train #11028 2A - AC 2-Tier Sleeper, Indian Railways, Feb 17, 2019
Train departed and arrived on time. Fine accommodations; our 2AC berths came with clean cotton sheets, mini-pillow, wool blanket. Learned later that linen napkin was also available for the asking. Will do so next time (helpful while eating when train’s in motion, or as hand towel after washing). Cabin curtains and surfaces a little dingy, but not unpleasant. This being our first train in India, did not know what to expect. So I will mention a few things: Vendors frequently walk the aisle selling water, tea, lassis, food, even ice cream. We had pre-ordered a meal through a third-party delivery online; one meal arrived and another did not. Next time will bring my own light snacks instead. Used a small cable lock (4’) to secure bag to the ring below the seat. Likely not needed, but lock was recommended by friends. There’s one electric socket in each cabin, shared by 4 people. Ours worked for about half the trip and then stopped; would have been good to start with phone fully charged. Despite our learning curve the trip overall was great and can’t wait til the next one.
