Nov 11 2013 (08:59)   MMR/Manmad Junction (6 PFs)

Manmad is a major Junction Point for Kalyan / Nanded / Daund / Bhusaval, and may well be termed as a treasure house for Railfans
.
> It is a loco changeover point; trains from and to NED / DD / PUNE change locos from diesel to electric and vice versa here. A good location to spot various locos from different sheds of IR, popular being MLY / GY / KYN / ET / BSL / PUNE / GY
.
...
more...

In the pit-line adjacent to PF-1, electric locos are parked. PF-1 is on the extreme left while moving from Manmad to Bhusaval.
.
At the outer of both ends of the station, one can see electric as well diesel locos parked freely in the pit and loop lines.
.
Manmad has a huge Food Corporation of India godown and also the refineries of IOCL, BPCL and HPCL. Owing to this, one can spot freights (BCNA / BTPN / BTPGLN) loaded with foodgrains and oil, hauled by WDG-3A/4 and also WAG-5/7/9 of various sheds across India.
.
Being a major junction, there is a considerable presence of RPFs around the station and movement of railway officers and staff. So RFs need to take extra care while photography.
.
There is a road overbridge before you enter MMR from BSL side, you can stand on that bridge and take aerial view without the risk of being caught. One more location is the parallel road that runs beside the tracks from PF-1 side towards BSL.

While arriving into Katni from Jabalpur Side, there is a siding / pit-line on the left most side of PF-1. If you are lucky, you can spot some 4-5 electric locos parked one behind other in a long queue (WAM-4/WAP-4/WAG-5/7). So if your train arrives on PF-1/2 and halts for 5-10 mins., do get down for good clicks of the same.

Naivedyam Restaurant is a highly popular and reputed name in Nagpur, serving PURE VEG food since 1979. If passing through NGP, do taste the food from the food kiosk situated at BSL end of PF-2/3. Open from 6 am to 12 midnight. They serve a variety of food, North Indian, South Indian, Thalis, snacks, beverages, etc. It is much better than Pantry food and Comesum. They even deliver to your seat.
.
Tel Nos: 9326881014, 9326881018, 0712-3201599.

Yes why not? But since you have already paid for it in the ticket fare, why wasting money again for food outside?
