Aurangabad has retiring room/ dormitory facilities. u can book them online also. However, plz check conditions of room before booking, reviews are not good! There are many budget hotels available around AWB station.
Aurangabad has AC waiting room/Executive lounge facility.
As per last news, food plaza is not working. Plz check!

Parli is category B station. Waiting hall is available. Stn building is also small. Better to opt for budget hotels in the town near Vaijanath temple!

Aurangabad- Chalisgaon new BG line gets boost from the central government.
Central govt. today cleared one of the biggest hurdle in Aurangabad-Dhule NH52 4-lane project and Aurangabad-Chalisgaon new BG line. In a meeting held in the presence of union minister Nitin gadakari with Transport Ministry officials, NHAI officials, and Indian Railway officials, committee agreed
to increase the width and length of the Autram Ghat tunnel near Kannad on Aurangabad-Dhule NH. Niting Gadakari also ordered to start the procedure for construction of dual purpose tunnel.
New dimensions of the tunnels are..
1. Length: 8.5 km
2. Width: 7meters.
3. height: 4.5 meters at entry, 9.5 meters inside
4. Two separate tunnels for UP and DOWN lanes which will include road as well as railway line (either line will be double in the tunnel section or provision will be made for second line so that no need to dig another tunnel for doubling work in future)
5. Total width of the combined system: 28 meters.
This line will provide direct connectivity between Aurangabad/Marathwda and Indore/Ujjain, Ajmer/Jaipur, Ahemadabad.

Worst Experience at Nanded Railway Station!!
Today, I got a worst experience at Nanded Railway Station. One of my relative is going to Pune, so I went to Station to drop him. He used to catch 17613/14 NED-PNVL Express. Now a days, this train is used to start late, due to platform congestion at Nanded. This train came at 6:30 PM on Platform No 3 and to my surprise hardly 2-3 coaches came on platform and rest rake was out of platform. Old people finds very difficult to board the train due to Railway Negligence. When I asked Railway Guard about this matter, he simply laughs, and said "Wo Bade Kutte Paisa Leke Dhanda Karte Hai, Mere Haath Main Kya Hai!!".
After, plenty of efforts, this train gets good slot, now, SCR is purposefully not maintaining this train. Even after extension to Panvel, this train still have 3 sleeper coach. Uploading you some pics of this train for your reference..

#suggestions #moderator I wish IRI could provide information regarding the platform orientation of major Railway station/Junctions like the one I have uploaded. The picture is of the orientation of platforms of Manmad Jn. I would like comments on it by the members.
