The coaches are very very antique and from first glimpse itself you will understand the "age" of coaches.
But eventhough they are old, but till the maintenance is good, specially AC coaches. Sometimes rats and cockroaches are visible in AC coaches but for that i have written for "pest control" in complaint book. Kindly if you board this train and see these pests then immediately talk with attendent. If Pest control is pending, kindly fill complaint register. Don't ignore because sometime these rats even chew up the luggage (Personally have once suffered).

One of the best train from Puri to Howrah and Howrah to Puri. Most of the time its run on time. Most passenger prefers for its on time early morning arrival (04.50 am) at Howrah. Neat & clean, paper wrapped bedding provided by ECoR in ac coaches. Permanent loco link is Santragachi #WAP4.

I travelled 12838 on CTC-HWH yesterday. AC-2 Tier coaches were ancient (ICF with two windows per coupe), with door handles coming off and thick layer of dust on edges of seats, window rubber, etc. It was just about tolerable due to the short journey (6 hours to HWH).

Fill up your tummy full to optimum level before boarding the train if travelling from HWH. Only little snacks and tea available at KGP and BLS (at BLS it again on luck). No food available till KUR.
As its an overnight train, so food doesn't matter much, but most important keep a bottle of drinking water ahead of boarding. At night time no seller board it and hardly the train stops anywhere for long halts, so filling up bottles from any station is forgettable affair.
