Sandhurst road and kopar are different from this case .... First is a subarban station so there are many such .... Second one is a crossover so again cannot be that one like surat

22922 GKP BDTS Antyodaya Exp Is A Fantastic Option For Urgent Travellers On GKP BDTS Route.
◆ Since It's A Weekly Train There Is Absolutely No Rush From Gorakhpur (Thanks to the Inconvenient Timing 0325 Hours)
◆ Seats Are Well Cushioned, Mobile Charging Ports,RO Drinking Water Available In Each Coach Are Some Highlights.
◆ Fare Is Slightly High But Managable (+15%)
...
more...
The Only Rush Point is Kasganj Station Where It Gets Filled Upto 70 - 80%
◆ Speed Is The Other Point Which You Will Enjoy,It Is Awesome In GKP-GD,CNB-MTJ & KOTA-BDTS Stretch.
◆If You've A Company Or With Family You Won't Get Bored In This Train.
◆ I Give It A 4.5 ★Star Rating Out Of 5
●Highly Recommend Train●

Bro I Think The Biggest Problem Is With Timing & Second Would Be Less Stoppages.
Starting Time 0330AM From GKP Then Skipping Entire GKP GD Loop Line Except NUH.
Again Same Thing In CNB MTJ Section.
These Are The Major Reasons Why Patronage Is Less As Compared To Other Antyodaya's.

On The Other Hand It's A Good Thing For Travellers Because Most of The Trains Run Jam-packed Not Only GS But SL Too)

May 08 2018 (12:08)   12993/Gandhidham - Puri Weekly SF Express (via Bhubaneswar) (PT) | ADI/Ahmedabad Junction (10 PFs)
Guest: bbb1581   show all posts
Entry# 3394179            Tags   Past Edits
Good train for GIMB Passengers to NGP/R/SBP/BBS.
1.Problems-
A. Is a weekly train with OK timings at Ahemdabad.
B.Tickets for Gandhidham/Vadodara/Surat passengers to Nagpur/Raipur/Sambalpur / Bhubaneshwar are NOT easily avaliable. Book them 4 month in advance.
C.Pantry
...
more...
Car not avaliable (However E-Catering avaliable at Nandurbar and Sambalpur).
D.Bad timings at Raipur (After Speedup in next TAAG it may be speeded up to reach Raipur by 0100 HRS)
2.Advantages-
A. Fastest connection between Surat-Bhubaneshwar
B.Cleanliness is just superb and Coaches are also newly made.
C.Rush of unreserved passengers is less in SL.
D.In return direction it covers a good amount of delay. (However 12993 reaches its destination delayed by 1.5 HRS).
3.Tips-
A.Carry your own food as on board vendors are also less
B. Book tickets 4 months in advance as RAC Clarence is also difficult in this train (Personal Experience)
C. Passengers could use E-Catering(served at Nandurbar)
D. Reaches its destination (as 12993) with a delay of 1.5 HRS. Return train is little bit good and a good delay coverer.
Thank you.
