Travelled from YPR to Pune in Feb 2020 in Sleeper
Video playlist: click here
Cleanliness: Coach was clean until passengers made it dirty. Cleaners came to clean the coach at some point of time. Washroom were moderately clean.
Punctuality: Slack can cover some of the delay.
Food:
...
more...
No pantry is there. But there is plenty of food options available on train. Catering staff come to take orders for lunch and dinner, but those are overpriced. Bhelpuri is must try.
Ticket availability: YPR comes under RLWL, so limited tickets though i found my coach fairly empty upon boarding. Make sure you book tickets in advance.
Railfanning: Daylight journey between Yesvantpur and Belagavi. Fully diesel route. If your coach is closer to the loco, you are in for a feast. Be sure to grab a door after Alnavar, you will get curves every other minute till Belagavi. Unfortunately, you cannot capture Shindawane Ghats.
Safety: Not much. Anyone can go in and out anytime.
Few other points:
1. While I boarded from Yesvantpur, the TTE came to check ticket only after Belagavi
2. Train starts to fill after Davangere, Hubbali. But lots of unauthorized passengers start entering after Belagavi.
3. Be sure to put alarm if you plan to deboard at Pune. Due to slack, it has more possibilities to reach before time.

My suggestion is that even if its 100 WL in Sleeper, book it, you may even be upgraded to 3A as was my case. The train, especially 3A and 2A are mostly vacant and SL is used by local unreserved passengers especially from UBL to YPR. Elsewhere it's mostly vacant. I travelled from Dadar but I think it would work from other places as well as one of my co passenger boarded at DVG to YPR in Sleeper class and he had a waiting list of RLWL 29 in SL just before chart preperation but it got confirmed after the preperation of chart. You can also check the PNR of this train on 8 March where passengers traveling from Dadar to Tiruvannamalai got upgraded to 3A from SL ( Entry# 4250797 ). Hope this helps you.

I am very sorry to miss out on that, well I travelled from Dadar but I think it would work from other places as well as one of my co passenger boarded at DVG to YPR in Sleeper class and he had a waiting list of RLWL 29 in SL just before chart preperation but it got confirmed after the preperation of chart.

It might be true from UBL onwards but from DR its not valid for all seasons.

Most of the time TEN/PDY train is delayed at Tumkur and hence late at YPR.

I've taken this train from YPR to PDY many times after the extension and the train was delayed many times, once the train even arrived at the wrong platform and we had to huff and puff with luggage etc.

The breakfast on the train is good but you may take breakfast from the station at Ghatprabha at 8.00 am.
The lunch served is not good and you may eat lunch at Hubli instead from the platform at 12.30pm.
For evening meals you may eat at Arsikere as the veg Refreshment room is good opp the AC coaches at 18.05. The food at Tiptur (time - 18.36 ) is also good - idli dosa.
