Some indicators at Pune station show 51421 Pune-Nanded Passenger. The announcement for this train at Pune station is also Pune-Nanded passenger. So... Don't confuse.

One can enter this station from Pune-Mumbai highway side also. But there is no ticket window on this side. There is 1 ATVM on this side but most of time its not working. So it is better to enter station from Bus stand side for purchasing ticket.

Today travelled in 17213 from NED to AWB in SL with "current booking".
Train arrived at NED 1:10 hrs late.
All SL coach doors locked.. But Luckily my coach door was open.
While entering policeman asked me "do u have reservation?"
Then
...
more...
he told me to close the door.
After departure from NED TC came & asked a couple in front of my seat to show ticket. They have II class ticket. TC told them to pay the difference.
They asked TC to adjust (may be with 50 Rs.)
But TC was very sincere....He told them to go to II class.
.
Policeman was continuously walking through reserved coaches with torch and looking for doors, windows......
Excellent security....

Yesterday (15:48)   12725/Siddhaganga Intercity Express

Tip is for: Unreserved passengers and ladies especially those with kids.
-
Siddhaganga is one of the most popular trains towards Hubballi. Getting a seat in this train at SBC (Majestic) itself is very tough. The space is even less with all coaches being the seating type (3+3) unlike the long seats with luggage racks at top for seating as seen in long distance trains.
-
...
more...

So here is what you do. Go to Yeshvantpur YPR station at around 11 AM, buy 2 tickets: 1 from YPR to SBC costing some 10rs and another from SBC to where ever you want to go (Superfast ticket). Go to PF no. 3 and wait for the Shivamogga ICE. Shivamogga train has rake (coach) sharing with Siddhaganga SF train. When that train comes (usually late at 12), board one of the GEN coaches and when SBC comes take over the seat from whoever alights. Many come to YPR to board the SMET train knowing this rake sharing, so look around and get the seat at SBC as fast as possible. Also try for a seat that is closer to the LCD TVs :)
-
For ladies:
- You can either go to YPR as mentioned above or if you can't then at SBC PF 9, walk to the extreme end towards Mysuru side. When the train comes people will fight to get into the GEN coaches. Women and those with kids can't get into GEN coaches. At that time try to board the last coach called SLR - a combined coach for guard, physically challenged people and for ladies. The board indicating that it is for ladies is not displayed but it is understood it is for them. Even if men try to enter you can call RPF for help.
- There are 2 SLR coaches. Many think that only the front one is for ladies and never realise that at the rear too one is present. Usually very few board the rear SLR. Only when people start fighting for seats do the RPF come and send women to the SLR.

Never Ever...Again saying NEVER EVER even think to board this train in GENERAL coach.
Its pathetically crowded (even more than many Bihar-delhi-punjab trains) and gets filled up from Bihar itself. Don't stay in illusion that there are 5 coaches and you will get it vacant. I am assuring you , these 5 coaches are also very less to cater the huge demand this train gets.

However, we still have on Average, about 300 Waitlisted TLs in the backlog at any time, and our hard-working and diligent TLMs...
