Reserved ticket holders find it difficult in reaching their berth in coach
“I travelled by 12728 from Secunderabad to Visakhapatnam on Saturday by booking a premium Tatkal ticket and was allotted a berth in S1 coach. I was surprised to see many MST (Monthly Season Ticket) passengers from Secunderabad to Warangal occupied berths in S1 and S 2 coaches,” according to Gawri Reddy K.
“I had a tough time in going to my seat. The RPF security allotted to S1 coach was chit chatting with MST passengers, unmindful of the agony of reserved

passengers. He failed to control the crowd coming from adjoining general coaches into S1.
The Railways should think seriously while allotting berths to premium tatkal passengers. I regretted travelling in Godavari Express by paying a huge amount but having to put up with a lot of disturbance and inconvenience. The train reached Bezawada and Rajahmundry on time. Around 6.30 a.m. I woke up and was surprised to see the train stopped at Yelamanchili while trains like Visakha, Garib Rath and Vivek Express crossed our train. On enquiry, the GRP personnel informed that the engine hauling Godavari failed between Regupalem and Yelamanchili. The train was pushed from behind by another engine to platform No.2 of Yelamanchili at 5.30 a.m. The GRP constable didn't divulge other details but said the Guard will lodge an FIR at Vizag for the undue delay and reasons for failure of the engine.
The train left Yelamanchili at 7.30 a.m., hauled by a blue-coloured engine, next to a white one.
The train reached Duvvada at 8.10 a.m. where it was detained till 8.50 a.m. Finally, it reached Visakhapatnam at 9.40 a.m. on PF no. 1. Though engine failure is rare, many passengers opined that the time taken to reach Visakhapatnam from Duvvada was ‘unjustifiable’.
The maintenance of AC coaches, originating and terminating in Visakhapatnam, ‘is awful’, to say the least, says a frequent traveller.
A couple of weeks ago, there was malfunctioning of the AC in the II AC coach of the Visakhapatnam – LTT Express, in which Visakhapatnam East MLA Velagapudi Ramakrishna Babu was travelling. Irate passengers pulled the chain and stopped the train to protest against the callousness of the authorities concerned.
The glass windows of the Amritsar-Visakhapatnam Hirakud Express were broken by passengers at Jhansi last week in protest against the malfunctioning of the AC. “The AC coaches are failing frequently as the maintenance of the batteries is being neglected. Apart from being very old, they are not being serviced regularly resulting in their producing very low voltage,” according to railway sources. Moreover, khalasis are being sent on duty in place of AC mechanics and their lack of knowledge and inept handling are also resulting in frequent complaints from passengers, especially those relating to excessive cooling or no cooling at all.
There are also frequent complaints of lack of cleaning of bedrolls and irregularity of the ‘On Board Cleaning’ staff.
Nearly a month after the successful completion of the trial run of the Double Decker, no decision seems to have been taken on its launch as the East Coast Railway (ECoR) is reportedly against maintaining the rake in Visakhapatnam.
The Railways had announced that the DD train would be run from Visakhapatnam to Vijayawada or Visakhapatnam to Tirupathi via Vijayawada in view of the high demand on this route. ECoR reportedly wanted South Central Railway to maintain the DD rake but the latter wanted ECoR to maintain it as the rake would be under their control. The Coaching Complex in Visakhapatnam has all the facilities to maintain the DD rake, according to railway sources.
