For those who wish save money:
If you want to travel from Coastal Odisha to Howrah for sunday arrivals , and unable to get confirm ticket (or wish to save some money like me) , then just take a unreserved ticket for Howrah and board this train (on saturday night departure from puri). Go to general bogie and alas you will feel as if you are inside a reserved bogie. The coaches are completely empty (whereas shri jagannath express general coaches crowd is very famed). Just board your coach and choose whichever seat you want and go to sleep calmly. Nobody will disturb you as hardly anybody boards. All the crowds are swept away by Shri jagannath express.

a good night's sleep, wake up at 6 am and you will find yourself near Hijli. Pack up and alight the train at KGP. Then board any local (Lots of local are present and your same unreserved ticket till HWH will work) bound to HWH. Preferable wait for the Meedinipur Howrah Local and by 9-9.30 am you will be at HWH. So for total journey taken from Puri to HWH, then you will cover it in exactly in 9hr which is much lesser the time taken by Shri jagannath express (which takes 9hrs 40min). Plus nearly Rs 135 saving without any compromise for leisure.
PS: This trick only works for saturday night (this train) and friday night (VSKP Digha SF runs on Fridays on same slot). And this will not work for any other day. So before planning anything, kindly check out your date & day of journey.

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    A minor update, but may impact many members: Hereafter, FMs will be able to delete invalid Red Flags on Imaginary trains. Red Flags can be removed by FMs, only against specific complaints filed against the blog. This does not give all members the right to complain against EVERY single red flag they...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far. It gives me immense pleasure in congratulating them for running the team diligently, professionally, competently and above all, without a shred of controversy or bias. The FM position...
