Going to HWH ?.Then have this train as your First preference , Tickets are not easily available as most of them prefer this train. The train is neat and clean and No overcrowding, not even a single WL/UR pax found in SL coaches(On the day I Travelled). Finish your dinner and board or get it packed , You won't get any dinner once you board the train. Speed and punctuality is excellent and it arrives HWH with minimal delay.

I think 12838 is the best train to travel from PURI-HWH. Shatabdi is also there but recently, it has degraded a lot. Plus the hassle of Dynamic fare makes it a pain. Another good train is PURI-HWH GR. However, the best train from Puri to Kolkata in my opinion is SDAH-PURI Duronto(by mentioning Kolkata, I am considering all the terminus stations).

Yes, But since Dynamic Pricing is there in Duronto I think this one will be More suitable.

I travelled 12838 on CTC-HWH yesterday. AC-2 Tier coaches were ancient (ICF with two windows per coupe), with door handles coming off and thick layer of dust on edges of seats, window rubber, etc. It was just about tolerable due to the short journey (6 hours to HWH).

One of the best train from Puri to Howrah and Howrah to Puri. Most of the time its run on time. Most passenger prefers for its on time early morning arrival (04.50 am) at Howrah. Neat & clean, paper wrapped bedding provided by ECoR in ac coaches. Permanent loco link is Santragachi #WAP4.

Traveled By Puri Express On 20th August With Parents. Though Our Coach HA1 Was An Old One But It Was Neatly Maintained. And Train Reached Puri Bang On Time. A Must Train If You Are Looking For A Night Train To Puri
