This train worse than a Passenger train.
Biggest joke: 14308 BE PRG exp (literally Passenger) departs from BE 1.30hrs after this 14236 BSB exp , but still always overtakes this train before arriving LKO.
Kindly ignore this train if you have to Travel between Bareilly to Varanasi. Even the DDN BSB Janta is far more better than this train.
It is Worst in terms
of punctuality and never runs on time irrespective of the Huge Slack povided.
NR is just looting people by running a Poor Passenger category with Express fare.
But yes, if you have to travel from Lucknow to Varanasi , Then this train can be very well preferred due to its Full overnight journey and good seat availability.
But don't ever waste money on this train for travelling between Bareilly to Lucknow. Even the UPSRTC buses takes far lesser time for Bareilly to Lucknow journey compared to this train.
PS: Lucknow is in RLWL with lesser seats. If you want to enjoy GNWL of this train (majority of times LKO-BSB RLWL is full up whereas BE-BSB GNWL is empty) , then kindly book from Kakori to Varanasi with Boarding from Lucknow.

For those who want to travel from Surat to Ahmedabad, most of the times it will show high waitlist or regret but seats will be available in current booking. Current booking opens on the previous day afternoon at about 1 pm. Keep checking current booking availability.

CC of this train is just exactly opposite what's given on IRI.
2S coaches are not at all comfortable. Very cramped seats and windows.
ICF 2S coaches are much more comfortable
than this.
Very poor Cleanliness. Garbage brought from Amritsar does not get cleaned at NDLS.

    @all: While we do nominally allow multiple IDs, these multiple IDs are NOT allowed to engage in misuse and "mischief". Voting multiple times in the same poll using multiple IDs, rating each other IDs' blogs using multiple IDs, etc. are classified as "gross misuse". . This is an advance notice that some of the...
