Made numerous travels. In general a very well maintained train in terms of cleanliness. Regarding schedule, I faced same pattern in every travel - on time departure from SDAH, before time arrival at MLDT, at least 30 min delayed arrival at KNE which remains or sometimes extended until it reaches NJP.

NEW DELHI: The Ministry of Railways is at a loss as to why the number of passengers travelling in trains is going down despite no increase in fares. The railways have lost 150 million passengers in the five months of the current financial year, and Suresh Prabhu is worried.
The issue came up for discussion during the General Managers' (GMs) meeting on September 15. The trend of declining passengers left the Minister of State (MoS) for Railways Manoj Sinha astounded. "The trains are always full. You cannot get a reservation. Then how can you say the number of passengers travelling in trains is going down. There must be something wrong with the numbers," he is believed to have said.

Absolutely agree. Time is premium - railways must do something to restore punctuality of its service. With the so called premium trains running 1-2 hrs late on an average, I think more and more of urban middle class will shift to air travel.

Most preferred train to reach Sealdah on time. Departures from NJP has been unpredictable of late, with attaching of slip coaches and priority treatment given to Saraighat Express at NJP. However, lates are covered during long runs.
Position of coach A1 and A2 shown here is wrong. Actually it is between B2 and B1. H1, B7 - B2, A2 - A1, B1, S1, SLR
