In this train is most bakwas long distance train I have traveled in terms basic amenities.
No Chargeing Points Avilable in S1-S2-S3 other Coaches I don't know.
Seats are in bad Dirty, Disreputable conditions.
When I use Water Tap no pressure in water
Cleanines
...
more...
not done by OBHS staff
In Dinner I take Egg thali which Changed RS 160 by PC
Taste was Quite Good
Overall this train is not good for Sleeper long distance travellers as I feel in My Journey From Bhusaval to Howrah

This train should get LHB. It has good TT but due to RSA, it is being neglected in terms of maintenance & cleaning.

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.

To go to Mumbai...always prefer this train...but now Railway has to change it's coaches into LHB..as well as Has RSA with Samarsatha express..CR should promote this with Wap 7 loco permanently.

One of the good Pantry car present.
Catering is done by Meals On Wheels.
Food is tasty (I felt the Cooks were South Indian as the Dal and Sabji were giving me the South Indian Masala taste).

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 !!

It might be an odd old coach (pre 2007 era), but these days railways fix charging sockets to old coaches too.
Attached are the pics of Jnaneshwari Deluxe & Samarsata SF Express's Sleeper coaches with charging sockets!

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.

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.

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 :)

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.
