I have travelled in this train recently and would like to share the experience.
Train name :- Gitanjali Express. suffix super fast is used in Kolkata and Mumbai and another suffix triple fast is used in NGP-IGP section.
Journey from-to :- Kharagpur to Kalyan.
Loco:- WAP-4#22880 of South Eastern Railways' shed Santragachi from Howrah to Igatpuri and WCAM-3 of Central Railways' Kalyan shed for rest of the part.
Speed:- Superb! Dot ontime at every halt right from Kharagpur to Kalyan. It surely might be touching 120 kmph in NGP-BSL section as other trains like Vidarbha Express do. This train is best as per the average speed too.
...

Cleanliness:- It was unexpected! I had heard about all the dirtiness found in this train and also experienced it few years back!. It happened so that this was the last train of my trip, the second last being BBS Rajdhani express (NDLS to KGP), so, there were chances of me missing my gitanjali express if rajdhani got late as it was a back to back journey, hence, I booked Kharagpur to Tata in sleeper and shifted my boarding point of my main 3AC ticket from Kharagpur to Tata.
Sleeper coach that I was in too neat and clean and so was my 3AC coach. Just one thing that was annoying were the big size cockroaches that were visible initially only. Toilets were too clean. Cleaning staff was there who did cleaning twice or thrice a day. Room freshner were sprayed. There was display board fitted near the inner door, that displayed the availabilty status of the two adjacent toilets :p
Food:- Food was good but it happens to be too oily as a result of which I got sick after reaching home. You get to eat the same snacks sold in almost every train like cutlet, samosa, omlette. In Food, that day, there were only rice items available, i.e veg biryani (i ate), egg biryani, etc.

Gitanjali deserves to have LHB coaches. Present coaches are pathetic in condition. It was the first train in India to have reservations. Such a premium train is neglected a lot.
