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.

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.

Travel comfortably.Charger 2 nos are in working condition but always in use .So both end of the coach further 2 nos of charger points have to be provided in this long distance trains.
Cleanliness good .Especially at Erode Junction cleans well.
This ordinary Expresses have to be converted as S/F and operated via Guntakal to Kalluru by skipping Gooty Jn and Salem to Karur via Namakkal by skipping Erode Junction.This shortest route are saved by the distance of ( 18+38 ) 56 km and Loco reversal time 20 minutes at
So the running time of Mumbai-Nagercoil S/F exp may be saved around 4 to 5 hours and arrived Nagercoil around 10.30 to 11.30 pm instead of the present late night 3.25 am of the next day.
Similarly Nagercoil-Mumbai S/F Expresses arrived Mumbai CST around 16.00 to 17.00 ( 4.00 pm to 5 pm ) in the evening convenient time rather than the present at night 20.50 ( 8.50 pm )

We enter the train with great difficulties.50 to 60 regular commuters disembark and 50 to 60 members enter in S4 compartment on 10.6.2015 at 4.00 pm.Our pnr 8334368451.
The train received in the 6 th platform which has no coach indication boards.No manual coach no from engine also not in the 6 th platform.In between 6 th and 5 th platform we noticed the hundreds of Rodents .We approximately standing in the 7 th coach from engine towards Solapur side and watched Rodents movements after the Deccan exp departure around 3.30 pm to 3.55 pm.
I request that PUNE area admin / enthusiastic members may please be video around 3.40 pm in between 5 th and 6 th platform regarding the Rodent menaces in this site since on that day i forget to bring Smart phones.
The Pune division may allot just 5 minutes to this Mumbai- Nagercoil exp other than 6 th platform. 6 th platform is very unhygienic with bad smell at that time .But heartening to see some scavengers manually working in that area.
Once again humbly requested PUNE DIVISION to allot platform for the Mumbai- Nagercoil exp other than 6 th platform or 5 minutes only..

While booking from Mumbai to Pune, if you get PQWL, go ahead and book. Even high PQWL gets confirmed at charting. But do not attempt taking a general ticket and entering train to find a vacant berth. Finding TTE itself is a challenge.

Cleanliness very best since on board cleaning in SR;SWR and SCR.The train arrived around 4.00 am at Gooty junction.At this junction I observed the display of train direction movement.GOOTY marked in centre place in elliptically shaped enclosure in yellow colour rectangle.MUMBAI marked with direction in red colour.opposite direction CHENNAI within the arrow shows the train moved towards CHENNAI .Also a small arrows shows the direction of the train movement towards SECONDRABAD and BANGALORE .Very fine display of the directional movement of trains towards the major stations.This systems may be followed in all the stations and junctions as in SCR GOOTY junction.Train runs right time and the journey very pleasant.
