Hello!

I have two options from Secunderabad to Pune

1. Secunderabad Pune Shatabdi (1A)
2. Mumbai express departing from Hyderabad (2A)

I am at splits on which train to choose. While I would have chosen Shatabdi hands down but heard it uses those old ICF rakes (that was huge dampner to my excitement! ) So, if anyone has traveled by the above two trains, please advise!

i hope you realise that 1A in shatabdi would be executive chair car, not the 1A cabin/coupe that is available in usual trains.
in any case, unless it is important to spend the night in the train, i can't see how 2nd option is a better choice wrt time...

The Pune Shatabdi is certainy better , and faster too . As said by paramiyer , The 1A is Executive Chair Car . If you're short of time , then the Shatabdi is THE option for you . However you also have the choice of the Hussainsagar express which comes at Pune at 3 or 4 in the morning and reaches by 12 .
