Kashi Express numbered as 15017/15018 is a regular mail/express train of Indian Railways, running between Lokmanya Tilak Terminus, Mumbai, the capital city of Maharashtra, and Gorakhpur Junction, the prominent city of Uttar Pradesh.


Coach composition

The train generally consists of a total of 22 coaches as follows:

  • 1 AC II tier
  • 1 AC III tier
  • 12 sleeper class
  • 6 unreserved
  • 2 unreserved cum luggage/brake van
  • Loco reversal: Allahabad Junction
  • Locomotion

    As Central Railways has completed its DC-AC conversion on 12 February 2014, a Bhusaval or Itarsi based WAP-4 hauls the train from Lokmanya Tilak Terminus to Itarsi after which an Itarsi-based WDM-3A/3D hauls the train for the remainder of its journey until Gorakhpur.

    Before 12 February 2014, this train was hauled by a Kalyan-based WCAM 3 locomotive between LTT and Igatpuri as the route was DC electrified.
