This is the sister train to 12101/12102 (see RSA).. An excellent train, and it drops you at HWH at a better time than 12101/12102. Food quality is good, (my personal opinion), but the early morning tea from station vendors at KGP is just awesome ! All in all, a good train!!

It is better than trains on this route, incl Duronto. Of course, food quality is based on personal opinion

Absolutely. I travel at least thrice a year to Kolkata from Mumbai on this train. I cannot remember anytime, when the food was bad. All along it was quite good and filling, with good service. You can even get extras, like extra rice. If you tell the waiters, they will remember it and serve it to you. of course you will have to pay for that, followed by a healthy tip to your server, at end of journey.

I've seen Azad Hind Express used to arrive at Bhusaval & it used to be overtaken there by Jnaneshwari Deluxe, hence there after it follows till Howrah in between inverval of 20-15 mins...
In return direction journey Jnaneshwari Deluxe use to trail Azad Hind Express right from Malkapur - Bhusaval or sometimes even from Nagpur itself (in some rare cases Jnaneshwari Deluxe overtakes Pune bound Azad Hind Express at Akola - Bhusaval section)...

Well, the times I have travelled, I was lucky to have Azad Hind at my tail. On all occasions Azad Hind arrived late at Bhusawal, but only by minutes. In Chattisgarh (RPR - BSP), you will notice a third track. I have had instances when Jnaneshwari is stooped at any outer signal, Azad Hind will slowly crawl in on the third track. Many times it has happened that Gondwana Express is preceding Jnaneshwari, so it will be Gondwana, Jnaneshwari, and then Azad Hind, all back to back, in quick succession. While coming from HWH, either Jnaneshwari or Azad Hind is ahead, depending on which train started ahead from HWH. I have also noticed that Azad Hind was hauled by Bhusawal WAP4, and in one instance, by a Bhusawal WAM4

This is the only train, which has seats till the last moment!! It is due to the odd arrival times at HWH. Gitanjali Express and Mumbai - Howrah Mail are the most popular trains on Mumbai - Howrah route, due to the arrival timings at HWH. Duronto is catching up fast!!

Not exactly, you can see Sleeper class is highly patronized & AC class availability is due too large numbers of AC coaches (9 coaches), but still this train is not that popular like Gitanjali or Howrah Mail...

Re# 1009416-3            Tags   Past Edits
atleast in ac,i think empty seats are due to large no of ac coaches.also i prefer this due to its timing in hwh. 4am early morning in hwh is awsome time to reach.
i think it has very less useful stoppage after bsp.i mean pple travel to rou or ckp from bsp,and as far as i know there is huge crowd for kgp that like to board at bsp.
overall due to high no of ac/sl coaches and low demand of onroute stations due to odd timing,its easy to get reservation.

Yeah, you are right. These days even SL seats are not available on this train at some times. Maybe it is gaining popularity. It,s sister train, Samarsata, is going full too !! It has a very good ARR time at HWH.
