Best connection in terms of punctuality between Bihar(Patna),Tata and Chattisgarh and better than BSP-PNBE weekly. But be aware, tickets availablity is very much less and gets a huge rush throughout​ the year. So if you are avoiding these problems then please prefer BSP-PNBE SF weekly.

Cleanness is very good and cleanness done in train on Bilaspur and Rourkela on Bihar route it is available in Asansol. On Tata Station Coaches filled with water but coach cleanness is not available in Tata because of Rourkela and Tata distance is only 3hrs asked to Tata official they told that on 3hrs cleanness is not possible on return 13288 its available cleaning coach done in Asansol and TATA only. 1, 2 and 3 image taken on BSP wash basin is clean and toilet is in good condition. 4 & 5 pictures train bathroom Cleaning is on Process on Rourkela Junction.

ECR maintenance and cleanness is very bad on some coaches while some others have good i mostly travel in this train and the trains S8 to S11 is best in terms of cleanness while boogies which is booked for Patna is very dirty and no cleanness.. S8 to 11 is reserved for Rou Tata bound passengers then this bogies fill patna bound passengers from Tata station.
