This Train is one of the most Punctual Trains of IR except Winters when Due to excessive Fog in the Northern Part of the Country it gets delayed. Otherwise it is a Superb Train to travel and Yes after Shatabdi gets the Utmost preference over other SF or Express Trains. Catering is available but Pack Food from Home itself and Yes U can otherwise take something to eat from Ambala , They also Provide Veg Thali at Ambala but only for CC People and it is of not of good quality. Personally i have been travelling in this Train from my childhood and it has never let me down , though now is the right time to provide it with a LHB Rake and increase it's speed as it was earlier the case i.e. 4-5 years back when it used to reach at 10:20 Sharp NDLS and did not have so
Indeed one of the decent intercities of NR. The only issue with this train is that the rake remains extremely dirty. No proper maintenance is given at NDLS.
Verka Kheer at Ludhiana, Kulche Chhole at Ambala, Bread Pakoras at Panipat...you could try these on the way...they are tasty and good...!!!!
