#BookingTip
People who wish to take this train from Balasore/Kharagpur to Delhi (Never opt this train,still if having NO other option) , and getting Regret status , then book Bhadrak to New Delhi and Change your Boarding Point to Balasore/Kharagpur (Whichever is your boarding station).
Balasore is Charting station for this train and BLS & KGP are under RLWL , whereas BHC is under GNWL , thus having more chance to get confirm seats.

You can not.
You have booked a Ticket From KGP to NDLS, then you cannot change its boarding from a previous station.
Only option is Cancel this ticket and Re-book for Bhadrak to New Delhi by paying extra money and change the boarding station to Kharagpur.

FRESH fruit juice is available at platform number 2. The pineapple juice costs ₹20. It is really good in taste. Hygiene is also maintained.

This is the most punctual train between Howrah- Bhubaneswar, runs 6 days (except Sunday) a week. Most of time it reaches at Cuttack junction 5 to 15 minutes before its schedule arrival time. Its average speed is 65 km/hr (as per IR time table). This train was introduced to run from Bhadrak to Howrah and Howrah to Bhadrak in 2002-03 Rail budget and later on it extended upto Bhubaneswar. Now a days Vishakapatnam based WAP- 4 locomotive in charge to haul the train for its up and down journey. Photo Credit- You Tube.

Charging sockets are present on every Pole on Pf 1 and Pf 3. And All are in working conditions.
A suggestions wish to give:
If you have any train which is 23 coaches or 24 coaches longer , and have been allotted Pf 3 , plus your coach is at rear end, then start moving towards the Farthest end of the Pf (Trust the Coach Display Monitor present) even before the train arrives. You will be surprised that hardly 18-19 coaches will come under the Actual Shed while the rest will be somehow
...
more...
near to the Station Board or even more farther towards the extreme end of Platform. Sometimes in 24 coacher Trains ,the last coach (In 25 coaches Trains which have HCPV at front even the Rear General bogies come outside the Platform) comes outside the Platform length.
But this problem doesn't comes on Pf 1 which is just in front of the Pf 3.
