Hi i had travelled with 12419 Gomti Exp. in Second sitting i would request railway authorities to change the category of this train to express or mail rather the putting it in Superfast as it always get late to get at new delhi or lucknow and we are been charged superfast charges whereas it has several stoppages and non punctuality of timing and running making it worst train to travel in NCR.

Train is mecca for cheap travel b/w delhi to lucknow.Experience will be horrific if you go by unreserved ticket.Second sitting tickets are always available even tatkal charges are only 10 rs.Train is always jam packed but if you get the reservation you are the boss.Most travellers prefer gomti over others to avoid long distance bihar crowd and secondly they fail to get reservation in any other train.

Do unreserved / unauthorized travellers bother the reservation holders in 2S class in this train?
Usually it is seen that people do not consider the 2S reservation holders any different from UR ticket holders in certain regions / routes.

I boarded this train thinking that it is a super fast from Lucknow to Delhi. I could not get a confirmed ticket. So I bought a general class ticket and hopped on the train thinking that I can get a seat once I board by paying the difference amount. I got in the train at Lucknow. The train was pretty empty till Kanpur. I got a seat till Kanpur. The ticket checker never showed up till this point.( ticket checker was never there on board as I never saw him till the train reached Delhi) At Kanpur, the train got so full that there was no space to even sit on the floor or stand comfortably. There were more people with unreserved ticket than there were with reserved tickets. Initially I thought I would be in minority as I don't have reserved ticket. But I was proved wrong. Expecting the...

crowd in the train to stay for nearby station as they looked mostly locals I was standing For sometime. It happened so that the crowd remained the same even after the following stations. There were times where people getting on the train were more than the ones getting off it. I wonder what would have been the condition of General class if reserved class was like this. There was literally no space to move around.
I came all the way standing from Kanpur to New Delhi. There was no space to even sit on the floor of the train. It was like travelling in inhuman conditions. There were old people suffering, there were people sitting in the toilet. On top of this the train got delayed by two hours.
In the summer with UP burning this was the worst train journey ever. The surprising this is, not just my coach, but the whole train had people 2-3 times exceeding the capacity of the train.
DO NOT TAKE THIS TRAIN IF YOU ARE TRAVELLING WITHOUT A TICKET. YOU WILL NEVER GET A SEAt.
Maybe booking AC CHair car is the only option if one wants to travel peacefully. I mostly travel in sleeper, and make a point of not booking AC until there is no other option, this train ride has been a nightmare. I've travelled quite a few times in General coaches too, but this was worst than that. This was the condition of a reserved coach. TT never came! I could have done this journey without any ticket.

Ah. First timer in Gomti. Happens. :)
I once had a confirmed seat in AC Chair Car from Aligarh to New Delhi (The last 131 km leg). I was late and had to run to catch the train. Boarded some 2S (reserved) coach. Trust me, i could not make my way through the vestibule. Had to keep standing till the next halt.
And don't think AC Chair Car is all good. Check my /blog/post/756347 to know the reality of CC of Gomti.
