Travelled on 29-06-2019 from MS to MDU in C7 (3-seater on track side)
Short Review: Amazing train. Average food. Speedy run feast by RPM WAP-7. On-time performance.
Deep Review:
1. Cleanliness: Super clean train. Coaches are cleaned after passengers have breakfast. Fresheners are sprinkled. Toilets are shiny and not stinky
Punctuality: This train enjoys top priority in this route. Mostly before time at TPJ, Slightly late at KQN. Again on-time at MDU.
3. Food: Food is optional in this train. You can opt-out while booking your ticket. Food is very much average according to IR standards.
Around 6:30 AM, Biscuit and Tea/Coffee is served. Coffee is readymix.
Around 7:40 AM, Breakfast is served. 2 slices of bread and butter, 2 Idli and 2 Vada, Sambar and chutney, Muffin, Juice and Coffee/Tea.
No Lunch. Food is optional in this train. You can opt out while booking ticket.
4. Ticket Availability: Large number of seats available. No dynamic pricing.
5. Railfanning: Automatic doors, so no doorplating. Clear windows. Some toilets might have open windows.
6. Safety: Top class LHB coaches. Just 2 stops, so no intruders.
7. Comfort: Very comfortable seats. Reclining seats.
8. In-seat entertainment system took around a minute or two to start. GPS did not work. You will need to carry earphones/headphones. Hardly anyone uses them.
9. Toilets have plane-like vacuum flush system. DO NOT SIT and FLUSH. The suction is very powerful.
10. Coaches and cabins have automatic doors. While the cabin doors are sensor based, but coach door is not. Be sure to arrive/ board the train at least 5 minutes before departure.
11. Each bay of seats has 2 charging points. (For OnePlus users some points may not fit)
