Booking Preference Tip.
If you have to travel from Delhi to Coastal Odisha , then your train availability searching priority should as: (For SL class)
1. Purushottam express (No doubt about this train;Book this as your 1st preference)
2. BBS Duronto express (only for Bhubaneswar people ; Punctuality is poor; But very safe and secure as no unreserved or daily travellers are allowed to
...
more...
board)
3. Odisha Sampark Kranti express (Puctuality is poor but its better bcoz NO unreserved or WL crowd boards this train due to Least halts in UP)
4. Nandan Kanan express (Better than neelanchal bcoz takes shorter route; punctuality is poor but seat availibility is better than Neelanchal)
5. Neelanchal Express (You will hardly get CNF seat in this train; Very demanded train as its the only train connecting Central UP with Odisha & puri)
6. Hirakund Express (Takes the shortest route; Good punctuality; but problem is its speed and total time taken; Huge number of halts and unreserved & Daily travellers board this in SL class)
7 ANVT BBS weekly express (Train best suited for Western Odisha; takes 2nd longest route and punctuality is poor ;Not much beneficial for coastal odisha)
8. Kalinga Utkal express (This should be the least preferred for travelling to coastal odisha; Very slow and heavy crowded throughout the route with Unreserved , WL and Daily travellers;Maintenance is below average;Takes the Longest route so that whole northern coastline of odisha is covered but still takes hell lot of time;Don't take SL class in this train unless have NO other option)
Now For AC classes,
Only opt Rajdhani or Purushottam. Getting seat in BBS rajdhani is easier and journey would be punctual.

Punctuality very good ??? Kya bol dia aapne sir...Its Excellent. Balasore pe Utkal aur Purushottam do train aati hain at midnight from Delhi, but Puru majority 1-1.30hr delay rehti hai but Utkal humesha ontime.
But kharabi yeh hai ki Koi leta hi nahi hai from Delhi to Coastal odisha. Itna circular journey kaun kare. ;)
Western odisha jyada prefer karte hain Utkal.

Thats right...ECoR ne more faster ANVT BBS SF de di for western odisha, but woh kabhi bhi on time nahi chalti. Always 4-5hrs delay.
But this old horse Utkal always stay on time whatever be the season. Best preferred by Wetern odisha only.

Yes...the pantry standard is average below standard.....Instead good pantry is present in Odisha sampark kranti which serves good quality food as per my last journey experience.
But then we have to compromise on Punctuality factor if we check on pantry quality.

delhi to Odisha travelling people don't like Utkal exp but the people of MP , specially from jabalpur side (Boarding from Katni) and going to Balasore-Bhadrak, people still prefer Kalinga Utkal due to its punctual and direct route.
End to End people don't prefer but Intermediate travellers prefer it very much due to its good seat availability.

The reason is absolute stoppage of starting any new train for odisha.
The last train that was started for odisha to north india was ANVT BBS Weekly SF which was for Western Odisha on the same departure slot as of Odisha Sampark kranti.
After that till now there is NO trains started. All the RM have completely ignored to connect Puri , a one of the Biggest tourist destination with Jammu-Katra or Haridwar or Amritsar North Indian cities.

Problem with Hirakund is Huge Number of Halts and very slow TT with Heavy inflow of MST/UR travellers between Delhi-Bina.
Whereas in nandan Kanan , the rush is bit less as compared to Hirakund....If ECoR somehow Speed up Hirakund express (which is easily possible) , then i would say it can climb up to atleast Rank 2.

Problem is that a train with as much halts as Hirakud will need little more slack...
I wont deny that its not feasible...
Ofcourse its feasible, at the same time too much halts should be removed.
P.S: removing stops aint that easy :P :P

But we ppl of Balasore could never see TKD WAP-7 of Utkal exp as both up and down trains arrive here late at night... isliye hum Rajdhani k WAP-7 se kaam chala lete hain... so till now only 2 trains of Odisha r getting WAP-7 from start to end... Duronto ko kabhi kabhi as an offlink mil jati hai WAP-7 but very rarely..Purushottam should get it upto Puri instead upto KGP..

As it has total 5 set of rakes, out of which some coaches have sockets near seat and the older ones have sockets near the main door.

Being a Sampark Kranti, it has very less stops outside of its home state[Odisha]. This ensures that hardly any unauthorized passengers board SL class[even GEN class is better than others]. Seat availability is much better[easier to get than Neelachal or Nandan Kanan].

If you have to travel from odisha to delhi, then trust me never opt this train. It will leave you stranded in the midnight time at NDLS. It will never reach NDLS before 0000hrs. Its dangerous and risky to go out to anywhere at this mid-night time.
Instead opt Nandan kanan or Purushottam to go to delhi. Nandan kanan will leave you at NDLS by night 2100 pm or 2200 pm. And Purushottam is best train. It arrives NDLS in the morning which is safest time.
And for return journey from delhi to

odisha, i would suggest you to take this train instead of Nandan Kanan as odisha sampark kranti has cleaner-better rakes, better food and is safer than nandan kanan exp.

Rake is bit old and rusty. No doubt its E.Co.R, so you have to be happy that atleast there are charging slots at each end of sleeper bogie.
Food by pantry is not that good,but as the train has very limited halts,so no options for outside food. But the main problem is that it never enters odisha i.e jaleswar before 11 a.m. It runs late by nearly minimum 2-3 hours towards down direction.

Poor maintenance broken fittings, dirty berths, dirty unpacked bed rolls and empty train. the whole coach was foul smelling and dirt was visible on the AC vents.

Yes the maintenance is not upto the mark by BBS ECoR KUR Division. They don't properly clean it up at the yard. As it don't somedays also share RSA with Prashanti express, may be that's why don't properly cleaned up.

This train's bad luck is that it goes via mgs-ald-cnb route. So this alongwith nandankanan exp always gets late. ECoR should divert this sampark kranti via bsb-sln-lko-mb after the mb-gzb electrification with halts at bsb-lko-mb.

But this will add more 40kms to the train. Lucknow route is also quite busy

Bt 40km excess is nthng tht much important as via this route it will maintain its schedule...and even it has no halt from mgs to ndls..so no prblem regarding local people.

This is a biweekly 'not so popular' kind of train. So unauthorized pax count is very less.
