As per me,its the best train to travel from secunderabad to odisha/kolkata.
Personally many times travelled in this train. From secunderabad to vijayawada,its good speed,punctual and no unauthorized entry. After BZA,some local travellers bound to inbetween stations of BZA-VSKP board the train but here SCR TTE are very strict to this and they don't allow to board them in sleeper classes. So till morning i.e berhampur,its all neat,clean and happy journey. But after that,the journey till BBS sucks. Train is bit slow and unauthorized pax board it to go BBS/CTC. TTE also don't even ask anything. After BBS/CTC,again this train shows its full aggresion. If falaknuma exp gets late by 20-25 min at BHC,then hold your breath for a deadly aggresive overtake

Food Tip For 12773 SHM SC AC:
Before Boarding from SHM or SRC , get some snacks with you from Station or outside station. It will help a lot while journey. For Dinner , Get it from Cuttack or Bhubaneswar. Both these stations have Brilliant food options on stations and vendors sell food when this reaches on Platform. But Do take care that train halts for hardly 4-5 minutes (bcoz it always arrives delayed by 20-30 minutes) , so stay on your feet , otherwise you may miss your train. ;)
Next day

Between VSKP-RJY , caterers do sell breakfast and Tea, but they are very less in amount. Get good breakfast from Rajahmundry Station.
Also to keep your tummy full , eat the snacks that you brought before boarding the train. (Now you will understand the reason why i asked you to purchase enough snacks chips/biscuits before boarding the train).
Now the BIGGEST TIP is Purchase your Lunch from Vijayawada Jn. Even if you don't feeling Hungry , still Purchase the food from Vijayawada station itself. Because between BZA and SC , there is absolutely no catering present onboard. Warangal halt also is just 2 min, so you can't get anything to eat. So purchase food from BZA station for pleasant journey between BZA-SC.
Food Tip for 12774 SC SHM AC:
Before Boarding , Buy some food for breakfast from Secunderabad itself. Purchase Lunch from Vijayawada station. Rajahmundry also has food option , but its bit costly and train also halts for just 2 minutes here. So purchase your Lunch from BZA itself. Now For night Dinner , Parcel from VSKP itself. Seriously telling , after VSKP , VZM & CHE do not have Good food options. And BBS - CTC station comes midnight , so pack food from VSKP and eat the same at night. Next day Great Breakfast (Hot Cheap tasty Poori-Bhaji) is present on Pf of Kharagpur. Train always halts for good 10 minutes , so Don't forget to eat the same.
Water Bottles and Cold drinks are sold time to time but they are bit costly. Purchase the same at cheaper cost when train halts any big station like BZA , VSKP , KUR , BBS or CTC.

Its for 12773:
At CTC and BBS , you can get food...Or else book travelkhana or any other online food portal or you can even book from IRCTC. These all provide food at CTC and BBS.
But as the train just halt for 5 minute at these both , sellers don't get enough time to sell food. And also they charge 10-15 Rs extra as compared to same food from Platform.

1st day's Dinner is bit of a problem , thats why take something tiny-bit from KGP to eat so that won't get much hungry.
I always boarded from BLS, so never felt the problem of 1st night dinner as i get packed from home or outside hotel before boarding train. But i am sharing on basis of what i saw other Kolkata co-passengers were doing.
Andfor 12774 , same problem will arise-dinner , but if you packed yourself with food from VSKP , then its all a great journey.
SCR should include this train in E-Catering list.

If you boarding from SRC/SHM , then board the train with night's dinner from home (Like Paranthe-Pickle or Curd-Rice which doesn't perish quickly enough).
And get some snacks from CTC,BBS or KUR for the spare appetite.
Once the night is wasted , then the next day you can get Hot breakfast from VSKP and RJY. And Good Lunch from BZA.

I have travelled on this train in Feb 2015, in SL class. Right from LTT, the water supply in SL coaches was erratic, 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...
more...
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

Best train to travel between bilaspur (bsp) to tata and ckp. Ac coaches are better than sleeper.
