Booking Preference Tip.
If you have to travel from Delhi to Coastal Odisha , then your train availability searching priority should as: (For SL class)
1. Purushottam express (No doubt about this train;Book this as your 1st preference)
2. BBS Duronto express (only for Bhubaneswar people ; Punctuality is poor; But very safe and secure as no unreserved or daily travellers are allowed to
...
more...
board)
3. Odisha Sampark Kranti express (Puctuality is poor but its better bcoz NO unreserved or WL crowd boards this train due to Least halts in UP)
4. Nandan Kanan express (Better than neelanchal bcoz takes shorter route; punctuality is poor but seat availibility is better than Neelanchal)
5. Neelanchal Express (You will hardly get CNF seat in this train; Very demanded train as its the only train connecting Central UP with Odisha & puri)
6. Hirakund Express (Takes the shortest route; Good punctuality; but problem is its speed and total time taken; Huge number of halts and unreserved & Daily travellers board this in SL class)
7 ANVT BBS weekly express (Train best suited for Western Odisha; takes 2nd longest route and punctuality is poor ;Not much beneficial for coastal odisha)
8. Kalinga Utkal express (This should be the least preferred for travelling to coastal odisha; Very slow and heavy crowded throughout the route with Unreserved , WL and Daily travellers;Maintenance is below average;Takes the Longest route so that whole northern coastline of odisha is covered but still takes hell lot of time;Don't take SL class in this train unless have NO other option)
Now For AC classes,
Only opt Rajdhani or Purushottam. Getting seat in BBS rajdhani is easier and journey would be punctual.

Punctuality very good ??? Kya bol dia aapne sir...Its Excellent. Balasore pe Utkal aur Purushottam do train aati hain at midnight from Delhi, but Puru majority 1-1.30hr delay rehti hai but Utkal humesha ontime.
But kharabi yeh hai ki Koi leta hi nahi hai from Delhi to Coastal odisha. Itna circular journey kaun kare. ;)
Western odisha jyada prefer karte hain Utkal.

Thats right...ECoR ne more faster ANVT BBS SF de di for western odisha, but woh kabhi bhi on time nahi chalti. Always 4-5hrs delay.
But this old horse Utkal always stay on time whatever be the season. Best preferred by Wetern odisha only.

Yes...the pantry standard is average below standard.....Instead good pantry is present in Odisha sampark kranti which serves good quality food as per my last journey experience.
But then we have to compromise on Punctuality factor if we check on pantry quality.

delhi to Odisha travelling people don't like Utkal exp but the people of MP , specially from jabalpur side (Boarding from Katni) and going to Balasore-Bhadrak, people still prefer Kalinga Utkal due to its punctual and direct route.
End to End people don't prefer but Intermediate travellers prefer it very much due to its good seat availability.

The reason is absolute stoppage of starting any new train for odisha.
The last train that was started for odisha to north india was ANVT BBS Weekly SF which was for Western Odisha on the same departure slot as of Odisha Sampark kranti.
After that till now there is NO trains started. All the RM have completely ignored to connect Puri , a one of the Biggest tourist destination with Jammu-Katra or Haridwar or Amritsar North Indian cities.

Problem with Hirakund is Huge Number of Halts and very slow TT with Heavy inflow of MST/UR travellers between Delhi-Bina.
Whereas in nandan Kanan , the rush is bit less as compared to Hirakund....If ECoR somehow Speed up Hirakund express (which is easily possible) , then i would say it can climb up to atleast Rank 2.

Problem is that a train with as much halts as Hirakud will need little more slack...
I wont deny that its not feasible...
Ofcourse its feasible, at the same time too much halts should be removed.
P.S: removing stops aint that easy :P :P

Duronto ko kabhi kabhi as an offlink mil jati hai WAP-7 but very rarely..Purushottam should get it upto Puri instead upto KGP..

#BookingTip
People who wish to take this train from Balasore/Kharagpur to Delhi (Never opt this train,still if having NO other option) , and getting Regret status , then book Bhadrak to New Delhi and Change your Boarding Point to Balasore/Kharagpur (Whichever is your boarding station).
Balasore is Charting station for this train and BLS & KGP are under RLWL , whereas BHC is under GNWL , thus having more chance to get confirm seats.

You can not.
You have booked a Ticket From KGP to NDLS, then you cannot change its boarding from a previous station.
Only option is Cancel this ticket and Re-book for Bhadrak to New Delhi by paying extra money and change the boarding station to Kharagpur.

