Good train for GIMB Passengers to NGP/R/SBP/BBS.
1.Problems-
A. Is a weekly train with OK timings at Ahemdabad.
B.Tickets for Gandhidham/Vadodara/Surat passengers to Nagpur/Raipur/Sambalpur / Bhubaneshwar are NOT easily avaliable. Book them 4 month in advance.
C.Pantry
...
more...
Car not avaliable (However E-Catering avaliable at Nandurbar and Sambalpur).
D.Bad timings at Raipur (After Speedup in next TAAG it may be speeded up to reach Raipur by 0100 HRS)
2.Advantages-
A. Fastest connection between Surat-Bhubaneshwar
B.Cleanliness is just superb and Coaches are also newly made.
C.Rush of unreserved passengers is less in SL.
D.In return direction it covers a good amount of delay. (However 12993 reaches its destination delayed by 1.5 HRS).
3.Tips-
A.Carry your own food as on board vendors are also less
B. Book tickets 4 months in advance as RAC Clarence is also difficult in this train (Personal Experience)
C. Passengers could use E-Catering(served at Nandurbar)
D. Reaches its destination (as 12993) with a delay of 1.5 HRS. Return train is little bit good and a good delay coverer.
Thank you.

A good connectivity for GIMB Passengers to BAM/CAP/PVP/BALU/VZM
A.Problems--
1. Huge slacks given in some sections (especially SIOB-VG and WR-NGP).
2. Is a weekly train with OK timings at Ahemdabad.
3. Ticket availability is

tougher than 12993 as it has good timings at almost all major stations in Up/down direction.
B. Advantages-
1. Cleanliness and punctuality are top class. In particular cleanliness has improved by a thousand times after conversion to SF.
2. If travelling from BRC/ST to BAM/CAP/PVP/BALU/VZM then this train should be the first preference.
3. Coaches are newly made (2A is 2007 made)
4. E-Catering avaliable.
5. Punctuality is superb. Never runs late by more than 30 mins
C.tips--
1. Opt this train from BRC/ST to PVP/BAM/CAP/BALU/VZM as I have found less cleanliness in 12843 Ahemdabad-Puri SF Express
2. If travelling to NGP/R then book tickets only in 12993 as this train is meant for GIMB/ADI/BRC/ST passengers to BAM/CAP/PVP etc.
3. Book tickets in ARP as ticket availability is too tough (especially from BRC/ST).
Thankyou
