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
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..
