"Catering Available"
Let me tell you what that means for this train. Meaning of catering in this train is limited to orders of dinner and breakfast. Besides these two times, do not expect ANYTHING on board. Not even a water bottle.

I deeply recommend the passengers to have FULL SNACKS at JOLARPETAI Jn... because after that they will get VERY GOOD QUALITY FOOD at UBL... If LUCK is in your favour at Platform 01, there are 2 very good restaurants

Be alert at KJM station. When I travelled, there was no coach position displayed, neither there was any announcement of the train!!!!
There is veg/egg/chicken biryani sold in between KJM-YPR. There are vendors at YPR as well. Good 'e catering' options availble at YPR (dinner) & UBL (breakfast). at YPR one can get food served from KFC, Dominos & other vendors for thali etc..I ordered a a veg thali, every food item was warm, both vegs & daal were good in taste. Gulamjamun was delicious. Chapati was made from maida. Sufficient qtty of rice, 3 chapatis. The cost of thali was 155 (all inclusive). At UBL, I ordered Idli wada from e catering. It was good (better in taste & qtty than

what you get from platform vendor). It had 4 idlis, 1 wada, chutney & Sambar for Rs 40 (totally worth it!). UBL has good options in breakfast. Train mostly reaches before time @ Hubli South & Hubali. Vendors get in @ Hubli South only.
Not to mention about the Braganza Ghats & Dudhsagar!!!! If you get a berth on left side, you will get a good close-up view of the Dudhsagar Falls. (Just Ask Vendors when the Dudhsagar will come & get ready to capture it). If you want to capture it from the door, you should catch the door well in advance, else most of the travellers know about this falls & all the doors will be packed. If you are seating on right side of the train, you will get the remote view of the falls as train negotiates the curve just after dudhsagar falls.

Never Get Frantic for capturing a scene while moving in train...
and that too at Door.... someone slips or pushes resulting damage to us....
Just enjoy the scene as long as our eyes catch....
Be Safe while travelling...

MAS-YPR Loco link might have been upgraded for this train after recent TAT speed up (Oct 1st 2016). Mine was a first trip after TT change & it got a WAP7. Also, Breakers needs to be updated as UBL WDG4s in the loco section of the train. We got twin UBL WDG4s.

WAP7s are common for weekly trains to SBC/CBE but are not fixed links.

For 17311 , if someone wishes to book in GNWL to get confirmed tickets , then book from JTJ to MAO and mention the respective boarding station. Ex. If travelling from Krishnarajapura to Dharwad , then better book from Jolarpettai (JTJ) to Madgaon (MAO) and change boarding point to KJM, chances of confirmation will be high

Sir this tip is 2yrs old and now my IQ has improved for some level and yes we shld be alert and get-down at our respective station. The reason for this tip is when I travelled before posting this tip train reached ypr before time and no tea vendors screaming or arrival and departure announcements were there, for gods sake I got up before train left ypr for mas, ypr was jus like a normal 2pf stations very quite that day as soon as i got down train started to move towards mas and some one pulled chain and about 100's of passenger got down and train left after 10mins, As I was waiting for NED-SBC express to reach MWM.

IDLI WADA (rs 30) and Vada Pav(rs 20 ) are the two major food choices for breakfast. You may hear sounds of Bread omelette but that's of low quality and is sold out pretty quickly.
Pls dont expect anything except Vada Pavs once the train departs Londa.
