It is time to get use to the Train journey. It is reasonably less cost and highly safe compare to bus, There are some crooks on the trains do cheat travelers by various tricks, where this required some attention.Otherwise sorry for the bus owner where now he need to justify all to the Insurance team.

These buses may be Chinese made with substandard quality?
