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).
One problem is faced was Availability of Ala-Carte Meal i.e Rs. 55 price Veg meal.

pantry staff were very reluctant to provide this Food.
Rest all were fine.
PS: Don't forget to try the Hot Samosa at breakfast time with tea.

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 !!

Still average speed should be much more as Mumbai mail with three times more stoppages is very close with miniscule difference.

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.

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

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
