FOOD : This train really deserves "The Food King" tag. Wide variety of dishes right from Sheera-Upama to Chi. Lollipop are available which are freshly prepared. Food price is slightly costlier but it is OK as you get outstanding food quality. MUST TRY DISHES : Onion Uttappa, Methi Kabab and for Non-Veg lovers Chi. Biryani and Chi. Lollipop are good enough. You even get fresh fruits.
BEST TIME TO TRAVEL : June - September for Monsoons Scenery as this train covers the Konkan belt in daylight and April/May for Alphonso Mangoes & other tourist places to visit throughout Konkan region.
SHOULD TAKE THIS TRAIN ? : Those who are on vacation and have a lot of time to spend on train journey as this train generally reaches late by 1.5-3 hours at its destination stations. So if you are in a hurry/work/frequent traveler, you can avoid this train. In Ganpati/Diwali/April-May seasons, this train is packed.
IN WHICH COACH TO BOOK TICKETS ? : All the ICF Rakes used for this train are now quite old and a bit dirty as the rake is immediately changed from KonkanKanya(Up) to Mandovi(Down) although cleaning is done. You can book AC Lower/Side Lower berth to have a window. You can even take 2S Window seat and can avoid SL coach as anyway in its daytime journey you don't get to sleep. SL coaches are used as 2S where 4 passengers are allotted one lower berth to sit and Upper berths remain unused or used by WL passengers.
In some parts between Mangaon and Khed this train has high speed above 100kmph such that the coaches tend to vibrate a lot. But the train is anyway late.

However, "eligibility" does NOT always mean...

    @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...

The voluntarily posted Blogs, Train/Station Tips, Train/Station Pics, Polls, Train TTs, PNRs, etc. comprise the permanent publicly viewable and searchable repository of IRI. A PUBLIC info website is unlike WhatsApp, FaceBook, Instagram, etc. where people post personal pics and other stuff, which CAN...
