If you are travelling this train from madgaon then try to capture the window seat if u have in your reservation
From Madgaon Jn to Londa Jn you got a great views of Western Ghat which is still untouched.
From Kulem to Londa Jn you didn't get any roadway or any village near to railway lines.
There are only greenery and greenery only. And
do not forget Dudh Sagar waterfalls.
Prefer to do this travel in rainy season!!!!!

The other side of Madgaon Jn (pf 3) is not so good. Ramps are provided but at start there are 2-3 steps over there. I didn't get any thing why they have provided steps over there
On station PF 1 you will get hotel. In hotel veg and non veg sections are different
If you are non drinker and train have some time to come or delayed and u want to eat something then come on PF 1. Don't go outside hotels.

Jan 15 2017 (11:00)   Tech for communication between trains on track

The Mumbai Railway Vikas Corporation (MRVC) will soon carry out a study before commissioning an advanced signalling technology on the suburban corridor. The technology--communication -based train control system-can help improve safety and frequency of train services.
Though this system was recommended by Niti Aayog, the Centre's advisory body before granting approval for the third phase of the Mumbai Urban Transport Project, it did not feature in the list of projects to be executed.
An MRVC official said that it was because the railway board wanted a comprehensive study of system to be done
out before it could be implemented on the suburban corridor.
The control system is an expensive project which will require an investment of around Rs 4,000 crore if implemented on the Western Railway , Central Railway and the Harbour lines.
Mumbai suburban system has fixed block signals which ensure fair distance between trains running on single track. The suburban track is divided into several blocks called signalling ter ritory . As the trains move from one signalling block to the next, the previous block will show the red signal and those before that a yellow, double yellow or green light. This separation of distance prevents trains from running at full potential, restricting the number of services.
In the new system, there is constant communication through digital technology which allows trains to maintain minimum distance between trains, thus allowing better speed and more services.
The MRVC official said that this system has been successfully introduced in Sao Paulo and Copenhegan."So, implementing the system in Mumbai should not be impossible," said the official.
MRVC may go for phasewise execution of the system by first implementing it on the Harbour line corridor. If the cab signalling technology is introduced, the frequency of trains will come down from four minutes per train to two minutes.
"This will improve punctuality and will also lead to less overcrowding on the Harbour line corridor which is witnessing a huge rush due to increase in population in Navi Mumbai," said a railway source.

Why IR in Pune division not updating signal system from block to automatic block system. Daily many trains get delayed by 10-15 min and the frequency of suburban also not improved yet.
Year by year the travellers from Pune to Talegaon increases by 10-20% and the frequency from 4-5 years is same.
If automatic block system is in working then definitely it is possible to increase local frequency
thing is that at SVJR KK CCH TGN and malavali if IR Pune division make some arrangement like platform for main Line then it will definitely reduce time travel in between Pune to Lonavla by 10-15 min.
If it happens within 1 hr and 5 min any one can reach Pune Lonavla by local!
