Train name:-Lokmanya tilak terminus-madgaon double decker express
Train no:-11085/86
I travelled in this train recently,and found that this train is one of the 'Best' train in Konkan railway for railfanning.Apart from that,i would like to tell about the punctuality/Cleanliness/Food/comfort etc.
excellent,well maintained train.Sweepers,toilet cleaner staffs are there and they regulary clean the train.
Punctuality is somewhere this train lacks.If u r a lucky person,U would arrive madgaon as much as 15 mins earlier.Still,this train has slack(extra time).Meaning thzt even if train reaches Karmali reaches 2 hours late(eg),still it will reach madgaon ontime else 10/15 mins late.
Like any other dd/non dd exp,comfort level is low and those who like sleeping better to take sleeper train as seating in one stretch upto madgaon can give u back pains,leg pain etc.
Food is available,right from veg biryani,chicken biryani to Veg cutlet,upma etc.
If u r a railfan enthusiast,this train is one the best train for u,as this train gets crossed every time for some important trains like tvc raj/kesk/ten-hapa/mandovi etc.
Overall a good train.If any point is wrong or u wanna add,please comment. :)

They should start this train from Dadar, at around 06 am & follow Jan Shatabdi, reach madgaon around 3pm. There will be many passengers interested to travel by this train. The present Timing & starting point is not suitable to majority of passengers.

There is a reason why C.R can't start this train from dadar.The reason is that Post acfictation in june 2015,there have been height issues in cst-cla stretch,like some bridges are very low between roof top and ohe wire,which is y they can't run from dadar.Since from ltt,there is no height restriction they run from ltt only.When Mumbai was under dc,they run cst-mao dd ganpati special back in aug-sept 2015.Talking about interest to travel in dd? see,towards mao,half of the crowd gets empty at ratnagiri and at madgaon,u will see mere 20-40 people there.Only towards mumbai side this train gets full.
Talking about timing this is the best slot given to dd as js goes far away this train get full clearance. :)

Travelled yesterday from Panvel to Madgaon.Here are my reviews about this train
Maintainence/Cleanliness:-Good condition.Staffs do their best to clean it.Toilet also was in good condition.
Catering:-No doubt why it is known as 'Foodie king'.Ranging from Chicken biryani to Chicken Lollipop and Veg biryani to Veg manchurian,this train never disappoints as Food staffs will continously be there to serve you.Be sure to eat more!
advantage of this train.One of the best trains for railfanning as it covers almost KR(Till mao-mandovi's last stop) in broad daylight.
Punctuality:-Very very poor.Towards Madgaon side,KR trolls this train a lot.Generally after Khed,train gets looped at many stations for crossing.If luck,train will cover up the delay.But if not,and if u r travelling all the way to mao,then get ready for a delay upto 2 to 2.30 hrs late(maybe more!)
Overall,good train.For food lovers and RF,,try this train.For those who maintain their work routine time to time,then dont take this train or take this train as backup in case u didnt get any ticket.
Thats all,if any point is wrong or missing,please let me know! :)

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
