I don't think there would be any place where you can get reviews. You'll have to manually find the passengers. :D

train was alloted a WAP 1 class of locomotive on its first run from Sealdah but from Amritsar this train got a VCD Medha Vigilance Control Device Fitted loco which is Installed on locomotive, VCD gives cyclic warning to the driver. Based on drivers reaction to this warning (in terms of any of the pre-defined sets of actions to be done by the driver), the system automatically resets the alerting cycle. In case, the driver fails to acknowledge the initial alert signals, a set of additional alert indications are given. Even failing to respond to these additional alert signals also will result in automatic application of penalty brakes.
The Rake consists of some ER coaches some NFR coaches and CR coaches.

Wow... AC coaches are sparkling... credit goes to RSA with Ananya Express which gets great patronage for passengers from Kolkata who are interested in Rajasthan Tourism (Jaipur, Udaipur, etc.). Such passengers go for 3rd AC booking a lot so ER increases these coaches in Rajasthan bound trains... this may be a reason why Durgiana & Akal Takht Expresses have got 3rd AC coaches from 2 to 4 in the past few years :)
.
PS: The Durgiana Express has RSA with Jaynagar Exp & Agra Cantt SF Weekly Exp so LHB doesn't seem

to be an immediate possibility since 13135/36 and 12319/20 aren't Rajasthan bound trains :-p :'-(

A 1st AC travel in LHB Rake in this train wouldn't be such a mind blowing experience since this train lacks a Pantry and hardly reaches Punjab on time due to its longer Main Line Route with Danapur Division mismanaging trains en route.

PS: Its better to take home cooked food even in 1st AC LHB coach of this train as its tough to depend on online meal joints that will only be available on big stations where this train may hardly reach on time... just my personal opinion (tea in the
