There is free wifi internet working on this train and it's easy to register with pnr and id
How is the speed? Does it work smoothly on whole route?
train has free wifi service , once registered passengers will receive password on mobile phone using which they can surf internet indiarailinfo and post trip updates :)
i wrote internet iri and post updates ... internet covers all sites
Just joking. Don't be angry.
Net speed avg....but few times, it is very good. If u use it at unusual slots (eg late night or early morning) u can expect a very good speed in general
I guess everyone starts to download movies and watch them, thats why slow speed...
youtube etc might result in slow speed....
how to register for wifi service?

Nice tip,Ashwani Kumar.. You can post the Train tip right from your Trip Diary.It will appear under Train tip.
No need for hash tag.Please try
very useful thanks for sharing :)
It's difficult to pick a single tip category for this train. Food, speed, bedding etc- everything is good. Probably the train with highest priority in this country.
Only two negative points from pessimistic view:
*Goes into WL very fast.
*To all apart from those who think that as this has LHB rake so it does not shake its waist or who are too optimistic
You r right WRIK . This train is not suitable for railfanning.Firstly doorplating is quite a difficult task & secondly the windows are not suitable for night vision outside. Only in daytime the outside scenery could be seen through them .
m a frequent traveler of this train since last 2yrs.. everything was perfect until last 17th Oct when IR raised the fares n blamed it to Catering services.. the Food quality n quantity degraded since then...
n yeah... it do get jerks... dont know whats wrong with IRCTC i always get seat number 71 n any Bclass fir chahe wo B1 mile ya B9 I mean i preferred SL due to vision n privacy point of view lekin hamesa 71 number hi milta hai, n as its close to door.. n just above the wheels.. jerks jyada feel hote hain :D
Same with me, i like SL seat when traveling alone, but always gets the seat which is next to the door (no matter when i book the ticket i.e. at 8am on opening of the ticket window of travel date, or during last few availability of seats, always near the door seats be it SL/SU or one in 6 of L,M,U always next to doors), very disturbing...
mujhe bhi 71 no. mila tha but not in 12302 I was in 12306 in B1
again got the seat next to the door, both in up & down train... no matter when i book, this time i booked at 8am when window opened... then also next to door...
okkk bt I have tried from irctc booking and I preffered the b9 coach they have given me the B9 39 in 12306
And when in 12305 I preffer the B1 COACH they have given me the 39 number seat
my fav. seat is the side lower
My fvr8 is SL too, but they always give me one next to door, dont know why....
B1 i got 71, and B3 i got 7
so If you book the ticket from irctc their is the coach id and in that coach id you insert the coach no. B9/B7 and choose your SL berth FOR DOWN journey
and for up journey you enter the B1/B7 and Choose SL berth
Thanks, will keep in mind when i book next....
if you wil go to washroom in western style you can control your body by catching with the kundi of the door of washroom. But If you are in Indian style washroom you will be shaken really
and for the railfaining its better to do railfining from the windows of side lower
