This is the sister train to 12101/12102 (see RSA).. An excellent train, and it drops you at HWH at a better time than 12101/12102. Food quality is good, (my personal opinion), but the early morning tea from station vendors at KGP is just awesome ! All in all, a good train!!

It is better than trains on this route, incl Duronto. Of course, food quality is based on personal opinion

Absolutely. I travel at least thrice a year to Kolkata from Mumbai on this train. I cannot remember anytime, when the food was bad. All along it was quite good and filling, with good service. You can even get extras, like extra rice. If you tell the waiters, they will remember it and serve it to you. of course you will have to pay for that, followed by a healthy tip to your server, at end of journey.

Re# 904495-2            Tags   Past Edits
I've seen Azad Hind Express used to arrive at Bhusaval & it used to be overtaken there by Jnaneshwari Deluxe, hence there after it follows till Howrah in between inverval of 20-15 mins...
In return direction journey Jnaneshwari Deluxe use to trail Azad Hind Express right from Malkapur - Bhusaval or sometimes even from Nagpur itself (in some rare cases Jnaneshwari Deluxe overtakes Pune bound Azad Hind Express at Akola - Bhusaval section)...
Thanks!

Well, the times I have travelled, I was lucky to have Azad Hind at my tail. On all occasions Azad Hind arrived late at Bhusawal, but only by minutes. In Chattisgarh (RPR - BSP), you will notice a third track. I have had instances when Jnaneshwari is stooped at any outer signal, Azad Hind will slowly crawl in on the third track. Many times it has happened that Gondwana Express is preceding Jnaneshwari, so it will be Gondwana, Jnaneshwari, and then Azad Hind, all back to back, in quick succession. While coming from HWH, either Jnaneshwari or Azad Hind is ahead, depending on which train started ahead from HWH. I have also noticed that Azad Hind was hauled by Bhusawal WAP4, and in one instance, by a Bhusawal WAM4

This is the only train, which has seats till the last moment!! It is due to the odd arrival times at HWH. Gitanjali Express and Mumbai - Howrah Mail are the most popular trains on Mumbai - Howrah route, due to the arrival timings at HWH. Duronto is catching up fast!!

Not exactly, you can see Sleeper class is highly patronized & AC class availability is due too large numbers of AC coaches (9 coaches), but still this train is not that popular like Gitanjali or Howrah Mail...

Re# 1009416-3            Tags   Past Edits
atleast in ac,i think empty seats are due to large no of ac coaches.also i prefer this due to its timing in hwh. 4am early morning in hwh is awsome time to reach.
i think it has very less useful stoppage after bsp.i mean pple travel to rou or ckp from bsp,and as far as i know there is huge crowd for kgp that like to board at bsp.
overall due to high no of ac/sl coaches and low demand of onroute stations due to odd timing,its easy to get reservation.

Yeah, you are right. These days even SL seats are not available on this train at some times. Maybe it is gaining popularity. It,s sister train, Samarsata, is going full too !! It has a very good ARR time at HWH.

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!

I have travelled on this train in Feb 2015, in SL class. Right from LTT, the water supply in SL coaches was erratic, particularly in my coach. I checked and found that there is a leak, so water is escaping. But there was water in other coaches. But by the next day, water had disappeared in all SL coaches. The toilets were stinking, basins were completely choked, so much so that I had a fight with cleaning staff at Rouirkela the next noon. They simply refused to clear up blockages and supply water, and we had to continue to HWH in this condition. After HWH, things gets worse. There is abolutely no food available in the train after HWH, so please stock up at HWH. I got dates and bread. The TT told me that there will be no food nor water till NJP the next day. I checked the...

bathrooms at MLDT early morning, all the bathrooms were choked, overflowing, and no water. Finally, I had to go to a bathroom in the AC coaches. Complaining to the TTs does not help, I did so at Rourkela station, after which I got into a fight with the cleaners at Rourkela

Rest all the things are OK..but absolutely no food after HWH? Are you sure? Very difficult to digest because train is travelling in SBG Loop & as per my knowledge SBG Loop has highest No. Of unauthorized vendors than any other section in IR you can't feel hungry & thirsty if your train is passing through BWN RPH NFK section
