I traveled in sleeper of this train. All the travel tips are regarding that class only.

1.Very good train in terms of speed, punctuality, Cleanliness. Best train for sleeper class. 19 hour journey in sleeper is not much tough compared to other trains. Very less stoppage.
2.Veg Thali available for 120rs. 1 Paneer Dish, 1 Sabzi, 1 Dal, 1 Rice and 2 Chapati

with Pickle. Taste good for the price.
3.Veg Biryani and EGG Biryani available for 60/90 Per Piece.
4.Morning breakfast Bread Omelet available 50Rs.
5.Carry your own food if you want good taste. Food provided from pantry is average in taste.
6.Toilets were clean and train was also clean.
7.Max coaches are old 92-95 made only few are new 08-09 made still train is comfortable.
8.Coaches shake at high speed.
9.All the coaches do not have charging point at bay, only few of them have. S7 have charging at bay AFAIK. (Choose this coach if you are booking from IRCTC)
10.Very good Railfanning.

Best train after RAJ and DURONTO in terms of speed.
Timings are a bit odd
As stops are less,tickets easily available.
Pantry is also decent
Bullet between NIZAMUDDIN-KOTA and VADODARA-BORIVALI

But I still think travel time can be reduced after introducing lhb coaches. With only Kota, Vadodara and Borivali stops.
