I chose Malwa Express because from here it is the only train which take less time than others it runs from Indore to Jammu and its approx distance from Ujjain is 1461 km and Malwa usually takes 24-26 hours from Ujjain.
Journey was good as always, I usually book ac three tier but due to winters this time we travel in S11 i.e. Sleeper class but in sleeper also the co-passengers were very good and specially what I like is food for the fist time in Indian Railways.
The toilets were not so clean but its okay in India it happens, rest everything was good water, food, snacks etc.
We had to wait for 2.30 hours for the train to reach Khanna Station. The arrival time was at 10 am but it came at 12:31 pm. When we reached Jammu we were four hours late and it was pathetic. It was a slow train and we felt sick and donít want to travel again by this train.
I went to Jammu for the first time last year by train and it was quite exciting for me to go there. I went there for Maa Vashno dham with my parents. Travelling by train is time taking but its affordable and thus preferred by many. But train lunch was not so good.
Near about to August 2013 I had made the plan to spend my holidays. I chose Bhopal the capital city of Madhya Pradesh. I planned to reserve the seat for train through internet and trains with their fare and facilities I chose Malva Superfast Express as the fare was average and also the speed of the train was good. Train seats were in good condition and it passes through famous places like Mathura, Agra, Gwalior and many other interesting places.
The crowd at the stations was too much and there was no proper management for that, the food items selling at the platforms were open. The train was overcrowded due to single train on the route up to Jammutawi. There should be more trains on the route. The train reached too late at the station, this should be seen by responsible person and I heard that this train will be never on time.
A good train, reservations were easily available, generally train is on the time and you will not have to wait for long. Got no problems in train, and security services were good. If you don't want any complexity in your travel, then its advisable to reserve your seats as early as possible.
