Pursotam Express is the best train and the timing are excellent to. The journey begins at Bokaro Station and continuous from Kharkpur, Bhadrak and lastly to Bhubneswar. The quality of the food is also awesome. The quality and the time which is maintained by the train is also good.
I started my journey from Balasore to Puri in Purushottam Super Fast Express. Like all Indian trains it arrived late. It was 3 hour late. Although it is a super-fast train but it didn't move like a super-fast train. Travellers should pick train No 22889 or 22877. We travelled in 3 tier A/c. It was good. Toilets were not clean though.
It's a very good train just go and have food and sleep in the train you will reach the destination in the morning as no time is wasted just as you sleep in the house just sleep in the train and you will reach there. Also the train experience is not like you are travelling as no one is going to disturb you and as its a night journey, the train is very neat and clean.
This train should be the No. 1 choice for drunker, smoker, tobacco edict and passengers without ticket or proper ticket. I travelled from KGP to Puri on 14th October, 2013 (actually on 15th midnight as the train was late by 4 hours) and returned on 18th October, 2013. I travelled with my family and promised not to travel again in this train ever after. Only saw one TTE while from KGP. No RPF at all in my journey. Compartments were full of dust and garbage. Toilet was full of problems. And reserved compartments were filled with unreserved passengers. Some of them were fully drunk. Two person started smoking. It was the most horrible journey of my life that I ever had. I recommend not to travel by this train ever. There were mosquito which helps you not to sleep the whole night. To sleep at night you have to use mosquito coil as I did
Travelling experience in this train was not good at all. First of all the train was quite late and then the attendant of the coach was not there. After waiting for 15 to 20 minutes, came the attendant, bed roll was not given in our berths. Then he gave the bed rolls which was untidy and then few more minutes passed by waiting for fresh bed roll and bathrooms were also very dirty but the good thing was that it reached Puri on time.
