This train is most bakwas long distance train I have traveled in terms basic amenities.
No Chargeing Points Avilable in S1-S2-S3 other Coaches I don't know.
Seats are in bad Dirty, Disreputable conditions.

Cleanines

not done by OBHS staff
In Dinner I take Egg thali which Changed RS 160 by PC

Overall this train is not good for Sleeper long distance travellers as I feel in My Journey From Bhusaval to Howrah

Even after LHB it's maintenance won't be improved as LTT coaching depot's maintenance is pathetic & I too share Mr.Rahul's point of view.

Words cannot describe the excellent service this train provides to its travellers.
Food - Pretty tasty food, packed in an hygienic manner (as per IR standards). But above all the food provided is wholesome. Non Veg Lunch in AC 2 Tier included the following :
Chicken Curry (Tasty gravy and 2 big pieces of chicken), Aloo Curry, Dal (Again, found it pretty nice) Rice, Paranthas, Pickle and Curd.
Had
...
more...
Bread butter and both cutlets and omelettes for breakfast and they were of good quality as well.
Train Run - Experienced an awesome run from Howrah to Durg. The train arrived almost each station 2-3 minutes early, thanks to decent controlling.
Coach - My coach was A1 which was a 2004 made, freshly POHed coach with one charging point in the coop and one for the side
Cleanliness - Very clean indeed ! Maintenance was superb
My rating : 4.5/5
The name Super Deluxe suits it very well indeed !!
Getting reservations in AC Classes is easier for 12101/12102/12151/12152 due to 9 AC Coaches !!

Charging sockets were present in Some SL coaches (In my journey, S3-S4-S5-S6-S7-S8 coaches) had Charging sockets near every seat. Rest all SL coaches had two charging sockets each near the Door.
But do keep in mind, the charging sockets near the seats were of 500mA rating. So do check out before using your Mobile charger.
Many people were suffering problem due to Higher Ampere Rating of their Mobile Chargers. And using laptop charger in these sockets is not possible.

One of the good Pantry car present.
Catering is done by Meals On Wheels.

One of the best maintained trains on this route. I would say the BEST train in terms of cleanliness.
OBHS does a brilliant job. While departing at night from LTT, it starts with a neat and clean rake.
Next day morning itself OBHS starts doing its job and tries their best to keep the coaches clean.
Biggest thing is they don't even

ask for any "Bakhshish" in end. You can personally ask them for individual cleanliness problem or pest problem.
They will help.
Personally experienced while traveling in SL class from LTT to HWH.

This train has an unscheduled halt at Thane over platform no : 08 for duration of 01 minute, train will crawl all the way from Parsik tunnel onwards. (even if there's green/amber signal given, then too it will halt, so never panic to deboard even from slowly crawling train).
Timing is around : 07:00 Hrs
I'd alighted here 4-5 times, you may too alight as deboarding at Lokmanya Tilak Terminus (LTT) & boarding a local train from Tilaknagar in peak hours will be a hard thing, that too with luggages!
Thanks.

Quick guide for Kodaikanal bound tourists from MDU.
1) Exit from the station. Walk ahead. Take a right turn.
2) Walk to the traffic signal to reach Periyar bus-stand.
3) Take a local bus to Arapalayam bus stand. Bus#48 is one of them. It'd take 15 minutes and Rs.9/- in the bus.
4)
...
more...
From Arapalayam bus stand, take the bus to Kodaikanal, it'd take 3.5-4 hrs and Rs. 62/- for the journey.
5) In return, the last direct bus to MDU from Kodaikanal is at around 17:15. So DO NOT plan a departure later than that.
6) In case you get late, you can get a Dindigul bound bus to Batlagundu (from where you can change for MDU) but even that service isn't available after 19:30.

Best train for last minute reservations in AC classes in the ever jam packed Mumbai Kolkata section. Food is good (As per IR standards) and the OBHS Staff keep the train neat and Clean... Does take a longer, slower route but maintains punctuality and 60 kmph average is pretty good.. Should be one's go to train in this section for reservations before attempting for Tatkal reservations
