I,alongwith my 5 friends boarded Goa Express from Pune to Castle Rock for Doodhsagar waterfalls. Seats were confirmed as most of this train empties in Pune. We enjoyed the travel experience, especially the Adarki curve and Shidawane ghat section. The train was pretty impressive on punctuality, but it let down in catering. Food was overpriced, not cooked well. I visited pantry car, to my surprise, I saw almost 20-30 rats over there. I asked the manager who inturn blamed the owner of the contract. Well, we managed somehow with snacks and local food vendors at Miraj. Train... more...
reached 5mins earlier at CLR. It was a dark foggy night. At castle rock (platform)we all had vegetable biryani which was hot and very delicious. It was @40rs per plate. As we were 6 of us we started to move towards Doodhsagar. It was during August 2013. There was entire darkness, with mist around us blocking long distance visibility. We had prepared for the travel, as we had torches along with us. A strange whistle of a bird from the forest around was adding to the adventure. We witnessed many small waterfalls and off course many trains, especially goods train. It was thrill to tratrainhrough tunnels and bridges. We had left CLR at around 0430 AM and reached Doodhsagar falls at around 10 am. The 13 Km trek was awesome and thrilling. Later we boarded a train (18047) and reached Kulem, another peaceful little village in South Goa. We took general tickets till pune and boarded Goa express. We got seat in general coaches from Londa Jn. The train reached Pune at its scheduled time and this marked the end of our adventurous tour. A signal(in the pic) while we were walking to Doodhsagar confused all of us.If anyone could explain that; would be appreciated. P.S.- Now, no one is allowed to go along the tracks till Doodhsagar. You can reach there by road form Kulem.
This place is blessed by Nature like many other places.....but as it has acquired fame the visiting crowd is increasing. Some careless people behave irresponsibly; Some extreme cases have led to death due to drowning. One should be very careful and responsible at such a place.

Story of Mhasoba Dongargaon Mhasoba Dongargaon is small village in Sangola Tahsil situated on boundary of Solapur & Sangali district. In 2009, CR has created railway station here, but it was lacking in facilities. So all villagers came together and started working on different tasks. Now... more...
this small station is having all necessary facilities and it was provided by local people. All passengers boarding/alighting here has ensuring to purchase proper tickets. If someone is in hurry and by mistake not taken ticket, then punishment is give water to trees on station. Cleaning, water supply and other facilities are provided by local villagers only.

I really dont understand what makes railways to construct PF at Pilgrim centers where land is not a issues. If not an alternate station can be build. Same issues with Kolhapur, Tirupati, Shirdi...etc Railways should work with state govt. These are not 1000s crs projects. All are below 20-30 crs but makes huge difference
Kolhapur station is the terminus in the heart of City. There is very limited space there.. so new platform construction, increase of platform 1 lenght to 24 coaches are not possible at current situation.. So as you said, construction of new station is only option. There is enough land of CR is there at Gur Market (Railway Goods Shed). CR can easily construct new station there. But PUNE Division is totally neglecting Pune - Miraj - Kolhapur section.
#DiwaliDhamaka At one side railway is increasing fare in Shatabdi/Duranto Express (Flexi Fare), but other side CR SUR Division decided to run 01413/14 Solapur Miraj Fast Passenger Special till the end of Diwali (Travel with less fare). After Diwali this special will be converted as 11309/10 Solapur Miraj Express without any change in TT. So at the other side CR given relaxation in... more...
