Grand Trunk Express with 32 halts takes 28h 35 min to cover NDLS-BZA
This train takes with 12 halts takes 29h 30 min to cover the same stretch...
Although 32 hrs ante chaala kastam....so better decrease TT by 2 hrs i.e close to 34hrs and maybe add some more halts between balharshah and delhi...Focusing on connecting More places from the north to Coastal Andhra and Parts of Telangana

This train needs a serious speed up....return 17229 has two crossings with janmabhoomi and sc-gnt ICE and from 26th march,it will take 4hrs 55 min to cover SC-GNT...whereas this train is given a 5h 10 min slot for SC-GNT which can easily be covered in 4h 45 min.......48 min between gnt-tel which can be easily covered in less than 30 min.on a whole between SC-NDO about 1 HOUR can be reduced...
The new schedule can be like this
GNT-17:25 17:45
TEL-18:18 18:20
NDO-18:37 18:39

Presenting a daily train proposed for connecting the state of Jharkhand to two major IT hubs in India,Bengaluru and Hyderabad.Also serves as a night train between Bengaluru and Hyderabad.Stops provided at major stations.Don't demand for removing halts,but you can suggest additional halts and other TT changes.So,go all green for this train!!!

Try to avoid overtakes as much as possible as that will make your train more unrealistic.....adjust the train's schedule such that it does not overtake or get overtaken by any Mail/express train....

The faster and better version of the 17230 HYB TVC Sabari Express....
Corrected some faults with the present running train
1)there are many trains from hyb to tpty but not many from hyb to kpd,sa,ed,cbe,srr,ern,ktym,tvc
So...these places deserve a more convinient timing and hence KPD arrival is after 4AM and the journey from KPD to TVC is Daytime...
up in AP....Usually runs before time in AP but Late in TN and Kerala so levelled the whole slack to the TN and Kerala Side.
So any suggestions are welcome and FYI-Totally feasible TT(You can check)...

Re# 2075015-1            Tags   Past Edits
Dan, good.
We seriously need to think about TT inside Kerala. It is really sad to see 4 halts between Kottayam & Kayankulam which is just 55 kms away.
- Changanassery to Tiruvalla is just 8 kms and both get a stop
- Tiruvalla to Chengannur is 9 kms and get stop
Again Chengannur to Mavelikara is 12 kms and a stop
- Mavelikara to Kayankulam is 8 kms!!
I know locals will have 100s of reason justifying a halt. After having all these stops how can we really speed up trains.
Moreover Guntur to Chirala also has many stops.
If we consider all this Sabari can really be speeded up.

do U remember the schedule before when sabari used to start from hyb at 12:00 and reach Cbe at 08:30,now there is one hour increase and in between the mentioned stations and a decrease in tt of kerala....the train used to run perfectly fine back then also...I don't know why all this new tt had to be proposEd...all I did is combine both of them and give good runs in where it can run like a superfast ie gnt-ru and kpd-cbe

But on another thought the 17229 takes 40 min less time of travel instead of all the same halts and wef 26-03-2017...17229 will be speeded up...inspite of such a free slot 17230 has 40 min more travel time increased andand should atleast have same time of travel as 17229...

Presenting a faster version of the Sabari Express from Kochuveli to Hyderabad....It will start from KCVL as soon as pit line work is done.
This speed up is very much possible and the train can conviniently run with this schedule...
This is the only train to Kerala and Coimbatore,Erode,Katpadi from Hyderabad so it deserves a speed up...
Please note:The train does not Overtake/Get overtaken
by VSKP-LTT express...you can check the schedule for 18519 if u want..
Please green flag the train if u like and any suggestions are welcome.......
