It was my second trip on board 12213. Watching sunrise at the horizon of endless fields near Sedam is a great start to the day. Similarly, at dusk we get some pleasant sceneries in the back drop of marshy water lands along Amla - Betul stretch in Madhya Pradesh. Coaches are normally clean and tidy. The max observed speeds (using ulysse) across different stretches are as follows
1. SBC - SC: 110 Kmph
2. SC - NGP : 120 Kmph
Jhansi - Tuglakabad :130 Kmph
Here is a pic from the first stretch.

WAP7 at full throttle ! We accelerated from 40 Km/h to 100 Km/h in 79 s and 40 Km/h to 120 Km/h in 116 s along the Itarsi Jhansi stretch and then peaked at 130 Km/h around Mathura the next morning.

I had the privilege of traveling in India's fastest Jan Shatabdi last month. The train arrived Mathura (from where I boarded) almost 12 minutes before time. I travelled in CC and the coach was very clean. I was glad to see the information screen with details on next arriving station, distance from start (Kota) etc. mounted near the door. Hot tomato soup that I could buy on board was really yummy. We were doing 100+ for nearly the entire stretch and reached Nizamuddin on time.

I travelled from Delhi to Mathura by this train in March. Our WAP4 started picking up momentum after Faridabad and we were rocking at MPS of 110 Kmph for nearly the entire stretch till Chata and reached Mathura about 10 minutes before schedule. There were lots of vacant seats and the general compartment too was nearly empty.

This is one of my most cherished day time journeys - a good mix of speed, leisure, food, class and above all, company of nice and very friendly people onboard.
We cruise at around 130 kmph all the way between Delhi and Ratlam and then mostly around 120 there afterwards. Here is one pic from July 2014

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    -@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,...
