Travelled on this train from BLS to HWH.
The train is now having all LHB coaches instead of traditional ICF coach. This change is done very recently and therefore, people travelling on this train will surely experience much comfortable ride.
The coaches are new with sufficient leg space, wide windows, clean seats, however, the washrooms were not clean until the train reached KGP where it was cleaned. Lunch for this train is loaded at BLS. Lunch served at around 12:30PM and the food quality and quantity (when it is Lunch) is
not satisfactory. The arrival of this train at BLS and HWH were on time.

Travelled from Pune to Howrah. Next day morning passed Durg @ 7:20 and was very much impressed to note that the train maintained a constant momentum till Bilaspur and arrived 20mins earlier. It again maintained the same momentum and reached Tata almost 30mins earlier and finally reached HWH 10mins earlier. The total journey in this train was exhilarating as it performed at its very best.

Travelled in this train till VSKP. The speed of the train at night, especially from BAM onwards is furious and sleeping on the berth feels like you might be thrown away from the berth at any moment. Could be due to my berth position just above the train bogie.

Myself also had a very similar experience while travelling by the KING of SER. Its not the fault of your berth as you are talking about but I personally feel that trains like Falaknuma & Coromandel do a bit overspeeding during night time.

This train has one FC coach. I travelled on this from VSKP to Araku. It was Sunday. I noticed that a 4 berth cabin is shared by 6 passengers. On enquiry from TTE, they mentioned that day time journey will be shared whereas during night, there will be 1 person allotted per berth. Then I realized that in FC seat booking, we don't get any seat numbers unlike other classes. As most of the travelers in this train availing FC coach are from VSKP to Araku, therefore, the arrangement is such that more person will get allotted per FC berth/cabin in this route.
Another pain point noted is that the view from FC cabin on this train is not good as these
cabins are located on the left side of the train while travelling towards Araku. As a result, the windows on the alley as well as the doors which are on the right side of the train are completely occupied. Now people travelling in FC and squatting on the alley window or standing on the doors to get the glimpse or take snaps of the valley gives a feeling as if you are travelling in general second class coach and not in FC.

Toilets in AC coaches are mostly clean. Cleaning done at Bilaspur where the train reaches almost 10-15 mins before its scheduled time and this gives ample time for the cleaning & maintenance staff to keep the coach clean. Similar task are performed at other important stations en-route and overall one can experience a hygienic environment as this is what we expect from a long-distance train.

To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...
