There have been reports in Solapur newspapers recently about this train getting extension to Gadag, which will be notified soon. I personally feel that this is a good move, by not keeping train idle & most importantly benefiting many people around Solapur.
There is a genuine worry for Solapur that they might not be able to get berth/ seat easily. I agree. I have travelled in this train about 4 times from Solapur to Mumbai, and have seen occupancy to the extent of 50-80% from Solapur itself, which gets filled more at Kurduwadi, but of course, depending upon season.
firmly believe that this concern can be easily overcome or lessened, if Railways could add an additional 5-6 sleeper coaches & a couple of GEN coaches & make it a 20 coacher and then extend it to Gadag. There is no doubt that Bijapur,Bagalkot, Gadag region requires a proper direct overnight connectivity to Mumbai, even though the demand might be less or distributed over other trains.
Secondly, I also feel that whenever extension happens, this superfast should not become mail/passenger type after Solapur towards Gadag. People should reach destinations fast and hassle free. If it becomes slow, the rake turnaround time is affected which may lead to no proper maintenance.

Indeed, a good one. The timings can be +/- here & there, but overall correct. The main thing is add coaches & extend it to benefit one & all. Its a win win thing for Solapur & around. Actually, the extension is soon to happen, but IR should augment the coaches before.

Yup for this service IR cancelling SUR UBL SUR ICE and Extended train run on this ICE slot regarding Its service to solapur it will be good one as present one have less coaches if Coaches added to 20 to 22 and extended means good one for SUR BJP BGK GDG BAY ppl also. Berths can be booked online so solapur not going to loose anything in this I think

Yes adding coaches is more important while extending, small train will not make sense to extend. Once extended, rakes of Ubl Ice can be used for Kop/Pune Ice
