Hi, could anyone tell me why all south bound trains, including Udyan express, have diesel locos between Mumbai and Pune, when electrification is available?
Diesel doesn't come anywhere close to electric as far as riding comfort and speed is concerned. Plus, I would assume there are environmental considerations with the ghats.
I see north-bound trains running on electric locos though. Is there a reason?

1:- to avoid loco change at Pune.
2:- Diesel's are better n alternative for such trains.
3:- 190 km with and Diesel, not an issue. once the rest of section is energized with Electric, Diesel wil vanquish.

Re# 935240-2            Tags   Past Edits
The issue is that beyond Pune there is no electrification. So there is no point in doing a loco change after 150 kms at Pune for trains heading south. Many trains have diesel locos in order to save time and operational constraints. Eg- Many times uttar sampark kranti and jammu rajdhani have diesel locos though route uptill jallandhar is electrified. Even Pooja exp from Ajmer to Jammu has deisel loco inspite more than half its route being electrified.

As I mentioned, I see north-bound trains running on electric. They must be changing at Igatpuri or Manmad too right? So whats wrong in changing at Pune?

LTT-SBC has also pretty good chance...Else one option open for you book a new ticket from LTT-HSRA(Hosur) its RAC4 / RAC 4.You can get down at SBC. You need to pay extra Rs.50/- only for the new ticket.

I am still at RAC 7. Do RAC passengers get any bedding in AC coach or do I have to carry my own bed sheet or something? Do they have extra blankets etc in Udyan usually?

This news is from Local newspaper of Solapur.
They got this news from Central Railway Solapur Division ,currently this division is maintaining rake of Udyan/Siddheshwar Express.
As this news is came from Gulbarga, so I think it is confirmed.

Oh ok. What is ae1? And the AC 2-tier and AC 3-tier coaches are not together? There seems to be some big confusion about this train. Looks like the new CR rakes have not been arranged properly

That is true. Rakes not arranged. The attendent in the coach was telling that they have coupled 2-3 coaches from different trains and it is moved under solapur division for maintenance. Sucks big time. Returned by 11013 this is very good.
