AC coaches of all the rakes are not in proper order. It may be B1-A2-B2-A1 or it maybe A1-A2-B1-B2 or in some other pattern. Even all the rakes are not uniformly arranged. In some rakes AC Coaches are towards the loco and in the other rakes the AC coaches are at the rear side. Kindly check before boarding. Total 5 rakes are there of zone ECoR having RSA with Jagannath Express.

This train is almost running punctual i.e. somewhat running late upto 1 hour. Its speed is increased with entering the state of Maharashtra, especially, Nagpur. I travelled in this train several times but I got only 2 results. One of them is that its punctuality. Its scheduled time at NGP is 7:20 but it sometimes reach at 7:45. Another one is that if it is running late then slowly-slowly its speed is increased between 2 halts that's why the late duration also decreases upto its destination.

Gitanjali is a train known for its speed and punctuality despite the rather high number of halts between Bhusaval and Jharsuguda. The tickets in this get sold out very quickly and hence getting one is difficult. However, the Sleeper class coaches were as good as unreserved (I travelled from NGP to DURG). If you are travelling in AC then peace of mind is guaranteed but for Sleeper class, prefer Jnaneswari/Samarsata/Mumbai Weekly SF etc. ! (Based on personal experience)

Good train to travel and one of the best trains to travel from mumbai to howrah.It maintains a good speed of around 110 km/hr.I will rate it as second best train to travel from cst to hwh(first being mumbai-howrah duronto)

Gitanjali Exp is very good train in terms of Speed, Puncuality, & Priority. But in terms of Cleaning very Bad. In my journey my coach was S11 2014 made Coach no 14217 is in very pethentic from inside. In my Journey on 30/03/17 toilet cleaning done only at Roukala. Full coach is dirty.
Chargeing Point avilable in train on Both side with 110Volt warning only for mobile chargeing
