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.

    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...

    There are some changes coming to FMT. Many of the features of FMT, like station arrival, TT, speed, geo, passing times, station time, etc. are ALREADY available in OTHER railway apps. So all of these features will be REMOVED. We'll have ONLY BLOGGING - quick upload of pics/videos/audio, etc. You may attach...
