this largely unpopular train is the fastest rail connectivity between delhi and bangalore, and often berths will be available even tiil the last moment, maintains excellent speed for most part of the journey except the tough gradients of SWR between DMM and YPR, but still manages to beat the rajdhani by one hour in terms of speed.(with similar halts, but of technical nature)

This train along with the likes of indore intercity and GT exp should originate from NZM.It will increase its avg speed on paper and also reduce congestion on delhi tracks.

at GDG/Gadag Junction: on time
a whopping 40 minutes BT at gadag junction, my coach was just the third from loco, and guess what, I along with a group of about 5 people chatted away with the LP for about 25 minutes beside the humming DP4, unfortunately, left my phone in coach with mom for safety concerns, couldn't click any pics, but super friendly LP

steady speed of about 100 kmph with ease, not really a surprise with the white stallion in the lead

NNB/Nimblak 6 km<-->2 km VL/Vilad: 27m late
well, there it is my dear RFs, chaos caused by UR pax who boarded from ANG. Its my mom's first tour up north, and she's furious and bemused. More so because I'm usually short tempered but am not doing anything here, but that's only because I know how things are up north here. Have experienced far worse things.
