if traveling to New Delhi from Indore / Ujjain and Intercity is full and Malwa is showing waiting till New Delhi you can book the ticket till Ambala cantt junction . In most days you will find train having tickets either available or RAC . Infact if you book upto 4 W/L Ticket just before chart is prepared you still got high chances of an RAC Ticket in 3rd AC ( tested just 30 mins before chart was prepared around 9 AM ).

I can state that Malwa express is faster than 22942, 22462, 12476, 12550, 19806, 11078, and 14034 in between Jammu and Delhi. I have taken taken this train from Dasuya and always relied on this to travel. Remember Indore (MHOW) and parts of Punjab/ Jammu served by this train are military cantonments. Near Dasuya we have Uchi Bassi, Talwara, and near Mukerian we have Tibri, Mirthal etc. For most local passengers, Pathankot to Jalandhar etc there is a Sri Ganga Nagar express which runs around the same time as Malwa. People prefer that as it is cheaper (no super fast charges). Only Military people and people paying fares for long routes utilize this train. I hope for the sake of Military personal and other passengers who travel for long distances no one will not write letters to discontinue its local stops. According to Ferozpur division manager, Dasuya sell (or reserve) more...

first/second/third AC tickets in Jammu mail, Malwa and Dauladhar than Pathankot/ Jalandhar for these trains.

Traveled in DD today from Chennai to KRP. train departed 10 mts late and arrived 15 mts late at KRP. We were in C2 105/106. Journey was comfortable. Good breakfast and other eatables available in the train and are reasonably priced. The train looks really majestic and was happy that I was also a passenger who traveled in this train. 4/5 ratings for this train

Best for last minute travellers. . Speed and punctuality must be lauded. Less luggage is advisable due to cramped luggage rack. Eatables and drinking water are available throughout the journey.

Seats though not as comfortable as Shatabdi but back to back like that of Shatabdi and way better than the face to face seating of Howrah Dhanbad Double Decker.. Also you get the foldable table in front of every seat.. Food available for purchase is not too good in taste.. Only vegetarian food available..

A good station to do railfaining. Just take any pune to daund bound passengers and its second halt from pune. Its bit far away from hadapsar pmpml bus stand. It has good amenities like drinking water and a small snacks center also. The amanora city mall and magarpatta city is hardly 1 km away from station. But doing photography at the station premises is bit risky as some times rpf roam here around and even the railway employees sometime interfere you for doing photography or recording.
So just walk a few 100-200m towards daund side and after the overhead bridge, comes a curve where you can stay for doing photography and recording. This area is bit silent and no crowd. Major trains

Only manmad route trains will be wappies. But that would be a great for photography. As few trains from SUR side would be with diesel alcos whereas MMR side trains would tear apart the route with Wappies.

There would be plenty of MMR bound trains for photography needs I think like Goa exp, Jhelum, Azad Hind, HWH Duronto, Pune PNBE, Pune GKP, Pune NGP, KSK, MYS/KOP NZM weeklies, etc. But it would be a treat to watch a combo of diesel and electric high speed action.

Super clean station and even a stall of fast food on the platform was wearing head gear and plastic gloves..never seen stuff lyk that in my life. Tracks were clean.In india on stations smoking was not allowed but not maintained but not here people were afraid of being charged.Dormitory was clean and hygenic.

As its most of the time punctual, you get ample time at GTL station. Some say, its a boring train because of the wait at GTl for coupling with Prashanti NIlayam. But use the time wisely and smartly. Even chain route takes same amount of time except that instead of being stationary, you will be on the move.
So use the train to Goto a First Show at Chaitanya Thatre (Best in town) or any other theater. Get relaxed and entertained. You can watch the movie, then have dinner in town before coming to the station to board the train. We did it easily and watched Shatamanam Bhavati Telugu movie. Attached our selfie (First Pic) at the theatre.

may also opt to hire a round trip auto to visit the district famous, ancient Kasapuram Anjaneya Swamy temple (Hanuman Temple). 14 kms oneway.

Or just simply stay at the station or inside your coach and take rest or explore the station.
