Traveled in this train from BLS to KGP on 26.01.2015. The train was late, departed from BLS at 10:49 and reached HWH at 14:15. A fast run between BLS and KGP led to reach KGP at 12:15. On board housekeeping kept coaches clean. At KGP, the toilets and window glasses were cleaned. Soup with bread sticks was served after BLS and lunch was provided after KGP.
Lunch menu-
1. Rumali roti(2 pcs)
3. Achaar
4. Zira rice
5. Chicken curry(2 large pcs of chicken)
6. Gulabzamun(2 pcs)
7. Omfed mitha dahi

did you measure speed using gps ... any chance of increase of MPS of this shatabdi followed by speedup later ?

Thank you very much.
The food quality was not excellent, but far above the average. Amount was good. This can be an area of further improvement.

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far.
