Travelled recently from ANVR to GKP in this train and here are my detailed observations so that other travellers might benefit:
1. The Train starts from ANVR station, Platform 1 and the train is usually parked at the platform right from around 12:30pm even though the departure time from the station is at 3pm.
2. The Sleeper coaches are really old, not very well cleaned and travellers on this particular train esp in sleeper carry lots of extra luggage and fights over luggage space are very common. While the AC coaches are

well kept, the condition in the sleeper coaches is bad. Such a prestigious train should definitely have much more cleaner, well kept sleeper coaches.
3. The train is one of the most punctual trains on the Delhi to GKP route with very very few stops. If you get AC, then this is definitely the train to choose. The train reached every single stop usually 5-10 mins ahead of its actual arrival time at the stations, atleast till GKP.

Travelled recently from GKP to ANVR:
1. Usually arrives on Platform 6 at GKP, usually always on time at GKP..
2. Coaches are neat and clean.. Toilets well kept, bedrolls and all available for 25rs.
3. Pantry car available - atleast the vendors bring food and tea and all..
4.
...
more...
Train was 2hrs late in reaching ANVR - Reached at 2.30pm
5. Do remmber that becoz it's a garib rath, the side seats are slightly uncomfortable becoz there are 3 seats on the side...
Definitely a nice train.. Worth travelling again..

Travelled again in this train from GKP to LTT... Was travelling in 3AC and the coach was neat and well kept, manufactured in 2009.. The pantry car food is bad and definitely not worth the inflated rates... Since it was raining heavily most of the trip, couldnt really get out on the platforms and buy outside food...
The Kushinagar Express now runs avg about 45min to 2hrs late while reaching LTT.. But almost always reaches before 6am which is convenient.. The sleeper class coaches are old, untidy and badly maintained...

2542/2541 gkp-ltt is far more best option against kushinagar.it is 100 times better in terms of speed and cleanliness and halts . friend , you can use this option. its passenger responsibilty also to keep coaches clean by avoiding throwing of garbage within the train, spittting.shoes stamping on the seat which lots happen in kushinagar exp. until and unless such culprit people will not change ,nothing can be done. even rail authority are helpless.

IT IS BEST TRAIN FOR GORAPKPUR PEOPLE .BECAUSE OF SPEED AND IT HAS LESS STOP .KUSHINAGAR EXP HAS 45 STOPS WHEREAS THIS TRAIN HAS ONLY 11 STOPS. AND THE TIMING IS ALSO VERY CONVENIENT FOR PEOPLE WHO STAY AT GORAKPUR

Travelled recently in this train and here are my observations regarding this train:
1. Train arrives at Old Delhi station. So if u are a tourist looking to travel from Delhi, this might not be the best option since Old Delhi station is a good half hour autorikshaw ride from New Delhi...
2. Arrival at Old Delhi is usually about an hour late on an average. Train usually departs from platforms 3 or 5 at Delhi station. If u have a long wait, then consider waiting at the first platform where u

have a good airconditioned McDonalds store. Far better than waiting on the platform in the heat.
3. Train was far more neater and cleaner than i expected. But then my travel was in AC 3 tier and sleeper coaches seemed kinda old and not so well kept. In the 3AC coach, the housekeeping staff regularly wiped the floor with disinfectant and removed all the trash and all.. Well kept and clean.
4. Have consistently noticed that this train usually has seats available under the tatkal quota even when almost every other train on the Delhi-Gorakhpur route is full.. So if u travelling during peak season and struggling for a ticket, this train will usually have seats available in the tatkal quota.
