Any WL from Pune to Mumbai gets confirmed during charting of source station as many passengers have booking only till Pune. Hence confidently go for any WL, just ensure to book before charting of source station.
Several duplicate Travel Tips have now been removed.
When the same Travel Tip applies to many Trains or Stations, then please use the "Add Tag" feature to add multiple Trains or Stations to that same Travel Tip. The Tip will thereafter automatically appear against all those trains & stations in their respective pages.
Now that multiple trains have been tagged together, adding another related tip for all these trains. One can buy general ticket from Pune to Mumbai and approach the TTE for a berth. Almost 100% you will get berth.
Adding of tag can be done by original blogger only ?
Yes, that's how it is as of now. We may observe and modify/enhance this aspect as per need.
Even people who can reply should be able to tag, at least for tips.
Or a request should be sent automatically to original blogger.
In Konark express (11020), I have found this travel tip correct. There are many people traveling from Bhubaneswar, Visakapatnam, Secundrabad all are getting down at Pune. So between Pune and CSTM there are lot of seats are empty.
But this is applicable only for 17032,not for 17031. Two times i had been cheated by this train travelling from pune to hyd. Both in sleeper. one time i got pqwl 25 and other time i got pqwl 23. Both times it got stuck near to 15..... Had to take bus to travel.....
The tip is about how to travel from Mumbai to Pune, not how to travel from Pune to HYD .
Sir thnaksss for information..
But if I want a ticket from Pune to thane of 3AC soo can I go for any waiting list number??? Or for sleeper only this rule is applicable please tell me
To avoid multiple / duplicate travel tips of same nature, can IRI devise Dropdown menu for Travel tips ?
If it is done many usuers need not 'read' multiple blogs tool !
Train's speed is very low. Poor. No aggresive speed will be shown by this train throughout the journey. And even though it runs late but always arrives on right time,all thanks to its huge slack time. But one thing is a feast to eye for a railfan,brutal overtake by hutatma exp. So if travelling in this train,don't forget to record this overtake.
+ Shatabdi tearing from opposite direction at MPS.
Yes. Truely saying when shatabdi brutally crosses this in the single line stretch, literally it's coaches shake as if some earthquake have hit.
The train is one of the best maintained trains running through this route. Coaches are new and clean with charging sockets available. Also water is present through out the journey.
+ Bio Toilets. Moreover, they have dedicated rakes with TT affixed inside coaches. SCR maintenance is top class.
But sir there is one problem i hav seen in bio-toilets,that towards the end of journey,these toilets start to stink too much with bad smell. I wonder if others would also have faced the same.
Couldn't see IRCTC guys selling tea/water in the whole trip. All were outsiders selling items at higher price. Hussain Sagar express was better in this respect. Better make your arrangements (like water bottles) from station itself. Coach B2. Traveled on 10th Feb.
Great tip citing specific experience and date of travel - especially it ends by telling the passenger "what to do", rather than just "highlighting a problem".
