Journey Date: April 18, 2024
Train: New Delhi - Lucknow AC Express (12430)
Class: 3AC (2024 Coach)
Quota: General (GN)
Seat: Lower Berth

A Comfortable and Punctual Night Journey
On April 18, 2024, I traveled on the New Delhi - Lucknow AC Express, a renowned overnight train. It lived up to its reputation for punctuality and comfort.

Cleanliness and Service
The 3AC coach in the 2024 series was spotless, creating a welcoming atmosphere. The Ticket Examiner, a young female, was professional and courteous, ensuring a smooth journey for all passengers.

Onboard Amenities
A standout feature was the reading lamp, allowing me to read without disturbing others. This thoughtful amenity added to the overall comfort.

Peaceful Experience
The journey was peaceful and relaxing, providing a much-needed break from the city’s hustle and bustle. The train’s punctuality added to the overall positive experience.

The New Delhi - Lucknow AC Express offers a clean, comfortable, and punctual overnight journey. I highly recommend it for anyone traveling on this route.

Please do not stay at Veekay Tourist Home (close to exit of pf 1 Yesvantpur Jn). Its the worst hotel experience we had. When I booked the hotel by checking their site, I found it fine and it is closer to Yesvantpur Jn. When we checked into the room we noticed that there was no intercom to call reception, TV did not had remote and the TV itself was not working.
All night I was bitten by bedbugs and I could hardly sleep. I had rashes on my arms, back, forehead. Next day found that there was no hot water in our room. Checked with reception and they said that we can take bath in another room. That another room was having
smell of cigaretts, liquor. We complained all this to reception but they did not even bother to apologize or give us some sort of discounts. We checked with few others in the hotel and found similar situation. We checked out immediately the next day.
The driver of car that we hired told us that there are some good hotels near to pf 6 of Yesvanpur Jn.

This train slows down too much after Panvel station.If you wish to travel towards CST, alight at Panvel station, take a local train towards CST.You will save nearly 1 hr 30 min.Its really surprising.

Great Great Great
BUNKER ROOM FOR 12 HOURS : Rs. 999+Taxes (12%)

Pros :-

1. Clean Room & Toilet. (Only Western Toilet)
Cheapest Accommodation (For Private kind of room) available in the city center of Kolkata.
3. Variety of Food available at IRCTC Executive Lounge near the reception of the hotel. (No entry charges for Stay at the Retiring Room. Only Charges for Food as applicable in Menu)
4. Very fast Check-in Process.
5. All the Staffs were friendly in nature.

Cons :-

1. The price which we are paying here. We should have gotten at least a private bathroom.

2. Lack of Staff at Night. So, No service was available at night after check-in.

Note : Booking gets full at night all the time. If planning to say one should book the room in advance for the convenience.

Highly congested in 3AC too. If one plans for a pleasure journey, please avoid this train. Already 9 seats are allotted in one cabin, and you invariably find atleast two families within one cabin along with non-ticket children and the total number of people will be nearly 13 per cabin. Luggage is very very higher levels than permitted and you can't find a place to leave even your shoes.
