My Past Experience with Indian Railway

It is my own experience. I was going to my home town in winter season and due to extreme cold weather and fog, my train named ‘Poorva Express‘ was running late by 8 hours. It was not only with this train, all trains were late including Rajdhani Express. I am sorry to say that my train was scheduled at light before one day and in Indian Railway Official Website, it was showing on time.

I left my home with my family and went to railway station by booking private auto. But when I reached to the station and found the train got late by 8 hours. I was shocked to see the notice board. I slept in waiting room with my family and waited for 8 hours. I did not return back to my home due to late night. When I got up in the morning and again checked the status of the train and found 8 hours late again. I had no option except waiting on waiting room. So, this was my experience.

I just want to help people regarding this, so that you can check and make yourself updated when you are going to travel by Indian Railway and running status can be checked by National Train Enquiry System.
