This train is one of the best train to Howrah.Honestly saying,opt this train instead of jnaneswari if having ample time.
I travelled recently on 12151 from Lokmanya Tilak terminus to howrah.Date 18/10/17.It arrived LTT late by 60 mins and departed at 9.40 pm,but still managed to arrived Howrah 8.20 am!!!.Food is not up to the mark,but overall a speedy journey though,overtaking the ontime 12809 mail at Jalgaon,Gondwana express near Bilaspur shows the priority.For railfanning too it's a good train.
Details about my journey on this train will be uploaded soon :)

Be Aware Of Pantry Staff Of This Train. They Are Literally Fraud Elements. Yesterday I Caught Them Red Handed Selling Coffee At ₹25/- & Tea At ₹15/- . I Demanded For The “Price Chart” Which They Didn’t Show Me Till Now. Avoid Buying From Them As Much You Can

Non AC Dormitory= 1 Room with 4 Beds =Charges per bed 120/- for 24 hrs. or part thereof.
Boarding point:-Mumbai csmt
Destination:-Guntakal junction
I travelled on this train recently i.e on 29th may 2018.The train is well maintained by CR but the condition of sleeper is worst.Local people enroute uses this train.And top of that even 3rd ac tiers arent spared.Post wadi junction,when the 3rd ac seats were vacant,few people boarded the 3rd ac with having "First class" tickets.They use this as their destination after paying tte a few bucks.But for safety purpose opt Ac still.
Food:-Food quality has been slightly improved but not much.You will get Veg as non veg food.I opted for non veg food which cost me about 150 rupees.
Cleanliness:-Like always,Ac maintaince is very good as compared to Sleeper.However toilet is choked up by the time train reaches Solapur.At solapur station,OBHS cleans the toilet.
Punctuality:-Also known as the "Slack mail".Most of the time train gets delayed by 1 to sometimes even 2 hours till wadi.From wadi it covers some of the time and ultimately reaches Guntakal ontime or a delay of 20-35 mins.
Railfanning:-A great train.Must say it gets looped for every train(Not for pass/demu though).Try not to miss the brutal overtake by "12025" pune Secunderabad shatabdi express.Normally it gets ot before kurduvadi.
Availability:-Despite slowest train to Chennai, train is having good demand.So try to book least 2 months advance.
Any point is missing/wrong or u wanna add? Pls let me know :)
