Is this the menu for 3A and 2A ? ...1A meals are freshly prepared on board the train and usually have different items on order.
Then you may mention the same in blog # 1.
Best Rajdhani train to travel on, First Class food and service on first ac coach. Very neat and clean, spick and span All thanks to Suresh Prabhu's surge pricing and high flight fares which compelled me to travel in first ac at an already high fare. It felt like a moving hotel. Amazing interiors. Train reached half an hour late, fare is quite expensive for a 15 hr journey, but worth every penny and time spent on it. I am glad I travelled in first ac this time. I got 2 servings of tomato soup and sufficient food quantity and quality was as good as home made food, especially Rohu fried fish. 12951-12951 train is much better than 12953-12954, that is why it has less availability, I was shocked to see so many seats available in august kranti Rajdhani at last minute, now I know why. Also 12951 has lesser halts
does that mean we will get same quality and type of food on 12952 /ndls-bct raj ?
is breakfast served on 12952 mumbai rajdhani?
In terms of food and cleanliness, yes definitely. This was first AC. Even second ac itself is clean nowadays and railway staff are very friendly and helpful nowadays. I don't hesitate to give any tips as they deserve it for their hardwork. I only wish Suresh Prabhu did not apply the flexi system of pricing like in flights but still worth every penny.
Yes it is. In first ac you can opt for whatever you want from omlette, veg cutlet to poha along with fruits and cornflakes, you can opt for more than 1 item. Quality of food in first ac is very tasty. Second ac, you have a choice between omlette, poha, cutlet and Rava upma, quality is satisfactory.
I am planning to travel in 1A on a Rajdhani from Mumbai to Delhi, just to experience Rajdhani's 1A. But since AK Raj. can be boarded from Andheri and it is 1 hour later than 12951, it suits us more. Also reaching NZM is not an issue, thanks to Ola/Uber. Further you get lot of time to enjoy (?) the breakfast as arrival is at 11 AM.
Will I not get same level of food / service quality in AK?
Ya ya, I have travelled in 1A August kranti also, it is fine, you will get similar quality and service, though not sure whether you will get the blue birth ones or red berth ones. Only problem will be too may stops, and Nizamuddin station is a small station with only 7 platforms, it gets too congested with lot of local passengers sitting and crowding on platforms as well. New delhi station is one of the major and busiest stations in delhi with about 20 platforms. The 12951/12952 train takes lesser time and few halts. Almost same quality as both are rake sharing and similar onboard staff too.
Too many stops - No problem, we are travelling for leisure.
NZM crowding - I use Dadar Mumbai station daily, no other station can be as crowded.
AK Raj can be boarded at Andheri so one can leave office late like around 5.30.. For reaching BCT at 5 PM, we have to leave office at 3.30. almost a half day leave and aur bosses are pain in a**
easily, as wl1 is still low as 6.seets are reserved for ho/vip quota. atcharting, when thse seats are vacant, they are released to wl passengers, i guess it will confirm much before that.
Same i want to see in 12301 Howrah Rajdhani.
How much tip you had to pay?
Paying 50 or 100 is enough. It was nothing compared to the price you pay for the ticket.
I recently traveled in 12951 Mumbai Rajdhani,and liked it very much.The food was good,and the pantry stafs are not like before, they r really friendly 2 us nowadays.The only thing is that u wont be able 2 enjoy standing near the door as the AC attendant will warn u,but luckily the AC attendant was a malayale and we somehow became good friends and he allowed me 2 stand near the door.Only thing i hated was the Loco of Mumbai rajdhani(WAP 7),whereas i expected it 2 be WAP 5😢.Overall safety i can give it a 10 on 10,food was 9/10,puntuality was 8/10,cleanliness was 9 on 10.Please dont travel in S kranti rajdhani express as it takes longer time 2 travel.Thank You and enjoy ur journey In MUMBAI RAJDHANI OR THE KING OF RAJDHANI.
Is BCT Rajdhani getting HOG enabled WAP7
That's Why The Rajdhani is not getting P5
Hope WR (BRC) to get some HOG Enabled P7 to haul this WR Rajdhani
Recently BRC WAP5s were also spotted with 12951/3.
I'm saying about HOG Enabled P7
That is Now only at GZB & HWH ELS
I know. But not always it gets P7. It got BRC WAP4E too for few runs.
That's bcoz 30445 failed at Bct it self so
Link has been changed to GZB WAP7 way back in March 2013.
And now HOG WAP7 Gets 2 new sheds. RPM and BRC.
Try to travel in August Kranti Rather than 12952 Mum Raj. In terms of comfort and food and staff. Very bad in 12952 Mum Raj
plz elaborate how come its possible that comfort is not good in Mumbai Rajdhani.. both AK n Mumbai Rajdhani has RSA so agar AK me comfort feel hota hai to same rack kisi na kisi din Mumbai Rajdhani me bhi aayega..
2nd thing-- BCT Rajdhani has lesser stops thn AK Rajdhani so i guess end to end pax ke liye BCT Rajdhani better hogi..
catering's story is almost same in every rajdhani now a days.. be it Mumbai Rajdhani or HWH Rajdhani or SDAH Rajdhani or DBRT Rajhani
Yes you are correct. I meant in terms of food and catering only :)
My friend travelled in 12951 bct-ndls. He was travelling in 2AC. He felt the food was not fresh as per taste in a veg meal and he also felt inappropriate about the tipping rule demanding by the coach attendant. He tweeted to the Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu about the entire incident. Within 4days there was a railway official frm bct division at his residence returning him his entire money by cheque and also getting an apology letter from the minister and a H1 travel ticket in the same train as a upgrade since the entire service was not worth the money. So people please there is a way to reach out to the correct person. Its no point chatting sch lame conversation's here by saying the Paneer was not cooked well, the dal was too watery, wch rajdhani serves better food etc etc... Nothing personal folks.... tc
