Always prefer this train over Udyan express for travelling to Mumbai from Bengaluru and vice versa because of the following reasons
1) Food - Pantry Car is available on this train so no problem for food even though pantry car is purely vegetarian it is certainly better than the food the hawkers/unofficial vendors that serve inedible food on the Udyan express.Even no problem for drinking water on this train
2)Cleanliness - OBHS is available on board.Cleaning is top class in AC compartments.But average in SL compartments but definitely better than Udyan Express.
3)Coaches
...
more...
- Coaches are pretty new on this train where as in Udyan it is of 1990's make and all the cusion have come out in 2A coaches of Udyan express.
4)Ticket Availability - GN tickets are easily available in this train but Bengaluru to Mumbai falls under PQ which is very difficult to clear.So for GN quota tickets book tickets from Salem and chose boarding point as Bengaluru City/Bengaluru Cantt. and book to any station in Mumbai.
5) Charging points - Charging points available in each bay.
6)Punctuality- The only problem of this train is punctuality this train is puntual in reaching Coimbatore but however in reaching Bengaluru it acn be almost 2.5 to almost 9hrs late.It is a very rare case this train arriving Bengaluru on time.

Thank You Soumitra ji ,
I think if the link can be updated in "TT : info " users will have easiness to get right info and quick service. #Moderator is reuqested whether he can explore the possibility of creating automatic link where 'e.catering' is available.

RAC means you are allowed to enter occupy the berth and share with other one. and your allotted berth will be in the multiple of 8 if it is SL class. RAC is advanced than WL ... it has better chances of confirmation,
Reservation against cancellation RAC ... go ahead and prepare for journey ..

While travelling in AC 1st class of this train, as an Elderly passenger, I was pleasantly surprised to see a "Full Staircase" leading to the Upper Berth. I am not sure if this is offered in all trains, but I am seeing this for the first time. A welcome improvement.

The cleaning of this train is ultimate. They have completely overhauled the cleanliness over the last one year. On-board house keeping facility is available on this train. Toilets are frequently cleaned by on-board staff in addition to the contract cleaning at Solapur station. Soaps, hand wash is available at toilets. Floors inside the coach also cleaned at time to time. Perfumes are sprayed at regular intervals. To be short, inside compartments will make you feel at genuine 3-star hotel. 2AC coaches are older look than 3AC coaches. Hence prefer 3AC over 2AC while booking.

I'm very sorry, I did not travel in SL coaches in last one year and did not even visited there to know more about it. However, with my old experience (over five years), it was average. Further, the return train 11014 cleanliness condition is very very worst because of very less buffer time given at CBE.

Had travelled in this train almost a year back from cbe till pune. The train arrived late from ltt and after just a 2 hr wait in the pf departed late from cbe. The 2 hrs were used to clean the coaches. Cleaning was very ordinary. Cant blame them. The buffer time at cbe is extremely less.
There was no onboard housekeeping in the train during that time for sleeper

Agreed... In return 11014 train, the cleaning is very ordinary because of less buffer time. I am also not sure about on board housekeeping for SL coach even now also. But, if the railways can change the TT of this train by providing an additional rake, it will be beneficial for passengers, which is more unlikely though.

Earlier when the departure from cbe was at 5 am, there was a buffer rake because the train that arrived at cbe at 7am only left next day at 5am so almost 20 hrs buffer time for maintenance,cleanliness also. After departure changed to 8am from cbe, the rake that arrives in the morning from ltt leaves again within 2 hours. Also its a logistical nightmare for the ac coach staff since they have to carry lots of extra bedrolls etc from ltt itself since nothing is loaded from cbe

Only vegetarian food is available in the pantry of this train. But quality of food is much much better and comparable with mid-range hotels. All the timings (starting from Dinner on Day 1) one will get food on this train. Never need to worry about packing food if you travel in this train.

You're right... However in fried rice packet they provide spoons, that is for sure. Further, in south india, people do not use spoons most of the times. Even in hotels, one need to ask for spoons, if one needs. Since I also do not prefer spoons, I did not notice this point.

Many people do not use Towels and many Towels supplied to passengers goes missing on this train, said attendant. But they never hesitate to provide towel whenever passenger asks.
