When it comes to make a journey between HWH and BHP this train is a CHAMPION. Rarely gets delayed. However the down train always gets delayed by about 15 minutes due to unavailability of platforms.

Among the general unreserved (sitting) coaches there is one coach with the newer reclining seats (see photo). This coach is right at the end of the train so a slight walk is needed. The other coaches are the standard 3x3 configuration.
Note - There is similarly, *one* such coach in the reserved sitting category also.

In AC Chair Car carriages, there is one charging point between windows. The windows are large and sometimes extend more than two rows so there is a chance of not getting a charging point.

The train is usually on schedule till Dunkuni Jn (15 km before Howrah). Thereafter it is frequently late on account of delay in getting the platform (usually 9 or 12) free. Expect a 15-20 minute halt at Howrah yard and arrival no earlier than 1600.
