Book ticket even if it shows high waiting list .
Nearly 800 seats are reserved for jhansi quota out of which hardly 100 fill up rest are all allocated to intermediate stations.
Or better still try current reservation for this train you will always get.

Wrong! only 100😅😅😅😅 this rating is too overcalculated. out of 1400 seats 600-700 filled at Jhansi Rest at Gwalior Agra that the reason we seating WL in this train now. that too doesnt get confirm. I know the tip is bit older, but now people should be aware of new glances also.
Same in case with CC.

You do get onboard catering in this train, though the options are limited. The best train to reach mathura,agra or gwalior from delhi- since gatimaan is very expensive.

I traveleld from GWL to NZM on 13th June 2016.
Train is delayed at GWL by almost 1 1/2 hrs. The compartments are very bad and are over crowded. Running is pathetic. Reached NZM only by 00:30 hrs on 14th June.
It is not at all rcomended to travel with family.
