Train originate from Varanasi. So it was clean, toilet was also clean. On time to destination. Did not try food but it should be available as it is covering a good distance to Mumbai. There was no crowd. Maximum passenger got down at Mirzapur Station. If you have luggage coolie is problem in Vindhyachal. Over bridge to cross so be light.
Its a good train from Mumbai to Varanasi, nice facilities, good food. I used a/c coach, toilets are in very good condition and other service was also very good. Gentry is also very good they are very cooperative in nature. Blanket, pillow are all very well-washed. We enjoy lots of sightseeing during journey I think to visit Varanasi again and its a good destination. We will plan in future, must recommended.
Though railways have promised a lot about improving but things were as usual, same old dirty toilets, no announcements on stations about delays. Overall there was nothing exciting about the trip. We fail to understand why instead of it being a 28 hours journey no pantry is there in the train.
We had booked in 3 AC class. It was a good train. It takes about 3 hours to reach Allahabad. The toilets were clean, the train was on time, the seats were very good. As it was a 3 hrs. journey and we had had our lunch so we took a nap on the train. We had a good journey without any disturbances.
