History[edit]

The 17.5 km (11 mi) long Puntamba-Shirdi link, connecting the holy city of Shirdi to the Manmad-Daund branch line was completed in 2009. Work had started in 2003. The new railway station, Sainagar Shirdi is well connected with many direct trains to different places.[1] The Manmad-Puntamba-Sainagar Shirdi is a broad gauge line which was electrified in 2011-12.[2] Before this rail link pilgrims used to reach the town by road after alighting at Kopargaon, Nagarsol, Manmad and Nashik Road railway stations.

Passenger Facilities[edit]

The station has two waiting halls one for Upper Class and one for General Class ticket holders. The waiting halls are very small and difficult to handle large number of passengers.

Station doesn't have cloak rooms and any kind of book stalls. Passengers should also note that the railway track ends at Shirdi Railway Station and no train leaves further which makes difficult to catch other trains if one misses the train.
