This Train Is Nightmare. But Had To Travel In It Since This Is The Only Direct Train To AGTL Where You Can Explore Barak Valley. Honestly Speaking There Is No PRO In This Train, But It Is Full Of Cons... The Cons Are
1. There Is No PC In Such A Long Distance Train. After NJP You Will Hardly Find A Vendor Even For Tea/Coffee/ Water. Although People Do Take Orders For Your Meal. I Booked Lunch & Dinner For Yesterday Through E-Catering . Hence, Had No Real Issues In Terms Of Food. This Morning Had Good Breakfast Option At LMG. Had To Order Lunch From Railway Staffs Which Was Disaster. But At Haflong, You Get Good Food & Fruits To Purchase.

2. Cleanliness Is A Big Let Down. First Thing We Got To Know After Boarding The Train Is OBHK Is On Strike, So No Staffs Will Be Available For Cleaning. Nothing Happened Even After Tweeting To Railway Ministry. Even The AC Door Was Making Noise Like Anything. Bedroll Was There, But Without Hand Towels. We Eventually Had To Ask For It
3. The Train Is A Supercrawler. Through Out Its Run It Maintained A Delay Around 1 Hour But Reached DMR Just 15 Mins Late....This Train Can Easily Depart At 8:35 Hrs From SDAH And Still Maintain Its Schedule
4. All Coaches ( AC & Sleeper) Needs Replacement Since They Are Horribly Old And Zero Maintenance . Orelse A Serious Accident Is Just Round The Corner
