I had worst experience about the train and the boarding station. No pantry car anything on the train. Nothing VEG to eat on safdarjung station. No Local train / metro to safdarjung. took me Rs. 200 to reach the Delhi Safdarjung station. Its better to take tatkal for any regular train and try to avoid special trains as they are accustomed to get late and purposely put on siding to allow regular trains to run. Bad maintenance of the train as the berths were v dirty.My train was 4 hours LATE on Delhi Safdarjung Station. I reached Borivili at around 10.00 pm
The tickets of these trains should be 50% lower if they are so neglected. Its complete cheating by
charging the same fare and giving so bad service

its unfortunate you had to face problems.
It is for your info tht Local Parikrama trains are available at specific timings. you can see in this website - choose All trains tab, - Delhi Parikrama - you can go to the nearest station and travel comfortably in local train bcause it is not crowded. No metro at present.
About Rs.200/- from where did u take an auto? From out of delhi? even for approx 30km distance, it works out to Rs.120= 150 (150 with extra person or luggage or covering with extra

Special trains are ususally known to have its own special arrival timing at its Destination station.
@ The special trains are announced to clear the extra rush of passengers during seasons by deploying idle /spare coaches into the fleet. So it's common to find bad conditions of the coaches of spl trains. Note that Regular trains do and must get priority in clearance on the route over Spl trains.
@ Plz note that spl trains never have pantry car attached to it.
Even many regular mail/express trains do not have pantry car facility and many have only pantry facility (i.e. food items / beverages uploaded from intermediate stops and stored in hot/cold cases to be later served to passengers as per order and menu card rates.

you are changing the topic now. i also live in delhi and know about roads. now metro has dug in so many places as work is going on. its all part of our life. i have seen worst roads in mumbai recently. i did not complain, because there also some work is going on. moreover we would be using the stretch once or twice in a year. may be after the work is over, there may be clean roads.
you have not answered the questions and skirted the answers.
