The train was first introduced between Howrah and Vijayawada after cancellation of the service of the twin Hyderabad-Puri Express and passenger trains. It was then extended to Guntur. After the delinking of the through coaches from Krishna Express (slip coaches as they are now called in IR terminology), this train was extended to Hyderabad.But I am unable to recall the years when these changes took place.

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.
