How to reach nashik faster from pune in 5:30 hours
At present there is only one train between pune and nashik but in the morning there is no train between pune and nashik that's why here are tips for reaching nashik in less time
1.take 11010 Sinhagad Express from pune at 6:10 AM
2.Get down at Kalyan Junction 8:45 AM
Buffer Time is too Less i feel
How much shuffling in terms of PFs?
Which class of Tkt? or GS?
Any distance restrictions in Pushpak?
pushpak allows bookings from kyn to nk
I travelled using General ticket
that day Sinhagad arrived on PF 5
Then it's well and Good, Pushpak would be at Adjacent PF Only
Usually Sinhagad Arrives at PF7, But 25-30Mins TAT is 2 Less I Feel
hmm..yes..if sinhagad arrive ontime then we can travel like this
but CR can't able to run Pune Nashik ICE or mail/Express because of traffic in morning time
Sinhagad,Nanded Panvel, deccan queen,sahyadri,pragati,
Also there is freight traffic if it would go via panvel
It can be used if its railfan with no luggage and physically fit.
Else its hassle for short distance,
Generally Sinhagad wd be on time at KYN.
If you are traveling from Pune to Ratlam/Udaipur and you ticket is in waiting list, then check booking from Miraj Junction (MRJ) to your destination, there are more chances that you will get confirm ticket with less fare (due to dynamic fare).
e.g. For this Diwali Pune to Ratlam is Waiting List 22 (Fare - 1855) while that from Miraj is Available 162 (Fare - 1500).
Perks of having Flexi Fare where not required....
Humsafar with avg of 53kmph and on the top of it Dynamic fare, not at all justifies.
Now a days Humsafars are getting good patronage.
Yes, but Dynamic pricing need to be removed from Humsafars.
If you want to reach Bhopal in time, then don't prefer this train. Instead go for Pune - Habibganj Hamsafar.
This Special always runs late.. and have no schedule if delayed..
What you say maybe true. But the two trains run on different days of the week, so the day of departure has to be convenient to the traveller. If you travel by Third AC, it is okay as both trains have it. But sleeper class is available only on 01663
Secondly, how are u assured of punctuality of Pune HBJ HS??
Both run on Sunday (for PUNE-HBJ sector).
As it is using Hawrah Duranto & Nagpur AC Express slot.. it will run on time till Bhusaval for sure..
While this special is delayed in it's Bhopal - Dharwad journey itself, so due to less TAT at Dharwad it will keep on rescheduling..
Yeah I had very horrible experience with this special travelled thrice from Pune to HBJ n all time it reached HBJ with huge 8 hours delay.
This train top in delay in its own sector (Pune - HBJ).
Sorry, I gave wrong information on the days of departure
First run was 45 minutes late!!!
