Well,after my recent travel tips on 12261 durunto and jnaneswari,this time I am writing about 12809/10 train,based on my expernice.These train is having high stoppages between Cst and howrah,but a very demand train.Like Jnaneswari,geetanjali,durunto express(cst-hwh route)this train is also having highest priority,despite many stoppages.If u r a railfan,You should board this train.Since it has many stoppages,between cst and hwh,u can do rf,but beware,train has only 2-4 minutes stoppages for small stations.Do come back in time,else u will miss your train,lol.
Cleanliness:-Cleanliness is average.Same for sleeper as well as Ac coaches,but better then Geetanjali
am bit surprised that this train reaches mostly on time or even before time.Kudos to these train!
Food:-Average.Better buy food from nagpur and othrt stations
Railfannning is good in this train,no intereference by pantry guyss/staffs(based on personal expernice)
:-) :-)

Well,after 12261,this is the best train to travel to howrah.Through the arrival at howrah station is odd(i.e at 3.35 am) still it is a better train than Geetanjali and cst-hwh mail(via nagpur).This train is very well maintained by C.R.Jnaneswari,being a super deluxe train,has a top most priority in the entire route.No one dares to overtake this train.Through the coaches are old (some sleeper/ac coaches are of 1995-made),Still one can travel in comfortable mode.I don't know about the cleanliness of sleeper coaches,but the cleanliness of Ac coaches is up-to-date.Even Ac attendants and food staffs behaviour are very good,through not as good as 12261,still it is better.Dinner/Lunch/snacks of these train is extremely awesome.One must try 'Noodles' of this train.
About the punctuality:-As i said,this
train get high priority throughout the journey.So,it reaches its destination before or on time.I have travelled in these train 8 to 10 times and it reached howrah exact 3.30 an
Recently,In may 2015, have travelled in these train and it reached howrah one hour before time.So,u can understand how much the popular train is.
For railfanning,passengers/Staffs might interrupt you
'One of the best maintained trains of india' is what i will say'
:-) :-) :-)

One of the best trains to travel to howrah via cst-hwh route via nagpur.Has the top most priority throughout the journey and reaches howrah mostly on time.I have travelled in these train 3 to 4 times and this train has never disappointed me in terms of speed.Food is not up to the mark,which is common even in rajdhani.Better buy foods/snacks from Station's only like nagpur,bilaspur,tatanagar and all....
Beddings are clean,toilets are cleaned out throughout the journey.Well,an excellent maintained train in csr-hwh route.... :-) :-)
Staffs/Ac attendants behaviour are good.But they ask for tips
throughout the end of journey.
If u r a railfanand want some speed,then try these train...With superb speed and Cst-howrah route and vice versa has many beautiful ghats/stations,this will surely make your day :-) :-)

    -@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,...
