I recently travelled by this train last week on 2nd Sept 2011. I was very disappointed not to see the LHB rakes. Instead, the rakes used were degraded quality, dirty, filthy some 90s era ICF rakes. There were cockroaches roaming around with no hygiene, stinking toilets and water leakage underneath wash basins. Later on there was water shortage due to these leakage and train was running without water from Secunderabad to Nagpur. Food was really really bad. I had stomach problem after having dinner. Instead of improving it, this train is becoming pathetic day by day. The latest update I got from Station Master at Bangalore City was LHB rakes are there, but they are only 2 in numbers which will be utilized for 12493/4 and not 12429/30. Hence, 12429/30 will keep on running with ICF rakes till next 1-2 yrs. Please avoid travelling by this train. Take Sampark Kranti...

in your case the problem is not whether the train is running with lhb or icf rakes? the main problem is types of service been provided to you like
poor quality food
untidy coaches
water leakage at toilets
what is the guarantee that you will be not facing the above problems in LHB rakes?. maintenance of coach, food quality , clealiness in toilet is depends on mindset of railway staff not on rakes my dear . please dear stop blaming the coaches .i would like to recmmend you to try a complaint letter to the railway authority instead of showing frustration on icf rakes.

very bad condition of the AC2 too , I travelled in Aug this year. Pathetic condition. My only question is railway should first give priority to rajdhani for LHB rakes, not Durrontos.
Atleast if LHB rakes are not available they could have decent ICF rake for it. Secondly the catering is such pathetic really i donot know why arenot they given any training to mantain hygine . I asked for water near bhopal in 12430 to delhi from bangalore and the person looked at with big eyes like I have asked cold drinks from him for free. He gave me second bottle after he came to know that I would not leave him.

and these shameless contractors still want TIP money. If you give them 10 Rs. they will return you back as they need 20Rs per person. I don't know who started this culture of giving tips to crew

To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...
