Sharing some of my personal experience with this train when i travelled in it in march.
I stay nearly 15km away from pune station. So it's a very terrible & tough idea of even getting to pune jn before 5.30a.m. Those who hav personal vehicles,its great,bt those who rely on bus or auto,i suggest them to pre book a dial-cab one night advance. I had to spend my 400 bucks to stay in lodge for one night near pune jn. as it was impossible to reach jn from my home, in the early morning.
Tea,breakfast

was average bt service standard was good. Patronage was nearly 60-70% frm pune itself. The speed is mindblowing as per seeing the pitiful conditions of CR tracks b/w daund and gulbarga. Loco link was a brand new emd wdp4d. Coaches looked new from outside bt inside its average. But still neat & clean. Majority of time it arrives secundrabad nearly around 2p.m. I think one of the most punctual train of CR.
But The main problem here is with the Seats as these are not that cushioned as are in LHB coaches.

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
