Quick update on this train. I travelled with my family last Wednesday. the train started on time from Vizag & reached Rajamundhry on time. From there it was delayed by 40 minutes when it reached BZA & 1.5 hrs delay on arrival at SC. Departure at SC was almost 2 hrs delay. Reached Pune 1 hr late.
You need to make arrangements for food if you travel by this train. There are vendors, but they come only once. Nothing was available at SC, as it was 11 pm. At BZA, I had ordered via comesum. It was good. The guy was on time & food was hot & tasty. You need to call 011-41100100 to order your food, irrespective of the

station & train you are at.
Apart from the delay of 2 hrs, the train, in general is good & confortable. The bogies are brand new and cleanly maintained. I enjoyed the 25 hrs ride :)

Ya surprisingly sometimes it's on time. It's being more punctual nowdays. Hope it becomes regular punctual train. When i traveled last time 2 months before PUNE-VSKP it was surprisingly punctual that day. Enjoyed the whole journey with great speed.Though BZA-VSKP section it was cruising in thundering speed.

Ya its having thundering speed, recently our surya travelled...he is worried that this train may jump after WL as its running like crazy. From BZA-SC its still holds fastest train crown.

Instead of increasing its frequency its better to introduce a train Via EE with little late start at VSKP. From BZA it should run on same slot with this train.

Ya Venkat SC-VSKP section was covered with great speed also. That day our train was late at BZA and after leaving BZA also it crawled for some time. Then it cruised with thundering speed till RJY-SLO. Reached 20 mins before @VSKP that day.

Speaking of departures CSTM from 9am to 1.30pm only one daily train departs 7031. With some other weekly trains.Dadar is always crowded . Dadar western is getting another 2 new PF's.Hope one new PF is built for Dadar CR also.

My view on why no stops on or after WADI.. there are a lot of trains to Mumbai from Wadi, GR, Solapur etc.. hence, no specific requirement for this train to stop at these places. Vice-versa -- not too many people from BZA, VSKP etc in these areas also. Hyd connectivity is also very good from these places.
When it comes to Pune -- it is required for people to travel to those parts of Andhra where there is limited train/bus/air connectivity.
Also, if they stop this train at every other station, then

Wrong Information. The 2nd AC coach is very old. Not maintained properly. The seat numbers 25,26,27,28 are worst. The seat holders for the backrest are broken. The coach is clean otherwise. The side berth does not join properly.
3rd ac and 1st ac coaches along with Sleeper are very good.
I have travelled by this train on 12th Nov.

Quick update on the train:
I travelled by this train on 10-Sep from LTT to SC. The train was placed on PF#4 in LTT station around 10 pm. The doors were opened and the coach was already running AC which is good. As soon as we boarded, the attendent gave us all 1 water bottle each.
It started on time, exactly at
...
more...
1115 pm. Passed by Thane around 12 mid-night. I dozzed off by then.
Next morning, as and how you wake up, the attendent checks for tea or coffee & serves it. The stopped at Wadi around 8 am. Breakfast was loaded into the train here. It was Idly & Wada with Bread, Butter & Jam. The quality of the food was good. Food was warm & not hot. Taste was very good. A news paper (Deccan Hearld, Gulbarga Edition) was given.
The train reached lingampally around 10 am & I was happy that will reach SC before time. However, from then on, it was worst than a passenger train & I wish I should have taken the MMTS in Lingampally :( It crawled to SC around 1130 am.. which is the boring part of the journey.
All, in all, a neat train, conformtable seating/sleeping facility. teh laundry was clean & fresh unlike many other trains. Attendants were courteous and they aslo provided fresh warm milk for my son. It was a nice experience.

Very ture. Even I have travelled by this much-awaited Duronto and have been terribly disappointed with the stupid time it takes to reach Secunderabad from Lingampalli. If they can't manage the signals properly and ensure that this train reaches on time, they should have a halt at either Lingampalli or Begumpet. What's the point in spending an hour-and-half in the train to reach Secunderabad. I am travelling again in another two weeks time, and wonder what will happen then. I wish it should be a little different...

Hi Pradyu, yes the train was filled completely. It was to the fullest i belive. Also, expecting it to be superfast - i had asked my cousin to reach SC station to pick me up. They were waiting there & I had to stay in the train to reach SC :(.
