Travellers should pick trains according to their choice if they are in hurry and want to travel in less time pick Shivganga or Rajdhani which have less stoppages otherwise if you have enough time then I would suggest you to pick Kashi Vishwanath Express which covers more than half of Uttar Pradesh in single way and you can enjoy at each stations. You can enjoy local food and drinks which are famous in that locality.

The Shiv Ganga Exp (12559) is a good train because of it's great speed, timing and cleanliness. I travelled in 3 AC with upper birth. There seats are in good conditions. In my route the station Kanpur is a good station. I am directed to any one to stay here and take a tea here. The pantry service is very good in this train. I want to travel by this train lot many times.
