This train is also known as Deluxe in Northern Region. Dont know about other regions, as i haven't been able to find. But, whenever my relatives used to visit us, they always said we are coming by Deluxe.
One of Cleanest SF on Mumbai-Delhi Route.(May be cleanest)
In its early days this train runs as A.C. express combined between NDLS-ASR with HWH-NDLS A.C. exp. (now poorva exp.). On that time both trains called as deluxe exp. on their route.
Wo kahte hain na ki puraani aadaten jaldi nahi chhootin so log aaj bhi in dono train ko deluxe kah kar bulaate hain.
Golden Temple ko aaj bhi bahut log "Frontier Mail" bulate hai...
This train's local name in Mumbai is Deluxe. Just like Frontier this train is famous for its old name and old fame
Most of the long running SF trains from BCT/BDTS are clean indeed i.e. Paschim Express, Golden Temple Mail, Jaipur SF Express. Avantika Express and Vadodara Express fall in second category as they are not as clean as the above mentioned pioneers however still they are bearable.
in eastern part of India, Poorva known as Deluxe
as Poorva was the first AC Deluxe express of IR when the Air Conditioned technology has been introduced, later IR added SL class n renamed it to Poorva.. still older generation call it Deluxe ;)
just like Mumbai-Hwh Mail ko aaj bhi Imperial Mail bulate hain ;)
Yes aur Modern Legend Jnaneswari ko log Super Delux hi bolte hai...
haan.. yaad hai late 90's ke aaspaas CC kuch aisa tha Jnaneswari 1A 2A 3A ... :P

Rajdhani livery use karte they...Ye train ki Add bhi aayi thi CR waalo ke taraf se...
"Fully AC SF train with Rajdhani Type Coaches" Jab introduce hui thi tak Bahut Kam halt they..
LTT-Kyn-igp-Bhusaval-Ngp-Raipur-Bilaspur-Rourkela- Tata-Chakradharpur-Kharagpur. Baad mein Akola aur badnera add ho gaye...

Kya karein sir, jab Train hi legendary ho, to blog bhi chalta hi rahega..
log is train ko pahle western ke naam se bulate the...
food quality was very bad in 1st ac , travel dt. 11/04/14
In Non Rajdhani trains food for all classes whether sleeper or 1st ac is the same!!
Did you lodge a written complaint with the Pantry manager. All pantry managers has complaint books.
Otherwise Coach Supervisor too have complaint books.
I always thought that food for all other classes was loaded from a base kitchen while it was made in the PC for 1A?
It's So Good. Not a bad Food
Now food is better comparison to my last journey .
what was the menu ? how was the bedding quality as people often complaint about poor quality bedding in this train ?
Urgent need for removing the KLK slip coaches and diverting these coaches to ASR side....
Alternately 22451 can be extended to KLK and can be made into a tri weekly train or four times a week.......
All pax are not Ex ASR, considerable pax board/deborad at UMB and onwards towards NDLS...
first it was good when it had less halt but now it is just like sabarmati halting at every place like andheri,Dhananu road, navsari, meghnagar,gangapur city, hinduan city, bharatpur junction, bayana junction in wetern railways so some halts should be reduced
Dahanu Road was its halt since it's birth ......
