Here is a Junction Occupation chart of Pune Jn. It indicates the movements on the platforms and the maintenance lines and washing sidings over a 24 hour period.
It is quite clear from this chart that there is no obvious place or slot for new trains like the PA - ERS express.
This paper was circulated in a meeting between the DRM and the local Pravasi Sanghatana. The purpose of this paper was to explain why more EMUs could not be started towards Lonavala.
This is a large file (390 KB) but worth having a look.
