Almost the entire coach of 'S5' is booked ALJN onwards. So the scene at ALJN is something like:
Some 60-70 passengers coming from NDLS (mostly daily passengers and a few reserved travelers) de-board from S5 and an equal amount of people board into S5. And all of this has to happen in the stoppage of 2 minutes only.
So the tip here is, be as quick as you can, S5 will be slightly to the right after entering from the exit gate. Coach position indicators mention it correctly. Better board S4 or S6

and walk through, because 120 seconds is all you 120 guys have!

expected arrival at PNBE is not applicable for any train at PNBE these days ;)
and I'm suggesting to those people who don't want to wait at NDLS till morning hours to catch their train :)

There are still few intelligent people, who board their train at 04:00 am in the morning at NDLS and reach PNBE at 03:00 am :)
They also spend 24 hours, but they are comfortable with such timings ;)

Yes this is best train from NDLS towards Patna in winter and Shramjervi is best from PNBE towards NDLS...As there is very less chance of reschedule chances in their respective station.

During the FOG / winter season -
Always prefer to travel in this train between NDLS and PNBE.
Becoz - Its pantry car has sufficient food items for the whole next day journey :)
whereas other trains which are scheduled to arrive early in the morning at NDLS, but will not reach NDLS before evening time (DURING the fog), you will not get

yes, and this applies to 12401 as well.
I've personal experience of this.
It takes almost 24 hours, but you will get pantry service everytime, till next day night also.
Whereas, SK and VS me toh paani bhi naseeb nahi hota aur outer pe khada rakhte hain, ise to platform pe jagah bhi naseeb ho jaati hai :P
