I had recently been to Kasara for an early morning RF session and here are some tips based on my personal experience.
-
1. Cleanliness: I had been there early in the morning and the condition of platforms were pathetic. There was garbage all around the platform and tracks. I returned at 12 noon and till that time, no cleaning was taken up. I had taken home cooked food which I couldn't have as I did not find a single place on the platform to be clean where I could have my food.

2. Food: There is a huge crowd of vendors who sell vada pavs, Mineral Water, Cold Drinks, etc. I didn't taste the food and hence can't comment on that.
-
3. Taxis to Igatpuri and Nasik: Share taxis to Igatpuri and Nasik are available at the exit on the eastern side of the platfrom, i.e towards PF#4. The charges from Kasara to Igatpuri and Nasik are 40rs per person and 70rs per person respectively. They take 13 people on board in a normal jeep and 15 people in a Maxx jeep. In return from Nasik, the charges are 80rs per person.
Taxis are also available to Ghoti and various other destinations.
-
4. Public transport: There is an MSRTC bus stand at about 200 metres away from the taxi stand. Buses are available to various destinations from this stop. An ST bus to Nasik was parked here.
-
5. Railfanning: 'AC heaven' is what you can call this place. Bankers are attached at this station and hence all the trains going in the down direction have a stop here. The scenic Thull ghat section starts after this station and therefore it is quite scenic. There is a separate resting cabin for the ghat drivers and hence you can even speak to the ghat LP's.

    There are some minor changes to the PNR Forum: 1. The main PNR feed will only show UN-predicted (by you) PNRs which are coming in. However, if there are replies, the PNR will show and will bubble to the top. Once you predict the PNR, it will go away from the main...

    This is regarding the appointment of Monitors. For TLMs, we require a minimum of 1000 Confirmed TLs. For FMs, we require members to promise to abide by the guidelines and be free of controversies. For other Monitors, we require the member to be in good standing. . However, "eligibility" does NOT always mean...

    The following changes are being made: 1. To restore the fun back to PNR Predictions, PNR Predictions will NOT be hidden anymore. PNR Predictions by members can be seen by ALL, before and after Charting. New members often look towards our expert predictors for hints, and we are reinstanting that. . 2. To better...

    @all: While we do nominally allow multiple IDs, these multiple IDs are NOT allowed to engage in misuse and "mischief". Voting multiple times in the same poll using multiple IDs, rating each other IDs' blogs using multiple IDs, etc. are classified as "gross misuse". . This is an advance notice that some of the...
