This train started from Yeshwanthpur (Bangalore) at 19:30 hrs sharply. The starting time of the train is very convenient but reaching hubli at 03:30 am is little uncomfortable. But one advantage is get some two hours sleep in the hotel before starting the days work. I travelled in 2 AC and the bogy is quiet clean. One disadvantage is pantry is not available.
Another good point to mention is newly started telephone booking by railways. The day I travelled, in the afternoon I called 139 helpline numbers and luckily seat was available and called, through IVR system ticket has been booked. This is the new thing that happened.
