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.

    A new feature has been rolled out - "Blog-based ChatRooms". . Previously, we had one-on-one private Chat feature, which was not very successful. The reason was that Chat Invitations are sometimes intrusive. The recipient may not be free to undertake the Chat, even if they are Online, and also the other person ends...

    It has come to our attention that several IRI members have been causing mischief on other social media sites, distressing our regular loyal members. . They have been seen to post confidential and sensitive Govt. information on IRI, and thereafter themselves have been complaining to the Ministry that, "Such RailFan sites are openly running...
