This was my second visit in last 6 months. The road condition after a taking a left turn to Pethnaka was very bad and took us long time to reach due to this. Earlier when I visited in June the road was very good. One must check the road condition before travelling.
It's a good train and you can have a nice nap in this train. It is good as compared to other trains. We can have lots of food on the way which is the best part of this train journey and if you are with your friends then it will be a memorial journey. Enjoy going to Pune by this train. Take care and have a happy journey!
