Travelled by this train from Hubli to YPR last night. The train arrived at PF 3 at 10:20 and departed at 10:32 (12 mins late). There were not many passengers on platform (may be this train is not popular yet). PF 1 was jam packed with passengers waiting for RC exp which was expected to arrive at 10:25 pm.
Train stopped somewhere before Haveri for crossing and reached DVG at 1 am.
I woke up in the morning at 6:08 and the train was reaching PF#4 at YPR.
Overall
...
more...
journey was much comfortable with less crowd and less number of stoppages compared to RC exp.
The train was not full on Monday night (I would say it was 90% full), you can imagine what would be situation on W and F night. Even general compartment was as comfortable as sleeper class - not much crowd.
Observation: There was no announcement for this train at all at Hubli station. They were only announcing for RC exp. Don't know what could be the reason.
Secondly, no catering available ex Hubli at all. There are not even chaiwalas roaming around in the morning. Good in one way as your sleep won't be disturbed.

Can I book a parcel (two wheeler) in this train from Hubli to Pune?
I won't be travelling along. So what are the chances that it will not be unloaded at Pune?
Is it necessary that vehicle owner should collect it at destination? Can somebody else collect on my behalf by producing the receipt?

If the rakes from Rani Chennamma exp are kept idle at hubli for 16 hours, how will the train return to hubli on the same day for return journey?
Rani Channamma has 2 rakes (one leaves SBC and other leaves KOP on same day).
Does this train 06948 have 3 rakes?

Any scope/plans for superfast trains between Pune and Bangalore (like proposed Pune Hyd Shatabdi)?
This will definitely generate lot of revenue for railways. Currently volvo buses take only 14-15 hours whereas railways take min 20 hours for this journey. Already there are at least 40 volvos plying on this route daily which transport at least (30*40 = 1200) 1200 passangers daily through luxury travel.
So even a full AC train if started on this route will be surely a big hit!

heard that there was a demand for such a train between these stations but unfortunately this was not considered in this budget.
Is there any opposition from bus lobby? or is this due to lack of political will?
What's the status or future plan of dharwar-belgaum link?

I have booked a ticket last night from home. Today I am trying to login from office in order to print the ticket, but the site is down.
Please suggest how can I take a print out if the site is not up till the scheduled departure of train.
Can I board the train without the ticket? Or can I get it printed from some railways office?

Just see your coach/berth no. in the chart and board the train with your ID proof. You will have to a charge of Rs. 50/- if you don't have a print-out but you can travel. But if you have the print-out but no ID proof, you will be treted as travelling WITHOUT TICKET.

By rule you can board the train with valid ID card. The TTE will charge you Rs. 50 and give you a receipt. I have also once travelled and TTE charged me Rs. 50.
