Huge margin is provided for this train between MMR-NZM section(21 hours 30mins) with just 3 official halts(BSL, BPL,JHS) in between.
It crawls at the outer section of many stations like Khandwa,Itarsi, Bina,etc.
Its travelling time can be reduced easily upto 16:30 to 1700hrs(MMR-NZM section) from the present 21:30 hrs.
The pantry is very good as compared to most trains, no rush in SL coaches

of the W/L crowd as it has few halts.

If travelling from Pune to anywhere in karnataka beyond Miraj , and also If from Miraj/Belgaum/Dharwad/Hubli to Yeshwantpur, then don't waste your money in tatkal instead book in Waiting lists and in most of the cases it will confirm up.
Reason - therd is a huge demand for this train between Nizamuddin ( Delhi ) to Pune . Hence many seats are vacant from Pune onwards

"Beware" the catering people are not disclosing the menu and the rate that is provided by the RAILWAY/IRCTC for a standard meal i.e DAL,CHAWAL,ROTI, SUBJI and WATER with pickel and CURD is Rs 50/=, where as these guys are asking RS 100 with a menu of their choice, in train we have food just to cut the hunger not to enjoy the family lunch/dinner.
also the chai and coffee is Flat Rs 10/- where as IRCTC rates is Rs 7/=, water bottle is sold at RS 20 /= where as in platform it is Rs 15/=, this is an open loot going on and no one is there to protest it.

This is to prevent short circuit and save people from burning to death while sleeping. I would say good move from SWR.
