Travelled on May 2017 from Udupi to Panvel station and here are my observations
-Dont opt for sleeper,pathetic as hell.Daily commuters will try to take your seat.
-Charger points dont work,Rats and rodents can be found toilets always stink.
-Dinner avaible just before Madgaon,I suggest pack the food from Madgaon station.
passenger train between Udupi and Madgaon.Post Madgaon-Panvel superb run.
-General coaches are a hell type especially during peak seasons
Overall A train having good priority in KR but mantainence is worst

TT usually won't allow any passengers with general ticket to enter into reserved coach. He usually charges some amount for a seat (if empty). Might be one off case in my coach.

Is ten minutes enough to get packed food at Madgaon? Maybe mine was a different experience as it was a couple of years back. The Chappati and Chicken served before Madgaon was quite good

Dinner service is now handled by Ahuja Caterers! Yes, the same Ahuja renowned for their catering services onboard the Mandovi/Konkan Kanya Express!

So far it was by Benjo and there was no pantry car. Now with Ahuja, is there a pantry car?

No pantry. It was loaded from Khed. On offer was Chicken Biriyani, Lollipop, Veg Biriyani, Veg Thali, Egg Biriyani. For 12620, I think it is still Benjoe.

Trian is in worst condition cleanliness is not maintained at all S3 coach is very worst some fans are not working some were working but air was not coming they were full of dust some of lights are also in same condition even seats were not cleaned very dusty seats Even toilets of S3 coach were not having water on the next day dirty smell comes try to get S4 S5 S6 S11 they are one of brand new coaches fitted with bio toilets & charging outlets ignore S3 S2 S8 they are worst... Rats, cockroach & mice are common in this trian they are found in all coaches... Due to RSA & maintainance of rake at TVC cleanliness is ignored... Catering is good & punctuality is okk....

If you are from western suburbs ...and u need to save time and reach ur home as early as possible... then get down at panvel itself and catch a local to kurla nd then to dadar..... matsyagandha would be just arrived at thane and by that time u would be already in dadar :D Reason is it wastes a lot of time waiting at Diva outer and entering the mainline ... and moves slowly further till thane most of the time

Alternately, take a local Panvel to Wadala, there you take the Andheri local. There is a Panvel to Andheri local at about 6am.
Kurla/Dadar are to crowded if you have bulky luggage & families. Now you can book Ola Cabs online via their app & you will be picked within 10minutes, Far more cheaper & Comfortable Ac than prepaid taxi, not advisable for people with bulky luggage
