the whole trip an enjoyable dimension.
