Train No-2955

A picture is worth more then 1000 words.

Now,if you are thinking that i have exxaaggeerated the entitre thing by putting up this foto.
Beleive u me ..nothing less then this could explain the situation on 2955- BCT-JP Superfast Express.
























For this diwali ,and new year i just had a couple of resolutions---
I M NOT GOING BACK TO JAIPUR FOR THE NEXT DIWALI.
n
the reason for saying so is nothing but the journey of the lifetime i had in 2955 .

A train where booking a Tatkal seat can fetch you Endurance Award.
A train whose passenegers are awarded Red n White Bravery award .
A train where meeting people who were so close to the Confirmed Seat.
A train where atleast 100 passengers would claim the Waiting List 1-Title.
A train where people are willing to stand in the the Loo (both English and Indian) .
A train where you get to know about the High's and Low's of a Gujati Family.
A train where you can meet Jignesh,mahesh,suresh,Ramesh Babu and Deenanath ji.
A train where you would need to wait atleast 10 hours before you can actually see the "loo"

A train that teaches you --DONOT USE INDIAN RAILWAYS DURING VACATIONS.
n if you are really desparate use nothing less then a 2nd AC.

I agree...NEVER use Indian Railways during Vacations. I went through similar in Awadh Express. X-(

I agree and extend ur point ..its not just during vacations fr me :(.. Whenever I want to return home i have to book the train at least 2 months before, and due to the late booking (for Indian railways 1 month before the travel is LATE :x)have to always travel in the slowest and the dirtiest trains..IT takes more amount of time and patience to book a train (and the enormous time it takes for the great indian railway sites to open)than it takes to write a report...
And on top of that I always get the most boring and irritating personalities on my route :(

That is one crazy pic! Makes the trains here in Bombay feel like 5 star luxury vehicles in comparison.

a pic at the time of India Pakistan when the last train left from there... right??? ......... :P

agree that vacation journeys are painful, but never seen something like this. yaar par crib kyun?? u wanna go home so do thousands more. this is India. i guess journeys like this are to be remembered for life time. the most exciting journey would be for the unreserved man who was sitting on the front top of the train. isnt it??
