The train normally stop at Hafizpet (2nd line) before scheduled stops BMT and SC. People from Hitech City and nearby areas can deboard and save their time. BE CAREFUL as the train is not taken on any platform at HFZ.

Is this a tip? Tresspassing is not only dangerous but also punishable. Encouraging such type of activities should be kept away from IRI.

This train always reaches Wadi before time irrespective of the delay at Secunderabad.
The crew takes it's own time in changing at Secunderabad and the train sometimes halts at Secunderabad for around 1 hour.
Quite many berths get vacated at Pune and passengers with general tickets board at Pune for travelling to Mumbai.
The food is good especially the Egg curry meals
...
more...
which isreasonably priced too.

It's even a good option for travelling to Pune from Secunderabad as the journey is covered during daytime and you reach Pune on schedule.

Whenever I travel to Mumbai, I take Konark as it drops you at Dadar early morning and I can easily take locals towards Borivali without much crowd to handle.

Any WL from Pune to Mumbai gets confirmed during charting of source station as many passengers have booking only till Pune. Hence confidently go for any WL, just ensure to book before charting of source station.

Now that multiple trains have been tagged together, adding another related tip for all these trains. One can buy general ticket from Pune to Mumbai and approach the TTE for a berth. Almost 100% you will get berth.

Even people who can reply should be able to tag, at least for tips.
Or a request should be sent automatically to original blogger.

In Konark express (11020), I have found this travel tip correct. There are many people traveling from Bhubaneswar, Visakapatnam, Secundrabad all are getting down at Pune. So between Pune and CSTM there are lot of seats are empty.

To avoid multiple / duplicate travel tips of same nature, can IRI devise Dropdown menu for Travel tips ?
If it is done many usuers need not 'read' multiple blogs tool !

The food standard quality and quantity, both are good in this train. Even you can ask for standard veg meal instead of veg Al-carte meal. Standard meal will contain everything except the Paneer dish (which has no taste;only ruins the good taste of other item provided).
Standard Meal cost Rs 50. (Consisting of Rice, Dal tadka, 1 Sabji, curd, pickle)
Also if your coach is very near to PC, and if you are hungry , then the good smell of cooking food makes the day. Don't wait for catering boys to come to

you, instead just go to PC, and buy whatever you wish on actual price as the big food menu with price is placed at entry.
Only problem is they don't prepare Roti/Chappati for 2nd Night. Instead they make Poori. I found it out when i saw only rice (very huge quantity;more than 200 gm) was given and when i told about this to PC people, they happily without any extra charges gave me hot pooris in addition.
Still if some catering boy does any "Her-pher" in price , then complain with pantry manager. If he doesn't agrees to do anything, then call at 1800-111-321.

This train hardly gets late to reach BBS. It always arrives before 5 a.m at BBS. It has good slack time between:
1. GR-WADI
2. BGM-SC
3. AKP-VSKP.
So it cover up its late running.

Although its a express,but you'll be surprised by its high speed action during night time.

If in doubt regarding the pantry charges, go to pantry car and their is a huge menu list on the front. Check it out. And if catering boy charges more than the prescribed rate, then first ask the manager to prepare a bill and then ask him why you have been overcharged.
If manager dont agrees to prepare bill, then call 1800-111-321.

If you want to save time for SC to Mumbai journey, take Shatabdi from SC to PUNE and then take this train from PUNE to MUMBAI. Confirmed seats/berths will also be available in this combo.

What if the Shatabdi gets delayed & Konark reaches Pune before the Shatabdi?
There are other options too from Pune to CSTM but IMO Hussain Sagar is the best option.
Konark has too much of unnecessary slack.
