this one should be given LHB Rake & made SF.... easily 5 to 6 hrs can be saved both sides & can run with 1 rake only...
also if rerouted via RPH HWH CTC will be better... only 45 kms more bt HWH will get a CAPE & Far South connection......
anyone agreeing ??
Whats the problem with existing rake??It was speeded up by around 4 hrs 30 mins last year...
HWH already has a CAPE connection as HWH-CAPE Express in a much shorter route- and TVC is also connected via CBE route via Shalimar and Gurudev Express
Dont think so !!! Via HWH will not benifit any HWH based Pax and LHB is no near possibility !! Via DGR ASN its better with so less pressure.
the coaches are dirty, not well maintained.. AC coaches are even poorer condition..
when was it speeded up ??
there was only change in timings & slot & 15906 was despeeded by 1 hr
i agree HWH has both DBRG & TVC connection..
bt niether CAPE not ERS connection is enough.. all have long WLs... AC tkts are difficult getting cnf..
i think long route trains should also be given LHB so that the on board confort factor for end to end pax is not disturbed.. if u ask ppl travelling in this end to end in SL/GS they will not say they really loved & enjoyed the journey ..
Maintenance matters not the rake...Even if LHB rake given and is not maintained well shall become dirty.
Check the time line earlier it used to take around 85 hrs now its around 81 hrs days of run has been changed.
bt still 4-5 hrs speed up possible... upgradation to SF ..
where can i see the old TT ?
See the timeline history.
was both side speeded up ?? i didnt see 15906 old TT...

I will be travelling to Bhubaneswar, Puri, Deogarh and Varanasi after a few months.
Will this be a convenient train from Coimbatore to Bhubaneswar?
When you mention convenient, What do you mean? Timings, rush or food? Sleeper is normally packed with general ticket holders..
Thanks for your reply. Timings seems to be very convenient. I wanted to know about food and rush. From your reply I feel that it will be better to book in 3AC or select different train.
You can refer to the Blogs for this train where travelers would have written about food. It's better to book in AC rather than Sleeper.

Cant I book a reserved ticket from VSKP to SLO/RJY in this train. It showing Not Available for VSKP - SLO/RJY for 19th March whereas its showing WL for VSKP to BZA.
this is due to distance restriction
Better avoid this train (Cleanliness is worst )
