NTES updates provided for this train at Itwari junction are often incorrect. So please cross check from other sources before moving out as Shivnath Express arrived departs as Intercity Exp and vice versa. Status is updated for train arrival around1 hr before the train actually reaches station.

Travelled on 12649 on 2AC after electrification of Bengaluru-Hubballi line, here are my observations.

WAG9-HC link b/w YPR and UBL means that the train crawls at a mere 90 kmph on the 110 kmph-supported track. My train was delayed at UBL by some 1.5 hrs.

KCG, the run is excellent.

Food is lip-smacking. Cleanliness is well-maintained in all AC classes (don't know about SL).

As other rail users pointed out, SWR made the wrong decision in rerouting it via TK-UBL-BAY-GTL-KCG from the original YNK-DMM-GTL-KCG route.

Overall, a solid 8/10.

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.. 🙌👏👏👏👏
