Recently I travelled by 11074 from HX to Pune. At HX it came 10 mins before time. It is good to see that this train has 13 SL coaches, which I do think any other train has running between Chennai and Mumbai.
My coach was S3, and it was very old coach, most of the seats were in very bad state. The upper sky blue cover of the seats were all removed, and the inner cloth was visible.
The running of the train was very good.
noise level also was high during the running.
It reached Pune 20 mins before time.
It will be really good if the frequency can be increased as other trains in this section are mostly full at all times irrespective of what time of the year and difficult to get the reservation.

Another point I want to mention is that the charging points were not working. Only one charging point was working and that was near my seat. All of them were requesting me to use the charging point.

A lot of slack time is given between Nalgonda and Secunderabad. Recently I traveled from BZA to Pune. It took 8.5 hrs to travel from BZA to SC and mostly between Nalgonda and Moula Ali, the train is stopped for almost 1 and 1.5 hrs. I saw some couple of express trains overtaking this train at some unknown station after Nalgonda. If this train gets precedence then the time can be reduced by 2 hrs I believe. And to my surprise the train reached Pune ontime at 8:00 AM.
So after Secunderabad, the train moves really well towards LTT.

Is this train OT by other train before Bibinagar or this train sopped for crossings in oposite direction.
Slack is more agree,but just before your train JB exp will be running which will regularly arrive SC after 7.30 due to some reasons and controlling.
From SC it has preferrence and shares slot similar to LTT Drnt for some time towards Pune
I hope
it must start late from CCT and should reach same time to SC.

This train was the fastest train between SC and BZA section. It used to cover within 5 and half hrs. There were many commuters for the same reason. We will be losing a very good train now. Its really very disappointing.

Never ever expected such humiliating degradation of a super fast express into an ordinary of most the successful train.
Big joke and experimentation of halt at Moulali to make it a super crawler..
Demand for stoppage of converting unofficial halts to official halts at Moulali will grow very soon.

I used to take this train from Pune to BZA and also in return. I was happy with the daily announcement, but I am very disappointed with the timings. I think the train will go mostly empty from Pune now.

If pantry is made available and if this train is made daily then it will be a very good train for people going to Kazipet/Vijayawada and further till Vishakapatnam.
Also I have observed problem of water not being filled.
