For passengers bound to Tumkur and surrounding areas, its better to get down at Gauribidanur as there is a direct bus from Gauribidanur to Tumkur at 5am via Koratagere (Total travel time is 2 hours). This is a private bus service (quite prompt in maintaining timings) and government bus service starts by 7am. Bus stand at Gauribidanur is in walkable distance from railway station (around 1.5 kms). Autos are available at station entrance.
Also buses bound to Tumkur, pass by LC gate located next to railway station where in they stop for passengers to board.

If you are a Nature lover > The ~1 hour section between Yelahanka (YNK) and Gauribidanur (GBD) is very beautiful, where the train pass through vast plains, curving through several hills. Get a window seat to your right (YNK > GBD) to enjoy the view.

Revolution to this train service if ignore its punctuality, 3AC service was awesome, its feels like I was In Rajdhani train, cleanliness is 101% toilets were neat and clean, floor were dry and water is present in whole journey, air freshener smells feels like five star hotel, behavior of staff is surprisingly good, sold water bottles and cold drinks in MRP rates, food-tea tastes better, in pic u will found that how they serve the hygienic food, packed salad, packed halwa, rice are cooked better, Chappati with ghee, overall food was 9 out of 10, two times they come with satisfaction form to take ratings about whole journey, really surprising that Railway is Changing and moving to the path of development and improvement in all sectors...

Cheaper version is Marusagar which has SL and general too. Rajdhani is not good for rail fanning as doors are closed and the windows are tinted. Usually they don't allow you to open the doors as pantry guys are busy stacking food near them. Marusagar any day.

For railfanning in konkan railway kerala sampark kranti express is best in the route. Has sleeper coaches, less stoppages , good punctuality and also less disturbance from unreserved passenger like the UP bihar routes.

The food quality and quantity have notched up after the recent hike in catering charges. Pls don't hesitate to ask for extras, I was happily served extra rotis on 2 occasions . And I did see people asking for extra rice, dal etc which he served with a smile on his face. Surprisingly the pantry guys never asked for any tips.

Yes, the housekeeping staff certainly do(I paid rs 10) but I don't remember the catering guys asking for tips from me or my co passengers. Perhaps I was lucky on the day.
