Earlier we have written an article with list of Trains from Secunderabad to Shirdi. At that time, there was no Railway Station in Shirdi and hence the nearest railway station, Nagarsol was mentioned. But now, there is a brand new station developed in Shirdi, called Sainagar Shirdi (code: SNSI), and here are the two exclusive trains from Secunderabad/ Hyderabad that will take you directly to the land of Sai Baba.
