This train reaches HWH too early at 3:35AM if this reaches at 4:00AM then it would be convenient for passengers. Secondly this train should be made a daily train.

To be very honest, nothing can be achieved even if this train reaches HWH at 0400AM. No buses, no public transport at HWH, till almost 0530AM, even later in winters! No hotels in Kolkata will take you in till about 0800 - 1000AM, depending upon check-in policy. I have faced it myself, even in Central Kolkata hotels. The only option is Pre-paid taxis, thankfully the booth outside "Notun Platform" is operational 24 X 7, albeit with long lines. The only difficulty, in my opinion, is if you are staying with somebody in Kolkata. Nobody will like to open the door for you at 0500AM +. This train reaches even earlier, I have myself reached HWH at 0300AM. Let"s keep this train at the right time. You can connect safely to every train leaving HWH at early morning, if you are on this train. I have seen many connecting...

passengers, on this train. But this is my own opinion, others may disagree, with very valid reasons!

This train can still do better in terms of speed by reaching MS much earlier. This can happen if the entire CSTM - MS route is completely doubled & electrified.

Most popular and the only superfast on Mumbai-Chennai Route,12163/64 is a pride for CR. Speed of the train is good,would get late by 40 mins till GTL(Rarely),but slack ensures on time arrival at Pune & Mumbai. The coaches are new(all coaches are of 21st Century) and very well maintained by CR. Even toilets are maintained well. Bedding's given in in 3AC & 2AC is fresh & clean. Pantry of this train is good. Especially the lunch is excellent. 2 Rotis,Panner Subzi,Dal,Rice,Pickle,Dahi,Sweet(Most of the times Gulab Jamun) is served. Food of this train is trustable.
Recommended to travel from Mumbai to Chennai unlike its counterparts.

I just don't know when the PUNE - GTL route will be completely Electrified??? As this is the only line in the CSTM - MAS route which needs to be electrified. Once this is electrified then the electrification of the CSTM - MAS route will be completed.

    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...
