Started from VSKP on 11th this month. train was ready on PF-8 when i came to station at 18.20. Coach is B4 (12120/C). Train left at 18.59 as per station time. Loco LGD WAP-7 with dusty face. Coach exterior except glasses of windows are not clean. (Section wise Tips also Posted separately).
1. Bottle Cooler is 100% non-Working as Door is always open (Latch broken and tied it with a small Rope).
2. wash basin near wash room is leaking while any one wash their face/Hands so Coach entrance is always Wet.
And it is a big problem for seat no's 1 to 16 as those are near to Doors.
3. Coach inside cleaning is OK. (Above Average but not too good may be due to RSA this was not properly cleaned)
4. Toilets are OK cleaning with water. but pressure is low.
5.Speed is low crawled up to DVD and after that never touched 80+ also up to BZA. Maintained 25-30 mints delay till TDD. (I slept after TDD as i have to go office by morning).
6. CBC Jerks there but due to low speed not suffered much.
7.Food is available from VSKP. Contractor is Mr.P.Sivaprasad of VSKP . Veg Biryani 60, EGG 70, Chicken 80,4 Chapatis with Aloo&Tamoto Mix curry 40 Rs. (Chapatis are good in size and suitable for 1 Person easily)
I took EGG biryani with curry which is Very good and properly cooked and HOT.
8.Reached MLY at 6.40 AM Near. I luckily found & catched Visakha Express which is in adjacent Track (Arrived after my train) and reached SC by 7.25. at that time announcement was coming from station that 12783 will arrive on PF-3 shortly.
9. Dont worry on Bedding as it has SCR Sealed paper with 2 Milky white blankets,1 White and sented Face towel and a white pillow. All are ultra clean. i checked entire coach blankets by walking. No complaints from any one regarding bedding.
10. No Charging sockets for SLB/SUB in all berths of my coach.
Thinking post Travelogue also.

    @all: At this time, the PNR Forum is functioning again, albeit at a greatly reduced volume and efficiency. Refreshing PNRs is a very cumbersome affair. We may expect this to end as well, eventually, as the Govt. tightens these controls further. At IRI, we CANNOT waste any more time on this fruitless...

    @all: The PNR Forum as we know it is OVER. The official website has unilaterally decided to thoroughly block and shut down all access to PNR info. We had put in MANY, many years of PAINSTAKING effort to develop the PNR Prediction infrastructure, and our Sr. Legendary Members have helped countless people...
