Book from Champa to avail GNWL ...for journey from Bilaspur onward towards Pune ..GNWL has very high quota and the chart prepares one night before the journey ...RLWL is very hard to confirm in this train ...ex: for NGP to PUNE ( 3ac RLWL ticket cost ) 1200 ..while if you book from Champa ( 3ac GNWL cost 1500) , but GNWL ticket confirmation chances very very high ....

One among the best trains I've ever traveled however I'll rank it #1 in my books I traveled once in sleeper class. Travelled from BSP - KPG. It was a bit crowded Between BSP to Raipur Due to local middle aged and old peoples who board the train while going to their jobs which were a bit irritating and trouble especially for ladies and families. They actually hold up a monthly pass. So i preferred travelling in AC from the next time. This train runs on time at a great speed and many times arrives early. The speed is just lovable and haves a very short time halts even at major stations like Raipur and Bhusaval (if is late). I'll just suggest to travel in AC coach and I'm sure that you'll enjoy your journey. :)

The interiors as well as exteriors of coaches are also dirty / unclean / paints peeled off conditions / rusty, etc. I have seen this train many many times at Pune and all the rakes used for this train are unfortunately in bad shape.

Its only for 3rd a.c
If you get the last seat or the first seat of 3rd a.c coach i.e seat no. 7,8,63 or 64, then i assure you that your night time sleep will be not good.
Personal experience sharing, i got 63 number seat of B2 coach. As there is no curtain and plus the cabin glass door is transparent from top which allows the light from tube-light which is near the door to come inside. This doesnt allows darkness while sleeping at these seats where else the rest of

the whole passengers sleep peacefully in darkness.
I request the IR to atleast put curtains on the cabin doors or attach curtains just on the last/first bay side seats i.e 7,8,63,64.

I traveled in SL between Kopargaon and HWH when the train used to be late due to Maoist fear(World's largest democracy scared of Maoists. Lol). Maybe in 2010,2011 or 2012. Cant remember the exact year. Worst train regarding cleanliness. Worst gutka spitting and non toilet flushing crowd. Nightmare of a journey.

I remember travelling in sleeper in july 2012 from pune to kharagpur. At that time it was good and clean. But as it passed Nagpur, from chattisgarh till tatanagar, it was heavily crowded due to WL passengers, hawkers and general ticket holders. That was a nightmare and from that day onwards i always prefer this train's a.c class.

Food available in pantry is good. Not best but still bearable.
During my last trip in this train from KGP to PUNE, Ordered for veg lunch and pantry provided it before durg jn.
Food consisted: Rice, 2 parantha (no roti is made in pantry), daal, mutter paneer, mixed bhaaji (aalo & parwal), pickle, salt, water. Food was hot and good.
Pantry persons are very

rude in attitude. They don't have a stable rate for water bottles. Sometimes they sell it for 20 , whereas after sometime they sell for 15. If reason them , then they say "lena hai toh lo, warna mat lo."

* A very nice, punctual n hi priority train whole route
.
* Since its the only SF train between Pune n Howrah --> almost full in Sleeper with lots of Waiting List Passengers too ex Pune only.
.
*
...

Daund halt is 20min atleast. Purchase the food items, dinner etc. As Daund Station has got much better fooding facility than Pune Even
.
* Do all the purchasings of Snacks, Buiscuits etc from Pune Daund or Manmad only if dont wish to depend on Pantry guy as after this there would be no such things to purchase before Nagpur n all due to early morning arrival at Akola Badnera. Badnera pf wont be having too much opened stalls at the time.
.
*This train has got very Dedicated staff for service n Bangla passengers can conversate in Bangla too as they are Bengal based :)

I've seen Azad Hind Express used to arrive at Bhusaval & it used to be overtaken there by Jnaneshwari Deluxe, hence there after it follows till Howrah in between inverval of 20-15 mins...
In return direction journey Jnaneshwari Deluxe use to trail Azad Hind Express right from Malkapur - Bhusaval or sometimes even from Nagpur itself (in some rare cases Jnaneshwari Deluxe overtakes Pune bound Azad Hind Express at Akola - Bhusaval section)...
Thanks!

Well, the times I have travelled, I was lucky to have Azad Hind at my tail. On all occasions Azad Hind arrived late at Bhusawal, but only by minutes. In Chattisgarh (RPR - BSP), you will notice a third track. I have had instances when Jnaneshwari is stooped at any outer signal, Azad Hind will slowly crawl in on the third track. Many times it has happened that Gondwana Express is preceding Jnaneshwari, so it will be Gondwana, Jnaneshwari, and then Azad Hind, all back to back, in quick succession. While coming from HWH, either Jnaneshwari or Azad Hind is ahead, depending on which train started ahead from HWH. I have also noticed that Azad Hind was hauled by Bhusawal WAP4, and in one instance, by a Bhusawal WAM4

Toilets in AC coaches are mostly clean. Cleaning done at Bilaspur where the train reaches almost 10-15 mins before its scheduled time and this gives ample time for the cleaning & maintenance staff to keep the coach clean. Similar task are performed at other important stations en-route and overall one can experience a hygienic environment as this is what we expect from a long-distance train.
