I think its should be between HWH-Chennai main line which is saturated like any thing. Already BZA-KZJ 3rd sanctioned same time they should start the 3rd in east coast route also.

Right Venkat. I think Godavari has become a victim of the stoppages. Other trains have been luckier. Take the case of 3UP/4DN HWH-Chennai Mail.
1986 timings are HWH dep: 2000 MAS arr:445 / MAS dep: 2200 HWH arr:635.
Present timings HWH dep: 2345 MAS arr:350/MAS dep: 2340 HWH arr:410. The curtailment in running time is more nearly 4/5 hours despite the same number of 33 stoppages. Runwise I rate it higher than the present-day Coromandel although Coromandel when introduced did the run in flat 25 hrs with only 3 halts at BBS, VSKP and BZA.
