Net speed avg....but few times, it is very good. If u use it at unusual slots (eg late night or early morning) u can expect a very good speed in general

For Railfanning on Kanpur-New Delhi stretch, this Rajdhani train is perfect.
Train staff is very decent and cooperative.
Just be careful of RPF and mind your and of others Safety and Comfort issues.

The Food is not what mentioned. Now it is just bare minimal. Start with a laddu/barfi, pattis/kachori, peanuts/bhujiya,tea/cofee. This is the evening snack followed by veg. soup and then dinner comprising of roti & pulao, dal, chicken curry, dahi & icecream. Sad they donot give even salad. The food which served earlier some 3-6 months back was far better than what is served now. Not worth the value of travelling in 1st AC.

It's difficult to pick a single tip category for this train. Food, speed, bedding etc- everything is good. Probably the train with highest priority in this country.
Only two negative points from pessimistic view:
*Goes into WL very fast.
*To all apart from those who think that as this has LHB rake so it does not shake its waist or who are too optimistic
...
more...
not to see any negative in LHB coaches- jerking may be a problem just like in ICF, especially when at the highest speed and crossing track joints. Please do not stand within 2 feet from open door if not holding anything. You can fall outside.
So, ultimately, this train is not for railfans.
You will find it special to see too many staffs engaged serving only one train compared to other trains.

You r right WRIK . This train is not suitable for railfanning.Firstly doorplating is quite a difficult task & secondly the windows are not suitable for night vision outside. Only in daytime the outside scenery could be seen through them .

m a frequent traveler of this train since last 2yrs.. everything was perfect until last 17th Oct when IR raised the fares n blamed it to Catering services.. the Food quality n quantity degraded since then...
n yeah... it do get jerks... dont know whats wrong with IRCTC i always get seat number 71 n any Bclass fir chahe wo B1 mile ya B9 I mean i preferred SL due to vision n privacy point of view lekin hamesa 71 number hi milta hai, n as its close to door.. n just above the wheels.. jerks jyada feel hote hain :D

Same with me, i like SL seat when traveling alone, but always gets the seat which is next to the door (no matter when i book the ticket i.e. at 8am on opening of the ticket window of travel date, or during last few availability of seats, always near the door seats be it SL/SU or one in 6 of L,M,U always next to doors), very disturbing...

so If you book the ticket from irctc their is the coach id and in that coach id you insert the coach no. B9/B7 and choose your SL berth FOR DOWN journey
and for up journey you enter the B1/B7 and Choose SL berth
