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.

    This is regarding the appointment of Monitors. For TLMs, we require a minimum of 1000 Confirmed TLs. For FMs, we require members to promise to abide by the guidelines and be free of controversies. For other Monitors, we require the member to be in good standing. . However, "eligibility" does NOT always mean...

    @all: While we do nominally allow multiple IDs, these multiple IDs are NOT allowed to engage in misuse and "mischief". Voting multiple times in the same poll using multiple IDs, rating each other IDs' blogs using multiple IDs, etc. are classified as "gross misuse". . This is an advance notice that some of the...

    @all: IRI is a PUBLIC information website, like Wikipedia. The voluntarily posted Blogs, Train/Station Tips, Train/Station Pics, Polls, Train TTs, PNRs, etc. comprise the permanent publicly viewable and searchable repository of IRI. A PUBLIC info website is unlike WhatsApp, FaceBook, Instagram, etc. where people post personal pics and other stuff, which CAN...
