The Train Departs Bang on Time from Source with A TKD Alco/EMD Till Ahmedabad on All 4 days of Journey from Delhi Sarai Rohilla, departs almost 4-5 mins late from Delhi Cantt & Same delay from Gurgaon. The Occupancy is Almost 50% from All these 3 Stations.The Trains gives an MPS Run till Khalilpur(A Station before Rewari) & Usually takes 5-7mins Unscheduled halt there, Rewari Departure is Almost 15-17mins Delayed(Sometimes On Time Also) from Platform 1, Almost 100-120 Passengers Board from Rewari. You can See Double Stack containers Between Pf3 to Pf7. The Train crosses it's Return Train 12216 BDTS - DEE GR at Rewari itself which reaches at Pf3, so sometimes passengers are confused that which train to board although regular announcements are made at Rewari Station.
Train Gives MPS run till Alwar Jn and usually maintains delay till Alwar. From Alwar Sometimes delayed 12403 Allahabad - Jaipur Express is given precedence, so GR Will trail it till Jaipur. Lunch order is taken post Alwar Jn. Usually at Rajgarh Crossing happen with Jaipur - Alwar. Post Alwar u will run on gap of 10-15mins with 19264 DEE - Porbander exp Whose scheduled OT is before Marwar Jn. Alwar - Bandikui - Jaipur is a decent run. The Train easily reaches 5-10mins before Time At Jaipur(on days when Probander Exp is not there and 5-10mins Late when Probander Exp is there) but the Departure will always be delayed by 10-15mins because of always delay Departure of Jaipur - Udaipur Exp. At Jaipur there will be huge crowd for this Train as its a best AC train for Jaipur - Mumbai Pacx. At Jaipur you will always get atleast 20mins halt, so one can take Lunch & water bottles from Station. From Adjacent Pf Jaipur - Mumbai Exp(Via Kota) departs Almost at Same time as GR Departs and arrives destination BDTS after GR.
Post Jaipur Till Phulera u will get a MPS Run, there is almost 0.01% chance that u will overtake Jaipur - Udaipur Exp but this happened in My Run and overtake Happened at Phulera Jn. Post Phulera till Kishangarh it's A Ok type run as u will be Trailing Porbander Exp. Train gets unscheduled halts at Kishangarh, Ladpura & Madar Jn and hence Ajmer Arrival will be 10-15mins Delayed. The Train gets Top Priority post Ajmer & May overtake Porbander Exp At Ajmer or Kishangarh Itself. Ajmer Halt is 5mins if train is delayed & the Max pacx will be boarding from Ajmer.The Train will be 95% packed by Ajmer Jn. At Ajmer or Daurai Ahmedabad - Jaipur passenger & Aravali Exp will cross 12215 GR which arrives at Platform 2.
You will face Numerous crossings in Rewari - Ajmer, Mostly all Trains hauled by BGKT EMD.
Post Ajmer you will get MPS Run, other train will be looped for 12215 GR & Almost 66-70kms is covered in 1st hour. Post Beawar The train even touches 115-117kmph & coveres almost 95-100kms in next 1hr. The Train passes through a Scenic Curver at Sendra(Near Beawar) where easily the aggression of the TKD link cam be observed. U will get a MPS Skip at Marwar Jn(Almost 110Kmph). If Porbander Exp isn't delayed than overtake happens at Marwar Jn. Marwar - Falna is the best section where the train thrashes every station at 110+ Speed. Doubling has helped a lot here. Falna Arrival is usually 10mins delayed and some 45-50 passengers may board from Falna. Dinner order is taken at Falna (Dinner has 3 parathas, 2 sabzi, dal, rice, pickle etc) Post Falna till Bhimana Again a Wonderful run covered in 1hr. If Bikaner Exp & Rajkot - DEE Exp is delayed u may get 30mins before arrival at Abu road and u will face crossing with Bikaner exp, Rajdhani & Agra Exp at Abu Road& if all slots on time u will be Stopped at Kivarli or Morthala and all crossings happens. At Abu Road one can enjoy famous Rabdi. Abu Road departure is usually 8-10mins Delayed from Platform 2 & Not much passengers from Abu Road.
Post Abu Road Crossing happens with Legend Ashram Exp usually at Satotra Road or Shri Amirgarh, usually Ashram waits at main line for GR, i.e GR crosses via loop line. Palanpur Arrival is 10-12mins Delayed. At Palanpur crossing with 19027 Vivek Exp & Ganganagar Exp Slot Trains. Post Palanpur it's a good run till Gandhinagar Capital, u will face crossing with Suryanagri Exp, Bikaner Exp Etc Trains. At Gandhinagar Capital some 10-12 passengers Board/Deboard Train where departure is usually 25-30mins delayed. Post Capital some 15-20mins delayed is covered till Ahmedabad.
At Ahmedabad TKD Alco/EMD is detached and fresh BRC WAP5/7 is given. Departure is Usually 10mins Late from Ahmedabad. Here some 80-100 Passengers Board/Deboard Train. Post Ahmedabad Train runs at 120 MPS so enjoys huge priority. Till Vadodara almost all delay is covered, usually it's 3-5mins delay Departure. Post Vadodara it's All MPS skip as u will run Ahead of King 12952 NDLS - BCT Rajdhani Exp. At Bharuch & Surat many passengers deboard train train. Surat Departure is usually on Time. Post Surat it's a best run, u will cover next 200kms in almost 2hrs-2hrs 10mins. Till Virar it's 120Kmph run. U will face MPS crossing with Many Trains like Ahmedabad Shatabdi, Jhansi exp Etc. Post Virar GR is sandwiched between Fast EMU trains. So it will run with 80-90Kmph speed. Suburban stations are skipped at Decent speed & Borivali departure is usually 8-10mins delayed. Post Borivali GR takes 7th line towards BDTS & King Rajdhani parallely overtakes GR. Post Borivali local vendors offer breakfast(Bread-Omlette usually)at 50-60rs. BDTS arrival is usually 5mins before or on Time as train enjoys top Priority in WR divisions.
All in all Till Ajmer it's A Decent run, but post Ajmer it's A Blasty run, a Top Priority run. Always runs packed, only discomfort is the SMB Birth rest all is perfect. The Train also has some Duronto & ICF Rajdhani Coaches.
It's my general review on this Train as I have travelled 10-15 Times end to end. Please correct me where needed. Also, Share your views on This.
