Journey Review:
I was very excited ever since I bought the tickets of Maitree Express, since it was supposed to be my first ever International Train Travel as all my international travels till date were Air Travel. But To Be Honest This Train Disappointed Me A Big Deal
1. The Toilets Were Leaking & Stinking. Also There Was No OBHS Through Out The Journey
It Was Not Told That Even In 1A BR Is Allocating 3 Pax ( Their Logic Is It's A Day Train) In A Coupe Of 2
3. Cooling Was Pathetic. No Changes Had Been Made Even After Multiple Complains.
4. The Train Ran Like A Passenger Train After Iswardi Jn. Was Put In A Loup Just Before Bangabandhu Bridge For An Hour. It Shows How BR Prioritize An International Train
Food Availability Is Very Limited
Few Pics Attached From Our Journey

In the old days, when First Class Non-AC used to exist, the same system was there. During day journeys an extra passenger was accommodated in a coupe and two extra passengers in a 4 berther. But in AC First, this has never been so to the best of my knowledge

Your Knowledge Is Right. I Have Traveled In 1A On Many Occasions In IR. Never Saw 3 Pax Allotment In A Cabin For 2....On The Contrary, I Have Traveled By Sunderban Express ( Dhaka - Khulna) in 1A...There As Well 6 Pax Allotment Was There In A Cabin Of 4

Travel SAFE

1. RailFanning does NOT MEAN dangerous pics/videos.
2. Doorplating pics/youtube videos are strictly FORBIDDEN in IRI.
3. Take plenty of food pics and other safe pics.
4. Write human interest narratives to make the pics interesting.
5. Enjoy blogging and travelling SAFELY.

REMEMBER: YOUR LIFE is the most precious thing, NOT RailFanning.

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
