Udupi Station has only some light refreshment stalls on PF 1. PF2 has only a small strip of shelter like a village R.S.
The station is slightly on an elevated level. There is an elevator to reach the car park from just outside PF 1.
A small budget lodge and an eatery is there just behind tourist car park. Udupi city centre is about 4 kms from the station and Udupi-Manipal highway is about half a km away.
Prepaid

auto facility seems to be there, although I am not sure if it functions effectively.
The display of coach position is interesting at the notice board. It does not show position of coaches from engine and direction. Instead it shows a coach will stop at the number where it is displayed. For example in our train 22475, engine was at number 24 on the platform, where it stopped. Our coach was 10th from engine. The display notice mentioned A1 would be where 14 number is on the platform. Bit confusing for non regular passengers.
There are just one or two porters at the station who normally show up only before a train is scheduled to arrive. Unless, we request the station staff to call him over his cell phone.

Thanks, I could not forget the best ever breakfast which I had at UD while I was on journey on 56640. The train stopped here for about 20 minutes due to some issue (requiring a foreign passenger to buy ticket who boarded without ticket, the railway police helped her too much. She missed to get down at Karwar from Mangala express as she slept & Mangala was about 12 hours late. She thus got down from Mangala at UD and got into this train).
This gave us chance to relish fresh tasty Neer dosa, crispy samosa, juice etc. If not for this halt due to a foreigner we would not have got chance to have this superb food at UD.

Retiring Room facilities at Nagpur Junction are one of the best. It has a Maharaja Lounge, to stay like a king. They have adequate accommodation and maintained well by outsourced team.

Are there any lodges for family stay for a few hours near Hindupur Railway Station or town. Just for few hours, bath, visit Lepakshi and take a train further.
Any cloak room facility at the station.

Most of the Special trains, particularly which are run during Pujas like Chhat, Deepavali, New Year etc., are used by migrant populations of lower and middle class. How far is it fair that these trains are all Suvidha trains with accelerated fares?

Once upon a time Wathar Station used to be a station for meals, where all trains would stop for 15-20 minutes. That was long long ago.

Not an empty coach in the yard but seen in running train today by which I am travelling, taken midway at JTJ, the last halting station before the train leaves for MAS. It is C4 coach on 22.09.16.
Fall out of surging price? KoSurely. This morning although 345 seats were available the price was Rs 1200 as against Rs.935.

IR is stupid and so is their flexi fare system. In a dynamic fare system, prices go up/down depending on the demand, while in flexi fare it only goes up.IR is stupid to opt for this. Also, Shatabdi being day time trains are preferred less than overnight ones. Bhai flexi fare lagane hai to Chennai-SBC Overnight Mail me lagao, wahan demand bhi milegi. Yahan kahen ki demand hai. Aise stupid decision lenge Railway wale aur baad mein fir bolenge ki paise nahi hain hamare paas. Are kaise honge, thodi si akal ho kuch apply karenge na.
Main kehta hoon, paise kamane hain toh unke fares badhao jahan sabse jyada losses hote hain and jahan koi aur alternatives nahi hain, eg

suburban rail services. Har ek ticket ka daam 25 % bhi jyada karenge toh bhi koi demand kam nahi hogi kyunki yeh services uske baad bhi road services se bahut sasti hain.

Because there is acute water shortage in Tungabhadra River, Mantralayam Road Railway Station has given way to Krishna Railway Station ( banks of Krishna River) as watering station.
