Tab bhi Shatabdi se comparasion nahi hai. Shatabdi se dheemi speed, jyada stops aur agar yeh kabhi late huyi toh BPL Shatabdi ko isko OT karne mein 2 minute bhi nahi lagenge.

"In terms of Speed, its another Shatabdi" should then be reframed to "In terms of speed, its next only to the Shatabdi on this route".

I Took BreakFast in the train as I travelled in D2 Coach on 9/03/2015 Delhi to Mathura. The Quality of Veg Breakfast was very good for the price i.e. 30 Rs for 2 Bread Butter and 2 Cutlets and the food was fresh and Piping Hot. Secondly, The Train Was Trolled By NCR's Controlling as three Freights were Kept Ahead of us at Chata , Ajhai and Vrindavan Road and train had to eventually wait at the outer of all these stations reached Mathura Jn at 9:15 a.m.

Book ticket even if it shows high waiting list .
Nearly 800 seats are reserved for jhansi quota out of which hardly 100 fill up rest are all allocated to intermediate stations.
Or better still try current reservation for this train you will always get.
