    To reach Shirdi from Mumbai by train, follow these steps:

    1. Start in Mumbai:
      • You can board a train to Shirdi from either Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSTM) or Lokmanya Tilak Terminus (LTT), both major railway stations in Mumbai.
    2. Choose the Train Route:
      • There are multiple trains that run between Mumbai and Shirdi, offering different routes and travel times.
      • One of the popular train routes is from Mumbai to Manmad Junction. From Manmad, you can take a connecting train to Sainagar Shirdi Railway Station, the closest railway station to Shirdi.
    3. Train Options:
      • Some of the trains that run on this route include the Devagiri Express, Panchavati Express, and LTT Shirdi Express. You can check the schedule and availability of these trains based on your departure point (CSTM or LTT).
    4. Travel Duration:
      • The travel time from Mumbai to Manmad varies depending on the train and route, but it typically takes around 4-5 hours.
      • The journey from Manmad to Sainagar Shirdi Railway Station is relatively short, with a travel time of about 2 hours or less.
    5. Reaching Shirdi:
      • Once you arrive at Sainagar Shirdi Railway Station, you can hire an auto-rickshaw or taxi to reach the main town of Shirdi, which is approximately 3 kilometers away. Alternatively, you can walk to Shirdi if you prefer.
    6. Ticket Booking:
      • To book train tickets, you can visit the official website of Indian Railways or use third-party train ticket booking platforms. Make your reservations well in advance, especially during peak travel seasons and festivals.
    Please note that train schedules and routes may change, so it's essential to check the latest information and confirm the train options and availability closer to your travel date. Shirdi is a significant pilgrimage destination, and the railway station is well-connected to provide convenient access to the town.
