Charging Points are available in all the AC Coaches and all SL from S1 - S13 on either side of every compartment.
A lot of IRCTC vendors right from boarding the train in Howrah or Mumbai are active all the time.
The train is cleaned thoroughly in the morning.

I Traveled By This Train [ Started From CST On Saturday And Reached Calcutta This Morning]. I Must Say It's A Terrific Train. People Talk About Duronto, Gitanjali, Gyaneshwari...But This Train Doesnt Lack Far Behind Than The Other 3. During Its Run It Maintained A Terrific Run.... It Reached Nagpur 20 Mins Before Schedule, Bilaspur 10 Mins Before Schedule & Howrah 10 Mins Before Shedule. Through Out The Journey, On Board House-Keeping Team Ensured Absolute Cleanliness, Fragrance & Hygiene. Only Negative Aspect Was The On Board Catering Team. I Dont Know Whether They Were From IRCTC Or MEALS ON WHEELS [ They Were Men In Green]... They Are Cheaters & Liars...... On Every Train [ I Witnessed It In Gyaneshwari, Gitanjali & Falaknuma] On Board Catering Staffs Offer Biscuit With Coffee..... Over Here They Didnt [ Even On Demand], Though They Charged The Same i.e INR 10/-... Also They Were Rude...
more...
Enough To Tell Me On The Next Morning "Agar Samosa Leke AC Me Ayenge To Bread-Omlette Koi Nahi Khayega"....That Means They Also Know How Crap Their Bread Omlette Is And They Are Simply Looting The Passengers Eleminating The Better Options.... Dont Know About The Lunch Or Dinner They Serve As I Ordered Mine Through TRAVELKHANA

Why didnt complaint about this to the catering manager in PC. He is bound to help you, and if he doesn't, then simply ask him for bill for whatever you have taken.
But if he doesn't agrees to make a bill, then call 1800-111-321. Complain on this number with the train number and everything. I am 100% sure the pantry manager will come running to you with "sorry" on his face.

This train has very old rake. atleast the one on which i travelled on 20-12-15. All the Ac coaches were built between 1999-2004. Except B3 which was a '09 built. The condition of the coaches are somewhat average inside and outside. Cleanliness is average. House keeping staff try to clean but passengers make them dirty within minutes. The toilet conditions are PATHETIC. specially the end which is attached to S13. all sleeper class passengers use this washroom and these two are very dirty. Cleaned only once in the morning in BSP. Thats it. Nothing else spotted. I was in B1 63 & 64. Availability of water is good.

Well,after my recent travel tips on 12261 durunto and jnaneswari,this time I am writing about 12809/10 train,based on my expernice.These train is having high stoppages between Cst and howrah,but a very demand train.Like Jnaneswari,geetanjali,durunto express(cst-hwh route)this train is also having highest priority,despite many stoppages.If u r a railfan,You should board this train.Since it has many stoppages,between cst and hwh,u can do rf,but beware,train has only 2-4 minutes stoppages for small stations.Do come back in time,else u will miss your train,lol.
Cleanliness:-Cleanliness is average.Same for sleeper as well as Ac coaches,but better then Geetanjali
Punctuality:-Well,i
...
more...
am bit surprised that this train reaches mostly on time or even before time.Kudos to these train!
Food:-Average.Better buy food from nagpur and othrt stations
Railfannning is good in this train,no intereference by pantry guyss/staffs(based on personal expernice)
:-) :-)

Good train to travel in Sleeper class (also AC classes) between Howrah Mumbai and vice versa.
It has best of ICF new coaches & nice cleaning by onboard 'Janitors' (cleaning staff) whom at a time may demand bonus very politely (baksheesh) on 2nd day evening...
