Is there any other train like this ?? having ECoR as base while it never touches ECoR !! :P
For Example - 18615/18616 and 18645/18646 both belong to SER so problem never arises but in this case its peculiar situation !!

It has RSA with Howrah-Puri Express (which is EcoR) so in the name board you can see it mentioned as Puri-Howrah-Mumbai. I think the same is mentioned for Howrah-ranchi and Howrah-Hyderabad......Hatia-Howrah-Hyderabad

Oh ok....i thought that Howrah-Puri belonged to ECoR...... I thought that some trains which originated from Puri were now part of EcoR. I was not aware tht it is with SER

Name board is Mumbai-Howrah-Puri since it shares its rake with Jagannath Exp which runs between Howrah-Puri. There shouldn't be any confusion regarding this since train board clears the confusion. However,you can cancel your ticket and file TDR to claim refund if you cancel your ticket within 3 hours of actual departure of train. You will get 50% of the orignal amount back as refund.

Running with one less 2A coach today. Today's A1 coach is actually a 3A coach with 64 berths, all of which have been allotted. Those originally booked in 2A but allotted berths in A1 have been promised a refund of the difference in fares at their respective destination stations.

Your guess is as good as mine. The TTE said that was how the rake of 12860 arrived from HWH the previous day(which, in turn would be because of 18410 arriving from PURI on the morning of this 12860's departure from HWH), hence CR was left with no choice. It could be due to the reasons mentioned by SRG.

This 12859 was my Favorite Train since childhood. We were lucky to get tickets in this train even in those days. Used To be so clean, Organised and Fastest Connection. Time table was always Maintained.
But My last travel in 12859 was a Disgusting. Since East Coast Railway Took Over This Train.
1. I was standing in Kalyan Railway station and due to some reason i missed the Loco Part of train and saw mid Train i could not see any name plate Saying MUMBAI-HOWRAH , it was bloody MUMBAI-PURI and all written in ORYIA language. It was instinct which got me into train when i saw bengali Looking womens dashing in 2AC coach.
2. Coaching has been done
...
Read more...
by ECR is worst they must be using all the condemn Coaches of ECR in this Train. No cleanness seats were not maintained Torned seats in 2AC . AND forget about Sleeper Class That WAS more pathetic.
3. You could just look at the train from outside and can tell how your ride will be on these type of coach Maintenance By ECR.
Looks Like SCR has Given up on 12859 and This train will Go down as one of the beautiful song of Indian Railways. That was my last ride with 12859 now preferring Jhaneshwari SF which is better maintained and inspite of slower Time Table At least have a Comfort and Clean Ride.
Am I the ONLY one Complaining About this One .....

There are many such trains which were doing excellent before having a RSA.... 8 years ago when I travelled in Gitanjali....it was one of the most comfortable journey......
Now most of the pax prefer either Jnaneshwari or HWH Drnt while Gitanjali has slipped down in preference....

RSA has completely destroyed the legacy of Gitanjali Exp. There is absolutely zero coach maintenance by ECOR. If IR is interested in bringing back the old gitanjali than RSA has to be stopped.
