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..................:)

    As announced previously, there are a few changes coming to IRI user accounts, based on past practices. 1. As before, you will be able to quickly DELETE your IRI User account at ANY time. However, the menu option for this was hidden in the profile page, and could not easily be located....

    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...

You may add ANY PNR to your bookmarks through the "Add Bookmark" link in the...
