I want to reserve ffrom NDLS/delhi to mathura by a train starting after 7.30 am and return by a trainarriving in the afternoon/evening before 8pm.in ac class.I find most of the trains(except shatabdi/taj which start very early and return to delhi late in night) have only 3AC and 2AC. Can we travel sitting for short distances by taking tkts for ac sitting in any of these trains?Is it allowed officially? I want to visit the main krishna temple there and return which may not take more than 2 to 3 hours.
Please advise.

I travelled on this train on 12th Oct., in sleeper class. There were vacant berths.. The service altogether was very good. Greeting, news paper and bottled water on embarcation,Clean coaches, good food, regular cleaning and personalised attention. We have to appreciate Mamatha Banarjee for this service.

Mumbai rajdhani is perhaps number one in the list.It is not clear why the same standard of food and cleanliness cannot be adopted in others.One suggestion is to keep a box under lock and key inside each compartment inviting opinions from passengers on various aspects like food,courtsey etc. and periodically take remedial measures where necessary.All the staff shd. have a badge with their names. This will keep the staff on their toes.

If some user can send a scanned photo of a normal berth and side middle berth in different trains,with measurements,in 2tier,3tier etc. in first and second classes,this will answer many such queries on the subject. This will also benefit many tourists who would like to know what Garib Rath, Rajdhani, Duronto and other trains look like from the interior. I do not know whether rly. website or any newspaper has published this,as they do in the case of airlines which publish photos of seat sizes in various classes in ads.

Tatkal tickets are not available from the Internet services provided by IRCTC and the website doesn’t work properly. It says’s service not available and after 8:30AM it works fine because till the time all the tatlak tickets were booked by agents...
I think railway should stop the tatkal services through internet because it never works.
what do you say on this

the garib rath concept introduced by the railway ministry is understandable by them only.
we travlled during august from bhuwaneshwar to hatia and were shocked with the attitude of the attendent distributing bedrolls. firstly he was giving it at a price for which we did not even get any receipt . we complained to the tt but even he could not do anything.
secondly there was a stampede for getting the bedrolls as everytime the bedrolls are lesser than the number of passengers and is given on first come first serve basis
...
more...
. if u r travelling for the first time there is no one to tell u about it .
why cannot the coaches carry enough bedrolls to cater to all seats of the coach and why do they have to haress passengers by creating a demand supply hoax.?
why cannot the attendent come to each seat and ask if they want the bedroll or not and charge at the seat and give a receipt ?
why do indians have to fight for basic things in life always?
why cannot the railways create a better and practical approach to the bedroll problem and do away with the small thinking stratedy of creating stampede for the bedrolls.?
in an ac coach everyone needs a bedroll so the authorities should provide to every passenger and not think that today there are lesser passengers so the bedrolls are going waste ? after all the bedrolls are generating revenue for the indian railways so then why should they not provide it to all.
it was a sorryful state and i must say that the government authorities believe in making the common indians run around to get even the basic things in life.
is mamta banerjee listening ?
