I am surprised that there is no waiting room for AC first passengers in Secundrabad (SC). They have two prepaid AC waiting halls that are dirty, stinky due to poor ventilation hence a health risk, and crowded. Unsuitable for high fare paying passengers. In contrast, Rajahmundry has a separate waiting hall for all AC ticket holders that is well maintained and clean. Had disappointing experience in SC.

I traveled from VSKP to ARK on 58501/VSKP KRDL PASS by Ist Class compartment. The train passes through some the most scenic landscapes while cross the Eastern Ghats. But the compartment was horrible. I suppose IR should replace the compartment to attract tourists.

Shalimar AC express from SC to HWH is good except for toilets. But the train was not even half full on the day I traveled from SC to RJY.

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . 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,...

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far.
