Looks like Sleeper is the new Unreserved. After Gaya there were unreserved travellers trying to occupy any little space that was available. After Allahabad people were sleeping on the floor, aisles and common areas near the toilets. TTEs were only checking to see if they had [unreserved] tickets. Charging point did not work and the berths were dusty. I was practically forced to spend all my time in my upper bunk. And, of course, the usual Delhi-Allahabad sector delay which meant arrival at 0930 instead of 0600. Deeply disappointing - I did not expect a mainstream train like Poorva to be so shabby.

Actual reason of such convenience is high rush.

Bad food quality. Detoriated over the years.

Agree - Food in Sleeper class was terrible. Rice + Dal + Chicken or Mixed veg + Curd. Exact same meal both for lunch and dinner. The evening snack was a joke - no frooti, no bhujia and no sandwich -- just a very hard khasta kachauri (inedible) and tea kit. It's better to ignore this and get your own food.

Massive delays on the Kanpur-Mughalsarai section as usual. At Kanpur the train was an hour late but it lost another three hours in the stretch till Mughalsarai with two hours spent waiting at Mirzapur while four Rajdhani trains were allowed to pass by. Overall six hour delay in reaching HWH (arrival at 1150).

With the new non-discharge toilets installed the toilets are a major hazard. On my journey (Sleeper class - June 2017) one toilet was completely full and waste had come up to the metal brim. The smell of ammonia was overpowering. All this happened by the night of the first day before Mughalsarai (2200 hrs). By 0600 the next morning the train was 3 hours late and another toilet was overflowing. This is atrocious and a big problem when planning a journey with families or old people.

Sleeper Class experience today was horrendous. S2 was packed with unskilled workmen travelling to Kerala and by noon they had all spread plastic sheets on the floors and were sleeping everywhere. It was impossible to get up for lack of space, fear of theft and fear of seat being taken. The Ticket Checkers were accepting bribes to let these people remain and the upper berths had 2, sometimes 3 people. There was no power in my coach so after sundown it was pitch black with no fans and people lying all over the place.

    -@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.
