The best train ever for Mumbai-Bhopal-Mumbai. Very clean train and marvellous speed. Only drawback is that the train gets a little slow in between Itarsi & Bhopal. Otherwise the best train ever and could do with more reserved compartments. The train has an awesome average speed between IGP-ET. Not to mention there are enough food and tea-vendors with good quality tea and food to keep you occupied throughout the journey.
Pushpak train is best option to travel to Mumbai from Lucknow. It departure from Lucknow junction at 7:40 pm. and this train is always on time. Train has facility of good food, toilets are good. It will pass through several big stations like Kanpur, Jhansi, Bhopal, Itarsi etc.
The train I was travelling in was on time at both the stations. All the staffs of catering and attendant of AC were very polite. It adds to the enjoyment to the journey.
I was travelling in 2nd class AC and the seats were good in condition but there was some sort of problem in AC. But the engineers were too fast and they made it good in little while. I enjoyed a lot before Kalyan Station. As sightseeing near it were much charming and attractive.
Travelling by Pushpak Express was an awesome experience. Comfort was maintained throughout the journey. Train was at its correct time and maintained good constant speed. Transport service outside the station was very good. One can get an auto or taxi to go anywhere. Toilet was clean and food was also awesome. This journey inspired me lot so I would definitely go by this train. T.T was very friendly and his behavior was good. Bad social element was available i.e, gutka and cigarettes but TT restricted as much it could do.
