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

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    A minor update, but may impact many members: Hereafter, FMs will be able to delete invalid Red Flags on Imaginary trains.

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far. It gives me immense pleasure in congratulating them for running the team diligently, professionally, competently and above all, without a shred of controversy or bias. The FM position...
