The journey was started at morning time. We arrived at charbagh bus stand & there we entered in a bus of Lucknow Depot. The speed of the bus is very good & we enjoyed the journey very much. It stopped two time at hotel for breakfast & lunch. The journey experience was very good for me.

"A neglected railway route"

The train is on a neglected route. We booked our journey in 2nd AC but the coach was very old and AC was just okay. The journey which should not have taken more than 6 hours took longer than 9 hours. No catering service on the train. Toilets were very dirty.

" Seats are comfortable"

As usual experience. Maximum trains in India give you the same experience as this one. Seats are comfortable (I travelled in 2nd AC). Toilets were clean till I got down. Maximum times this train gets you to your destination at time. But as I travelled in winter time it was late as maximum of the long distance trains do in winters in India.

"Good train journey and runs on time "

5/7
Posted 21 Aug

Travelled by: Train

Travelled as: Group

The train was on time and the A/C 3 tier coaches are clean. The toilets are also well-maintained. But the route of this train takes few hours extra time. Instead of Amethi-Pratapgarh-Janghai, if it run via Nilalgarh-Sultanpur, then I suppose there would be at least one hour time saving to reach at Varanasi.

Sorry, we could not find preference of Travellers for this route.
