Good train for GIMB Passengers to NGP/R/SBP/BBS.
A. Is a weekly train with OK timings at Ahemdabad.
B.Tickets for Gandhidham/Vadodara/Surat passengers to Nagpur/Raipur/Sambalpur / Bhubaneshwar are NOT easily avaliable. Book them 4 month in advance.
Car not avaliable (However E-Catering avaliable at Nandurbar and Sambalpur).
D.Bad timings at Raipur (After Speedup in next TAAG it may be speeded up to reach Raipur by 0100 HRS)
A. Fastest connection between Surat-Bhubaneshwar
B.Cleanliness is just superb and Coaches are also newly made.
C.Rush of unreserved passengers is less in SL.
D.In return direction it covers a good amount of delay. (However 12993 reaches its destination delayed by 1.5 HRS).
A.Carry your own food as on board vendors are also less
B. Book tickets 4 months in advance as RAC Clarence is also difficult in this train (Personal Experience)
C. Passengers could use E-Catering(served at Nandurbar)
D. Reaches its destination (as 12993) with a delay of 1.5 HRS. Return train is little bit good and a good delay coverer.
Thank you.

General Observation regarding Speed and Punctuality-
➡️If 12994 Puri-Gandhidham SF Express reaches Raipur with Delay of 30-45 minutes, then expect some speedy action till Surat, MPS Skips, and BT arrivals except slowdowns at Udhna Outer, Kuram( near Badnera)
➡️But if 12994 reaches Raipur with Delay of more than 50-60 minutes, then CR trolls it from Azad Hind from Raipur to Bhusaval, despite that a on time arrival can be expected at Surat. Between Nagpur-Bhusaval it will maintain a delay of 1-1.5 Hours, after entering the TV Section expect a MPS run.

➡️As 12993 it DOES NOT get OTed by a single train. The scheduled overtake between Jalgaon-Bhusaval mostly does not happen by Puspak Express.
➡️The The run between Jalgoan Nagpur mostly witness Slowdowns at Badnera(very common), and Khapri. Except these stops it gets full clearance
➡️The run from Puri to Raipur and vice versa ALWAYS adds up a delay for it.
➡️Not a Speedy run in between Raipur-Puri.

यदि ये ट्रैन वाया गोधरा दाहोद रतलाम भोपाल नागपुर रायपुर
होकर डबल ओर पूर्ण विद्युतीकृत मार्ग से चलती तो
स्पीड बहूत कवर हो।जाती भले ही ये मार्ग मात्र 79 किमी
ही लम्बा है

Yes, I know TG and Navjeevan are best train in TV Section, but never underestimate a normal train, because it may be the one giving highest average on some sections of its route :)

Return mai koi train 70 ka average nahi deti. UDN-JL mai 19064 ka scheduled speed hi 69-70 hai shayad.

The only thing which I remember is that it was 4 hr late at JL then 2 hr late at ST and arrived 50 mins late at GIMB. Can't remember the exact date but it was during the period I left this site.

Some best runs I remember till day
1. ADI-PURI @ 62 KMPH(Highest average for any train between ADI-PURI)
2. GIMB-ADI @ 65 KMPH( Trolled at Sabarmati outer. Was onboard)
3. NDB-NGP @ 66 KMPH ( Doubling works in TV Section, so was detained)
JL-NGP @72 KMPH (My first trip onboard it and on other later instants. Regulated at Khapri. A average close to Durontos on that route.)
5. JL-UDN @ 65 KMPH (During Doubling)
6. The best one was averaging 75 KMPH in JL-UDN( Resulted in heavy BT arrival) . That day for once Navjeevan was looped for it.(although this is 3-4 years back AFAIK)
I think this much is enough for this train. Although I might not be able to remember some other good runs but TV Section definitely cannot decide which train has higher priority as the route is not too much congested. Plus Tapti Ganga IS a good train, and undoubtedly far better train than 12993/4

For those who visit Gandhidham for the first time--
➡ Cleanliness is top notch. Not only the station platforms but the station premises are also clean. the FOBs are a bit unclean. Cleanliness of most train whose PM lies with Gandhidham have astonishing cleanliness. ( top 7th clean station of country)
➡ Escalators are absent but porters are avaliable in adequate number and charge you depending on Platform of your train and luggage.
➡ Food is avaliable on all Platforms. However for those travelling by long distance train, they should take adequate water and food stuff because till Ahemdabad, no station has food and mineral water stalls. Even vendors do not come to sell mineral water and food stuff.
➡ Transport facilities are very good good. If you are looking forward to go to Bhuj, White desert, Nakhatrana etc. Then many people having vans provide you this service. These people will greet you at Gandhidham Railway station entrance( Main) asking you if you want to go to Bhuj, Nakhatrana etc. They charge you with acceptable Fees. Or else GSTRC bus stand is about 2-3 km from Railway Station. Autowalas present in adequate number which take to different part in Gandhidham.
➡Safety is very good. They will check your ticket at the entrance when entering and exiting the station. So you better not tear off the Ticket after TTE has seen your ticket if travelling to Gandhidham.
➡ RPF police station present on PF1
➡ Trains originating from Gandhidham generally start from PF3. 12993/22973/12937/16505 are fixed.
➡Trains from bhuj/to Bhuj usually arrive on PF1.
➡Railfannnig not very excellent due to presence of RPF which prohibits photography. Plus ALCO / EMD spotting will be less.

Hope this helps. THANKS!✌

Enjoy hot evening meals/ snacks at GIMB like Pakora, Bhajjiya, Vada Pav and Tea etc at leisure at GIMB, since train halts for atleast half an hour at GIMB, and stalls on PF#1 are near and clean and hygenic,
If required, stack up things for evening dinner too at GIMB Jn.
Next best stop is Jaipur in the morning for Break fast etc.
