PNR No: 8362406632.
Date of Journey: 14-Dec-2011
Class: AC 1st Class - 1A
1: PQWL 1/   PQWL 1 0000
Kindly give me information whether this will be confirmed or not. Also how much luggage can I take in 1AC Chair Car in this train, is there any dimension for it.
Reservation in FC in Gujarat express is also available on the same day on the same route, so should I take that ticket or wait for confirmation of shatabdi ticket.
I would prefer to travel by shatabdi as it is better train.
Thanks in advance.

The train starts from Bandra terminus and stops at Borivili for 2 minutes only. Further as Sri. Manoj Garhwal has informed Bandra is nearer to Airport. Naturally it is advisable to board the train at the starting station with all the heavy luggages.

Mr Vinod Singh ji,
It is very much convenient for you to board this train from Bandra Terminus, especially in view of your bulky luggage.
Happy journey.

What happens if the first blogger has booked the ticket from Borivali?

It is not a big problem. The distance involved is too short. The TTE may not turn up till the train leaves Borivili. But better honest way is to buy open tickets from Bandra to Borivili before boarding the train and offer to pay the difference in fare between the sitting class and 2A class.
Or it can be explained to the TTE and if demanded, the fare from Bandra to Borivili can be paid in cash and a receipt taken from TTE.
