Went to pick up my relative today, 5th June from NDLS. Few observations:
1. SK was scheduled to arrive by 9:40 AM and I reached station PF 12 to pick up my relative. As I entered station, announcement was made for coming of Vaishali Express on PF 6. At 10:15 announcement was made for Shramjeevi to arrive on PF 5. Soon Lucknow-Delhi-Agra Intercity Express arrived on PF 12. At 10:30 ShivGanga was placed on PF10, Howrah Rajdhani arrived on PF16 at 10:40, Sealdah Rajdhani on PF-13 at 11 AM, Guwhati Rajdhani at 11:15 AM and Bhubneshwar Rajdhani at 11:30 AM. SK was immediately announced and arrived on PF:14 at 11:35 AM, a near delay of 3.5 hrs
I saw that most trans arrived with a delay of 4-5 hrs. All the trains arriving with 5-10 mins created a havoc at NDLS and Ola/Uber server went down.
3. With peak temperature of 45 degree it was very difficult to get a cab as SK arrived.
4. I think SK was overtaken by all Rajdhani gang and also was not able to OT Vaishali, Shivganga and Lucknow-Agra Intercity. Later it must have been overtaken by all the Rajdhanis.
5. Only train to arrive after SK was legendary Poorva which arrived at near 11:45 AM on PF 16.

Need Help- what is the option of travelling within 24 hrs from New Delhi to Patna? Please dont suggest Tatkal. Most tickets are showing WL 20 or WL30. Please advise.

There are more chances of confirmation in 12394 than in 12304. If u don't believe me, u may book in both analyse. I m not saying dat wl 27 will confirm in 12394 bt it wud surely be an easier bet than 12304.

Just for all- the ticket did not get confirm in SK 12394. WL moved from 45 to WL 15 till 31st May (today), which was very surprising. Given that their is only one 2nd AC coach, this was amazing that even Wait list ticket will break from WL/45 to WL/15 in 15 days.

I went to drop my relatives to New Delhi, who were travelling in SK. Here are few observations:
1. Their was an utter chaos as coach alignment has changed and now AC coach is at the back and General coaches are in the front. Many SK travellers who did not know this and in particular who were travelling in General were running from back of the train to the front. I would like to thank Indiarailinfo as before travelling I checked the coach structure and was well aware of the coach composition.
This train definitely need additional 2AC and 1 more 3AC coach.
3. Please keep a buffer of 20-30 mins as huge rush for SK due to Summer vacations and long waiting time due to baggage checking.

No, I did not. All thanks to Indiarail info. Otherwise I would have moved straight towards Loco and then would have moved backwards. and Yes it was mad rush for SK. Took almost 20 minutes to enter NDLS due to baggage checking.

If u r from Bihar ..then u know what's the rush during peak time in Bihar bound trains...
If 2 trains were introduced for pnbe from ndls ..still we will get same rush...Don't know when ppl of Bihar will travel comfortably in trains ..
Same applies for other areas too..
