As an engineering 1st year student from Vizag studying in Delhi,I was very happy when this train was announced as I thought I wouldn't have to waste two complete days going home travelling by SJ,Samata and Link.But after this train's introduction,its timetable promptly led me to book 2 sets of return journeys by Air India as it was much more comfortable paying 4k for 2hrs rather than 3k for 36 hrs.Vizag-Delhi will be having 5 daily flights (6 considering unreliable Spicejet) starting late November and this train will not even be a choice for majority of the flight takers because of its schedule.Many argue that the timetable has been prepared so due to scheduling constraints.But,when AC trains are now such important money-spinners and expensive LHB rakes have been provided for this train,I fail to see the justification for this horrendous timetable which makes this train slower than both SJ and Samata,trains...

which give 6 AC coaches in capacity a day.
I agree that NDLS-VSKP via BZA is a route that does not warrant 7 3A's daily (planned) in addition to existing capacity,let alone 5 2A's,but that does not mean that IR should just run this train for the sake of running it.This train was born out of political compulsions,but IR should try to make the best out of the given circumstances.A total of 5 coaches (2X3A and 3X2A) can be removed and augmented in trains which need them.In the meanwhile IR should improve this train's schedule and wait for passenger traffic to pickup and then add coaches as necessary.
I hope IR wakes up and seriously tries to improve the train's occupancy.
P.S. A departure about 20-25 min. after Chennai GR/Raj/Dur can be feasible with an evening arrival at VSKP in about 28-29 hours.Only a suggestion,please give any other alternatives!

What can I say about "political compulsions"
The Vijayawada lobby is strong and such a move will only serve to create tensions in the state!

will be so helpful
Closing Remarks: Timing of a train is decided with the co=ordination of other passing Railways depending upon maintenance facilities available at
terminating station. This train belongs to Northern Railway and the maintenance facilities is available in night time at New Delhi.
Hence, timings are fixed as per the convenience of the maintenance time at New Delhi

I think all of us would be extremely happy if this train's demand picks up.But I am sceptical about it because of the current demand for such a train.
I will concede that a non-AC SF would do much better,but our politicos wanted a Vijayawada Rajdhani which became an AC Express and on a whim of a minister became VSKP AC Express.Its degradation will not be allowed further without protests.
And coming to SC AC Exp,we have a 16 coach GR which usually runs with 90% occupancy and a Duronto with 80% occupancy
...

on the same day in addition to Godavari,Vishakha,Nanded,Janmabhoomi.So the AC Exp, which believe me or not gets most of its seats sold,is not "more empty than AP AC SF."
This route sees a lot of last minute bookings and usually 100 seats on both the Duronto and ACSF are sold

Yes..the same very way..Smata & SJ SF along with Biweekly SF..approx thy hav AVL berth..as shown smewhere in earlier blog for this same very train...& hence as of nw, wthout intermediate passenger..this AC SF also will remain AVL!!
And again, for intermediate station, so many lot avails!!
Anyway...the basic question is: which train this AC SF is in RSA with??? Do the Rake really hav any TAT for other slot or no??

With Vijayawada being declared as the capital of the residuary state of Andhra Pradesh,an overnighter should be introduced between BBS/VSKP and BZA for the public's convenience...In my view it would be better to start the train from BBS,because the districts of Srikakulam,Vizianagaram and also the sizable chunk of Telugus residing in the southern part of Odisha would be benefited.

Good one. But, VSKP - LTT doesn't have much halts from VSKP - BZA and it takes 7 hrs. With more halts, this train requires some slacks i guess. Also, back to back trains between VSKP - BZA via BVRM route like 17479, VSKP - LTT, why this one also in same route. Also instead of BZA, it shud be taken to GNT as BZA around 6 am is full with trains 12840, 18463, 12296, Raptisagar group and VSKP - LTT. This can reach BZA around 5:30 to reach GNT at 6:30 or 7 am.

Sir,more than 30-40% demand to Hyderabad is because all the government offices are present there.Once the capital is shifted to Vijayawada,won't people need good connectivity to the city,I mean that was the sole basis on which that region was declared the capital.The existing trains which provide overnight connection have meagre allocation in respect to the quota,and coming to the connection to Vijayawada from Uttarandhra,people still rely on RTC buses.So,a train which connects two important cities is not unwarranted,because passengers of the intermediate stations will also be benefited.

