This is the only train, which has seats till the last moment!! It is due to the odd arrival times at HWH. Gitanjali Express and Mumbai - Howrah Mail are the most popular trains on Mumbai - Howrah route, due to the arrival timings at HWH. Duronto is catching up fast!!

Not exactly, you can see Sleeper class is highly patronized & AC class availability is due too large numbers of AC coaches (9 coaches), but still this train is not that popular like Gitanjali or Howrah Mail...

Re# 1009416-3            Tags   Past Edits
atleast in ac,i think empty seats are due to large no of ac coaches.also i prefer this due to its timing in hwh. 4am early morning in hwh is awsome time to reach.
i think it has very less useful stoppage after bsp.i mean pple travel to rou or ckp from bsp,and as far as i know there is huge crowd for kgp that like to board at bsp.
overall due to high no of ac/sl coaches and low demand of onroute stations due to odd timing,its easy to get reservation.

Yeah, you are right. These days even SL seats are not available on this train at some times. Maybe it is gaining popularity. It,s sister train, Samarsata, is going full too !! It has a very good ARR time at HWH.

Well,after 12261,this is the best train to travel to howrah.Through the arrival at howrah station is odd(i.e at 3.35 am) still it is a better train than Geetanjali and cst-hwh mail(via nagpur).This train is very well maintained by C.R.Jnaneswari,being a super deluxe train,has a top most priority in the entire route.No one dares to overtake this train.Through the coaches are old (some sleeper/ac coaches are of 1995-made),Still one can travel in comfortable mode.I don't know about the cleanliness of sleeper coaches,but the cleanliness of Ac coaches is up-to-date.Even Ac attendants and food staffs behaviour are very good,through not as good as 12261,still it is better.Dinner/Lunch/snacks of these train is extremely awesome.One must try 'Noodles' of this train.
About the punctuality:-As i said,this
...
more...
train get high priority throughout the journey.So,it reaches its destination before or on time.I have travelled in these train 8 to 10 times and it reached howrah exact 3.30 an
Recently,In may 2015, have travelled in these train and it reached howrah one hour before time.So,u can understand how much the popular train is.
For railfanning,passengers/Staffs might interrupt you
'One of the best maintained trains of india' is what i will say'

Absolutely. I travel at least thrice a year to Kolkata from Mumbai on this train. I cannot remember anytime, when the food was bad. All along it was quite good and filling, with good service. You can even get extras, like extra rice. If you tell the waiters, they will remember it and serve it to you. of course you will have to pay for that, followed by a healthy tip to your server, at end of journey.

I am one of those persons, who generally avoid having Pantry Car made foods to maximum extent.....
Having said that, Kudos to Central Railway and their wonderful base kitchen, I borrowed this Noodles from my sister and seriously loved the taste.
:)
It is wonderful move by CR and the Pantry Car of this train does have wonderful food :)

One of the best maintained trains on this route. I would say the BEST train in terms of cleanliness.
OBHS does a brilliant job. While departing at night from LTT, it starts with a neat and clean rake.
Next day morning itself OBHS starts doing its job and tries their best to keep the coaches clean.
Biggest thing is they don't even

ask for any "Bakhshish" in end. You can personally ask them for individual cleanliness problem or pest problem.
They will help.
Personally experienced while traveling in SL class from LTT to HWH.

Charging sockets were present in Some SL coaches (In my journey, S3-S4-S5-S6-S7-S8 coaches) had Charging sockets near every seat. Rest all SL coaches had two charging sockets each near the Door.
But do keep in mind, the charging sockets near the seats were of 500mA rating. So do check out before using your Mobile charger.
Many people were suffering problem due to Higher Ampere Rating of their Mobile Chargers. And using laptop charger in these sockets is not possible.

Words cannot describe the excellent service this train provides to its travellers.
Food - Pretty tasty food, packed in an hygienic manner (as per IR standards). But above all the food provided is wholesome. Non Veg Lunch in AC 2 Tier included the following :
Chicken Curry (Tasty gravy and 2 big pieces of chicken), Aloo Curry, Dal (Again, found it pretty nice) Rice, Paranthas, Pickle and Curd.
Had
...
more...
Bread butter and both cutlets and omelettes for breakfast and they were of good quality as well.
Train Run - Experienced an awesome run from Howrah to Durg. The train arrived almost each station 2-3 minutes early, thanks to decent controlling.
Coach - My coach was A1 which was a 2004 made, freshly POHed coach with one charging point in the coop and one for the side
Cleanliness - Very clean indeed ! Maintenance was superb
My rating : 4.5/5
The name Super Deluxe suits it very well indeed !!
Getting reservations in AC Classes is easier for 12101/12102/12151/12152 due to 9 AC Coaches !!

One of the good Pantry car present.
Catering is done by Meals On Wheels.

Even after LHB it's maintenance won't be improved as LTT coaching depot's maintenance is pathetic & I too share Mr.Rahul's point of view.
