This is a average train but the time is excellent with almost on time service. Food service in the train is also average and quality of food is okay. Shridi is the place where we will be very happy and forget all our pain's. So the rest thing hardly matters.
Travel was good overall. Also the train timing was perfect. Good hospitality and good travelling tour. A good place for sai devotees. The top shrine, I must say is well managed and well built. Must visit if you want to have a peaceful time alone in the sanctity.
The train was on time and the seats were comfortable. The pantry service was good. The food was also good. Travellers should pick trains in which they should feel comfortable. I travelled in 3 tier AC and it was good. The seats were very comfortable. It provides nice views. The toilets need to be a bit more clean and tidy. Pantry service is good. Although it was a good experience for me so far.
The train was running on time. Over all facility in the train was good. Fortunately I got two good co-passengers with whom I could enjoy. It was a very homely atmosphere in the train. My co-passengers were like my family members. I could get their help to reach Shirdi.
