I traveled by this train on 28th Oct ex Madgaon to Pune. I traveled in AC 3 Tier. A few observations:
1) The AC compartments of this train have rats in them.
2) Toilets were not well cleaned
3) No Pantry Car is a big trouble
None of the night lamps in the compartments were working .. so there was a state complete darkness thru the compartment
5) The train stopped at numerous places on Konkan Rail Track .. since I kept awake for several reasons, I counted for how much time did the train stop when it was not on any platform or it was on an unscheduled station. The total amount of such stoppages comes to FIVE HOURS !!!!!
6) The train reached Pune station at 9.40 am (which is 30 min BEFORE the scheduled arrival)
7) The timetable of this train and its clashes with other trains on KR track need a serious REVIEW >> PLEASE!!!!!

This is how all the trains in Indian Railways work.But u've to enjoy ur journey compromising all the facts.I'll give a small example of 15902 Dibrugarh Yesvantpur Exp,which covers a distance of 3,578 km in almost 68 hrs.(which should take around 42 hrs including stoppages count & if runs @ flat 100 kmph).I've experience of several times journey from Stg Pt to destination & its taking literally 26 hrs more (almost a day extra).But I dont complain about that because I felt the journey enjoyable.:-)

the timing you are stating is Monsoon timing. Come November 1st the timing changes and there is hardly any buffer time on this train.
