In the past,i have travelled in pune-miraj section and vice versa 2-3 times,but either i have travelled in bus or took a train like sahyadri which covers the section in night,so this time i took the 11029 mumbai kolhapur "koyna" express from pune upto miraj junction.The only train from mumbai side to cover the entire pune-miraj section in almost daylight.
Travelled on 19/3/19.Coach:-C1 1999 made here are my reviews.
Maintainence:-Good one.Toilets were clean and seats were having enough comfort for a nap!
train got emptied at pune junction,and thereafter only 30-35 people were there in C1 coach.By the time train reached sangli,hardly people were seen.General coach and 2s were packed though,not to full atleast.
Speed:-A bit crawler train,having a good amount of slack.Dont worry about its punctuality,it will be cover up the lost time.Although,the average delay of this train is 30 minutes(to my observation).
Railfanning:-Brilliant! Covers the famous "Shindwane ghats" and "Daundaj curve" in broad daylight.Also,stops at certain stations for crossing.Try not to miss the daundaj curve!
Avability:-Seats are normally avaible between pune and kolhapur.Mumbai-pune bit difficult.
Food:-Vendors regularly ply and they sell upma,lassi,chai,and lot more.Suggestion to take pack food from pune itself.
Any point is missing/wrong/Add? please please comment! :)
