Jhelum Express is the only train which directly connects Pune with Jammu. This train runs daily and also tends to be on time. The problem with the train is that it has got too many halt stations and total journey time is about 42 hours and ticket of this train should be booked well before time. As far as services are concerned, they are not up to mark.
Train was delayed, as it has got so many stoppages and takes too long time to reach at the destination. Will never prefer to go by this train again. No cleaning during the journey. Although got the nice company of co-passengers. Before boarding the train there was no information about the coach position which made us walk hassly after the train has arrived.
It was a great journey for my family members and I. We had lots of enjoyment during the travel but some passengerís tickets were not confirmed and it was troublesome in on our coach. I complained the ticket collector but he was not taking any action. The train was running on time in each station.
This was a very interesting trip from Pune to Jammutavi by train. Two nights in the train, and after that we had to take a bus to the Katra at Mata Vaishnavdevi shrine. This was a very happy moment for me to around Kashmir. I like this journey because of the Mata Vaishnav Devi temple & in the Kashmir Gulmarg point.
Though my last experience in Jhelum was not so good but this time it was altogether different. The train was on-time and facilities were much better this time though cleanliness part was lacking. In this train most of the passengers are army men from different parts of India which makes the journey again memorable.
It was a comfortable AC train with comfortable beds and the train was always on time. There were charging points and I loved my journey. The seats were in great condition and there were enough rest stops. Yeah I enjoyed the views.
We picked Jhelam Express from Agra to Pathankot Cant and then we travelled by bus from Pathankot to Jammu and then we went by bus from Jammu to Katra and then we went to Vaisno Mata Temple without any vehicle. In this train the food quality is good. The train reaches at time or one or two hours late. But we liked the train because it startís from the evening and reaches Pathankot in the morning.
