Double Bed Retiring Room is Excellent at this station. It is on PF no 1. It is an AC room (Split AC) with 2 section metal almirah (Different Door for each section) (Inbuilt Locks and has slots for your own lock as well), One table, Two chairs. Washroom is very big and clean. It is on platform, so train announcements can be heard pretty loud and clear inside the room (Which may annoy some people during night stays). They also provides a door Lock and you can use your own lock for door as well. Cleaning is done at around 9 AM. Canteen on PF1 is very close to retiring room.

You can checkin at any time. 8 to 8 slot is Railway's timing for room allocation so your room will be booked from 8 to 8. Ex. If you are cheking in at 1 than that room is your's till 8. If you want to stay more than you have to book the next slot as well.

Food Tips in "Ambarsari Tadka'.
1. Never Ever Forget to enjoy the God's own grace Food in Langar provided in The Darbaar sahib (Golden Temple) premises.
2. Brothers Dhabba or Bhrawan Dhabba, are two nearly identical restaurants right next to each other near Town Hall. Both highly rated. Brothers' "Amritsari Kulcha" is to literally die for.
3. Kesar da Dhaba. Located near the Golden
Temple, it offers good Punjabi food made in pure ghee. Daal Makhni is worth trying. Don't forget to try a glass of Lassi after a meal.
4. Bubby Dhaba, opposite Golden Temple (Just opposite the main entrance of Golden Temple). serves authentic Punjabi food at a very reasonable cost and ideally located, just few metres from the main entrance of the Holy Golden Temple.
5. Moolchand Fish Shop, Its Off the GT Road near Tourist Guesthouse. Find the Christchurch Cathedral (large red-and-green church, pretty conspicuous!) and keep walking, away from GT road. In about 2 minutes, you'll see a little shop selling fish. Open 08:00-23:00. This tiny place is the definition of hole-in-the wall. If it looks like it has been there for 50 years, it's because it has! They'll weigh out your fish based on how much you want to pay, fry it, put some delicious spices on it, and serve it with spicy green chutney and raw onions. A little hard to find, but worth it. About 50 rupees for a good-sized piece of fish, 70 rupees for a serving of chicken.
6. Gurdass Ram Jalebi wale (Pure vegetarian), Ahluwali Katra (very close to the main gate of Golden Temple). Eat Jalebis.... Only a indie sweet shop.
7. Kulcha Chole Dhaba (Pure vegetarian), Located at No. 1, Maqbool Road. Best Kulchas ever. Only a tandoori kulcha joint. No non veg at all.
PS: A end tip , Just don't Forget to enjoy the hot and tasty Amritsari Kulche Chholle. They are world famous. Doesn't matters from where you eat (obviously don't eat from Thela or footpath) , the taste will be somehow same and once for a lifetime.

Great. Been to Amritsar twice but never got a chance to taste this food. Longing since the time that program " Highway on my plate" showed all this Amritsari food. Have tasted the offering at the Temple though.

A Big and Busiest Junction Under SCR Zone "Vijayawada Junction" didn't have Bye-pass Line till last year 2016.Especially the Trains Coming From Visakhapatnam/Howrah/Bhubaneshwar/Guwahati/Sambalp ur/Kakinada/Machilipatnam/Narasapur going towards Hyderabad Via Kazipet route should be LocoReversed.Still Now the same Process has been repeating for these trains at Vijayawada Junction.The Trains Which are Coming from Kazipet Direction and Going towards Visakhapatnam direction which are getting Locoreversed at Vijayawada Junction are:-
I)Godavari S/F Express (12727/28) HYB-VSKP-HYB Daily Up and Down
II)Gowthami S/F Express (12737/38) SC-COA-SC Daily UP and Down
Express (18646/45)HYB-HWH-HYB Daily Up and Down
IV)Konark Express (11019/20) CSTM-BBS-CSTM Daily Up and Down
V)LTT Express (18519/20) VSKP-LTT-VSKP Daily Up and Down
VI)Machilipatnam S/F Express(12749/50) SC-MTM-SC Daily Up and Down
VII)GareebRath S/F Express (12739/40) SC-VSKP-SC Daily Up and Down
VIII)Narasapur Express(17213/14) NSL-NS-NSL (Except 2 days in a week) Up and Down
IX)AP A.C S/F Express(22416/15) NDLS-VSKP-NDLS Daily Up and Down
X)Swarnajayanthi S/F Express(12803/04) NZM-VSKP-NZM (Bi-weekly) Up and Down
XI)Link S/F Express(12861/62) NZM-VSKP-NZM Daily Up and Down
XII)Cocanada A.C S/F Express (12775/76) (CCT-SC-CCT) Up and Down (Tri-Weekly) Up and Down
XIII)Shirdi Express (17206/05) (COA-SNSI-COA) Up and Down Tri-Weekly
XIV)Dwaraka Express(18401/02) (PURI-OKHA-PURI) Up and Down Weekly
XV)Gandhidhaam Express(18501/02) (VSKP-GIMB-VSKP) Up and Down Weekly
XVI)Visakhapatnam A.C SuperFast Express (VSKP-SC-VSKP) (12783/84) Up and Down Weekly
XVII)Duronto A.C SuperFast Express (VSKP-SC-VSKP) Up and Down Tri-Weekly (22203/04)
XVIII)Nagawali S/F Express (SBP-NED-SBP) Up and Down Tri-Weekly (12755/56)
XIX)Nanded S/F Express (VSKP-NED-VSKP) Up and Down Tri-Weekly (12753/54)
XX)Shalimar A.C SuperFast Express (SHM-SC-SHM) Up and Down Weekly (12773/74)
XXI)Shalimar S/F Express (SHM-SC-SHM) Up and Down Weekly (22849/50)
XXII)Guwahati S/F Express (GHY-SC-GHY) Up and Down Weekly (12513/14)
XXIII)Tatanagar Express (TATA-YPR-TATA) Up and Down Weekly (18111/12)
In this way daily 9 Express/Superfast Express should be locoreversed at Vijayawada Junction in both directions and Remaining 14 Weekly/Bi-Weekly/Tri-Weekly Express/SuperFast/A.C Expresses should also be locoreversed at Vijayawada Junction
How long this locoreversal Problem continues at Vijayawada Junction?The better solution for this is to Construct " Vijayawada North Railway station" after Kondapalli with 4 platforms to avoid loco reverse problem.
Earlier the same situation was repeated at Kazipet Junction and Wardha Junction.Later on those halts were replaced by warangal and sevagram.Now we hope for Vijayawada Junction also

if your travelling to MAJN or past subramanya road for general travel or for railfanning sit on the left side of coach near the emergency window (bars free view:P).one's train leaves sakleswarpur,most of the people reserve their seats near door(i.e on right as trainy reverses post ASK)so better be hurry and occupy as this section gives one of BEST SCENIC VIEWS(better i say it as BREATHTAKING VIEWS for more than 3hrs.)where it passes through 60 tunnels and number of bridges(of which best will come at midst of journey around after passing 20tunnels so dont hurry and waste ur devices battery(like i did:P)as it descends loco pilot will do brake test at every halt and between(almost stops atleast min or more if ur lucky that day),so if u are smart,adventurer kinda be hurry move down and take a better snaps(i have tried many)

No stopping while Up hill earlier.... But few months back SWR in its PR said 1 min stop at all Stations on Ghats. Please do confirm if u are travelling.
& Brakes Checking is required only for Down hill ride. If trains stop Uphill, Then it has to Accelerate hard to start on Gradients.
