This train is KRs ISO certified train. Best for enjoying the beauties of Konkan with the demography changing from Urban to Semi Urban to Rural.
Best quality and tastier food available in this train with lots of varieties. The Pantry managed by M/s. Ahuja Caterers have been ranked country's No 1. The same Caterers also manage pantry aboard 10111/12 Konkan Kanya Express (another ISO train of KR) due to Rake sharing.
Your "MUST TRY !!" has made me vote Green ...
and think for travelling at least once...
This further pushes me to take the journey at least once. :)
One question Iyer sir. What all food options are available for the MAO bound Konkan Kanya as the train reaches well before lunch time.
There will be limited options in Konkan Kanya if any due to late running as it traverses the Konkan Route during night time. Otherwise meals are just limited to breakfast....
To experience a restaurant type lunch... One must travel in Mandovi Express..
I would suggest you to travel in Mandovi instead of KK.Once you eat food in Mandovi you will actually hate all other pantry service in IR
For enjoying food onboard KonkanKanya. pls travel MAO-CSTM 10112... Pls refer to my post /blog/post/909844
to have a look at Food options. I travelled on 10112 a day back.
What are the must try food items in mandovi exp?? will be travelling in it very soon, so asking..
From Briyanis to Thalis to Noodles and Fried Rive with few items that change on a daily basis...
Yes snacks are also available.... the varieties are more.... I always prefer Veg Thali on my every travel aboard 10112.... :)
Here are the pic of speeds maintain by 10103 Mandovi Exp in yesterday's Run. This train broke rules today by exceeding speed limits of 110kmph(High speed - 115kmph today).
Loco Link of today's - WDP4b #40017
Speed Restricted on KR - 120kmph (JS/RAJ) & 110kmph of other trains. Always try to maintain its schedule. Best train to enjoy KR.
All Hails for the
What application is this? Is it actually a digital speedo for DP4?
This is "Ulysse Speedometer" App available on Google Play for android.
Thanks but how does it work? I mean, is it a motion sensor type application? You just active the application and the speed is displayed?
The application is GPS based ... It gives approx speed of the train provided the satellite signals are clear ....
gr8.on which section did it attain this top speed?
Khed n Chiplun..
Bahut din baad dikhe IRI pe..
Is this Ulysse Speedometer App of Google Play actually reliable...
Cannot be relied upon 100% as some difference will always be there.
Mandovi Express Menu
The Pantry is processed with Ahuja Caters. The food of this train is the Indian Railway's Best food. The lowest price meal is provided in this Train Rs 42 per meal is lowest of IR
Thanks. I've been for long wanting to travel by Mandovi, only for its food!
I note that there is a spelling mistake of 'Konkan' in the menu card (it is spelled as 'Konakan').
Best Train to enjoy Konkan Railway. Food King of Indian Railway. Best Coach Maintainance and one can enjoy Sleeper coach in 2S ticket fares. Railfans Favourite train to discover KR between Roha and Madgaon. Even being slow, it is King of Konkan.
Pics clicked by me during trip in this train
Excellent,, where are these two way escalators, which stv???
Best chance to arrive Late also ? Best chance to Miss the Onward Journey Booked Train also?
Looking at history of its late arrivals at MAO, I cancelled my tickets , though I had booked in advance CSTM MAO , MAO YPR.
Only Wednesday ko late, rest of the days 1 hours max delay hogi till Madgaon..
Ya. Wednesday ko 50105 ke piche hi rakhte hai Ratnagiri/Sawantwadi tak. Other Days it overtakes between Roha-Khed
Why only Wednesdays it stays behind?
Not Given Priority. Jyada crossings rehte hai so not allowed to go ahead early
Express running in line of passenger train
This train (along with Konkan Kanya) has best Pantry services. Food Quality on par with Premeire trains like Shatabdi/Rajdhani/Durnto etc.
Pantry services are run by Ahuja cateres (if i am ot wrong) & serve both Veg & non veg items.
Enjoy scenic beauty of KR route in day time with delicious food on board..
Same apply for Konkan Kanya too.. But you can enjoy scenic beauty after Ratnagiri
Actually i came know about this new function today only..n havent saw ur post..
On par ?
They are better than any train on IR (except Deccan odyssey and palace on wheels ofcourse )
I compare with Mumbai/SDAH Rajdhani's food service, which are best in IR, but now few member have complained about food quality in King of WR & King of ER too. So your statements are partilally correct.
India's best Pantry/Cantering food if u want please travel in this train. ISO certified train for best food and greatest coach maintain
The signal is same as opinions
As we click on opinions, we can see who all had rated
same as we click on signal, we can see the raters
How does it compare with Deccan Queen Pantry Car service and quality of Food ?
Deccan queen serves breakfast nd tea only . whereas mandovi serves whole meal for the journey
Deccan Queen is not just Tea Coffee train, it does serve breakfast as well and has pantry car too I suppose .
Here is response about Decca Food, /blog/post/969554
Sir, have a trip in it. We can't explain here :D
Soon I will have and let you know ... mean time someone from Pune will be here to reply also ...
deccan queen has Dining car (35 persons at a time) whereas mandovi has Pantry car.
Service and taste wise both these train's food are nearly same.
In Deccan queen you can sit in the dining car itself and fill your tummy , whereas in mandovi , the pantry people will bring food and eatable things to your seats for selling just like in normal trains.
In mandovi we will get variety of food.
Also we get a diet food.
Vendors provides bill on demand.
Best point is vendors continuously selling food for full journey nonstop.
