If you miss this train at Indore, don't panic. Catch 12962 Avantika departing at 16:25. You will be able to catch Indore NZM intercity at Nagda, without any hassles... In fact you need not climb stairs as well, on one side of platform is Avantika and other side is this train... (Just pray that TTE donot allot your berth to someone else. Otherwise try to get in touch with TTE via some one in Ujjain, Dewas ...

Re# 1019675-6            Tags   Past Edits
1. Why or how often would passengers miss the train, after long advance planning?
There can be any reason like stuck in traffic jam... Or coming from near by village to Indore to catch train and bus broke down... Or plans to travel in general class... My relatives have missed trains from Ratlam due to bad roads to reach ratlam due to heavy rains leading to potholes.
2. Did it happen to you, and did you know of this tip beforehand, or did you just try it out?
In
...
more...
recent months I travelled twice from Indore in Avantika (latest one being this Sunday night) and always reached station before departure of INDB NZM Intercity. But on both occasions when I reached Nagda, I saw that train standing... On reaching office yesterday I just found that the timings are in such a way that this can become a tip.
3. Did you get your allotted berth in the missed train at Nagda?
Never travelled in INDB NZM Intercity.

Option 1: Take train till Ahmedabad and Bus (Volvo/Rajasthan Roadways) from der.
Option 2: Try 12961 Avantika till Ratlam; Catch 19653 from Ratlam for Chittorgarh; From Chittorgarh go to Udaipur by Bus/Train
Option 3: Check 22901 in sleeper till Ratlam, in case you get ticket, take waiting for Ratlam to Udaipur.

You may get taxi easily but at a Price, since Abu is a tourist destination and cartel works outside station. Dont know about buses. Check out rsrtc.gov.in for Raj Roadways bus details.

If you are trying a ticket in this train and not able to get. Try following option. Get a ticket in Avadh Express, which runs just before it and generally TTE are able to accomodate you in Avadh by charging differential fare between UR and SL. Get down at Dahod. At Dahod, on the same platform on which you get down from Avadh, after few minutes comes 22901. So you can have nice sleep in avadh and then spend rest of day journey in 22901. I have tried it myself once.

If you see route, both trains run back to back from BDTS till Dahod. I have always observed that no overtaking happens before Ratlam. Avadh first reaches Ratlam followed by 22901. At times both meet at Ratlam Platform 5 and Platform 6 and then moves for their respective destinations. Avadh towards Nagda and 22901 towards Mandsaur.

its a chain tip , and it should be discussed in chain category ,,

buffer time less is also a big factor

When I travelled recently in 22901, we reached Ratlam and 19037 arrived on the adjacent platform and our train left from Ratlam. Also, at Dahod and in between, I did not see 22901 overtaking 19037

If you are travelling with luggage with wheels at Ratlam Station you have Ramps on all broad gauge platforms to ensure hassle free travel.
On Platform 4 it is in left of main entrance near luggage office. On platform 5 and 6 when you come from Mumbai side, ramp is almost near to loco stoppage. On newly made Platform 7, it is in middle. This ramps are connected to same foot over bridge, so you need not pick up luggage to enter or exit the station.

1. If you are travelling towards Indore from Mubai and finding Avantika waitlisted, then just try using this train. Book ticket from KJT (Karjat) with boarding at Vasai Road. Generally, this train is RAC when Avantika is waitlisted. When heavily waitlisted both are so...
2. Now if you stay towards Mumbai Central from Vasai Road, then reaching Vasai Road could be a challenge in evening peak hours.
Here comes real tip: Reach Borivali Platform 2 before 6:37. A local will come from Virar side and it will become 6:53 slow for Vasai
...
more...
Road. Get in with your luggage and get down at Vasai Road, as it is last station. One more problem you will face at Vasai Road is to walk between large crowd with luggage on squeezed platform to reach foot over bridge to reach desired platform of Pune Indore.

the tip is excellent, however catching the 18:53 to BSR isn't easy as 2 locals from CCG terminate at BVI at 18:46 and 18:52 respectively. Many people who travel further north use the BVI local rather than VR/BSR local for lower crowds and then change over here.

I think Borivali stop is a convenient stop for people from Mumbai, specially those residing in Suburban areas. It should not be cancelled.
I dont think there is any proposal as well to delete the stoppage.

Durontos skip it. Rather only when Durontos come to Mumbai they should stop at Borivali. While leaving they may skip.
