I just dont understand Railways silly logic behind timings of such long distance trains! Already it is running slow, and via longer route, it regularly reaches Secunderabad 1 hour before! Why dont they speed it up? Same case with 15015, GTL to DMM is 7 hours just for 100 kms. And then IR cries about the losses!
IR is trying its best to create negative impression for me (and a few regular Railfans also).

Did you raise a grievance in the portal or else tweet?
YPR tata express is an exception, that takes a totally different route right?

But still, look at YPR-SVDK Suvidha Express, same route but takes 2 hours less.
And regarding grievance, I know their reply that slack is given keeping in mind the change of zones, blah blah, and if I raise a point for comparing it with suvidha, then they will say, that is suvidha, and this is normal express train, speed of both cant be compared!

Oh I am Sorry. Changed the blog catagory now.
Yes Its Puttaparthi. There is no city called Sri Satya Sai Prashanti Nilayam. Its just the name IR gave to the City of Puttaparthi. Even the announcments here come up in station as "Puttaparthi - Howrah Superfast express" Will post the audio file of the recording soon.
