Time for a report now.
Part I:-
I booked my return ticket from Kol to B'lore in January for 5th March,2016. At that time I got W/L 9. Slowly and steadily as time progressed, the W/L went to RAC and finally 2 days before the journey got CNF. Got Seat 35 (UB) in coach B3. So cut short to the trip, reached HWH at 8pm on 5th March(saturday), 12863 was already stationed at PF22. On the adjacent PF21, HWH-CSTM Mail (NGP) was ready for it's departure.
came into the PF22, UR coach was jampacked and people were already getting settled in the reserved coaches. CC is same as what mentioned in this site. (Only change noticed was, PC came after S13 and then S14 and the AC coaches at the end). Loco Link, WAP4 Not sure of the shed as it was way ahead from where my coach was. Kept my luggage below the seat, had a formal hi-hello with the co-passengers mostly travelling to KPD and TPTY as usual. At 8.45 pm, the LP gave a long shrill honk and the journey started, steadily crawling out of HWH and Tikiapara Shed. Kept on doing a very decent pace passing through Subarban stations to SRC where we slowed down somewhat, but soon picked up the lost pace as the P4 would generally do and kept on thrusting forward. Since it was dark outside, decided not to venture at the door, checked the wash-rooms, commendably clean (very good), Coach B2 had Bio Toilets, all 4 but couldn't make out any significant difference. Came back in my coupe, an elderly couple was preparing for their sleep ( travelling to KPD) , 2 middle and one upper berth was to be filled up in Mecheda and KGP respectively. So in the meantime I had my dinner when we crossed Mecheda clocked at 9.35pm. I had a tiring Saturday afternoon, so decided to sleep as we reached KGP right at 10.20pm. by the way, Charging points were present in each coupe and in SideLowers also working fully. Bedsheets were clean and neat. Went to sleep in the hope of some raw action next day morning by P4...

Part II:-
Next day morning show:-
Woke up by the call of Pantry Staff serving breakfast (opted for Bread/Omlette: Rs 30). It was 9.00 am so still we were on our way to VZM. Kept on snoozing till 9.30am when we reached VZM. I guess we were running a bit late by then. Most of the passengers were done with their morning chorus and breakfast and ventured out to be in the morning sun since it was pretty cold inside. Exactly halting for 10 mins, we got the starter and P4 made it
clear by a banging honk. Came inside, got freshened up, completed the breakfast and was enjoying the run to VSKP on a Side Lowerberth. We hustled past through the stations that came in our way and made it to VSKP at 10.50 am (running late). Approaching VSKP Loco yard, saw a LGD P4 was fired up. Guessed it would be the Loco for us from VSKP to YPR all the way. Pulled into PF1. Halted for around 15-20 mins. The same LGD P4 was attached. So we are already halfway done.
Things to note:
1: Washrooms were pretty cleaned even before maintenance started at VSKP
2: Cleaning in the AC coaches were done at regular intervals apart from spraying the Insecticides and Freshener

Hi All,
Sorry for the delay in Trip report. Without much fuss, I will start off.
Report Part - I
I have traveled to Kolkata on 9th Jan, in 02509(BNC-KYQ PREM). It was a good journey throughout as I have made a detailed trip report.
it was the time to return to workplace. So my Doj was 17th Jan, in 12863.

