Great Useful _/\_
Good evening everyone, its my review of 17479/80 in which i travelled round trip,from puri to bvrt on 24th December 2023 and from bvrt to puri on 2nd January 2024, booked the first ticket in tq as wl was high and booked from tenali to puri in return as i got rac from there while from bvrt ther was rlwl 6, coming to my journey experience i boarded the train from puri just entered my coach a1 and it was really dirty not maintained at all,but bedding was clean ,no towel was given in bedroll packet so i asked the coach attendant two three times and finally done a complaint on railmadad don't know why these people think that they can do whatever they wanna do, reached bvrt around 1 and hour late and lt was like ki may,june chal raha ho,puri me bhi jayada warm temperature hota hai but yaha...
toh hadd se jayda tha, you will not get any kind of catering services on board on first night however you can have breakfast at rjy it was really nice,then in return journey same kind of coach was there no maintenance at all but yea this time the coach was of 46 seats it was the first time i travelled in 46 seats 2ac icf coach and probably will be my last as well as icf coaches are slowing going out of service even my coach was 2002 made, reached palasa railway station around 10 minutes late but then had a halt of long 2 hours as the ac vent cover of b4 coach was damaged and it was touching ohe if it had gone unnoticed it could have ignited fire in the coach, then after repair work was done train halted at mandasa road for an unexpected overtake by sbc bbs visakha express my coach became very empty after vskp ,and then i knew ki aaj sham toh ho hi jayegi puri pauchte pauchte even if it go via haripurgram junction but to my surprise it instead went to khurda road junction for a reversal it was surprising because bookings are done from haripurgram junction not kur and again halted there for more than an hour and then had a good non stop run till puri reached puri at 17:35 pm around 3 hours late,at kur, kur kgp express was standing, at puri ,puri shm garib rath was standing (imho icf 2ac interiors are much better than lhb ) thanks a lot

1. Spelling in Hindi of Puri on large train board is wrong.
2. Yes this is even observed in Ahmedabad that few trains halting at Chandlodiya B have the bookings to be done from Chandlodiya station

1Yes bhai even the announcement done at various Station for this and many Puri bound trains sounds like purri,pori not puri
2 same thing happens with many trains at merta road where trains go to merta bypass but bookings are done from merta road junction (imho ir should not do things like this as this creates confusion among passengers)

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
