Apr 21 (21:39)   20402/Lucknow - Varanasi SF Shuttle Express | LKO/Lucknow Charbagh NR (9 PFs)

If you want your favourite seat in General Class of Lucknow Varanasi Shuttle Superfast then follow my trick. This trick is used by most of the daily and experienced travellers and newbies are not familiar with it. From Lucknow, this train departs at 6:00 PM and usually the boarding starts after 5:15 PM. But this train is either already standing at the run-through line between plateforms or at the yard towards Dilkusha Cabin. You can sneak into the train when the train is standing there. Some gates are usually already opened and you can enter into that coach before the train actually enters the plateform. But you have to come 2 hour early to do this trick😜

Useful:एकदम सटीक।
Here in CG/undivided MP in earlier times unemployed youths going to appear for exams/interviews at Bhopal, used to enter CDO in Bilaspur and gatecrash through open doors in the just maintained rake of Chhattisgarh Express in the pitlines itself to secure window seat in General Class. This was in 90's decade.
Today's unemployed youth don't think so much over enjoying on parents income....

Even I have done the similar thing in INDB-HBJ Intercity , it used to be parked in stabling line between PF 3 and 4, so I used to board the GS coach of this train while train being parked there, and I am talking about my college time 10-11 years back.

Stabling line at bpl is bw pf 3 and pf 4, but at Bilaspur CDO is 1.5 kms distant from platforms and also guard is present there to block unauthorized entry, though security is insufficient to watch over 4 pitlines and 3 stable lines.

Many people do their train change over and boarding-alighting at Lucknow and get confused by seeing their trains starting from two different stations-LJN & LKO. This tip will surely help those.
See the image attached. The Blue arrow shows the Lucknow Charbagh station called as "Badi Line" and is under Northern railways. The black arrow shows the Lucknow Junction station called as "Choti Line" & is under North Eastern Railway.
The Lucknow Charbagh station is a pass through station and trains doesn't need rake reversal here. But Lucknow Junction station is a
Terminal type station where Rake reversal is compulsory , as you can clearly see in the image.
Now if you have to go from Lucknow charbagh to Lucknow Station, then come outside of the LKO from Pf 1 side and from the exit which is towards CNB side (Thats because if you come out from other exit which is towards varanasi side then you will have to walk bit more.) and after coming outside , see towards LEFT hand side. You will see another building in front of you. Just go there and enter it. You will be standing at Lucknow Junction. This will hardly take 8-10 min for this change over. So if you are having a change over here at LKO/LJN , then easily 30 minutes are more than enough for Buffer (just giving example:Never keep small buffers for change over. Atleast keep 2-3 hrs buffer for all change over of trains at any station.)
This LJN station is newer as compared to LKO and has lesser options for everything, be it food or books or anything else, as compared to Lucknow Charbagh station (LKO).

Food tip- rail comesum outlet at the station is bad in terms of food quality. The pastry available at outlet was stale n had some wierd smell.
One can just walk across the station and get high quality packed lunch or dinner along with mithai n milk shakes from the shop called as "Manoranjan"
****they do not use onion n garlic in their food but man food tastes amazing. Prices are definitely cheaper than comesum prices with best quality.

Depends on the rider. Sometimes they do, sometimes they ask you to come to the entrance.
