Sharing my personal experience about this train :
I travelled from Pune-Solapur and back from Solapur-Pune on 13/9/2014. The LHB coaches were very well maintained. The toilets were clean too.
The train started bang on time at 05.50am from Pune and with a couple of stoppages for crossings, it reached Solapur only 5-10 minutes late than the scheduled arrival time. We were first served with Tea/ Coffee and Breakfast later which included Veg cutlets, Bread slices, butter sachets, etc. The food quality was good.
In
...
more...
the return journey, 12026 reached Solapur at around 19.50 (15 minutes late) and departed at 20.00pm. The return journey was almost a non-stop journey with only a single stop for crossing that too just before Daund. The train reached Pune at sharp 11.15pm. Regarding the food served, we were first welcomed with Tomato Soup and Bread Sticks. Later, dinner was served which included 3 Rotis, Mutter Paneer, Dal, Rice, Curd, Pickle, Gulab Jamun. I would like to mention that quality of the dinner was really nice. I have travelled multiple times in this train and the food was terrible back then. But, after travelling yesterday, I can say that this is a HUGE IMPROVEMENT.
Overall it was a nice experience with the only Shatabdi of Pune.
Hope this helps to people who wish to opt for this train for their travel.

Indiarailinfo is now forcing me to download a Firefox App to be able to get fare/seat availability information. The app is very poorly designed and occupies a whole lot of browser real estate. But disabling the app means I can no longer check fare/availability.
I do not think IndiaRailInfo should force its users to download and use its app. Atleast the app should be minimally invasive - read, should hide in a corner and be invoked when needed - if it is compulsory to install the app.
Thoughts of other users are

Also why is it that the window for downloading extension says v4.70 and chrome shows v4.71 ? Can you please see if you get v4.71 after clicking "Update Extensions" in GC.

By moderator Sir:
1. Pick a train.
2. Go to its individual train page on IRI, and see if you get its availability.
3. If not, then go directly to the official site and type in the exact same train, station, date, etc., and see if you are able to check availability directly.
There

is an issue, only if you are able to see the availability, etc. directly from the official site, but not through the Chrome app.
As remarked before, the official site itself is down sometimes, or unavailable to your area. Once again, there is an issue only if you ARE able to see directly on the official site, but are NOT able to see it thru the Chrome app.

Yes, I am able to see availability through official site but not through the Chrome app.So there is definitely an issue with the app.
I have already uninstalled and reinstalled the app, cleared all browser history but nothing is working.
Also another thing....why my chrome app shows v4.71 whereas the site says "...Download v4.70..." ?

Subject : App for IE and Firefox
Dear Sir,
I see that an app has already been designed for Firefox which looks like a toolbar.Now that it has
...
more...
been designed, I don't expect any changes to it but since the app has not been yet designed for IE, I would recommend some suggesions.
1) The app should be of Google Chrome style. i.e. directly search trains from station A to B and get availability.
2)FF toolbar only has box for PNR status....IE app should have that for getting availability status also.
3)It should be able to hide itself and still function in background...and not occupying space like a whole toolbar.
I hope that you will consider my suggestions.
Thank you,
Shridhar.
P.S. More suggestions are welcome but do not suggest impracticable things.

Yes, I can understand your sentiments, Shridhar. The only time I travelled in this sector was way back in the 90s from Pune to Mumbai, by that short-lived upstart Pune-Mumbai Shatabdi Express. It is my misfortune not to have had an opportunity to savour the aura of a journey by the Deccan Queen Express, sorry Deccan Queen :)

Also it would travel via pune which is a diesel track pune onwards.
Hence there is no way it would be hauled by a WAP-7.
Please post blogs sensibly.......saying whatever comes to your mind is not going to work here.

Theoretically, 9 hrs is is enough to cover this much distance, but practically it is not possible.There are number of reasons for that.
1.This train covers most of its journey on single line diesel track, so it has to wait number of times for crossing.
2.Locomotive change is needed at Pune.Hence some time goes here also.
3.Even though it is non stop, technical stoppages
...

are there for every duronto for loco. change, crew change, loading food, etc.
Hence, as compared to other trains on this route which take a minimum of 13.35 hrs, this train would take 12 hrs.
AND.....source of my info. is Trains At A Glance 2010-11.
