An overnight journey

Overnight journey and the timings are convenient. Wish cleanliness of the coaches was better though. Even the second AC coach was not clean and had a very old look to it. The bedroll was being dragged along the floor by the attendant. The TTE was good and he finished off his work just after the train started facilitating early sleep. Train arrived late. I hear it is a normal happening with this train.
