Narsaraopet MP Rayapati Sambasiva Rao said the proposed railway zone should be in the capital city like elsewhere in the country.
“It

should be either at Vijayawada or at Guntur. There is a strong demand for it from Visakhapatnam. But, it is not a correct choice as it is prone to natural calamities,” he told media persons after the customary pre-railway budget meeting with South Central Railway General Manager Ravindra Gupta here on Thursday.
Rail connectivity
Guntur MP Jayadev Galla said he raised the issue of railway connectivity from the capital city (Amaravati) to metropolitan and other big cities in the country.
Things would hopefully move in the right direction, he asserted, adding that he did not walk out of the meeting to ensure that the all-important railway projects in capital region were not relegated to the background.
YSR Congress MPs Y.V. Subba Reddy (Ongole) and Mekapati Rajamohan Reddy (Nellore) said they had thanked the Ministry of Railways for giving a tangible shape to the Nadikudi-Srikalahasti line. They wanted it to be expedited to help speed up the development of Rayalaseema region.
Rajahmundry MP M. Murali Mohan said he requested the General Manager to make the second line on the arch (bowstring) bridge on the River Godavari at Rajahmundry operational to facilitate the stoppage of traffic on the rail-cum-road bridge for taking maintenance works. The issue was promised to be looked into.
Extension of Machilipatnam-Tirupati Express to Kadapa, speedy execution of Kadapa and Bangalore and Yerraguntla – Nandyal lines, provision of halt of at least one express train at Anaparthi in East Godavari district were among various issues raised by the MPs.
Vizag is not the right place for the zone as it is prone to natural calamities

Friends I tried changing gender in ticket. I went to DRM office to get permission from assistant commercial manager as directed by chief reservation officer. He denied as irctc tickets are not in their control. Somehow luckily I know one TTE he explained to concerned Godavari exp TTE and he allowed me to travel. There shoulld be some provision in IRCTC itself to change such things.

On one side Air asia and Indigo are selling flight tickets starting at 2800/- who will purchase 2AC with 3000 and travel for 36 hrs. This should be converted as rajdhani/duronto with stops where in premium train services like food and cleanliness and speed should be provided. Moreover very less people will prefer 2 days journey.

What's the point of excessive stoppages in other states for AP AC Express? After Vijayawada, the train can have a Technical halt at WL and can run with the slots of Chennai Garibrath Exp. Why an AC LHB cant haul at ICF GR speeds. They can comfortably minimize travel time to 6 hours to unleash the monster. 12803 VSKP_HNZ swarna jayanthi is far better than this train.
Shame on the IR for wasting the AC SF trains like this.

I feel it should be converted to AP rajdhani with reduced timing and stops be remained same. A new AP express with sleeper also may be introduced in the route.

It's just a matter of the name. The name Rajdhani is used for the train connecting the State capital and New Delhi. AP AC SF should be enough for you. Also, as of now, there won't be much patronage for a fully A/C express running with few stops. Better to have the AP AC SF with good number of halts in the state and limited halts outside the state. Besides, more important thing for the state now, is good intra-state connectivity. As of now SJ, link and this AC SF ( after schedule is speeded-up) should be able to satisfy the demands to Delhi, One train to Delhi from TPTY ia NLR-OGL can be considered to round it off.

I understand, what I mean is a pure new LHB coaches with poor TT is of no use. Presently there is shortage of rakes and if IR uses them for such slow trains what is the use. Instead what I mean s a Rajdhani starting from BZA passing VSKP or starting from VSKP passing BZA (like Dibrugarh Rajdhani) may be converted with better TT and halts remaining the same within the Andhra Telangana region and other important stops Nagpur Bhopal Jhansi Agra Delhi. Obviously a rajdhani class train will have better occupancy for fully AC train. A new AP express with sleeper may be introduced from TPTY or Gudur covering other sector of the state. (note sleeper train Swarnajayanthi already exists in VSKP BZA line).

Poor TT means what exactly??
As per me, it implicates poor DEP @ start & same-way poor ARR @ destination!!
/search/401/0/664
This reveals, only Hirakud to some extent do have superb TT, as apart from it, all full fledge VSKP-NZM/NDLS bound train do have AVL in all class, even for tomorrow!!
If
...
more...
u make train start @ 20/22 PM & make its run @ 30 hrs, then too it gonna ARR @ 2/4 AM...then will say: ARR @ NZM is awkward for its success!!

Already two trains of two day journey and one night journey consuming trains are there swarna jayanthi and samata. Whats the use of a third one like a succesor. Moreover being LHB coaches and AP class(I mean state bound super fast) one expect travel time to be less. It can be introduced in the lines of GT or Tamil nadu where in 2 ights and 1 day is consumed which is far better

One correction: For complete week run, its only 1 Train: Samata/SJ nt 2!!
However the OT are pathetic & unavoidable...but still, the fast run-time (2 hrs), could nt impact demand scenario much!!

Good move. Like SBC MAS Daily mail one overnight train starting 11PM from both sides and reaching destination by 5:30 or 6 is required between VSKP and BZA as both are important cities in residual AP now. May be with less occupancy but will defenitely improve in future.
