This train has an unscheduled halt at Thane over platform no : 08 for duration of 01 minute, train will crawl all the way from Parsik tunnel onwards. (even if there's green/amber signal given, then too it will halt, so never panic to deboard even from slowly crawling train).
Timing is around : 07:00 Hrs
I'd alighted here 4-5 times, you may too alight as deboarding at Lokmanya Tilak Terminus (LTT) & boarding a local train from Tilaknagar in peak hours will be a hard thing, that too with luggages!
Thanks.

Towards Kalyan they halt due to non-availability of green as they join mainlines after Thane, but towards opposite direction it's not clear

Be Aware Of Pantry Staff Of This Train. They Are Literally Fraud Elements. Yesterday I Caught Them Red Handed Selling Coffee At ₹25/- & Tea At ₹15/- . I Demanded For The “Price Chart” Which They Didn’t Show Me Till Now. Avoid Buying From Them As Much You Can

Re# 3764601-1            Tags   Past Edits
Pantry staff of any train run a loot business(except Raj/Duronto/Shatabdi). Once my father was travelling from HWH-GHY on 12345 and he ordered egg meal from PC. Once the caterer came to charge bill, he charged 160! Reason he gave was adding salad, sweet and other bogus things. Thankfully, the matter was solved and regular pay for egg meal was charged but that came after much trouble and arguments. That is why whenever I travel, I either get down at big stations and buy food from vendors or rely on e-catering.

Yes, they are not leaving a single opportunity to loot from people. Maybe this is due to many people actually not ordering lunch or dinner from pantry anymore. Because they cannot loot from big meals, they are using small snacks to make huge profits.

Or better, stop ordering anything from them. If majority of the passengers do not order anything then no matter how much they cheat, they will suffer a loss.

This train is one of the best train to Howrah.Honestly saying,opt this train instead of jnaneswari if having ample time.
I travelled recently on 12151 from Lokmanya Tilak terminus to howrah.Date 18/10/17.It arrived LTT late by 60 mins and departed at 9.40 pm,but still managed to arrived Howrah 8.20 am!!!.Food is not up to the mark,but overall a speedy journey though,overtaking the ontime 12809 mail at Jalgaon,Gondwana express near Bilaspur shows the priority.For railfanning too it's a good train.
Details about my journey on this train will be uploaded soon :)

See jnaneswari is one of the fastest train to Howrah but due to odd arrival at Howrah junction most of the people avoid it.I personally suffered many times because no buses are available and Taxi always charge high prices.So I prefer mostly samarsata now :)
