Sainagar is a very well maintained station with ample facilities.
1. Platform: Only one platform is operational (in 2015) and hence there is no need to walk thorough an over bridge.
2. Waiting Rooms: There are three waiting rooms. The General waiting room has three separate toilets for Ladies, Gents and a separate one for the Handicapped persons. The General waiting room is very spacious and can accommodate about 50 people at one time. While we visited this station, the General waiting room was far better and cleaner than the upper class waiting

room. If you wish not to book a hotel, you may freshen up at the waiting room and leave for the temple directly. There is a cloak room at this station where you can keep your luggage safely. Make sure you lock your luggage or else they would disallow you.
3. Getting to the temple: Tum-Tum auto rickshaws are available 24X7 at the station. You should pay 20-30 Rs per seat and don't pay more than that. They sometimes demand Rs 100 but don't be fleeced. We paid 25 Rs per seat for reaching our hotel at 4 am which was in the interior lanes, 10 minutes from the temple. It takes 15 minutes by an auto rickshaw to reach the temple.
4. Food: There is one small shop at the station which sells Rail Neer water bottles and some biscuits. You don't get much snacks at this shop. Pulav is packed and sold by private vendors at the station after 8 pm which costs Rs. 30 per plate. It tastes average. Tea vendors would be present at the station throughout the day.
5. Security: RPF's are stationed 24X7 at this station and hence this station has good security.
6. Drinking water: A water cooler is provided near the ladies waiting room for the convenience of the passengers.
Final TIP: It has become way more convenient to get to shirdi after the Sainagar station became operational.

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    A minor update, but may impact many members: Hereafter, FMs will be able to delete invalid Red Flags on Imaginary trains. Red Flags can be removed by FMs, only against specific complaints filed against the blog. This does not give all members the right to complain against EVERY single red flag they...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far. It gives me immense pleasure in congratulating them for running the team diligently, professionally, competently and above all, without a shred of controversy or bias. The FM position...
