Recently I travelled by 22631 Chennai Bikaner Anuvrat Express from Bhopal to Jaipur.
My observations as experienced:
1. Cleanliness in the train is a MAJOR issue. There is no On Board Cleaning Staff. Toilets had choked or leaking with no water in taps;
2. Attendant not traceable;
Passengers already sleeping in our berths. Had to wake them up at 12:00 midnight. This should have been the responsibility of the Attendant / TTE to see that neither the sleeping passengers nor we were inconvenienced at midnight;
4. As morning broke, the Wash-Basins were overflowing and choked;
5. Urine and shit in the toilets. Had to travel from AE-1 to A1 for the loo, as this toilet was slightly better;
6. Quality of breakfast was POOR. The pantry contractor to save money mixes water type Sambhar with Chatni in a low grade plastic pouch. This gets strewn all over when the passengers try to open it thereby further dirtying the coach and inconveniencing other co-passengers;
7. Quality of bedding provided was good even though the train starts from Chennai and we boarded from Bhopal; Bedsheets were unused and clean;
8. AC was comfortable;
9. Since the coaches are of LHB make and comparatively newer, designing is passenger friendly. Ample charging points. Curtains clean and welcrow in place. Had a good sleep.
1. Since this is supposed to be a premium train, running time between Chennai and Bikaner can be cut down atleast by 5 - 6 hours and this is possible;
2. On Board Cleaning staff should be IMMEDIATELY provided;
3. Food quality should be looked into and improved urgently;
4. ATTENDANT should be in the Coach and made accountable.

    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...

    A minor update, but may impact many members: Hereafter, FMs will be able to delete invalid Red Flags on Imaginary trains. Red Flags can be removed by FMs, only against specific complaints filed against the blog. This does not give all members the right to complain against EVERY single red flag they...

    -@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. It gives me immense pleasure in congratulating them for running the team diligently, professionally, competently and above all, without a shred of controversy or bias. The FM position...
