A good connectivity for GIMB Passengers to BAM/CAP/PVP/BALU/VZM
A.Problems--
1. Huge slacks given in some sections (especially SIOB-VG and WR-NGP).
2. Is a weekly train with OK timings at Ahemdabad.
3. Ticket availability is

tougher than 12993 as it has good timings at almost all major stations in Up/down direction.
B. Advantages-
1. Cleanliness and punctuality are top class. In particular cleanliness has improved by a thousand times after conversion to SF.
2. If travelling from BRC/ST to BAM/CAP/PVP/BALU/VZM then this train should be the first preference.
3. Coaches are newly made (2A is 2007 made)
4. E-Catering avaliable.
5. Punctuality is superb. Never runs late by more than 30 mins
C.tips--
1. Opt this train from BRC/ST to PVP/BAM/CAP/BALU/VZM as I have found less cleanliness in 12843 Ahemdabad-Puri SF Express
2. If travelling to NGP/R then book tickets only in 12993 as this train is meant for GIMB/ADI/BRC/ST passengers to BAM/CAP/PVP etc.
3. Book tickets in ARP as ticket availability is too tough (especially from BRC/ST).
Thankyou
