See there is one rake and it is having schedule for 6 days and monday is reserved for maintaiance . Before this they cant run double dekkers at the decisions of drm first they need to test the train in that route to check eheyher the rake is encountering any problems with pf height of bridges in that route along witjh commissioner of safety get a safety ceryificate approval from both the zones then only they can run for your information dd is tested in sc wl bza route and the same has been sent to railway board througb safety commissioner for review and there is no concrete informatipn about approval of the same. In ltt route uoto madgoan it is tested anx cleared so they are running as special. Moreover sc to vizag requires two full days which is nit possible as of now

I think the new AP state needs fast train connection between its major cities. As of now fast trains possible in coastal route. So speed train needed to connect Port cities like Visakahapatnam, Kakinada( Samrlakota), then small cities like Rajhamundry, Tadepalligudem, Eeluru, main junction Vijayawada, Ongole, nellore.
I feel a Shatabdi express which is due for years in coastal AP need of a hour to support the new state. As investment flowing its need of the our.
Fastest train between VSKP-BZA is duranto takes 4 hr 15 min, BZA-NLR 2 hr 45
min by Raj, Duranto etc. So fastest possible time is 7 hrs with out stops and slacks. So with 30 min slack and 30 min for stops makes it 8 hrs which is very much possible with a LHB rake.
***Visakhapatnam-Nellore Shatabadi express
Visakhapatnam - 5:55 am
Samalkot (SLO) - 7:35 7:36
Rajhamundry (RJY) - 8:34 8:36 ( Slack 10 min)
Tadepalligudem (TDD) - 9:07 9:08
Eeluru (EE) - 9:39 9:40
Vijayawada (BZA) - 10:45 10:55 (20 min slack here)
Ongole ( OGL) - 12:35 12: 36
Nellore (NLR ) - 14:00 ( Slack 10 min )
Only one train will be over taken between VSKP-BZA ( east coast), one between BZA-NLR ( that to 2 days in week)
******Nellore-visakhapatnam shatabdi express
Nellore(NLR) - 14 :30
Ongole (OGL) - 15:44 15:45
Vijayawada (BZA) - 17:40 17:50 (20 min slack here )
Eeluru (EE) - 18:27 18:28
Tadepalligudem (TDD) - 19:06 19:07
Rajhamundry (RJY) - 19:46 19:48
Samalkot - 20: 26 20:27
Visakhapatnam - 22:30 (15 min slack here)
No over takes between Nellore (NLR) to Samalkot (SLO)

i don't understand why you people are running behind shatabdi's , take a bow of double decker not even once it has gotten seats filled completely in either direction(tpty and gnt from kcg) we just need ordinary superfast with general quota in all stations think about garib not about show off things they dont serve the actual purpose

First of all lets upgarde all our tracks to 150kmph and then demand all important trains viewing demand we dont want shatabdi to run @60,70 all the way

Btw nobody asked for a double decker its just the whims and fancies of few politicians.And I don't think its appropriate to gauge patronage based on a DD with awkward timings,which is cramped no back rest and same fare as CC.
And I agree with u more than a Satabdhi we need more ICEs with avg speed >60.

SBC-MAS has 2 shathabdi express trains they always runs with full demand. But single trip DD struggling. How can you relate DD with shatabdi ??
If 150 kmph is criteria SC-PUNE, MAS-SBC, MAS-CBE shatandi express shouldn't be there.
There is good demand shatabdi express in coastal region, in a year or 2 it increases more.

Not possible at the moment coz the rake is maintained by Coaching depot Secunderabad, But if LPI gets a CDO sometime soon then that would be a great idea to extend all terminating trains at SC to LPI. Ajanta,Devagiri,Simhapuri,Visakha have CDO at secunderabad along with a few other trains.

Delhi-Ahmedabad (2min)- Mumbai
chennai-vijayawada or vizag- bhuvaneswar howarh

Note:General bogies/Tatkal skeme/sleeper are not available
