Mar 19 2017 (12:55)   UD/Udupi (2 PFs)

Udupi Station has only some light refreshment stalls on PF 1. PF2 has only a small strip of shelter like a village R.S.
The station is slightly on an elevated level. There is an elevator to reach the car park from just outside PF 1.
A small budget lodge and an eatery is there just behind tourist car park. Udupi city centre is about 4 kms from the station and Udupi-Manipal highway is about half a km away.
Prepaid
...
more...
auto facility seems to be there, although I am not sure if it functions effectively.
The display of coach position is interesting at the notice board. It does not show position of coaches from engine and direction. Instead it shows a coach will stop at the number where it is displayed. For example in our train 22475, engine was at number 24 on the platform, where it stopped. Our coach was 10th from engine. The display notice mentioned A1 would be where 14 number is on the platform. Bit confusing for non regular passengers.
There are just one or two porters at the station who normally show up only before a train is scheduled to arrive. Unless, we request the station staff to call him over his cell phone.

Wow, looks like railways should give a 5 minute halt at UD to relish tasty food!!! I think we both are talking about same stall :) That day he had Neer dosa with kuruma, samosa etc.

67260 continues to RJY as 67261 after halting for just 10 mins(official TT) at BZA(It has RSA).
Popularly known as 'Ongole Bandi'.
Train is generally stopped at TDD for few minutes. People who want to go to toilets or fill water can use this halt time.

The coach display boards are activated only on PF3, that too only for express trains. For the rest of the (passenger) trains, it is better to go towards the far end of BZA side.

I had similar experience in 12628 ; DD-SBC route.
It was 2A coach A2 and toilets were really disgusting. Taps were faulty and no water supply in A1 coach toilets.
It seems that this legendary train is loosing its reputation and charm

The food @ MAQ-Mangalore Central sucks. Food is available only on PF#1.
There's hardly anything for the vegetarians. If brave enough you can try the rock-hard idlys.
If you are heading to Bangalore by 16518/16524 from PF#3, make sure to buy something @ PF#1.

What else you can expect? It's always a better idea to either carry home foods or survive on cookies, cakes, than to eat station, train foods & become ill.
