This tip is based on my couple of journeys between Ahmedabad and Mumbai.
1. Tickets and availability: Even in the peak season, this is a train on which you can bank on. I traveled during the Christmas season and was successful in getting the tickets. The main advantage and disadvantage of this train are its timing at ADI. It arrives at ADI at a very odd time of 1:10 AM in the night due to which many people avoid it and making it available for others.
2. Coaches and Comfort: During my entire
journey of 6h 40m, I didn't sleep for a minute. All credit goes to the coaches which give you heavy vibrations and jerks. A couple of times in the night, I felt the train has derailed due to the jerks. If you are looking for comfort, please don't book this train. I was on the lower berth once and side upper berth the second time. Lower berth journey was really unpleasant.
3. Speed: "Blaster" is the word that comes to my mind when I think of my experience travelling in this train. After leaving Ahmedabad, it literally traverses as a rocket blasting through stations. Being a railfan, this is one thing all of us crave for but at night, even railfans require comfortable sleep which is largely disturbed by the blasting speed and coach geometry. Speed is one department where this train doesn't disappoint at all. Continuously hits the 100 km/h mark.

Waiting rooms (General, Ladies and AC) are on 1st floor. When we went to AC room, there was no one to check our ticket. So, we made entry in the register on our own. There were only 2 or 3 people in the room other than us as it was around 10:30 PM. The AC was ok but smell from toilet was too much.

1. you are coming from CR side,
2. your train terminates at CSTM,
3. you have to go to BDTS to catch another train,
4. you have heavy laggauge
its not evening time i.e 4.30p.m to 9 p.m,
and 6. you are alone,
then, don't deboard at dadar. Instead go to CSTM and then catch the CSTM-Bandra-andheri Harbour local. As these local start from CSTM,you have 70-80% probability that you will get seat or else a place to stand.
Alight it at bandra and then go to bandra east side. There you will get sharing auto or even personal auto to BDTS. From bandra to bdts,it will hardly take 10 min.
Also if you have less laggauge,and you want to reach quicker,then take slow WR local from dadar towards virar side and alight at khar road. Its just 5 min walking distance from khar road to bdts.

If with family or heavy luggage, then autos are good. But if with less luggage and alone, or with friends, then why waste the precious enjoyment moment of locals and getting yourself stucked up in mumbai road traffic in auto near BKC area and sion area.
