Is it possible to get into this train's general compartment from Arsikere till Pune? I have got luggage, so can't change once I get in. Will have to be stuck in the same general for good.
Or else, alight the train in Hubli and hop over to a bus. :(

Well, I missed the train with a WL-89 confirming at the last moment. I was thinking that the Solapur express that precedes it, leaves from SBC, whereas it leaves from YPR.
Without a Metro system functioning in Bangalore, it is hell to travel 25+ kms in rainy season, especially on a Friday evening!

Re# 755556-3            Tags   Past Edits
Sir u take any of train running bw banglore-marwar junction ,
the crowd will be always more only
sleeper class will be almost like general coach after crossing hubli and u just imagine about the general coach !!
The reason behid this is these trains are the toppest source of income for touts n they sell sleeper class ticket at min
2,000 and max 3500 during peak seasons which is worth 600 only !!
So if 4 passengers are tarveling then they will buy 2 tickets from touts and they will purchase 2 wl ticket n they will say ***CHALO ADJUSTMENT KARLENGE ***
In almost of all PRS located in banglore and enroute stations the first 2-3 applications will be for these trains only !!

Of late, this train gets crowded owing to the reason that it overtakes SBC-ASK passenger and people bound to Tiptur and Arsikere prefer this apart from long distance travellers.

The LP was honking continuously until the loco passed by me, thanks for
the lovely honks!!

This one is an ex-GZB WAP-1 rebuilt as WAP4. GZB WAP-1s were quite famous for having this kind of horns. I once traveled by Hirakund Express from Bilaspur to NZM, and the WAP1/4 attached from Katni had the same horn. And this is at least 12 years ago.

Looks so. Out of 245 something kilometers, I guess only Jammu Udhampur section is pending. Jalandhar-Chakki Bank-Jammu is done.
BTW, what is the status of Jalandhar - Jammu doubling? Should be getting over soon.
