The train was maybe delayed due to the fog in North India and about the bathroom issue you could have sent a photo to the authorities via WhatsApp,Facebook or Twitter they would have surely responded.
Making First time journey to Bangalore? Or first time in this train!!!
Oh! Dont worry about food if dont like pantry Stuff for long duration or if pantry seems costly, this train will serve ur appetite too.. Dont be sad even if u forgot to pack food in Nzm due to hurry. Let ur taste birds enjoy the diff taste offrd by route.

Excellent Tip..Full marks from my side..Its very useful for those travelling first time to Bangalore in this train..I recommend everyone to go through this blog before starting your journey.
Bhai bahut dino baad kisine khane pe itna zyada detail diya hai thanks!!!!
One of the best tip I've read and ill go through this tip when I take a trip in this route or train
Now THIS is some frustrating stuff in all SWR overnight trains, no matter how good the projected intentions behind this are. And they do take this thing seriously. So it is advisable NOT to leave your homes/offices with discharged gadgets!
PS: Strangely this does not apply to non-AC coaches.
This is to prevent short circuit and save people from burning to death while sleeping. I would say good move from SWR.
I traveled in this train last week nd Now all charging points work even after 22:00 (ac class)
This is one of the dirtiest Sampark Kranti i have boarded on 5th June from Hz Hazrat Nizamuddin till Yeshwanthapur, I was with my family in 3AC and as the train proceeded towards its destination the train started getting dirtier with all kind of filth from chips wrappers to tea cups, and till last there was no cleaning staff available to clean, toilets were full shits as the automatic exit system in toilets were not working, toilets were stinking like hell and there were no one to listen, when i demanded the complaint book i was denied by giving silly reasons. so my dear fellow passengers be ready to embrace the filth and stinks.

Pantry food provided by Comesum foods pvt ltd.
Veg meal is value for money, however a bit costly. Egg biryani is nothing but rice with egg curry.
1. Veg meal (2 Paratha, 1 bowl good quality rice, 1 yellow dal, 1 matar paneer, 1 spicy veg curry, 1 papad) @100/-
Omelette/Cutlet with sauce sachet, bread & butter: 49/-
Veg meal provided has some times dry vegetable in place of veg curry.
Extra paratha (2) can be taken on payment of Rs 15.
Beware Passengers catering people are not disclosing the actual menu that is provided by the railways which costs Rs50/- only but instead the say menu is for Rs 102/-. These catering people are making money from passengers ignorance about this menu rate. Rs 50/- meal is called standard or Saada meal and contains "Dal,Chawal,Roti,Sabji,water" and Rs 100/- Meal is called Special and it contains " Dal,chawal,Roti and one worst special sabji", I do not think it is worth paying Rs 100/- , Veg noodles is worst for Rs 40/- you feel like puking after eating it.
So my advise carry your own food and have a safe and healthy journey " this was my experience on 5th June journey in this train".
when i traveled in 12649 from kcg to jhs in peak summers the pantry car people were charging 20 for water bottle...then a group of students at BPQ got in the pantry car and started pulling the chain of the train , utlimately the pantry staff caretaker had to return the money of water bottle to so many pax ..also we wer given chicken thali in 90 rs and same was being served to ignorant pax at 130 rs ...they loot in this train ..
