Absolutely not happy with the toilet in this train. What does cleanliness means for this train? Really horrible. There should be a cleaning halt at some intermediate station for the convenience of passengers. No soaps/ liquids in toilets. Most of the toilet volves are broken and they are very ugly. The bed rolls are kept in between toilets which makes you feel very uncomfortable to use toilets.

sir u r travelling in 3ac of Garib rath and not any other Rajdhani or superfast exp that will provide u soap or liquid. Most passenger in this train are from lower middle class and middle class and u can't expect to be very sophisticated as u r. it is duty of Railway to keep the train clean and they do it. i have traveled in this train. it was clean when departed from kochuveli but the people in it made dirty. children throwing their chip as were the wrapper down and even some assholes were even spitting under or near there seat as earlier they use to travel in SL or unreserved coaches. you will receive not what you idly wish for but what we justly paid. you rewards will always be in exact proportion to what u pay.

Never buy tickets from Veraval to Mumbai as only S10 and S11 tickets are available from Veraval. Buy from Rajkot as tickets available for S6 to S11(Veraval part) and S1 to S5(Okha Part) and buy a express ticket from Veraval to Rajkot so that one can seat in reserved coaches from Veraval to Rajkot..

A Super Crap Train. Traveled By His On Last Saturday. It Reached Vapi 15 Mins Late. I Had A Ticket Of 1st Class. Hence, I Was I A Perception Of A Comfortable Journey. But I Was Shocked After Boarding . What I Saw ?
1. A Dirty, Messy Compartment Which Wasnt Cleaned Probably For A Year
2. In A Coup Of 2, Great WESTERN RAILWAYS Started Accommodating 6 People [ 3 In Lower Berth & 3 In Upper Berth]. I Failed To Understand Whether It Was A 1st Class Or A General Seating

3. 3rd Gender Activities Are Happening In Front Of The TTE, Who Opted To Be A "Silent Audience"
4. People Boarding The 1st Class At Will Without Bonafied Tickets
Will Never Ever Travel By Super Crap Gujarat Express..... Indeed A Train Of "Gujarat Model"

If nonsense stuffs are happening in "many trains" that doesn't mean civilised people will stop traveling by train. It's the nonsense stuffs which will have to end

True. Agree with Mr Das. If something happens commonly does not mean we take as it is. Chaltha hai attitude is killing all of us. See Tejas train news. Shameful

Tip for people boarding in GEN classes: Those who want to board this train at BBS in GEN class, be prepared for a battle(This is the term I prefer to use)
The 18105 ROU-BBS Intercity arrives at BBS on platform no.3 with a delay of around 5-10 mins(usually within 13:05-13:10), Then there is a battle and wrestling between people trying to boarding and getting down the train. If you are not a seasoned daily passenger of this train, please arrive atleast 30 mins before the arrival of ROU-BBS intercity(18105) and go to the last positions(i.e the SLR and the 2nd last UR compartment is the best choice)A huge crowd tries to board the UR compartments, if you can run with the window
of the arriving train(before it stops) then throw your handkerchief or any cloth on a seat and the seat will remain reserved for you. Remember please arrive BEFORE THE ARRIVAL OF 18105 ROU-BBS INTERCITY.
If you arrive after the arrival of the above mentioned train then there's almost no chance of getting a seat in GEN class you have to stand at least till DNKL or ANGL, during weekends you may have to wait for a seat till SBPY.
Tip for tourists: If you are arriving in Odisha from outside and considering this train as a connecting one for a short distance journey in GEN class, please book in 2S,where you can have a seat for you and can settle your luggage but with your luggage, you don't stand a chance in UR coaches, so please book a seat. This is also advisable for those travelling for the first time in this train.
Speed: This train is an aggressive one with great speed.
Punctuality: This train gets delayed by an hour on an average by the time it reaches ROU, in some cases the delay may be more.
Cleanliness: This train is not cleaned at BBS, only at ROU as BBS it stays only for 40-45 mins, hence the 2S and UR coaches may not remain clean, however the CC coaches are clean, and comfortable.
Railfanning: Thanks to curvy and scenic path between ANGL and SBP, one can have a good railfanning experience.
Food and catering: One can opt for e-catering at Bhubaneswar railway station, from Dominos and other choices, again one can also buy food from local vendors within the station premises. Another option is the Green Chilyiz fast food stall, situated at the master canteen square, there one can have a variety of food items to choose from and get it parceled, however for that the passenger must arrive at least one hour before the arrival of 18105 if opting for GEN travel, if reservation is there then arrive at least an hour before departure, considering the time to get your food packed.
In short: Opt for the general class at BBS only if you're a regular passenger, else if your journey is greater than 100 kms booking in CC is advisable, otherwise book in 2S.
This tip is also applicable for those boarding the train at DNKL too, as the train will remain packed till ANGL or SBPY.
After SBPY, the train will become empty.

In fact, ICEs of ECoR are better than this. However, since becoming SF, this train has made a lot of progress, which is nice to witness. It has become even more aggressive nowadays.

Looks like Sleeper is the new Unreserved. After Gaya there were unreserved travellers trying to occupy any little space that was available. After Allahabad people were sleeping on the floor, aisles and common areas near the toilets. TTEs were only checking to see if they had [unreserved] tickets. Charging point did not work and the berths were dusty. I was practically forced to spend all my time in my upper bunk. And, of course, the usual Delhi-Allahabad sector delay which meant arrival at 0930 instead of 0600. Deeply disappointing - I did not expect a mainstream train like Poorva to be so shabby.
