For the 20th time, reminding myself that this train doesn't have pantry. Carry your own lunch. Also, railways might never ever learn to make tea, so carry your own thermos full of tea too.

Now e.catering is not helpful ?
many caterers book and supply food as per your requirements at your seat/berth... travelkhana, khanagadi, railrestro etc.

when u come out of station for auto/taxi with luggage, travel by meter only because there are some auto/taxi wala who don't go by meter n say there own fare for travel.
If you go by meter it will be cheap as compare to their own price because if by meter fare is 10 Rs (example) they will tell you 30 Rs. as their own price.
so also go by meter only n ask first will u go by meter? if yes den go ahead n if no search for other auto/taxi.

This is true and helpful only if one knows the route... else auto will 'ghumao and firao' trip
But there are exceptions to this also...
Once I wanted to board an auto from suburban Ghatkpar to my destination, and it was so near but not a walk able distance also ... so initially three autos stopped and refused... but fourth came and said Yes... I asked him how much 'he said by meter... I asked him how much .. he again said meter... then I stopped asking and got into auto... when
i got down and paid him it was mere 13 rupees. I paid him 15. and was walking away... but he called me and said . take your 2 rupees...
and he refused to keep that 2 also...
and he zoomed out ...
I was also walking to my destination , silently praising him...

All 6 rakes of KK exp and SBC-MAS-SBC Mail comprise of coaches manufactured in the last 3-4 years and 98% of reserved coaches (SL,3AC,2AC,1AC) have charging points in each bay as a result. Even the older ones are POHed ones and they too have charging points in each bay. Only around 2 or 3 coaches among the 114 (19*6 rakes) do not have charging points so go ahead and test your luck :)
P.S: SWR does shuffle coaches here and there sometimes and the replacement ones too are newer ones having charging points in each bay.

On the other hand there's SR. TVC Mail. MAQ Mail. Nilagiri. Kaveri. TN. GT. None of the biggies have any traces of charging points. The discussion doesn't even go to the low priority ones.

ICF dishes out so many coaches to SR every month but God knows where those go. Last week I saw Kerala's rake at AGC and some of the SL coaches were new.. was a pleasant surprise.

2626's all six rakes have been revamped in the last 4 years. TVC divn has invested all the fresh roll-out it received in changing it's rakes. While what's left with other trains like Thirukkural, DDN KCVL and the like are old rickety shabby coaches. PGT divn is poor as ever receiving all the rejected ones. BBQ is infamous as the one stealing all that SR gets, but where does the stolen stuff go? Poof.

Station is clean but waiting room on PF1 is not good. There was stinking smell from toilets. There are 2 Amul stalls on PF1 where one can get Amul products like flavoured milk and ice cream. On PF3 there are couple of stalls were one can get some snacks, water bottle, etc.
Retiring rooms are on 1st floor. We had booked room 8 (AC) online but did not find it good. We checked room of some other passenger (room no 3 - Non AC) which was good.
Only single FOB available at the
end of platform opposite in the direction of Chittaurgadh.

Delhi Darbar restaurant just outside pf 1. Other good restaurants like Natraj, Gordhan Thal are at a walkable distance (max 10 minutes). They can be see from train when train reaches UDZ. We tried Rajasthan Dal Bati in Natraj Restaurant (2nd floor) and sweet pan (ground floor). It was great. Unfortunately could not try thali (1st floor) or Gordhan Thal restaurant.
Natraj does not serve south indian dishes.