Entry# 899218            Tags   Past Edits
The Kishore Vaigyanik Protsahan Yojana or the KVPY,as it is commonly called,is one of the most prestigious examinations for the Science students of +1 and +2 classes.So,it was not surprising that a large number of students applied for writing the exam from Visakhapatnam,hoping that they would clear it.
The exam,slated for the 27th of October was initially to be held at Vizag itself.However,as luck would have it,the examination centre was shifted to Bhubaneshwar,the capital of Odisha,
for fear of the ongoing Samaikyandhra agitation, only before 10-12 days of the date of the exam,leaving
...
more...
many students in the haywire,as they were confused whether to
write it or not.In the end,many of them dropped out,however,I was a part of a small portion of students who decided to write the exam.
And then,came the million dollar question---How would we go there?The trains were already deep in WL,not GNWL,but RLWL and nobody could expect that RLWL 30 in 3A
would confirm.I was personally disappointed that 11019/Konark had already gone into WL,as its early morning arrival at around 4:25 a.m. would have suited us perfectly.And flights were out of question,as the relatively small journey of around 25 min was being charged around Rs.3500/-, much higher than the expected Rs.2300.
So,after a lot of searching, the idea of booking tickets from Vizianagaram (VZM) struck my father's mind and we saw a train that would take us to our destination-
18438/Bhawanipatna Bhubaneswar Link Express.The sight of available tickets was rejoiced,however there was a catch.The train was to arrive at 8:25 a.m. and
my exam was scheduled at 9:00 a.m. We couldn't possibly take such a risk with IR and tickets were booked for the 26th of October,such that we would arrive on that
morning itself and by the end of the day,we had confirmed tickets in our hands.
Now came the question of the return journey..We were lucky to get confirmed reservation from BBS to VZM (again) in none other than 11020 /Konark Express,perhaps
the only neatly maintained train towards Vizag from Bhubaneswar. With tickets all set ,accommodation was arranged in Hotel Ginger,we started preparing in earnest for
the exam.
Then came the rains.For those who believe that Cyclone Phailin was bad,these rains were worse (atleast for us Vizagites,for which the effect of the cyclone was no more
than some random slight drizzles).We couldn't even get out from our houses as it was raining so heavily that all the roads were reduced to mini-aquariums.
The rainfall continued and battered the city continuously for almost 5 days,stopping in rather infrequent gaps of 30 min.In the news-SEVERAL TRAINS CANCELLED IN ODISHA,
AS HEAVY RAINFALL CONTINUES.
The departure for 24th had been cancelled,however the one for 25th ran,albeit with a small delay.I had expected that my train would depart,however we were in for a
shock,our train had been cancelled.So,on the night of 25th,expecting 11019/Konark to run,we went to the railway station and bought general tickets upto BBS.To our surprise,
passengers were getting down in hordes,in rather large numbers and we got to know that the train was diverted via Rayagada,Sambhalpur and Angul.
The train had arrived with a 20 min delay at Visakhapatnam at 2120 instead of the scheduled 2100.In the meanwhile,we found the TTE and tickets were issued for 3A and
we sat down in our allotted seats B3 15,16 SU & SL.We didn't know yet that we were in for a hell of a ride,and I was mentally prepared for arriving there at around
10 am.
In the meanwhile we had our pre-packed dinners and were happily listening to songs(there were working chargers in our compartment).It was 2230,the train had been in
VSKP for almost an hour and showed no signs of departing anytime soon.We soon found out that someone had died in S7,and that it was the cause for the holdup.The already
diverted train which arrived around 20 min late,had racked up a delay of 1 hr 45 min,as the train slowly crept out of VSKP at 2305.FOllowing a sedate run to
Vizaiangaram with an arrival around 0015,we decided to call it a day and happily tucked into our berths.
In Andhra,the Intermediate education,or the 11th and 12th classes,are given the utmost priority,and corporate junior colleges rule the roost.The promise of a seat in
a good engineering college makes many people join their children in them resulting in cramped classes of 65-70 members.The timings: 8:00 in the morning to 7:30 in the
evening and we ar still expected to study around 2-3 hrs at home,leading many people to have dark circles under their eyes and hungry for sleep.
So,we literally slept like babies and it was around 10:30 am that we got up,a full 4 hrs of extra sleep,expecting to be in Bhubaneswar,only to find out to our dismay,
that we had only reached Sambhalpur.I knew that it would take around 6-7 hours from there and was disappointed at the prospect of spending almost a whole day in the
train.We had a quick breakfast (Bread-Omelette Rs.40/- a plate,felt like a ripoff),and soon started revising for the exam.
However the revision did not last for long,and we were back to listening to songs and playing games on our mobiles.In the meanwhile,we departed from Samobhalpur at around
1035.We soon started to run at around 70-75 kmph and after a non-stop run involving many slow-downs,in which at points,we were literally crawling,we reached Angul
hat around 1:45 in the afternoon.We stopped there for around 10 min and within no time,we came to a halt at Talcher Road for around 5 min and we soon tookoff from the station.For the entire journey,I do not think that the train ever reached MPS,however we were cruising steadily at 80-90 kmph,for long
stretches.In around 40-45 minutes we reached Dhenkanal where we halted for around 2 min.

I must say that Konark's pantry is one of the best I've ever seen on a train,as our lunch was delivered hot and for the first time,the rice was boiled properly.We had
ordered a Vegetarian Thali,which consisted of Rice,Rasam,Aloo curry,Dahi,Papad and a glass of mineral water.The last time I travelled in Konark,the food was even better,
and even though the standards had fallen,it was definitely way above average.
From Dhenkanal,we were getting a little bit restless,as there were no signs of reaching Bhunbaneswar soon.We continued to enjoy the scenery outside,as frankly,we had
nothing else to do.
Odisha is no doubt one of the most backward states in the country and the condition of its villages from the train was pitiable.There was signs of very much visible poverty
everywhere and I was appalled that even major stations didn't have refreshment stalls and we had not packed much snacks as we had initially expected an overnight
journey,resulting us in going a bit hungry.
Finally at 4:50 in the evening the train came to a halt at Bhubaneswar,onto PF#3,and we had a car waiting outside to take us to our hotel.What was supposed to be a
short and sweet 7 hr overnight journey,turned out to be an 18 hr journey,all around the state providing us glimpses of the real state.Bhubaneswar turned out to be very
different,like a different scene altogether from the towns and villages that we had come through.
Getting down the train, we hurried outside,bidding adieu to the empty rake which had carried us for over 18 hrs.
Overall,exept for the delay,the journey itself was nice and I forgot to mention,our coach was satisfactorily clean,except for a few baby cockroaches here and there..
Sorry for the long delay in posting this and also the long report..I do not particularly like noting down loco numbers and everything,so I have not taken anything
down...

Thank You!

prestige..even though you plan to do engineering.

This train leaves in the night.
and in cancelled list, this train's number doesn't exist which means its running on time.
the rest, it may get regulated in the section.
