Manmad is a major Junction Point for Kalyan / Nanded / Daund / Bhusaval, and may well be termed as a treasure house for Railfans
.
> It is a loco changeover point; trains from and to NED / DD / PUNE change locos from diesel to electric and vice versa here. A good location to spot various locos from different sheds of IR, popular being MLY / GY / KYN / ET / BSL / PUNE / GY
.
...
more...

In the pit-line adjacent to PF-1, electric locos are parked. PF-1 is on the extreme left while moving from Manmad to Bhusaval.
.
At the outer of both ends of the station, one can see electric as well diesel locos parked freely in the pit and loop lines.
.
Manmad has a huge Food Corporation of India godown and also the refineries of IOCL, BPCL and HPCL. Owing to this, one can spot freights (BCNA / BTPN / BTPGLN) loaded with foodgrains and oil, hauled by WDG-3A/4 and also WAG-5/7/9 of various sheds across India.
.
Being a major junction, there is a considerable presence of RPFs around the station and movement of railway officers and staff. So RFs need to take extra care while photography.
.
There is a road overbridge before you enter MMR from BSL side, you can stand on that bridge and take aerial view without the risk of being caught. One more location is the parallel road that runs beside the tracks from PF-1 side towards BSL.

It is the nearest railway station to go to Bandhavgarh National Park (35 km). Taxis and Buses are available from Station to Park. The nearest major railhead is Katni Jn, 100 km away by road and 60 km by rail.

I visited Bandhavgarh National Park in 2010. It is one the places where you have great chances for sighting a tiger. I took 6 jeep rides in 3 different routes and spotted tiger 4 times. Kanha,Ranthambore and Tadoba didn't spot any. April and May are the best months to spot animals as they come to a few waterholes left. Don't take the guaranteed elephant safari to spot tigers as they are stage set. Be sure not to wear bright colored clothes and carry a binocular.

The railway station is situated outside the city. The distance from city-centre and MSRTC Central Bus Stand is around 8 kms. There are autos available from city to station and back. Autos are metered, charging Rs. 20/- for the first 1.5 km and Rs. 14 for every extra km. Rickshaws have electronic meters.

When in Nagpur Jn, dont forget to taste "Haldiram Nagpur's Phalahari Chiwda", a namkeen snack just of 5 and 10rs/pck. Its of Haldiram brand, but available only in Maharashtra or at Nagpur nearby regions. One can get it at every stall of Nagpur Jn. Its really tasty, light snack and worth trying. It can be eaten during "fast (vrat)" also.

Brilliant train in the mumbai-hyd-bza route. It gets great clearance through out the route. Personally i have traveled from pune-bza. Punctuality is great and this train is trustworthy. Its speed is mind blowing. Its one of the few train which covers pune-solapur in 4 hours, thus with an avg speed of 66kmph. Great intercity train for pune to solapur. Also halts are least and during night time, so the whole train is nearly empty. At pune, my coach S4 was 80% filled, but after solapur it was only 40-50% occupied. You can even travel in general class.
Only glitch is it's awkward arrival timing at secunderabad.

This train is exclusively for ppl of WL/BZA/RJY/COA. Already SC has 3 trains including Konark. So they have designed like this, but the problem with this train is the days of operation. It should have reached LTT on Friday and Monday instead of Sunday & Thursday. It will be packed.

Not only general coach, you can even buy a general ticket and board SL coach if travelling till BZA. Easily TTE will be able to provide you seat as ample amount of seats are vacant throughout the journey.
