Arrived BZA@18:30..15min before...Ratna at Gannavaram..Prashanti at NZD...
So even after VSKP diversion its able to arrive BZA 15 min early. People earlier used to try about time waste if run via VSKP. Better example for false propoganda by some members.
Agree..bt it arrived 15min before only bcs of Ratna OT..otherwise no chance..
ya but even it follows Ratna it can still arrive BZA on time. I really dont why SCR trolling ratna. Its used by many people of this region.
Also superfast express over taken by express is not that great.
Ya monna chusam ga Ratna ki free flow isthe 18:00 kalla BZA outer lo untadhi..so that amaravati also can run well...
Ratna arrived BZA..20min late..
Even if it did not overtake Ratna it can arrive on time at BZA provided Ratna runs on time. Skipping VSKP was a bad move by IR.
I guess, Amaravati arrival time Ratna ki, Ratna arrival time amaravati ki ichaaremo BZA lo unofficial ga :).
No...Okkosari bagane chestaru controlling..i have seen amravati arriving BZA at 19:20 after leaving DVD at 13:30..only bcs of Ratna..okko roju okkola..
Some experts are comparing the time taken between DVD and VZM and vice-versa for a long distance train to know the wastage of time.
Today is first run via VSKP
Also dis train daily needed
If vijayawada hubli train is amaravathi express then why this train named amaravathi express? can any one clear my doubt plz?
It seems Amravati overtaken Prashanti in style..nd all set to make grand entry to VSKP....
It seems Ecor controllers tight today..Durg vskp pass held up at SCM for Ratnachal crossing.All as per schedule.:P
Ratna arrived with 10 min late. With Amaravathi arriving VSKP , may be good days for Ratna.
anyone in vskp stn for welcoming amaravathi?
Auto-Archived due to Objections.

wow !! 12510 OT 12839 Mail at Annavaram. Don't know why they allowed OT as 12510 is RT and it has good slack in between BZA - MAS. Now i guess, 12510 will go BT to MAS.
Bcoz of 17210, 12861 waits at SLO for 8 mins and 12510 is closing in to SLO. 17488 is running good today because of only 1 OT till now.
17488 escaped OT from MFP - YPR even at EE. It has around 90 mins to cover EE - BZA stretch to be RT at BZA. 12839 Mail expected time at BZA is 22:00 now.
18047 reached BZA at 20:00 and left the race. Next to BZA is MFP - YPR, it OT 17488 at NZD finally. 17488 arrival at 21:00 freely. 12861 is at TDD now followed by 12510 and 12839. I hope only 17488, 12510 and 12839 will remain from BZA. 12510 will lead if there are no surprises again like 12839 OT 12510 :).
TT now updated on indianrail.gov.in, No change in overall arrival and departure at Vasco and Howrah. Looking forward for a railfan to capture it entering VSKP.
Hope the train maintains its TT and is allowed to overtake Prashanti at VSKP in HWH VSG run.
it WILL OVER TAKE prasanthi now. The only change required is DVD. DVD arrival can be 13:25
But still the erroneous TT as i said in my previious not rectified
CONFLICT IN REVISED TT
As per the PR of SWR,
Accordingly, Train No.18047 Howrah-Vasco-da-gama Amaravathi (04 days a Week) Express and Train 12254 Bagalpur-Yesvantpur Weekly Express will arrive/depart at Vizianagaram station at 11-35/11-37 hrs. instead of 11-40/11-55 hrs.; and arrive/depart at VISAKHAPATNAM at 12-35/12-55 hrs. and arrive/depart atDuvvada at 13-33/13-35 hrs. instead of 13-28/13-30 hrs., with effect from 01st July, 2015.
wef 1/7/15 I would like to say that
at VZM - Prasanthi Dep 11:35 Amaravati Dep 11:37
Nothing to worry about it bro. I don't think that there is any train in IR which 100% maintains its schedule at all intermediate stations. So I think Amaravati will trail Prashanti till VSKP and get starter ahead of it from VSKP. But indeed very glad that finally Vasco and Visakhapatnam are connected by rail even though this train is horrible in terms of maintenance and crowd.
I am travelling from MAO to VSKP on 7th Jul in this train, is maintenance that bad?
While booking MAO to VSKP was WL, so booked from MAO to BAM - RAC, felt it was better than trying for Tatkal.
I had travelled in this train twice once in December 2007 and May 2008 first time from UBL to VSG in SL class coach was an old and dirty one second time it was from LD to VSG in UR it was crowded, dirty.
Sometimes I have seen this train with one or two new SL coaches too at VSG. But mostly bad coaches from outside. MAO to VSKP 24 hours journey that too in July which is offseason so you can expect limited rush so more chances of a somewhat better rake. But you can very much enjoy the scenic route it travels through.
End of VSKP skipping with today's run....
Gooty twins haul Amaravati express towards Castlerock in heavy monsoon rain in the Braganza ghats, SWR, Karnataka.
awesm bro awesm..HATS OFF TO UH _/\_ STunning, breath taking, marvelous all of your captures...u r just adding more glamour to iri
4 Trains Re-routed through Vishakapatnam wef July'15
18047 is the first among the 4 diverted trains that will enter VSKP on July 1st.
Will Ecor release such PR in the interest of public?
Errors in TT of 1st three trains.
Prashanti dep time at VZM is 11:35.How come these trains dep at 11:37 towords same side.
Is there any chance these train halts either dudhsagar waterfall or dudhsagar
In return direction it does halt at DDS for mandatory brake testing. In VSG HWH direction it is doubtful as most tourists visit the falls in the morning and return to Londa in the evening by Goa express and regarding tourists coming from Goa end they mostly travel till Kulem and hire SUVs or other means till the falls.
But suv's are not available in monsoon we are planning to visit on 14 july
I heard people also take rides in freight trains from Kulem till the falls by contacting the station master at Kulem and the loco pilots of freight trains. I had once travelled in this train when it used to run just between Vasco to BZA in the year 2005 that time the falls were not much famous so it just skipped both places recently this situation has changed with lots of tourists visiting the falls and even trekking.
I mostly travel in Goa express here which definitely halts at DDS. Amaravati I don't travel much but members here can help you out.
yes.. Amaravati does halt at DDS towards VSG.... return is doubtful as it is being banked up the ghats... so the chances of Train halting at DDS towards pune are 50-50. not sure
Return only Goa express halt I can confirm but that too can change as per the mindset of SWR management system as halting an uphill train at DDS gives no benefit to them neither its technically required infact it would be more convenient to them if uphill trains just start at QLM and then halt at CLR itself. But I have seen one of my relative residing at Kulem taking Goa express and getting down at Sonalium where he was posted around 3 years back.
