This train is the best to travel on the Mumbai - Howrah route.
The pantry food is good too and the quantity is sufficient as well. Shortly before Kalyan evening snacks are served, which consist of a sandwich, frooti, roasted peanuts and a sweet. Then at igatpuri, soup and breadsticks are served and finally dinner is served at around manmad; and ice cream is given after a while. This trip was limited upto nagpur so can only give those updates. Posting some pics herewith

Train name:-Lokmanya tilak terminus-madgaon double decker express
Train no:-11085/86
I travelled in this train recently,and found that this train is one of the 'Best' train in Konkan railway for railfanning.Apart from that,i would like to tell about the punctuality/Cleanliness/Food/comfort etc.
1)Cleanliness
An
...

excellent,well maintained train.Sweepers,toilet cleaner staffs are there and they regulary clean the train.
2)Punctuality
Punctuality is somewhere this train lacks.If u r a lucky person,U would arrive madgaon as much as 15 mins earlier.Still,this train has slack(extra time).Meaning thzt even if train reaches Karmali reaches 2 hours late(eg),still it will reach madgaon ontime else 10/15 mins late.
3)Comfort
Like any other dd/non dd exp,comfort level is low and those who like sleeping better to take sleeper train as seating in one stretch upto madgaon can give u back pains,leg pain etc.
4)Food
Food is available,right from veg biryani,chicken biryani to Veg cutlet,upma etc.
5)Railfanning
If u r a railfan enthusiast,this train is one the best train for u,as this train gets crossed every time for some important trains like tvc raj/kesk/ten-hapa/mandovi etc.
Overall a good train.If any point is wrong or u wanna add,please comment. :)

They should start this train from Dadar, at around 06 am & follow Jan Shatabdi, reach madgaon around 3pm. There will be many passengers interested to travel by this train. The present Timing & starting point is not suitable to majority of passengers.

There is a reason why C.R can't start this train from dadar.The reason is that Post acfictation in june 2015,there have been height issues in cst-cla stretch,like some bridges are very low between roof top and ohe wire,which is y they can't run from dadar.Since from ltt,there is no height restriction they run from ltt only.When Mumbai was under dc,they run cst-mao dd ganpati special back in aug-sept 2015.Talking about interest to travel in dd? see,towards mao,half of the crowd gets empty at ratnagiri and at madgaon,u will see mere 20-40 people there.Only towards mumbai side this train gets full.
Talking about timing this is the best slot given to dd as js goes far away this train get full clearance. :)

Please avoid this train, as this is not getting any respect at any of the stations. No pantry then also never placed at platform 1 of any stations. Getting food is also so difficult.

Heard So Much About Darjeeling Mail Over A Decade. Finally Had The Privilege By The Same On 2nd Feb. I Must Say The Train Is Over Hyped.
PROS:
1. Cleanliness Was Impeccable
2. Bedding Provided Was Neat & Clean, Well Washed & Ironed
CONS:

1. There Ain't Any Pantry Car In The Train. Hence, A Cup Of Coffee Charged Here Is INR 15/-. And Bread-Omletter [ Not Even Butter] Is Charged INR 40/- . Simply Loot Business. One Doesn't Have Any Other Option Than Having Such Pathetic Food On A Higher Price
2. Train Reached NJP 2 Hours Late
Early In The Morning We Realized There Is No Water Supply In Wash Basins & Wash Rooms
Next Time I Travel To NJP , I'll Probably Take Kamrup Exp

Cleanliness is good in sleeper class but in one of the trips I found tea spilled on the table had not been cleaned. OBHS staff is good, cleaned the table upon request.
.
Punctuality is good upto Akola/Badnera, cannot tell about the remaining route.

for railfanning, covers Nashik-Bhusawal section in daylight and sometimes overtakes 12542. But in my previous trip, RPF had closed all the doors as soon as the train left Nashik, so no doorplating :(
.
Security is not a concern as there is not much rush and constant patrolling by RPF personnel ensures safety.
.
Have not tried food in this train, so cannot comment on it. Fellow passengers ordered food and they said the taste was okay, not too good not too bad, rates were reasonable.

I've been travelling in 06592 (HSRA - YPR Passenger) for last few days. The train does stop at BLRR. There is a two wheeler shed where the vehicles can be parked at Rs.350 per month. Alternatively, there are autos which would be available only during the train arrival times. The autos should be shared with 3 other people (3 in the back and one in the front with the driver) @ Rs.20 per person. The drop point of auto is at the outer ring road (on the underpass bridge near JP Morgan - hardly 2 Kms). Please be noted that you need to rush to catch the auto as soon as you get down from the train. Else you may have to wait for more time to get an auto.

returning to Hosur, you need to get down at JP Morgan stop and catch an auto @ Rs.50 (no shared Auto is available to BLRR).
Hope this information would be helpful.

Net speed avg....but few times, it is very good. If u use it at unusual slots (eg late night or early morning) u can expect a very good speed in general
