1.Originally introduced as 217/218 Howrah-Sainthia Mayurakshi Fast Passenger,ran with Electric traction between Howrah and Andal, thereafter diesel loco was given (later ran till Rampurhat)
*During that time UP train departed Howrah at 16:25 & arrived Barddhaman at 17:47,ran via-Dankuni with NO STOPS between Howrah and Barddhaman.
*While DN train departed Barddhaman at 09:28 & arrived Howrah at 11:35,ran via-Bandel with NO STOPS between Barddhaman and Howrah (to avoid overtake by Bombay Mail via-Gaya in Chord line). Later commercial stop at Bandel was given.
2000-04,up train departed Howrah at 16:50 & ran via-Dankuni
*It had few general coaches, some Reserved Chair Cars,AC Chair Car and even a Non-AC First Class
*During 2011-12,had Pataka Tea advertisement over all coaches.
2.NOW,UP train is given on Platform No:6 of Howrah at around 16:00 hours, seats get filled immediately.
*Stops at Liluah mainly for Workshop passengers.
*Passengers from/to Bandel/Barddhaman gets connection with 12339/12340 Coalfield Express at Panagarh or Durgapur
[i.e,if You want to board Coalfield,u can board this train at Bandel/Barddhaman (where Coalfield has no halt) and deboard at Panagarh and change to Coalfield which comes 10 mins after it,
SIMILARLY in return,if You want to ge down at Barddhaman/Bandel (where Coalfield has no halt),u can get down at Panagarh from Coalfield and board this train till Barddhaman/Bandel]
3.In spite of being a passenger,gets high priority in between Howrah and Sainthia,UP train gets delayed after Siuri,while DN train usually runs ON TIME.
(when i travelled,it (DN) overtook late running Coalfield Exp at Mankar and once (DN) also overtaken Malda Intercity at Khana),was impressed by its aggressive run
4.Neat and clean coaches,clean toilets mostly.
5.Charging points present in few coaches (work well)
6.Last coach (when UP)/first coach (when DN) is LADIES cum Guard Coach with JANSHATABDI type seats
