No need to run for bedding. There's enough for everyone
I travel by this train multiple times (twice a month atleast) ...and i always wait & relax until all the people are done flocking & grabbing their piece... and i simply walk up to the guy & pickup mine. Try this ... and it ALWAYS WORKS. (regardless of whether i bought the bedding already or not) Its just that this "competing" mentality is so in-built in us Indians (sadly) that we rarely believe in abundance. There's more than enough. Every day, when this train reaches its final stop, the attendants unload a few big bags of unused/new bedding.

The person who is distributing the beddings is happy because, he need not go to the seats to dump the beddings. Hence he encourages people to come over to him and collect it. Somebody has to take a lead in informing people to go to their seats and instruct the care taker to distribute the beddings at the berths.

Yesterday night I boarded this train at Rajahmundry. No attender was there to find. I waited for 20mins and Train was 40mins Late. So, It was 30mins past 12. I went to see him and to My Surprise there are several Passengers who are in Rush to get Bedrolls.

    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. Red Flags can be removed by FMs, only against specific complaints filed against the blog. This does not give all members the right to complain against EVERY single red flag they...

    -@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...