I reached HWH at nearly 8pm. The train was already pulled into PF22 by a HWH WDM. I was berthed at B4,32 (SU). I realized the CC has increased as compared to the last time I travelled in it. Kept my luggage under the berth, checked around passengers travelling in my coupe. a family of 4 travelling to KPD for medical reasons, 2 berths were alloted from KGP to YPR, I had the Side Upper, and the Side lower was in RAC having a couple.
The coach was nice, neat and clean, but curtains were missing. Charging points were working in alternate coupes. I got down and waited with my Dad and a friend. We were having conversation and I had an eye on the clock. It was past 8.40pm, but still no signs of proceed signal. At 8.50pm, the signal went yellow and the Loco pushed out. I didn't hear any honk, may be because my coach was at the fag end and HWH being a busy terminal, you may lost it in the hustling and bustling. I bade goodbye to my dad and friend, and footplated, till we went out of the PF and started moving further left of the Coach Yard. I came inside, with a heavy heart as this was a very short trip of 7 days after almost 1year.
Anyways, decided to check the washrooms, they were clean, liquid soaps were placed beside the washbasins, all the taps working fine. So initial check was done. Came back to seat. Since my Side lower was RAC, so no chance of sitting there. I sat on the lower berth on the other side. TTE came in, checked the tickets, then I realised that the couple in SLower, was actually brother-sister :)
They kept on chatting with the TTE to get a confirm seat, the TTE informed that for that night a person can go and sleep at berth no. 51 or 53, exactly I dont remember the seat. Soon after the train left MCA, i climbed up and started to have my dinner I bought from home. It was lovely, delicious, "Maa k haath ka khaana". Meanwhile, yes, the train was rollicking ahead with good speed. The Attendant came and took the order for breakfast the next morning. By the time we reached KGP, I had finished my dinner and then the final 2 passengers arrived in the adjoining coupe. A family of 2. We were doing almost on time running. May be a 2-3 mins late. I kept standing on the door and we sped past Hijili but since it was pitch dark and also cold outside. i returned to my berth. Prepared my bed. The bedsheets provided were clean, stainless. I finally retired to my bed around 11.15pm.
Next morning woke up, by the sound of the pantry guy serving breakfast and tea. I peeped at my watch , it showed 9.00am. I was like Ok, I have slept a lot. Freshened up and we reached VZM exactly on time. The OBHS were working continuously to keep the coach clean from rodents and dirt. I thought of going ahead and check the loco, but dropped the idea as it was too far. So when the LP gave a long honk, I boarded back, and came to my seat and finished my breakfast (4 breadslices, butter chiplets: 2 nos, Omlette, Veg Cutlet, Ketchup sachet) and a cup of tea. breakfast around Rs. 35 and tea as usual Rs.10. Then i went to door and kept standing to watch the action from P4. We were storming ahead brushing past all the stations enroute and at 10.10am we reached VSKP outer. We were greeted by DHN-ALP Express moving out of VSKP. We crawled our way towards the PF. And Bang on 10.25am, we stopped. The PF wore a deserted look, i felt somehow. The SL coaches were full upto brim. At VSKP, I had good chance to walk around and stretch a bit. Since the CC gets reversed, I was eager to see the Loco which was to be coupled. It was a LGD P4 which was designated for the remaining journey. After a 25mins stop, we were given the proceed signal and this time the shrill honk was more that audible. loved that honk, and we lurched ahead out of VSKP. i kept standing at the door, not even bothered of going back to my seat. The RAC guy already asked me if he sleep on the side upper berth of mine. I told him to make himself comfortable. The P4, after leaving VSKP, did not blast but kept coasting through out. it was indeed the highlights of the journey from VSKP till the next morning, that we really didn't sped past, it was all about coasting. We stopped at Thadi where we crossed 12840 MAS HWH Mail. It was getting more dusty as we moved ahead towards SLO. By the time it was 12pm, when the Pantry guy came and asked for Veg or Non Veg meal. I placed an order for NonVeg meal and asked when he will be serving. He replied by another 30 mins, so I still had good 30mins to enjoy the journey from the door. Somehow time flew by and just before Pithapuram we crossed the counterpart 12864 YPR-Hwh Exp. We reached SLO at 1.05pm. By the time lunch was served. I enjoyed the lunch provided, (Chicken Curry, Rice, Veg Curry, Dal, pickle and papad). It was real nice stuff. This is another reason I like travelling in this train because of the food they serve, apart from the TT. It's tasty and fresh. I kept sitting in the Side Lower and took a nap for around 2 hrs or so. When I woke up, I found we were crawlingl. I came out, washed my face, opened the door, only to found that we reached BZA before time as it was then 4.30pm.
DEMU's passed by. At 4.45pm, we pulled in to PF1 of BZA. I got down, had a glass of juice, purchased a soft drink bottle and a pair of bananas. Cleaning was going on as usual. Water refilling were done wherein needed. Sharp at 5pm, the LP blared with long honk and we were ready for the onward journey.
To be contd.

A new train if possible should be introduced between SBC/YPR/BNC to SDAH/KOAA. Not only taking off loads from YPR Exp, Anga Exp, GHY-SBC, but also it will be a good revenue earning for IR too.
needs an aggressive TT, much like the 22503 Premium has but with a bit more stoppages. A good route will be via Hyd or SC instead of routing it to MAS, since MAS already graces Coro, Mail and other bypassing trains towards HWH.

Traveling in this train today. Just now started from PF 1A BNC. CC is pretty weird. Loco-slr-s8-s7-s6-s5-s4-b4-a1-b3-b2-b1-pc-s3-s2-s1 -slr.
Coaches are in pretty bad condition. BT some coaches are clean at least from inside
