These trains are Ahmedabad-Chennai Express (19419-19420), Ahmedabad-Chennai Humsafar (22919-22920), Pune-Bhusaval Express (11025-11026), LTT-Hubli Express (via- Panvel-Solapur) (17321-17322), Pune-Indore Express (19311-19112), Pune-Mumbai Pragati Express (12125-12126) and Panvel-Pune Passenger (51317-18).
