Train number 63227 Patna mughalsarai was halting at Buxar railway station on its route. The train had reached the station 5 minutes before its scheduled time. After 10 minutes of mandatory halt, the signal panel controller flagged a green signal, but  the train never got started.

Few passengers and even local railway staff noticed it. And when even after 20 more minutes the train stayed put, an announcement was made on platform, that the driver of the 6327 UP train should start the train.

Hot and fresh food is a sensitive issue as it is directly related to health and well being of the people. While people are appreciating IRCTC on how it has made easy to order food in train and get it on the seat, the quality of food is not what they …
