Travelled recently from BDTS to NZM on 22nd may 2012,my coach was J4(garib rath Chair car) and seat was 63...thankfully it was an AISLE one.
Well to be starting,i thot the seats are comfortable and relaxing unlike described in this forum that the seats are tough and it would be a hell journey.i am 6.2fts and i found much leg space for me between the two seats.
The main problem arises in Night time when u just hav to stay awake for most of the time or put head down on the tray
behind the seats.
Now about the food.....A STRICTLY NO-NO....It was jus YUCKS!
you are provided with sheets and a pillow by paying rs20.
The cooling of this train is just superb,u hav to take a sheet compulsorily for dt mch cooling,never experienced such cooling even in rjdhani and shatabdi trains.
Speed of the train was excellent....But after entering NCR....Dis train jus crawls trgh every station it passes by..Anyhw i rchd NZM by 9.55...10 MINS LATE.
Explaining the cooling...heres a fact for u...I live in noida...from NZM it takes arnd 1hr to reach ma u wnt believe the clothes were so cool inside till den,even thgh the temp outside must hav been arnd 42-44c
