This train has OBHS (On Board Housekeeping Staff) facility.
Cleaning done in morning and evening by janitors whom are based by Santragachi coaching depot, S.E.Rly
They don't ask for tips!
Water is available & refilled at Tatanagar or Rourkela, next day at Bilaspur, Nagpur and Bhusaval.

Very badly maintained. Gets around 12 hr TAT at CSMT, still not cleaned. In the whole journey ( i was onboard till ROU) only bathrooms were cleaned that also next day at BSP and then at ROU. Though new LHB coaches but maintainance was also bad in contrast to HTE based 22845/46 which also has new LHB SL coaches but that is very well maintained and cleaned. The flushes of bathrooms don't work, taps are loose or broken and leak. Most of the wash basins are choked, cleaned in BSP but again after first use it got choked. The floors of bathrooms are always wet with some amount of water always present there. My observation was in S3,4,5. For maintainance and cleanliness I will rate it 1.5/5. Had the pax not behaved properly, I can't imagine what would have happened to cleanliness in the journey from CST to HWH. Railways...

should Thank pax for doing their bit to keep train somewhat clean or rather should say " less dirty".

Seriously, it was better maintained during it's ICF days than in present LHB condition. All push buttons of toilet flushes are missing, fitted with old rudimentary taps as if coach is 20 years old ICF one. Santragachi coaching depot of S.E.Rly is very poor at maintaining LHB coaches in short.

Breakfast (Bread omelette) is Rs 50/- I guess. That's what I was charged in Samarsata and HWH-CSTM Mail in January.

you can trust this train's punctuality for arriving mumbai. Even if its late at nasik road,it reaches igatpuri on time,and so at kalyan,dadar and cstm, as it has good amount of slack in between NK and IGP.
Awesome aggresive speed throughout the journey. Fully enjoyed it.
