22888/Yesvantpur - Howrah HumSafar Express Travelled on this train on 6th april'17 with new ser rakes but very sad to say that even ser rakes does not have facility of tea/coffee vending machine and water purifier which Humsafar Express rakes normally have. The TV was also not working with public announcement system.
The veg food is 110 INR and Non Veg is 130 INR. This train does not have cleaning persons on board, this train is cleaned only at vijaywada and Khurda Road stations.
There was also no dustbin in each coupe. The
seats were not colored and is normal LHB coach like seat. In Each coach toilet there was no liquid soap available in the liquid soap dispensor till Howrah. Smoke alarms and CCTV Cameras were present.
Automatic perfume spray dispenser in each coach was available and worked for the 1st day but after that perfume got finished and there was no automatic spray coming out.
Khadi Bed rolls was not provided.

Janta ke sath dhokha Hai HumSafar..... RM ne ullu banaya hai... 15% high fares and nothing significant improvement..... Dynamic fare must be removed from humsafar if railway cannot provide new facility.

Why this time there was no special durga puja special trains introduced between Bangalore/Yestwantpur/Cantonment/ KR Puram to Howrah as tickets are already booked in Duronto, AC Express and YPR-Hwh exp 4 months back and there is still demand for people like me to go. It could have been profitable for Railways also if they could have introduced a AC train between Bangalore/Yestwantpur/Cantonment/ KR Puram to Howrah

Went at 7:30am on 20th june'15 to book the tickets from Yesvantpur to Howrah on this 12246/Yesvantpur-Howrah Duronto Express for 18th Oct'15 journey (starting day of adv booking). In front of myself there were around 16 people, the door of the counter opened at 7:40am and the counter finally opened at 8am exactly. When my turn came at 8:05am I was surprised to see that 2nd AC, 3rd AC and Sleeper class already went to REGRET (no bookings allowed) and 1st AC went to WL 24. So, how this was possible that within 5 mins bookings went to REGRET.

This train has a huge demand. Passengers book tickets from anywhere in India through any PRS counter and irctc website. So, this is not impossible.

Sir, it is normal scenario in puja days in almost all trains, within 30 seconds it gets a huge WL, the reason almost 80 percent of people from west travel this day and lots of families are travelling so hence most of tickets consists of 6 passengers, so it's normal. If you didn't get a confirmed ticket then try in 22818 MYS-HWH exp, due to odd timings departure there is less demand.

After 30 mins I got another idea, immediately I took 1 more blank reservation slip, then I booked my ticket of 20th June'15 only from Bangalore to Chennai through Mysore Chennai Shatabdi Express which reaches Chennai at around 9:25pm and then I also got 2nd AC Ticket in Chennai Howrah Mail which leaves around 11:40pm.

12245/Howrah-Yesvantpur Duronto Express and 12246 Yeshvantpur-Howrah Duronto Express the rakes needs to be changed as both are looking dirty outside. They needs to be changed to pure new LHB Coaches. Pl anybody let me know the email id of South Eastern Railway so that I can write a mail to change the rakes and make it into pure LHB. This train also needs to be changed from 5 days a week to daily as I am sure there will be huge rush on all days.

If you are talking about Island express, it do stops Kottayam for 5 min, it runs via KTYM only all the 7 days of the week. And sorry to say this, Island express is super crawler in Kerala. It stops at majarity of stations in Kerala, even in stops where only passengers stops. So all the best, enjoy the beauty of kerala in slow motion..

Thanks for the reply actually I was confused as in arrival and departure it shows sundays N/A.
This train runs with WAP4 but why then it is slow. But I got a review that this train is well maintenaned and 2nd AC and sleeper coaches are new, that is why I opt for this train.

Yup it is well maintained train. The reason for train been slow is, it has stops in almost all stations, hence WAP4 is helpless.... To be honest, it runs like passenger train stopping almost all stations... Still people opt this train because there is no other way to reach banglore early morning and the maintainance of train
