Nov 17 2014 (06:59)   Rename AP Express: Vinod Kumar

Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) MP from Karimnagar B. Vinod Kumar has requested Union Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu to rename the AP Express train running between Secunderabad and New Delhi as Telangana Express.
In a letter addressed to the Union Minister on Sunday, Mr. Vinod Kumar said it was unfortunate that the Railway Ministry had not changed the AP Express (No. 12723/12724) even six months after the formation of Telangana State.
He noted that the train would travel entirely in Telangana before entering Maharashtra on the way to Delhi.

If a passenger desires to occupy reserved accommodation from any station enroute, he would be permitted to entrain at any intermediate station he chooses irrespective of the distance from the starting station subject to the following conditions :
A specific request must be made in writing at the station from where the ticket is purchased and reservation made atleast 24 hours before the scheduled departure of the train from the starting station.
Railway Administration reserves the right to use such accommodation from the originating station up to the station at which the passenger is due to entrain.
No refund will be permissible for the portion of journey not performed by the passenger.

You should have changed the boarding point at the time of booking your ticket itself. Manually you have to take the print out of your ticket along with your id proof, and change the boarding station as desired. Pl note that any modifications on tickets are allowed only before 48 hrs of schedule departure of the train

Ypr katra premium takes 16 hrs to reach secunderabad from ypr, but rajdhani covers in less than 12 hrs. Also takes 28 hrs from hyb to delhi, where AP express covers in 26 hrs & Rajdhani in 22 hrs. What is the use of premium? Why is it such a slow train?? The train with worst timings. Such trains should not be encouraged.

Why such a good train with fine timings been slowed down by 4 hrs. The name of this train can be changed to Garib rath Passenger. Japan is increasing the speed of trains while India is converting superfast trains into passenger trains.

Re# 1018131-2            Tags   Past Edits
The timings should be changed. When an ICF duronto between sc & vskp covers the distance in 9 hrs 30 min with a tech stop at bza for 10 min, an LHB rake should cover this distance in atleast 10 hrs with considerable stoppages,but takes 12-13 hrs. Falaknuma exp covers in 11hr30min. The speed for this train should be increased.
Still better this rake should be given to sc vskp duronto and the icf rake of duronto should be alloted to shm ac exp

The destination boards displayed on some of the passenger trains in Kerala confuse passengers. It is a common scene in some of the major railway stations where passengers board the wrong train and dangerously jump out when the train starts moving because of the highly confusing destination boards. The railways may be saving money by cutting down on the job of changing boards with this ‘innovative concept’. But please think of the people who are not very familiar with routes. We hope the railway authorities will come up with people-friendly display boards.

Its really very good suggestion. Even superfast express trains with rake sharing have such kind of boards. Some trains are even more confused where the reservation coaches have two numbers one for up & one for down direction. This is also confusing making the passengers tensed after the train arrival.
ex- 12861 Dakshin link exp has coach board S6/S11 one for up & one for return direction. This matter has to be looked into and avoid confusion
