railway authorites also not given much clerance that train will reaches kirandul or not .some times train stopped at jagdalpur or koraput only, due to because of maoist problems to kk line or fright derailments.if you take ticket for last stop the remaining amount given back at train stopped station only. no food provided in train .bring your own food with you. ap tourism provide food for passengers only who will debroad train at borracaves and araku valley . better to sit right side of the train because to see beauty of eastern ghats. no single point of MOBILE SIGNAL present between BODDAVARA(VALLEYS AND HILLS START FROM HERE) to ARAKU VALLEY. train never reaches destination in a time .after araku almost train is empty upto koraput ,by koraput train slightly fill upto jagdalpur.from jagdalpur mainly railwaystaff is travelling upto bacheli,kirandul .

Best train to see the beauty of Koraput - Rayagada section, which is loaded with Tunnels, tall bridges, thick forests, hills, vast agricultural lands, village tribes, animals ... i mean the train route from Koraput to Rayagada is absolutely BEAUTIFUL.
This train runs fairly empty until Rayagada, so you wont find any trouble getting a window seat / door spot :-)
The mini-samosa's sold by the local vendors for breakfast after the train crosses Damanjodi are super yummy :-)
you are visiting Jagdalpur, there are 2 phenomenal waterfalls within an hours drive: Tiratgarh Falls & Chitrakot Falls (dont forget to take the boat ride here). Definitely worth visiting !!

Pushpak express..!!!
Travelling in this train since early 2000s. It had no halts at MMR,ET and LAR earlier; however speed is maintained even after increased halts.
Thanks to Jhs-Cnb line electrification.
The best train from Cstm to Lko, always maintains punctuality. It is like one of the few trains in India who are always booked with a healthy waiting list.
many VIPs travel by Pushpak, the A/C coaches are very comfortable and well maintained.
Pantry is better than most other trains. It has got new rakes with charging points at every seat and bogies are fitted with bio-toilets.
It is an ISO 9001:2008 certified train.
I wish every super fast train should learn lesson of punctuality from Pushpak...!!! :)
