Jan Shatabdis are the worst trains in IR....always overcrowded.... 12051 is only good, becoz of its speed....PNVL-RN just 4 hours....
But their plus point is speed & punctuality...
sir , how much rush and general ticket fare in this train
As its janshatabdi no genral tkt available and it always run full you have to book atlast one month prior in off season and in may holi and december end you have ro book on arp and in ganpati it reaces wl above 300 within minutes
12051 has a Vistadome coach. The Vistadome coach has an observation area on one side where one can stand and watch the view. In 12051 the Vistadome coach is the last coach and therefore there is clear view of the rail track and the scenery from the observation area. However, in 12052 the vistadome coach is immediately after the loco therefore the observation area does not offer any view other than the back of the loco. Therefore, if you decide to travel by the Vistadome coach, it makes sense to book by 12051 rather than 12052
when they are taking money from passengers, they should attach it at the back in other journey also. Anyways... we know now. Thank You!
As it is, the JS has to have a quick turn around time at Madgaon to return to Dadar on time at night. Just imagine, how much time the shunting will take. The coach not only has to be taken to the back of the train but has to be REVERSED in direction AFAIK the observation area is only on one side of the coach. Try and imagine the situation, and I am sure you will understand the complication.
I think this can be achieved only if a turntable like the one in the video is available at MAO. I doubt it is available at MAO
The observation area is only on 1 side.Thank you.BTW you wanted to travel by Vistadome if I am not wrong?
Yeah, will probably try it out in March or April. will travel from Karmali to Dadar by Tejas and return by JS Vistadome!. Lets see whether I can manage to make my dream into reality! :)
Wish you luck.Please take out time for Vista and Tejas too.My dream is to travel by LHB 2S so will go to Secunderabad and avail 12796 to BZA.In April only.
thank you. you too have a good lhb 2S experience. Are there any major differences between LHB and ICf 2S coaches?
Seat are like JS in LHB .In ICF they are like a bench.And its just a wish.
This train is the fastest and best day train to travel between Dadar n Madgaon at a relatively cheaper fare.
Offers Sitting accommodation in AC n Non AC viz 2S n CC
Correction its not one of the fastest. It is the fastest train on KR between Dadar and Madgaon..
yes it is 'The fastest' train from DDR to MADG covering almost 665 KM in almost 9 Hr. The only problem is that in tunnels it generates a lot of smoke and people sometime faces problems.
Now the fastest train is Tejas express
This smoke problem would be a universal one na or is there something about this js
But dude Tejas express is a fully air conditioned train so how do you expect people to experience smoke problems?
By universal I meant all mail express except raj and tejas which are premium trains
it isnt necessary that all Air conditioned trains are premium.ex-Coimbatore-Bikaner/Bikaner-Coimbatore AC Express.
Are yaar topic yeha non ac ka chal raha hai tum kyu ac ke peeche pade ho. Sabko pata hai ki ac coaches me smoke problem nahi hota. Why are you repeatedly diverting let him answer what he wants to say about this js
I traveled by this train on 19.8.2015, in a Second Sitting Coach No D4. I noticed that the adjoining Coach No D5 was better with broader seats and better ventilation. The D4 coach is very old and is very uncomfortable to sit or travel. The windows have a very small opening, restricting the air circulation, specially when the train travels through the viaducts which are more than 20 along the route and the diesel engine fumes and smoke smell remains in the coach for a long time and its very uncomfortable to breath, due to lack of proper ventilation in the compartment.
This is also true for all trains on this route in non-air conditioned coaches. The railways need to look
the coaches and rakes are shuffled very often so chances are there might be newer coaches.
