This train reached Secunderabad 10 minutes before time, thinking that Staff will close the gates of train for cleaning the train, I waited outside for about 10 minutes but thorough cleaning never happened (which goes on in Habibganj Shatabdi at Habibganj). Staff just cleaned the toilets, collected any garbage and cleaned windows with dirty clothes which made it more dirty (I cleaned it later with a newspaper). Coach Position is normally +/- 1 of whatever is shown on Coach Position Displays.
Train departed dot on time.
Food:

Welcome drinks and evening snacks were served at 3:30pm itself. Sandwich was pathetic , just the bread no filling in between. I also got Oil which had a Kachori 😂😂; it was so oily that when I opened it half of my tray was covered with oil. Others were packed food so they were Ok
After that till Solapur nothing was served, so my advice would be to carry your own food for the time in between and if the train gets late in reaching Solapur then God help you.
Soup is basically Rasam loaded with Coriander leaves
Dinner loaded from Solapur is really nice, all dishes are tasty and filling.
Cleanliness: First of all, trays behind seats are quite dirty so advice would be to get it cleaned by cleaning staff.
Okayish, toilets are normally drenched in water, soap dispensers have foam instead of soaps, no toilet paper coach is cleaned only two times, no cleaning of windows at intermediate stations.
Seats don't have headrest covers as promised in Swarn Project even overhead reading lamps don't work for some seats.
Room Freshners don't work.
Train can be late at intermediate stations but it's always on/before time at Pune Junction.
Stoppage time is also less for intermediate stations so if you have large luggage be ready to get in fast as people are way too slow in these things.
Above mentioned are strictly my opinions and subject to opinions; any opinion is totally welcome here please comment your opinions. Hope it helps 🙂

    @all: While we do nominally allow multiple IDs, these multiple IDs are NOT allowed to engage in misuse and "mischief". Voting multiple times in the same poll using multiple IDs, rating each other IDs' blogs using multiple IDs, etc. are classified as "gross misuse". . This is an advance notice that some of the...

    @all: IRI is a PUBLIC information website, like Wikipedia. The voluntarily posted Blogs, Train/Station Tips, Train/Station Pics, Polls, Train TTs, PNRs, etc. comprise the permanent publicly viewable and searchable repository of IRI. A PUBLIC info website is unlike WhatsApp, FaceBook, Instagram, etc. where people post personal pics and other stuff, which CAN...
