As Expected, The Journey, Which Was My 2nd By This Train Turned Out To Be Another Nightmare. I Guess Railway Board Has Taken The Passengers For Granted Considering The Fact, This Is The Only Direct Train Between Calcutta & Indore.
I Had To Travel By This Crap Train As A Flight Ticket For Today Was Claiming To Be INR 10000/- . Unlike Last Time, This Time Shipra Left Howrah 20 Mins Late... And Maintained The "Delay" Till Mirzapur.... And Managed To Reach Cheoki Junction 2 Hours Late. Evetually t Reached Indore 1.5 Hr Late
The Matter Of Fact Is..... You Dont Have A Pantry.... You Dont Get Food, Forget Food..You Dont Even Get A Cup Of Coffee..... I Ordered My Food From Travelkhana....But Again Had To Wait Till The Train Reaches Bhopal.... Noticed The "On Duty" RPF Sleeping.....
At Last, But Not The Least.... Like Any Other Trains, AC Compartments Have Weird Position [ At The End Of The Platforms]....Where You Dont Get A Shed [ In Case Its Raining]....You Dont Get Stalls To Buy Your Food & Drinks ... Is This The "Service" We Get After Paying A Healthy Amount For "AC Reservation" ???? I m Sure.... Railway Will Keep Continuing Reminding Us About "INCREDIBLE INDIA"

Long distance trains like Shipra should have Pantry Car.

So as to supply spoiled food to passengers ? Better way is they should improve the catering services from various stations enroute.
