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 time 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
I used to travel in this train almost a decade ago. I do not even remember whether catering was available, THEN. Now, that IRI mentions that catering is available, I would like to know when going from SBC to BGM / MRJ / KOP is catering available after UBL?
I am asking this as I had a very BAD experience perhaps somewhere in between 1998 - 2000 - I was travelling from SBC to BGM and the journey upto DWR was as usual, but once our train crossed Alnavar (LWR)
best train tip read ever..with so much elucidation. Hats off!
Thanks. But in that case doesn't the tip deserve a GREAT? :) Thanks again.
Unfortunately only green can be given , otherwise it eq to 10 greats!
Thanks for educating me. I grew a bit greedy I guess. Sorry!
An eye opener for many people... but even on Mumbai-Howrah trunk route I always carry dry foods & water as precaution, as I too suffered when I was small as mere 8 yrs old in Howrah-Dadar Special train which was struck for good 3-4 hrs for some track related reason...
Thanks. But how old (young) are you now? So that I can manage to calculate the problem you faced in HWH-Dadar Spl exp. :)

Almost nothing till Londa.
Tea/Coffee at Dharwad and some vendors selling the Peda.
Londa has things to offer, the Vada Pav and Kandha wada being the most common. The main PF, Pf1 that is, has about 3-4 stalls where things like Idlies are available. You'll have to rush to these stalls as soon as the train stops at the PF.
BGM has everything. Kunda, Idly Wadas (not as good as in UBL), Wada Paav, Egg Omlets, etc. Many Engineering students from KLE Engg college and GIT Engg college of BGM come here to savour EGG omlets, Bhurji, Half-boiled (Bull's eye) etc between 12 midnight and 3 a.m. - when all restaurants are closed and these hungry-guts need to cool down their hunger. And I do not want to forget to mention here that ADRAK ki CHAAI is also available inside and also outside of the BGM STN.
You are telling 15 years old story.The Belgaum is now one of the top 10 stations of SWR.I have travelled more stations in SWR but belgaum is best.
Don't worry about food .Login to yatracgef.com and enter your pnr,select menu and order yummy and delicious food which I have tasted.
I was in Belgaum recently. The food options is not good even now. Regarding yatrachef the minimum order for Belgaum is Rs 180 which I think is not good for single travelers.
Catering is available at Londa Junction
I am told Upma (Uppittu in Kannada) sold at Londa Railway station (Londa Jn. is on Hubli Belgaum Line with a Branch Line towards Madgaon/Vasco) is very famous. Those travelling/getting down at Londa Railway station may taste this and give their feed back. Thanks in advance.
Don't know about upma but have tasted vadapav at Londa at evening taste was always good.
Nandini milk parlour is available on platform no.1. Aquaguard water shop is available just beside this shop.

Awesome yawning pic bro. I think he drunk more Milk so getting sleepy.. lol
You should have tried a glass of Lassi😝
Then he might have not took pics of Post dharwad on his journey ha ha.lol
This picture was captured from moving train. There was no need to get down here as we had food from home and purchased water from Hubballi.
hhm thats good but he just saying you would had a sip of lassi when anyhow your train had some haltage here..but usually i like home food like you..
There was no enough time for buying. Train halted for less time at Dharwad.
