Train name:-Lokmanya tilak terminus-madgaon double decker express
Train no:-11085/86
I travelled in this train recently,and found that this train is one of the 'Best' train in Konkan railway for railfanning.Apart from that,i would like to tell about the punctuality/Cleanliness/Food/comfort etc.
1)Cleanliness
An
...
more...
excellent,well maintained train.Sweepers,toilet cleaner staffs are there and they regulary clean the train.
2)Punctuality
Punctuality is somewhere this train lacks.If u r a lucky person,U would arrive madgaon as much as 15 mins earlier.Still,this train has slack(extra time).Meaning thzt even if train reaches Karmali reaches 2 hours late(eg),still it will reach madgaon ontime else 10/15 mins late.
3)Comfort
Like any other dd/non dd exp,comfort level is low and those who like sleeping better to take sleeper train as seating in one stretch upto madgaon can give u back pains,leg pain etc.
4)Food
Food is available,right from veg biryani,chicken biryani to Veg cutlet,upma etc.
5)Railfanning
If u r a railfan enthusiast,this train is one the best train for u,as this train gets crossed every time for some important trains like tvc raj/kesk/ten-hapa/mandovi etc.
Overall a good train.If any point is wrong or u wanna add,please comment. :)

They should start this train from Dadar, at around 06 am & follow Jan Shatabdi, reach madgaon around 3pm. There will be many passengers interested to travel by this train. The present Timing & starting point is not suitable to majority of passengers.

There is a reason why C.R can't start this train from dadar.The reason is that Post acfictation in june 2015,there have been height issues in cst-cla stretch,like some bridges are very low between roof top and ohe wire,which is y they can't run from dadar.Since from ltt,there is no height restriction they run from ltt only.When Mumbai was under dc,they run cst-mao dd ganpati special back in aug-sept 2015.Talking about interest to travel in dd? see,towards mao,half of the crowd gets empty at ratnagiri and at madgaon,u will see mere 20-40 people there.Only towards mumbai side this train gets full.
Talking about timing this is the best slot given to dd as js goes far away this train get full clearance. :)
