Train takes the Howrah Barddhaman Main line route due to congestion in the Chord by Mumbai Mail and Darjeeling Mail, which it follows closely upto Malda Town with Padatik Express just behind. After New Bongaigaon Karmabhoomi Express takes the route via Goalpara Town - Dudhnoi and not Rangiya as mentioned in the time table..

The Mangalore Madgaon Passenger, even if delayed by an hour till Gokarna Road, manages to reach Madgaon by 13:00.. Down train usually runs 40-45mins late..
Onboard licensed vendors sell tea, coffee, samosa, dosa, idli, sandwiches, vada pav, lassi, mineral water, cold drinks and chips.. Prices are quite reasonable.. Lassi comes for Rs 15, Sandwich for Rs 20 each and 2 vada pavs for Rs 20.. Though primarily tomato with mayonnaise, the sandwich is good.. Vada pav is just okay to beat hunger.. Chips are sold at a higher rate than MRP..

Train awesomely maintained with 2014 coaches.. Slow but by early morning rise gives you a splendid experience of the Western Ghats in the dark/semi dark..
Runs empty after Mangalore Central..

For people travelling from NCB or NOQ to HWH, the quota for these stations gets exhausted too soon.. Changing the boarding point to NBQ and paying 50 extra rupees can often fetch you confirmed seats as there are ample number of seats from the stations in Assam..
