This is the sister train to 12101/12102 (see RSA).. An excellent train, and it drops you at HWH at a better time than 12101/12102. Food quality is good, (my personal opinion), but the early morning tea from station vendors at KGP is just awesome ! All in all, a good train!!

I would say 12152/51 has even better food options.
Eg : In 12152 you can buy some poori / gughni from station vendors at Jharsuguda & Raigarh for breakfast. (many time onboard vendors too sell it) [Image attached] & at Nagpur itself you can buy your dinner
Plus this train 12152 has much more aggressive run than Jnaneshwari Deluxe, while 12151 is a crawler from Akola itself till Nagpur.

This train has an unscheduled halt at Thane over platform no : 08 for duration of 01 minute, train will crawl all the way from Parsik tunnel onwards. (even if there's green/amber signal given, then too it will halt, so never panic to deboard even from slowly crawling train).
Timing is around : 07:00 Hrs
I'd alighted here 4-5 times, you may too alight as deboarding at Lokmanya Tilak Terminus (LTT) & boarding a local train from Tilaknagar in peak hours will be a hard thing, that too with luggages!
Thanks.

Best train for last minute reservations in AC classes in the ever jam packed Mumbai Kolkata section. Food is good (As per IR standards) and the OBHS Staff keep the train neat and Clean... Does take a longer, slower route but maintains punctuality and 60 kmph average is pretty good.. Should be one's go to train in this section for reservations before attempting for Tatkal reservations

Good standard cleanliness. The OBHS staffs often clean the coaches & sprays room freshner . The toilets & wash basins were also clean & taps didn't went dry inspite of such a long journey.

Just one word " Superb " . Had an excellent jouney from NGP to HWH though it takes more time than Azad Hind & Mumbai Mail but still its an excellent train in terms of speed & punctuality. Departed NGP & arrived HWH on dot time inspite of getting delayed in the middle .Throughout the journey the train didn't dissapointed me in terms of speed. It was very much similar like travelling in Rajdhani.
