Though this train's last stop is Kolhapur, the same rake will go to Pandharpur as 11052 - SCSMT Kolhapur - Solapur Express with 50 minutes buffer at Kolhapur. So people can travel from Ballari, Hosapete, Koppal, Gadag, Hubballi, Dharwad, Belagavi to Pandharpur (on daily basis) by this train without need of changing train at Miraj.
But it will be a round about..BAY MRJ KOP MRJ PANP
Yes. It will be round about. In other routes, there will be many transfer points like Guntakal / Solapur / Kurduvadi or Gadag / Solapur / Kurduvadi
Aquaguard water shops - 2 Nos. are available on Platform no.1 at Gadag Junction Railway Station

It is, indeed, an interesting idea. There is also a restaurant in Bhopal called Shan-e-Bhopal which is modelled on a railway coach. Here is an article in HT click here
Yes it Awesome Shan-E-bhopal Restaurant.
It is World's First Broad Guage Rail Coach restaurant.
While we are on the subject of rail restaurants. Here is a restaurant in Prague which has a minature train running within it. click here
''Vytopna Restaurant at Wenceslas Square offers good food and drinks at reasonable prices. But its unique attraction is a 400m miniature railway which runs around the entire restaurant, and even down the centre of the tables you sit at.
This is no gimmick, the technology employed is complex. The restaurant's owners are passionate about traditional railways and have developed miniature train networks for years.''
If you, or others, have further interest. Here is a youtube on the same restaurant. You can have a better look of the working model of the minature railway which actually delivers drinks in glasses and collects the empty ones. Here it is, I hope it shows up correctly: click here
Indian Railways is seeking partners for converting old MG Palace on Wheels coaches into restaurants. Here is my blog on it: /blog/post/2935516
Another restaurant in a rail coach has opened in Mumbai in February 2017 click here
I was surfing on the net and found out that there are many railway coach restaurants in England. Here is one: click here
This was established in 1985 and is certainly older than the Bhopal one. It even has coaches which have rooms for staying
Now you made me think. I have not checked that. Now that you mention it, it could very well be Standard Gauge
There would be other older rail restaurant. But as far as I know Shaan e Bhopal is the World's first BG Rail Coach Restaurant.click here
Sorry, I forgot that UK has standard gauge and in all probability the railway coach restaurants are in standard gauge coaches.
Even there was a planning to open one at Indore too. Even the coach had arrived, but dont know what happened and the work did not get Furthur done.
Pic of Coach, that was proposed to be used.
Location: Near Laalbaug, Indore (Hardly 700 meters from my cousin's home)
Terminal 10 Restraurant Indore.
You got me interested and I googled. This HT dated 2015 says there was plan for one in both Indore and Jabalpur. www.hindustantimes.com/indore/soon-a-rail-coach-re staurant-to-be-opened-in-indore/story-qQzy6hXXtOS9 72WAcqsgpM.html . Wonder why they did not open?
Just had a word woth my cousin. He said that work is going on. Platform and shed has been constructed. But there is some conflict of Location. Planning of shifting it into Atal Park, Indore is going on, to attract more people. Which has less chance in current location, so work is on hold temporarily.
It is being demolished today as a part of drive against illegal construction after the Kamala Mills fire accident couple of days ago.
what is being Demolished and where?
pls refer /blog/post/2929958
In this entry, there is a news link. In the news Link, a news report about opening of 'Pravas' a railway-themed restaurant in Mumbai is present. This restaurant Pravas is being demolished today. As I type this, I am looking at the JCB machines razing down the two 'coaches' of Pravas restaurant (It is located in the same commercial compound where my office is located (Kamala Mills Compound)
Rather unfortunate, but then rules should not have been flouted.Seeing two coaches being demolished is not a nice sight
Pravas' coaches were not real IR / ICF coaches (they didnt buy old condemned coaches and convert them to restaurant. They were locally fabricated by some contractor and given the shape and look of railway coaches.
I had not realised that the restaurant was housed in a ''fabricated'' coach. Thanks for your information
