Good train giving first connectivity to BDTS WRly line of Mumbai (ST too) which is a high traffic route. There are some observations to increase its utility, so as to make it a preferred train over many other trains running on the route:
(1) In the western end, this train shall be primarily meant to attract paxs from ST as it would not be very much preferred by Mumbaikars due to longer distance and time taken than other trains going via nashik, except limited persons residing very near to BDTS Rly station.
(2) At
the eastern end, there shall be more traffic from BBS/ CTC and SBP to some extent. Very inconvenient timing at BBS/CTC is a not desired.
(3) The train still can run full due to large traffic for intermediate stations. Substantial intermediate traffic shall be there in this train due to several big cities/ Rly Stns between ST(UDN) and SBP.
(4) This train shall better serve the major traffic destinations if the train departs BDTS at 14:10 hrs, and reach UDN(17:55), JL(23:05), BSL(23:40), AK(1:40), NGP(5:50), R(10:10), BSP(11:45), CTC(20:27), BBS (21:10).
(5) This train miss an important station DURG (which serves Durg-Bhilai twin cities) enroute, while stopping at several stations having much lesser traffic potential and importance.
Following data aptly justifies the stoppage of this train at Durg:
1 - KMs of non-stop Run before stoppage
2 - Railway Station Name
3 - Population 2011 census
4 - Revenue generated by the station in Crores of Rs.FY 2014-15
I-1-I-------2------I-------3--------I----------4-- -------I
000-BDTS-Mumbai MetroArea----367.84 Crore Rs.
018-Borivali------MumMetArea---176.17 Crore Rs.
165-Valsad--------01.70 lacs-----039.06 Crore Rs
065-Surat---------44.68 lacs-----372.94 Crore Rs
157-Nandurbar---03.30 lacs -----lesser than 8 Crore Rs(not A class)
150-Jalgaon------04.60 lacs------between 8-60 Crore Rs- A class stn
024-Bhusawal----01.87 lacs------051.71 Crore Rs
140-Akola--------04.26 lacs------045.32 Crore Rs
253-NGP----------24.06 lacs-----305.67 Crore Rs
xxx-DURG-Bhilai-10.64 lacs-----102.86 Crore Rs, Durg alone-69.85 Cr
308-Raipur-------11.24 lacs-----093.44 Crore Rs
111-BSP----------04.54 lacs-----127.57 Crore Rs
204-Jharsuguda--00.98 lacs-----lesser than 8 Crore Rs(not A class stn)
049-Sambalpur---02.70 lacs----between 8-60 Crore Rs- A class stn
157-Anugul-------00.44 lacs----lesser than 8 Crore Rs(not A class stn)
012-(Talcher Rd)-00.40 lacs----lesser than 8 Crore Rs(not A class stn)
048-Dhenkanal---00.67 lacs----lesser than 8 Crore Rs(not A class stn)
058-Cuttack------06.53 lacs----044.04 Crore Rs
028-Bhubaneswr-08.43 lacs----113.61 Crore Rs.
For a train with 18 stops for 1945 km journey, including not so significant stops as evident from above table, stop at Durg is a necessity, and Gondia (51.43 crore revenue, 1.33 lacs population) too deserves a stop between the 308 km long non-stop run between NGP-R.

Reduce the Speed Between Udhna to Nandurbar. Its Overspeeding here.
Also Reduce the speed between Sambalpur and Bhubaneswar.
Reduce the speed so that the Timetable will be such that This train arrives Cuttack at 04 am and Bhubaneswar at 5 am.
