Based on my recent visit to Vijayawada. I will give 5/5 for every facilities available here. One of the cleanest Railway station I have seen. BZA PF 1 have Andhra Bank ATM with Cash Deposit Facility. Superb Food Court with varieties of cuisines available. Even KFC outlet is present. Cleanliness Top Class. Ticket counters in every Entrance and all are equipped with POS (Card Swipe Machines) for cashless transaction. People and Railway staff are very helpful too. Important point if you want to avail Retiring Rooms do book in advance or else you won't get on the day of staying. AC Cubicles are available at ₹200 for 12 hours and Non AC Dormitory for ₹100 per bed for 12 hours. 12 hours slot are calculated from 6:00am to 6:00pm or 6:00pm to 6:00am.. Large Waiting Halls are available at PF1 which are very neat and Clean. 😊

Such a shame that the city is extremely dirty.
Inside the station it is top class. Bathrooms are very clean too.
How is the heat?
See after getting off the train we walked few meters towards the Retiring rooms so within that much time I felt like Kolkata.
Similarly i've seen that all the station's and cities in AP and Telangana are very neat and clean than other states or cities.Really the local people of that region are very good in this matter.
Rail Wire Free Wi-Fi service is available. Excellent speed. Currently I am using the service. Awesome.
Taxi/ Cabs are easily available outside the KGM stsn.. Standard rate for Kathgodam - Nainital in 4 seater cab is ₹400-500. in diwali season.
and ₹700 - 1000 in summer season (April, may ). Summer is the peak season for Nainital,. but if u want to explore real view of Garhwal Himalayan range..(Nainital) than the perfect season is post Diwali period. and for snowfall its Jan end to mid Feb.. (depends on weather)..
While picking cab, U may be cautious and awaked.. As many cab driver will follow you.. by saying u ₹1000-1300. for Nainital.. But if u are smart in bargaining.. than they will take you in ₹400-600.. As. on my trip on 22/10/17. I got cab in ₹450.. .
As per pic1 . This is the point where ur Cab will drop you in Nainital..(Near Naini lake, Bus stand).. They won't go further this point..

A useful tip for next tourist to Nainitalfrom IRI
Superb.. Thanks for the Pic also..
For new bus stand exit from platform 1 or VIP gate, you can get private toto service also, you will also gate bus for Purulia, Kashipur,Raj bari, Manbazar or other destinations of south Purulia. And for bus to go to Joychandi or Raghunathpur you can exit from platform 4 or main building booking counter side. You will also gate local toto, auto service from this side.
Journey from Ahmadabad to Surat or Valsad who want to dinner in train not much option ,only find tea and some snack like bread cutlet and tea from local vendor in AC class only and in limited quantity, at Nadiad some local vendor take order of dinner at Vadodadra (BRC) but many passenger complain about quantity and pries. and BRC vada-pav and dal-wada on all platform stalls available ,choice is yours what you like to eat in this train.
