Was onboard 22504 Vivek Express ex. VSKP till ERN. JCO 29-04-2024


The ride quality was worse and the coach condition cannot be described as pathetic. It's worse than that😕.

The
...

walls of my coupe (2AC) was coloured with crayons by some miscreants.

The vestibules are pathetic and the coaches shake very badly.
29th night when I went to washroom I saw the next coach was wobbling very badly. It was as if it will come out of connection.
The jerks are present throughout the journey and I lost my sleep here and there.

I actually knew the condition of this train but had to choose it as there were a few emergencies at home.

Resolved that will never travel in this train no matter what.


The total travel time was 23 hrs 50 mins. This was the time taken for Vivek for VSKP ERN stretch where the scheduled time was 22 hrs 37 mins. The train reached VSKP with almost 4 hrs delay and reached here with almost 5 hrs delay.

The coach maintenance was poor and the onboard house keeping staff had done poor maintenance. The food was ok but it was costly.


The things I liked about this train are:
1. Masala tea served by the pantry.
2. Completed VSKP ERN stretch within 24 hrs.

The negatives are:
1. Poor maintenance
2. Delayed arrivals
3. Losing priority (I think so because of delay everytime)
4. Bedding was not maintained properly. There was dust.
5. Washroom condition (all know)
6. Encroachment in sleeper class (my uncle who came to drop us at VSKP thought that the Sleeper class was general seeing the rush).


These are the negatives and positives as per my opinion.
The ride would earn a 6/10 due to these factors.

Thanks for reading,
Regards,
Aidan

That path was under maintenance. Loosened earth, bushy vegetation, etc. One may fall especially during dark hours.

Ticket counters are on Both platforms. The one on the platform 1 is less rushy compared to the main one; and can be used if you are traveling to KTYM side as the train also halts on the same platform.
