Many people do their train change over and boarding-alighting at Lucknow and get confused by seeing their trains starting from two different stations-LJN & LKO. This tip will surely help those.
See the image attached. The Blue arrow shows the Lucknow Charbagh station called as "Badi Line" and is under Northern railways. The black arrow shows the Lucknow Junction station called as "Choti Line" & is under North Eastern Railway.
The Lucknow Charbagh station is a pass through station and trains doesn't need rake reversal here. But Lucknow Junction station is a
Terminal type station where Rake reversal is compulsory , as you can clearly see in the image.
Now if you have to go from Lucknow charbagh to Lucknow Station, then come outside of the LKO from Pf 1 side and from the exit which is towards CNB side (Thats because if you come out from other exit which is towards varanasi side then you will have to walk bit more.) and after coming outside , see towards LEFT hand side. You will see another building in front of you. Just go there and enter it. You will be standing at Lucknow Junction. This will hardly take 8-10 min for this change over. So if you are having a change over here at LKO/LJN , then easily 30 minutes are more than enough for Buffer (just giving example:Never keep small buffers for change over. Atleast keep 2-3 hrs buffer for all change over of trains at any station.)
This LJN station is newer as compared to LKO and has lesser options for everything, be it food or books or anything else, as compared to Lucknow Charbagh station (LKO).

If you want to cancel/book your PRS ticket of LKO mail (and some other trains) at the last time (after 8.00 pm) here is a tip for you.
Go to the Current Reservation counter which is situated at the main entry of LKO station and cancel/book your ticket. It opens till 11:00 pm.
Be careful if you ask someone for current reservation counter because most of the people there don't know and can send u to the reservation counter which is in a separate building and this will lead your time.

Lucknow retiring room -non ac snap.
No room door lock is provided. So one needs to arrange for a personal lock while going out of retiring room. Cold drinking water is available. Clean bed and pillows.
No quilt provided.
I saw 4 types of rooms. AC - SINGLE N DOUBLE
ac - single n double
I saw 2 different dormitories as well. AC N NON AC. I guess women travellers are not allowed in dormitories.
A deluxe AC Room costs about 550+ taxes <=650 at max per day or for 24 hours slot. 12 hours slot costs about 375 including taxes.
A single person can book double room as well.
Child below 5 years accommodation is free but I guess even child below 12 years which is part of same PNR is allowed in double room along with parents for free.
Extra person is allowed with some extra cost of 250 or so.
NON AC DOUBLE room costs about 375 for 24 hours slot.
Non ac room for 12 hours is about 275.
Single rooms n dormitories costs even cheaper. I don't remember the exact price but definitely cheaper than ac rooms.
Retiring room is very good option as many delhi n mumbai bound trains are during night time and hotels outside charge you for the entire night.
I wanted to catch mumbai bound kushinagar express and you know many times it gets delayed by couple of hours. Standing at the Lucknow platform can give you nightmares if you are traveling with family n kids. By using dormitory ; you get comfortable bed n much deserved sleep as well.

Doesn't seem to be much of a tip since it doesn't help the user in much cases either. Also much information is outdated considering Aishbag MG is being phased out and Lucknow Swarna Shatabdi has been shifted to LJN.
