Sharing my experience of the train..
Train arrives at around 5:20 am on platform No. 5 and starts at the right time. Overall speed is very impressive and the staff treat you very well. Around 7:00 am they serve you with tea & biscuits and newspaper. They give you hot water thermas and tea bags, sugar, milk pouches. At around 8:30 before arriving Solapur, the breakfast is served which is very tasty. Everyday the menu is changed. At around 11:15, they serve you with Tomato Shorba with bread sticks as starter. At around 12:00 pm, lunch is served which is very tasty. Chapatis are total is good. Lunch includes, rice / pulao, 2 chapatis, dal, mix veg / paneer, pickle and
curd. Every window seat has charging point. The seats are not that conformtable as they are small and we cant have food at ease. But the cabin is well insulated and we dont hear the outside noise. The train is well on time at Secunderabad station. Overall experience is very good travelling and we can feel the premiumness of it.
Just 1 thing to remember...pls dont give any tips to the waiter as tip cost is already included in our ticket. Waiters come and ask about ₹ 50 - 100 as tips from each passenger.

DQ's loco which used to be Kalyan WCAM 3 has been downgraded to WCAM 2P. The train reaches Dadar normally at 10:15 am and CSTM at 10:30 am. Before it used to get preference over CR locals. But now it becomes late as this train doesnt get any preference and locals are given priorty.

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    -@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,...
