Hi to all. I had a few questions about this train. Firstly, I would like to mention that we would be about 40 people travelling from Mumbai to Secunderabad. Now 70 percent of the members in my group are 50 years and above. We will be travelling by about 3AC. Hence, my first question - Is it a good train, comfortable births? The next thing to know is - Are pillows/blankets provided in the train in 3AC? And my last question - Is any meal of the day provided? I specifically want to know if Dinner is provided in 3AC? If not, can we order food for 40 people in the train itself?
I have never travelled by this train before
and I have a responsibility of 40 people with me. Hence the questions. Kindly help.

Well ma'am Konark is a high demand train, if you'd want to book 40 pax you better hurry. As well food is good on this train. You can go to the pantry and place an order before hand. BF is served as well but since the train reaches SC by 8 it is better to get down there and have fresh BF in the restraunt at PF 1.

DesertFOX - thanks once again. I am booking this train exactly 90 days prior to my departure. I have to go in the month of June. Hence, I wanted to clear my doubts. So from what you have said, i infer, that the train is a good one, bedding is provided in 3AC and the pantry service is good as well. So when i travel by KONARK EXP. all i have to do is order for my meals within the train itself.
This all has been very helpful. I hope I inferred correctly.

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

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
