For those who wish save money:
If you want to travel from Coastal Odisha to Howrah for sunday arrivals , and unable to get confirm ticket (or wish to save some money like me) , then just take a unreserved ticket for Howrah and board this train (on saturday night departure from puri). Go to general bogie and alas you will feel as if you are inside a reserved bogie. The coaches are completely empty (whereas shri jagannath express general coaches crowd is very famed). Just board your coach and choose whichever seat you want and go to sleep calmly. Nobody will disturb you as hardly anybody boards. All the crowds are swept away by Shri jagannath express.

a good night's sleep, wake up at 6 am and you will find yourself near Hijli. Pack up and alight the train at KGP. Then board any local (Lots of local are present and your same unreserved ticket till HWH will work) bound to HWH. Preferable wait for the Meedinipur Howrah Local and by 9-9.30 am you will be at HWH. So for total journey taken from Puri to HWH, then you will cover it in exactly in 9hr which is much lesser the time taken by Shri jagannath express (which takes 9hrs 40min). Plus nearly Rs 135 saving without any compromise for leisure.
PS: This trick only works for saturday night (this train) and friday night (VSKP Digha SF runs on Fridays on same slot). And this will not work for any other day. So before planning anything, kindly check out your date & day of journey.
