So right from bangalore it was filthy is it? and dint you even lodge a complaint with the TTE. Btw.. SWR has one of the best maintained coaches and when the train begins its journey 99% of the trains are cleaned and toilets are are sanitised. However,its the pax who further make it more and more filthy. so why not we blame us also along with blaming IR...

the TTE was pretty rude including the attendants- there were no napkins as usual- my simple question is why we have to always fight for such basic amenities?

Well, by the time one reaches Ahemdabad, your journey is nearly 2/3 over so it would be meaningful for to clean the bogies, toilets once every 12 hours instead of once every 36 hours

What i have noted is that where there are no OBHK facility trains are cleaned at certain stations. until OBHK was there in RaptiSagar express the train was cleaned at ED when i used to travel from MAS to PGT. Well in your case it might be negligence from staff and a complaint should have been lodged and i am sure the cleaning staff at the next station would have done the job. You are also right as to why we should fight for basic amenities but on the other side i also feel that as a responsible citizen if we had complained the other pax would also have been benefited.

Finally the IR has acted sensibly by reducing the Advance Reservation Period (ARP) from 120 to 60 days. No one can predict their travel plans so much in advance-hopefully getting the confirmed tickets will be lot easy.

Though internet reservation facility is there, but, due to reducing the ARP to 60days, now we can see a more long line of passengers in the reservation counter. And, also, now, the passengers will think whether, they shall buy a WL ticket or not.

    -@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,...
