I travelled by 12026 Shatabdi express in the last week. The train started 20 min late from Sc and reached 25 min late at Pune. Food was only passable. I was checking the expiry date on the coaches and it was something between 2015 and 2016. So I guess the new LHB rake may not come until we reach the expiry of the coaches. I am getting a sure feeling that the LHB coaches for this train have been given to Mumbai Ahmedabad shatabdi. I think this train will never get a LHB because it is never full in seasons other than summer. So always the used coaches of other old shatabdis will be routed to this train. Yes we may get LHB coaches but they will be second hand ones (already used on another shatabdi route. like Mumbai Adi or NDLS Bhopal). ALso the route has a limitation that any...
more...
train cant travel more than 110 kmph on this route. It is a single track and therefore there is no need for high speed LHB rakes we can easily so with the old ICH coaches.

The CR LHB coaches for this train were rolled out recently and a couple of coaches had even reached Mumbai.But they were grabbed by NR for Anvt-Kgm shatabdi and went back to Ndls.
Now these CR coaches would be used by this shatabdi till new coaches for NR is released,thereafter the used coaches would be given back for SC shatabdi.

Going through the PNR entires S5 seems to be more of a SUR-HYB quota...Few Instances shows some other coaches as well but in major S5 seems to be the one.

We never get reservation for 17031/2 Mumbai-Hyderabad Express train. 17031/2 is the best train to go from Hyderabad to Pune and vice-versa. Regular ticket is always full but also tatkal is difficult. If tatkal booking starts at 10 am this train will get full by 10.20 am. The only solution is that railway should make this a 22 rake train (if this becomes 22 coaches then Husain Sagar Exp also becomes 22 rake as there is rake sharing between both these trains). And this train can have a double diesel engine (just like Konark now a days is having 2 diesel locomotives from Secunderabad to Mumbai). Railway should do this as this is the best train on this route and is necessary for the sake of passengars. It is even better than the old coaches "tuti-phooti" (broken coaches) shatabdi exp.

Making it a 22 or even 24 coaches is not a problem from SCR end they can well make it but due to PF & Maintenance facility constraints at CSTM its not being done..Off course both this and Hussain sagar are maintained supremely well...

Yes.This is the most preferred train from Pune(Reason why it has a huge Pune Qouta) and Hussainsagar is the most preferred by Mumbai Public. Both the trains are highly popular and should be made 24 coaches. Very few people opt for Shatabdi and Duranto to go to HYD.

The rake/coach composition given here for intercity exp in this website (indi rail info) is wrong. I suffered because of this. The rake mentioned for Indrayani express in the india rail info website in the correct one and that same compositon applies for this intercity exp as the rake is same for both trains. I don't know how to change this in this website so am requesting anyone who can make the change in the website to please do so as it will avoid inconvenience to passengers.

Hello friends I travel a lot between Pune and Hyderabad. Have travelled a couple of times by Pune Shatabdi. I am posting photos of toilets from Shatabdi express (with no fan and all horrible and old) and Mumbai Hyderabad express (17031 DN; photo with fan in the toilet and interior very good/posh). The toilet of Mumbai express was waaaay better/posher (it was the new green/bio-friendly toilet) than that of Shatabdi Express. We pay so much more money for Shatabdi. The fares of Shatabdi and Rajdhani will be going up once again and this is the kind of horrible service we get. Mumbai express is not even a superfast train but the coaches, its service etc is superb in comparison to this wretched Shatabdi. The food is also not all that good (I am not saying terribly bad because THANKS TO ALL OF MY FRIENDS AND MYSELF who complained to railways...
more...
and because of that the food is supplied from Solapur station now instead of the horrendous food that used to be served at Gulbarga station...I had fallen ill after taking Gulbarga food). As usual unreserved ticket holders get into the train between Solapur and Wadi (including BEGGARS....who piss in the corridor which connects tow coaches and also spit out there. Its a urinal cum spittoon). The conductors disappear after checking your tickets. They do not bother to ask the unreserved passengers/beggars to leave. I have even seen some of the conductors taking bribes from the unreserved passengers. The coaches are old and seriously this train NEEDS A NEW LHB RAKE AND NOTHING LESS THAN THAT. Railways are proudly saying that this is the longest distance diesel locomotive run Shatabdi and they are proud of it but they are giving it an OLD ICF RAKE. I have complained many times to railways about old/pathetic coaches and broken seats/electric connections not working, poor quality food, beggars/unreserved passengers etc but nothing is happening. IT IS HIGH TIME THEY GIVE THIS SHATABDI AN LHB RAKE. They are testing patience of passengers.
Also I want to take this opportunity to THANK ALL OF MY FRIENDS AND FELLOW PASSENGER COLLEAGUES WHO ARE TRYING VERY HARD (BY COMPLAINING TO RAIL AUTHORITIES) TO GET A LHB RAKE FOR THIS TRAIN AND BETTERMENT OF FOOD, AND RIDDENCE OF BEGGARS, UNRESERVED PASSENGERS ETC.
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH WE WANT AN LHB RAKE FOR THIS TRAIN AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
The only good news about this train is that by and large it is on time (only late by 10-15 mins)and also one gets the ticket easily (for trains like Konark and Mumbai express we have to book ticket 2 months in advance).
Once again thanks my friends who are complaining against the horrible treatment given by railways to the passengers of this train. IF WE DO NOT FIGHT/COMPLAIN THEN RAILWAYS WILL GIVE US WORSE THAN THIS (ALTHOUGH THERE CAN BE NOTTING WORSER THAN THE CURRENT CONDITION OF THIS TRAIN).

I travelled yersterday from Gulbarga to Pune. The coach conditions were good and acceptable, even though it was a 1993 made coach (CR 93155). The only complaint I had was rice was awful and dal was horrible. Rest everything OK. Speed is awesome. Will post full trip report soon...

Please request the RM on 26th of Oct my friend. We will be very grateful to you. It this train gets LHB coaches then it can become one of the best Shatabdi in India (I mean food and all can be improved later on but old broken coaches in the major issue with this train).

I am horrified by this train. There were beggars too in E1 coach. Each and every coach is broken. Toilets and even compartments are full of cockroaches and rats. Cockroach fell in my worst soup they serve at Gulbarga station. In coach C7 there were no attendents to serve food until Wadi (I boarded at SC). After a lot of fighting they gave food. Food..oh God it was horrible. I fell very sick after eating it. TT took bribes (no receipts) from some passengers (Rs. 500 each) so that they could travel in the train between Solapur and Gulbarga. I guess TT made about 10 to 20 thousand rupees that day as one of the coacj was empty. There is absolutley no system in this country. Government (in this case railways can increase fare or give us daal which is only flavoured curry water and zero daal) and make uspay shatabdi...
more...
charges and get away with it. Pune SC shatabdi is worst train ever. Even slower trains like Husain sagar and Mumbai express are posh as compared to this wretched Shatabdi. (I am reposting this comment as I am furious with the hopelessness and curroption in India)
