Seen here is Bezawada WAP4 22589 in mps action with one of the best maintained trains in IR 12737 Kakinada Port - Secunderabad Jn Gowthami Superfast Express
Many more Happy returns to the Darling :)
3 to 4 years back e train timings change avutayani chepparu but change cheyaledu
it is always having a huge waiting list and this is only non ac available train from kakinada to secunderabad daily
it is better to introduce one more train from secunderabad to kotipally
so that the route will be utilized and extra rush will be cleared
secunderabad - kotipally express
secunderabad : 19:30
kazipet : 21:05
warangal : 21:20
samalkot : 3:40
kakinada : 4:00-4:20
draksharama : 5:20
Kotipally : 5:45
If this has to happen where will have the maintainence sir?? Kotipally can't have it, tough to think of SC having it.
Change chesaru AC express start chesinappudu but backfire avvatam valla same TT continue chestunnaru...
All festival rush.

For Sept 12th, the availability status from SC to TDD is RAC 137. If I book a berth now,will it get confirmed by the the journey date or shall I look other options for a confirmed berth between SC and TDD ?
The chances of confirmation is gud, book it
I found that RJY-SC has been made GNWL, instead of PQWL. Is it correct. It means I need not book my ticket from Samalkot as I used to all these days!!
book from rjy only from now
Yes from AUG 15 RJY will be converting into GNWL see this

Bza should be avoided from bza to sc at least for gnwl. Mtm and ns should have gnwl.
So it's going to run with 26 coaches from Aug 15th?
Not from Aug15th.. SCR has sent list of few trains to make 26coacher so i think they need to get permission from rb to increase coaches to 26.. Gowthami has fair chances to become 1st scr train to run with 26 coaches.
Thank God!! Saved on a few rupees!!
From Aug 15 all stations are given GNWL. Now BZA, WL also GNWL. Seems soon its get 26 coaches

Isn't it is valid case for Objection ? :)
Here posting both side availability. Its surprising change and help full to the people if started as separate posting.
why this train is maintaining as a super fast express ?
it is halting at so many stations in between vijayawada and secunderabad
only based on the speed it is telling as a super fast express but it is having more halts even than a normal express
This train is in service since 1980's. 70-80% of its present halts are there since its inception. Oneof the finest n best maintained train of SCR got superfast status in October 2006 after Ruby jubilee celebrations. It's not easy to remove an existing halt for a train that too a popular one. BTW, what extra halts does this train has when compared to others?
You are right all the halts for this same as of now which were before it was a SF...If my memory serves right Only Aler was added and deleted and again added.
This train has bit of reverse pattern to Godavari which has more halts in Godavari dists and less in between BZA-SC, where as this one has more halts between BZA-SC section and many use this as connectivity from there to various areas in godavari dists.
Gowthami also used to have a Sleeper Slip coach to Bitragunta in 1990's, that sleeper used to be attached to a passenger from BZA to Bitragunta.
Why is the base fare of Goutami is 265 from SCto RJY
Why is base fare of 07706 pushkaram spl HYB to VSK is 375 froom SC to RJY?
Is tatkal fare included in special train?
Yes, i guess, pushkaram spls are with tatkal charge.
