Gurudev Exp with ED WAP4(before VSKP) and HWH WAP 4(after VSKP) at BHC,KGP.
My journey from VSKP-SRC.I'll put light on some pros and cons.
a)It came bang on time at VSKP despite of travelling from a distance as half of India.
was always getting halts on each scheduled stops for more than 10mins and the reason was that it was very much before time.
c)Superb speed! HWH WAP 4 just showed its class.
d)No unscheduled halts at all in spite of a halt at MCA to pass Shatabdi.
e)In the leg of VSKP-HWH many trains were halted to pass this train and it skipped stations ferociously.
f)Toilets were usable in AC classes.
2) Cons
a)very old coaches.
b) Everything was almost broken.The glass was broken of the door(Not the coach door...the door which is to restrict air pass)
c)Bed sheets were 2 years old and untidy.
d)Extremely dirty and full of bottles and wrappers on the floor.
e)There was no difference between sleeper class and sleeper the ratio of seats and persons was 1:5.
f)Coaches other than AC were not suitable for a fresh human to travel.
g)NO pantry.
Verdict- If you dont care of cleanliness but you wanna reach on time then this is the best. I felt like coromandel on it in case of speed.
