Take your own food AND water, to last you the entire 24 hour journey. Do NOT depend on the so-called "catering" service in this train.
Catering is technically "available", but the food is positively HORRIBLE, and catering service is sparse. Thick, unhealthy, oily, INEDIBLE pooris are provided. Tea is undrinkable, luke-warm AND expensive (Rs. 10).
service inside the train is also horrible. He will come take orders for Breakfast, lunch and dinner. If you miss him, that's it!!! He will NOT come again. No one ELSE will ever come again, asking if you need water.
Especially, please take AMPLE supply of water with you, for the whole journey.
I came by AC 1st class from CSTM to SBC, but my experience was overall THIRD CLASS.
Needless to say, avoid this train if you have other alternatives.

100% agree. I traveled in 1AC last year and was shocked to find the state of it even before it was transferred to CR. Read my comments here: /blog/post/840671/2
First AC travel is no longer as comfortable as it used to be. I have experienced people holding SL class tickets, visiting their friends in 1AC and even secretly sleeping in the cabins (sharing berths) after night-fall!
Have even seen people traveling with large dog in cabin, creating terror and nuisance to co-passengers in trains such as Rajdhani. Read here: /blog/post/1033228/6

Travel SAFE

1. RailFanning does NOT MEAN dangerous pics/videos.
2. Doorplating pics/youtube videos are strictly FORBIDDEN in IRI.
3. Take plenty of food pics and other safe pics.
4. Write human interest narratives to make the pics interesting.
5. Enjoy blogging and travelling SAFELY.

REMEMBER: YOUR LIFE is the most precious thing, NOT RailFanning.

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
