Few Pics of 12840 MAS HWH mail departed from Chennai on 8th Nov 2019 .
The meter box under Coach A1 of AC 2 Tier caught Fire and Emergency Team was summoned upon at Vishakhapatanam (VSKP) station . Fire Extingushers had to be used in full force due to which the Train got delayed by 1 Hour at VSKP and ultimately reached HWH on 10- Nov - 2019 at 4:50 which is 50 mins behind Schedule .
This train really needs proper maintenance and the coaches needs to be replaced .
I was travelling in Coach A2 and it was literally shaking like anything during the train MPS Run . Also the Jerk is too much every time the train starts or Stops . In case if you are having food and the train stops or starts the Jerk is so much that your food is sure to be spilled over . The doors of the coaches are full of rust , the bathroom locks does not get locked easily unless proper force is applied and the sinks in couple of bathroom had leakage .
The Attendants on AC Coaches will not give towel unless you ask for . Also they will come and ask for Tip after BBS . Not sure why we need to tip them Since there was no extra service that they provided to us . When confronted they told that they gave the towel when asked for and secondly they are not railways staff and since they are from 3rd party vendor hence they ask for tip .


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.
