train #Viceroy II #1008 VIP AC, ViceRoy II by 12Go, Jan 20, 2019
On the voucher the time of departure was 10.57 in Ella so we where at the station at 10.30 but the actual departure was 12.30 (waiting 2 hours). Seem to be a wrong time on the voucher. And the snacks to buy in the bar in the train was very limited.
