This 12859 was my Favorite Train since childhood. We were lucky to get tickets in this train even in those days. Used To be so clean, Organised and Fastest Connection. Time table was always Maintained.
But My last travel in 12859 was a Disgusting. Since East Coast Railway Took Over This Train.
1. I was standing in Kalyan Railway station and due to some reason i missed the Loco Part of train and saw mid Train i could not see any name plate Saying MUMBAI-HOWRAH , it was bloody
MUMBAI-PURI and all written in ORYIA language. It was instinct which got me into train when i saw bengali Looking womens dashing in 2AC coach.
2. Coaching has been done by ECR is worst they must be using all the condemn Coaches of ECR in this Train. No cleanness seats were not maintained Torned seats in 2AC . AND forget about Sleeper Class That WAS more pathetic.
3. You could just look at the train from outside and can tell how your ride will be on these type of coach Maintenance By ECR.
Looks Like SCR has Given up on 12859 and This train will Go down as one of the beautiful song of Indian Railways. That was my last ride with 12859 now preferring Jhaneshwari SF which is better maintained and inspite of slower Time Table At least have a Comfort and Clean Ride.
Am I the ONLY one Complaining About this One .....

There are many such trains which were doing excellent before having a RSA.... 8 years ago when I travelled in was one of the most comfortable journey......
Now most of the pax prefer either Jnaneshwari or HWH Drnt while Gitanjali has slipped down in preference....

RSA has completely destroyed the legacy of Gitanjali Exp. There is absolutely zero coach maintenance by ECOR. If IR is interested in bringing back the old gitanjali than RSA has to be stopped.

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
