So after trying the 12127 Intercity superfast express and 11007 deccan express,it was time to travel on "Legendary" 12123 MumbaiPune deccan queen express.
Here are my observations:-
-->Punctuality:-A top most priority is given.Generally departs from csmt station 5 mins late but eventually covers the delay in remaining section.Enjoy the skips of dadar,thane and kalyan in style.!
-->Cleanliness:-C.R has maintained this train superb.And passengers too
onboard on this train makes sure the train is not littered (Based on CC observation).
-->Food:-Please don't eat your food on your seat.Rather,go to the "Dining Car",the speciality of this train.
-->Avability:-Good avability of CC's and 2S.Just make sure u book in advance if any festival/holidays approaching.
Any comment you wanna add? please do!
