I don't know why. I just clicked it and it went straight to the search. Try searching for 90di on Google and then following the instructions on the home page.

At one time the rail-car waited at Barog while the passengers got off and had breakfast at the station.

http://erail.in/ Would indeed suggest going over Bhusaval (Bhusawal). (So now check http://erail.in?T=PUNE::BSL: and http://erail.in?T=BSL::CD:. The site as always takes some studying to get to grips with; take note of running days, any special notes, departure and arrival stations, etc.)

That 90Di site doesn't work for me, either; I assume I'm blocking one of their applets.

I'm impressed. Is there a competition for the highest number of posts quoted in one reply? You must have won it hands down?

I wondered why 90di seems to get relatively little mention. It was recommended to me by Vonkla and I've never had any difficulty firing it up.

Heheh

Yes, I think we were on the same thread when you picked it up from (the always-very knowledgeable) Vonkla. I had just been about to be happy with the link; until then I found out it won't work at my end. Little jealous, really. But oh well. I can't figure out what I may be blocking, nor am about to unblock something just for them. (So you never know and they might come across this by way of a web search for their own site, and try and improve it )

I think I'd seen the site name pass by before (but it may be relatively new; though I do think I'd known of it for longer), and I'm sure it could be very handy for those for whom it does work. So again folks: http://www.90di.com/.

Thanks machadinha, Dave W, Prakaant for the help.

I have now decided to go via Nagpur which is an easier option and direct trains are available.

But, I really appreciate you taking your time and resolving my query.

Hi Steven,

Almost ready to book train from Mumbai-Goa. One quick question: why would a train with fewer stops (chair car) be less expensive than one with many stops? (AC2Tier). I am ready to book the #2 below for comfort as it is a long journey - husband wants to know rationale for pricing

#1 Jan Shatabdi Ex (12051)Mumbai Cst - Madgaon 05:10 14:10 9h 0m 8 stops Rs. 1,792 AC Char Car

VS

#2 Mandovi Express (10103)Mumbai Cst - Madgaon 06:55 18:45 11h 50m 19 stops
Rs. 2,825 AC2Tier

Thanks you for helping! :-)

It's the number of tickets per carriage, in 2A there are 46 berths, in CC there are 73 seats, CC should really be compared with 3A (64 berths per carriage).

I'm not sure where you get your prices.

2A should be Rs 1133
3A will be Rs 837
CC should be 733

Search for trains using www.erail.in then book trains using www.cleartrip.com

AC Chair Car (CC) is a great way to travel, the seats are big and comfortable, but I'm not sure if I'd want to travel 9 hours in a seat.

3A is also very comfortable, if you choose side berths (both window seats), there's no noticeable difference between 2A and 3A, only the price.

2A is all the space and comfort you could want, choose 1 upper berth and one lower berth when booking.

The advantage of 2A is, you can book 1 upper berth and 1 lower berth, and you'll have the whole lower berth to sit on (about 6 feet long), but if you want to lay down or sleep, one person goes up to the upper berth, and the other person can sleep on the lower berth, this is really useful on long journeys, and not just for sleeping, you may want to just escape for a little while, so climb up, lay down, iPod on, eyes closed, and you're in another world for a while. (this works exactly the same if you get a side upper and side lower berth in 3A, though some argue that you're too close to the aisle and feel everyone passing, also the side lower berth has a very hard joining right in the middle of the berth)

The problem with the Mandovi Express is the travel time, almost 12 hours, but I would argue that 9 hours in a chair will feel like longer, The Konkan Kanya Express uses the same carriages as the Mandovi Express, but does the journey overnight, but it's a popular train, so early booking is advised, especially if departing fri/sat/sun.

In 2A, the best berths are HA19 & HA20, but you need to book early to get these, and there is no way for you to select these berths, it's just luck, just remember 2 things, select 1 upper berth and 1 lower berth (not side berths), and book early, Indian Railways books from the middle of the carriage first (furthest away from doors), and HA19 & 20 are in the centre of the carriage.

Good luck, let us know what berths or seats you get.

Hi Steven,

Thank you for your speedy reply! I went straight to Clear trip to look at trains - that is where the prices were. I will go to the other link first that you posted to book it.

You additional comments reinforced my decision to go with 2A. I probably will be booking a day trip but will be leaving on a Friday - so I know I need to book it soon. I will probably book tomorrow evening as I am too sleepy to attempt the process right now.

I will definitely let you know what I get and I wouldn't doubt if I have a question about it!

Many thanks! Rachelle

Rachelle, you can not book tickets using www.erail.in. Using that link you can see trains between 2 stations and availability.

For booking tickets you need to use www.cleartrip.com

Hi dipyamanbasu

I will not go to Chandrapur via Nagpur, rather I will take a bus/cab once I reach Nagpur if that clarifies my earlier statement!

Thank you, Aarosh! Trying to book it during Indian Business Hours is tough!
