PR No. 474 Date: 7th Nov, 2016
Kacheguda-Guntur AC Double Decker Express & Kacheguda-Tirupati AC Double Decker Express Permanently Cancelled from 14th Nov, 2016
Train No. 22118/22117 Kacheguda-Guntur-Kacheguda AC Double Decker Express and Train No. 22120/22119 Kacheguda-Tirupati-Kacheguda AC Double Decker Express were announced for introduction in the Railway Budget 2014-15, basing on which the two trains were introduced with effect from 13th and 14th May, 2014 respectively.
the day of the introduction of these two trains, the occupancy remained very poor and gradually decreased to single digit. Considering the occupancy average and lack of demand from the rail using public for the two trains, a proposal was sent to Railway Board for cancelling the services which became un-economical, after eliciting the views of various stake holders including Public Representatives, members of the Divisional Rail Users Consultative Committee (DRUCC). Accordingly, the Railway Board granted approval for cancellation of these two trains.
Therefore, the following two Air Conditioned Double Decker Express trains, are being permanently cancelled with effect from 14th November, 2016.
1. Train No. 22118/22117 Kacheguda-Guntur-Kacheguda AC Double Decker Express.
2. Train No. 22120/22119 Kacheguda-Tirupati-Kacheguda AC Double Decker Express.
The released Double Decker rake (Train) will be utilized to run as a Tri-Weekly Express between Visakhapatnam-Tirupati via New Guntur from a date to be notified later.

Normal ICE is surly helps. But what they do with this rake is question. Railways should come with Garibrath faring for DDs but now a days railway more interested income than serving people. So fare decrease or present fare will give them same amount.
Reagarding this route, running via ngnt is a big bottleneck. People in all AC are people who wants to travel in fast. Even Amaravathi is still most of the offices in Vijayawada only. So TPTY-BZA stretch people find other trains which are faster than this is bottle neck.
clear SCR starting VSKP-TPTY via NGNT due to lobby than commercial viability. Tirupati to Vizag via Tenali can be covered in 12 hrs but via NGNT it may 13 or 14 hrs and also late running issues.
Nellore to vizag , Titupati - RJY/kakinada can be done via Tenali in 8-9 hrs but via NGNT takes more time with extra slack. So end to end travellers wont find to useful.
It will be used as Tpty/nlr to guntur and Guntur/BZA to RJY/SLO/Vskp. Lets see how they will allocate the QUOTA.

Dont mix two topics here.....
This train is coming bcz SCR has DD rake.....
Rake vundi kabati....VSKP ki DD ivali ani fix ayaru kabati VSKP Tpty DD.
VSKP Tpty munde plan chsi vundochu......than Vskp BZA DD(Uday) but at that time it was objected by GTL div saying maintenance the issue s resolved so they tought to rull till Tpty.
nunchi possiblity for DD is to 4 places
VSKP KCG DD - As SC div not willing to take rake and KCG cant get crowd
VSKP MAS DD - Rake is SCR so its not possible to run from MAS/VSKP
VSKP BZA DD - than this DD VSKP Tpty will have better occupancy
even same with case of Humsafar..... as SCR has 1 LHB rake so they gave Tpty JAT Humsafar

Even I said the same thing in 3rd line right, that SCR has the rake, hence it is running DD.

Anyway it I'll be only sectional carriage no long distance travellers. Why they I'll waste full day travelling from vskp SLo RJY to tirupati paying AC fares. Last month I was travelling in janmabhoomi the ac chair c3 is half empty when I saw in Rajahmundry to check occupancy.

vskp-ogl/nlr people may prefer if its via Tenali as it can be done by 8 hrs.
Many ogl, nellore people settled in VSKP. Our MLA and minister Ganta srinivas is from Ongole and our Vizag MP Haribabu is from nellore, Rajyasabha MP Subbiramreddy from nellore. But now people max use it to GNT.
Any ways lets wait for TT
