more about it:-
The 12137/12138 Punjab Mail is a superfast express train owned by the Indian Railways that runs between Mumbai and Firozpur in India. It operates as train number 12137 from Mumbai CST to Firozpur and as train number 12138 in the reverse direction.
It is 1 of 2 daily trains that connect Mumbai and Firozpur, the other being the Firozpur Janata Express.
The inaugural run of the Punjab Mail is thought to have taken place on 1 June 1912. Then known as The Punjab Limited, the train initially ran from Ballard Pier to Peshawar, taking British officers, civil servants, and their families directly from their ships to Delhi and the North-West frontier of British India.
In 1914, the originating station was moved to Victoria Terminus, and after the partition of India in 1947, the train's terminus was brought back to Firozpur on the India-Pakistan border.
The 12137/12138 Punjab Mail presently has 1 AC 1st Class + AC 2 tier coach, 1 AC 2 tier coach, 1 AC 2 + AC 3 tier coach, 5 AC 3 tier coaches, 10 Sleeper Class coaches, 4 General Unreserved coaches & 1 Pantry Car.
As with most train services in India, coach composition may be amended at the discretion of Indian Railways depending on demand.
It also carries a Railway Mail coach thus earning it the title of "Mail" in its name.The 12137 Punjab Mail covers the distance of 1930 kilometres in 34 hours 00 mins (56.76 km/hr) & in 33 hours 55 mins as 12138 Punjab Mail (56.90 km/hr).
As the average speed of the train is more than 55 km/hr, its fare includes a Superfast surcharge.It is hauled by 3 locomotives during its journey. A dual traction WCAM 3 or WCAM 2/2P locomotive from Kalyan shed hauls the train from Mumbai CST to Igatpuri after which a Ghaziabad based WAP 4 hauls the train until New Delhi following which a WDP 4 from Bhagat ki Kothi shed hauls the train for the remainder of the journey until Firozpur Cantonment.
