Sep 18 2018 (13:14)   22922/Gorakhpur - Bandra Terminus Antyodaya Express | GKP/Gorakhpur Junction (10 PFs)

22922 GKP BDTS Antyodaya Exp Is A Fantastic Option For Urgent Travellers On GKP BDTS Route.
◆ Since It's A Weekly Train There Is Absolutely No Rush From Gorakhpur (Thanks to the Inconvenient Timing 0325 Hours)
◆ Seats Are Well Cushioned, Mobile Charging Ports,RO Drinking Water Available In Each Coach Are Some Highlights.
◆ Fare Is Slightly High But Managable (+15%)
...
more...
The Only Rush Point is Kasganj Station Where It Gets Filled Upto 70 - 80%
◆ Speed Is The Other Point Which You Will Enjoy,It Is Awesome In GKP-GD,CNB-MTJ & KOTA-BDTS Stretch.
◆If You've A Company Or With Family You Won't Get Bored In This Train.
◆ I Give It A 4.5 ★Star Rating Out Of 5
●Highly Recommend Train●

Bro I Think The Biggest Problem Is With Timing & Second Would Be Less Stoppages.
Starting Time 0330AM From GKP Then Skipping Entire GKP GD Loop Line Except NUH.
Again Same Thing In CNB MTJ Section.
These Are The Major Reasons Why Patronage Is Less As Compared To Other Antyodaya's.

◆ If You Are Getting Waiting List Ticket From GKP To CNB Or MTJ Do Check From DEOS It Comes Under General Quota & Most of The Time Tickets Are Available in ₹415 as Against ₹400 From Gorakhpur Which Comes Under RLWL Quota.
◆ One Important Thing :-
Book Tickets The Previous Night Itself.
For EXP - Departure Time From CPR Is 05:30 AM
...
more...
So The Chart Gets Prepared By 09:00 PM On The Previous Night Till DEOS Quota & For GKP Quota Also The Chart Gets Prepared By 09:30 or 10:00 PM.
◆ Most Of The Time You'll Find 100+ Seats Vacant In SL & Plenty In AC Class Too,Simply Because This Train Only Has A 'Super Fast' Tag Although It Does Not Get Priority Like a SF.
◆ You Can Trust This Train Only If You Have No Other Option Or You're Not Time Bound.

Ticket booking facilities are horrible at MTJ.And huge queues are there at ticket counter.
Though it's a big jn. still railway authorities lack in proper management of ticketing window especially in Unreserved ticket window.
Now, railways must introduce unreserved E-Ticketing facilities for passengers.
More trains are required from MTJ to AGC/Gwl.
Emu,Passenger,etc.

Day trip NDLS _ MTJ _NDLS
If travelling in group .
Accomodation :
rather than Staying at MTJ it would be better to Halt at New Delhi . .
(as we did) .
.
...
more...

Best mode of transport :
Take TAJ Exp (12280) from New Delhi . to MTJ . or any other train (Current availability will be there For most of the train)
After reaching till 9am .
Take Auto /bus . . and visit the temple .
.
Points of interest :.
There are lot of temple in this area .
and near by vicinity.
It would be better to visit . Only A few .of it. i.e.
*Krishna Janam bhoomi at Mathura
*Iskcon temple at Mathura
*Banke Bihari lal temple at Vrindavan
*Iskcon temple at Vrindavan
* Prem mandir.
*Gokul village (Choice based) .
Would not recommend to go Gokul , as there is only a small temple and Nothing else .
Local Transport :
Bus are also available . But auto will be convinient .
Book a Auto , outside the stsn itself for all this temple .
While fixing a Auto , Bargaining is must .
All depends upon your Bargaining strength .
As per my visit , The auto driver started from 1000 and finally ended up at 500₹ .
Or
One can also go by sharing Auto .
Food :
*Lots of restaurants are available .at Mathura and Vrindavan , as per different budget . .
*To try something different ,Take different variant of food from the Street .
vendors are having small stalls on road.
* Some popular Option can also be Comesum or food plaza at MTJ stsn .
(we Tried at Food plaza , and it was Good) . .
Return :.
Nearly till 5 PM all the Major temple can be covered .
For going NDLS ., we boarded TAJ Exp .(12279)
In Between time .,
At pf#1 , There is Good option for snacks and Thali .
And Did some , Railfaining at Station .
