Waiting room must be available I guess. But, it should be ONLY for USE ALL CLASS & no particular waiting room like for SL, AC, UPPER CLASS should be there.

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!

Jan 27 2017 (09:11)   Bangalore Railway Division comes out with a wishlist for Centre

BENGALURU: With less than a week to go for the first Railway budget in 92 years to be merged with the General Budget, the Bangalore Railway Division has sent across its wishlist to the Centre for inclusion in the Pink Book (the official register of the Indian Railways).
Chief among the demands are a train connecting Hubballi with Mysuru via Bengaluru, three doubling projects and increased allocation for passenger amenities.
Speaking to Express on the doubling projects, Ashok Gupta, Chief Administrative Officer, Constructions, South Western Railway, said, “The doubling of the

existing line between Yeshwantpur and Baiyappanahalli via Hebbal will help us run more trains along this busy stretch. The 22-km line will require funding of Rs 170 crore.”
Another doubling line between Baiyappanahalli and Hosur that will cost Rs 375 crore has also been requested.
“This will be a 48-km line and will immensely help passengers commuting between the two cities regularly,” Gupta added. A 41-km second line between Penukonda and Dharmavaram via Nagasundaram that will cost Rs 294 crore has also been sought, he said.
Sanjiv Agarwal, Divisional Railway Manager, Bengaluru Railway Division, said, “To decongest the packed Chamundi Express that leaves from Krantiveera Sangolli Rayanna (KSR) station in the evenings, we have requested a day train that would connect Hubballi to Mysuru via Bengaluru. It is expected to be sanctioned.”
When asked if any more new trains were sought, the DRM said, “It is not possible to run more trains as we have already reached a saturation point. Hence, we have not requested for more.”
The Division has also sought funding to upgrade Platform 5 and 6 of the Banaswadi station and carry on yard-related work. “The platforms are very small and this is posing a problem to trains coming from Kolar. We need Rs 11 crore for it but even if Rs 3 toRs 4 crore is released, we can begin work on it,” he said.
Agarwal also said that Bengaluru was hoping to get more funding to improve passenger amenities across its Division. “We received very less for it in the previous budget and could not carry out many improvements,” he added.
The South Western Railway Zone (Bengaluru, Hubballi and Mysuru Railway Divisions) as a whole received only Rs 33 crore for passenger amenities in the 2016-17 Railway Budget whereas, it had received nearly Rs 90 crore in the 2015-16 budget, pointed out a top railway official. “We are hoping for Rs 100 crore for the SWR Zone for passenger amenities alone so that Bengaluru gets at least Rs 30 to Rs 40 crore allocated out of it,” he said.
Asked about what tops the amenity, the official said KSR, Cantonment, Yeshwantpur and Krishnajapuram stations require digital passenger information boards.

SWR has really gone wrong in setting the TT of New UBL - SBC- MYS Express, It wont help UBL people in any sense, It will rather act as a new FAST PASSENGER...... Instead they could have gone with following TT : as BGM - SBC - MYS SF Express
BGM : 18:30
UBL : 21:30/45
SBC : 06:10/25
MYS
...
more...
: 09:30
I know, the TT between SBC and MYS would clash between SBC and MYS, but would give better patronage to the train between BGM and SBC when compared to a day train between this route with just 47 AVg..... where in a normal train has atleast 53 kmph avg....
NO proper plans are laid by SWR in BGM - SBC section to make it comfortable....
* Adding stops to 12725 and 16590, has make them miserable to travel.....
* A new SF is required to make it comfortable to travel.

Second train terminal to ease congestion at Mysuru station R. Krishna Kumar MYSURU:

station. The terminal has been proposed to come up at a cost of ₹65 crore at Kadakola.
The Kadakola terminal is close to Nanjangud and about 15.85 km from Mysuru, where the Railways has earmarked 55 acres of land – for laying new running lines, besides stabling tracks as well – so as to take the load off the existing Mysuru Railway Station.
At present, Mysuru station handles nearly 43 pairs of trains (including non-daily services). Of these, 24 pairs operate on the Mysuru-Bengaluru section. However, the city station has only three pit lines for primary maintenance of trains and for taking up secondary maintenance. Each exercise requires about 4 to 8 hours. With the existing pit lines fully slotted, new trains or services cannot be introduced without creating additional pit lines for maintenance. Owing to this, the development of Kadakola is perceived to be urgent.
This issue was also raised by Pratap Simha, MP, Mysuru, at a recent meeting with the General Manager of the South Western Railway. Sources said that the detailed plan for the Kadakola station was prepared and submitted to the Railway Ministry for final approval.
The proposed work at Kadakola includes laying of three running lines of 750 m, two high-level island platforms, 2 pit lines of 650 m, 2 stabling lines of 650 m, 1 shunting neck of 700 m in length access from all the running and non-running lines. There is also a proposal to have an inspection car siding line of 150 m and 2 maintenance lines – in addition to pit lines – of 120 m.
The key requirement is water supply for maintenance, staff and passengers but can be harnessed from the nearby Kabini. A new station building has also been proposed to accommodate the entire yard within the available railway land.
Sources say if the existing pit lines at the Mysuru station are shifted to Kadakola, space will be freed up to create three additional platforms at Mysuru and will suffice to handle a higher volume of traffic. Hence, Kadakola could be a maintenance yard with all passenger services originating from Mysuru in future.
City set to become a transportation hub
The development of Kadakola as the second terminus for Mysuru will turn it into a transportation hub as the Container Corporation of India (CONCOR) will commence its work on the development of an inland container yard there.
The KIADB has already handed over land to CONCOR which will invest ₹100 crore in the project. The new container yard will spread over 50 acres and will provide logistic solutions to export-oriented units in the Mysuru-Chamarjanagar-Mandya belt, while catering to Hassan and Chikkamagaluru.
× At present, the bulk of the finished products meant for exports, and the raw materials for their manufacture, are transported by road but the inland container yard will not only enable a smooth shift to rail, but provide a single window clearance with documentation facilities to complete the export procedure locally before being shipped to the ports.
