Recently travelled from Lpi to Pune . Please find my observations .
Loco :- A beautiful BZA wap 4 hauled from BZA to Wadi , Post Wadi a handsome KYN Monster EMD(WDP 4D) hauled .
Hygiene :- Washrooms and sleeper compartment were clean . Didn't travel in AC so can't comment .
Railfanning :- Awesome overtake by Pune Shatabdi , feels like a
thunder passing through ., we overtook Jayanti janata in Wadi but it overtook this train past Kalaburagi . Actually this train was halted in a small station past Kalaburagi for more than 1 hour 30 minutes and there were few crossings I guess one was Utkrisht livery Udyan and few others .
Speed:- Was running with avg speed till Solapur and we reached around 1 hour plus late in Solapur and another 15 minute + halt there and I thought that I will reach pune late but KYN EMD monster showed pure aggression and if i am not wrong the train was running continuously 100+ in most of the Solapur Pune section and we reached Pune at right time .
Food :- This train doesn't have a pantry I suggest get some snacks in Wadi or Kalaburagi and order online for food in Solapur .
I observed few Cons in my journey
Unreserved Passengers :- Lots of unreserved passengers from SC to Kalaburagi they just occupy seats and talk very loudly and so ill mannered .
Beggars/Transgenders :- Encountered a lot of transgenders demanding money and i felt bad .
Overall the train is excellent with few stops and only con is lots of unreserved passengers boarding sleeper coaches and transgenders/beggars so i feel bit uneasy about the safety aspect .


ONLY COVID-19 Specials are running.
As Corona cases are increasing rapidly, Members are advised to TAKE extra CARE these days.
1. AVOID going outdoors even if lockdown is easing.
2. ALWAYS wear a MASK when OUTDOORS.
3. Wash hands frequently. Do NOT touch your face.
