SCR making Godavari Express sucks. People are listing it as Queen of SCR, but it had already lost the sheen. Especially Section Controller making it trolling normal express. I am observing for 12727 / 12728 for last one month continuously.
1. Never on dot from Sec ‘bad
2. Covers SC - Kazipet with good speed, even though some times TPT
- NZM giving preference over this, last week section controller allowed 12707 , 5 min ahead of 12728 , it trailed until Kazipet where 12707 reached 13 min ahead of scheduled arrival and 12728 admitted with 8 min late.
3. From Kazipet to Warangal is another pathetic; either they will make it halted more than the scheduled halt of 2 min, generally from 5 to 15 min.
4. Reaching Warangal with general delay of 20 - 30 min.
5. From Warangal to Khamam, the run very fast like there is no another day, however with 1 halt introduced between WL - KMT, it is not able touch its earlier records.
6. Only thing we feel good about 12728 is, allowing it to over take 12616. But does it really require?
7. Once KMT is over, then stop, start and crawling oblivious observation. Every day un-officially it will be halted from Tondalagopavaram, Errupalem, Gangineni, Cheruvu Madhavaram, Kondapally, Rayanapadu and BZA NE Cabin. Hardly it touches 90 Kmph in this stretch.
8. Though it is able to reach Kondapally by 22:30, only admitting it to BZA with good delay from 10 - 40 min (never happened loco reversal within 20 min)
Even though there no other trains ahead of this in this section.
9. That is it, from BZA - VSKP, it is all depending on controller mood. Resulting 10 - 15 min daily delay to arrive VSKP.
The story of 12727 is too sad, Getting WAP-7 now a days regularly but making it run as WAG-5.
Regular over take by GHY weeklies bounded for South. Some times 17015 is also overtaking 12727 because of less stops between VSKP -RJY for 17015. We see the delay is happening on purpose as the same dealy at anaparti is being maintained at RJY.
Even though it reaches ahead of time to outer of BZA because of slack time, it would never admitted on time to BZA. And now a days the delay from BZA is increased to 1+ hour resulting 20 - 30 min delayed arrival to SC. Of course it never reached HYB on time any time.
I think it is good time to revert it back to its old avatar of 7/8 ( 7007/7008) avatar. It could save some money to public.
