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.

Every train except Rajdhani's in this section gets late.My Mahanagari exp was running late till Allahabad by just 20 minutes which is acceptable but after that we reached Varanasi late by 4 hours 20 minutes...And this is a regular scenario..

    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. Red Flags can be removed by FMs, only against specific complaints filed against the blog. This does not give all members the right to complain against EVERY single red flag they...

    -@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,...

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far. It gives me immense pleasure in congratulating them for running the team diligently, professionally, competently and above all, without a shred of controversy or bias. The FM position...
