An important milestone for Visakhapatnam. The halting time of all trains will come down once the circular route in the shape of Bulb comes into operation.

Once this comes into operation, there will be no more competition between North and South bound trains at VSKP for the two tracks from Gopalpatnam RRI to VSKP. Waiting for that day!!!

Parking Charges for 2-Wheelers 12hrs - Rs 10/- and additional every 6 hrs - rs 5/- . Vskp station is Wi-Fi and information boards of using railwire are kept in huge hoardings in front entrance No1. Near Enquiry counter. Charts are not displayed in station and two kiosks are placed to inquire railway information. Luggage scanner is there and working but if u carry without putting in scanner no one I'll object.

There's a rail dhaba(a food court) on platform 1..reasonable prices..Indian and continental varieties..very hygenic..good quantity wise..
Probably a revamp of the old food courts..
Filter coffee@ ₹15 is very good:)

The General Travelling Crowd/Railfanning Tip:
In this train , for General coaches the crowd is very good in amount for boarding at VSKP. But still once you have boarded , everybody gets a seat (seat doesn't means ony lower sitting seat;the upper portion is also used a seat). Take your seat and go for a good sleep. It will be badly needed next whole day.
The crowd keeps on building up as it passes RJY , TNKU , BVRT , AKVD. But all of a sudden at BZA, the whole General bogie
...

gets emptied out.
From BZA to PUNE , Full empty General Coaches. Take your window seat and and enjoy the full day time journey. From Pune , then again it gets fair amount of "Inter city travelling people" for Mumbai on weekends.
PS: You will get window seat at BZA , only if you have boarded from VSKP. If you board from BZA, then you will get a seat but not a window seat. LOL
And Don't forget to keep a Power Pack for your Mobile phone as there is NO charging Socket for General coaches.
For Best Results, Do a railfanning trip from VSKP to PUNE in the month of June-July. Rains will give serious views to catch.

This train is a very huge demanded train from Odisha.
I am giving tip for Sleeper classes.
After boarding from BBS , go to Upper berth (in case having Lower berth seat , exchange with someone just for some time) and go to sleep. Telling you do this or else your whole "happy morning" will turn into a "Bad morning".
From BBS to VZM

, specially between KUR to CHE , this train runs as a Intercity train. SL classes are packed with daily travellers and waiting holders. Beggars will give you a headache and transgenders will suck up your money. (They are very shameless)
But once train reached VSKP , It all becomes COMPLETELY empty. Seriously i was shocked to see the complete empty and cleaned SL coach after i woke up. All thanks to Ratnachal express which takes away all the intercity day travellers.
After this the whole journey from VSKP to SBC is a awesome one with full of heavy crossings and views of Mighty Godavari and Krishna rivers.
After VSKP , the next cleaning is done at BZA station and after that from BZA to SBC , it runs as it is , but still the coach condition of these ECoR is quite good.
I would suggest the VSKP folks who wish to travel to Bangalore, Take this train.
Because it is the only Non-VSKP starting train to bangalore who have General quota for VSKP to SBC also. So BBS & VSKP both share same quotas.
Best chances of getting confirm seats if you book well 1 week ahead of time in SL. AC coaches are very badly demanded for this train.
For VSKP to SBC , you can easily opt SL class (unless its not some Festive season like Pongal or Diwali). Best thing is Food.
The pantry is quite good and warm-good quality food is provided.

What about from VSKP to BBS? Does it get annoying? I have to book from VSKP to BBS, SL class. I'm thinking between VSKP - SHM exp and Prashanti exp. I ve ruled out HWH mail, as I ve read its quite full in SL class. Do Advise. Thank you.

Go for VSKP-SHM Weekly SF.
Prashanti is very popular train here and acts as an evening time intercity for regular passengers.
Whereas VSKP-SHM Weekly is a less popular and weekly train in which tickets are also easily available.
