hi guys. i travelled on the inaugural run of train no. 11081 LTT- GORAKHPUR EXP upto varanasi on 18/02/2015. as it was the first run of this train i was expecting new coaches for the rake. but to my surprise thefull rake consisited of old coaches. the 2AC coach i was travelling in was of the year1993 ( 22 years old). the upholstry was worn out & the bedsheets & pillow covers given were not washed properly. the toilets did not have hooks on the door ( inside ). the soap dispenser was empty & the taps in toikets wre leaking continuously.
now the punctuality part. the train started on time from LTT ( 15. 50PM ) & REACHED BHUSAWAL in a

respectable 6hrs 40 min. i.e 22. 30 hrs ( 426 kms @ 65km per hour avg speed ). surprisingly the run from Bhusawal to Khandwa ( 125 kms approx ) is given a running time of 3hrs 30 min ( avg 37 kms per hr ). but the train reached KNW JN at 01. 00 hrs ( full 1 hr before time ). this scenario continued till mirza pur where also the train reached half an hr before time i.e 18. 25 hrs. but from Mirza pur to Varanasi was a horrible 4 hrs journey which should normally have been covered in 2 hrs. The train ultimately reached Varanasi 1 1/2 hrs late.

    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...

We shall soon be introducing a dedicated app called "Rail Messenger" for both Android and iOS, for all blogging/messaging purposes. The app...

    @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...

    This is a clarification to all members regarding our Forum Guidelines and the FM Group. SWs are issued for very clear cases of abuse and misbehaviour by a member. . At this time, we have had many members against whom SW is issued claim that: "I am a long-time member of IRI, and have...
