Feb 20 2018 (11:19)   12869/Mumbai CSMT - Howrah Weekly SF Express

Very badly maintained. Gets around 12 hr TAT at CSMT, still not cleaned. In the whole journey ( i was onboard till ROU) only bathrooms were cleaned that also next day at BSP and then at ROU. Though new LHB coaches but maintainance was also bad in contrast to HTE based 22845/46 which also has new LHB SL coaches but that is very well maintained and cleaned. The flushes of bathrooms don't work, taps are loose or broken and leak. Most of the wash basins are choked, cleaned in BSP but again after first use it got choked. The floors of bathrooms are always wet with some amount of water always present there. My observation was in S3,4,5. For maintainance and cleanliness I will rate it 1.5/5. Had the pax not behaved properly, I can't imagine what would have happened to cleanliness in the journey from CST to HWH. Railways...
should Thank pax for doing their bit to keep train somewhat clean or rather should say " less dirty".

This is one of the dirtiest Sampark Kranti i have boarded on 5th June from Hz Hazrat Nizamuddin till Yeshwanthapur, I was with my family in 3AC and as the train proceeded towards its destination the train started getting dirtier with all kind of filth from chips wrappers to tea cups, and till last there was no cleaning staff available to clean, toilets were full shits as the automatic exit system in toilets were not working, toilets were stinking like hell and there were no one to listen, when i demanded the complaint book i was denied by giving silly reasons. so my dear fellow passengers be ready to embrace the filth and stinks.

With the new non-discharge toilets installed the toilets are a major hazard. On my journey (Sleeper class - June 2017) one toilet was completely full and waste had come up to the metal brim. The smell of ammonia was overpowering. All this happened by the night of the first day before Mughalsarai (2200 hrs). By 0600 the next morning the train was 3 hours late and another toilet was overflowing. This is atrocious and a big problem when planning a journey with families or old people.
