Daily many people travel from VSKP, VZM, CPP, CHE, GNPR, PLH, NWP, PSA, SPT, IPM, BAM to BBS/KUR/PURI/CTC to catch long distance trains going towards North India though there are many trains but an ICE starting from VSKP is missing so people have to depend on the weeklies (which is very difficult) in the morning or Train # 17016 Visakha Exp (This starts late and its slow). Similarly people coming from BBS have to depend on Train # 12703 Falaknuma SF exp which is already very crowded. So it would be better if an ICE starts @ 6:00 AM in VSKP.
VSKP : 6:00 (D)

Electrification has to be done between NWP and GNPR so that there can be EMU's to GNPR from BAM/PSA/VSKP . And also overnight Exp from BBS/PURI is very much needed.

This matter now delayed by 15 days;initial plan was to run from 1st july But now seems some TT issues at other stations,So still takes time;
This is a Zonal level decision and nothing to do with any political/passenger lobbying

Many people daily travels from BBS/CTC, KUR & PURI to BAM, IPM,SPT,PSA, NWP, CHE, VZM & VSKP and vicerversa. So ECoR had introduced an ICE (Train # 18411) from BBS to VSKP but it has as many as 25 halts between BBS & VSKP and in one way it can be called as passenger train rather than express train as it takes 8 hrs. The very purpose of introducing an ICE is becoming void as people who want to travel early from BBS to VSKP are taking Train # 18463 Prasanthi exp and if they miss it they have the weeklies Anga, Amaravati & HWH - PDY exp and no one is boarding the ICE as it is super slow. So it will be better if that ICE speed is increased (along with increase in coaches with Pantry car) and if it covers the distance in 6:30 mins and it...
more...
could act as a link exp to 18463 and it would be better 18463 is restricted between VSKP and SBC. For eg: ICE starts at 5:30/6:00 at BBS and 12/12:30 and 18463 can start at 1 PM as usual (if ICE gets delayed then automatically 18463 will also gets delayed & viceversa in the reverse direction) and similarly 18464 reaches at 1:15 and ICE can start at 2/2:30 and can reach BBS 8:30/9. In this way lot of fuel and man power can be saved and that rake can used for some other purpose.

I guess, it will be tough to increase the speed with the stops it has. With a SF tag, 12839 Mail is taking 7:30 mins for 11 halts and this ICE takes 7hrs 55 mins for 25 halts with express tag. For 1st 166kms, itself it has 14 halts, after that for around 280 kms 11 halts. It still takes correct time for its halts i guess. 18463/64 started from VSKP in the beginning. Later it moved to BBS.