There are total 4 Pf.
Pf 1: Its the Pf which is at the entry building and the main exit gate from here only. Intercity trains Baghajatin passenger (both up-down), Dhauli express (Puri bound) and BGY BBS express (BBS bound) comes on this Pf. This also acts as a loop line for freight or other train, which are to be overtaken by some other train.
Pf 2: Its NOT an island type Pf. All the main administrative and commercial offices like GRP-RPF station, Postoffice , Parcel booking , Waiting halls etc are present
...
more...
here only. On this Pf , the trains coming from HWH/KGP side and going towards CTC side comes. This is on Main Line (Pf 1 act as loop line for overtakes).
Pf 3: Its an island type Pf. This is also on main line itself and the trains coming from CTC side and going towards KGP/HWH side comes on this Pf.
Pf 4: This Pf is used as a loop line for the overtakes. If a freight or express train is to be overtaken, then its towed on Pf 4 and the other train overtakes from Pf 3. But sometimes there comes exception. All the passenger train going towards KGP are brought on Pf 3 only (Not on any pother Pf). So if an express train is to overtake a passenger train, then it has to overtake from Pf 4.
Now here at BLS station, only 2-3 trains pass by without halting, like MAS HAZ Sangrami and PURI-SDEAH duranto, or else all other every train halts here.

BBS rajdhani halts here because after Cuttack, its the biggest city before West Bengal and a great money earner for ECoR.
Rajdhani is halting here from its 1st run itself.
Sangrami is a SR train , so SER can't interfere for halts.
But still its a huge secret why only Sangrami and HWH SSPN doesn't halt here, whereas rest every non-duranto train halts here.

Pf constraints are present. Up and Down Platforms have No Loop line. Direct Mainline is there for Pf 2 and 3.
Thats why they dont give halt for some Special trains like SRC ERS special.
But majorly all the regular express train halt here.
Sangrami , SSPN SF and KYQ PURI are exception.

I think the official link is WAP-4 from Puri to KGP n vice versa coz in this site the same loco link is mentioned for 12801 though for 12802 it shows WAP-7 GZB end to end. i dnt knw the reason bt for last 3-4 weeks i.e since Ganesh chaturthi BBS Raj is mostly(for 5 days a week) seen with WAP-4 of diff sheds like SRC, BRC,MGS, CNB at Balasore. One of the members of IRI said tht it was due to the shortage of wap7 loco pilots as they are undergoing training and most of the imp trains(with loco link WAP7 GZB) are given WAP-4 as offlink. this Thursday 22824 was seen with HWH WAP-7. All these things are quite confusing

Semane tah debe... kahinki naa they are jealous of ECor....they can't tolerate an ECoR train getting WAP-7 regularly... KGP officials r "paidaaishi kuttas (Dogs by birth)" u know...I suspect that even if NR gives WAP-7 regularly to BBS raj, the SER Rly kuttas of KGP give WAP4 sometimes to this Rajdhani exp upto BBS rather than giving WAP7 .

SER KGP authorities are dogs as they are kaminaas and ECoR authorities are donkeys and some are snails as they are much lazy.. the two railway zones have combinedly ruined the state of railway in Odisha... Balasore is an imp city of Odisha but see its railway stn.... seems to b even smaller than BHC and JJKR... SER has ruined BLS but I hope ECoR (even though it's lazy) can improve this station

SER authorities are no different in West Bengal nor Jharkhand regions, they're same everywhere, they're just lazy as sloths & just they have their focus upon squeezing gullible passengers off their money by every possible ways!

Food is completely nil available here. Only for long journey trains crossing at "dinner time" i.e between 7 pm to 9 pm , local vendors come from outside and sell hot poori-bhaji and samosas. Taste wise they are good and acceptable.
A Omfed milk/milk products/juice/water bottle stall is present on Pf 3/4 and at Pf 1. Other than these, nothing else is present.
But once you come outside of station premises, then you will find numerous amount of restaurants present. A Mutton heaven is present hardly 100-200 m away on main station

road. Its name is "Mutton Darbar". A one of a kind restaurant dedicated solely for Mutton only. You will get only Mutton dishes here, but really taste wise very out of the league. Its open till night 10 pm. So if having lots of time to kill , then fill up you tummy here with mutton.

There are total 4 Pf.
All these Platforms are connected through 2 FOB.
The FOB towards CTC side (south side) connects all the 4 platforms and also directly open up outside the station near parking lot. Also at the end of this FOB there is a State Bank of India ATM.
The FOB towards KGP (north side) end of station is brand new.

It got completed in November 2015 and it connects all the Platforms but doesn't go outside. For getting outside the station, you have to take the main exit of Pf 1.
On Pf 1 , near exit, the reservation charts are pasted and a book stall is present.
On Pf 2 and 3 , there are milk & juice counters. Or else, except it, there are small hawkers who sell samosas, jhaal-muri, bhoobni etc like things when a train arrives.

No pre-paid taxi/auto stand is present. Instead ample amount of auto and cycle-rikshaw are there through out the day,just outside main building. Try to negotiate,because they will demand more money. But if they don't agree to your terms,then walk a few 100-200m outside on the main road,you will reach station chhak,from where you can get more cheaper cycle-rikshaw.
But during night time,i will suggest you not to search for anything as its a silent sleeping small town. Instead wait till 5 a.m,then you will get many options to go in town.
