In my travel in 2AC, I took non-veg food, and my friends took veg food.. Many of us just returned the plate because of the worst quality of food. We're happy with our own snacks that we had from my friends home. I do not know when the railways will wake-up from this complete mess... In premium trains, catering should not be compulsory and make it is an optional, then only, food quality will improve.
That is why "Delux or Paschim Express' are popular among those who love to travel in 2A 3A but get chance to buy food from vendors ...
Just let me know I would travel in this train to enjoy its speed, can I get good food packets at Surat station, I would prefer Veg. food..
I request you to travel sometime after snow period, so that, you may experience its full speed. Because, unfortunately, my travel on 25th ended with [3 hrs delay...|/diary/trip/42243]
