I have travelled to & fro in this train few days back in Third AC and got Upper and Side Upper berth in my journey.
1) Maintaining good timelines.(Onwards journey arrived vskp at 06:25 and in Return journey arrived SC JN at 08:30 by overtaking GR at outskirts).
2) Few coaches are very old and rest are good.
3) Private vendors are selling Biryani’s and Water Bottles in the train(So don't worry if you had boarded this with empty stomach.
4) Both the directions WAP 4 in my journey
5) Thanks to SCR as they running this train with highest priority. Prestigious trains like TN,GR,Charimnar are stopped aside given a way to this train. As per knowledge One day it will also over Godavari express for sure, by any chance if godavari express runs 20-30 mins late (Waiting for that D day)
5) Majority people travelling in my coach are Software employees
6)As per my knowledge this train should with constant speed through the journey may be at 75-85 KM/HR... but this train suddenly picks up to max speed 110-120 KM/HR and again after some time the speed gets dropped to min speed 10-20 KM/HR(This happened many times may be 20-30 times).
7)Also I felt like my coach getting Tilted by around 20 to 30 degrees when travelling at max speed and I got little scared... Is this as expected in High Speed train?

Today Duronto overtook Godavari. Duronto came to VSKP at 6.35 and Godavari at 7. The day has come. Last week, I got down from Godavari at 6.15 in P1 abd by the time i reached P8, Duronto was on the platform, its around 6.30. i think the day has come.
