This is insane!! No need to add an AC coach as even Sleeper coach is always vacant.

They have already implemented this formula when the train was inaugurated, but later failed due to less patronage. This can be successful if they introduced ac chair cars and run the train during the day.

New Delhi - Darbhanga Bihar Sampark Kranti just has 1 AC 3-tier coach, that means only 64 people can travel in 3 AC in Bihar Sampark Karnti Express. In those 64, 20 are reserved for tatkal, 4 for senior citizens, a few for passengers for intermediate stations and a few in HO quota. Only 10 berths are available in general quota for this train in 3AC and waiting list goes upto 400. Shame on IR and ECR.

SAMASTIPUR Jn can be said one of the cleanest railway station in North Bihar. But there are certain things that need to be improve. Here is the list.
* Coach Guiding System(CGI) is the biggest failure of the management. I have never seen these in working condition creates a big confusion for passengers while catching their trains.
* Lack of basic facilities like Mobile charging points on every platform, proper food stalls(although you will find few snacks), lack of seating space. lockers, beware of Pickpocketing, Don't hope for the ATM installed in
Station premises always work
* The management is not installing lifts on these platforms(6-7,4-5, 2-3). Hence, people could have only use lift for upstairs but not for downstairs.
* Darbhanga bound superfast trains don't have glasses on their window(toilets) in the sleeper class. As a division Samastipur focus on these areas as well.
* Due to lack of inter connectivity of railway tracks and Non- electrification of Platform 2-3, you will never expect few trains like Vaishali Express on Platform No1 or Rajdhani Express on Platform No 7.
* The momentum of renovation work is extremely slow. For last 5 years, the station looks like in under-construction.
* Recently Samastipur lost its position in terms of cleanliness with respect to its competitor Gorakhpur and Chhapra.

This was a best train untill NDTV raised the issue of Delayed ECR superfast delhi bound trains which cause, this got less priority with respect to other trains like Vaishali, Swatantra Senani Express results maximum delay in Bihar. Security is another major issue specially if you are travelling in 2nd/3rd Ac. So be alert.

Nice train in terms of speed and punctuality.
G 11 coach attendant is a thief(Not surprise if you see some humsafar express blankets), so beware. TTE/TC allowed waiting ticket people, which results like traveling in a crowded passenger train. Stinky blankets and toilets can easily make you ill. Admin will share this for humanity and help railway to take some action. Because precaution is better than cure.
