We booked the ticket well in advance for A/C 3 tier. The coaches were clean and we reached Ranchi on time almost. The guard was helpful, the A/C was OK. The entire journey was done at night so was quite pleasant as it did not make us feel the tiring effect of the journey.

Train boarding time was at night around 10 or 11, as usual it was 2 hours late, but I choose this train as this is an overnight train hence I save time. Train didn't have a satisfactory toilet and I mostly ate from home-packed food or at stalls on different stations.

I had to travel for Ranchi and I selected Satabdi Express for a comfortable travel. Class CC was not bad but staff behaviour and quality of food was not acceptable. The toilet in the train was not so clean. I suggest all Satabdi traveller to complain against staff behaviour and food.

Good train route with very good sight seeing all around the journey. But the train is not so clean. Cockroaches and rats are all around the train. No pantry is available in the train. But the train is very very punctual in time. At all the journey is very good and remarkable.

It was a good train for travelling. The timing was correct and food service was good and decent. Recommended train from safety aspects. Day time train so one can see natureís beauty. Stretch from Bokaro Steel to Ranchi is beautiful as it goes through forest.
