This tip is from my recent travel in both 12133 and 12134 in 3AC in the month of Oct 2023. Please find the details below:

1. Punctuality: The Mangaluru Express is one of the least punctual trains running on the KR section. 12133 CSMT MAJN SF reaches Kumta with about an hour delay and further MAJN with an average delay of 2 hrs. 12134 starts late due to the late arrival of 12133 and gets delayed by an average of 5 hrs daily while reaching Mumbai. Railways have completely neglected a train
which was known for the priority in the Konkan section. I would still suggest booking in 12133 as a couple of hrs of delay is understandable but think twice before booking in 12134 as the 5 hrs average delay has been happening for atleast the last couple of years. If you have ample time, this would be the best train as the cleanliness and other facilities are good.

2. Cleanliness: The train is very well maintained and there is Onboard Housekeeping. The cleaning staff does a good job in both 12133 as well as 12134. After 12133 arrives at Mangaluru, they lock the doors and clean the entire coach for about 30 mins after which you may board it. I would give a 10/10 for the cleanliness

3. Food: This train does not have a panty car and you have to depend on the food loaded in the intermediate stations. In 12133, there was one vendor selling dinner and water after departure from Thane but I would strictly advice against depending on it. The Breakfast in 12133 is loaded from Kankavali and includes items like Tea, Coffee (Rs. 10), Upma (Rs. 25) Bread Omlette (50) Idli Sambhar. The taste was very good and seemed fresh. Goli Bajji is loaded from Karwar.
While in 12134, our train was delayed by 4 hrs at Kumta and hence Dinner was loaded at Kumta. I am not sure if it is the same case in regular run when there is no delay (which I guess hasn't happened in the past 2 years). Dinner in 12134 includes Veg Biryani with Raita (Rs. 90), Chicken Biryani without Raita (Rs. 120), Roti with Egg Curry and Tomato Soup. Veg Biryani and Chicken Biryani Tasted good and the dinner was from Ravikiran Catering Contractors Kumta.

4. Coaches: It still runs with ICF Coaches but the 3AC cooling is very good. The berths, toilets, etc. are also in good condition. In 12133, B4 Coach has RAC Passengers and avoid it if possible.

Overall: The cleanliness and overnight schedule of the train is the biggest advantage but the delays are a big concern. If you don't have a tight schedule and want to have a good journey, you may choose this train.

Once a Legendary Rocket, now it has been degraded to a passenger train.

It is a good train to travel to Konkan. Departs late in the night (next day 12.05 am) and hence good for office goers to log off in the evening and take this train. Here are the tips from my regular travel in this train:

1. Coaches and Maintenance: Tutari still runs with ICF coaches but the cleanliness in the coaches is top-notch. There is Onboard Housekeeping Service (OBHS) available on the train which keep the coaches clean. They sweep the floor atleast twice during a single journey and you can ask
them to clean whenever you feel there is a requirement.

2. Amenities: Charging Points and Mirrors are available in 3AC coaches. Toilets are clean. Some good amenities in the coach provided like Seat Indicators, Handle to climb up the upper berth, etc.

3. Crowd: Relatively less crowded than Konkankanya. This train halts at many stations enroute in Konkan region which is an advantage. In the peak seasons of Ganesh Chathurthi and Holi, each and every train on Konkan takes about 300% of its capacity so can't comment on the occupancy during peak period.

4. Food: Tutari doesn't have a pantry can and hence food is supplied by a Contractor form Kumta. Snacks like Sheera Upma (orange colored sheera), Bread Omlette, etc. are served in 11003 (Down)Train for breakfast. The snacks are average and OK. The food is a bigger dissapointment on 11004 (UP) Tutari. We tasted Chapati Bhaaji and Biryani and both were really bad. Avoid having Dinner in 11004. At Ratnagiri, there would be Vendors selling vadapavs and those should be avoided at any cost. They just fry the vadas multiple times and it becomes tasteless. Better to pack something from a local restaurant near the boarding station or take home cooked food.

5. Railfanning: It is a great train for Railfans as it takes many halts enroute and waits for crossing of most of the trains. It gets a lower proiority in the section and ends up being late by an average of 1.5 hrs on the enroute stations. 11004 has a scheduled overtake by Konkankanya at Indapur and it is a blazing one to witness in pitch darkness.

Overall: I prefer this train due to the timings and the cleanliness but food is a major dissappointment. Additionally, 11004 reaches Thane at a decent timing at around 6 am and you would be able to get better transport options (rather than Konkankanya that arrives way too early).

Have a safe trip,
