Sharing my personal experience about this train :
I travelled from Pune-Solapur and back from Solapur-Pune on 13/9/2014. The LHB coaches were very well maintained. The toilets were clean too.
The train started bang on time at 05.50am from Pune and with a couple of stoppages for crossings, it reached Solapur only 5-10 minutes late than the scheduled arrival time. We were first served with Tea/ Coffee and Breakfast later which included Veg cutlets, Bread slices, butter sachets, etc. The food quality was good.
the return journey, 12026 reached Solapur at around 19.50 (15 minutes late) and departed at 20.00pm. The return journey was almost a non-stop journey with only a single stop for crossing that too just before Daund. The train reached Pune at sharp 11.15pm. Regarding the food served, we were first welcomed with Tomato Soup and Bread Sticks. Later, dinner was served which included 3 Rotis, Mutter Paneer, Dal, Rice, Curd, Pickle, Gulab Jamun. I would like to mention that quality of the dinner was really nice. I have travelled multiple times in this train and the food was terrible back then. But, after travelling yesterday, I can say that this is a HUGE IMPROVEMENT.
Overall it was a nice experience with the only Shatabdi of Pune.
Hope this helps to people who wish to opt for this train for their travel.

Indiarailinfo is now forcing me to download a Firefox App to be able to get fare/seat availability information. The app is very poorly designed and occupies a whole lot of browser real estate. But disabling the app means I can no longer check fare/availability.
I do not think IndiaRailInfo should force its users to download and use its app. Atleast the app should be minimally invasive - read, should hide in a corner and be invoked when needed - if it is compulsory to install the app.
Thoughts of other users are

In that case, kindly delete all the temporary files/cookies, delete the IRI extension, reinstall it, log out of IRI and log in again!!

Also why is it that the window for downloading extension says v4.70 and chrome shows v4.71 ? Can you please see if you get v4.71 after clicking "Update Extensions" in GC.

Re# 306257-13            Tags   Past Edits
By moderator Sir:
1. Pick a train.
2. Go to its individual train page on IRI, and see if you get its availability.
3. If not, then go directly to the official site and type in the exact same train, station, date, etc., and see if you are able to check availability directly.
is an issue, only if you are able to see the availability, etc. directly from the official site, but not through the Chrome app.
As remarked before, the official site itself is down sometimes, or unavailable to your area. Once again, there is an issue only if you ARE able to see directly on the official site, but are NOT able to see it thru the Chrome app.

Yes, I am able to see availability through official site but not through the Chrome app.So there is definitely an issue with the app.
I have already uninstalled and reinstalled the app, cleared all browser history but nothing is working.
Also another thing....why my chrome app shows v4.71 whereas the site says "...Download v4.70..." ?
