One of the best location for railfanning. Even though majority all the trains cross at night time (don't even dare think to do railfanning at night here), but still at afternoon time lots of diesel action is visible. Best time to railfanning photography is from 1430hrs to 1800hrs. This afternoon time is safe and no disturbance will be there. Catch the 1425hrs dep Pune-Nanded-Nzb passenger from pune and it's the 3rd station from pune.
The first train from aftrenoon starts with the pune bound jhelum express (if its late which its always gets late). Then enjoy the KJM hunk udyan express, Pune hunk Goa express, south TVC trains, jammu bound jhelum , SUR king Hutatma exp and Hyd shining express, with inbetween
continuous freight actions. All the action is presently in diesel traction, but soon in 2-3 years electric locos will rule this region.
There's a gradient at a distance with turn towards Loni-Daund side, which makes a valuable catch for rail photgraphers.
At about 1730hrs, local passenger will come to station to return pune by the 1830hrs dep daund-pune local. 15min prior to train arr, the SM comes and sell tickets. Return to pune jn. by this train. The last local to return pune is at about 2030hrs (which majority of time comes late as it comes from NZB).
Keep your bag full of eatables snacks and water as at platform its nothing present.
People are bit curious to see a person taking photographs of trains. So don't get rude if they ask for the reason. Show them your collection. If happy, they themselves will pose for a snap. !! ;)

    @all: This is to formally announce the END of the RailCal app. Due to the information blockade, the app has lost its value, and has been rendered completely useless. We are unable to support RailCal anymore. Sorry to disappoint our users. . RailCal has already been taken off the Google PlayStore. So once...

    @all: At this time, the PNR Forum is functioning again, albeit at a greatly reduced volume and efficiency. Refreshing PNRs is a very cumbersome affair. We may expect this to end as well, eventually, as the Govt. tightens these controls further. At IRI, we CANNOT waste any more time on this fruitless...

Just Copy/Paste a small piece of text into your browser bookmarks. The bookmarklet will be available by morning. . 2. When you click on Post/Update/Refresh PNR, you will be taken to the Official...

    @all: The PNR Forum as we know it is OVER. The official website has unilaterally decided to thoroughly block and shut down all access to PNR info. We had put in MANY, many years of PAINSTAKING effort to develop the PNR Prediction infrastructure, and our Sr. Legendary Members have helped countless people...

    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...
