Good train to travel in Sleeper class (also AC classes) between Howrah Mumbai and vice versa.
It has best of ICF new coaches & nice cleaning by onboard 'Janitors' (cleaning staff) whom at a time may demand bonus very politely (baksheesh) on 2nd day evening...

Well,after my recent travel tips on 12261 durunto and jnaneswari,this time I am writing about 12809/10 train,based on my expernice.These train is having high stoppages between Cst and howrah,but a very demand train.Like Jnaneswari,geetanjali,durunto express(cst-hwh route)this train is also having highest priority,despite many stoppages.If u r a railfan,You should board this train.Since it has many stoppages,between cst and hwh,u can do rf,but beware,train has only 2-4 minutes stoppages for small stations.Do come back in time,else u will miss your train,lol.
Cleanliness:-Cleanliness is average.Same for sleeper as well as Ac coaches,but better then Geetanjali
am bit surprised that this train reaches mostly on time or even before time.Kudos to these train!
Food:-Average.Better buy food from nagpur and othrt stations
Railfannning is good in this train,no intereference by pantry guyss/staffs(based on personal expernice)
:-) :-)

This train has very old rake. atleast the one on which i travelled on 20-12-15. All the Ac coaches were built between 1999-2004. Except B3 which was a '09 built. The condition of the coaches are somewhat average inside and outside. Cleanliness is average. House keeping staff try to clean but passengers make them dirty within minutes. The toilet conditions are PATHETIC. specially the end which is attached to S13. all sleeper class passengers use this washroom and these two are very dirty. Cleaned only once in the morning in BSP. Thats it. Nothing else spotted. I was in B1 63 & 64. Availability of water is good.
