It's a trail before introducing new train.. Glad to see Chichwad in the stop list.. Lots of people of Nanded and Parbhani area are living in this region. In the return direction, this station will help to stop train at least 20-25 in order to cover slack time.. :)

Hello Guys,
I want to share my travel experience with you all. Y'day I went to Nanded for my sister engagement. Since Nandigram and Devgiri were overcrowded I booked a ticket in Tirupati - Aurangabad Special Express. Initially, Railway staff were telling that train was 2 HRS late then they had added 30-30 mins extra and made announcement of delays. Finally, the train was arrived at Nanded at 8.30 PM. Till Parbhani Jn., train speed was awesome. After Parbhani Jn, this train was stopped almost at all station, and reached Jalna at 2 AM. And the height of patience was, it took 3 crossings at Jalna, Daund-Nanded Pass, Nandigram Ex, and Goods train. Left Jalna at 2.45 AM, stopped 45 mins.
and finally I've reached to Aurangabad at 4.00 AM. In between, this train allow Nanded-Pune Exp. to move ahead, if this train delays by 20 mins, then railway staff took chance to Ajanta to overtake this train. ....:D :D
Anyways, special hai bhai, Special should always gets special treatment..

Kindly update the following information:
Tapovan Express has RSA with Marathwada Express. Tapovan Express reaches Nanded at 6 PM. After doing the maintainace at Nanded, an empty rake is sent to Dharmabad. Marathwada Express reaches Dharmabad at 1 AM and reaches Nanded at 4 AM for maintainace purpose. Maintaince of that rake will be done by 10.00 AM and send it as Tapovan Exp. I saw pleanty times when Tapovan Express comes from yard on Platform No 4 to go towards CSTM, Railway staff rushes to remove the boards of coaches Marathwada Express and replace as Tapovan Express. So, this can not be coincidence. Afterall, Dharmabad do not have any rake maintainace facility. Geographically, Nanded is near to Dharmabad. So,
rake maintainace of Marathwada Express will be done at Nanded only, RSA with Tapovan Express

A'lly Tapovan has a Pantry Car, while Marathwada did not. On y'day, I saw Marathwada Express in which Pantry Car was being closed, i.e. unoperational.

Personally saw Marathwada express with a Pantry car at Aurangabad station.
The PC was not locked but was empty and didn't had any staff in it.

This train is acting like an white-elephant. See total no. of seats available on next Monday. This train was running with low occupancy in this summer also, when there was huge rush to other trains. It's better, if this train is extended to Aurangabad. Plenty of times, this train is used for Aurangabad-Tirupati Special Express. What say guys?

Re# 810147-11            Tags   Past Edits
I think this is not feasible solution. Because, SBC-NED reached PBN by 20.55, so it reaches AWB by 00.30. NED-SBC arrives at PBN 7.15, so we need to start from AWB near around 04.00. I don't think for such timings, it'll get good response from people. Ha, if timings of 16593/94 are revised, then it'll
be possible.

Sir, Let me correct you.. Jalna-Nagrsol Demu Passenger will goes to Maulali on every week for maintainace purpose. Since, Maulali only has infrastructure to do maintainace of DEMU. This passenger is the victim of lack of infrastructure facilities of Nanded Division. In last year, this train was coming daily to Purna Station just to refill Diesel and come back. Even Manmad is nearer than Purna, SCR continued to fill Diesel at Purna due to which it was running near 53,000 KM throughout year, without carrying any passengers, just for Diesel refilling at Purna and rake maintainace at Maulali. Few months before when Hon. Railway Minister Mr. Bansal had visited to Aurangabad. He came to know about this foolish activity, and given orders to Central Railways, Bhusawal Division, to allow this train to refill Diesel at Manmad JN. Now a days, this train is going to Manmad for refilling Diesel. After reaching...
Nagarsol, this train goes to Manmad and come back to Nagrsol by 5.30 PM.
