It was good, I and one of my friend stayed in the Railway Restroom. It was good. We rested there until 5 am. I was there for my SSB interview. It was a good journey but the train was three hour late. So it was a little bit boring. Railway Station was good. Allahabad is a religious pilgrimage center for Hindu.
I expected the train to be on time but it came too late. That's I'm giving them average ratings here. I always prefer this train because as I know that this is always on time or a clean train. I mean that there is good staff so I booked this train always.
Never go with this train, we went in a/c compartment but the compartment was like general compartment. Very much noisy. Food was very bad, toilets not cleaned. No charger connection on side lower berth. Compartment not well cleaned. General ticket passenger are sitting in a/c compartment.
The train was good and took around 33 hours to reach Puri from New Delhi. I was unable to get tickets in 3rd AC. It was a very long waiting list in this train. No on-board cleaning staff. Pantry car facility was available but food quality was not good and mineral water sold by them was of very poor quality.
I had to travel from Kanpur to Delhi so I bough tatkal tickets of Purushottam Express. By default by name 1st letter was wrong thus I faced a lot of problem. There are many problems if we are travelling in Indian Railways. The train reached the destination two hours late.
Purushottam express is best train to travel from Jamshedpur to Puri. It will maintain the time and food is good, toilet is clean. I traveled in 2nd AC. But the bedding is not clean. Better to avail lower or upper berth instead of side lower or upper. The space of side lower and upper is much shorter.
