I happened to travel in the vintage 1994 manufactured 2AC coach of 12327 as in the video /blog/post/1846139
. The coach was full of cobwebs and dust coming out of the AC vents and stinks. There was horrible noise and as the coach was moving or braking it was unbearably shaky. I regret to pay a premium for 2AC for safety and comfort for all the way from Howrah to Haridwar. I wonder why passengers are paying for travelling in such a whopping 20-25 years old coaches in such a terrible condition. Why IR and ER not scrapping these Grandfather Coaches?
