Remember, this train has no pantry. (I am saying this as if, all trains with pantry serve good food & all the food that needs to be given as per IRCTC menu, is indeed served - I have seen NONE, so far) And this train is NOT at all recommended for Long Distance travel. I traveled in this train on Oct 12, 2015 from KUR to TPTY, and from there I was bound to reach Bangalore by road. I was duped at many places for food enroute.
A) Firstly, BEWARE of a vendor on-board, who sells cashew nuts (or any and many other things seasonally), somewhere before/after GUDUR Jn. The packet mentions 1 KG Net Content, but it is indeed less than
450 grams. And then all the CASHEWS visible from outside seem good - but once you open the packet, every single NUT inside is spoilt - rotten. And the A/c coaches are full of Railway employees - right from KUR to TPTY - and one of the railway employees actually helped me (rather the vendor, whom he, perhaps, knows since years) to negotiate a good price to buy these BAD cashews. I had to empty all that into the dustbin.
B) DO NOT TRUST THE IN-HOUSE COACH attendant - who says he will get you good food from outside - all the food he gets from outside is of Average quality and he charges 300% extra to cater to his personal food and/or alcoholic/tobacco needs.

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...
