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 ??
given the extreme distance, LHB can be considered.One rake will suffice.NFR can promote it as one of its flagship trains.Trains to south covering massive distance definitely needs good rakes if not LHB.the condition of YPR/SBC-DBRG is also in a dilapated condition.

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 )
