After nearly 2.5 yrs I had an opportunity to travel to Patna and nearly 2 months back I booked my ticket (including return) in Patna Rajdhani. My coach was assigned B2, side lower birth near the door. I post my train journey here:
I arrived NDLS around 4:50 PM to see a long queue to scan bags and enter the station. I chose the end of Ajmeri Gate entry knowing that B2 coach is at the behind of rake. PNBE Rajdhani was already placed at PF 13 and I entered my coach B2. The train was full with passengers. I was shocked to see Sampoorna Kranti placed at PF 12. I knew that it is placed on PF 16.
at 5:20 PM PNBE Rajdhani started its journey. Mineral water was served along with snacks having Kachouri, Sandwich, Lemon juice, Son Papdi and a mixture packet. Dinner was very bad with almost no taste, at 8 PM. We arrived Kanpur at 10 Pm sharp with Pushpak Express leaving PF 1 with WAP 7. Sharp at 12 AM it arrived Allahabad. We met Duronto entering Allahabad and 12309 Patna-NDLS Rajdhani met near Yamuna bridge. We crossed Mirzapur sharp at 1 AM arriving MGS at 2 PM. Bhagalpur NDLS SuperFast enetred with WAP 4 and immediately Dehradun-HWH Doon Express arrived with WDP 4 on adjoining platform.
At 4 AM I woke up to see as where we have arrived and we crossed danapur at full speed, within 10 mins crossed Phulwari Sharif and within 10 mins, sharp 4:20 AM arrived Patna junction. It broke previous record when I arrived Patna at 4:45 AM.
1. Temperature control of 23-24 degree is maintained in all coaches which makes it lot warm and unbearable. You don't get blanket anymore.
2. food served in 3 AC coach has really degraded in terms of quality.
3. It is now mixture of Swarna coaches and non Swarna coaches. My coach was a Swarna coach with Vinyl interiors
1. PNBE Rajdhani ready to start from PF 13
2. SK at PF 12 with CNB WAP 4
3. Top speed maintained throughout
4. Changed interiors of Swarna coach
and yes get ready for return journey with 3 videos of PNBE Rajdhani (entering Patna and one slow speed and one high speed crossing at Phulwari Sharif)
