Although being a crawler, this train is easily the most important train from West Bengal to the north-east. The train is quite prioritized on its route. Kamrup Express being late is a rare phenomenon, although seen sometimes in the winter season. The train is ISO rated, but none of those standards are seen in the non-AC classes. The AC coaches are also not the best maintained coaches, but get the job done. The bedsheets, pillows and blanket provided are pretty clean. Charging sockets are seen in all AC coaches, but none of the non-AC coaches in which I have travelled had Charging sockets. The train has many stoppages en-route, hence many general and daily travellers get into the Sleeper class coaches in this train, hence long distance travellers should opt the AC classes. This is the only daily train from Howrah to beyond Guwahati and towards Dibrugarh, hence remains full throughout...
the year. Pantry is on the better side. I have not seen the pantry staff overcharging the people yet in this train. Snacks and fast food provided from the pantry are excellent. Last time I travelled a month ago in AC 3-Tier, the attendant told me that the OBHS facilites had been removed from this train, due to which the cleanliness standards have also degraded in the train, which can be one of the negative aspects for the passengers, especially the long distance travellers.

Aug 18 (22:35)   12127/Mumbai CSMT - Pune Intercity SF Express

So i got a chance again to travel on my favourite train the 12127 Intercity express to pune.Add to icing on the cake is that it got LHB!
So here are my reviews
Punctuality:-By far the average delay of this train is 10-15 mins,which is acceptable.And gets a superb priority throughout the route.The only problem is between Thane to Kalyan as many a times this train gets trolled by 15017 Ksshi express due to x-over.Therrafter Intercity runs like a "King" in Kalyan-Karjat and Lonavala-Pune.
i should day Pune division has maintained this train in a very good condition. Toilet was well maintained too.
Comfort:-Many people have complained that LHB non ac chair cars are giving their back a pain! So it would be good option to opt Ac chair car.Same comfort as that of Shatabdis.
Avability:-Just like other trains, purchase the ticket well in advance if travelling on weekends/festival season.Reason being is many people opt this train first for travelling,and the Ac cc in this train gets booked quickly.
Railfanning:-Please opt for General coach.Daily passengers have a "Gundagiri" type on this train as if they own!
Else take deccan.Deccan takes a hell lot of time but good for railfanning.
Any point is Missing/WRONG? please let me know!
