Recently I travelled in 12172 Haridwar Mumbai Lokmanya Tilak Terminal AC Superfast Express between Hazrat Nizamuddin and Jhansi. and I would like to share my experience and some tips regarding this train and anyone who is willing to board this train.
🔺Availability- Availability of berths specially in 3A in this train is quit easy. NIzamuddin is under RL quota hai and you will always see a waiting upto RLWL6-RLWL50. You dont need to worry as the confirm chances are upto 99% and current availability always open upto 150 berths from NZM.
In my case a seat was alloted in B1 middle, while B2 was completely empty even after current availability. I contacted the TT and coach attendent they provided me a side lower seat in B2, which was way more comfortable and whole trip passed nicely.
🔺Timings, Speed and Schedule- It has definitely one of the best schedule between Haridwar Delhi Jhansi and Bhopal. It runs as an overnight train and makes you reach early morning at Jhansi. It has a halt of 1 hour at Nizamuddin, reaches Jhansi at 06.15 in morning with 130kmph limit at Delhi-Agra section. Left With a delay of 5 minutes at NZM ran BT between Palwal-Bhuteshwar, Bhandai-Dabra section, arrived jhansi with delay of 15 minutes.
OT two trains namely 19803 Chandigarh Indore Express and 11058 Amritsar Dadar Express.
🔺 Bedding, Sanitation and Hygiene- 8/10 Bedding was good, well washed and fragrant. Coach was alredy sprayed with Room fresheners. Toilets were clean but Mugs were broken in few toilets.
🔺Arrival/Departure- Arrived Nizamuddin 10 minutes Early 23.05 at platform no.2, arrived Agra with delay of 10 minutes at platform no.1 and arrived Jhansi with delay ot 15 minutes minutes on 06.15 at platform no.2.
