For those who visit Gandhidham for the first time--
➡ Cleanliness is top notch. Not only the station platforms but the station premises are also clean. the FOBs are a bit unclean. Cleanliness of most train whose PM lies with Gandhidham have astonishing cleanliness. ( top 7th clean station of country)
➡ Escalators are absent but porters are avaliable in adequate number and charge you depending on Platform of your train and luggage.
➡ Food is avaliable on all Platforms. However for those travelling by long distance train, they should take adequate water and food stuff because till Ahemdabad, no station has food and mineral water stalls. Even vendors do not come to sell mineral water and food stuff.
➡ Transport facilities are very good good. If you are looking forward to go to Bhuj, White desert, Nakhatrana etc. Then many people having vans provide you this service. These people will greet you at Gandhidham Railway station entrance( Main) asking you if you want to go to Bhuj, Nakhatrana etc. They charge you with acceptable Fees. Or else GSTRC bus stand is about 2-3 km from Railway Station. Autowalas present in adequate number which take to different part in Gandhidham.
➡Safety is very good. They will check your ticket at the entrance when entering and exiting the station. So you better not tear off the Ticket after TTE has seen your ticket if travelling to Gandhidham.
➡ RPF police station present on PF1
➡ Trains originating from Gandhidham generally start from PF3. 12993/22973/12937/16505 are fixed.
➡Trains from bhuj/to Bhuj usually arrive on PF1.
➡Railfannnig not very excellent due to presence of RPF which prohibits photography. Plus ALCO / EMD spotting will be less.

Hope this helps. THANKS!✌
