This Journey Turned Out To Be A Nightmare. The Worst Train Journey In Last 5 Years. It Maintained Its Schedule Till ASN. From There It Started Getting Delayed. Reached PNBE & MGS 1 Hr Behind Schedule. As We Woke Up In The Morning, We Learned That The Train Is Running 4 Hours Late. And Since Then It Never Behaved Like A "Super Fast". Reached NDLS At 12 Noon. Pantry Staffs Are Worst Of All. Through Out The Journey, They Only Offered TEA & No Coffee. Even There Wasnt Biscuits With Tea Even Though They Charged INR 10/- . Even On Board House Keeping Staffs Were Not As Efficient As In Gyaneshwari Or Gitanjali

Don't worry I am with you. I have faced same problem with 12304 a little year ago. I would like to mention you that 12381/12382 Poorva Express via Gaya is more Punctual than 12303/12304 Poorva Express via Patna.

I Traveled By This Train [ Started From CST On Saturday And Reached Calcutta This Morning]. I Must Say It's A Terrific Train. People Talk About Duronto, Gitanjali, Gyaneshwari...But This Train Doesnt Lack Far Behind Than The Other 3. During Its Run It Maintained A Terrific Run.... It Reached Nagpur 20 Mins Before Schedule, Bilaspur 10 Mins Before Schedule & Howrah 10 Mins Before Shedule. Through Out The Journey, On Board House-Keeping Team Ensured Absolute Cleanliness, Fragrance & Hygiene. Only Negative Aspect Was The On Board Catering Team. I Dont Know Whether They Were From IRCTC Or MEALS ON WHEELS [ They Were Men In Green]... They Are Cheaters & Liars...... On Every Train [ I Witnessed It In Gyaneshwari, Gitanjali & Falaknuma] On Board Catering Staffs Offer Biscuit With Coffee.....

Why didnt complaint about this to the catering manager in PC. He is bound to help you, and if he doesn't, then simply ask him for bill for whatever you have taken.
But if he doesn't agrees to make a bill, then call 1800-111-321. Complain on this number with the train number and everything. I am 100% sure the pantry manager will come running to you with "sorry" on his face.

12869/12870 Mumbai - Howrah Weekly Express's pantry guys are very much decent & offer good food at reasonable rates.
My suggestion try once...

A Super Crap Train. Traveled By His On Last Saturday. It Reached Vapi 15 Mins Late. I Had A Ticket Of 1st Class. Hence, I Was I A Perception Of A Comfortable Journey. But I Was Shocked After Boarding . What I Saw ?

The Term "Gujarat Model" Justifies "Utopean Dream".... People Talk About Something Which Doesnt Exist In Real World, Like Some People Used To Portray Dubai, Singapore, US,China As "NAMO KA GUJARAT" . The So Called First Class Coaches Of This Super Crap Train Falls In This Category

I was the regular FC MST traveller of Gujarat Express from last 4 yrs...it coaches are maintained well...may b aapke tum b itna maintenance ni huva hoga..but yes...there would be soo may daily FC MST travellers...who will occupy seats....but most probably all reservations is done in FC-1 & FC-2 is left for Pass holders.
And you can't say a typical "Gujarat Model"...its an indirect hashing of Gujarat State.

actually a new idea...........can be good for those who cant get instant reservation in highly congested saraighat,kamrup.Can also act as a effectivre IC between point to point like MLDT-HWH,MLDT-NJP/NCB,NJP-NCB/NBQ,NBQ-GHY.So a green flag.

This along with Ahmedabad HWH are optimum Mail Tains.This much of stoppage is required for ease of RMS work.But the striking feature is both these Mail Trains maintains excellent punctuality & often arrives before times enroute Unlike other Mail trains like Kalka,Jodhpur& Mumbai Mail which runs 6-7 hrs behind their schedule
