Traveled in 3AC to KTW. Here are some points.
1. Starts from DLI now and not DEE, just in case anyone noticed the old pic. I have uploaded the new nameplate- but yet to appear on site.
2. The boarding PF is 16. This is a long walk if coming from metro. However if coming via cab, make sure to alight on the hamilton road entry , towards Mori gate. You can walk straight towards the PF after security check.
This is a long train- with 3 sections , going to HW, DDN and KTW respectively. There is no interconnection between these sections. Come early and board carefully. Specifically B3 goes to KTW and other AC coaches go to DDN.
4. Very old ICF coaches- some dating back 14 years. They are cleaned before the start of journey- but the age shows.
5. Smelly,stinky Bio-toilets- and the fan doesn't work in some. There was no one to clean them during journey. There are no hand sprays and no hand wash. The mirror is stained. Just plain bad.
6. On a positive note, the bed-rolls were clean and white. The cooling was not very good, so you don't need the heavy blankets. Complained to the attendant about the cooling, but nothing was done.
7. The train is slow, but punctual- mostly because of the slack. You will get jerks- not only because of the age of the rakes, but also because of the reversal at gajraula and detachment of DDN coaches.
8. There is almost no traffic after najibabad. The train will make up time, even if late.
9. This is a night train with absolutely no catering- if you are lucky you may get something in GJL.
10. I spotted a few RPF personnel. So security should not be a issue.


ONLY COVID-19 Specials are running.
As Corona cases are increasing rapidly, Members are advised to TAKE extra CARE these days.
1. AVOID going outdoors even if lockdown is easing.
2. ALWAYS wear a MASK when OUTDOORS.
3. Wash hands frequently. Do NOT touch your face.
