Poorna express is one of those train having a infinite number of slacks :p.Apart from joke,travelled on this train from pune to madgaon.Coach:- 3rd ac tier.Date:-16/2/2019
Here are my reviews:-
Punctuality:-So the train is having a lot of slack overall,end to end.When i was onboard it was late by 2 hours at Miraj junction,but when it was at madgaon junction outer for platform clearance,it was 45 minutes before time.! So you can assume how slow the pune-satara-miraj-londa-madgaon route is.
one.In fact,sleepers was well maintained than my expectation,maybe since it's a weekly train lol.Apart from sleepers,Ac was as usual being cleaned regularly.
Occupancy:-Since it's a weekly train,rush is less.General coach of this train runs empty, enough to get a seat.Majority of the crowd deboards at madgaon junction.The fact is,majority of punekars avoid this train(too much slow)and instead hop into 22149/50 train via panvel to reach goa.
Railfanning and speed:-The main point.The excellent train for spotting the famous "Dudhsagar waterfalls".At londa junction,this train is having reversal and goes to castle rock.My sincere request to all of you,opt for G.S or sleeper to spot the waterfall.Ac attendants or TCs onboard generally dont allow people to open the door.While spotting,keep an eye on right side mainly.See pic below for more clarity.!
Avability:-Except season time, train runs empty normaly.Perfect time for timepassers, boring time for speed sters!
Any point is wrong/u wanna add? please comment!

I agree with you!
I had travelled on 11098 with college trip from MAO to Pune of around 30 students in Nov 16.
The train halted at Londa Jn for an hour Miraj Jn for nearly 2 hours.
But ppl enjoyed it as we got more time to spend together.
were some SL coaches which were as good as entirely empty.
If you are travelling alone or for some serious work this train can be nightmare.

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
