you can trust this train's punctuality for arriving mumbai. Even if its late at nasik road,it reaches igatpuri on time,and so at kalyan,dadar and cstm, as it has good amount of slack in between NK and IGP.
Awesome aggresive speed throughout the journey. Fully enjoyed it.

Breakfast (Bread omelette) is Rs 50/- I guess. That's what I was charged in Samarsata and HWH-CSTM Mail in January.
