Guys, does this station have any waiting room where I can freshen up a bit? Also would I get any taxi or Autorickshaw early in the morning.

After alighting from CSTM HYB exp , wait for some time and board the 06:10 am departing mmts to Secunderabad.
This is Falaknuma bound MMTS which goes via Secunderabad station. Hardly 15 minutes is taken. It departs from Pf 1 of Begumpet.
There is no Waiting room at Begumpet. But good amount of seats are available on Pf. Water cooler is also present. You can easily wait at Begumpet Pf.
Bus is there but you have to go to bus stop which is near the flyover. But i would suggest , take MMTS , its quicker and cheaper.

Yep...actually its a Suburban station , not a full fledged station.
This station is used by long journey Lingampalli areas passengers to take MMTS and also as the Change over point for Hyderabad to Secunderabad stations.

Tea sellers do roam on the Pf...But packaged Water bottles are not available.
Instead there are Working Water coolers present of Pf 1 near the GRP booth. Fill your empty bottle from there.
PS: When i was last time present at BMT, cooler was there and was giving chilled purified water. But i can't guarantee whether its working at present or not.

Nice capture ! Btw it gets GY WDP4d and dead GY/GTL ALCO between TPTY and GY. The EMD gets detached at GY and the ALCO takes over till UBL. I saw it with GY WDP-4D #40104 and this same Kingfisher livery GY WDM-3A #16474R on Feb 19 when I was travelling by 12163. Also on Oct 2 last year I saw 57273 at GY with GY WDP4D and dead GTL WDM-3D #11337 when I was travelling by 12164.
