When rake cleanliness, maintenance and availability of proper catering is the topic of discussion, three trains of Northern Railways, Delhi division are significantly aweful:
14003/04 NDLS-MLDT-NDLS Exp
22403/04 NDLS-PDY-NDLS Exp
14035/36 Dhauladhar Exp
features of these trains (applies mostly to sleeper class):
1) Availability of catering is dubious. Though Dhauladhar doesn't need it but absence of catering in NDLS-PDY is a torcher. Similarly though NDLS-MLDT claims to have catering, I, at times found it missing. Plan accordingly. Bring your own food.
2) Toilets. HORRIBLE. No cleanliness, nothing. (Now I can't even say bring your own toilet)
3) Designation of coach numbers is not proper. The coach that says 'S5' may not be 'S5'. The coach on which the chart of S5 is stuck is S5. Frustration inducing negligence at its apex, isn't it?
4) Rakes are extremely dirty and ill-maintained.
5) Charging points: Well after reading point 1 through point 4, you're intelligent enough to predict. If you get one, you're one of the lucky chosen ones.

Agreed Hands Down But Dhauladhar Express is Still Much Much Better Than These Two Trains..................:)

    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,...
