Travelled in this train in AC 2 Tier (2A) from Thane to Kanpur Central on September 18, 2022.

The coach position for this train has been incorrectly displayed on this site, as well as on Where Is My Train. In my personal experience, the coach positioning for Sitapur bound 12107 was as follows -

One General Compartment →Sleeper coaches (S1 to S12) → Pantry Car (between S11 and S12) → AC 2 Tier (A1) → AC 3 Tier coaches (B1 to B4) → One General Compartment → Generator

Waitlisted passengers have a good chance of getting confirmed ticket in this train (at least for AC coaches). Plenty of tickets were available in current booking for 2A and 3A when I boarded, and still many passengers get down at Bhopal.

Although this train has been extended to Sitapur Jn, almost all station announcement systems still refer to this train as Lucknow Express. I mentioned this just in case any passenger gets confused on platform.

This is indeed amongst the best. Travelled in 1ac from CST to Nizamuddin on 8th June 2022 & My observations:-
1. Punctuality - Slightly delayed at Jalgaon, Gwalior but before/On Time at Nizamuddin. 5/5
2. Railfanning - Start with Thull ghats & end with multiple overtakes next morning. Maja hi maja. 5/5
3. Cleanliness & Maintainance - 1st class. Damn good. Be it
2ac or 1ac, super clean exterior, interior, washrooms. After every meal, cabin was cleaned. Washrooms remained clean till destination (both 1st & 2nd ac). 5/5
4. Food - Simply delicious. They have jain food available too in dinner & breakfast. In 1ac, you can put forward your requirements for something if you dont want regular food. Like paneer bhurji/paneer chilly in place of matar paneer, aalu jeera in place of mix veg. Eat to your heart, supplemented with an ice cream (vanilla flavour, try your luck for some other flavour. Like on asking I got butter scotch) & sleep in chilled cabin/coupe.
Snacks - sandwich, samosa, soan-cake, tea/coffee, roasted almonds
Dinner - Rice, Chapati, Dal, Matar Paneer, Mix veg, Curd, Pickle (can change as per requirement)
B/F - Cornflakes, Bread butter, cutlets/omlette/upma/poha (poha avbl for jain), tea/coffee 4.8/5 (daal could have been bit better, else everything good)
5. Staff - Very polite, no - nonsense staff. Attending & serving with smile. Didn't ask for any tips at the end. OBHS took feedback digitally. 5/5
Overall a very nice train to travel in 1st ac or even 2ac (food will be different but rest things almost same)
Expectations were good enough & this train did fulfill it. No complains, No regret.. 🙌👏👏👏👏

The Vishvanathar temple here, one of the ancient temples built during the
Pandyas period is considered to be “Banaras of south India” and has a large
area in this part of country. The temple has Deities of Lord Siva, Lord
Karthikeya and many other important Deities. The Gopuram of this temple
was not finished by the kind, was constructed recently and is one of the
tallest Gopurams in Tamilnadu. The Ilangi Kumarar, Thirumalai Kumarar
temples are also located nearby and both the temples are very famous, ancient
and loved to be visited by the large number devetees from South Tamil Nadu.
